With all due respect, Mikey Buishas’ solo project, 0 Stars, feels ill-named. That's actually a zero! The Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist has released one of the best of albums of 2019 with Blowing on a Marshmallow in Perpetuity. While its not-quite, half-hour playtime may feel slight, it more than makes up for the length with Mikey’s fluid combination of endless melodies and complex musicality supporting his gently-bruised vocals.

Emergence (The Process of Coming Into Being), the debut album from Mwenso and the Shakes is a live set, which makes sense considering the Harlem-based group has earned its reputation as a powerhouse stage act. Led by the London-raised, Sierra Leonean Michael Mwenso, the Shakes' Emergence is a collection of well-chosen covers and original tracks that serve as the souvenir to one of their thrilling shows you can’t stop raving about or the sneak peek to whet the appetites of the uninitiated.

Listening the music of Brooklyn indie label, Gentle Reminder, is like tuning into the best college radio station. This might not be a coincidence since label head Reese Higgins first cut his teeth in great music curation at his alma mater’s radio station, WMUC (University of Maryland, College Park). Originally from the D.C./Maryland area, Reese’s label has been responsible for releasing the work of two past Talk Music Talk guests, James Tillman and Will Moloney. [This episode features a 7-song Gentle Reminder playlist handpicked by Reese Higgins.] Visit Gentle Reminder online:...

Talk Music Talk with boice

Drummer and jazz artist Antonio Sanchez has a long and storied CV that just keeps getting more and more impressive. From graduating Magna Cum Laude at the Berklee College of Music to being a longtime member of the Pat Metheny Group to his Golden Globe-nominated score for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman film. The five-time Grammy winner is equally astounding as a bandleader; his most recent release is this year’s Lines in the Sand, which features his band Migration and is the Mexican-American composer’s response to our current administration’s immigration policy.

Talk Music Talk with boice

There's something about YATTA that can neither be defined or contained, but is wholly familiar. It's somewhat akin to that feeling you experience when a dear friend crosses your mind and shortly thereafter they text you. In this way, the Brooklyn-based artist’s music, voice and poetry can be a comfort, yet like nothing you've ever heard. YATTA’s 2016 debut, Spirit Said Yes!, was merely a warm-up for this year's stunning WAHALA (PTP), an exploration of their many journeys that include being black and trans. [This episode features “Francis” from WAHALA in its entirety.] Visit YATTA...

Talk Music Talk with boice

Singer-Songwriter Rasha Jay instinctively knew that the path to her passion meant, as she says, writing her own story. Even if that meant shifting her focus from a career in theater or songwriting for other artists. Rasha’s intuition has led to her hard-won and exciting second EP, High Dive. Her sound is an eclectic palette of soul, rock and alternative music with that powerhouse voice always at the center of your attention. [This episode features High Dive’s title track in its entirety.] High Dive EP Release Party (August 23, 2019): Fox and Crow, Jersey City...

It's the return of Public Speaking; the electronic solo project of Jason Anthony Harris. With his third appearance on TMT, Jason’s new album, Six Golden Tumors (Floordoor Records), is the brilliant reason for the occasion. The Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter and sound artist’s latest release is the outcome of his deep research into Old Testament violence and horror movies. [This episode features “A Fox with No Eyes and a Hole for a Mouth” from Six Golden Tumors in its entirety.] Six Golden Tumors Album Release Party (August 20, 2019): (with Dead Rider, A Bunch of Dead People &...

Talk Music Talk with boice

There are many reasons to admire Sir Ari Gold, besides the fact that he was knighted by a drag queen: He's been an openly gay pop singer from the top of his career for nearly two decades. Anything with his name on it, from music videos to performances, is a thrilling mix of provocation and heart. And over the past 6+ years, Ari’s been fighting cancer with a determination most people will never possess. GoldNation-Remix to Freedom, Ari’s most recent album, is his celebration of life through dance music; it features new versions of songs from his 2015 studio release, Soundtrack to Freedom....

In the ‘90s you couldn't escape the sounds of Ruffhouse Records. Their roster included the classic hip-hop of Cypress Hill, Kris Kross, Kool Keith, Fugees and Lauryn Hill. In 1989, the label was founded by Chris Schwartz and his partner, Joe Nicolo. Chris’s new memoir, Ruffhouse: From the Streets of Philly to the Top of the ‘90s Hip-Hop Charts, not only chronicles his perspective on the music business but also his oftentimes, tumultuous personal life. Throughout its pages, Ruffhouse is a prime example of someone who never gave up on his dreams. Chris continues to be a music pioneer with...

There's a fluidity in the voice of Theo Bleckmann that allows him to swing between various musical genres without forsaking his uniqueness in his original compositions or on interpretations. Theo’s talent shines whether he's subverting jazz on his 2017 Elegy release, creating new color's with Kate Bush’s music on his Hello Earth covers album or experimenting with Joseph Branciforte on their duo project, LP1.
