Weekly Report Vol. 41

I’ve basically been listening to this Kate Tempest song on loop for the last week. I love what she does, how she articulates her vision and most of all what she represents in the music industry. She’s not trying to be anything she’s not and she’s found a home on Ninja where she’s not going to be manipulated into an ill-fitting mould. Truly inspirational performer, I can’t wait to start her new novel. There are some other tracks on here too this week, like the perennially wonderful Durutti Column, but I’m running out of space so click the link and check for yourself. Happy listening…

Weekly Report Vol. 40

Back again after a short break with a long list that I’ve been putting together over the last two weeks. We also kick off with a weird Michael Kamen cue from the film Brazil before getting into the theme from the score to TV show Humans. I’m obsessed with Cristobal Tapia De Veer at the moment and am re-watching Utopia again as I love seeing those cues with the picture so much. Loads of tracks to get stuck into, but standouts for me are the Julien Neto track VI, Goat – Talk To God, the wonderful new Baaba Maal track Gilli Men and the beautiful intro to the new Black Milk album which sounds like electric Miles Davis. Happy listening…

Weekly Report Vol. 39

Have been frantically record shopping all week so this one was difficult to cut down. We have a track from Bibio’s new release which is a bit of a departure in a lot of ways from the usual kaleidoscopic psychedelia we’re used to from him, along with a banger from the LA beat scene with Linafornia. We kick off with something I’m spinning constantly at the moment, Eddie Kendricks – My People…Hold On. Happy Listening…

Weekly Report Vol. 38

We’ve gone a bit weird this week, maybe as a result of seeing Nurse With Wound live over the weekend, but whatever the reason, I like it. Some old classics in there like the Gimmik track from odd bleepy label Toytronic, a very peculiar track from Simone White and Kassem Mosse called ‘Flowers In May’ and some Toru Takemitsu to finish off as I can’t get enough of him at the moment. Happy Listening…

Weekly Report Vol. 37

All I’ve been listening to this week is jazz and Steve Mason, which will become very apparent when you play this list. I discovered a great album by Matthew Halsall and the Gondwana Orchestra which is pretty straight on the first disc, but moves into some wonderful astral jazz on the second with a tribute to one of my all time favourites Alice Coltrane, which I’ve included here. Other notables are the one and only Richie Havens, Sun Ra, Ali Farka Toure and a wicked Welsh band called Yucatan who sound a bit like Sigur Ros. Happy listening…

Weekly Report Vol. 36

I’ve spent the last week having a love-in with my record collection as it’s been in boxes for the last few weeks, so there are a few old classics on here that I’ve rediscovered over the last few days. Microsillon and Saul Williams came straight out of a dusty old box of CD’s and Amon Tobin, Origamibiro, Nick Cave and Bersarinn Quartet came shortly after those. Somehow I’d missed out on Steve Mason but my friend played me this song over dinner on Friday and it blew my mind. Happy listening…

Weekly Report Vol. 35

It’s raining and miserable outside so it’s time to tune out of that and tune into the Weekly Report. Today we’ve got a real mix of stuff as usual, starting off with the man Bobby Womack and going straight into the track that The Verve based Bittersweet Symphony on (and the reason they never made any money on their biggest hit). We’ve also got some Kurt Vile, some Frank Zappa, some Fat White Family and all sorts of other weird and wonderful shit. Happy listening…

Weekly Report Vol. 34

2016 has really gotten its claws in now. New releases are starting to come thick and fast, including some very interesting re-releases. I’ve included a track from the Bread Woman project from Anna Holmer and Steve Moshier, a definite contender for re-release of the year. Also an unbelievable Moroccan funk cover of James Brown’s ‘Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag’ from 60’s psych/funk group Fadoul. Other highlights are the theme from The Revenant – I’ve been caning the soundtrack all week, Sakamoto has brought his magic to this one in a big way. Also check the track by Gossamer and get the album if you don’t have it already. Happy listening…

Weekly Report Vol. 32

A bit more of a positive mood this week kicking off with Darondo and straight into the Pink Martini version of Mas Que Nada. I love this song, my all time favourite version is on the Madlib Medicine Show Flight To Brazil album, but sadly that’s not on Spotify so you’ll have to make do with this one. I’m completely obsessing over the Andy Shauf track ‘Wendell Walker’, I love the way the vocal is mixed and the guitar tone they’ve used. It’s all so simple and clean but so moody and dark at the same time. Also, prizes to the first person who can tell me where they’ve heard ‘Crapa Pelada’ before. Happy listening…
