Mariel’s Picks:

Silk sonic 1

ARTIST: Silk Sonic

ALBUM TITLE: An Evening With Silk Sonic

Silk Sonic is the collaboration between two of music’s biggest personalities: Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak. Their first album as Silk Sonic is a love letter to 70s and 80s soul that avoids being simple pastiche due to just how good it is. You don’t want to miss this one.
