MBE Aug. 23: A lovers’ rock ‘Prism,’ French gems, the return of Anna Wise

Hosted by and

This year alone, nascent soul-funk trio Say She She have dropped four singles that have shimmied into heavy rotation across DJ playlists at KCRW, but none of them are slated for their forthcoming debut album. That changes today with the release of “Prism,” their new single glistening with early ‘80s post-disco sounds and a particular nod to reggae’s romantic sub-genre lovers’ rock. It’s all rounded out with the trio’s signature lush harmonies, and has us eagerly awaiting the album’s Oct. 7 release date. 

Then, come find yourself in a state of happy hypnosis with the psychedelic pop sounds of “Unfold,” the title track to a forthcoming unreleased album from French musician Melody Prochet, a.k.a. Melody’s Echo Chamber. Due out on the album Sept. 30, this is one of seven rare tracks that were recorded and co-produced with Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker in Perth, Australia and finished in the South of France. 

Plus, we delight in the new work from Anna Wise, whose voice you may recognize from the group Sonnymoon or the 11 Kendrick Lamar songs she’s featured on, including “To Pimp A Butterfly,” for which she won a Grammy. “Time” and “The Now” have an air of sweet mystery, much like Wise herself.
