Music Monday: Doctor P, Moon Taxi, Lo Talker, Saleka, and Declan McKenna

Circus Records icon Doctor P presents ‘Won’t Let Go’. Taking 2020 by storm, the bass music legend dives head first into another vocally driven melodic bass number and comes up with the goods yet again. 

‘Won’t Let Go’ comes hot on the tail of ‘OD’ featuring the hotly tipped talents of singer-songwriter Koolkid and earning high praise across the internet.

Alt/rock favorite Moon Taxi has released their last new track of the year, titled “The Beginning,” just over a month ahead of the January 22, 2021 release of their sixth full-length album Silver Dream. Recently, the track was featured in the end credits of the first episode of the cult-favorite SHOWTIME Original Series Shameless’ eleventh season.

“The Beginning” also arrives with a video consisting of footage from Moon Taxi’s October 23 socially distanced performance at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, GA.

Athens, GA based Lo Talker unveils “Automatic Love,” an upbeat love song mixing the crisp psychedelia of Sgt. Pepper’s-era Beatles  with the honeyed indie folk of My Morning Jacket. It is the second song Lo Talker has released from their upcoming album Comedy Of Errors which is due out in Spring 2021 through Arts & Crafts.

Philadelphia singer-songwriter and instrumentalist Saleka returns with a dark love story called “Mr. Incredible,” the sultry and soulful follow-up to her critically adored debut single, “Clarity.”

“Mr. Incredible” cleverly subverts the Disney character of the same name (and his tagline: “I work alone”) in a story about isolation and the coldness that comes from the fractures silence can cause. With an evocative and emotional video directed by her sister, Ishana Night Shyamalan, Saleka’s “Mr. Incredible” tells the story of a couple whose love is stifled by their inability to communicate.

Declan McKenna unveils the video for “Rapture,” off his recently released and critically acclaimed second album, Zeros. The video, directed by Jocelyn Anquitil, sees Declan convening with the devil, amongst others, in a quintessentially British cul-de-sac. 

“Rapture – though it seems to touch on the current state of the world – was born early last year, and reflects some of my thoughts on the end of the world and the threats that humanity will face in the future, and on common fears for the future,” says McKenna.
