A Christmas gift.

Idris Muhammad-Turn this mutha out. 1977 jazz soul funk. This guy played on loads of other people's albums so I have found a right rabbit Warren here. I love his drumming style.

Hania Rani 'Esja' (2019)

Image

The great composer Frederic Chopin came from Poland, and listening to the first album from young Polish pianist Hania Rani you intuitively know that there is some sort of spiritual connection to the past.
Her music has shades of the present and can be compared to Ludovico Einaudi or Philip Glass. But there is a unique grace and depth to both her writing and playing.

Beautiful, thoughtful and enchanting.
Treat yourself to a listen.

Siouxsie & the Banshees 'A Kiss in the Dreamhouse' (1982)

Image

In one of my regularly recurring shifts in genre - what I want to listen to at the moment is The Banshees and The Bunnymen. So here I am by the creative triumph of 'A Kiss in the Dreamhouse' where Siouxsie and her boys go all-out to make a sprawling Psychedelic Rock record that pays tribute to their 60's heroes whilst sounding totally new.
Also a middle-finger to the Punks and Goths who had embraced the band as icons. 'Dreamhouse' goes its' own way and cannot be pigeonholed.

This is also the final Banshees album to feature the guitar of the mighty John McGeoch, who was exhausted by the gruelling touring schedule, he left the band to later join PIL and died far too young.

One of the strengths of The Banshees is that - no matter who the guitarist is - they always are, unmistakeably, The Banshees. Budgie's inventive use of percussion, Severin's trademark bass with chords and open-string harmonics, and Siouxsie is, well, Siouxsie and there will never be another like her.

I saw them in concert several times and each performance was truly memorable. Any band who can put out albums like 'Juju', 'Hyaena' and 'Tinderbox' just has to be rated amongst the very best.

Nuff said - time to boogie! :dance:

So melt!
My lover, melt!
She said, melt!
My lover, melt!
