With so much good music coming through thick and fast, it’s easy for new music to drop online and go unnoticed. To help prevent this, we’ve picked five records you don’t want to sleep on. Stream music from Mary Lattimore, Suzi Analogue, Milly Mango & Jeremiah Jae, Quelle Chris and Osei Korankye. If you like what you hear, support the artist.
Mary Lattimore – At The Dan
Throughout her collections of improvisations, Mary Lattimore translates memory into music using her 47-string Lyon & Healy harp. Lattimore’s eye for detail is quite spectacular on this 5-tack EP. Press play and enjoy.
Suzi Analogue – ZONEZ V . 1
“ZONEZ is scored to real life. It’s less a tape. More a movie. Listen straight through to get it. The concept for ZONEZ is creating music using sounds that trigger not only auditory but visual senses. The sound is created by a woman, and each track has builds that essentially asks for the listeners to be a part of the build. It’s actually an audio moodboard that’s the start of a bigger experience.” Suzi Analogue
Milly Mango & Jeremiah Jae – Rango
“This project is about the highs and lows, the habits of life, motivation, freedom, and having fun.” Milly Mango
Quelle Chris -Lullabies for the Broken Brain
Lullabies For The Broken Brain is an odd instrumental project from Detroit producer Quelle Chris (Danny Brown. Sean P, Jean Grae, Stacey Adams). While most have come to know Quelle’s production for its oinky doink, ear gagging, smooth jazz, Lullabies reveals another aspect of his wizardry. A must listen.
Osie Korankye – Seperewa of Ghana: 3mmer3 Nhyina Ns3
Osei Korankye is the captivating flag bearer of Ghana’s seperewa tradition. The seperewa is the harp of the Ashanti and Akan people of Ghana. The instrument descended from the Sahelian north, prospered for centuries among various Akan groups, then almost disappeared as guitar playing spread from the coast.
