More eclectic Earworms for you this week. The wormbank is getting low again, and so I have included two new releases, which were sent courtesy of Shauna McLarnon (email@example.com) – and very good they are, too. (Please note AMENDED CONTACT DETAILS above).
If anyone out there is new to Earworms, the concept is very simple – just send an .mp3 of something that has caught your ear recently, and that you’d like to share, to firstname.lastname@example.org. It doesn’t have to be new, in fact we don’t usually include new music here, that’s reserved for “Sounds on Sunday” or other individual posts. If you’re reading this on Hype Machine, these other posts aren’t currently being picked up, so take a scroll through our blog and see for yourself. Meanwhile, thanks to all contributors, and hope you enjoy the music.
Anthony Phillips – God If I Saw Her Now – AliM: Heard this on Spotify “Discover Weekly”, and wonder why I have never heard it before. Phillips was a co-founder of Genesis, but left in 1970. This is from his debut solo album “The Geese and the Ghost” (1977). Yes it’s whimsical, but rather beautiful.
The Funky Knuckles – Moorish – Ravi Raman: suggested by a friend. Full of wonderful bass lines and horns, this is one of many good tracks from their 2016 album New Birth.
Miles Davis – Flamenco Sketches – tincanman: Miles Davis gave his sextet sketches of scales and melody lines for the pieces on Kind of Blue and told them to improvise. It thus became a matter of legend that one of the best albums ever recorded, in any genre, was recorded front to back on the first take. This is false. Only one piece was: Flamenco Sketches.
Margie Day – Take Out Your False Teeth Daddy – severin: Doesn’t sound very hygienic to me. Still, I expect she knows best. From a compilation called Jumpin’ the Blues and ace. Hey it’s on the Ace record label. What were the chances …
Neville Staple – Return of Judge Roughneck: A catchy new release from “long-term ska royalty who blazed a bold path as a member of both THE SPECIALS (Two Tone Records) and FUN BOY THREE (Chrysalis Records) … His new double album ‘Return of Judge Roughneck’ is now available via Cleopatra Records. Please also enjoy a fun new video for the title track, filmed in Coventry and inspired by his one-time sentence to borstal (a youth detention center).” https://youtu.be/2UqRj3ekptA

Black Needle Noise – Swimming Through Dreams: Also a new release, “JOHN FRYER is known to many of those reading liner-notes and fans of THIS MORTAL COIL, of which he was one of only two permanent members along with Ivo Watts-Russell. But he’s often escaped the limelight over the past 3 1/2 decades of producing many bands on the early 4AD roster (including Cocteau Twins, The Wolfgang Press and Lush), as well as Depeche Mode, Yaz (Yazoo), Nine Inch Nails, Clan of Xymox, Nitzer Ebb, Love and Rockets, Xmal Deutschland, Fields of the Nephilim, De/Vision, Stabbing Westward, Swans, HIM, Cradle of Filth, and Jesus Jones. Today we introduce you to his latest single ‘Swimming Through Dreams’ under the name BLACK NEEDLE NOISE. This features MIMI PAGE of Delirium fame.” https://blackneedlenoise.bandcamp.com/track/swimming-through-dreams
