Some brilliant music for you this October morning. If you have an earworm that you would like to share, please send an .mp3 or a link to firstname.lastname@example.org, together with a few lines about why you’ve chosen it. Many thanks to all contributors. (NB: I forgot to box the worms last week, so I’ve added them to this week’s).
Mr. Jukes – Leap Of Faith ft. De La Soul, Horace Andy – CaroleBristol: This track has been one of my favourite things for a while now. It is by Mr Jukes, about whom I know nothing and features De La Soul and Horace Andy. I think that it is the mad drumming, plus the dub-style effects on Horace Andy’s singing that have really made it burrow into my brain.
Ali Hamza, Ali Sethi, Waqar Ehsin – Tinak Dhin – Ravi Raman: out of Pakistan. A song about the rhythms of life. The title being an equivalent of Boom, Boom I suppose.
Aldous Harding – Swell Does The Skull (w Perfume Genius) – tincanman: There’s something about the young New Zealander’s tone of voice that seems to dare you not to listen to every line right through ’til the very end. I don’t know what happens if you don’t, but why find out?
P!NK – What About Us – AliM: It’s virtually impossible to follow Aldous Harding, but here is a song with another strong female vocal, which I hear everywhere at the moment, and which is a true earworm.
