Jayson here with my DJ pick of the week from Houndmouth alum Katie Toupin and her solo debut Moroccan Ballroom.
After years on the road with Houndmouth and a brief hiatus while getting settled in Los Angeles, Toupin returned to writing. Moroccan Ballroom, her self-released EP, is entirely live, recorded during a session at the Village Studios to film some of her newly-written songs. She was so in love with the outcome of the session that she decided to release the tracks. The result was a totally authentic expression of Toupin, with no overdubs or editing.
Hear this authenticity in the single “Shake Baby” below and let us know what you think!
