Some fantastic new music to delight your ears

First off, I logged on to Blogger this evening and saw that my blog now has over 20,000 page views!  Whuuut.  I still remember when 1,000 page views felt like a massive achievement.

So lately I've been coming across all sorts of fantastic new music - some witchy, some not - and I wanted to share the musical love.  So for your listening pleasure, here's a few of my favorites:

Sharron Kraus has a new album coming out soon called Friends and Enemies; Lovers and Strangers.  This album is based on the Mabinogion, and the song posted as a preview, "Blodeuwedd," is simply gorgeous.  Her voice reminds me a little of 70s folks singers like Joni Mitchell.  As a child of Rhiannon, I am super excited about this project (and so is Rhiannon)!

Ibeyi just released their debut, self-titled album, and from what I've heard so far, oh man, it is SO GOOD.  Some of their songs like "Oya" invoke the Orishas.

Chantilly released a new song called "Lovely" on her Tumblr.  It's got such a fun, jaunty disco beat.

And finally, take a listen to "Worker Bee" by Philadelphia blues-rock artist - and my old grade school classmate - Jason Ager.  That tuba!!  I went to school with some seriously talented people, ya'll.  (If you like the song you can download it for free from Philly Free Song Friday - click the down arrow button on the widget below).

What do you think of these songs?  Have any other new music (witchy or otherwise) that you'd recommend?  Let me know in the comments!
