Artist: Little May “Home”
Album: Dew Process
Australia’s Little May have just released a brand new track titled, “Home.” Off of their yet to be named forthcoming debut album due out later this year, “Home” is a dark tangle of raw lyrics, honest and haunting melodies and voices upon voices upon voices upon voices.
Artist: Stone Foundation “Beverley”
Album: A Life Unlimited
Off of their forthcoming album A Life Unlimited, which is due out on August 9, “Beverley” from British soul outfit Stone Foundation, harkens back to Paul Weller’s peak days with The Style Council, Acid Jazz Galliano and into James Taylor Quartet territory. With perfect harmonies, glowing organs, infectious brass and a laid back funky summer swing moving throughout, the track is instantly recognizable and brimming with soulful nostalgia.
