    LOTL Radio Welcomes Whitney McClain, Debuts New Album 'Nothing Lose"

    in Music

    Few new artists can boast that their debut single surpassed one million plays on YouTube, so Oregon-bred, singer/songwriter Whitney McClain doesn’t take accomplishing the feat for granted. Not only has her infectious track “Bombs Away” achieved streaming heights, it’s been picked up by iHeartRadio stations and even covered by a fan.“I’m so blessed,” says the 22-year-old singer. “To know that people that I don’t even know are fans of the music that I sing is just surreal. It’s just crazy.”“Bombs Away” has earned the attention on its own merits. Produced and written by Mauli B, the song offers a feel good throwback sound complimented with Whitney’s inviting vocals, sparse piano keys and distinctive, humming synthesizers, a palatable juxtaposition to song’s message of heartache. Whitney sings, “All ya gonna do is hurt me / I stick around like I deserve it / But you know that I don’t / Treasure me like Bruno.”Ironically, “Bombs Away” was the first song Whitney recorded after teaming up with producer and songwriter Mauli B two years ago. “Mauli just wrote it there on the spot in the studio,” Whitney recalls. “It’s great. I’m definitely an old soul. I love the old Motown vibe of the song, talking about self worth. It totally speaks to my life.” The video, directed by Luc “LR” Richard, also adopts a retro look and feel with Whitney’s clothing and hairstyles.“Bombs Away” is the first release from Whitney’s debut EP, Nothing to Lose, executive produced by her uncle and manager, Marlon McClain, former leader and guitarist of the ‘70s funk, rock, R&B, jazz band Pleasure. The title of the forthcoming Gold Dust LLC release is a testament to her decision to fully commit to her music.

    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…
