Amai Kuda Y Josephine is a Canadian duo of singer-songwriters and activists who have been working together since meeting in 2013. Their latest music video, “Cave”, presents a song that was written around the time of their initial meeting and has only evolved since then. One of the first songs the two had ever crafted together coming off of their first jam session together, it’s a piece of work that still aptly defines the organic, earthen sound of the duo alongside their message relating to the connection of humankind to nature.

Their latest track, “Prickly Feelings” (from upcoming LP SUPER UNIT), does an excellent job of showcasing their playful aesthetic.

Legendary synthpop duo Erasure returned with their 17th studio album this year and are showing no signs of slowing down as they continue to release compelling music year after year. Really anything synthpop god Vince Clarke does is worthy of notice and Andy Bell’s voice is as gorgeous and emotive as always.

Jeff Beck once said of the Legendary Shack Shakers that they were “a cross between the Yard Birds and the Sex Pistols”, which sounds just about right. Legendary Shack Shakers have always channeled the energy and rawness of punk into their rockabilly and psychobilly drenched music. It’s an irresistible mixture. On their latest album, After You’ve Gone releasing August 25th via Last Chance Records, the band ratchets up the lo-fi elements while exploring the aftermath and pain of marital breakdown and divorce.
