The 'Tickling My Fancy' Music Revue #3 5

The ‘Tickling My Fancy’ Music Revue #3

Welcome to another bumper edition of ‘tickling my fancy’, a survey of singles, albums and compilations that met my aural approval during March.

Join me as I navigate through a truly worldwide panoramic musical orbit of Cajun garage bombast, posthumous J-pop Krautrock, old valves and knob twiddling techno soul searching, wild birth of Afro Funk, halcyon psych and Pope bashing/adulation.

There’s also a double bill of exclusive album streams from the Jazzman label, featuring the brand new Sign Of Four psych-fused, global tour-de-force of exotica project from Natural Yogurt Band’s Miles Newbold and the latest erudite volume of Spiritual Jazz (4).
