Released in 2012, the reissued ERIMAJ’s Conflict of a Man album sounds as fresh as when it came out. The group’s eponymous lead single brought attention to its futurisitic, soulful vibe. Nextbop even called the group ‘next generation of jazz.’

Low Leaf – Psychlez

0008174973_10

Low Leaf is a singer and songwriter from Los Angeles. ‘Psychlez’ is her second single to drop from the self-released album Palm Psalms: A Light to Resolve All Darkness due out November 11.

The track launches with a soft piano and a mellow flute, before the singer’s soulful vocals make way to a drum beat. The overall experimental vibe of the album seems to match up with the artist’s earthy sensibilities. Her mastery of the electric harp is also fun to watch.

Calling themselves “ambassadors for the obscure,” The Comet Is Coming was recently nominated for a Mercury prize for their funky electro-jazz album Channel The Spirits. In an interview with Bandcamp, the band said they recorded the album in a three-day sprint. Channeling the planet’s impending doom, keyboardist Dan Leavers (Danalogue the Conqueror) said:

“If it was the last day on earth, and a comet was literally coming, how are you going to play? How are you going to party? I feel like the name conjures up that [sense of] apocalypse. Once you understand that you are not going to live forever, does that change what you’re going to do? It’s been an interesting name to get our heads around.”

But The Comet Is Coming is not all doom and gloom. The track “Space Carnival” sounds like it could be the celebratory arrival song for the first manned mission to Mars.
