Scrimshire’s “Home” is the perfect downtempo track. With its welcome hints of world sounds, it reminds of something you may hear on the Buddha Bar series. Vocalist Faye Houston takes us into the forest and across the fields in the video above.

“Home” is the first single from London based producer Scrimshire’s upcoming album, The Hollow.

Marilyn Carino Releases ‘Little Genius’ + Album Release Party & Free MP3


Brooklyn bred Marilyn Carino is a certifiable badass with a colorful history and a passion for cemeteries. She came into music by working at recording studios where she found herself unconsciously stepping into her natural musicianship. Claiming her roots in jazz and classic country, the singer creates a dark, smoky brand of electronic rock with a voice that is both rich and commanding.

Not only does she sing, but Carino also performs all the recording, mixing, production, and instrumentation on her Little Genius album, which dropped today. Check out our favorite track, “King of the World,” and download for free below! Also, tonight, NYC folks can check her out at her album release party! Details below.
