Musical Wednesday’s – Top Picks For The Week!

Music | March 12, 2014

So unfortunately, we missed our weekly Musical Monday’s feature this week – it ended up being a miserable Monday instead! Not to worry, music is still on our side and we’ve brought you the best sounds we could find for this week’s feature.

Starting with the lovely Rainy Milo. This South London songstress warmed our ears with her smooth soulful voice and with an endless  amount of great songs, we’re not likely to get bored of her anytime soon. With her new album released only last week ‘This Thing Of Ours’  we’ve got our summer playlist lined up!

 

Little Simz has had an amazing past few months, travelling to New York & LA  to work with music producers such as JMSN and THC. Simz has performed in front of J. Cole, Dizzie Rascal and even opened up for American rapper Future! With so much more to look forward to, including performing at the massive music & film conference in Texas, SXSW, it’s no wonder Simz is constantly releasing bangers! This is ‘Barz Simson’ and she goes HARD!

 

With her new album ‘Food’  landing in stores this April, it’s no surprise she’s jetting from country to country promoting her latest music. Kelis is currently in Texas for SXSW before heading to the UK’s capital for a secret gig in a secret location! We’re very excited, and with the release of her latest single, we’re now even more excited! Check it out here:

 

He was recently signed to PMR Records, and following on from his recent work with Tourist and MNEK, Javeon McCarthy (who just goes by Javeon now) teamed up with fellow PMR affiliate Julio Bashmore for a sequence of interconnected videos directed by Ben Strebel. ‘Intoxicated’ is the 3rd video from the series which explores the underside of British society. We’re looking forward to see what Mr. McCarthy has planned for the rest of the year!

 

He’s back! Was it worth the wait? Definitely. ‘Rebel With A Cause’ is currently No.1 on the iTunes Hip Hop chart and why wouldn’t it be? Fans of Justin Clarke aka Ghetts have been waiting for the notorious grime emcee to release something for a while now, and with ‘Rebel’ being the first single off the album – his audience are currently screaming in applause. The album features a number of hit songs including ‘Ghetto No More’ featuring UK female singer/songwriter A.L and ‘Gas Mark 9’ featuring Rap artist Giggs.

Acoustic Afternoon is back again this Sunday with a full line up of talent at Boxpark Shoreditch.

Hosted by London’s local funny man Craig Mitch, who will be introducing 4 individual acts to the stage for 3 hours of musical forte and good vibes. To make it even more special, BassBuds are sponsoring the event and are giving you the opportunity to win a snazzy pair of BassBuds headphones & a portable BassBoomz speaker!
The event itself is FREE so with the sun set to shine this weekend, there’s no excuse not to be there!

Tom Prior, who sold out his headline show just last week, will be bringing his smooth tones to Boxpark on Sunday.
You can expect nothing but goose bumps and shivers when this gentleman starts to sing.
Watch Tom’s Reload Sessions here:


Cardiff lass Rebecca James has been singing since the young age of 13. Even now at the adult age of 18, Rebecca hasn’t stopped learning and discovering more about her sound. Mid last year, Ms. James decided to scrap the EP she was planning on releasing as she knew the sound wasn’t her own. A year later, Rebecca is signed with record label SoundBox and is currently working on the new, more Rebeccaish EP that will be released later in the year. Planning to silence the crowd with her piercing voice, Rebecca will also be taking the stage this Sunday.
Listen to Rebecca here:

 

 Also to take the stage. the contemporary music learner, Louise Smith and fashion fanatic Holly Violet!

Now, if you haven’t seen the original Clueless at least 5 times, we don’t know what you were doing with your childhood.
It’s the ultimate chick flick with every girly thing you could hope for! From electronic wardrobes that pick clothes for you (jealoussss), a timeless white Mercedes Benz, loads of leopard print and the original mean girl antics!

Nearly 20 years later, I know, we can’t believe it either, the long legged and even longer haired blond princess Iggy Azalea has remade the fashion filled film into a music video for her latest release ‘Fancy’ featuring British songstress Charlie XCX.  With almost every outfit identical to the film, the video makes you want to watch the movie all over again. We love it!

4. Daley – Days And Nights
After the release of ‘Songs That Remind Me Of You’, the anticipation for Daley’s album was very exciting. He’s been in a out of the BBC Live Lounge giving artists like Arctic Monkeys and Chris Brown a run for their money covering their songs with ease. Daley has a gift of making every song his own and added extra depth to the music, can’t go wrong with this album!
