Tanya Lacey kinda reminding us of Lady Sovereign during her rap intro and breaks in this new “Too Many Cooks” video. Her colorful vibrance and bounciness kind of reminds us of a cross between M.I.A. and Rita Ora – loving the new playful vibe she’s bringing.

Jazz musician and two time Grammy Award winner Marcus Miller today released his new album, Renaissance. In the above video, Marcus speaks on the background of the album and shares his recording process with us.

About inspiration of the album’s title and theme, Marcus says:

“The last of our heroes are checking out and we are truly entering a new era. Politically, things have polarized and are coming to a head. Musically, we’ve got all these cool ways to play and share music – MP3 files, internet radio and satellite radio – but the music is not as revolutionary as the media. It’s time for a rebirth.”

Enter our contest to win Renaissance.

New Track: Jack Davey – “Howl At The Moon”

 

J*Davey’s lady member Jack Davey will soon be releasing a self-produced garage rock EP called L0-F!. Inspired by the saucy Betty Davis and the boisterous Iggy Pop, Jack lays it down with her impressive “Howl At The Moon” track as our first taste. Makes us want to wind our hips and lasso something around with our bad selves.
