August 2012 Music

The Commodores - Celebrate

Flosstradamus - Rollup (Baauer Remix)

Gábor Szabó - Some Velvet Morning
The Hungarian jazz guitarist covers Lee Hazlewood.

Janey & Dennis - Take It From A Friend

Mugadzikwa Mwanagona - Chirombo Weye Nditerere
This is off an LP of Alan Lomax's field recordings in British East Africa. I think it was recorded in the 1950s. From the liner notes: "Played by Mugadzikwa Mwanagona (13) at Roman Catholic Location School, Fort Victoria, S. Rhodesia. In many districts, the use of indigenous instruments is discouraged by the missions, but young lads like this Karanga boy continute to play the Mbira. The boy had been given it by a Nyassa musician, but had tuned it to his local mode, paying his melodies in a manner traditional to his own district." Fucking missions...

Neil MacArthur - She's Not There // Without Her // Don't Try To Explain
I'm curious to know what possessed Colin Blunstone of the Zombies to re-record his hit song under a psuedonym, and then again in Italian.

The New Birth - You Are What I'm All About
I like to think of this song as an I Want You Back for (funky) grown-ups.

Soko - I Will Never Love You More
