We were thrilled to have performances by emerging indie artists Banks and Bonobo!
When Banks broke out with 2014’s Goddess, she became the world’s most blogged about artist, with a voice compared to the likes of Fiona Apple, Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill, and a sound that took alt-pop and R&B to electrifying new places.
With every song written and controlled creatively by Banks, The Altar, Banks’ new album, pushes those edges even further, and pulls no punches. It’s an inspiring confrontation of complicated love, pain, and self-doubt.hernameisbanks.com
Simon Green, aka Bonobo, returns with his sixth album — the masterful, magisterial “Migration” is a record which cements his place in the very highest echelons of electronic music and indeed, beyond.
By turns lush, manic, beautiful, melancholy, joyful, packed with both emotion and technical skill, this is perhaps his most ambitious attempt yet to capture the very textures of human existence in his work, as Green says of the broad dynamics on the album, “Life has highs, lows, loud and quiet moments, beautiful ones and ugly ones. Music is a reflection of life.”bonobomusic.com
