With the sweetest of sounds coming from the speakers of the Ticket Arena office it would be mighty selfish of us to keep them to ourselves, so we thought we’d let you in on what our staff use to soundtrack a hard day’s work. Now a weekly feature with the intent of bringing your attention to wonderful new sounds every Monday, our Album Of The Week looks at releases from the best in the game, whether fresh new acts about to hit the big time or established artists reminding the world of their continued talent. Simply put, it’s just the best in music that we think you should hear.
Better known as a suffix to the incredible Anderson .Paak as his touring band, the Free Nationals are here to showcase their own individual sound - with the aid of some high calibre names, with Anderson .Paak himself, The Internet’s Syd, Daniel Caesar, T.I., Kali Uchis, the late, great Mac Miller and more all making features on their debut record. Blending nostalgic elements of hip hop, RnB and funk with a palette perfect for the current generation, Free Nationals manage to pay homage to the gods of these genres - such as George Clinton, B.B. King, Stevie Wonder, Al Green - while maintaining a contemporary air that keeps the collective current and worthy of not only your attention, but your dance moves…
The Free Nationals join Anderson .Paak at the next edition of Lovebox Festival, taking place over three days in London’s Gunnersbury Park between Friday 12th and Sunday 14th June.
