Releases of the Week
Curated by iMusician
Sam Judd, 21-year-old artist, activist and self-proclaimed work in progress, started Newmaj in 2019 on the back of a year traveling the world. His music, produced out of a cabin in the woods and inspired by late 20th-century protest songs, straddles a space between commercial pop and sincere indie-folk, often dipping into UK dance music for good measure.
Swedish guitarist and producer Ola Englund is a multi-faceted creator, member of the bands The Haunted, and Feared, and gear guru with his YouTube channel, where he shares production tutorials, gear breakdowns, and music industry insight to a community of 600k+ subscribers.
Dancer, choreographer, actor, songwriter, and musician, Golan Yosef is a multi-faceted creator and artist who weaves positivity, freedom, and often a touch of nostalgia into his singular folk-pop sound. His new EP 'Free' (out April 23) features 5 songs in English, French, and Hebrew, and draws influence from pop music from the ’60s to today, Hip Hop, R&B, as well as Spanish, French and African music he discovered while living abroad.
Born in Spain but based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Cece June is an independent singer-songwriter who strives to create songs for feelings one has yet to discover. Her new EP 'Pieces', created in the nostalgia of moving across the world, blends deep, sincere lyrics and modern pop production to create a unique sound that caught our ear this month.
Kiara Jones has made a name for herself with only a few songs, and in a short time become a key figure in the new French music scene. She invites us to start 2021 in an urban electro-pop universe with the release of her anticipated new single 'Never'.
What Josephine Saw
After 9 years of band history and four studio albums, "A Matter Of Time" is What Josephine Saw's last album. After the first three albums were studio productions, "A Matter Of Time" is a home production. With the album, they wanted to celebrate the farewell and the wonderful band history properly. So the new and last release doesn't feel like a funeral, but rather like a big closing party!

The Flee Project - Raising Awareness of Benga Music
How did three Europeans manage to bypass cultural appropriation by reissuing Benga classics? Benga is a kind of Kenyan folk music that had fallen into oblivion. A vinyl edition, loaded with reinterpretations of Benga music and rare masterpieces, a richly documented magazine ... Flee contains everything collectible, sealed rather like a geopolitical magazine for diplomats, rather than a trophy magazine cut from a world map of the unusual and esoteric. Olivier Duport, one of Flee's three creators, attempts to clarify its intentions and finer points for us during an interview.
