New Tunesday – January 8, 2019

New year, new tunes! As we’re all stepping out of the holiday daze, here are a few of our favorite recent releases in the aca-verse.

MICappella

International superstars out of Singapore quietly dropped a bombshell with 《王妃》- Jam 萧敬腾 over the holidays with an arrangement from Tat Tong and production by an all-star team of Peter Huang, Tat Tong, Plaid Productions, and Dave Sperandio.

RESOUND

A very happy new year indeed, with the release of “Disney Medley II” from this soulful Richmond, VA trio.

Due North

2018 National Harmony Sweepstakes Finalists, Due North, kicked off the new year with a fully produced music video of their cover of “Lost on You.” This relatively new group out of the Twin Cities is pushing hard and we suspect that this is only the beginning.

Drums of War

Australian hip hop a cappella at its finest, 2015 AUSACA Champions, Drums of War, cover Talib Kweli.

DocAcappella

Marc Silverberg is officially the Weird Al of a cappella and we can’t get enough. His latest release, “ICCA” comes just ahead of the start of the 2019 season and it’s hilariously spot-on.

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:

Face

Colorado’s favorite rock vocal band outdid themselves with this cover of Seal’s “Kiss From a Rose” with an arrangement and solo by Ryan Driver.

Drums of War

Australia’s Hip Hop and R&B a cappella band put their vocals to good use to promote mental health and suicide prevention. The group is raising funds to support beyondblue and you can support them in their Tough Mudder Half.

Ember

The 2018 Aca-Open Finalists released the studio version of their opening track “Bad Romantic” which was written, edited, mixed, and mastered by group member Hansel Romero and produced by Romero and Lisa McNulty with a solo by Lauren Redditt.
