Three on a Thursday #38


Right in a rush today, so no witty little intro covering my  mood, current affairs, or even passing the time of day.

POW!

Tunes!

Right in the kisser!

I was having one of my ‘slightly uninspired’ weeks this week and was scratching around for tracks I liked enough to feature in this weeks selection, when lo and behold an email from the Keep Up! records boys dropped into my inbox – huzzah!

Imagine my horror when it contained Problems, then my delight when they were of the “slightly garage-y wonky bassy” variety from an upcoming release by LPZ (better known previously as The Paraguayan Vintage Synth King, Lopez), rather than in the “you’re broke/banned from yet another country/going to jail for interfering with animals” usual sense.

This drops on the 14th November from the usual places.

Every once in a while I like to hit you up with a oldie as part of Three on a Thursday, and this is most definitely one of those times.

I’ve recently read the rather wonderful history of Jamaican music, Bass Culture by Lloyd Bradley which gives an in-depth view of the islands music and was inspired to collate all of the tracks mentioned by name in the book into a Spotify playlist so I could listen to all the tracks I didn’t know. Bloodshot Eyes is full on Rhythm & Blues ode to wayward women by Wynonie Harris and is one of the first mentioned in the book. It’s fantastic. Give it a listen below.

It wouldn’t be a Three on a Thursday without some beats, and this week they come courtesy of Zenit Incompatible, and laced with a sprinking of soul and a dusting of hip-hop. After Laughter, I’ll Take You There takes a quality girl group sample from Wendy Rene, a nifty little breakbeat from Gramatik, and some cracking flow from Pete Rock & CL Smooth and blends it into this beaut.
