Track Out Today from Fox Fagan
The track’s creative process was spontaneous and meditative. “I remember going and picking up this strat my bandmate Pelle Hillstrom had left behind,” Fox says. “I had some pedals set up and went straight into the amp that was already miced up. I just hit this chord and this rhythm and it just felt so satisfying and kind of meditative in a way. So I thought I’d better record it. Then I just didn’t stop.”
3x JUNO Nominees / 4x CFMA Winning Canadian Global Music Supergroup Sultans of String Unleash “Hurricane”
Finnish-African group Maajo makes their debut on Brooklyn’s Wonderwheel Recordings with “Better Days,” an old school, upbeat disco cut with nods to Balearic, reggae and funk. Featuring the soulful voices of two new band members, Mauritian drummer-vocalist Gilbert K and Zambian singer Waina, “Better Days” pays homage to 70s African and Caribbean Disco. Fusing a dance-floor-ready beat with live horn arrangements and uplifting vocals, the track is both ready for the club or a Sunday morning session. In addition to English, the lyrics are sung in the vocalists’ native Creole and Nyanja; the “Kumba” chant pleads for the strength to get through the bad times.
