Thank you to everyone who tuned-into the Friday 5/7/2021 edition of BumbleBee Brunch on the website, Android app, and on 90.7 FM WKKL, Cape Cod's Classic Alternative. The show was packed with great new tunes from Modest Mouse, The Chelsea Curve, James, Aunty Social, XVOTO, Brad Sucks, Unstabile, Batons, and Mumble Tide along with some classic Boston tracks from Passion Pit and Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers.
London rapper/singer/actress Simbiatu Abisola Abiola Ajikawo is better known to the music world by her stage name, Little Simz. Her fourth LP "Sometimes I Might Be Introvert" follows her 2020 "Drop 6" EP and is her first full-length album since 2019's "Grey Area."
The new LP is set for release on 9/3/2021 on her own Age 101 label. Check-out her website to pre-order/pre-save the album and check-out the music video for the song "Introvert." I first heard this song a week ago on British radio and found it spellbinding!
Friday's show also saw a new track from Austin, Texas artist Tim Kile. Originally from New England, Tim moved to Montreal where he became a founding member of alternative rock band Arcade Fire.
"These Things Are Being Gathered For The Fire" is Tim's debut solo LP and defintely worth multiple listens. It's available now on Bandcamp and all your favorite streaming services. We've played three different singles from the record heavily here on BumbleBee Radio and on Friday we gave a fourth tune entitled "N I G H T B I R D" a spin for the very first time. Stay tuned to hear it again many times in the near future on The Bee!
Formed back in 2016 Worcester's Evil Felipe is the Surf-Punk trio of Ella & Maya Staltare and Emma Bain. Their EP "Spacing Out" was released on Friday and is the follow-up to their 2019 album, "June Gloom."
"Spacing Out" is available on their Bandcamp page via Five By Two Records, home of Circus Trees and Pillbook PLBK. As a matter of fact, Aaron Garcia from Pillbook PLBK produced, mixed, and mastered the new EP! Listen for the first track, "50's Love Song" over the coming days and weeks on BumbleBee Radio!
