Next week, it will be 11 years since the passing of icon Elliott Smith, but his spirit continues on in new song “Old Hope” from 22-year-old LA singer-songwriter Angelo De Augustine. You might recall we posted about him and his great previous song “How Past Begins” earlier this month. While the Eliott Smith touchstones were evident on that track, this one is dead on from the guitar work all the way down to the slight strain in the vocals. It is absolutely fantastic and we couldn’t imagine a more perfect time than autumn for a song like this. His debut LP, Spirals of Silence, is out on November 18th. Stream it below.

Bristol producer Julio Bashmore just dropped a big disco-infused cut titled “Rhythm of Auld”. The song is just one of those tracks that you feel compelled to strut to, whether it is down the street or on the dancefloor. It follows last month’s “Simple Love” and, just like that track, features vocalist J’Danna. Expect it to appear on Bashmore’s debut LP expected in February of next year via his Broadwalk Records.

After peaking everyone’s interest with “Funn” and “Pulse”, London’s Cash+David have come out from their shroud of mystery to reveal their identities as Tim Ross (Cash) and Liz Lawrence (David). They met while Ross was producing Lawrence’s debut for EMI. Before coming together again, Ross worked with likes of The Bloody Beatroots and Lawrence in Bombay Bicycle Club’s live band. Their latest effort is a departure from the previously mentioned tracks subdued and exposed lyrically and in production. It is another step in unlocking the multifaceted talent they possess.

Song : Ekkah : “Last Chance To Dance”

We can’t help but get nostalgic when we listen to London/Birmingham, UK duo Ekkah’s previously released “Figure It Out” and their new song “Last Chance To Dance”. Both tap into the ’90s R&B of our youth and, while not all out dance jams, are smooth killers that you can sway your body to while chilling with your friends. According to the pair, “Last Chance To Dance” is about a club in Birmingham they used to frequent and the “realization that it’s coming to end of the night and nothing or no one is going to stand in the way of our last chance to dance.” It will appear on their debut EP of the same name slated to drop on November 24th via Year One Records. Stream below.
