@kleptones back again after traditional Glastonbury hoo-ha with @nessiest and @emmaprice - as usual much fun and unsanitary insanity in the fields, too many highlights to mention but as usual wishing I could clone myself a hundredfold to take it all in - there's just waay too much to do... I know, first world problem deluxe.
As is traditional, I threw out all the entries I had in the hopper, judging them too angsty/shouty/proggy for the lush and gorgeous summer we're having here in Vancouver.
Instead, here is a band I only first heard about a week ago. It's a disc from an anthology (!), with the songs dating mainly from the mid 1970s. The tracks run from booty-shaking R&B to salsa to balladeering in a way that, to me, has a real New York City feel. This is music for sun and hot pavement and drinks on the fire escape and sweaty dancing. Get something cold to drink and enjoy."
Righty ho! Direct download is here, and if we're feeling lucky, the mixcloud might well still be here...
Hope to see you at 8pm BST (GMT+1)
