More eclecticism for you on a Monday morning, hope it gets your day off to a good start. If you have an earworm you would like to share, please send an .mp3 or link to: firstname.lastname@example.org, together with a few lines about why you’ve chosen it. Many thanks to all contributors.
Susanne Sundfør – Undercover – severin: It’s supposed to be “earworms” so here I am, sending in what I hope will be the most “earwormy” track from Susanne Sundfor’s new album. The one that was released as a taster/single before the whole package. The album’s a bit of a change from her last two releases. Less electronic and, according to some, less instantly accessible. Although I have been playing it incessantly for the past three days since it arrived. Frankly, every track is an earworm for me right now. Even “Sounds of War”; the 7’ 49” track I first thought of sending.
Bruno Merz – Whisper Turn – AliM: Originally from New Zealand, Bruno currently lives in the UK. His popularity grew worldwide following the success of his 2014 debut album “Highways”, and single, “Emmeline”. In 2015, he also wrote a classical score for the Northern Ballet’s children’s production “Tortoise and the Hare”. This is the first rather lovely single from the album ‘Whisper Turn‘, which is due for release in early 2018.
Janiva Magness – Long As I Can See The Light – glassarfemptee: Janiva Magness is a leading light in the Americana scene, and here she belts out a song she wrote and released last year, which has a classic chooglin’ feel to it.
Ich & Ich – Vom selben Stern – abahachi: One of the odder aspects of listening to German radio a lot – for the traffic reports, for example – is discovering what they consider to be “classics from the 80s to today”; not just the eclectic mixture of, say, REM, Blondie, Visage, Girls Aloud and U2, but also the home-grown acts. This, from 2007, seemed to be on heavy rotation this summer.
Karrin Allyson – Everybody’s Boppin’ – Ravi Raman: – an impulse buy after hearing it in a playlist. Didn’t know anything about her or the backing band which impressed me the most. The album is “Footprints”.
