Music, at its core, is pure emotion. Whilst modern music theory can offer an understanding of how certain feelings are invoked, music has been a powerful and important form of expression, centuries before Pythagorus even suggested the science of scales. As a creative outlet, writing a song or piece of music can provide a medium in which to document one’s thoughts, providing cathartic and therapeutic relief to an emotionally overwhelmed brain.

This week’s track is one such outpouring of love, from Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay to his daughter, with the eponymous track ‘Carla’ from the band’s 2017 album ‘Automation’. The final track on the album sees Kay candidly open up about the massive positive effects experienced from fatherhood.

This is still a Jamiroquai track though, proving that heartfelt love-songs aren’t necessarily restricted to just ballads; there’s more than enough room for a classic Jamiroquai funky bass line too.

As mentioned in the video, this track was a suggestion from the community, thank you to everyone who has got in touch with ideas for future episodes - feel free to keep them coming! This is also a testament to the benefits of sharing and discovering new music; it’s a great feeling when you see someone enjoy an album as much as you do. As a team we’ve also had a fair few ‘I can’t believe you’ve never heard of this album!’ moments.

Well, not quite everything, you still need to sound good, but for the Instagram generation, it's arguably just as important. It adds to the overall experience, and some artists even go so far as to create a whole narrative that surrounds everything they do, the futuristic robots of Daft Punk are probably the most famous example in house music.The artist behind this week's featured track was more flamboyant than futuristic, 'Azari & III' spent just five years together after first meeting at a Karaoke bar in their native Canada, in 2008.Today we're looking at their 2011 single 'Manic' which was released alongside the only studio album the band recorded together, before going their separate ways in 2013. Confirmation of the split was delivered in a suitably theatrical Facebook post by Alphonse Alixander Lanza III:‘Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, the art project known as AZARI & III has done its work, run its course and is, for all intents and purposes, a momentary blip in time, now forever imprinted on the Universe.
