Romans Share “Mystery Girl” Single
Somewhere between the 1950s teen doo-wop tracks that your grandparents swapped saliva to and the Clash’s “Give ‘Em Enough Rope” lies the sound of Romans, the duo made up by Jeremy Fury (of We Are The Fury fame) and Craig Bonich (Head Automatica, Jaguar Love). Stream or download their debut single “Mystery Girl” to get the full effect.
The Very Best Return With “MTMTMK”
The Very Best is made up of Swedish-born producer Johan Hugo and Malawian singer/drummer Esau Mwamwaya, but summing up their sound as “world music” wouldn’t do them justice. On their latest effort “MTMTMK,” the duo blend handfuls of sounds and elements into a hard, catchy dance tune. You can stream the entire album in full via NPR First Listen.
