Beguiling singer-songwriter Emily Hearn tells us all about her new EP in her own words.

Below are the inspirations from my life that grew into songs. Each one is a piece of my heart, but I also believe that from time to time you might have felt the same way. So enjoy reading about the roots of these songs, but I would love it even more if they grew to mean something more meaningful in your own life.

London's Bombay Dub Orchestra (a.k.a. Andrew T. Mackay and Garry Hughes) returns with another wonderful album of globetrotting world beats, blended with traditional Indian orchestral sounds.

The title Tales From the Grand Bazaar tells you much of what you need to know about Bombay Dub Orchestra, as the bazaar is where cultures meet and intertwine, with Istanbul’s bazaar being the grandest. The band builds that out further, pulling sounds and textures from places as diverse as India, Turkey, Macedonia and Brazil, while blending them into a mellow electronic vibe that can be quite mesmerizing.

With Azure Blue, former Irene and Laurel Music songwriter Tobias Isaksson creates a melange of '80s synthpop textures and '90s shoegaze vocals mixed with that wall of sound, perfected by pop music back in the '60s.

Yet, this music sounds utterly contemporary. Azure Blue’s debut album, Rule of Thirds, received many critical accolades back in 2011 with the culmination being a win for best pop album in the Swedish version of the Grammys last year. Now Isaksson returns with his sophomore album under the Azure moniker, the philosophically titled Beyond the Dreams There’s Infinite Doubt. Matinee Records will release the album next week in the US, but it has released today in Sweden, so here’s your official preview of the new music… that is, unless you live in Sweden.
