Release Date: June 18, 2012
Featured Track: “Dream Baby Dream (Four Tet Remix)

This track is hot, hot, hot. And is on heavy rotation on my playlist. Stuck in my head to be exact. A woman on the move with a fascinating heritage, Neneh Cherry is a creative force to be reckoned with. Don’t put her in a box. On her latest effort, she’s partnered with Sweden jazz trio The Thing, a group who took its name from a piece by world/free jazz trumpet great Don Cherry. So it makes sense that they should eventually team up with Don Cherry’s daughter.

1. Cashback (Neneh Cherry)
2. Dream Baby Dream (Suicide)
3. Too Tough To Die (Martina Topley-Bird)
4. Sudden Movement (Mats Gustaffson)
5. Accordion (MF Doom)
6. Golden Heart (Don Cherry)
7. Dirt (The Stooges)
8. What Reason (Ornette Coleman)

Sonny & The Sunsets Go Country with “Longtime Companion”

Artist: Sonny & The Sunsets
Album: Longtime Companion
Hails From: San Francisco
Release Date: June 26, 2012
Featured Track: “I See the Void”

I heard this track a while ago. Saved it and listened to it many times before realizing it was a Sonny & The Sunsets track. Proving that I truly do love every single thing he releases. This, their forthcoming release, is a country album. And fittingly so because it’s a breakup record about love and heartache. Every song written while ending his 10 year relationship with his girlfriend. Let’s hope it’s as healing as it is beautiful.
