Rather than go out and buy the releases that “they” tell you get, here’s an artist who’s 3rd album Drops today. Ayo, Nigerian-German artist who’s recording name is the Yoruba translation of her first name Joy, releases Billie-Eve. Her previous albums Joyful, and Gravity At Last are worth checking out also. The album also includes a cover of the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back,” the second single. Enjoy some real music.

The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
