Children of Zeus - "I Can't Wait"

The description for this track on First Word Records' Bandcamp page is "Hashtag baby making music... This is grown folk shit. Classic slow jam material."

It don't get more apt than that.

(Gyedu) Blay Ambolley - "Simigwa-Do"

This is Ghanian artist Gyedu Blay Ambolley's THIRTIETH (30 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) album [< that's one exclamation mark for each release].

"Simigwa-Do" is the first cut that's been made available from Ketan and it's a terrific slice of highlife brought to you by RR fave, Agogo Records.

Pre-order the double LP now and set your iCal for May 12 when the rest of the goodness drops.

Tennis - "My Emotions Are Blinding"

Oh man. So much good music lately. I'm buried under an avalanche of submissions both digital and physical of late and have been busy digging out.

One of the pure pleasures among the bunch is Yours Conditionally, the new LP from Tennis. Alaina Moore's vocals are so breezy and the song "My Emotions Are Blinding" has such an 70's AM vibe it could fit snugly alongside something from Rumours.

Be sure to check out the album version, but enjoy this live take on KCRW.
