Moving on the Wires: Black Weblog Awards, Andy Allo, P.OS., Tunde Olaniran…

*Voting for semifinalists begins today for the Black Weblog Awards and ends October 1. Please vote for my blog in the Best New Blog category here!

*Update: On November 20th, Andy Allo will be releasing her new album Superconductor, which was executive produced by Prince and features a few songs written by him, including the title track. Allo describes it in an interview as a bit of “old school, funk, and a lot of soul.” “The first single, People Pleaser, featuring Maceo Parker and Trombone Shorty is almost confrontational it’s so funky,” she said.

*P.O.S. from Doomtree is releasing a new album, We Don’t Even Live Here, in October. He recently released the video for the explosive single, “Fuck Your Stuff” (watch below). You can pre-order the MP3, CD (with a 52-page booklet), vinyl and t-shirt here.

*Listen to Tunde Olaniran’s latest single “Brown Boy,” which will be on his upcoming album, The Second Transgression. If you haven’t already, read my interview with Olaniran about his style while you nod your head to the song.
