The Fortnightly Playlist, April 23rd, 2017

There’s something of a back and forth this edition between rootsier sound and more electronic, modern sound. Between DJs like The Chemical Brothers, Lusine and Jai Wolf, and the roots, blues and soul of Taj Mahal & Keb’ Mo’, Jake Xerxes Fussell, and Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

Listen Here!

A couple days ago as I was driving into work, Fire by Beth Ditto came on the radio. I have not cranked the radio that loud that early in the morning for a long time. She’s got a bold, soul voice, and the song has a great, infectious groove. It’s definitely a favorite in this edition.

It would not be right to post this without mentioning the new single by a pair of blues giants, Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’. Don’t Leave Me Here Delivers exactly what you would want from these two. The tight blues riffs and the wailing harmonica offer us blues at its finest. Two absolute masters doing what they’ve done for over 50 yrs.

New singles from Feist, Waxahatchee, and POLICA, and new full albums from Bread & Butter, Low Roar, Jake Xerxes Fussell and Todd Albright round things out.
