Earbits is all about discovery. There are lots of ways for you to find your next favorite artist, that next club banger, or the perfect playlist to suit your mood. Each week our music team works to expand these horizons even more, and we wanted to with you some of our faves with you every week. Take a listen, as our editors bring you yet another way to discover great music.
Ethos – Logan Richardson
The sophomore recording from one of the most exciting voices in modern jazz. His playing is angular and dynamic while the backing band provides a beautiful, restrained counterpoint that softens the group’s edges. I’m a sucker for cuts like “Philanthropic Landscapes,” a swelling, drum-less interchange between voice, vibes, and Logan’s alto.
Shed Every Last Fear – Saint
We had the opportunity at Earbits to preview this record a few weeks back, but we’re now happy to feature the first full lenth from London, Future-Crooner Saint. Cast against a palate of chilling underwater synths and jagged trap beats, Saint’s sound falls somewhere between The Weekend, James Blake and Spooky Black.
Chants of the Russian Orthodox Church – Monks and Choirs of Kiev Pechersk Lavra
This recording from the Kiev Pechersk Monastery is dripping with ambience. The cold air and the stone walls of this 11th century (yes, 11th) Orthodox enclave are tactile. Transcendent, otherworldly music.
Revival – Mind Soul Child
‘Revival’ by Mind Soul Child is a groovy House record with definite old-school UK garage and Chicago vibes.

Live & Aflame Sessions – Akua Naru
Strung together by an amazing poetic voice, Live & Aflame Sessions is not your typical hip-hop record. This mélange of spritual jazz textures and R&B grooves are navigated elegantly, but fiercly by the MC. This has long been one of my favorite records on Earbits.
Forms – HedustMA
HedustMA is the project of producer Ovnimooon. The album ‘Forms’, released on Spiral Trax, is a techno belter with a strong Psy influence.
