I’m still listening to new music and it seems the proximity of SXSW is triggering a cascade of releases. Here are some samples from this week’s listening.

Loc Title Artist Comments UK Need Love Dr Meaker Laid back jazz-blues-funk with female vocals, rather than the dance track you might expect. USA The Deep and Lovely Quiet SubtractiveLAD Dreamy, slightly metallic echo-acoustic of the shoe-gaze, Engineers variety. *Would not be out of place in a Robert Rich concert. USA Culpa De La Luna Rupa and the April Fishes Pretty delicious stuff – imagine early Madness as world music with female vocals and you’re maybe close USA Let The Riverrun Carly Simon Verging on gospel, this is a great track from Carly Simon as she is now (rather than the blast from the past you usually get from her Best-Of fodder) Let me know what you think – I’ll keep listening and if people like the reports I’ll keep posting too.
