Fingerpicked

on a regular basis we deliver you a set of songs you should listen to. There's also a spotify playlist coming with it of course. Fingerpicked songs are theme based or compiled by guest selectors. 

Playlist: they call it Martini sommer - november 2011

No. 1
Fatoumata Diawara - Bakonoba (World Circuit, 2011)

This new voice from Mali sounds very compelling. The whole album is worth listen to. This is Africa!

No. 2
Golden Avatar - Time For Going Home (Sudarshan, 1976)

Hare Krishna rock from the mid seventies that just sounds great while packing up things and heading home.

No. 3
Clock Opera - Let Go The Lifeboats (Moshi Moshi, 2011)

Another great new band from London that you cant really pigeonhole. Moshi Moshi keeps on coming with music that neglects any genre definition.

No. 4
Kate Bush - How To Be Invisible (EMI, 2005)

Trippiness from Mrs. Bush's «Aerial» album. An album we have overlooked a bit when it came out. But it's never too late to cerish its subtle deepness.

No. 5
J.J. Cale - Let's Go To Tahiti (Island, 1979)

Another song by J.J. Cale we only discovered recently. Repetitive chords like waves taking you on a boat to... yeah Tahiti. Could need an edit. But please, a good one!

No. 6
Pale Saints - Kinky Love (4AD, 1991)

Totally under radar Leeds outfit made some pre dream pop already in the lates 80s. They just called it «indie» back then. Lovely cover of this Nancy Sinatra tune.

No. 7
Michael Johnson - Happier Days (Atco, 1973)

This is the music guys like Jonathan Jeremiah draw from. Off his debut album «There Was A Breeze», when Johnson was still a folky before becoming a top Country act in the 80s.

No. 8
Mayer Hawhtorne - A Long Time (Universal Republic, 2011)

Off his album «How Do You Do» from October. Its not as good as his debut honestly. This tune though makes our fingers tip, heads nod and yeah even shake a leg or two.

No. 9
Bill Conti - Reflections (Capitol, 1982)

Mostly remembered for «Gonna Fly» and of course «Eye Of The Tiger», the «Rocky» Soundtrack also features this forgotten gem. Work it out!

No. 10
Johnny Harris - Footprints On The Moon (Warner, 1969)

Sounds like taken off a soundtrack. But its actually not. Cinematic!

No. 11
Nils Frahm - Familiar (Erased Tapes, 2011)

Probably the best work Frahm did to this day. His new album is beautiful Classical music squeezed into the Neue Musik genre. From what he told us without any attemp to do so. Just a man and his piano and his breath.

No. 12
Doug Paisley - Us And Them (Mojo, 2011)

Another song off that brilliant MOJO magazine CD covering Pink Floyd's «The Dark Side Of The Moon». Willing to say this tops the original, but that would be a bit harsh.

No. 13
Personal Life - Give It Into The Night (Solid Wax, 2011)

This tune definitely doesnt sound like 2011. Could easily be a rare boogie track from 1981. That's probably why we like to play it out so often lately.

No. 14
Ides of March - Vehicle (Warner, 1970)

What a tune. One you'd like to blast out in your black Sedan (listen to the lyrics...). Must try this one once at a club once. Bet it will work with the ladies and the funkier guys. There's also an afro version of it, we might tracklist soonish.

No. 15
Kid Creole & The Coconuts - I Do Believe (Strut, 2011)

He's back. The man who brought calypso into New York's strange mixture of new wave, disco and avantgarde of early 80's. And he's still striving for the groove. A belter!

No. 16
Crazy P - The Unbearable Lightness Of Being (PID, 2011)

Havent spot the sample yet, but the title of the song is refering to the book by Milan Kundera. Brilliant lightweight nu disco track that makes the ladies wooble their behinds.

No. 17
Stratus - Footprints (Fragments, 2011)

Yes, this is the way nu disco/balearic should sound in 2011. In the Phil Mison/Cantoma school it opens skies and throbs along nicely to this infectious bassline. Early morning bliss.

No. 18
Four Tops - Love Music (Motown, 1972)

After they sadly left Motown. But this soul music at it's must uplifting and life affirming. Take it to your heart and sing along. We need more love music to turn the people right one!!!

No. 19
DJ Shadow feat Little Dragon - Scale It Back (Roc-A-Fella, 2011)

The original father of Triphop still knows how to program a beat. And with Yukimi from Little Dragon wailing over it this becomes a tune you cant get out of your head for weeks or months.

No. 20
Lexia - Lady Rain (MGM, 1972)

In these shores it hasnt been raining for more than a month. So, why not have this Rain song in our list. And it's an uplifting rain song as well. Let it rain down!
