Who is akin to whom? Are they spiritual or elective kinships? In the first instance, all the pieces recorded here are akin to each other in that they are especially suitable for that most sensitive of all keyboard instruments, the clavichord. Beauty is another common feature, which they each display in their own way. And in the circle of fifths these pieces are very close to one another.

The return of the band with the best name in contemporary funk is imminent with their new album and sixth studio LP, Free Your Soul, all set to drop and man are they fired up! Naturally, if the band in question is called Shaolin Temple Defenders and they’re fired up the first place anyone is going to point the finger is at the White Lotus Clan.

With H.E.R., the singer and multi-instrumentalist of the same name, who declines to show her face or confirm her identity, has reconfigured the whole of her output into one long-playing album: Vol. 1 and 2 are here, along with six previously unreleased tracks. H.E.R. is soulful and soul-baring R&B, with immaculate songwriting and soothing melodies. A delicate cover of Drake's "Jungle" wrings hope from defeat, but the lush arrangement of "Rather Be" reveals a penchant for the power ballad. Daniel Caesar has the album’s lone guest spot (“Best Part”), and, together with H.E.R., they deliver a duet in the image of Lauryn Hill and D’Angelo’s timeless “Nothing Even Matters.”

Kllo, an electronic pop collaboration between Melbourne cousins Chloe Kaul and Simon Lam, waded in figurative backwater for much of 2016, amidst an extensive world tour. These were exciting times; the duo's Well Worn EP furthered the promise of 2014 EP Cusp, receiving millions of streams and landing Kllo on festival stages as well as Artists-to-Watch lists. Nonetheless, the stretch kept them far from home, isolated and vulnerable, treading through perpetual uncharted territory while yearning for the comforts of the familiar. Kllo have officially come out the other end of the stilted estuary with twelve compositions cultivated to feel timeless and crafted, and equally current. The duo’s debut full length - and their most realized work to date - Backwater celebrates the ephemeral and the enduring changes in emotion, the downfalls and the dissolves. It’s an album that parts course with its flow, and flourishes in a lowland.

Canadian singer/songwriter Matthew Good rose to prominence in the mid-'90s fronting the popular alt-rock group Matthew Good Band. A crafty songwriter with a strong melodic sense and a somewhat brash outspokenness, Good led MGB from regional success in their native Vancouver to Juno-winning, double-platinum status over the course of four albums before the group disbanded in 2002. The following year, he made his solo debut with Avalanche, a more brooding and thoughtful stylistic departure that featured accompaniment from the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra on a number of tracks. A more stripped-down live approach was taken for his follow-up, White Light Rock & Roll Review, released the following year. Arriving in 2005, In a Coma compiled highlights from his years with MGB as well as more recent solo material.

There’s been a lot of hyperbole concerning “the death of rock music” and bands “saving rock’n’roll” of late, and while most of the talk borders on nonsense, wouldn’t it be great if an act such as The Mighty could revitalize this much-loved genre? This answer can be found after listening to Boycott's new album called The Mighty.

SUPERSONIC BLUES MACHINE released their exciting new studio album CALIFORNISOUL. That’s exactly what it is. It's the missing soundtrack to a summertime drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 1971! This album shines in the depth and soul of the songs and songwriting - no cookie cutter filler to be found. As they've proven on their first album and round of shows, it's not a party unless you invite some friends, and for Californisoul, they've brought along some heavy hitters. Guests on the album include Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Steve Lukather (Toto) throws down some stunning licks, Eric Gales is back in the fold, Robben Ford brings his bag of soulfully sophisticated chops and Walter Trout brings some silky slow blues. You may come for the stars, but you'll want to stay for the whole show. Supersonic Blues Machine is truly a family as well as a band, and these guests don't phone it in, they stay for dinner. The community aspect is very real, and one of the band's great treasures.
