We had whole continents of #NewMusic in our playlist this week! An eclectic mix of original, intelligent, melodic, grown-up songs - #electronic, #rnb, #jazz, #blues and #acoustic. And mostly from artists who you have not heard of - yet! Think 'next series of Jools' - that's the kind of artists that we play.
Amongst tonight's selections, there is #NewMusic from breathe., Les Amazones d'Afrique + Mamani Keita, LyricL + Kevin Mark Trail, Arlo Parks, Bayonne,+ Slow Magic, Soccer Mommy, Colonel Red, Plantlife, Eve Owen Music, JFDR, Floex, Lee Ranaldo + Refree, Sun, Moon and Talia, Junie & Thehutfriends, Henry Parker, Frank Birtwistle, Qiáo bù (Chow boo) and Nada Katana.
Our Luvva Cover feature is taken from a brand new album by TOY. They have stamped their own style on songs by singers and groups as diverse as Serge and Charlotte Gainsbourg, Pet Shop Boys and the Troggs. We have chosen the cover they have done of a song originally recorded by Iggy And The Stooges (Iggy Pop). Give it a listen!
