Bless Playlist 27/9/05

First night back after a six-month break and I had fun! The vast majority of what I played was new stuff, mingled in were a few old faves and some birthday specials for Sean.

God, what do I pick as the best new track? There’s too much choice, the new Deerhoof, Cyne, Juliana Hatfield, Minus The Bear, Reef The Lost Cauze?

Well, this week’s best new track was ‘Automaton’ by Cyne:


‘Automaton’ is a beautiful hip hop track, crammed full of swerving lyrical flourishes and, unlike a lot of “underground” hip hop, married to a rock-solid, head-nodding beat. Check out this album review.

The best old track was Wynonie Harris‘ ‘Playful Baby.’ :


A stomping, rocking classic!
