Sounds of the summer

Super busy and every time I think of doing something to put up here (new mix, new chart, new blather) I don’t have enough time, so I figure lets just roll out some individual tunes I like from time to time and see how we go.
Recently been digging Fast Moving Cars forthcoming on Blackest Ever Black. Digging the dubwise production and detached delivery, bonus video of Carla(?) going swimming presumably somewhere in Australia – there might be crocs in that water.

‘Fast Moving Cars’: the debut solo single from Carla …

31 years after my obsession with this mans music started someone books him to do shows here… about twenty years too late for me I think… or is it?
I own five albums in the Foetus catalogue plus other projects he did, notably Wiseblood plus a bunch of 12″s and EPs… it would seem my middle age crisis moment to see a supergroup has arrived.

fly

I’ve had to do a bit of flying this week and Air New Zealand use this song for just about every single piece of incidental music on their flights… its a super wicked song and sure worked a treat but FFS its stuck in me head now… and its really annoying, a great song slowly driving me insane and rendering itself redundant
In short – be careful out their kids… music can destroy your soul

so its another sorta group pick but if you have isssue with that you pick just one song from
Moodymann!
I’m going with
Shades of Jae

BUT i truly love dozens of songs by Kenny Dixon jr
like J.A.N.

or the Live in LA version, i had a musical moment upstairs at Inmusic with Bob and Mark Nola when they played the test cd for me up there.
or tribute

But anyway, back to Shades of Jae.
this track is just divine, it doesn’t give you everything, it demands you to pay attention, the kick drum comes and goes …

This song reminds me of when I used to live in the Italian countryside right after I graduated from primary school, sixteenth from the top in my class of eighteen (fuck yeah).
I didn’t have a penny to my name, kinda ironic given my name isn’t penny… and i was living in a tiny little room above a jazz cafe where I would work for my rent by banging on the floor and yelling for them jazzbo’s to shut the fuck up!
I had not a care in the world just living …
