Jennifer Warnes - First We Take Manhattan Oh god no. I like my satin 80s overproduced pop, but not this.
The Emotions - Best Of My Love - MAGIC FM
Thundercat - Show You The Way I REALLY LIKED THIS.
Sons And Daughters - Johnny Cash BUT NOT THIS ONE.
Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons - So Young - Pardon? -
Caesars - Jerk It Out - Toe-tapping but I'm not going to listen to it again.
Big Daddy Kane - Ain't No Half-Steppin' TOKEN HIP HOP ALERT
Elliott Smith - Son Of Sam Not for me.

1. Crash Course in Science - Cakes in the Home - Good start. I like this sort of thing.
2. Moses Mchunu – Qhwahilahle - This sounded a bit Irish to me. Like Soweto meets the Chieftains. Not for me.
3. Elvis Presley – Night Life - Yes
4. Hoger Czukay – Fragrance - YES MATE
5. Dee Edwards – Why Can’t There be Love - I liked this a lot. A bit token Soul/funk though.
6. Julian Bream – Lute Concerto in D major, A. Vivaldi - Why not. I'm not a Vivaldi fan, but kudos for giving it a go.
7. Dalek – Praise be the Man - I liked this - fairly experimental and not tokenistic as in referencing 90s hiphop.
8. House of Freaks – White Folk's Blood - Never heard of it. Not my thing.

Well, A is its own thing. I liked the Thundercat (I keep meaning to listen to them) and that was about it. But fair play for ploughing its own furrow.

I like the experimentation and boldness of B. It is not afraid to be bold and I salute it for that. The token hip-hop track wasn't obvious, there is Classical, a great bit of Holger, some weirdness and a bit of Elvis. I doubt it'll go further but what the hell.

Blimey, you know things are bad when you hear a generic rock track like that Sons and Daughters one, and are grateful that it doesn't sound like it was recorded entirely in velour and beards. It almost fooled me into thinking it was ok.

"Cakes in the Home" is rubbish, reminds me a bit of The Lemon Kittens, but how refreshing to hear something outside the BCB comfort zone. Hoger Czukay appears to be the much less talented brother of Holger. In the end, though, B is the clear winner, because it doesn't sit in funk/soul and 70s rock comfort, makes an effort, so hats off to ya.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
