[Video] The Durutti Column – Domo Arigato

The first live album I was ever blown away by.

When I was attending college in my teen years, I had a good friend, Fish, who had impeccable musical taste. He introduced me to the work of The Durutti Column, and if memory serves me right, this was the record which first turned me on to their oeuvre.

Nearly 30 years later, it still sounds magnificent. Hunt down this album, and hope that Factory will reissue this as a Blu-Ray one day.

Luscombe’s Choice – 25th February 2015 by Resonance Fm on Mixcloud

Before today, I had no idea who Will Luscombe was. I’m certainly impressed with his choices in jazz!

Resonance FM is quite a site for amazing podcasts.

[Video] 잠비나이 (Jambinai) – Connection

Many thanks to dear Maryna Evilly from Ukraine for originally posting this.

The band is a new one to me. It seems that they’re from South Korea, and, at least on this track, they have a sound which reminds me of Tuxedomoon or bands from the legendary Italian record label Materiali Sonori.

So much great music coming out of North Africa these days. Amanar are a wonderful discovery out of Mali, published by Sahel Sounds, a magnificent record label out of Portland, Oregon, covering brilliant music out of the North and West of Africa.
