Animatedcartunes Releases Georgia Anne Muldrow and Adriana Evans

ae_covergam2

The indie soul and hip hop label animatedcartunes has some heavy releases out now in Georgia Anne Muldrow‘s Early and Adriana Evans‘ re-issue of Nomadic. Videos and downloads after the jump.

Adriana Evans’ 1997 self-titled debut was critically acclaimed but commercially panned, leaving her disenchanted with the music industry. This led to a seven year hiatus in Evans’ musical career, followed by the limited sophomore release, Nomadic. Nomadic was released on Evans’ independent label to be sold only at shows and on her website… until now. Animatedcartunes is proud to re-issue this hard-to-find classic, now enhanced to include a music video for the lead single “7 Days”. The album draws its inspiration from many genres of music including samba, reggae, rock and hip-hop, with soul firmly rooted at the base.

Georgia Anne Muldrow is a singer, producer, songwriter born and raised in Los Angeles, known for her abstract production and writing style. In 2005, she introduced herself to the indie scene with the self-released Worthnothings EP, eventually signed to Stones Throw and began to get attention from artists like Mos Def, SA-RA, and Erykah Badu.  These are Georgia Anne Muldrow’s “Early” recordings. She wrote, produced and recorded this lean, ten track album entirely by herself. Seventeen years young with an old soul, Georgia managed to blend the composing acumen of Roy Ayers and J Dilla with the vocal stylings of Billie Holiday and Lauryn Hill.

Norah Jones Releases New Album Today

Check out Norah Jones‘ new video “Chasing Pirates”, off her album The Fall, released today on Blue Note Records.  Featured on Rolling Stone‘s Hot List, the lead single “Chasing Pirates” immediately announces her new direction. Entertainment Weekly wrote that “‘Chasing Pirates’ is a bluesy surprise and welcome change of pace,” adding that “Jones’ voice remains as lovely as ever.” From the swaying rock thump of “Stuck” to an intimate ballad like “Back to Manhattan,” one thing that hasn’t gone away on The Fall is the distinctiveness and expressiveness of Jones’s singing.

An exciting evolution from her previous three releases, The Fall has the feeling of an artist growing into a new phase in her creative development. Beyond the changes in the conception of her own sound, she maintains that her songwriting is at the very foundation of her new approach.
