#lounge_nudisco has the sound this week. HNNY out of Sweden has apparently stopped making music for a bit and it’s not making our peeps happy. But before he transitioned to the DJ role, he made sure we knew that “Most Really Pretty Girls Have Pretty Ugly Feet”. S/O to @davehawkins for bringing HNNY to the board. By the way, HNNY is pronounced “Honey” and it’s not the first time an artist has dropped the vowels. #savethevowels

HNNY -- Most Really Pretty Girls Have Pretty Ugly Feet

#reggae is good for your soul. And if you care about your soul, you’ll care about Wayne Smith. As a Kingston native, Mr. Smith has been giving us music since he was 14 years old. His style is considered “ragga” which arrived to the music world because of MIDI technology and is probably not alone. Feel da rythm. Feel da rhyme. Get on up. It’s bobsled time!

Wayne Smith - Icky All Over

What else is going on?

 

Gilles Peterson released a compilation of Sun Ra music that most #jazz heads will appreciate. Sun Ra has been making his genre interesting since The Great Depression. And if there’s anything that makes music intriguing, it’s when genres are pushed to the edges. Well...Sun Ra was known for that and you now have a starter pack that was put together by one of the best selectors in the game. Time to get going…

Don’t sleep on…


When Texas dates Thailand and it works out perfectly: Khruangbin. Psychedelic indeed, the three-piece group does what they do well and you should be listening. Their recent album “The Universe Smiles Upon You” was released this past week and it’s good. ‘nuff said:
Khruangbin - White Gloves
