Our last podcast was of course a run down of our favourite records from 2014 and what with January tending to be a quiet month for music releases, we’ve been scouring the globe for all sorts of weird and wonderful sounds. In doing so, we struck a particular fondness for Funk, Jazz and African music and thought we’d put together a mix of our discoveries.
We started to notice Facebook streams of a new art project run by Tim Diagram called Tropical Gloom.
We decided to invite Tim to create the cover for our latest podcast, explaining the styles of music we were including in this show whilst we continued to build a playlist. The final podcast features a wide range of styles from exotic tropical sounds, jazz classics from the likes of Pharoah Sanders and Eddie Harris as well as Afro and Brazilian rhythms from Bixiga 70, Feqadu Amde-Mesqel and Pyramid Blue. Irregular Crates Podcast number 15 mirrors the warm, colourful artwork of Tropical Gloom perfectly.
