Muhsinah Releases ‘Gone’ Free Double EP

 

Muhsinah’s newest project is just a little too incredible to be free. Over the past couple years, we’ve observed Muhsinah’s social network musings and seen her process her growth as an artist, all the while wondering what’s next. What’s clear is that Muhsinah did not spend a bit of that time in vain. A creative to the core, Muhsinah has chosen to traverse new territory with her sound and pulled it off flawlessly.

Throwing in some rock, dance, and even punk, Muhsinah might go through a single track sharing likeness with both Kenna and Brandy, while still being herself. She’s your secret favorite radio hit, your throwback punk jam from middle school, and your underground genre-shifter all at the same time – homegirl is not playing any games.

After winning a trip to Aruba to open for Jennifer Hudson, an inspired Muhsinah turned a single EP into her Gone “double EP” – meaning two EP’s in one. The first EP is called Urban, while the second one is called Suburban. Enter your email into the widget below to download Gone!

New Track: Nikko Gray – “Sand”

 


A few days ago, a mysterious track named “Sand” appeared on Nikko Gray’s Bandcamp page with the artist labeled as ~. Nikko is definitely one of the voices on this entrancing number and we have our hunches about the other – but we’ll let the ambiguity remain as Nikko seems to prefer. The beginning portion of the instrumental has a strong resemblance to something we’ve heard before, we just can’t put our finger on it – either way, we like it! The track is available on Bandcamp with a “name your price” option.

The first single from Björk’s forthcoming Biophilia is here! Sounding something like a lullaby in space, “Crystalline” sends you into a drowsy meditative state and then yanks you right out with its dramatic alien invasion closing. Aliens with machine guns, though. Biophilia is rumored to release on September 26th and will take the form of 10 iPad apps, one for each track. Sounds like it’s going to be one for the books, and of course, we’d expect nothing less.
