    Andy Frasco & The UN - Change of Pace

    Andy Frasco & The UN
    Change of Pace
    Label: Fun Machine Records

    Super fun and party forward, Andy Frasco & The UN have toured through 10 countries, average 250 shows per year and have somehow managed to output 10,000+ hours playing music. Change of Pace adds more soul to their fabulous freaky funk, showing off their natural evolution as a band, while not losing their edge or originality.

    Ayla Nereo - By the Light of the Dark Moon

    By the Light of the Dark Moon
    Label: Jumpsuit Records

    The delicate interplay of vocal melodies and seductive rhythms is what makes this a standout release. Often collaborating and touring with Polish Ambassador, this sixth solo album for singer-songwriter Ayla Nereo finds her on her own, with her sound stronger and more developed than ever. The overlying concept of the album deals with shadow work and the healing reconciliation of self acceptance. As such, this dark moon-light brightens and grows with each listen! Experience her light at Electric Forrest or Shangri La music festival this fall!

    Juntos
    Label: Resueño

    This debut album named Juntos, which is Spanish for together, exemplifies the musical unions that took place on this entrancing world beat release filled with nature sounds, electronics and rhythmic traditions from indigenous cultures. This confluence of influences relates to composer Maywa’s time spent living in the rainforests of South America as well as fellow composer Steffen Ki’s travels around the world, but also encompasses their 8 guests (1 for each track), who include Mose, J. Poole, Intiche, and Biomigrant.

    Cartoons
    Label: Art Paul Schlosser

    Art Paul Schlosser is one of Madison’s most prolific musical street buskers. On this round of tunes, with the help of Frankie Pobar Lay, he focuses on songs about cars. Production values aren’t great and most songs were recorded live, but each CD cover is a one of a kind artwork by Art Paul himself. My song favorites are “Banksy Graffiti My Car”, “I Left My Phone In My Car” and “Let’s Make Taco Trucks Great Again.” For a tip and a smile he’s sure to play your favorite next time you see him.

    Angels
    Label: Merkaba Music

    Cleverly released on 11/11, EMOG’s release capitalizes on the energetic opening this time and date created by taking the listener on an Angelic journey fruited by the electronic lands of psydub and psychill. Embark on these ethereal yet ecstatic soundscapes and plug into lessons from the 5 big Archangles; Gabriel, Jophiel, Auriel, Raphael and Michael. Who’s ready to ascend?
