Artist: Beach Slang
Release: Bad Art & Weirdo ideas
Label: Big Scary Monsters
Genre: Alternative

We’ve been waiting for a while and finally it’s here. Over the past two years Beach Slang have proved themselves as a band who can write memorable songs, share that energy live and create a community of like-minded fans but they’ve always been missing one important element: An album. Luckily the band’s full-length The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us is the culmination of their collective career and picks up where their two critically acclaimed 7-inches, 2014’s Cheap Thrills On A Dead End Street and Who Would Ever Want Something So Broken? left off. The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us will be out October 30, 2015.

 

 

Artist: Dayme Arocena
Release: Don’t Unplug My Body
Label: Brownswood Recordings
Genre: Latin Jazz

Daymé Arocena, the rising Cuban Santeria priestess, continues to amass a loving following far and wide from her infectious exuberance apparent in her devotion to music and performance. At just 23 years old, the singer, composer, arranger, choir director and band leader is a skilful, charismatic presence in Cuban music. She sings the chants and song repertoires, but also absorbs music of any kind, particularly jazz and Cuban neo-soul.
