Tesha releases unconventional single 'Funeral' from upcoming EP

Taking cues from Kate Bush, Bjork, and lugubrious 4AD artists like This Mortal Coil and Dead Can Dance, Brooklyn's Tesha delivers a refreshingly anti-pop track to fight Christmas' usual sonic banalities. The edgy, electronic artist is about to release a new EP and just unveiled single Funeral, a track about her mother's funeral (Tesha lost both of her parents a few years ago). Otherworldly and minimal, the song is driven by a slow bass line and a plodding rhythm section, while almost unintelligible vocals seem to express a kind of thoughtful sorrow that sounds at once profound and alien. The EP is scheduled for a January 25th release.

Maũ brings avant hip-hop to Trans-Pecos 11/29

Kamau Wainaina—who performs under the moniker Maũ—is creating shape-shifting, avant music that’s as interdisciplinary as his artistic background. Maũ, a senior at NYU Tisch whose work spans film, photography, and music, put out his single “SUNDOWN” via Invertebrate back in September. The song enters a space free from the boundaries of conventional genre where a slinking electro beat meets stream-of-consciousness spoken word hip-hop:“I wish I could call it word vomit but that would understate it / syllables spilling god willing, I  turn a phrase to payment.” Born in Nairobi, Wainaina's work is largely focused on the ways one’s identity can adapt and shift in different environments. You can catch Maũ as well as Jae Luna, Octopus, and Pom Pom Squad at Trans-Pecos on 11/29 at 8 pm in a show put on by NYU Local. Sara Nuta

Drew Hansen "Stone Forest/Sun Shower"

Trumpeter Drew Hansen released his debut album, Stone Forest/Sun Shower, last week via Bace Records. Hansen blends free jazz, folk music, poetry and more throughout this breathtaking debut. On this project he is accompanied by Artie Black (tenor sax and bass clarinet), Dustin Laurenzi (tenor sax), Katie Ernst (voice and bass), Sam Hasting (guitar), Mike Harmon (bass), Matt Carroll (drums), and John O’Connor (voice and haiku).

The album really needs to be experienced as a whole, but the two title tracks are distinct representations of the sound and style Hansen imagined. Flowing from strummed guitar, to trumpet, to the lush vocals for Katie Ernst, these tracks go way beyond jazz.
