Stacy Epps - "Floatin'" from the album The Awakening
Stacy Epps is an Atlanta based MC and singer. She has worked with some of the finest underground hip hop artists such as Madlib, MF Doom, J Rawls who we have in rotation on the station. She has the spiritual essences of Alice Coltrane, mixed with abstraction of Bjork, the spaciness of Radiohead and drums of J-Dilla.
The Stills - "Snow in California" from the album Oceans will Rise
The Montreal based band The Stills launched their career with a stately post-punk sound inspired by the likes of Echo & the Bunnymen and Joy Division. All the members known each other since the age of 12. Oceans Will Rise saw the Stills stretching their boundaries even further, this time incorporating sonic experimentalism and uplifting, anthemic rock. (All Music)
Into Arcadia - "Distance=Time" from the album Maps for Children
Into Arcadia is a Milwaukee band that just released their debut album Maps for Children. They were our guests last week on 414 Music.
