Another joyous selection for you. I used to treasure my albums and CDs – now I am still fond of music I used to listen to a lot, but I’m even happier listening to music that’s new to me – and there’s a great selection here. Thanks to all contributors, and please keep the worms coming to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disperse – Dancing With Endless Love – AliM: Another gem from Spotify. Disperse are a Polish band who, according to Bandcamp, “… balance amazing technical skill with elegance as they inject their own style into a modern take on intelligent, progressive metal and rock.” Sounds good to me.
Kutle Khan and Kavita Seth – Khari Khari – Ravi Raman: Here’s an Amit Trivedi composition, combining Punjabi folk and some Indian R&B! Kutle Khan of Rajasthan Roots and well-known Indie singer Kavita Seth join hands in this Amit Trivedi composition. Amit is known for composing rustic leaning songs.
Ann Mortifee – One Man Sally Ann – tincanman: Would love to report she is a Canadian treasure, but …
Henry Priestman – Grey’s The New Blonde – tfd: Henry used to be in a band called the Christians, which comprised three brothers whose surname is Christian and him – and his middle name is Christian! How often does that happen? Anyway, I’m friendly with a local band called Kobold who are fans of Henry and do several songs of his, including this one. (Which is, OK, a bit trite and soppy…but it strikes a chord, that’s all I’ll say.) So they set up a gig for him in Stony Stratford recently and told me I had to come along and see Henry because he’s very good, so I did and he was.
Billy Bragg and the Blokes – Billericay Dicky – severin: From the Brand New Boots and Panties album of cover versions. Could have picked almost anything from it but this is a bit of a gem. Billy had fun with this one.
Cassandra Wilson – Death Letter – goneforeign: This was written in the ’30’s by Son House and was a part of his ’60’s blues revival repertoire. It has been covered by many artists as Death Letter Blues, here’s a version by Cassandra Wilson.
