best of all worlds #36

Tru-Thoughts records have been putting out some fantastic releases lately, the Zed Bias album, the Hidden Orchestra EP and now, very recently the new Mark De Clive Lowe album… like the album, quiet different from the previous Mark De Clive Lowe albums, it’s less broken, less dance floor, more song writing oriented… all tracks except those jazzy interludes and minute tracks, which I do love by the way, have vocalists on them; favourites include, “Push” featuring Bembe Seque, “Get Started” featuring Omar and “Under Orders” featuring Tawiah… I like the arrangements, the lyrics, and the overall finish… definitely one great album to listen to from start to finish…

Also in this weeks podcast, music from Floating Points, his new EP is out in the shops, there is talks of a Floating Point album, so what out… music from Falty DL, intersting EP on Ninja Tune, a new remix from the Ambassadeurs, and new music from the Al Scott Trio, London based jazz trio, they just put out a 6 track via band camp… I did have the pleasure of watching the trio live a while back, great bit of classic jazz…

Oh by the way, I recently found out that Mark is doing the Sun Splash festival next year… he is a fantastic performer, check out the footage from his London gig a few weeks back… I believe the tickets for Sun Splash 2012 are on sale now, I’ve had the pleasure of playing in the last two, definitely worth going… line up is sick!
