CHOON OF THE DAY: "LICK IN HEAVEN" - Jessy Lanza + Top 20 Greatest Jessy Lanza Tracks

Jessy Lanza has been setting the perfect tone for the arrival of her most anticipated 3rd solo album these past few months. While putting the finishing touches to LP3, she has treated us to that terrific rendition of HOMESHAKE's "Like Mariah", the instantly anthemic "Stop & Go" under the alias of The Galleria (with Morgan Geist) and finally to "Bobby" that highly sought-after Hyperdub-anniversary special with James Greenspan of the Junior Boys. Talk about turning up the heat in the Lanza department big time. With the premiere of Jessy Lanza's brand new solo single the delectable "Lick In Heaven", I am re-visiting this Canadian artist's entire catalogue all over again, cherry-picking my personal favourites.

Check out Jessy Lanza's upcoming tour dates via her Facebook page, the one performance I am particularly excited is her 13th March gig at Lost Lane in Dublin. It'll be my 4th time seeing her live. Bring it on!

 Sink Ya Teeth, our favourite disco punk revivalists are back with an infectious electro stomper "Somewhere Else" throbbing with beats, synths and melody hooks which instantly get under your skin. I have been a devoted admirer of this talented Norwich duo ever since I heard their hypnotic debut single "If You See Me" back in 2017. The new single announces the release of their highly anticipated 2nd LP "Two" which drops next week! The video for "Somewhere Else" was directed by Joseph Hayes and the track is trending super high for my upcoming monthly Crème de la Shrem ranking. On repeat!
