BSOTS 118 - Random Acts Of Musicology...
Now Playing: Kieran Hebden / Steve Reid / Mats Gustafsson
Topic: my podcasts

This episode is just another game of catch-up, featuring a bunch of artists and songs that I was listening to over the summer and some recent musical obsessions of mine. The Junk Culture cut I found through Promonet, which features the vocalist from Phantogram, so I was all over that. That's followed up by the lumberjack soul of Miles Bonny, the future flight of Union, and a new cut from Torae produced by Marco Polo. Hard to believe that this is coming from Torae's debut album; it seems like he's been in the game forever at this point. A pair of tunes from the unconventional hymnal follow after that, featuring the ill poetics of Propaganda and the biblical funk of Andrew Wartts and the Gospel Storytellers.

Hanna & Beatr8's "Flowers" has been on constant repeat for me and it's another example of how Sweden has been unfairly blessed with an ample amount of talent. Drunken Monkey's a new find for me and "July" takes me right back to the good vibes of summer. Vocalist Chrys-Anthony sounds amazing on this cut. Had to follow that up with the opener from Robin Hannibal's Bobby E.P. - he is an absolutely amazing producer. We pick up the pace after that with a classic from Quantic & Nickodemus, which was heavily featured in an iPod advertisement a few years back. Dotmatic piggybacks beautifully on the Quantic cut, which leads neatly into a Colman Brothers/Q-Tip mashup.

Billy Drease Williams brings back that feelgood hip-hop and the mood gets kicked up a few notches with the Pure P & Melo Remix of SoulParlor (with Oddisee in great form as usual on the mic). Producer K-Def gets hold of a De La Soul classic and the results are head nod whiplash-inducing. After that, it's time for a little boogie revival courtesy of Toro Y Moi and Breakbot turning in a fabulous remix of a Matthew Dear cut. Two real big obsessions for me over the summer were Jonti and Thundercat. Hopefully the cuts featured from both artists will serve as great reasons why.

The show closes out big with two artists that should be familiar to most who listen to this show. Jamiroquai uploaded "Smile" to his Soundcloud page about six months ago as a free download and it went pretty fast. Jay Kay really needs to stop teasing us and put out a new album already. Last but certainly not least, Jazzanova strolls through with expected beauty, a cut from their latest compilation entitled Coming Home. Had a lot of fun putting this one together and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did putting it together.
