  13. :)!

    ENNIO THE LITTLE BROTHER – Talcum Powder (!)
    FENNE LILY – What’s Good (!!)
    FINN ANDERSON – Some Days (!!!)
    SILENT CITIES – Cave Paintings (!)
    WREKIT88 – Glorious (!)

    If only I had one more:
    THE KING’S PARADE – Haze

    I liked very much the match of message, vocals, arrangement and lyrics of Finn Anderson’s SOME DAYS and it’s “… Does anybody want to bear this weight with me? …” evoked Jesus on his way to Golgotha … sitting in a nutshell on his flight across the Mediterranian Sea … “… done to the least of my brothers …”

    Fenne Lily’s vocals – Ohrenschmaus! :) soothing, and she presented the lyrics in addition – appreciated by a non-native speaker who could follow much easier while listening.

    Ennio The Little Brother’s TALCUM POWDER again storytelling at it’s best and rhytm, poetry and all these stuff it needs – thoughtfully arranged. Is there a field recorded crow?

    Strong week. My five votes go to

    BARON & BYRNE – Don’t Call Me Calm
    BETHAN LEES – Water and Wine
    FINN ANDERSON – Some Days

    But I also thought the JKLMNO, SAM LEOH, VICTORY KICKS, DR NANCY+THE MEDICINE PROJECT, SPEAKMANSOUND and FENNE LILY tunes were also pretty good. The LOW ISLAND track is perhaps my favourite, but it’s already going to be in tonight’s BBC Introducing Mixtape – see http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/introducing/tags/introducing-mixtape
