Executive Producer, Music Department & Today's Top Tune
FROM Ariana Morgenstern
Thievery Corporation: Let the Chalice Blaze Since their debut two decades ago, Thievery Corporation has shown a deep love and respect for Jamaican music. So when it came to recording a new album, DC's dynamic electronic duo set up shop in Kingston.
Hazel English: Make It Better An artist we've been keen on in 2016 is the inimitable Hazel English. The 25-year-old Oakland-based artist's DIY style captured over a million Soundcloud plays before being signed to the prestigious Atlantic record label.
Nahko and Medicine for the People: Directions (feat. Joseph) Similar to predecessors Ben Harper and Michael Franti, Portland artists Nahko and the Medicine People use their songs as catalysts for positive social and environmental messages.
Elbow: Magnificent (She Says) Since their debut album 15 years ago, Elbow has let its songs take their natural course. With music that never feels rushed or bogged down with overblown choruses, the lyrical tales wash over us carried on mellifluous melodies.
