Fresh New Music : Aloe Blacc
The name Aloe Blacc might not ring a bell, but you have heard his voice before. He’s the voice you hear singing on Avicii’s “ Wake Me Up”
 A singer songwriter, rapper and musician burst onto the scene in the mid 90’s, and launched a solo career in 2003.
 
By 2012 he was nominated for a BRIT award for Best international Male Soul Artist and Best International Break Through Artist.
If you watch TV sports, you definitely heard THIS song, “The Man”

Fresh New Music : Ellen Foley
Remember the Meatloaf song “ Paradise by the Dashboard Light? Well, the female vocalist was Ellen Foley. Although she did not appear in the video, that’s her voice you hear.
Ellen was also the subject of The Clash’s song “ Should I Stay or Should I Go”, written by her, then boyfriend, Mick Jones.
In addition to being the inspiration for a song, she also has an extensive theater background, appearing in Hair, Tootsie and Fatal Attraction, just to name a few as well as the TV Show Night Court.

And now, 30 years after her last album comes a new one!

Here’s a sample of the first single, “ If You Can’t Be Good”.

Fresh New Music : Sleeper Agent
Sleeper Agent is a band from Kentucky that found their sound when they added female vocalist Alex Kandel to their line-up. It apparently was a good decision, since Esquire Magazine called their  music  “most original introduction to a new band we’re likely to hear all year” and Rolling Stone rated Sleeper Agent number 2 in the Best New Band category in 2012.
 
Here’s a sample of their second album, the very catchy song “ Waves”
