Two weeks in a row eh?

Thanks to those of you who made it over to the Old Market Assembly last Friday to watch me support Normanton Street. There are some photos doing the rounds, taken by a nice chap called Nathen Fitchen – if you ‘re after gig photography round Bristol, you should hit him up

Onwards to the tunes!

First up this week is a glorious little edit of the Godfather of Soul’s I Feel Good (which the wife and I had played when we walked back up the aisle at our wedding as it happens …) . I’m not sure it’s actually legal to make James Brown’s work even funkier, but somehow I think Nick Bike has managed it on Feelin’ Good

If you like it, chuck them some cash and get a copy of the track on ‘Chosen Spokes Vol. 5’ here

Next up is the latest release from those guardians the 7” vinyl flame, Mukatsuku Records.

Their latest 7″ is an odd disco-ish soulful reggae covers number, with the standout track being Suzy Brown‘s version of Michael Jackson’s Shake Your Body (the flip has a cracking version  George McCrae’s Rock Your Baby done by Aynne & Anice Peters)

Available here (and unfortunately one you’re going to have to click through to to hear more than the snippet below …)

I’ve been a fan of Bonobo since I first heard Sleepy Seven many many moons ago, which led me to the rest of his debut album, Animal Magic, so I was quite excited about the release of his latest album Migration on Monday.

It’s a stunner.

His music has become even more beautifully ethereal over the intervening years, adding layers of complexity which he somehow manages to make sound simple.

I had to travel to London for work earlier in the week and despite having a stack of music to listen to, I ended up putting the entire album on repeat for pretty much the entire trip. It’s really difficult to pick a ‘best’ track, but I think at the moment Surface sticks with me the most, with something almost Jamie XX-ish about it
