First up the lead single by Melissa Laveaux “Pie Bwa” from the albumÂ Memory is a Strange Bell. Â It is a variation on Billie Holiday’s classic “Strange Fruit” sung from the point of view of a blood stained tree. Â The song is sung entirely in Creole. She also does a pretty kick butt version of Weezer’s “Hash Pipe.”
Up next is singer-songwriter Diane Cluck and her new single ‘Sara’ from her upcoming albumÂ Boneset which is due out on March 4th, 2014.
And we end this set with a new one from Nir Felder called “Sketch 2” from his upcoming albumÂ Golden Age due out in January ’14. Â Nir mixes jazz guitar, hip hop beats, and on this track some historic speeches to bring about a unique sound.
