Creative New Music Friday: 12/03

It's Friday which means the weekend is right around the corner! Here are seven of the very best artworks for this week's Creative New Music Friday including credits for all the creators involved.

1. Nubiyan Twist - Freedom Fables

Freedom Fables reflects on the power of narratives. Each vocalist on this record explores their own memoirs, a freedom of expression underpinning our belief that music is the ultimate narrative for unity.

2. Rosie Cima & What She Dreamed – Realm of the Warring Gods

Realm of the Warring Gods is a heartfelt musical experience that feels incredibly authentic, reminding us that our imperfections and blemishes are truly what make us special.

3. The Horrors - Lout

The indie shape-shifters The Horrors release new music that retreats from their recent commercial experiments to deliver their ‘nastiest’ music in years.

4. Lake Street Dive - Obviously

Call them what you like — alt-country, indie-pop, pop-folk — the hard-to-classify Lake Street Dive offer top-notch songwriting with progressive lyrics on Obviously, and one of the most underrated vocalist in music today.

5. Rise to the Sky – Let Me Drown With You

Let Me Drown With You is released in loving memory of Rise To The Sky's father, who passed away suddenly. "He was passionate about the people he loved and about everything he did, this music is a clear reflection of our way of life". By far this is the most sincere and expressive album by Rise to the Sky, it displays a more developed and mature sound than the previous releases, so expect strong emotions.

6. Really From - Really From

Fusing bookish indie jazz with emo and math rock, the Boston quartet Really From's self titled album explores the complications of identity while dismantling stale indie-rock paradigms.

7. Raissa – Herogirl 

Recently signed to Mark Ronson’s label, Zelig Records, the 23-year-old French and Spanish pop singer Raissa seems to be rising like foam. Her empowering sound and bold look, along with her magnetic personality has all come together perfectly.
