HOT HALF DOZEN 11.15.2022

Back from the FIM music convention to sift through 289 songs. Here are my picks.

289 submissions this week

La Estrella, álbum by Chancha Via Cicuit. Argentinian artist Chancha Via Circuito (aka Pedro Canale) releases his fifth full length album of environmental sounds, cumbia, and mystery. With collaborations with Lido Pemiento, Femina, Las Áñez and others, this is rich, diverse, unique music. Available on all major platforms. Spanish.

444 and Ms. Moon, two singles by Ambar Lucid. To very different songs inspired by the early stages of falling in love,  “444”  moves with a beat in Spanish while “Ms.Moon,”  floats along in tranquility and English. On all major platforms.

Everything to Everybody, EP by Rene Rapp. Seven songs that showcase her intimate voice, each as if she is talking directly to you. Emotional, beautifully composed and arranged. You will listen over and over to catch the nuances and drown in the feeling. On most major platforms.

Forever, single/video by Gryffin with Elley Duhé. The official music video for the hit single “Forever” with Elley Duhé urges the listener/viewer to live in the moment and appreciate the moment through nostalgia-provoking vignettes of past joys. This is the second collaboration for the powerhouse duo and it crackles. On all major platforms and YouTube.

 Plot Amor, album by Atticus Dean. Alt classical (if there is not such a thing, Dean just invented it) piano-led songs that are tranquil, beautiful, and of the moment. He mixes environmental sounds with piano, strings, and ethereal effects for a unique take on classical music, bleeding a bit into experimental jazz. Stream on Spotify.

Postcards for Christmas, album by Amanda Abizaid . Time for Christmas carols and this is ax unique. The bilingual singer has produced a unique Christmas album in Arabic. You will smile at “Jingle Bells” in Arabic and English, as we as “We Three Kings” and other classics. Something fun and different for Christmas. Stream Spotify.
