Add London's exhilarating Ezra Collective to the wave of modern jazz artists reinvigorating the genre, like Thundercat, the Comet is Coming, and Kamasi Washington. Ezra Collective's debut album, You Can't Steal My Joy, is released on April 26 and on UKNY at 11, another track from the quintet who've got an upcoming gig at Brooklyn's Rough Trade on March 10.
Glasgow's Stina Tweeddale strips down Honeyblood as her own one-woman project and Jeremy Warmsley, who moonlights in Summer Camp, continues his year-long solo journey documenting every month—and he has something to say about the wintry abyss of February. Also, Aldous Harding, Rozi Plain, IDER, Black Country New Road, Underworld, Fold, and Hannah Peel's neat twist on an iconic song from the '80s.
