Nick Carver & The Mean Street Butchers – “The Way That You Walk”

Based in Melbourne, this Australian singer/songwriter and his merry band of Butchers, consisting of Chris Doig, Alex Burkoy, Jake Amy, Abbey Rose and Trudie Potter, has created a sonic crossroads where country-blues, swamp rock and Americana meets. They’ve supported the likes of The Fauves and The Tea Party and played festivals like NYE On The Hill. They released their debut “The River” in 2018.

Simmering on a low sonic heat and creating a steamy aromatic atmosphere, their new single is a delicious dish with sleek vintage flavors. Taken from their upcoming album “ANIMALS”, expected on July 1st, it starts with Steely Dan-like keys and laidback percussion. And with his sauve, authentic vocals singing about men who think their words have no consequence, this is a compelling groove.

Loie – “That’s My Girl”

Born and raised in Brixton, this emerging British singer and songwriter created an unique sound influenced by a culturally enriched upbringing through her Trini-Chinese family heritage. Drawing inspiration from iconic female artists such as Erykah Badu, Kate Bush and Nina Simone, she combines soulful R&B grooves with jazzy undertones. She released her debut single “Take You There” in 2021.

Smooth, seductive and unapologetically retro, her new single takes a leaf out of the vast book of sleek 90s R&B. With an alluring mellow rhythm and sexy synths creating the enticing soundscape, it’s her flirtatious and refined vocals singing words of female empowerment that pull this spellbinding groove together. Blending classic R&B tones with a touch of modernity, this is a phenomenal jam.
