So far the J.V.C. F.O.R.C.E in match 1 is a winner.

That's probably why they picked it.

'Free From The City' by The Poppy Family (in match 2) was lovely. I'd like to hear more of this.

Although it's not a new track for me, I agree The Poppy Family's 'Free From The City' is great.
In terms of stuff that is new I really like the Nicolas Jaar track from list A in match seven.

On paper, it's right up my street...strident title, left-leaning, foreign language.
As it turns out, it's a bunch of wet noodle.
What do you guys hear in this track?!

You must remember when I bought this back in the 80's, we didn't have a lot of latin music to compare it to. Working Week used good players and this one had a certain lightness of touch. Nice rhythms and the right sentiment.
I wouldn't pick it myself, but it's nice seeing it in someone else's list. I preferred Weekend, their prior band, to Working Week though.

I once saw Working Week live, though this was after they'd recruited Juliet Roberts (Tracey Thorn sang the lead English-language female vocal on 'Vencemeros'). Like G, I didn't really have much in the way of Latin reference points at the time, but I enjoyed the evening, although they were then starting to pursue a more mainstream soul sound, as witnessed by the excellent 'Sweet Nothing' single.

I also agree with G that Weekend were the better band, largely because of the plaintive vocal of ex-Young Marble Giants singer Alison Statton, who added a very Cardiffian insouciance to the record.

Yes, I really liked that one as well.

I also liked The Jezabels, who I hadn't heard before.

...and I'd heard Nicholas Jaar's name mentioned elsewhere, but I'll check him out now. I liked that one.
