LET'S MEDITATE
9/21/18

For L.A. yoga teacher Alex Dawson, teaching classes and private lessons aren’t the only thing occupying her schedule lately. Set for release on 10/5, Om Mani Pedme Hum is a three-song meditation EP by Dawson, featuring guitarist Matt Piper and produced by John von Seggern. The latter's work includes programming on Jon Hassell’s recent Warp Records' album Listening to Pictures and a popular Indian-style remix of Nelly Furtado’s “Like a Bird.”

In addition to the single “Om Mani Padme Hum,” the EP also includes two other two Sanskrit mantras, “Gopala” and “Jai Hanuman.” After meeting von Seggern and Piper, Dawson notes, “I fell in love with the collaboration and how the mantras came to life.”

A free EP release event will take place on Sunday (10/7) at noon and will feature an hour-long Kirtan session at the Wanderlust Hollywood after Soulscape. For other information and details, click here.

Namaste, buddies.

ONE TO WATCH: KAYA STEWART
9/18/18

The Red Light-repped Kaya Stewart is garnering some serious, early buzz. The songstress—independent on the records side—recently teamed up with U.K. producer Jamie Lidell, who's now based in Nashville, to bring us soulful pop earworms via new project LIYA.

The duo dropped their first single “California” in late July. And more music from LIYA is expected to be released later this year.

"Jamie and I hit it off from the first day we met in Nashville," Stewart recently told Fader. "In a room surrounded with Jamie’s vintage synthesizers, we experimented without any pressure or label breathing down our neck and 16 songs later we realized we had actually made a unique sounding album. This first release 'California' is an example of us having that creative freedom and even though the song is full of irony it still sounds uplifting in a weird way."

Stewart, who played to a packed Bardot for last night’s School Night, previously racked up 5m+ Spotify streams with her debut single, "In Love With a Boy." She's planning to drop new single “So Good” in October. In the meantime, you can watch the vid for “California” below.

MORE FROM MORGUE
9/17/18

Gothic pop songstress Kailee Morgue dropped a new video last week to accompany her latest single, “Siren.” Receiving co-directing credit on the video, the hands-on creative also played a role in set design, wardrobes, props and hiring a local video team from her hometown of Phoenix, AZ. “The video I shot for ‘Siren’ is the first music video that I completely thought up the concept for and directed myself,” said Morgue. 

“Siren” premiered on BBC Radio 1’s Best New Pop and is a solid follow-up to 2017 breakout track “Medusa.” The 20-year-old, self-described “introvert” got her start on Soundcloud before her debut track peaked at #1 on HypeMachine, leading to her inking a deal with Republic last summer.

While Morgue prepares to release new music this fall, watch her vid for “Siren” below.
