New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh album by Erykah Badu

New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh album by Erykah Badu.


Late Summer Music Picks

So recently, music has been stuck in the doldrums with no wind in sight.  My ears have been itching to hear that new cutting and innovative sound that brings a sort of freshness to the music scene.   I came across this band one day when my colleague was talking them up and asked me, “Did I ever hear of the Friendly Fires?”.  I told him no and pursued to work on my usual day-to-day tasks at hand.   I checked them out on YouTube later that day and I instantly became a fan! Hailing from St. Albans, UK, they offer a fresh new sound to the synth pop/rock genre with a euro twist.  They definitely offer a great on stage performance with their uptempo songs and bouncy beats!  At the top of this year they released they’re acclaimed single “Skeleton Boy”.  This song is a hit along with the band.  Definitely put this group on your radar as I am sure that they will create some buzz in the upcoming months!

Friendly Fires gets 4 out of 5 music notes!
