Under The Radar

  1. We are very sad to report that modern soul legend Charles Bradley has died. The 68-year-old has lost his battle with cancer today. He was diagnosed with stomach cancer last fall and halted touring. After undergoing treatment, he was given a clean bill of health and was back on the road earlier this year.
  2. We're back down to eight Songs of the Week, after promising last week to stick with a Top 10 for awhile. But it was a slow week for new tracks. Still, there were some clear gems this week, as you will see below, with an easy choice for top song. 
  3. Fazerdaze is the promising new bedroom recording project of New Zealand's Amelia Murray. She released her debut album, Morningside, on the venerable Kiwi label Flying Nun back in May. We previously posted the videos for "Lucky Girl" and "Take It Slow." Now she has shared a video for "Bedroom Talks" in which she wanders Times Square at night with headphones on while she sings along to the song.
  4. Moses Sumney released his debut full-length album, Aromanticism, today via Jagjaguwar. He has now shared a video for "Lonely World." Allie Avital directed the black & white clip, which features Sumney on an alien world where he is seduced by a strange creature. 
  5. The Horrors released their fifth album, the fittingly titled V, today via Wolftone/Caroline. Usually for our Album of the Week posts we have an especially written detailed write up of why the album is the week's best, but these week various factors prevented us from pulling that off.
