Year-end festivities are fast approaching. In the spirit of the season, we’ve gathered a diverse set of musicians to backtrack all the celebrations ahead. From American bluegrass, to Dallas-based norteño, whatever genre you’re feeling we have you covered (literally in some cases).
Malbec – Roma (MLBC)
The Russian musical group known as Мальбэк or “Malbec” in English, has just released their album, Roma. The group’s past albums have been featured in the top 20 most popular albums back in 2018 in Apple Music’s Russian segment.
As reported by a Russian publication, Coba, Malbec’s new album experiments with different sounds but stays true to their usual autotune vibes. Roma includes a total of 15 original tracks, one of them being a collaboration with Thomas Mraz, a futuristic Hip-Hop/Rap artist.
Take a deep dive into Malbec’s unique beats and listen to Roma now.
Trampled By Turtles – Sigourney Fever (Banjodad Records)
Minnesota natives, the bluegrass/folk-rock band, Trampled by Turtles have released their new EP, Sigourney Fever. The band consisting of Erik Berry, Dave Simonett, Ryan Young and Tim Saxhaug, have put out a total of eight full albums, three of which have landed on the US Billboard charts.
This new record includes renditions of songs by artists such as Warren Zevon, Neil Young, Iris DeMent, Radiohead, and the Faces. Rolling Stone explained that Trampled by Turtles’ take on “Ooh La La,” the classic singalong from 1973 is similar to the Faces’ take on the song. “They follow the lead of the “influential U.K. bar band by enlisting bass player Tim Saxhaug to handle lead vocals instead of singer Dave Simonett — the Faces’ original was sung not by frontman Rod Stewart but by guitarist Ronnie Wood.“
Rock your way into Sigourney Fever and take a listen before they hit the road in 2020 for a U.S. tour!
