Three on a Thursday #158


8422464244_24b4610d82_kAnother week and three more tunes for your lugholes. Quick Bristol gig tip if you’re about tomorrow night – Jimi Needles with his band at The Lanes – gwaaaan, it’ll be good!

 I’m not familiar with Bastien Keb, but on the promise of Fit Rare, I’ll have to go a’diggin into his back catalogue  Insistent electronic string loop, simple snare drum cross stick and a shaker providing the beat for Cappo to do his thing over

(Last Cappo track I recall hearing was waaaaaay back in the mists of time on an old Mr Scruff compilation – I really should check out again.)

RJD2-ish beats, slightly honkytonk jazzesque piano and a tale of losing his parents. Guaranteed to be a laugh a minute, Copywrite eh?

Telling tales of a drunken upbringing fighting and watching Mafia films, before finding his folks dead forced him to sober up, Trouble then drops in to a massive Gospel sample from Nobody knows the Trouble. Truly lush stuff.

Available on the Murderland album from a few years back

Last up this week a slice of woozy low key trippy hip hop. Rainman’s 24 Hours reminds me a little of early Loyle Carner, with that molasses slow chug, underpinned by long minor key piano chords, a nice understated drumline, and a deep rumble of a bassline.

I’m really looking forward to getting a decent high bitrate copy of this and finding some speakers which can carry that low end – ooof!
