Click to listen to Waters' 'For the One'

After Van Pierszalowski's band, Port O'Brien, broke up last year, Pierszalowski moved to Oslo craving space – but he ultimately embarked on a world journey that culminated in the creation of his new project, Waters. During his travels, Pierszalowski wrote very raw and thought-out songs, which he recorded with a band upon his return to Oslo. Pierszalowski describes Waters' first track, the low-fi and incredibly catchy "For the One," as his "favorite song I've ever written. Usually I would feel bad for the other songs in saying that, but not with this one." Pierszalowski explains to Rolling Stone that "For the One" "sums up all of 'Out in the Light' and everything I've gone through over the last couple years."

Waters' debut "Out in the Light" hits stores on September 20th, but you can download "For the One" for free here.

“Bizness”

Tune-Yards | 2011

The opening track to Merrill Garbus’ second album under the Tune-Yards banner (she also plays in the trio Sister Suvi), “Bizness” is a song about relationships that is as colorful as the face paint favored by Garbus both live and in her videos. Disjointed funk bass, skittering African beats, diced-and-sliced horns and Garbus’ dynamic voice, which ranges from playful coos to throat-shredding howls, make “Bizness” reminiscent of another creative medium. “I'd like for them not to be songs as much as quilts or collages or something,” Garbus said.
