Top 6 picks from 105 songs and albums sent to me this week

105 submissions this week

Remember Your North Star, single by Yaya Bey. Single from the fourth album from the supple-voiced R&B singer.  Thoughtful, complex, sophisticated rap flowing through an equally sophisticated sonic environment. Take this song as an introduction to Yay Bey’s ethereal world of beautiful, intelligent music. Stream/download on Spotify, Soundcloud, Apple Music, Amazon, YouTube.

Espejo, single by Eljuri. Another grand slam from the queen of guitar.  First song released from her upcoming album Reflexion. Funk at its best with hooks a plenty and stratospheric guitar riffs that only she can do. Stream/download on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music and YouTube.  Spanish lyrics.

Normal Kid, single by Jillette Johnson. Gentle, understated, razor-sharp. Johnson moves this along in your ears and your mind with her smooth, perfectly modulated voice while she throws in a few lyric and musical surprises. Addictive. On most major platforms.

Leap of Faith, single by Three Pairs of Boots. Downhome and majestic at the same time, there is nothing like what this married couple can do with music. Laura Arias puts so much beautiful urgency into her lyrics, perfectly supported and carried by husband Andrew Stern’s guitar and the band. Unforgettable. The full album, Mighty Love, due in September, but for now, stream the song on Spotify.

Chevrolet, single by Sass Jordan. https://stonyplainrecords.com/sass-jordan/. She rocks!  Down and dirty blues that moves  like a stream engine at full tilt. You can’t sit down and listen Chevrolet – or any of Sass Jordan’s songs. Sneaks up on you and then grabs your  gut and swings you around. On most major platforms and YouTube.

More Black Super Heroes, single by Westside Boogie. One of the most powerful raps out there, and one of the most inspiring. Watching the video will make you cry and hope. The language is rough, but the message is heart.  Stream/download on most major platforms.

BONUS:  Up and Away, single  from Σtella’s debut album of the same name .
