After a long weekend in Barcelona, Soleado Bros do a mixtape, remembering the late great Chuck Berry and playing tunes by Chip Wickham remixed by Carlos Niño, BADBADNOTGOOD, Cubo, Nicole Willis, Pip Blom, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Thurst.
Soleado express their outrage at certain, supposedly christian organisations’ lowness, only putting their deity’s commandments to practice when it suits them, and erroneously believe theirs is the only way. Few things better to fight idiocy and fascism than to play good tunes: Paul McCartney & Elvis Costello, Onom Agemo, Thundercat featuring Michael McDonald & Kenny Loggins, Oddisee, Collocutor, and Les Sueques.
The Soleado bros talk about their beloved Spanish politcal parties and politicians, POTUS, the sadly departed Al Jarreau, and their mate Bruno who’s celebrating his birthday on this glorious Valentine’s Day. Tuuuuuunes by Omar, Mac DeMarco, Irakere, Michael White, Allah-Las, and Palehound.
The Soleado bros. go unpronounceable this week, sharing their wish for the leader of the so-called free world be removed from power by playing tunes by The Honey Drippers, Antibalas, and DJ Shadow. Plus, new and old stuff by Onom Agemo and his Disco Jumpers, Bastien Keb, Miriam Makeba, Blaze Foley, and the Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band.
This week the Soleado Bros. made a mixtape with some tuuuuunes by Alex Rodriguez, Bhi Bhiman, Nickodemus, Skylab, Lucky Brown, and Papooz. They’re also playing on by the legendary Can, saying goodbye to Jaki Liebezeit, and another one by Chip Wickham, because his debut album is the best thing that happened this month.
January 20th, 2017 is the beginning of the end, and to celebrate, the boys from Lovemonk are releasing Chip Wickham’s fantastic first album. On Soleado they’re playing Chip’s version of Camarón de la Isla’s “La leyenda del tiempo”, plus a whole bunch of tunes by the likes of Omar, Yussef Kamaal, Max Graef, Lafa Taylor, and Pedro Santos, among many others.
