Well then, this little section of the globe seems to have seriously got stuck in a "Season Not Found" issue, has it not? Whither spring? Where's the little green buds? Small furry animals poking their little heads out of slumberland? Not a one. Here in the Dam there's a little more sun and light than usual, but apart from that there's nothing to persuade me to take the thermals off. Am I going on about this a bit much? Probably, but hell, there's frolicking to be done, and frolicking cannot be done in a big coat, scarf, hat and gloves, unless they're big enough to accommodate two. Hem hem.
Speaking of accommodating, don't forget NEXT SUNDAY we here at #listeningclub will be accommodating your non-English selections for the inaugural EASTER VORTEX - all of you please pick one tune in any language apart from English - email or DM me your choices as soon as you can please! (Also don't forget there's clock malarkey going on next weekend also, so we'll be moving to 8pm BST. BST? Hah! See first paragraph...)
Last Sunday, @jimmccaulley was in the hot seat, and supplied us with a serious dose of psychedelic mockney-hop in the form of Aleister X's "Half-Speed Mastered", which truly boggled the assembled heads. Many thanks to Jim for the trip, and for thrusting the #lc frisbee over to @akx for this week's selection. And over to Aarni for the preamble...
"This choice was a little bit harder than the last one... mainly because my first choice would've been more jazz. Less deathly jazz than before, but anyway.
So, seeing as it'll eventually, slowly start being summer again (even though it's still snow and slush and ice everywhere here), I thought hey, let's play an album that was my soundtrack for a summer a couple years ago. So here goes!
Oh, and the first track features a sample that became a favorite quote of mine. You'll probably notice it."
Righty-ho. Download is here (direct link), or the Mixcloud stream here!
