listening post 22/04/16

quick overview of what I’m jamming right now

rihanna – needed me

director harmony korine delivering an edgy, day-glo gangster flick within the constrains of a music video, rihanna perfectly enrapturing the frame. the song itself is all laid back bravado, and the drawn out chorus is utterly divine.

arthur russell – that’s us / wild combination

been listening to a lot of calling out of context, keep coming back to this mind-blowing and love-lorn track.

brenda lee – someday you’ll want me to want you

mad men s01e09

allen toussaint – big chief

looking forward to this toussaint comp coming next month on nonesuch.

skepta – man

goes without saying really. new london anthem.
