    It’s been a LONG time since we’ve shared the music we’ve been listening to, so here are the albums on continuous play in our house…


    Laura Mvula’s re-recording of her first and only album at Abbey Road with the Metropole Orkest, though filled with melancholy, is the joy of my life. You can buy it by clicking.


    Junior Santos selects some obscure Brazilian funk to shake that now-trendy oversized booty to, and it’s about time, on both counts. Purchase it here.


    For some calm after that storm, piano genius Chilly Gonzales has just delivered a piano and quartet album that is not as terrible as I’ve just made it sound, in fact it is quite wonderful. Get it now.


    Probably my favorite debut album from French-Cuban twin sisters ever is that of Ibeyi, who for me blew off the lid of mixing tribal, soul and electro styles into one incredibly melodic package. Grab some of the Magic.


    And last but certainly not least, whom I consider to be our generation nascent Dilla is a 19 year-old English white boy by the name of Tom Misch, whose every stroke of the MPC or guitar strings gives me a soulgasm. Get his BeatTape today!
