  Ricardo Lemvo’s Accordion-Driven New Single
Ricardo Lemvo’s latest single, “Dikulusu,” is a collaboration with Angolan songwriter Adão Filipe. On the track, Lemvo infuses his joyous sound with accordion-driven semba, one of Angola's most popular styles. The squeezebox is played by Los Angeles-based musician Mario Aguilar, who hails from Mexico. Singing in Portuguese, Kimbundu, and Kikongo, Lemvo delivers a humorous lament about paying alimony that his ex-wife uses to support her lazy, whisky-drinking, pot-smoking new boyfriend.

Alborosie Premieres Video for New Single “Poser”
Sicilian-born reggae artist Alborosie has released “Poser,” a new music video directed by Tony Fisher. The song is the first single from his upcoming EP, which is due for release in September. He explained that the track was inspired by things he sees happening on a regular basis. “It is a time where appearance is more important than the real essence of things. We should be true to ourselves and be as honest as possible to the message and the music. A lot of bad persons are pretending to be good.”
