?uestlove's New Native Tongues Candidates

Hey, do you remember that ?uestlove interview made popular by Clyde, O-dub, Joey, Spine Magazine, Okayplayer, Dork Magazine, and our good friends in Germany (who're now soliciting a reprint copy)? Well, one of the topics that came up during that conversation was the idea of a new Native Tongues movement. Let's take a look at the three artists ?uestlove describes as the new Native Tongues. Get familiar.

1. Georgia Ann Muldrow
Label: Stones Throw
Official Website
Georgia Ann Muldrow's MySpace Page
De La Soul of the trio?
As an artist, Georgia is multi-faceted, swiftly combining brilliant musicianship with singing duties. Problem is, her crooning takes a back seat to her musicianship. Besides, I'm yet to hear anything from her that makes you wanna get up and groove. Isn't that a priority these days?


2. J*Davey
Label: Unsigned
Official Website
J*Davey's MySpace Page
My second favorite out of the group. Jack Davey and Brook D'Leau complement each other beautifully. Their mix of electro-funk-soul and hip-hop yields a winning combination. Look for J*Davey on The Roots' Game Theory album. The new ATCQ?


3. Sa-Ra:
Label: Getting Out Our Dreams (G.O.O.D.)
Official Website
Sarah's MySpace Page
Watch their Promo Video
Backed by Kanye's G.O.O.D. music imprint, and dubbed the new Jungle Brothers by ?uestlove. My thoughts on Sa-Ra Creative Partners here
