Description:

Under the name A.CHAL, Peruvian-born singer, songwriter, and producer Alejandro Chal offers a moody, atmospheric take on electronic R&B with lyrics half-sung, half-rapped, and often switching between English and Spanish. Chal’s family moved to the U.S. when he was four years old, settling in Queens, New York. He began rapping at a young age and soon began experimenting with beats with a neighborhood friend. Relocating to Los Angeles in 2010 to pursue a music career, Chal self-released his debut EP, 2013’s Ballroom Riots, which caught the interest of Sony ATV, who signed him to a publishing deal. His 2015 single “Round Whippin'” found widespread exposure when Beats1 DJ Zane Lowe gave the song a world premiere on his show. It was an effective boon to Chal’s career, and by the year’s end he’d racked up numerous critical accolades. “Round Whippin'” was included on his 2016 debut full-length, Welcome to GAZI, introducing his hazy, nocturnal sound to an even larger audience. Following a collaboration with French producer STWO, Chal began issuing singles in advance of his next LP, ON GAZ, which arrived in June 2017. ~ Timothy Monger

Keith Sweat’s first studio album since 2011 arrived as the singer’s syndicated radio program, The Sweat Hotel, was approaching its tenth year. It could be deduced that the gig has sharpened Sweat’s ears and pen, as Dress to Impress features his best round of songs in well over a decade. Beside a small cast of writing and production associates that includes Wirlie Morris and Derek Allen, Sweat focuses on romance and emotional connection. The album sounds fresh while drawing from numerous eras, just as the Sweat Hotel playlist roams from decade to decade.

Description:

London native Sinead Harnett, inspired at a young age by the likes of Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson, as well as Lauryn Hill’s role in Sister Act 2, got a foothold in the music industry through a series of collaborations during the early 2010s. In 2012, she made a small splash as the featured vocalist on “Boiling,” the dreamlike lead track on Disclosure’s The Face EP, and sounded like a confident veteran. The following year, she contributed to Kidnap Kid’s “So Close” and Ryan Hemsworth’s “Small + Lost,” but she also made her solo debut on Black Butter with “Got Me,” a track that was remixed by MK (Marc Kinchen, who had taken Storm Queen’s “Look Right Through” to the top of the U.K. pop chart). More notably, Harnett was featured on three of the tracks on Rudimental’s U.K. number one album Home: the title track, “Hide,” and “Baby.” Harnett’s collaborative work continued well into 2014 with DJ Q’s “Notice Me” and Snakehips’ “Days with You.” She signed to Virgin EMI in the U.K. and released a four-track EP of her own, N.O.W., which featured a track produced by Snakehips, as well as sophisticated pop in the forms of “Paradise” and “High Wire.” ~ Andy Kellman

The man once called “Americas favorite gospel song stylist”, Rev. Harold Jackson “Jack” Holcomb, has been gone for over 40 years, but his albums are as popular today as they were in his fifteen-year recording career. Here in this space I will share what I have learned about Jack Holcomb, information that has not been easy to find because Jack has been gone since July 1968, long before there was a World Wide Web. Many people have joined with me and helped to build up this web site, and I hope you will, too. We want this to be a resource for people who are interested in knowing more about a fellow Christian who loved his Lord and raised his voice in songs of praise his whole life long.

Description:

Until a late flurry of percussion arrives, doleful guitar and bass are Solna Rowe’s only accompaniment on opener “Supermodel,” a stinging kiss-off to an adulterous ex. It doesn’t prepare you for the inventively abstract production that follows—disembodied voices haunting the airy trap-soul of “Broken Clocks,” “Anything”‘s stuttering video-game sonics—but it instantly establishes the emotive power of her rasping, percussive vocal. Whether she’s feeling empowered by her physicality on the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Doves in the Wind” or wrestling with insecurity on “Drew Barrymore,” SZA’s songs impact quickly and deeply.
