English producer Gang Colours has released his recommended sophomore album earlier this week. His new single “Why Didn’t You Call?” features the highly talented Lulu James who’s joining Will Ozanne on vocals in this smooth track.
Invisible In Your City is available now from Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings. Also, don’t miss Gang Colours performing at Sudpol Luzern on the 18th October at 15 years of Radio 3FACH, where he’s sharing the bill with Washed Out.

UK Garage rockers Mazes have not only released a great LP called Ores & Minerals this year, they have a 10 song mini-album coming out in October on FatCat Records. The nervous first song off this new record named Better Ghosts can be streamed below. Caution: It’s extremly catchy!

After «Thor’s Stone» (a month ago) we get to hear another (absolutely fantastic) new track by Liverpool’s Matthew Barnes aka Forest Swords. This time the song comes together with a short description that makes us really happy:
«Debut album Engravings out Aug 26 2013 through Tri Angle Records.»

There haven’t been too much new posts on this blog lately – not for a reason: While one half of guerolitomusic is traveling around in the States for a couple of weeks, I am enjoying the summer here in Switzerland and counting down the last days until I go north (to Scandinavia) for a while. This short ‘summer break’ is not going to take too long though – so stay tuned!
Meanwhile I’d like to present you three songs from some of the jazz LP’s and singles I more and more find myself buying lately.
This may be the start of a small series about jazz, funk and world music in general here on the blog. Let’s see.
Hope you enjoy!
Streaming only I’m afraid:

L.A. R’n'B duo Dead Times has already won us over with their tune “Centuries”, which was released earlier this year. Being suckers for modern r’n'b that isn’t too cheesy we also fell for the duo’s new number “Inner Gold”. Listen to it below.

You wouldn’t talk about Sampha as a newcomer. The 24-year-old R&B singer/producer from London is quite well-known after his various (and great) collaborations with artists like SBTRKT (2010), Jessie Ware (2011) or Drake. But in fact, he has not really put out any of his solo material so far, except an EP called Sundaza (on Young Turks) back in 2010.
Luckily this will change in 2013: In a new «rising» article on Pitchfork Sampha announces Dual, a forthcoming EP on Young Turks (out July 29), together with a first track off it: «Without». Sounds fantastic.

All We Are is a indie pop outfit based in Liverpool. Its members’ backgrounds are quite diverse though. Guro is from Norway, Richard is Irish and Luis is from Brazil. After last year’s atmospheric debut EP We Hunt, the trio has now released a new single called “Utmost Good”, a disco-influenced, but rather psychedelic-heavy pop tune. We love it.
