Recent discoveries in music

I was listening to Leon Bridges - River, such an inspiring tune and I really only have the YouTube algorithm to thank for that. Especially in the past year, I've come across some excellent music that I think you might also enjoy. Top of my list are Kishi Bashi and Jacob Collier, both of which were found through NPR's Tiny Desk. It's worth having that alone as your playlist, they do a very good job of vetting their performers. KEXP from Seattle also does a great job!

Kishi Bashi is a classically trained violinist who uses a mixture of electronics in his solo stuff, it's really cool! I especially enjoy 'Philosophize in it! Chemicalize with it!', but there are many other great songs to chill out to.

Put simply, Jacob Collier is a musical genius, a master of harmony and any number of instruments. His stuff is heavily inspired by Jazz, but is very modern, and although it is full of many instruments and other elements, it still sounds complete and well-rounded. Highly recommended! My particular favourites are 'Saviour', 'Hideaway', and especially the live version of 'Don't You Know' with Snarky Puppy.
