OK it got fortnightly for a while, but we’re BACK baby!
First up this week is pretty much sets the mood this week and it’s a rework of the Part Time Heroes track Folded. This one is from the downtempo don, Frameworks, but in an odd co-incidence, another remix of the same tune came out of the vaults of Ewan Hoozami on the same day … which given it’s an 18 month old tune is odd.
In and amongst the heaps of promo that find their way into my inbox, it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd, but the word ‘Hope Sandoval’ made this one leap out from the pack. I was unaware of Ms Sandovals work till she collaborated with Massive Attack on the cracking Paradise Circus, and seeing her name alongside her old bandmates Mazzy Star – this is California
If this is up your street, the new album, Seasons of Your Day dropped a couple of days ago …
Last up this week comes courtesy of a mate of mine from the Big Chill days, Mach V who put me onto Atu’s work, or αtu if you’re into the entire ‘using a Greek letter as part of your name, thus making finding you via Google a bitch’ thing. Whatever. Mr Vee put me onto Close part of his ‘Friday Fun Tracks’ and as his hashtag “#slowjams” is spot on for this one.
Short, but oh, so sweet …
