'Tickling My Fancy' Musical Revue #4

‘Tickling My Fancy’ Musical Revue #4




Join me on yet another grand tour of the unfamiliar, unusual and most interesting sounds to have tickled my particular appetite during April.

This months spread includes Dulcet Malian desert blues, instagram toned summer pop, modular glitch cinematics, cocktail jazz and a respectful nod of acknowledgement to Richie Havens, who passed away this week.

‘Tickling My Fancy’ also previews the brand new compilation of soul, funk and jazz treasures from the one-man in a Bavarian town run label, Tramp Records: celebrating ten years in the business of compiling lost finds from private recordings.
