sees a new release from EDM pioneers Faithless. They've lost singer/speaker Maci Jazz but the heart of the lineup remains and there is a range of guest vocals (including the deep tones of Soul II Soul front man Jazzie B).

Happy Friday all and enjoy your weekend

got a real PFM vibe from this new machinedrum cut

just simple d'n'b, deep bass sprinkled strategically and the drop that lands like "a butterfly with sore feet" (sorry for the Bagger Vance reference but I am a golfer 🏌️)

Guitar God is a term often overused but in this case it was apt. Anyone my age certainly remembers the time they heard the first Van Halen album. All day I couldn't get the guitar riff (and some of the lyrics too) from Ain't Talkin bout Love out of my head

As Lenny Kravitz put it today "Heaven will be electric tonight"

RIP EVH

Apollo 440 offered this as tribute to VH some 20 years ago. Oh that riff

If you like a Latin tinge to your beats then you will probably love this Paris based Cuban "hip hop" artist, La Dame Blanche. She is a flutist, percussionist, producer and vocalist.

Most of the lyrics are spanish or French but the cutest part is in La Americana where she uses some very colourful English words after saying (in English) "sorry me no speaking english me speaking Spanish"

Enjoy this one with a very catchy vocal chorus

Rights holder is allowing streaming of the Beastie Boys final show through Monday

Tricky has a new lp (?) out today. I question calling it an lp because the 8 tunes clock in just under 23 minutes

For me he always works best when he lets his guest vocalists carry the weight of the singing. I don't think he voices in until track 6. I will listen again to be sure but for now I love the bassline in this cut. Enjoy and Happy Friday

Was in the lobby of the Sandman Hotel on Davie St in Van City

The sounds ystem was playing Glory Box. I was in heaven

a fave for so many reasons. still to this day I will occasionally sing to myself "daddy was a bankrobber, but he never hurt nobody"

Happy Birthday John Graham Mellor aka Joe Strummer born on this day in 1952. You are still with us in so many ways.

2nd photo is the handwritten lyrics from London Calling.

From this past weekend is this amazing set from Jennifer Lee aka TOKiMONSTA.

The set gets really cooking about the 5 min mark when she has guest vocalists VanJess appear to help with a TOKiMONSTA original. As the vocalists leave after there number we get an amazing mix that had me with the OMG face. She mixed in a remix of Tame Impala's Let it Happen and it never sounded so good.

So with that in mind you should just Let it Happen

New music from the Ninja Tune label. Listened through once and had no great objections. Today will be listen 2.

Was happy to see Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs making a guest appearance.

Some straight ahead floor bangers and some slow burners populate this effort and we are all the better for it

How goofy is this? Falls under the misheard (?) lyrics.

The Smiths - How Soon is Now

I always understood the lyrics to be "I am the Sun and the Air" and just saw it written out as "Son and the Heir"

If I actually tried to understand lyrics in songs (usually don't and that's why I'm not a big fan of musicals) that would change everything

Great chill set for a warm summer early eve live from Squamish.....The Librarian

this was not what I expected when I saw the sign from another aisle

these were not the albums I expected

totally forgot about this collaboration. saw the dance troupe on their own and they were incredible. count on Bowie to mix genres and disciplines

friend posted this effort from a band of "friends" saying "remember recording these a couple of years ago, nice to see them released"

Love the keyboards

There's a reason that 4AD has always been my go to label. They always champion new, unique performers. Can't say I love everything that comes from the label but it will always get consideration (a listen). And with all the "cult" bands don't forget they did give M/A/R/R/S too

With that in mind
