Three on a Thursday #108


its-a-girl-cupcakes-600x600Ok, I missed a week or so, but for once I have a far better excuse than my usual idiocy/slackness.

Beatrice Constance arrived on the 7th October, weighing in at 9lb 4oz and has thrown our world into a spin – I now have a 10 day old to look after as well as a 2 1/2 year old, so digging through heaps of tunes, carefully curating the finest from heaps  of dross has been less of a priority (doesn’t mean I’ve stopped entirely, mind)

Right, that’s it with the excuses – I’ve had a couple of weeks to select some corking tunes for you …

The Allergies are back and on top form with their super soul sampling Here I Am, which takesa classic slice of New Orleans soul and gives it a modern spin.  As ever this one has a wicked little groove to it which is fast becoming the boys trademark, and the festival footage video shows them

Next up this week is a rare version of a well known Wailers tune, Stir It Up. The ‘well known’ version is a favourite of mine as is almost inevitably in my set if I’m playing a reggae session, but this rocksteady version is rather lovely, and I’ll be hunting down a real copy for myself.

Last up is a new tune from relatively recent discovery, Aleos. His rather brilliant ‘Things you See‘ featured in ToT #95 and his new tune, Tranquil is just that, all ethereal vocals, vinyl crackle, summery pianos and woozy beats. You really need to check this guys back catalogue if you’re into your mellowness
