New Tunesday – November 6, 2018

In addition to all of the great variety of a cappella you can hear ’round the clock here at Acaville Radio, we’re going to bring you some bonus releases each Tuesday to make sure you’re finding all of the latest and greatest this talented community has to offer.

Here are our favorites this week:

Duwende

Here to save us from U.S. Election Day madness, the magical voices of Duwende are back with a cover of the Bee Gees’ “How Deep Is Your Love.” Just pour a glass of wine and put it on repeat as the polling results come in.

HALO

This game-changing Harmony, Inc. quartet had a pretty great week in Orlando – they finished 13th overall in the International Quartet Contest and also received service award at IC&C on behalf of Harmony, Inc. for their community work with Race and #RealTalk.  Here is their rendition of Fats Waller’s and Andy Razaf’s “Black and Blue” – arrangement by David Wright.

In honor of Halloween, Backtrack gave us the “The Sort-Of Ballad of Sweeney Todd” featuring an arrangement and guest appearance on bass by Evan Feist. Pretty amazing set provided by YouTube, too!

2018 AcaOpen Champions dropped their first music video this week and it brings back all the warm fuzzies that took over Carnegie Hall the night of their big win. Here is “My Favorite Things.’
