City Slang is extremely excited to announce the signing of London-based Cristobal And The Sea; a proper European union of a band, if there ever was one. The quartet hail from four corners of our diverse continent. They are: Alejandro Romero from Spain (bass/vox), João Seixas from Portugal (guitar/vox), Leïla Séguin from Corsica/France (flute/vox) and Josh Oldershaw from old Blighty (drums).
Within this melting pot of dreamy tropicalia there are notes of their southern Mediterranean culture and a Brazilian bossa nova feel in João’s guitar style, all underpinned by a beat-generation vibe that seeps into all their songs. All perfectly captured on this debut by Brooklyn producer, Rusty Santos (Animal Collective, Vashti Bunyan, Grizzy Bear). More after the jump, but first, listen to "My Love (Ay Ay Ay)"

On September 11th EMA released bonus track “False Flag” which she describes as her “lost generation take on 9/11" on New Hive. Following up that important track, she has put together a 34 page multi-media zine Back To The Void. This zine “demonstrates how it feels to go from being relatively unknown to having a larger online presence, and how it feels when your online self slips out of your control.”

It's soul music! And truly universal; uniting rhythm and styles from our world over to help you move, relate and be, Sinkane’s Mean Love rolls like an emotional, existential history of the artist. Co-produced with long-time Sinkane collaborator and childhood friend Greg Lofaro, Ahmed Gallab has created an altogether unique compound of sound, stylistically nostalgic and ultramodern at the […] READ ON

Sylvan Esso was not meant to be a band. Rather, Amelia Meath had written a song called “Play It Right” and sung it with her trio Mountain Man. She’d met Nick Sanborn, an electronic producer working under the name Made of Oak, in passing on a shared bill in a small club somewhere. She asked him to scramble it, to render her work his way. He did the obligatory remix, but he sensed […] READ ON
