The 22nd Uncut Playlist Of 2017

People Never Give Up! This week's office listening.

Trending Now

Some disconnect between the mood in which I played most of these records this week, and feelings today as I post it. Curtis Mayfield on the stereo all morning here, at the very least, though since someone told me last week that Jeremy Corbyn was a massive Fela Kuti it seems only decent to hit up some of that later, too: “Fear Not For Man”!

Anyhow, do try and give a listen to House & Land, Angelo De Augustine, and Rosebud, an album previously unknown to me that’s basically Judy Henske and Jerry Yester’s follow-up to Farewell Aldebaaran.
