Howdy folks. After an eventful week in America I can finally relax a little bit. Of course, I can’t relax too much, because that would mean not updating my site every week. And like Obama said after sinking a 3 the other week, “That’s what I do!”
Things get started with Zlatan’s Wake Up, then Philly singer Barbara Mason’s biggest hit, Yes I’m Ready. Next, a cut from Blu’s underrated NoYork! project with an incredible game-show referencing guest verse in Annie Hall. Reggae legend Alton Ellis covers Procol Harum’s Whiter Shade of Pale and Massive Attack mash up the sound with Five Man Army. Then Cocteau Twins amazing b-side Ice-Pulse (which I discovered via Jonathan Caoutte’s Tarnation), followed by Del’s goofy Sleepin on My Couch. A gem amongst many 2010s Migos tracks, Zaytoven and Quavo’s Stars in the Ceiling is next, followed by Sarah Vaughan’s classic Lullaby of Birdland. Rounding things out this week is a great one from the major dudes Steely Dan, Katy Lied‘s Your Gold Teeth II.
As always, check out the playlist on Spotify.
