Friday grab bag

Kid Loco is one of those artists who always escapes the knife when I'm pruning old music off my Nomad to make way for new stuff. Now at last we have new downtempo deliciousness: the soundtrack to The Graffiti Artist features eight untitled pieces by Kid Loco, several of which hold their own quite well beyond their function as movie score.

Kid Loco - Untitled 8

A very shiny compilation called Urban Upgrade came out recently, featuring the likes of RJD2, Gotan Project, RZA, LTJ Bukem, Roots Manuva remixed by Röyksopp, and this super standout track.

All Good Funk Alliance featuring Swamburger and Alexandrah - Where I Need to Be

And here's a nice creepy lullabye from Marcelo Radulovich, suitable for the next time you're babysitting Chucky. From the album 2 Brains.

Marcelo Radulovich - La Résurrection

These and other fine, fine tracks can be heard on Comfort Radio - the station that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. See you next week.

I love the "All Funk Alliance" track.

Thanks again!

Funk Alliance track great. Nice to hear hip hop vocals with a riddim that's different to the genre's norm and also being up-beat, gets the toes a-tappin'! Niceness.

And why the need for an email address for a little post? You wanna get hold of me? Doubtfull. Third submission aaargh.
