01 – Clara Hill and Vikter Duplaix- Chillin’ With You. I’m anxiously waiting for Clara Hill’s new album. This cut is my wakeup track.
02 – Yam Who? – Wrap You Up. I’m a huge fan of Yam Who? and this cut only underscores the reason why.
03 – Sergio Mendes with Q-Tip and will.i.am – The Frog. From Timeless, quite possibly the best album to come out so far in 2006.
04 – King Britt featuring Bahamadia – Transcend. From Adventures In Lo-Fi.
05 – Gnarls Barkley – Crazy. Hear that vocalist? That’s Cee-Lo working with Dangermouse. Check them out here.
06 – Izzi Dunn – Out Of My Hands. Cellist and singer from the UK who I’m warming up to just from the one track I’ve heard. Check her out here.
07 – V – Born Again (Featuring Jill Scott). V, from Philly, does not dissapoint. From The Revelation Is Now Televised.
08 – PJ Morton – No Ordinary Love. Classic soul music? He’s got it. Check him out here.
09 – Sergio Mendes with Jill Scott and will.i.am- Let Me. Fantastic cut. Reason #2 why this CD is fantastic.
10 – Donald Fagen – H Gang. I was forwarded this cut just before this album came out which made me pick up Morph The Cat, which is also in heavy rotation.
11 – Lewis Taylor – I’m On The Floor. I was all prepared to see Lewis Taylor this week. Unfortunately, it has just been reported he had polyps and has cancelled all US shows in March and April. From Lewis II.
12 – Prince – The Word. From the upcoming 3121
13 – Quintessence – Never. I’m still grooving to Quintessence and will continue to do so for quite some time. From Talk Less Listen More.
14 – Beady Belle – Lose & Win. Quintessence caused me to pull out Beady Belle yet again. From Home.
15 – Beanfield featuring Ernesto – Someone Like You. From Seek.
I’m a podcast virgin, so I’m warming up to the possiblities they present, which is thrilling me to no end. You can expect interactive vocals in future podcasts. Responses are definitely welcome. Special shoutouts to Gwenzilla, Wayne, and Darryl from Moodsmusic.
