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.
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.
A very happy new year indeed, with the release of “Disney Medley II” from this soulful Richmond, VA trio.
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.
Leaders of the a cappella movement in Ireland, Ardú uses a little looping to present their version of the popular Muse song, “Madness” live in concert.
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:
A Cappella Academy – Syncop8tion
Another week, another dazzling performance from the campers at A Cappella Academy, this time from the group led by Groove For Thought’s Amanda Taylor and Diane Galeano of Blacklight and Sound Off. Stunning delivery of a difficult jazz chart written by Taylor and a stellar solo from Emily Dietz.
Toronto’s ecletic pop octet put together this live cover of Ariana Grande’s “Focus.”
This year’s Harmony Sweepstakes finalists out of Minnesota covered Home Free’s mashup of Fishin’ in the Dark/Boondocks.
Top Filipino pop quintet drops a little Latin flair with their short cover of “Mas Que Nada.”
The Lost Keys
A little taste of their cover of “Latch” which is now in rotation on Acaville!
This German quintet had a lot of fun with Jonas Blue’s “Rise.”
