STYLE+MUSIC: Videos from J*Davey and Mushinah + Little Dragon's new album. The girls are doing it!

It's safe to say there is no shortage of musical talent right now. I'm constantly impressed and excited by some of my favorite artists' fearless desire to push beyond expectation. And I'm equally excited by the new-to-me artists I discover on a daily basis. I mean, really, we are in a great place right now and I'm so glad I'm part of this generation.

Specifically, the ladies are really doing their thing right now!!

Check out the latest video from J*Davey for their song Mama's Back. This LA duo, lead vocally by Miss Jack Davey and instrumentally by Brooke D'Leau, make me proud of my Los Angeles roots. They are just one example of our glowing creativity in fashion, music and beyond.

If you like this then you have to listen to their last double disc Beauty in Distortion/Land of the Lost. If you don't like it then listen to it anyway and be sure to support J*Davey in the I want my music on MTV contest.

Next up is someone I can literally listen to all day. Muhsinah is an ultra-talented singer/song-writer/producer/classically trained pianist/the list goes on and on. Her voice and beats are entrancing and beautiful and I'm so proud of her success. Check out this her latest video with The Foreign Exchange for their collaboration, The House of Cards.

Last but definitely not least is my excitement over Little Dragon and their beautiful new album Machine Dreams. I'm a recent Little Dragon fan but it's like they've been in my collection for years. The lead singer, Swedish-Japanese Yukimi Nagano, has a voice so sultry she provides the listener with a kind of modern-day electro-soul experience we all need. If you're not a fan yet, also check out their self-titled first album Little Dragon on Itunes. This is the one that really hooked me.
