Welcome to the second weekly digest of music from the Gobe office of filters and dreams. A little sojourn through the soundtracks of our collective minds with a mix of newly released magic and some forever listenable favourites. Gobe radio lives here, and you can find Gobe Radio #2 right here.
I have to start with Gurrumul and the album Djarimirri (Child of the Rainbow). Gurrumul, an incredible and important indigenous artist, speaks his native Yolŋu tongue over an enchanting audial landscape of orchestral strings and horns. The entire album from start to finish is incredible, and a celebration of an artist who pushed creative ideas right up until his passing shortly after the completion of this work. There’s just a little taste in here but you should definitely enjoy the rest.
The rest of this weeks best is complimented by Van Morrison, Jack Ladder and the rising stars of Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever amongst others. At some point, I was reminded how much I love Neneh Cherry and that’s where we leave you.
From Arnhem Land to Brazil with a brief stop somewhere between Mali and Reims, please enjoy Gobe Radio #2. A playlist by us, for you.
