MUSIC: José James – EveryLittleThing

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/jose-james-08-300x250.jpg

José James is someone who’s been a torchbearer for classic soul, R&B and jazz vocals. While he’s not afraid to wear his influences on his sleeve (every time I have seen him live he’s rocked a Yankee fitted cap like he was about to freestyle) he makes it fit organically with his traditionalist sound.

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/2014-04-14-11.03.46-1-300x250.jpg

When running down a list of popular wine regions around the world, the typical spots come to mind: California, France, Spain, Italy, and so on – but Bulgaria? Normally, the country never would have crossed my mind, however, I recently had the opportunity to sample a number of Bulgarian wines at the Astor Center during a [...]

Here’s Lykke Li‘s video for her single, “No Rest For The Wicked”. Here the pretty little Swedish chanteuse plays the role of poor Midwestern looking girl in love with a longshoreman who happens to be black. Unfortunately, the townies at the bar don’t like it too much and it turns into a mini American History [...]

Here’s the new Denita & Sene video and single. Here it’s much more atmospheric then they are used to (outside the little trap breakdown that sneaks in at the beginning of the chorus). The video’s a black and white treatment that has the duo hanging in nothingness with edits of trippy clips; this one is [...]
