The Calm Down: 006
Another week has come and gone; Castro passed away, Corre burnt his clothes, Wisconsin has gone to a re-count, and we made a playlist. Kicking things off this week is a track from a man described by Eric Clapton as "one of the most important artists in the history of rock", the elusive JJ Cale (don't worry I'd never heard of him either). Moving on, there are features from 'The Godfather of Neo-Soul' Roy Ayers, some liquid gold from Lee Fields, and a classic from the one and only Marcia Aitken. We've got spaced-out boogie from Hawaiian songstress Nohelani Cypriano, sun-drenched afrobeat from Ebo Taylor, a slice of surfy psychy loveliness from the wonderfully named King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, before tracks from Jordan Rakei and Kiko Bun play us out into tomorrow. Get the kettle on.
