Overland Posted June 18, 2021 Share Posted June 18, 2021 Man, look at the calendar. It's been weeks since I've made a New Music Friday post. Miss me? No? Hmmm. Not nice. NMF must happen. OK, I'm starting off with Sparks: • That was a good warmup, right? Sure, you hated that song, but I promise that you will be humming it for days. That is your punishment. Now, on with the show. I don't get the name of this song, but it scores a solid 8.5 on the cool scale: • A nice something from Braids: • You guys know I'm a sucker for jazz flute, so: • Kabuki jazz flute is always cool, or so I've heard. And if cool is going to be the theme this week, we can't leave out Laurent Garnier, especially when teamed with the Limiñanas. Spoken word music, in French, how could that not be cool: • Nice, how about one more of the same, but different. Very, very different: • Speaking of cool, Tricky is too cool to even be heard on his records these days. But at least he shows up for live performances and makes noises that might be words? Hard to say, really: • Thylacine, one of my current favorites, gets a smooth groove going in his latest, and smooth grooves? Always cool: • This song is from last year, but it showed up on my music feed today again for some reason, and I see the video is just a few weeks old. Maybe it's being relaunched by the record company? It definitely deserves another listen. Smooth Motown vibes. Now that's cool: • And I'll finish with a different kind of cool - a dreamy guitar thing from Kele Okereke: • "But wait", you say, "No techno this week? How can that be?" Be, it can. I do have some techno, but I also have this - hip hop techno. Oh, yeah, with a little old school dub reverb thrown in for flavor. Cool: That is all. 1 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
