Stevie Wonder

Tomorrow I’m starting a journey to Glastonbury. The day after Glastonbury I embark on a transatlantic tour the likes of which Kerouac could never have dreamed of (well, Las Vegas and Florida). As such, this blog may have to take a little downtime as I doubt I’ll have extended access to a computer for a little over a month. So I’m going to post tracks by lots of the artists I’m looking forward to seeing next weekend as a sort of temporary swansong(s). Until next we meet.

The xx – Fantasy (YSI)
Snoop Dogg – Drop It Like It’s Hot (YSI)
Mos Def – Auditorium feat. Slick Rick (YSI)
Stevie Wonder – Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours (YSI)
The National – Terrible Love (YSI)
Mountain Man – How’m I Doin’ (YSI)
Wild Beasts – The Devil’s Crayon (YSI)
Midlake – Roscoe (YSI)
Tom Williams & The Boat – Wouldn’t Women Be Sweet (YSI)
Meursault – One Day This’ll All Be Fields (YSI)

I’m getting worse and worse eh? Struggling along with uni work, I seem to be pushing blogging aside somewhat, but I promise I’ll get better! For now, here’s a slice of joyous soul genius from the Wonder himself. I’m not sure there’s ever been a genre better named than soul – when you hear tracks like this, you can just tell every note is coming straight from inside the artist, being let loose, and sometimes there’s just no better way than to scream your heart out.

Stevie Wonder – Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours) (YSI)

And, just because it’s brilliant and has the same word involved, here’s some proper hip-hop:

Eric B. & Rakim – I Know You Got Soul (YSI)
