Radio K Posts Sessions From Jeff Hanson, Muja Messiah

Radio K has posted two sessions very worthy of your time. The first one is from rapper Muja Messiah, and he performs three tracks from this summer's Thee Adventures of a B-Boy D-Boy. Those tracks are: dryly ironic "Beautiful", statement of purpose "So Far, So Good", and the raucous, rocking "Madness". Backing him on all of these songs are eclectic soulsters Black Blondie, who provide a driving presence of "Madness", and adeptly back him on the other two tracks. Samahra manages to get some good vocal work on "Beautiful" and "So Good". Not only that, but she also knocks it out of the park on "For The Taste", one of two Black Blondie tracks that the group squeezes into the session.

Listen to all of the great music here.

For a local artists with a more recent release (i.e., last week), look no further than Jeff Hanson. The Kill Rock Stars artist laid down four songs of gentle folk music, which should be good for those of us easing back into the work week after a relaxing Labor Day. Check out the haunting, Elliot Smith-esque falsetto of "Maryann", and the solo acoustic likes of three others, here.

That's a great comparison! Really interesting. I wouldn't have thought of that.
