This week’s all-action Top 22

In a bit of a flap this morning, so not much time for niceties, but lots of good stuff to dig into here, between a new boot of Riley & Cherry’s 1975 Cologne concert and the sublime Michael Mayer mix I’m playing as I type. Please do check out The Weather Station’s live set from Massey Hall, Mikey Young’s comp of mellow Aussie ‘70s psych, and also Joeything on Soundcloud: 20+ years ago, I often used to go and see a UK hardcore band called Joeyfat, whose default reviews invariably described them as a mix between Fugazi and Pulp. Now they’ve reconfigured as a duo, added a whole heap of Aphex acid into the mix, and work incredibly well as a sort of Sleaford Mods for people (like me) who don’t like Sleaford Mods very much. Give it a go…
