Piran Café Tunes du Jour Playlist For The Week Of June 29-July 3, 2015

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!
