If you missed any of the past week’s Tunes du Jour, fear not, they’re all here in one playlist. Easy access. I’m here for you. Enjoy.
The lead photo? A saxophone player on the Pont des Arts, Paris on 07-07-07, eight years ago this week. I hope he’s doing well.
Monday June 29 – Mallee Songs – “Water”
Invigorating pop guitar sounds to kick your week into gear.
Tuesday June 30 – Mbongwana Star – “Shégué”
Barrier-busting sounds from the streets of Kinshasa fusing traditional Congolese sounds with electronica, psychedelia and post-punk.
Wednesday July 1 – Galina – “Pulse”
A dreamy midweek landscape with lots going on that still manages to live up to its “FlamencoChill” hash tag.
Thursday July 2 – Clearance – “You’ve Been Pre-Approved”
An earworm for Thursday.
Friday July 3 – The Foetals – “Fine”
Fun and smart retro.
Attention musicians, record labels or fans: Do you have a suggestions for a Tune du Jour?
Each weekday at noon Eastern Time Piran Café spotlights a new or recently released song from smaller or independent labels. Suggestions are most welcome and encouraged – get in touch. Please include press info about the song /album /artist, and links to video, audio or both.
CURRENT FOCUS: Since I’ll be based in Colombia through the latter half of August, I’d love to focus as much as I can during that time on artists from South America. As is obvious from this list, exceptions will always be made. Just trying to keep it local. Thanks!
