Slow Hollows/Ben Tan

LA-based band Slow Hollows shares a new single from their forthcoming new album. “Heart” is produced by Tyler, The Creator, a frequent collaborator of frontman Austin Anderson, and follows “Two Seasons” as the latest offering from the band’s third full-length Actors, due October 23 via self-run label Not Another Word with an exclusive license to AWAL. The new track finds the band combining with Tyler for a sprawling pop song that continues to surprise as it unfolds, with new instrumentation and flourishes of sound at every corner.

Actors finds Slow Hollows returning to what they know best: making music unconcerned by genre restraints, embracing the unknown and taking similar risks to the ones that got them here. The album is an expansive exploration of sound and genre, shunning the fears and insecurities often felt by creatives and resulting in an unbound and intricate body of work. Working alongside a cast of prolific collaborators including Tyler, The Creator, L.A. singer Ryan Beatty, Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor, Bjorn Yttling and Santigold engineer Will Van Boldrik, the band created a full-bodied auditory experience brimming with sonic detours that fuse together to form the album’s narrative. 

In addition to their headlining shows in LA and Brooklyn this Fall, Slow Hollows will be joining The Neighbourhood for several dates on their North American tour. The band will play 13 shows on this run, before concluding in St. Louis on November 15.

Rema drops Afrobeat track dedicated to women around the globe



Rema by Niyi Okeowo

For the third week in a row, Rema is set to release “anotha banga.” Dropping on Mavin Records/Jonzing World, “Woman” is a song that expresses his appreciation and admiration for all females. 

Recently crowned Apple Music’s Up Next artist – previously awarded to Billie Eilish, Khalid & H.E.R – Afropop’s prince Rema has now released a trio of singles throughout June and July. He kicked things off with “Ginger Me,” a song created in a late-night studio session in London with UK producer The Elements. Quickly followed by trap-influenced track “Alien” which took us on a trippy journey through the mind of a young heartbreaker. 

Crediting his parents for introducing him to Fela Kuti & 2Face, Rema draws influences far beyond West Africa with Bollywood, Trap, Afrobeats, and Pop all becoming part of his trademark sound. With co-signs from the likes of Drake, Barack Obama and now Rihanna, Rema is on his way for a global takeover.

Stream “Woman” via Spotify below.

La Doña releases debut EP ‘Algo Nuevo’



La Doña by Thalia Gochez

Latina artist La Doña has officially released her debut Algo Nuevo EP via Human Re-Sources. Produced heavily by Doña herself, the EP includes previously-released singles “Quién Me La Paga” (“Whose Going To Pay For It?” in English), an infectious cumbia-led track that denounces life’s ever-increasing expenses, and the self-coined “femmeton” anthem “Le Lo Lai,” which reverts the machismo paradigm so prevalent in reggaeton and hip-hop.

Speaking on the EP, La Doña says: “Algo nuevo is a gift of something new; it is a statement about the versatility of musical forms and diasporic rhythms; it is a marriage of the traditional with the contemporary; it is an offering and a statement to la raza, the boss girls, las malas, the non-binary and queer homies, ‘I see you, I am you, and I made this for you.'” 

The EP is a fruitful and masterful collage of La Doña’s world. The artist composes songs influenced heavily by Bay Area hyphy styles, lowrider culture, Mission muralismo, and musica de la (U.S./Mexico) frontera, while exploring radical brown femininity alongside love and pain.

Algo Nuevo also arrives alongside La Doña’s release show at The Chapel in San Francisco tonight where she’ll be joined by Sazon Libre, Chulita Vinyl Club, and Mariachi Juvenil La Misión.

After touring North America in support of Cuco, opening for legendary Mexican rock group Café Tacvba, and being named one of YouTube Music’s Foundry artists with past alumni including Rosalía, Dua Lipa, Chloe X Halle, and Gunna, La Doña is entering 2020 in full force.

Roddy Ricch has officially dropped the highly anticipated music video for “The Box” on Friday.
