While it seems we’re at the mercy of a couple of clowns on the verge of activating their respective Doomsday Devices just to see who’s got the bigger hands/smaller mind, Soleado just keep playing the tunes. This week there’s two by the sadly departed Bruce Langhorne, AKA Mr. Tambourine Man, and a bunch more by Duke Bird Jnr, Laetitia Sadier, Ondatrópica, Louis Coles, Tenderlonious, Izo Fitzroy, Jill Peacock, and Winter Family.
Broadcasting from his summer mansion on the east coast, Lubacov’s sounding rather nocturnal in this week’s Soleado. The show opens and closes with Alex Rocks, whose first album is coming out this week, and there are some quality tunes by the likes of Louis Cole, Deoke, Ephemerals, spoony bard, and B. Bravo.
Soleado proclaim themselves independent from independence, say goodbye to the recently passed Alessandro Alessandroni, and play tunes by Bill Callahan, Erkin Koray, Mark de Clive-Lowe, Wavves, Noriel Vilela, and the very great Eddie Palmieri.
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.
