Nick Drake’s Northern Sky is our Song For Sunday. 2016 is no more as we break into a new year and hopefully more prosperous times. Northern Sky was a song on Nick Drake’s penultimate album before his untimely death in 1974. The song was a departure from his previous work. Unfortunately, his record label Island […]
Miles Davis’ In A Silent Way and It’s About That Time are our Song(s) for Sunday. We’ve flipped the script slightly this week by featuring two songs in one. These choices were inspired by Fredara Mareva Hadley’s Spotify playlist.
Rain Tree Crow’s Blackwater is our Song For Sunday. “Blackwater” was the only single from Rain Tree Crow’s eponymous album. Rain Tree Crow were better known as Japan and this would be their first and last album as a four-piece.
John Holt’s rendition of You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine is our Song For Sunday. A classic from my childhood.

Kamasi Washington’s Clair De Lune is our Song For Sunday. Taken from ‘The Epic’, released last May. Clair De Lune is my favourite classical composition and Kamasi stretches it in a similar fashion to Isaac Hayes when he transformed Dionne Warwick’s Walk On By.
Mark Pritchard aka Troubleman’s Change Is What We Need (Progress) is our Song For Sunday. So, we’re now into autumn. The days are still warm (in the UK at least) but eventually, the leaves will go brown, fall to the ground and you’ll be needing a coat, scarf and a cuffing partner. I felt this […]
Dreams Dreams from the NiGHTS into Dreams OST is our Song For Sunday. When a song knocks you for six the first time, there’s no stopping it the second, third or fiftieth time on repeat. Back in 1996, I got the chance to play one of the most enchanting video games ever. It was NiGHTS […]
Phonte & Eric Roberson’s It’s So Easy is our Song For Sunday. It’s been a very tough week in the US but fortunately, Phonte and Eric Roberson are at hand to shine a light on these dark times. It’s So Easy is the first single from their upcoming album, “Tigallerro”. It’s as smooth as eggs […]
