Video: Siaira Shawn – “Prototype”

 

Our girl Siaira Shawn has the sweetest voice. Here, she is performing the popular cover for Andre 3000′s “Prototype,” and yet still bringing something you’ve never quite heard before. The lady is a gem – her voice is like a blend of 90′s classic R&B mixed with underground neo-soul in its heyday.

Don’t forget to check out her “Icarus” single that dropped earlier this month.

Last month we posted about LA-based Pollyn’s “How Small We Are” single, and today we have for you the video for the spectacular b-side, “Mysterons,” a Portishead cover. The video is directed by the band’s own Adam Jay Weissman – pretty fancy, eh?

We are super duper looking forward to their upcoming albun, Living in Patterns, out October 4th.

One of our favorite space tune maestros, Om’Mas Keith, shares his experience preparing for the Red Hot + Rio 2 compilation. He talks Portuguese, his father, and coração (heart). And be sure you don’t miss Om’Mas performing “Mistérios” with Mia Doi Todd and flexing his shiny new Portuguese skills. It’s an awesome tune and Om’Mas’ voice on this track just tickles us.

New Track: Siaira Shawn – “Unthinkable” (Cover) + MP3

 

Ahhh! Much excitement. Our good homegirl Siaira Shawn out of Oakland just released a super rad cover of Alicia Keys’ “Unthinkable.” Keep a lookout for this lady; her mellow sing-song ways can make anything better.

And for those that have just been put on, check out Siaira’s EP, The In Between, that dropped last year. It’s a free download on Bandcamp!

New Track: Sonnymoon – “Yes” (Beyonce Cover) + MP3

 

Sonnymoon has a new droplet of cosmic goodness for us and we happily accept. The duo has selected an interesting variety of reworks and covers so far with Drake, Flying Lotus, and now Beyonce’s “Yes” from Dangerously In Love. It’s not every day that artists can pull off such an eclectic spread in the way these two have.

Amidst Dane Orr’s jittery synths, echoey claps, and laser sounds, Anna Wise works Beyonce’s original R&B stylings into her own fanciful stew, leaving you once again, floating.
