New Track: Chico Mann – “Light of Love” ft. Alecia Chakour

 

Definitely don’t hear too much soulful Hanukkah music during the holiday season, whereas a variety of Christmas music always seems to be in abundance – so, this is refreshing. Chico Mann invited our lovely gal Alecia Chakour to lend her vocals for the warm and cozy new tune, “Light of Love.” Got us dreaming of candlelight, fireplaces, and hot chocolate on this Thursday afternoon.

Also, for those unfamiliar with Alecia, please get to knowing and be sure to check her out on December 20 for a very special show. The night is going to be killer. Alecia shared with us:

“What makes this night even cooler is that the bands feature allstars from The Royal Family (Soulive, Lettuce), Daptone Records (Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley, Antibalas), David Byrne’s band and TV On the Radio. Basically, 20 of my favorite musicians in one tiny room.”

New Release: Sir Froderick – ‘The Brief Wondrous’

 

Been a while since we’ve posted on Sir Froderick and his otherworldly soothing tunes. His latest project is called The Brief Wondrous and carries a somewhat melancholic dream state cinematic feel similar to his previous works. The Brief Wondrous is also inspired by a story:

“this soundtrack is a story about a nomad
that got a lil money…
been playing the backseat all his life…
traveling with just a guitar and a pack of smokes
taking heavy inhales of lah on stressful times
thinking about his past…but looking forward to the future
he is on the road to return to greatness with new friends and family
slowly claiming his space and gaining his swagger back
only to end in tragedy??????”

We can certainly appreciate a good story. Especially one we can zone out to and forget everything else.
