My Favorite Things of the Week

Check out my Upcoming Releases page for more new music!

The soundtrack for Peaky Blinders was released this past Friday and includes new songs from a number of amazing musicians, including Laura Marling, PJ Harvey, and Queens of the Stone Age. It also features a new song from Anna Calvi, "You're Not God." The song doesn't feature her vocals much, aside from audible breaths and growls, but instead focuses on her incredible guitar work.

FKA twigs recently appeared on BBC 1 to perform songs from her new album, Magdalene. In addition to "home with you," and "cellophane," she also performed a cover of Gershwin's jazz classic "Summertime." Despite the song's 85 years as a jazz standard, she manages to bring something new with her distinctive breathy vocals.

Every music video released by Rosalía has been amazing, usually featuring colorful costumes and well-choreographed dance sequences. These don't feel like typical pop videos, though. There's something to the camera work and cinematography, and of course her music, that elevates her videos above the fray.

This week, Moses Sumney announced a two-part album, græ.

He released an incredible debut album, Aromanticism, in 2017, followed up by the Black in Deep Red EP last year. Based on the first track from the album, "Virile," he is only building on the loose song structure and jazz-influenced vocals that made his earlier work so amazing. Part one of the album will be released in February, and part two and the physical release coming on May 15.
