Phonic FM – 6/8/23

New from Joanna Eden, Brazilian pianist songwriter Ivan Lins, Gotta Street Park, Eje Eje, Billie Eilish from Barbie (which is fun and thought-provoking and well worth seeing – as is Oppenheimer, minus the fun part!), K Trap x Mathandos, 2 from the Divine Ms Jane Birkin (pictured) who I had the pleasure of working with a few years ago, and who I found to be a genuinely honest, humble, sensitive, hard-working and committed campaigner and activist as well as being the nicest artist I have ever worked with. May she RIP.

Solo Paul McCartney from his first post-Beatles album (known as “cherries”), ’revised’ by The Reflex, 2 x Duke Ellington from Charlie Watts and Jazz Jamaica All Stars (with a ska version of “Caravan”), new from J Hus, more from the new Little Simz, Congolese classic from Tabu Ley Rochereau and MBilia Bel, 2 from Roberto Roena in Fania Flashbacks.
