Kerala
by Bonobo

" ...There is a theme on the upcoming album of migration, eruditely put by Green as “The study of people and spaces,” he expands, “It’s interesting how one person will take an influence from one part of the world and move with that influence and affect another part of the world. Over time, the identities of places evolve.” 'Migration', is Bonobo's sixth album. https://bonobomusic.bandcamp.com/album/migration Bonobo performed live at KEXP in September of 2017.

Wild Hearts
by The Mynabirds
(7 plays) | (0 fans)

"No stranger to politics in her songwriting, Laura aimed to speak from the voice of the collective consciousness in a work of "Emotional Journalism," singing the heartbreak, anger, exhaustion and resolute hope she witnessed during the Muslim travel ban, the final stand at Standing Rock, and every other news story that rattled America in that period. The album vacillates in style and feel to reflect a frayed nation, featuring a Burundian refugee choir on one song, and a cacophony of dissonant saxophones in a new national anthem on another. It is the last recording made in that space." https://bit.ly/3umRAGN The Mynabirds performed live for the Midday Show back in 2018.

Can I Kick It?
by A Tribe Called Quest
(265 plays) | (1 fan)

The rhythm is built from a drum break and Hammond riff from Dr. Lonnie Smith’s “Spinning Wheel,” from the 1970 album "Drives"; there’s a reverb-y guitar slide from Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band’s buoyant 1976 calypso-disco track “Sun Shower”; and there’s Herbie Flowers’ “Walk on the Wild Side” bass line—originally recorded by Ken Scott and doubled on a Fender electric bass and an acoustic double bass—which forms the melodic glue.: https://www.mixonline.com/recording/classic-tracks-tribe-called-quest-can-i-kick-it-429686
