Many thanks to all contributors.
Charanjit Singh – Megh Malar/Todi – Ravi Raman: Everywhere I went last week I kept hearing this guy. Credited with the first acid house music here. So here’s something from his Ten Ragas To A Disco Beat album, considered a cult classic.
The Dhol Foundation – Buliyan Nu Reprise (Bolly Mixture) – AliM: This is a single from the new album Basant. I saw the Dhol Foundation live, a few days ago, and they are absolutely amazing, led by Johnny Kalsi they are energetic, charismatic and multi-talented. Double-ended dhol drums are a traditional instrument from the Punjab, in northern India. Go and see them if you get a chance, they are currently on tour but selling out fast.
Eilen Jewell – You know my love – glassarfemptee: From her latest album, Downhearted Blues, this track is finger pickin’ good. She played Bush Hall on 6 Nov ’17.
Drive-By Truckers – The Perilous Nigh – tincanman: Brand new anti-Trump anthem. Trump, Reagan, George W … the best presidents inspire the best music, don’t they?
T-Rex – Light of Love (The Reflex Revision) severin: From the new CD of T-Rex remixes. Hated by many Bolan fans if Amazon reviews are any guide. I really like it. This is one of his minor hits; the follow up to Teenage Dream and not a big chart hit although I liked it. Some of the mixes on the new album sound quite similar to the originals. Some instrumental versions you might not even recognise. This is somewhere in between, rather catchy and makes me wish I could dance.
