Air Waves – “Milky Way”

“Hold me, don’t let me go,” Nicole Schneit sings repeatedly on “Milky Way,” the first single from her upcoming album Parting Glances.

When Stereogum first saw Fool’s Gold open for Cat Power a little over a year ago, Amrit noted the LA collective’s “love for benga (Kenya-based), juju (rooted in Nigeria), and the Congolese genre called soukous (mother of kwassa kwassa, maybe you’ve heard of it).” At last night’s packed IAMSOUND showcase, I was reminded most of… More »
