Johnny Mafia – Vomit Candy

Erika Angell – Dress of Stillness

Discover “Dress of Stillness”, the new single from Swedish singer and songwriter Erika Angell. This piece owes its title to a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke. “ Although it is originally a love poem to God – affirming and beautiful – it seems to me that there is something exaggerated and excessive about it. » she explains. “How something excessively generous can suddenly feel overwhelming and imposed.” »

Warren Haynes, Jim James, Grace Potter – Gold Dust Woman

The frontman of Gov’t Mule continues the tradition of the Christmas charity concert and has just released the 20th volume. On this occasion, enjoy a cover of “Gold Dust Woman” by Fleetwood Mac with Jim James and Grace Potter, available in this same live.

The Moontunes – Elephant Wizard

The Acadian group Les Moontunes mixes mysticism with a touch of madness in their new single “Elephant Wizard”. Mixing blues, psychedelic influences and 70s metal in the style of early Black Sabbath, this track will weigh down your winter playlist with its pachydermic power.
