NOW CHECK OUT HIS SIX COURSE MEAL BELOW
4️⃣ An album you love that is not sung in your mother tongue, native language or an advanced learned language.
🎯"Manu Chao - 'Clandestino'. Some of his other material is a bit too happy or reggae-ish but this one is perfect, a coherent concept album tour de force, a relentlessly creative collage, like a polished home recording."
5️⃣ An album from the last year that we absolutely need to hear!
🎯"Tele Novella - Merlynn Belle. Natalie (Ribbons) is one of my favourite songwriters in the world right now. Jason (Chronis) is one of the best musicians in Texas. Good combo."
Selected track - Never
6️⃣ An album you have had involvement in and think still stands up today!
🎯"I produced the 'Trust EP' for Generationals. They're normally more slickly produced but our effort was a grittier and (to me) more interesting production. For my own music, I'd say the 'Career' LP. I was coming off a very disillusioning period and the title was facetious, to say the least. It is grimy, dirty, loud, with lots of attitude and still feels very good."
Selected 'Trust EP' track - Say For Certain
Selected 'Career' track - Soggy Soul
