Playlist 418 - Oct 11 2016

A few compilations we dipped into this week. Tim Maia was a groundbreaking Brazilian singer/songwriter who paved a way in funk, out on Luaka Bop. Numero Group continue their great archive work by compiling the American kid bands who followed in the wake of The Jackson Five in the 1970s. And J&D with a Northern Soul cut from their UK soul scene 3 disc compilation.

Entrance with a gorgeous chamber folk song with a hint of psych about it. Damien Jurado, compelling as ever, from the sountrack of Tumbledown. And The Sea Nymphs from the early 90s, a jaunty genreless gem.

And Rattle. Two women. Two drumkits. Two voices.
