@TheBrandedSwordsman I can’t quite place the sound but I do love that jazzy/soul/funk hybrid that is actually done particularly well over in Oz, I think they’re from Melbourne a great music city. Their sound is morish. I’ve recently rediscovered my love for Ohio players, War and The Meters, seems to be getting me through the COVID times.

I was an avid listener of 6music at one time but I felt it started to get a bit repetitive during the day, which is when I could listen the most. I love Stuart Maconie though, also Mark Radcliffe who I’ve followed since the Mark and Lard days. Those guys including Marc Riley, and then the weekend lot Craig Charles et al are where I get the most new stuff that pings my radar from. Might put it on today, do they still have a guest in place of Jarvis Cocker and Guy Garvey?

@Keith_Zissou There is no guest at the moment as far as I am aware. Guy Garvey has his own show 'Guy Garvey's Finest Hour' in a regular slot on Sunday afternoons. I'll have to listen to War and the Meters and get back to you with a review. Glad to hear your a fellow Freak Zone enthusiast - it's a great show!

@Keith_Zissou I am currently listening to Good Old Funky Music by the Meters, not bad stuff but not my usual sort of thing, I am more of a jazz head nowadays, I searched Youtube for War and it came up with Low rider, I am already very familiar with that song. KoRn covered it, did they not? Do you like any straight-ahead jazz guitar stuff like Pat Metheny and John Scofield, more traditional jazz like early John Coltrane and Miles Davis, or any wilder more experimental music rooted in jazz and rock like Allan Holdsworth? (Legendary guitarist, probably the best guitarist there has ever been)

That's the first track on an album that features him on a few songs, last recorded material he produced before his untimely demise, you might have to go through the playlist to get to the songs with him playing guitar on that album, which I bought recently, or just search Youtube for Allan Holdsworth songs if you want to get straight to his guitar playing.

@TheBrandedSwordsman I love jazz, It’s so vast though, I feel the further down the rabbit hole I go the more there is to discover. Even after nearly 20 years learning and listening I still feel like a padawan. I love Ramsey Lewis Trio, Miles Davis (Sketches of Spain in particular), Art Blakey and Mulatu Astatke to name a few. Cinematic Orchestra were the first group where I really took notice of the genre. Recent years I’ve been getting into more modern stuff like The Comet is Coming, Sons of Kemet and Binker and Moses etc...

I haven’t heard of the names you mentioned, I’ll be sure to check them out.

Somehow only just saw that Richard H Kirk from Cabaret Voltaire died. He was a totally underrated pioneer of electronic music.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

@Jimmer-jammer I just saw your recommendation, the snap and harmonics are used really well, and he's a good guitarist too, it's not just a gimmick from a guy who can't really play, I may check out more of his stuff, really good recommendation - thanks!

Also, you can't make a mistake when you make a music video like that, when it all has to be seamless, although I don't know how much editing was involved, of course.

@nessisonett Also saw this. I was never a massive fan or anything, but I did go through a phase with Cabaret Voltaire five or six years ago.

My current listening has gone a bit weird. Currently listening - almost exclusively - to odd pagan atmospheric ambient and chants and viking folk... basically it's nearly all scandinavian and sounds like it could be the soundtrack to a dream sequence in a hypothetical viking movie.

@Jimmer-jammer Really enjoying that Calum Graham track. I know nothing about playing guitar but it sounds good and that's all that matters to me.

@johncalmc Please share, I'm intrigued by this pagan music

@johncalmc You know I've heard of Heilung before but not actually listened to any of their stuff. It's definitely something I could get into and does remind me of another band but can't for the life of me remember what they are called.

@TheBrandedSwordsman I enjoyed that, thanks. After an incredibly engaging beginning, it lost me a bit in the middle but came full circle. Some awesome keys in there as well.

Yeah , Calum Graham is definitely worth checking out. I find his songs very inspirational and his style just jives with me. As for the video, I would imagine the music was recorded outside of the video, though I can’t say for sure. I’ll post one of my favourites of his here. (He uses a looping pedal, tastefully) Other than that, don’t have much for recommendations at the moment.

@render glad to hear you’re enjoying that. He’s a phenomenal guitarist. Musical know how certainly grants a more academic appreciation of music but music is first and foremost an emotional medium, which I think can be enjoyed by anyone on whatever level they enjoy it 😊 here’s one of my favourites of his.

@render Do you ever listen to the Frank Skinner Show on Absolute Radio? I recommend it just for the chat even if you don't like the music, I think that there is a version available on the Absolute Radio website with just the chat, if you're intrigued.

@TheBrandedSwordsman I didn’t even realise he was on the radio so will have a listen. He’s a very funny guy so I’d imagine it’s quite good. I saw that 6music had to make an announcement about Keaveny leaving. It sounds like people generally thought he was pushed out rather than deciding to have a change, which he did cite as the reason.

@render I didn't realise that they had to make an announcement - did they just clarify it was his decision?
