WATCH // Ben Abraham Performs “Speak” For A Mahogany Session

Bens honest songwritinghas seen him growfrom a well-kept hometown secret into an independent artist with a passionate international following.” – Tone Deaf
When Ben sings, I listen.” – Gotye
One of my favorite new singer songwriters.” – Sara Bareilles

Australian artist Ben Abraham, whom the Sydney Morning Herald calls “one of the best new male voices,” is featured in a new installment of the acclaimed British Mahogany Sessions series. Abrahams U.S. debut album is set for release early next year on Secretly Canadian.

Abraham brought his live show, which Tone Deaf calls “disarming” and “truly stunning,” to the U.S. for the first time at this years CMJ. Abraham backs up his voice with only guitar and harmonium, in the vein of “Cat Stevens, If Donny Hathaway and Cat had a baby and he hung out with Sufjan Stevens and Feist,” Abraham says.

Abraham is set to return to the U.S. next year for a full tour to celebrate the release of his album. Since he began writing songs while working in a hospital, Abraham has collaborated with Ta-ku, Wafia, Gotye and more and recorded an album. The son of Indonesian folk-pop stars, he has risen to prominence in his hometown of Melbourne and throughout Australia through his much lauded live performances, where his voice and talent has consistently blown audiences away.

LISTEN // ANOHNI Collaborates With Hudson Mohawke And Oneohtrix Point Never For “4 DEGREES”


ANOHNI, the lead singer from Antony and the Johnsons, has collaborated with Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never on “4 DEGREES.” It is a bombastic dance track celebrating global boiling and collapsing biodiversity. Rather than taking refuge in good intentions, ANOHNI gives voice to the attitude sublimated within her behavior as she continues to consume in a fossil fuel-based economy. To support the Paris Climate Conference, ongoing this December, ANOHNI releases “4 DEGREES,” the first single from her upcoming album HOPELESSNESS.

“4 DEGREES” emerged earlier this year in live performances. As discussed by ANOHNI, “I have grown tired of grieving for humanity, and I also thought I was not being entirely honest by pretending that I am not a part of the problem,” she said. ‘4 DEGREES’ is kind of a brutal attempt to hold myself accountable, not just valorize my intentions, but also reflect on the true impact of my behaviors.

ANOHNI’s “4 DEGREES” is available today via Secretly Canadian. ANOHNI, Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtorix Point Never will play select performances in the months to come. More shows will be announced soon, along with more information about this collaboration and ANOHNI’s HOPELESSNESS.

WATCH // Cayucas Share “Big Winter Jacket Video” And Surfer Blood Tour Dates

As the days grow shorter and the nights go longer, Cayucas have shared an ode to what’s left of the golden light. The video for “Big Winter Jacket” features lovely non-moments, the in-between things we might forget but that ultimately make life so sweet. Laying around in our friends’ rooms, running down the street at night, teepeeing passersby. With a dash of jingle bells, this is a band known for its summery tunes welcoming winter into the fold. Early next year Cayucas will tour with Surfer Blood on a run of West Coast dates. Soak up the last bit of twilight with their new video and find a full list of dates below.

Check out this spacey, droned out, dark remix of “3attam Babey” from the Suuns + JIMH collaboration. From the band:

Lucrecia is a talented artist from Colombia living in Berlin. We are happy she’s applied her surreal, minimal, ecclectic approach to our otherwise guitar heavy synth jam, “3attam Babey”.
