New Album from Oceana Out Tomorrow

German-born and French-raised singer with Caribbean roots, Oceana joins soul music of the ’60s with modern beats and contemporary texts on her debut album Love Supply, in stores tomorrow, which features the infectious single “Cry Cry.” As the child of a musician, she had the chance to meet entertainers at a young age, including James Brown’s famous saxophonist Maceo Parker. It was Maceo’s push that made her take the leap to a career as a vocalist. Now using her personal experiences, she writes and sings lyrics about subjects that connect everyone: desire, love and life. Love Supply mixes a fine blend of pop, funk, R’n'B, and reggae for a well rounded, top quality record.

Quadron’s Unofficial Video: “Jeans”

Thanks to our friend Maiya at Blind I for the Kids for turning us onto this new unofficial Quadron video (but with the appearance of vocalist Coco, it’s official enough). We can’t get enough Quadron even after their show in Brooklyn last night. But really, what does being ‘into your old jeans’ mean? Anyone?

Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean covered by Aloe Blacc & The Grand Scheme

Any project soul singer Aloe Blacc takes on, as he is continually showing, will be infused with the emotion and passion that gets both the guys and the gals tingly all over. His hit song, “I Need a Dollar,” was featured on HBO’s “How to Make It in America,” and sparked major attention. With a bouncing bass line, clean blues guitar riffs, and a sax and trumpet section from The Grand Scheme, Billie Jean’s intensely personal lyrics are brought out in an entirely new way in one of the best covers of the song we’ve heard. Look out for more Aloe Blacc videos in the near future, and if you’re in the New York area, don’t miss him at Giant Step’s Summerstage on July 17th on the Central Park main stage.
