  • CODY CHESNUTT | Under the Spell of the Handout MP3

    Cody ChessnuTT is back, and he’s doin’ work. The neo-soul master’s last LP was back in 2002, the marvel “The Headphone Masterpiece” — a sprawling, deep and spiritually honest lo-fi double album he recorded in 1997 while trying to wrap his head around life, love, and youth — living in his mother’s house in Atlanta. In 2002, the Roots remade a ChesnuTT stunner, â...

  • NOOSA | Fear of Love MP3

    Noosa is the newest project of New York artists Sky Barbarick and Matt Buszko. And they’ve released a new single, “Fear of Love”, the title track to an upcoming EP. It’s also a pretty dance track with a sweet groove and spacey synth-pop melodies. It’s right in the wheelhouse of fans of Everything But the Girl, circa the good stuff like “Walking Wounded”. The track circles...

  • PORTALS | Mixtape No. 2 (Gracie | Bracelet) MP3

    Posting a track from a Portals mixtape might start to become as regular as highlighting a recent track off a BEKO mix. Portals is a new collective music site featuring the collaborative efforts of 16 different music blogs. To start Portals off on the right foot, they posted a “Mixtape No. 1″ that included 16 unreleased tracks chosen by their bloggers. Well, they’ve got a second mixtape out (with 1...

  • ACTIVE CHILD | Sweet Dreams (Eurythmics) MP3

    Active Child (aka Pat Grossi) performed the Eurythmics’ 1983 pop classic “Sweet Dreams” on Australia’s Triple J’s “Like A Version”. Grossi takes his harp and his high-pitched falsetto stylings and makes good use of them both on this marvelous rendition. Annie Lennox would have to love this. Watch video of him performing it at the Triple J website, where you can also downl...

  • NITE JEWEL | Visions (Stevie Wonder cover) MP3

    Nite Jewel (aka Ramona Gonzalez) covers the Stevie Wonder gem, “Visions”, from off his 1973 masterpiece “Innervisions”. This cover version was created in honor of Yours Truly site founder Will Abramson’s late sister Lauren. Nite Jewel’s moving rendition of this heavily spiritual ballad is stripped down to the song’s core melody. Wonder’s song is about peace as u...

    oOoOO have a new EP coming out April 4th, “Our Loving Is Hurting Us”, via Tri Angle Records. This muted first single, “NoWayBack”, features the voice of Butterclock (aka Laura Clock). The song begins with tip-toeing synth, heavy bass and the gauzy, hypnotic flow of Butterclock’s vocals. There’s a dub and drone feel to “NoWayBack”, with it’s pretty haunting atm...

The band posted this note on its website, with the song: “A little more than a week ago a friend of mine suggested that we do a cover of The Weeknd. The idea was definitely a stretch for me but I figured it would be an interesting challenge. The end result of our version of The Weeknd’s â...

    Yellow Ostrich posted a single, “Marathon Runner”, off his upcoming release, “strange land”, out March 6th via Barsuk. The song begins familiarly for fans of Alex Schaaf, who know just how good he’s become at using recorded vocal samples, loops, and playing with harmonics. But a few seconds into the track, it takes a decidedly different course from some of the more eclectic songs on â...

It’s a cool mix of romance and trip-hop styled disjointed electronics that wind around the refrain, “All I wanna see is where you’ll go without me …” This song follows her 2011 record “Boys Club” and the stunning two-song EP, “Killing Time​/​Your Ever After”. “Killing T...

    Blusher’s icy cool soundscapes are electronic slow waltzes and meditations in loneliness and displacement. His latest record, released at the end of last year, “It Happened In My Memory”, is a cohesive ode to somber moods, romantic inclinations and haunting textures. The record contains just seven songs, but they’re moving in their sparseness. The vocals are buried and muted beneath slow an...
