KIMBRA – “SAVE ME”

KIMBRA ANNOUNCES UPCOMING ALBUM ‘A RECKONING’ 

RELEASES NEW SINGLE & VIDEO “SAVE ME”

Today, two-time Grammy-award winning artist Kimbra announces her upcoming studio album A Reckoning. To coincide with the announcement, she has debuted new single “Save Me” alongside a music video directed by Yvan Fabing.

LISTEN & WATCH “Save Me” HERE

Set for release in 2023, A Reckoning is primed to be a reflective record capturing the macro reckonings that impact our world around environment, race, feminism health and patriarchy through the eyes of the archteypal Mother. But at the heart of her record is the war with the micro reckonings that Kimbra faces internally. It’s the most sonically autonomous and confessionally raw she has ever been, finding influence in everything from modern movie soundtracks to electronic and industrial worlds. The album was first imagined in 2018, during Kimbra’s tour with co-producer Ryan Lott of the band Son Lux, who recently scored A24’s Everything Everywhere All At Once.

On “Save Me,” Kimbra shares a moment of deep yearning set on a bed of unsettling warped pianos. She explores how two internal realities can be present at once : chaos and contemplation, rage and still life-force. Inspired by a singular moment, she searches her insecurities with hopes that someone will save her from herself.

The track is brought to new light in the music video that shows the pop singer in Iceland, traversing dangerous, surreal terrains as she seeks to heal her relationship to self, to other women, and finally to our Mother Earth.

More to come from Kimbra.

About Kimbra:

New Zealand-born pop star and two-time Grammy Award winning tour de force Kimbra is readying her fourth studio album, A Reckoning, produced in tandem with Son Lux’s Ryan Lott.

This is just the latest chapter in a series of Kimbra’s overall career success: the experimental pop performer’s 2011 debut, Vows, bowed at No. 14 on the Billboard Top 200 and was certified platinum in Australia and New Zealand. She received Best Female Artist two years in a row at the ARIA Music Awards and took home 5 New Zealand Tui Awards including Album of The Year in 2012. That same year, she exploded into the public consciousness with “Somebody That I Used To Know,” a duet with Gotye that earned her two Grammy Awards for “Record of the Year” and “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance,” as well as reaching No. 1 on global charts (across 18 countries) and selling more than 13 million copies.

Her 2014 sophomore record, The Golden Echo, highlighted her eclectic style with a diverse set of collaborations from Thundercat, Omar-Rodriguez Lopez of The Mars Volta, Bilal, and John Legend. Likewise, her third LP, 2018’s Primal Heart, saw her touring with the likes of Beck, Odesza and David Byrne. Kimbra has performed on TV shows such as Saturday Night Live, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Last Call with Carson Daly, Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Seth Meyers, as well as performing at festivals such as Coachella, Austin City Limits and more.

Moving forward, Kimbra hopes listeners will find catharsis and connection on A Reckoning, whether they are contending with change in their own lives or processing shifts in the world around them.

DOMi & JD BECK Album "Not Tight" Cover Art via U Music Group for use by 360 MAGAZINE

DOMi & JD BECK – NOT TiGHT

DOMi & JD BECK have released their highly anticipated debut album NOT TiGHT, which is out now on Anderson .Paak‘s new label APESHIT in partnership with Blue Note Records. The duo keyboardist DOMi Louna and drummer JD Beck are joined on the album by a line-up of special guests which includes .PaakSnoop DoggBusta RhymesHerbie HancockThundercatMac DeMarco, and Kurt RosenwinkelNOT TiGHT is available now digitally and on CD, with a vinyl release to follow on November 11.

Following their sold-out shows at the Blue Note Jazz Festival in NYC last month, DOMi & JD BECK will be performing at the Napa Valley festival this weekend. Last week the band made their TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with an incredible performance of TAKE A CHANCE featuring .Paak. Watch them perform WHATUP live at VEVO, and don’t miss the unforgettable official videos for TAKE CHANCE and SMiLE.

See what the critics have been saying about DOMi & JD BECK:

bold, bizarre, and intriguing just as every great new band ought to be. NME

Ambitious and accessible, fearless and endearingly freaky. The Guardian

a duo of virtuosic post-jazz Zoomers who seem to have leaped out of a cartoon, and whose wow factor is suited to the small screen… Redolent of lounge, 70’s fusion, trip-hop, and breakbeat, this LP offers [a] nonstop dopamine drip…New York Times

Since they first started breaking the internet with their hyperarticulate strain of beat music, DOMi and JD BECK have gradually burrowed their way into the jazz mainstream. Or maybe it’s that the mainstream has sidled up to them? However you want to put it, there’s no doubt that DOMi, the ponytailed keyboard savant born Domitille Degalle and Beck, the mop-headed drum virtuoso are now turning heads beyond the funhouse perimeter of viral stardom. NPR Music

The future is here. DOMi & JD BECK are two jazz prodigies signed to Anderson .Paak‘s Apeshit label, who are starting to build some serious buzz… they infuse child-like fun into complete and utter mastery of their instruments and itߣs them who will surely continue to spread the gospel of real next-level jazz music to future generations.

Before now, if you wanted to learn about DOMi & JD BECK the internet’s most hyped jazz duo you had to visit their website, click a rat playing saxophone, and read a story about a 12-year-old physicist (DOMi Louna) and a 6-year-old sheep investigator (JD Beck). Let’s fix that. My philosophy of life is don’t take shit too seriously, says DOMi Louna, born Domitille Degalle. And that’s fair. But the vibrant world she and her collaborator have given us demands exploration.

They would reveal a bit more on their Instagram profiles, via clips of their jams, with JD on a simple drum kit and DOMi Louna on MIDI keys. She favors sounds that evoke ’70s jazz fusion and the colorful blips of 2000s Pokemon soundtracks, while he tunes and plays his snare in ways that can sound electronic, channeling IDM and boom bap. Sometimes they’re stuffed into a bathroom and sometimes the drums are muffled by pretzels stacked on the hi-hat, or toilet paper tossed on the snare. Their music finds both humor and greatness in harmonic complexity and rhythmic shiftiness, abruptly adopting and ditching tempos, toying with time signatures, and sneaking extra beats into bridges.

The collaboration began under silly circumstances. DOMi Louna was a teen proteg at Berklee by way of the Paris Conservatory; JD, four years her junior, had gigged since grade school around his hometown, Dallas first in producer Jah-Born’s band where he duetted with MPC beatmakers and DJs spinning Dilla. In 2018, they were both invited to join an ensemble performing at the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) trade show and played in a room full of blaring instrumental demos, surrounded by a chaotic din. It was so bad, we couldn’t hear anything, JD laughs. They bonded over gauche keyboard effects and mom jokes, and a more audible jam that night sparked interest in working more.

Along the ride, DOMi & JD BECK have sat in with Herbie Hancock and backed Thundercat, Ariana Grande, Mac DeMarco, Eric Andre, and more. They also co-wrote Skate on .Paak’s GRAMMY-winning album with Bruno Mars as Silk Sonic. Neither can believe what’s happening, but leave it to them to skewer the moment. When JD suggests people might hate the new album, DOMi Louna says, That would be sick! Booo. They suck!

Getty Free Concert Series

Returning for the first time since 2019, the Getty’s free concert series Off the 405 is back with an impressive lineup, kicking off May 21 and running through August 27. Featured artists include Zsela, Bartees Strange, Los Retros, Hand Habits, and Standing on the Corner. 

Concerts take place from 6 to 9 PM and attendees are welcome to arrive early, explore the Getty Center‘s current exhibitions, bring a picnic, or purchase food and beverages onsite before the show begins. 

Since 2009, Off the 405 has brought some of today’s most exciting music artists to the Getty Center for memorable experiences amid stunning architecture and breathtaking sunset views. Past performers include Moses Sumney, Allah-Las, Cate Le Bon, L’Rain, Chicano Batman and Thundercat among others.

The Getty Center is also reinstating Saturday evening hours on June 18, in time for the second “Off the 405” concert, featuring Bartees Strange. For the first time since 2020, the Center will stay open on Saturdays until 8 PM, and the restaurant will take dinner reservations. It’s also a great opportunity to take advantage of “Pay Once, Park Twice” where visitors can hop from one Getty location to another in one day, using the same parking ticket. 

Off the 405 Lineup

Saturday, May 21 — Zsela: Pronounced ZHAY-lah, singer-songwriter Zsela first turned heads with the vast range of her deep, mesmerizing voice in the molten and moody single “Noise,” released in 2019. Known for taking her absolute time with careful songwriting and recording, Zsela worked with renowned producer Daniel Aged (Frank Ocean, Kelela) to craft her debut EP, Ache of Victory, featuring idiosyncratic pop that blends intimate virtuosity with an aesthetic edge leading to her first tour supporting Cat Power and a string of unique performances at MoMA PS1, the Whitney Museum, Black Rabbit Rose magic bar, Joe’s Pub and more. Accompanied by DJ Slauson Malone 1, Zsela’s captivating voice marks the return of live outdoor music to the sunset-lit atmosphere of Getty’s courtyard stage.

Saturday, June 18 — Bartees Strange: Next up in the series is Bartees Strange, an English-born and D.C.-based producer and songwriter whose music is described as akin to Bloc Party featuring a lively mix of indie rock, hip hop, and jazz. Named an Artist to Watch by Stereogum in 2020, Strange will perform with a full rock band that will energize crowds with songs from forthcoming album: Farm To Table.

Saturday, July 9 — Los Retros: Los Retros, aka Mauri Tapia, grew up in Oxnard, CA, and has been making music since his early teens, playing every instrument on his recordings. Tracing his musical inspirations to both American and Latin American left-field pop and soft-rock groups from the ‘70s and ‘80s, Los Retros is an homage to Chilean pop band Los Ángeles Negros. Los Retros will perform songs from his latest album, “Looking Back.”

Saturday, July 23 — Hand Habits: LA-based indie-folk band Hand Habits will take the stage with energizing new-wave beats and harmonic vocals by solo member musician and guitarist Meg Duffy (they/them). Duffy, who recently toured with Perfume Genius, will perform songs from their three studio albums, Fun House, placeholder and Wildly Idle (Humble Before the Void).

Saturday, August 27 — Standing on the Corner: The New York collective Standing on the Corner (SOTC) often calls itself an “art ensemble,” a nickname that helps outline its approach to music and performance, while hinting at its creative roots and perspective. With composer, conductor and co-founder Gio Escobar at the center of a band line-up, SOTC moves freely yet decisively between jazz improvisations, dub excursions, garage-noise freak-outs, and lo-fi hip-hop collage. 

This special iteration of the Off the 405 concert series also celebrates the dynamic creative exchange of the Harlem-based photographers chronicled in the exhibition Working Together: The Photographers of the Kamoinge Workshop, on view at the Getty Center from July 19 through October 9, 2022. The photographers fused the energy of jazz and improvisation into their stylistically untethered approach to representing the African American experience.

Pictures’ film Judas and the Black Messiah.

Leven Kali Releases “I Get High When I Think About Us” Three-Song Pack

L.A.-based singer/songwriter/producer Leven Kali has released three new songs, “Mine,” “Thursday,” and “Too High” featuring fellow West Coast artists Buddy and Na’Kel. The tracks, written and co-produced by Leven himself, showcase his ability to display modern romance as a colorful, funk-inspired, and dreamy entity. Leven is due to release his debut full length project in the spring of 2019 on Palm Studios/ Interscope Records. A lyric video for “Thursday” is also out today, directed by Palm Studios.

The new tracks come as a follow up to Leven’s October double-single pack, NunWrong With a Lil’ Good Lovin’, which Billboard said “encompass lush, mellow R&B vibes that resemble Anderson Paak’s surreal sounds and the pop elements of Bruno Mars.” This fall, Leven joined Snoh Aalegra on the west coast leg of her tour.

Leven dropped his acclaimed single “Do U Wrong” ft. Syd back in January. Produced by Zack Sekoff (Vince Staples, Thundercat), the track features a writing contribution from Swedish singer/songwriter Snoh Aalegra. In its glowing review of “Do U Wrong,” Pitchfork stated that Leven “is out to write the next episode of California hip-hop: buttery neo-soul vocalism growling electric guitar, and G-funk thumo.” Leven is scheduled to release his full-length project in 2019.

Leven – “Me, Sekoff and Syd had a lot of fun making this…. its a long story but this song died, came back to life, and learned how to swim. thank you for listening”

Leven Kali was born in the Netherlands and grew up in Santa Monica. He is one of the three featured artists on Playboi Carti’s widely celebrated 2017 mixtape, alongside Lil Uzi Vert and A$AP Rocky, and is also credited for a contribution to Drake’s More Life.

STAR-STUDDED FEATURES ON ALBUM INCLUDE KEHLANI, YG, KYLE, G-EAZY, AND OTHERS

 
CO-HEADLINING U.S. TOUR:

BEBE & BASSY TOUR 2017 KICKS OFF OCTOBER 16

                                                                                                     

Bay Area singer-songwriter Marc E. Bassy has released his debut album, Gossip Columns, via Republic Records today. Listen HERE. The album features star-studded assists from Kehlani, KYLE, YG, Bobby Brackins, Hailee Steinfeld, Thundercat and G-EAZY (including their platinum-certified song “You and Me”). Earlier this summer Bassy launched the first single and remix from his new body of work with “Plot Twist” f/ KYLE and “Plot Twist (Remix f/ Hailee Steinfeld),” which have garnered a combined 16M+ Spotify streams. “So Simple” f/ G-EAZY has already racked up over 1M+ Spotify streams in merely a couple weeks.

While Bassy has been a much buzzed-about singer/songwriter since the release of 2016’s Groovy People EP, Gossip Columns further showcases Bassy’s recognizable crooning, amplifies his song-crafting capabilities and takes the listener on a themed-journey into his personal world. “I chose this album title because these tracks are essentially sensationalized stories from my personal life, experience and observation,” says Bassy. “I have always dug into these stories as sources for inspiration, and being based in the muck and mire of Los Angeles, a tabloid-ish picture is what I have painted within this album.” Catch Bassy reveal more about the songs on Gossip Coumns and air some of the new tracks this weekend on Beats 1’s Noisey Radio (Saturday at 9amEST/6amPST & Sunday 9pmEST/6pmPST).
