With MARIS, Brussels vocalist Mariske Broeckmeyer creates blistering pop that is as much inspired by jazz and improvisation as by the atmospheric experiment of the Scandinavian scene. She presents her second album By Virtue of the Absurd (WERF Records).

Robin Kester: 'This Is Not A Democracy' (mini album)

While Robin Kester played indie folk on her EP Peel the Skin, with the mini album This Is Not A Democracy (AT EASE) it immediately becomes clear that her talent cannot be labeled just like that. The result is dreamy, luscious music inspired by 1970s pop and Sufjan Stevens' enigmatic lullabies, Cate Le Bon's indie pop, Beach House's dream pop and the mesmerizing beauty of Weyes Blood.

MARIS is a part of A JazzLab Tour
