This week on Bubble Wrap, we enjoyed the varied pleasures of Heartscore, Rainer Maria, Colaars, P.SUS, and Norma Jean, among many others. It was a veritable panoply of pop and funk.
The Steely Dan tribute continued in cover form with Nik Hunt’s version of “Do It Again” and a radio edit of “Show Biz Kids” by Rickie Lee.
Four Tet and GbV have new music out. We heard “Planet” and “Steppenwolf Mausoleum” respectively. Really enjoyed the cheekily Beatlesque Plants from Surrey, UK and blissful 60s pop-rockers Brian Just from (of all places) Minneapolis. Speaking of Minneapolis, we’re still enjoying the Purple Rain era rarities and b-sides recently released, unleashing “Wonderful Ass” on our unwary listeners.
I’m never sure if I should like Dent May but in the case of his new track, “Picture On A Screen,” I do. (If there was a micro-theme to tonight’s show, it was “The Sixties.”)
Read on for the full play list.
