Chicago’s Sidewalk Chalk announced its sophomore release, Leaves, today with a free download of the first single, “There She Goes,” premiering on Okayplayer. Dropping on February 25th, the new album offers up the 8-piece’s unique mix of Hip-Hop, Soul, and Jazz that reminds us of the jazz influenced beats of the Native Tongues era. MC Rico Sisney’s smooth flow and the soulful vocals of Maggie Vagle are supported by first rate musicianship making this one collective not to be ignored.
Download “There She Goes” below and stay tuned for 2014 tour dates including album release shows in Chicago and NYC.
Multi-talented vocalist and producer Khari Mateen this week released his Qualia: Fall EP, which masterfully traverses the worlds of soul, rock, and blues. Think a cross between Gary Clark Jr. and Van Hunt with a little extra something else – can’t be mad at that.
