Hi all. Lot’s of good stuff on this episode (imo). A little more electronica swing, some jazz, ambient & rap, even a track from an album by a rather excellent banjo player, even though that’s not apparent on the track I’ve selected to play.
I’m hoping there is something this month you like
I play a track from Max Cooper’s latest and reference the following website:

Hi all, Hope you find something in this episode you like. It’s a varied selection this month with a different sounding Mogwai with music created for film; a superb cover of the Hollies ‘Air that I breath’ from KD Lang’s 1997 album; a mash from Max Richter of one of his violin pieces with a 60’s hit single from Diana Washington, a kind of super group in a new project from the main men in Bon Iver and The National with lots of various genres in between from classical to electronic –swing, blues to ambiance. Enjoy.

All but two tracks in this episode is a compilation of album tracks previously omitted for selection in earlier, more album release date timely episodes, as a consequence of the record label choice to omit digital download cards with some vinyl purchases. I’ve asterisked as such, see track list below. You may have heard me state that such & such record had been released but without a digital copy and that I couldn’t be bothered to create one from the vinyl. Well – there are so many this year, I eventually capitulated and episode 81 results. The other two are:
• A track from 2003, by the Matthew Herbert Big Band recorded when his project was about Iraq – his next Big Band project is about Brexit! Personally, I can’t wait.
• A track to mark the demise of guitarist Danny Kirwan.
1. Mathew Herbert Big Band – Goodbye swingtime – “Misprints”
2. *Cowboys Junkies – All that reckoning – “When we arrive”
3. *Kamasi Washington – Heaven and Earth –“Sing”
4. *De-Phazz – Black white mono – “Foul and miss”
5. *Portico Quartet - Untitled (AITAOA #2 - “Unrest”
6. *Willie Nelson – Last man standing - It’s not something you get over
7. *Johann Johannsson IBM service manual “the sun’s gone dim and the sky’s turned black”
8. *Moby - Everything was beautiful and nothing – “Motherless child”
9. *Submotion Orch - Kites - “Tunnel”
10. *The Herbaliser - Bring out the sound - "over and over”
11. *Melody Gardot – Live in Europe - “Baby I’m a fool”
12. Fleetwood Mac - single – “Albatross”

The albums released over May/June 2018 have been rather excellent, so I’ve been spoiled for choice in this episode. However, some excellent stuff is omitted (i.e. there was no download card with the vinyl bought for a digital version of Kamasi Washington’s “Heaven & Earth”, nor for De-Phazz “Black, White, Mono” nor for the John Coltrane ‘Lost album – Both directions at once”. The first two are excellent – the Coltrane, whilst historically important is more an album for the Coltrane ‘completest’ imo.
From the selection in this episode, I am particularly enjoying the albums by Lump; Serpentwithfeet; Vynehall and the compilation from which the Dare track is taken plus the single from Doyle. Hope you find something you like.
1. Shake Your Shelter 5:23 LUMP LUMP .

Late night listening for Episode 75. Some jazzy, some ambient, some folky, some at the quieter end of indie and let’s and not forget the brass band. I mention a link to Bandcamp for one of the albums i.e. Leyland Kirby and that is: https://leylandkirby.bandcamp.com/album/we-so-tired-of-all-the-darkness-in-our-lives

I think all the tracks have merit (else they wouldn’t be here) but not all are an easy listen, so when it comes to Bibio – just think of church bells mournfully tolling.
The tracks on this episode are:
1. I Don't Know What to Say 2:49 The Weather Station The Weather Station
2. Consolation 4:38 Leyland Kirby We, so tired of all the darkness in our lives
3. To Feel Your Best 6:20 Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith The Kid Alternative
4. Sunrise Through The Dusty Nebula 5:01 Hannah Peel Mary Casio: Journey To Cassiopeia
5. Silhouette feat. Shabaka Hutchings 5:24 Zara Mcfarlane Arise
6. Smoking Section 3:39 St. Vincent Masseduction
7. Plain Gold Ring 5:26 Mop Mop DJ Maestro Presents: Nina Simone Little Girl Blue remixed
8. Sepia 5:27 Afterhere Sepia - Single
9. White Lights 3:55 The Rural Alberta Advantage The Wild
10. Everyday 3:42 Jamie Saft, Steve Swallow, Bobby Previte w. Iggy Pop Loneliness Road
12. Pretzel Logic 4:33 Steely Dan Pretzel Logic
Saw Steely Dan of their recent visit to UK and for Steely fans – this was the set list. As you will see they didn’t play Pretzel Logic – so I thought I would.
1. Bodhisattva
2. Black Cow (a rather wonderful vodka these days)
3. Hey Nineteen
It was here Fagan stated “We’re the Steely Dan organisation. We’re a little different from what we were a few months ago, but I gotta live with that.” The only reference made to Becker’s untimely departure.
4. New Frontier (Donald Fagen song)
5. Aja
6. Black Friday
7. Babylon Sisters
8. Time Out of Mind
9. Dirty Work
10. Peg
11. I Want To (Do Everything for You) (Joe Tex cover and when band introductions were made)
12. Josie
13. My Old School
14. Kid Charlemagne
15. Reelin' in the Years
16. Drum Solo (Keith Carlock - what a wonderful jazz/rock drummer HE is)
17. The Untouchables (Nelson Riddle cover, during which Fagan walked off stage and left band to it)

I’ve taken tracks from albums for this this month’s episode by the likes of The National, Sparks, as inventive and comedic as ever; Beyonce – yes, you read correctly and she’s paired with a track from the new Godspeed you! Black Emperor. There’s also a track from a heart wrenching album from Hammock composed following the death of a family member. All the tracks follow. The image for this episode is a picture of a West Midlands No. 74 bus which I used to used as a child most Saturdays to visit Dudley and in later teens, to visit Birmingham and on to clubs like Mothers.
