NOIA’s Week in Pop
NOIA’s debut Habits EP was released this past fall via Cascine & Buen Dia Records from Mexico; & now it is our pleasure & privilege to present the following exclusive guest selections from NOIA titled:
What caught my attention this week + old time underground favorites
Young M.A, “EAT”
No one like her, thank god she made it to the mainstream world. Her words are too good and she has all the style. Would love to make some beats for her.
Awalom Gebremariam, “Tehhelo”
Been obsessed with this guy from Eritrea. The whole album is the best soundtrack to any journey.
Desert, “Saps Prou Be”
Modern Cocteau Twins from Barcelona. Delicious.
Ash Koosha, “Biutiful”
I opened for him the other day in Madrid and he blew my mind. He pushes the boundaries of sound and he’s one step forward or crazier than most of the artists out there that’s for sure. Also, this song is pure emotion.
Sam Evian, “Cherry Tree”
His album premium is one of the best albums of the year but this song he released right before the album dropped, saved my winter. It sounds like a parallel strawberry fields forever in the best of ways.
Rebecca Kill, “Care Too Much”
I don’t know if that makes any sense but to me Rebecca embodies Michael Jackson, Martin Gore and the early Madonna. All cooked in Puerto Rico. This song is a hit. one of the best artists/producers I know that really understands the 80’s nostalgia.
Arooj Aftab, “Man Kunto Maula”
Arooj Aftab is my favorite contemporary singer. I don’t think there’s any way to escape her magic. She heals.
YUNG BEEF, “A.D.R.O.M.I.C.F.M.S”
We have some trap queens and kings blossoming in Spain lately. I dig him specially. His flow is weird and sad and addictive.
