This week’s update to the Good Singing Gum mix on Spotify brings the total number of songs to 30 and features some unexpected sounds.
Dog-lovers rejoice as Black Sheep bring the bounce on Similak Child, then reggae legend Burning Spear gives an amazing vocal performance on Door Peep. Bobbie Gentry gets her hair yanked on the bizarre country Reunion and then Dick Hyman takes us to the moon with Space Reflex. Moving away from weird sounds, Gary Stewart with Riley spends a long night Drinkin’ Them Squeezins before Jorge Ben calls us on O Telefone Tocou Novamente (“The Phone Rang Again”). Things get real mellow with Knxwledge and Anderson .Paak on NxWorries’ Best One (Remix), then a capella group Take 6 dazzles with I’m On My Way. Wrapping up, Thelonious Monk (with the help of one John Coltrane) performs a transcendent tribute to his wife on Crepescule With Nellie, and then N.O.R.E. leaves us with the most optimistic sentiment of all: I Love My Life.
As always, check out the playlist here.
