This month’s show is a tapestry woven around Pat Thomas’s Listen, Whitey: The Sights and Sounds of Black Power, 1965-1975 – a superbly illustrated book and tie-in cd, full of searing 60s soul and inflammatory polemic (well, the honkeys were worried). See the blog post for full details, but also adding to the flow are new (old) releases from the Tindersticks and Lee Hazlewood, and beautiful new records from the likes of Mirrorring (spelt with two rrs on the lp anyhow), Damien Jurado and Sean McCann and Matthew Sullivan, among others.
