Friday mixtape

My first post exclusively on this site.

George Szirtes plays Billie Holiday and reads Frank O’Hara’s “The Day Lady Died” – both sublime.

Mick Hartley celebrates the great Earl Scruggs and LD lowers the stacks for Jim Marshall.

Stuart plays Big Joe Turner.

Eight releases from the Linear Obsessional netlabel.

Metal Jew says boycott Koby IsraelitePunk rock in an age of repression.

New music on the shelf. Dutch funk with a strong groove: The Soul Scratchers.

Bruce Springsteen as bar mitzvah entertainer (via D Minor). And some Mizrahi musician cards.

Heavy cumbia from Chuck. A girl and her birds from Richard.

The Motel at the edge of time.
