Forgotten Treasure: Doug Randle “Songs For the New Industrial State” (1970)

For anyone out there who’s feeling the the cold-weather blues, the global-issues blues, the “how-did-I-already-break-my-New-Years-resolution?” blues or any other form of despondency, here is something that will hopefully produce (at the very least) a quick, distracting and delightful daydream. Warm In The Sunshine is a radiantly optimistic psych-pop tune by …

Future Classic: Swarvy “Scotch”

Suggestion to young producers of the “beats” variety (if that’s what we’re still calling it): focus on making original, ambitious music of your own instead of fighting for likes and plays with productions/remixes/edits that sound like copies of copies.

Forgotten Treasure: The Visitors “Rebirth” (1974)

If I could only keep 100 records, this would be in my “desert island” stack.. Lovely record from brothers Earl & Carl Grubbs who formed “The Visitors” in the early 1970s. One that brings together a strong Coltrane-ish approach filled with so much soul and spirit. Earl plays soprano tenor …

Future Classic: Azakel “New Romance” & “Chronophobia”

I discovered Azekel, an up and coming East London-based artist, a few months ago with his song called “New Romance” and the hypnotic music video that accompanied it. I pretty much instantly fell in love with his sound, a nice blend of R&B pop with crisp beats, heavy bass and …
