Stac and Royce Wood Jr. got together this past December to put together a live session for Mary Anne Hobbs, exclusively for XFM. According to Stac, the experience was very surreal:

It was crazy. The only day that we could do it all was on Friday 23rd December. STRESS! So much preparation went into it, the OneTaste choir came and sang, The Dans got involved on bass guitar and kit (they play regularly for Jono McCleery and Jamie Woon, they are bad ass), Nick Lee from Amber States hopped on the guitar and Jamie Woon grabbed a mic, as did I. It was all very exciting.

Above, you’ll find the video for “Wet,” which will be out on February 13th! Enjoy.

It is a new day. D’Angelo returns to the spotlight after over 10 years with a European tour that kicked off in Stockholm, Sweden yesterday. Above, catch a clip from his performance of “Chicken Grease” and below, you’ll find video from “Sh*t Damn Motherf*cker.” A few new songs were unveiled as well, including “Sugar Daddy,” “The Charade,” and “Another Life.”

In watching these videos, it’s evident that D’Angelo is happy to be up on stage and share with his adoring fans. And in case you were second guessing, indeed the man is killing it and singing like he’s always known – hopefully a prelude to a new era of some earth-shifting music.

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.

Earlier this month we shared the video for When Saints Go Machine’s “Parix,” and today we have a pretty freaking amazing live performance of the same track. Not only is the video gorgeous, the mood is heightened with the echoey acoustics, the intricacies of the piercing production, and the haunting sound of the leading vocalist’s quivering song.
