Fresh Friday: 23rd October

Posted by Dominic | October 23, 2015 | MUSIC

It was almost a year ago that Seinabo Sey introduced herself to the UK with a stunning performance on Jools Holland, and we’ve been eagerly anticipating her debut album ever since. Pretend is finally here – and it’s more or less everything we hoped for, melding timeless songwriting with modern electro-soul production and more than a handful of great hooks. Listen for yourself on Deezer using the player below.

Jazz is as much a part of New Orleans’ DNA as gumbo and Mardi Gras, and for the past twenty years Hot 8 Brass Band have been one of the genre’s most prominent and popular flag bearers. Their new album is a raucous celebration of their two decades together, featuring new tracks alongside re-recorded versions of some of their best known hits, including their cover of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’. ‘Laissez les bon temps rouler’ (‘Let the good times roll’) is New Orleans’ unofficial motto – and never is it more apt than when the Hot 8 are in town.

And finally, this week also sees the release of the new one from Canadian four-piece Half Moon Run, Sun Leads Me On. It’s a lovely collection of thoughtful, melodic, earthy indie-rock from the Montreal quartet, one that fans of the likes of Mystery Jets and Villagers should enjoy. Listen for yourself below.
