‘Spill points for inserting your sample text here – not literally, but give us a caption, or fit the picture to the song below. Easy peasy. Anyway, an eclectic mix for you this week, thanks to all contributors and please keep those worms coming to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bug, Roger Robinson & Paul St. Hilaire – Living Dub – shoegazer: From the dubtronica series…
Flying Lotus with Kendrick Lamar – Never Catch Me – carolebristol: This might not sound like my sort of thing, but I really like it a lot. Once again, it is getting a lot of play on BBC6Music. I love the bass, it reminds me a bit of “Brown Paper Bag”. Not sure I’d buy the album, but this is a lot of fun. It is by Flying Lotus with Kendrick Lamar (no, I’ve never heard of him, either) and it is called Never Catch Me.
??? – Marcin Wasilewski Trio – abahachi: This One’s For Darcey’s Dad - Well, of course that isn’t the real title, but if DsD hasn’t yet heard the brilliant new MWT album, here’s a chance to play ‘can you guess what it is yet?’ with the usual unexpected pop cover.
Nina Simone At Newport – In The Evening By The Moonlight – goneforeign: From 1960, possibly the first Nina LP I ever bought, There’s many wonderful cuts on this album, she was right at the start of her career and she quit her classical training to pay the rent; listen to the J.S. Bach influences throughout her wonderful piano solo.
Peter Blakeley – Crying in the Chapel: deanofromoz: No, not the Elvis song of the same name. Was checking out the CD’s for sale at a second hand shop and came across this one. I remember it as a catchy hit in Australia in the late 80’s/early 90’s, and thought I would give it a go. The album as a whole doesn’t really stack up, but I still really like this song. I know it might be a bit MOR for some tastes, but nothing wrong with that every now and then.
Gary Clark Jr – Bright Lights – tincanman: It’s big, it’s bold, and it’s nasty. It’s the blues.
