Music News: Ruby Amanfu, Milktooth, Cherub, and k.s. Rhoads

It's only Tuesday and this week is already full of new stuff to check out. There's a lot to hear, so we've condensed it all into a quick and clickable blog post for easy consumption:

Ruby Amanfu has teamed up with Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard to create a painfully beautiful cover of Memphis Minnie's "When My Man Comes Home." Recorded to add to the Third Man Records Blue Series arsenal, this song as well as a cover of "I Wonder," originally by Rodriguez, will be available on vinyl March 12th. In the meantime, the song is available to stream (on repeat) over on the Entertainment Weekly website.

For some reason, electro-pop duo Cherub are giving their fantastic 100 Bottles EP away for free. Featuring six tracks of experimental neo-soul, this EP does not miss a beat. Catch the debut and stream over on This Song Is Sick or buy the EP on iTunes.

Currently getting the new album release treatment is known solo artist and renown local collaborator, k.s. Rhoads. Available today, The Wilderness will celebrate its release alongside a myriad of local talent on March 8th at 3rd & Lindsley. Until then, stream the album on Spotify or on Spinner.

Lastly, Milktooth have released the fifth episode of their ongoing "Stay At Home America" covers series. This time, the band tackles "Eyes That Say I Love You," from Beck's Song Reader. The song and video feature tons of local talent, such as Alanna Quinn-Broadus of Alanna Royale, Daniel Ellsworth of Daniel Ellsworth & the Great Lakes, Lindsay Johns of NUDITY, Regan Freeman, and Levi Weaver.
