No longer in the realm of speculation, we are undeniably in 2018. People always have such high hopes for the new year that I think they must forget that January comes first, and that alone is normally enough to derail the great expectations of just about everyone.
It's not all doom and gloom though, a new month means a new episode of the SESHWYN PODCAST and this marks our return to the standard obscure music that we are so famed for. Episode 17 features more songs that you've never heard before plus a bonus tale of a trade agreement that's easily a better deal than Brexit...
The EVERYTING SESHWYN playlist has been updated once again with ten more gems meaning we're now roughly on par with the Tower of London. Don't worry my terrible jokes don't make it onto Spotify so subscribe on there to solely appreciate the music.
Hanra's random country pick came courtesy of a crazy Powerjazz track called 'Monokkel' from Estonian band Phlox. Searching for Phlox yields the flower well before the band, and whilst I'm no horticulturist, they must have had an impact well beyond their native Tallinn in order to have 67 species of perennial and annual plants in the Polemoniaceae family named after them.
Christy served up PoptartPete's laid back 'DontLetGo (MakeItAiight)' and whilst you may not know the moniker, you could well know the man behind the music.
PoptartPete is the the beat-making alias of Philly based skater Jamal Smith. When he's not skating for Palace, he's sampling old tracks and spinning them into some lofi hip-hop jawns. The guy may not be able to kickflip but he's clearly got a few more tricks up his sleeve.
If you're still engaged this far along, then the mythical arrival of the synths in Cape Verde that Christy mentioned is well worth a read, and perhaps a deeper listen.
Beyond that, you can go and hit up the @SESHWYN twitter account to see how the general public voted in our ultimate WHO WOULD WIN Grammy deathmatch. Plus we occasionally post songs there and generally self promote. What's not to love?
Thank you as always if you've made it this far, we're planning big things for 2018 so I hope you continue to stick around for the ride. See you in February.
