    LOTL Radio Welcomes Adrian Younge Debuts new Album Something About April II

    in Music

     


    In the four years since the release of Something About April, Adrian Younge has been coined America’s black genius: the evocation of analog vestige in a digital era. His majestic music has garnered him reverence, likened to Ennio Morricone’s best work and the Beatles’ tenacity to create new sounds. Making an indelible impression on modern vinyl heads and producers alike (having been sampled by DJ Premier, Jay-Z, Common, 50 Cent) theSomething About April brand is an axiom to the modern “Breakbeat,” and Linear Labs is happy to announce its successor: Something About April II.


    Recorded with a collection of rare instruments, Something About April II advances Younge’s musical paradigm with enterprising concepts, and grander compositions, synthesizing the boundaries between dark American soul, and classic European cinema. This latest release features an array of entrancing vocalists:Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab) and Bilal,perform duets on “Step Beyond” and “La Ballade,” reminiscent of duets from Serge Gainsborg & Jane Birkin; Raphael Saadiqblends “Black Jazz” vocals with psychedelic soul on “Magic Music,” while Israeli star,Karolina, delivers haunting chants over concertos like “Hear my love” and “Winter is Here.” Long time Adrian Younge collaboratorLoren Oden croons as if the apparent ghost of Donnie Hathaway created one last love song with “Sandrine” and “Sittin’ by the Radio.”


    Younge is the experimental spirit of the modernist vanguard, looking into the past to create the future. What this album extrapolates from vinyl culture, will become further magnified by its sampling down the line.Something About April II will replace the former as a holy grail for producers and collectors alike…

    LOTL Radio Welcomes Terri Lyne Carrington. "The Mosaic Project: LOVE and SOUL"

    in Music

    Terri Lyne Carrington arranged and produced


    Natalie Cole’s last recording titled “Come


    Sunday,” featured on Carrington’s current CD, The Mosaic Project: LOVE and SOUL, released in August 2015. “Come Sunday” is Duke Ellington’s sacred classic, which was originally made popular by Mahalia Jackson.


     Terri initially met Natalie Cole as a teenager


     Terri also performed with Ms. Cole on the


    concert stage. 


     


    The Mosaic Project: LOVE and SOUL presents Carrington leading a rotating cast of superb female instrumentalists and vocalists that includes Oleta Adams, Natalie Cole, Paula Cole, Lalah Hathaway, Chaka Khan, Chanté Moore, Valerie Simpson, Nancy Wilson, Jaguar Wright and Lizz Wright, as well as saxophonist Tia Fuller, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen; bassists Meshell Ndegoecello and Linda Oh; and keyboardists Geri Allen, Patrice Rushen and Rachel Z.


    On The Mosaic Project: LOVE and SOUL, Carrington juxtaposes her salute to female artists by paying homage to various male artists who have either influenced her professionally and/or informed her musicality, such as Nick Ashford, George Duke, Duke Ellington, Frank Sinatra, Luther Vandross and Bill Withers. “Whenever I do something that celebrates women, I never want it to feel like it’s something that excludes men,” she explains. “On this record, I consciously wanted to celebrate the various relationships women have with men either through original songs of mine or cover songs by male composers and song writers.” The male presence and perspective on The Mosaic Project: LOVE and SOUL is even more realized by Billy Dee Williams, who contributes insightful spoken-word interludes through the disc.

    Halley Hiatt is a Singer Songwriter of Lebanese, French, and Native American decent that hails from Upstate NY but now resides in Bushwick, BK. Her sound is a unique hybrid that can best be described as a mix of R&B and Electro Pop.

    “Other Matters” is reflecting on those times we get so wrapped up in work/and or superficial things that we lose sight of what's really important? and what matters in the end." - Halley Hiatt
