So much music, so little time.

As the title suggests, there just isn’t enough time to devour the music that sits in the airwaves before us.

This little selection of tunes is what has been tickling my ear drums as of late……

Purchased on a whim this morning, from the café nearest to my flat, this sweet little number from Tassia Reis is one of many highlights from the compilation album John Armstrong Presents Afrobeat Brasil. 

The criminally underrated Brewis brothers are at it again with Field Music’s latest offering: Open Here. As is customary, the critics are lapping it up and why shouldn’t they? The wonderfully delicate and Beatlesesque title track evidences the strength of songwriting on offer here.

Whilst you may question the wisdom in using a rather irritating sounding synth, there is no doubting Hiromi’s natural genius when it comes to the piano. Bask in the filth at 1.46.

Tera Melos remain a stalwart band of their scene, releasing Trash Generator late last year. 

Finally, the brilliant Norwegian saxophonist Marius Neset, who I had the pleasure of seeing last weekend. Unfortunately, I am unable to source some of the great tracks off his latest offering, Circle of Chimes, but this short video of his group playing with the London Sinfonietta should serve to demonstrate his extraordinary talent and composing ability.

Enjoy!
