Artist of the Month –  February 2016

It is an old axiom that if the song is right it will reach it’s audience. This month’s artist of the month was chosen by a song. 25 years ago Tori Amos shocked the world with the song “Me and a Gun” on her album Little Earthquakes. The song was description of her own rape years before. Steph Sweet releases a new song in January called “Rape.” The song is visceral and melodic but has the same power that “Me and a Gun” did years before. We include both the link to her site and the song.

Hiatus Kaiyote

Their North American tour sold out quickly. We were lucky to catch them and were amazed when we did. This 4 piece Australian band is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. We describe them as acid jazz but neo soul and other descriptions abound. Nai Palm’s vocal styling is unique. Their second album is Choose Your Weapon. http://hiatuskaiyote.com
