The Soleado Brothers suffer from temporary memory loss when it comes to this week’s news, but the tunes keep coming, this week from Calypso Rose, Etienne de la Sayette, Jamie xx, Sans Soleil, and Violent Femmes. Moreover, there’s another advance track from Pajaro Sunrise’s new album!
A part of every self-respecting vinyl lover died after the news about the imminent closure of mythical NY record store Other Music, but in Soleado we keep celebrating music no matter what, playing monster tunes by the likes of DJ Shadow, Dam-Funk, Kaytranada, Champion, James Blake, and the new reference on your favourite label, Forastero.
Like many of their friends, the Soleado Brothers are still trying to get over the loss of His Purple Majesty. We asked some of those friends to give us their favourite Prince tune. To see who picked which and why, check GladysPalmera.com (in Spanish).
While the truckloads of stories about the never ending greed of our rulers have us living in a state of constant amazement, Soleado keep on playing choice tunes, this week by people like Fumaça Preta, Tim Maia, J Dilla, White Denim, and Benga.
