Politics, talk to the hand! ✋

Politics, talk to the hand! ✋

It’s been a long start to 2017. January has sort of gone on and on and there’s been a big focus on politics both here in the UK and in the US.

Trump this, Trump that. May this, May that.

When it’s all too much and you want a break; turn to the music. Here are a few tracks I’ve had on repeat through January. (If you have Spotify open that before you first hit play).

After Hours by Monster Rally

If the hip-hop movement was born in the tropics Monster Rally was their mascot.

Kerala by Bonobo

Post-party intellectual chill-out suitable for any time of day.

Nobody feat. Gold Link by Leisure

Like a super slinky Prince Beck playing on board a yacht in the Med in 1990.

Look At What The Light Did Now by Flo Morrissey and Matthew E. White

A youngish English chanteuse flies across the ocean to hang with a soft-spoken American auteur producer for two weeks.

Better Man by Leon Bridges

Bringing mid- to late-’60s to today channelling Otis Redding and Sam Cooke.

G Train by Thirdstory

NYC trio of singer-songwriters drawing from Marvin Gay, Amy Winehouse – great for a soul-filled Sunday.

Take that politics! 🎶
