This week, I am ‘Spillin’ The Beans on a new album by Beta Days called S.T.T. (which means Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday – an acronym for the days of the week on which the album was recorded).
More eclectic sounds to brighten your Monday. If you have an earworm you’d like to share, please send an .mp3 or link to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a few words about why you’ve chosen it, and I’ll do the rest. Many thanks to all contributors.
Four Tet – Two Thousand and Seventeen – CaroleBristol: I first heard this on BBC 6Music without knowing who it was by. I found it a mysterious and enchanting piece of music, with the (I think) cimbalom, a kind of hammered dulcimer, providing a wonderful atmospheric sense that just got under my skin, making me think of mysterious Balkan cities in the days of the Ottoman Empire. It was only later that I found out that it is a new track by Four Tet and that it is called Two Thousand and Seventeen. I think that it is really rather wonderful.
Beth Hart – St Teresa – Ravi Raman: Saw her live just this April and this song was part of her set. Great show but I somehow like this version.
K.Flay – Blood In The Cut – tincanman: This reminds me so much of Prince and all the genres he smashed together.
ZZ Top – Brown Sugar – DsD: Looking for something else, I came across ZZ Top’s 2016 Glastonbury set again. Oh dear! Is it just me, or was that tedious and lifeless in the extreme? [DsD sadly crosses them off his gig bucket list.] As an antidote, turn this up, clear a floor space, and let’s boogie like it’s 1971!
Monkey Warhol – Stolen Moments – AliM: Earwormy track from his just released EP (EP5).
