What: Record Store

This electronic & dance music record store has carefully curated collections, specializing in new and used house music, Baltimore club, ambient, synth-wave/darkwave, industrial/EBM, 80’s r&b, and so much more like rare and classic hip hop. This store is very small and more so like a boutique, but this makes it unique. If you’re looking for very specific dance music, I would check this place out first. The store also sells ceramics, books, t-shirts & more fun knick-knacks.

Binod and Shrijana, the owners of the local restaurant Namaste, vow to provide all their customers with the best Indian food experience in Baltimore. Their meticulously crafted menu will draw you in immediately, and you will find something you’re eager to try. They even have a full-service bar with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Happy Hour is 3:30pm to 5:30 pm. Their menu offers dozens of authentic Indian/Nepali dishes, and there is something for everyone (even many vegetarian options like lentils and paneer!) Appetizers include soups, salads, and an assortment of veggies, and the main courses are centered around lamb, chicken, and seafood. All the dishes are grilled in their traditional Indian clay “tandoor” oven and then doused in flavorful curries prepared with only the freshest ingredients and traditional Indian herbs and spices.

Album of the Week: For All We Know by Nao

Friday, February 18th, 2022 by Ronnie Gruseck

For All We Know by Nao

Reviewed by: Isabelle Braudakis

Rate: 8/10 

RIYL: Sabrina ClaudioSZA, ENNY, Jamila Woods, Kiana Lede, Amber Mark, Justine Skye 

Neo Jessica Joshua, also known as Nao, is an English singer-songwriter and producer from East London. For All We Know is her debut album, released in 2016. Nao demonstrates how amazing genre-blending is by having a perfect balance of soul, funk, R&B, and electronic music and making it all work seamlessly. Not only is this album produced extremely well, but Nao’s vocals enchant you. Her voice is light, rich, mesmerizing, and sweet at the same time. Through this album, we accompany her as she examines some of her past relationships, friendships, and her relationship with herself as she notices changes within. Nao’s vocals weave themselves into a perfect ratio of harmony and lead. Since releasing this album she has worked with artists such as Disclosure and Abhi Dijon. Along with collaborative work, she has released two other albums that have had great success. I cannot wait to hear more from Nao! Make sure to check her out on all streaming platforms.

My recommendations from this album are “Bad Blood”, “Fool to Love”, and “Girlfriend”.
