As March rolls in and Summer comes to a close, we're taking a look into some of our favourite tracks and albums over the past month. Welcome to This Month in Music. There were no surprises at the plethora of mega-pop acts releasing singles ahead of the upcoming Summer in the US, however there were a couple of breaking artists (mostly Aussies) who gained all of our attention this month. Check out our monthly music wrap below:\r\n\r\n\r\nYou'll also like:\r\nThis Month In Music \u2013 February 2017\r\nThis Month In Music \u2013 January\u00a02017\r\nThis Month In Music \u2013 December\u00a02017\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/open.spotify.com\/track\/7f5GxR7Mr2hqMBBOjSAN0l\r\nVera Blue - Private\r\nA little over a year ago there we few that had heard of the Aussie songstress Vera Blue. Now 12 months down the track, an EP down and collaborations with Illy, Slumberjack and Flume in the bag, she has easily become one of Australia\u2019s most talented and in demand vocalists. \u2018Private\u2019 is the first single from her upcoming record, which sees her switch her style up a bit with soaring vocals over epic electronic productions. \u2018Private\u2019 combines fire and delicate finesse to show off this amazing talents\u2019 range.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=9ob8BxADozM\r\nBusy P \u2013 Genie (feat. Mayer Hawthorne)\r\nIconic producer, label boss and former Daft Punk manager Busy P has returned with a French electronic jam featuring the vocals of Mayer Hawthorne. Busy P doesn\u2019t release music often, so when he does, you know it\u2019s going to be good. Combining soulful vocals over a steady and thoroughly enjoyable production, Busy P has delivered an Instant favourite.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/open.spotify.com\/track\/6gpcs5eMhJwax4mIfKDYQk\r\nCalvin Harris feat. Frank Ocean & Migos \u2013 Slide\r\nWe know you\u2019ve probably already heard this 10 times over, but we couldn\u2019t go without mentioning one of the biggest collaborations of the year. Best thing about it\u2026it\u2019s actually a great song. Calvin Harris delivers \u2018feel great music\u2019 acquiring the un-acquirable in Frank Ocean and the flavour of the year, Migos \u2013 both doing incredible justice to the track. You\u2019ll be hearing this around the place for the next 12 months.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/open.spotify.com\/track\/2xNx02PjBaRN7Q2oJnd1XQ\r\nThundercat \u2013 Friend Zone\r\nYou may haven\u2019t heard the name Thundercat before, however the LA bassist has worked with some of the world biggest stars for years, playing a hand in records from Mac Miller, Erykah Badu, Childish Gambino, Vic Mensa, Flying Lotus and more notably Kendrick Lamar\u2019 on his \u2018To Pimp A Butterfly\u2019 album. \u2018Friend Zone\u2019 is a clear fan favourite from the latest album sheerly because of its comedic lyrical storyline over one of the funkiest basslines that you\u2019ve ever heard.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/open.spotify.com\/track\/5xmQGsHJjav8c7z3oLlU9w\r\nBrayton Bowman \u2013 What\u2019s Really Good\r\nAmerica Singer Songwriter Brayton Bowman, who is a destined hit-maker, has put out a sophisticated pop EP featuring the catchy earworm \u2018What\u2019s Really Good? There is a distinctly noticeable British influence in the track, made possible from the co-production of UK Singer\/Songwriter MNEK. Brayton Bowman is an artist on the move in 2017, and \u2018What Really Good?\u2019 only confirms that. Keep an eye on this guy.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/open.spotify.com\/track\/0tDLcm4PaXUsqJRAkG8MYY\r\nWinston Surfshirt - Be About You\r\nOkay, these guys are going to do big thing this year. No strangers to the northern beaches of Sydney, Winston Surfshirt have been doing the rounds there for some time. Like Tame Impala the project is lead by solo artist Winston Surfshirt, who teams up with his band on the live front. \u2018Be About You\u2019 is their debut single which instantly gained the worlds attention due to its abundance of casually cool and soothing sounds.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/open.spotify.com\/track\/5iE1kLZ5WkcNYsVvaarrOT\r\nDJ Premier & Miguel \u2013 2 Lovin U\r\nWho would have thought that the unusual and unexpected collaboration of turntable legend DJ Premier and soul-RnB artist Miguel would work so well?\r\n\r\n\u20182 Lovin\u2019 U\u2019 features the casually smooth vocals of Miguel over a clean drum beat and what has been described as \u2018a funky, bass-led sex banger\u2019 by The Guardian. The track is over 2 years in the making, and these guys surely delivered the goods on this one.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/open.spotify.com\/track\/3XdLSZi8oRaFRjXug40Mdr\r\nMookhi \u2013 Foul Play feat. Billy Fox\r\nMoohki has quickly become one of Australia\u2019s most loved female discoveries. After being spotted on Triple J Unearthed, it has been onwards and upwards for the 22-year old. \u2018Foul Play\u2019 has already gained thousands of plays online with the raw vocals of Billy Fox over a clean, intrinsic and progressive beat.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/open.spotify.com\/track\/5g8CUSqonc6mukd4xntKTb\r\nMoonbase ft Anderson Paak \u2013 It Don\u2019t Matter\r\nThis is quite possibly the collaboration of a lifetime for Aussie bass act Moonbase. He\u2019s teamed up with one of the most hyped artists in the world right now, America Rapper Anderson Paak (who we talk about almost every month). The result is a thumping rap\/bass track of epic proportions.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/open.spotify.com\/album\/2dEkjiUBO6Z2aeolcJ7sCy\r\nAlbum of the Month \u2013 Oddisee \u2013 The Iceberg\r\nD.C Rapper and Producer Oddisee follows up on his 2016 instrumental album with \u2018The Iceberg\u2019, a 12-track offering that sees Oddisee return to the microphone with some words in stow. Delivering a message of love, fear, equality and happiness during a tough political time in the US, the album offers a range of moods over different tempos of hip-hop and funk. What separates this rapper from the rest is his elegant and clean production style, as well as his originality. This guy doesn\u2019t follow the rap pack and that\u2019s why his album is our pick of the month.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
