Wheatus have just about finished their mammoth UK tour, which they started in early October. We last spoke with founder and lead singer, Brendan B Brown, back in 2016, and he’s managed to find some time in his incredibly busy schedule to set aside a few minutes to chat with us. It was a great catch up, and we talked about their current release, their Christmas EP, ‘Just A Dirtbag Christmas’, their upcoming 20th anniversary edition of their ‘Wheatus’ album, the secret to the staying power of Teenage Dirtbag, and about meeting your heroes.
Last week, New York City hip-hop/R&B duo Suave n Thick released their latest single, their awesome new love song, titled ‘Long Distance’. The track is a collaborative effort with one of London’s best up-and-coming producers, Eclectic, who composed the track with a mix of old and new school R&B and hip hop beats, creating a brilliant new mix that’s easy to pick up, listen to and enjoy.
It’s December 2, and behind the second door of the Essential Advent Calendar is South London vocalist, Kelli-Leigh, who steps out from being a backing vocalist to taking her position in the spotlight, with the release of her debut Christmas EP, ‘Unwrap My Heart’. The four track EP was released on November 25 and is the perfect addition to our Advent Calendar.
Out now, ‘Our Subtle Disposition’, is the first EP from rising Australian artist, Joe Jackson. Mixed and mastered by Stay Nice, the release is a poignant exploration of Jackson’s experiences, marked by heartbreak and loss. The eight track EP is reminiscent in style to that of Post Malone, and fellow Australian, the hip hop artist 360.
