Sun Hop Fat’s New “Elephant Parade” Gives Funky Twist to Ethiopian Jazz

Listening to SF afrobeat collective Sun Hop Fat makes you feel confident, like you’re on a mission and you know exactly where you’re headed. Pop on tracks like “Rhinosaur” and “Silly Putty” and it feels like you’re driving an undulating road, multicolored images calling you to dance or to ease you deeper into your chair, eyes closed toes tapping. This ten piece instrumental band tells stories without words. They’re Ethiopian jazz meets American funk, a touch of bossa nova and a little psychedelic twist. Luckily for us, they’re playing December 8th at The Independent with Royal Jelly Jive. Put your swaying, dancing, tapping shoes on and catch em. -Michelle Kicherer

Sammy Rae brings soulful jazz to Bowery Electric on 11.19

Sammy Rae forges a sound entirely of her own in her debut EP, The Good Life, released July 20. This artist executes her style with such playful spirit and vocal dexterity that this new collection can’t help but gleam with personality. Rae’s tracks don’t feel as though they're sung, but rather performed, and laced with a bit theatricality and a ton of confidence. Capable of fitting comfortably in either a swanky cocktail lounge, a roaring jazz club, a theater, or a suburban kitchen, her sultry jazz soul has a quality that allows it to wear a multitude of stylistic hats. The EP’s opening track, “The Feeling,” is a flawless preview of her sound, unveiling the liveliness that exists in her layers of joyful saxophone, bouncy percussion and vibrant lyrics. Sammy Rae’s songs are alive and pulse with brilliant authenticity, showcasing not only her musical acuity, but also her colorful character as an artist. To stream Sammy Rea's The Good Life EP, check out her pages on Soundcloud or Bandcamp. See her live at Bowery Electric on November 19 - Rebecca Carroll

Soul songwriter MELD launches Kickstarter for debut LP

Having released her debut EP H.U.R.T. in 2017, soul fusion singer-songwriter Melanie Dewey -- known as MELD -- has launched a Kickstarter to kick off recording sessions with her band for her upcoming debut LP. Dewey has performed around Nashville for a few years now, and has taken her act across ten different states and over twenty-five cities. Her hope with her music and her debut album is to help inspire more women into the forefront of soul music and to show that eclectic musical elements can jam well together when put together the right way. With her Kickstarter, Dewey hopes not only to cover all the costs for her band, the studio time, and the other production expenses, but also to build a record that will allow her to share her voice beyond anywhere she's ever shared it before. You can view the campaign page here, and you can watch Dewey and the rest of MELD perform live at Rockwood Music Hall in New York below. - Will Sisskind
