Earworms is restored, if slightly late – thanks to all who deleted files, particularly Blimpy, who has given us more space (the final front-ear?) Unfortunately WordPress will no longer allow me to upload .mp3s for some reason, so here is a link to this week’s thoughtful selection: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/mhicn3mujzggw7w/AABhD-Yw9AzhQf4UpGu4yR3Ra?dl=0
Thanks to all contributors and please keep the worms coming to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Otis Taylor – 3 Days And 3 Nights – tincanman: My little girl, she`s slipping away. Jesus will hold your hand. Doctor wouldn`t even let us in. I went home to my cardboard box. Laid my little girl down. Heaven will let us in.
Anouar Brahem – Parfum de Gitane – goneforeign: We had a piece by this Tunisian jazz trio a few years ago, time for another taste. It’s from the album Astrakan Cafe recorded by Manfred Eicher for the ECM label. The instrumentation is oud clarinet and percussion.
Andrew Bird – Far From Any Road (Be My Hand) – glasshalfempty: Andrew Bird had a great album out this year. Some of it is a bit macabre, like this song of the desert.
Ram Sampath; Aruna Sairam; Sona Mohapatra – Aigiri – Ravi Raman: Aruna Sairam is a noted Carnatic singer and this song is a famous prayer sung all around S. India in Durga temples. Ram Sampath has added a rock element to it along with a Hindi love song to create his version of Temple rock.
This Other Kingdom – Sunlight – bethnoir: A Dublin band I stumbled across whilst listening to some prog/psychedelic music, it may not be new but I love their take on it.
John Martyn – Rollin’ Home – AliM: Having rolled home a few times recently, this has been buzzing around in my head. I love it.
