Came across this Lolawolf (Zoë Kravitz, James Levy, and Jimmy Giannopoulos) track today and I was immediately hooked by the blend of a slow-burn electric feel, some sultry vocals and lyrics that get graphic to the point they don’t seem to fit. I love that, sort of how all of us show up at work and do as we should – but in hidden places of our minds we might be thinking much bolder thoughts. The pink and purple tones of the video are sexy and feminine and seem to wrap it all together.
Have a listen. The whole EP is up on Spotify here.
Pulled from their upcoming album Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! – out October 8th.
This is Gospel is a little more dark than they typically go, while still managing to stay earnest and a bit playful. I love the blended tones at the intro, and I’m a sucker for anything that addresses “the Fallen”. Have a listen.

I am a new fan of HAIM (pronounced to rhyme with “time”), a lovely lady-rock band hailing from L.A. You can’t beat the harmonious tones you get from singers who are sisters, and they have been aptly described as “nu-folk-meets-nineties-R&B” . This playful cover of Strong Enough does take me back to the early nineties, sitting by the radio waiting for this song to play so I could press that red record button.
HAIM will be appearing at the Life is Beautiful Festival in October.
