They're back! Josephine & The Artizans seem to be regulars here now.
You remember them they are the awesome Hip-Hopera troupe.
Last time there was Carpe Diem, and before that was Dies Irae and then the first time we met them was with Let Me Go.
Sadly there's some missing videos on that post, I'll try and track them down.
Yesterday Josephine & The Artizans released their highly anticipated second EP, ʻThe Unknownʼ, alongside an official music video for the title track.
Well, here is that aforementioned video, another cracker featuring as always the beautiful voice of Josephine.
You can stream the EP here on Soundcloud.
There is also a link so you can get your own copy.

I thought it was time to catch up on the beautiful Heidi Feek, and I found out that one of her tracks was featured as a teaser for American Horror Story Hotel (another series I don't watch).
A great song, nobody can touch the Elvis version, but Heidi doesn't try,
She just does it her way, and what a way.
Prepare for goose bumps, this is just awesome.
Another song that Elvis also covered, also done very differently.

You remember Anda Volley, she has undergone quite a metamorphosis.
Anda Volley is a singer-songwriter & producer of alternative and electronic music, weaving songs with vivid, insightful, and surreal lyrics. Electronic producer Erik Jackson joined her band as a collaborator in early 2015. Their live sets emphasize beats and grooves, and their recorded works veer into wild ambient and industrial noise exploration. She is based in Boston, and has toured in the US and UK. Her first album Inside the Ghost Machine landed on top lists for 2014. She is also the founder of the electronic improv groove and noise collaborative Ghost Machine Noise.Plus she has a new release, a very striking video and song.
Shades of Enya meets the Bastard Executioner.
But I really am digging it.
The song is the title track from her new album
