Check It Out #21 (08/06/16)

1. Baby - Anna of the North
Oslo based duo Anna and the North have released their latest single 'Baby' and an accompanying music video. This track follows up previous singles 'The Dreamer' and 'Sway', which were streamed 21 millions times, all of which are brilliant, wistful, synth-driven songs. If you're looking for a song to add to your summer playlists, this is it!

2. Crack Your Skull - Dennis Kalla ft. The Strongest Man Who Ever Lived
Dennis Kalla's first single 'On My Skin' literally came out of nowhere, his second release 'Change Your Mind' charted on Swedish college radios. This led to months of intensive touring and yet another release; quickly gaining him a reputation as a charismatic and impulsive performer, however it took it's toll on Dennis. A trip to the US after falling into a depression and suffering from social phobia, he's now back on his feet and is ready to move on and release his EP 'The Ones That Matter' (which is out now). 

3. Cormorant - Dana Falconberry
This is a beautiful, warm-hearted and engaging track, 'Cormorant' is taken from Dana Falconberry and Medicine Bow's new album 'From The Forest Came The Fire'. Songs from her previous album garnered praise from The New York Times, NPR, and SPIN, helping secure appearances at Austin City Limits Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest and opening gigs for Califone and Daniel Johnston, amongst others...

4. Villain - Kyle Britton
Indie-folk singer/songwriter, Kyle Britton, creates emotionally evocative music and epitomises storytelling in its truest fashion. This track 'Villain', follows up his first single 'Riddle', both taken from his debut EP and set for release on July 8th (2016)... 

5. Stories & Rhymes - Jasmine Power
Jasmine Power is a young jazz singer and composer from the Welsh coast with her own tales to tell. 'Stories & Rhymes' is the title track taken from her eclectically pleasing debut EP, showing Jasmine to be a singer/songwriter determined to do it her own way, drawing on her love for classic pop, film soundtracks and even net-soul influences to create something fresh, exciting and very much her own!
