The goal of this week’s Bubble Wrap show was relaxation and joy. The new music was thin so we went with old stuff, for the most part. Excepting Bootsy, who is old and new at the same time — his new record just came out and, friends, he’s still got it. You will see. The new single is “Funktropolis.” Find it under Funk at your favorite record emporium.
When I say old, I mean earlier than this week. We replayed some faves from 2020: Cat Means Four, Happy Jade, Smead O’Brien, and Nilufer Yanya. It was fun hearing Poppy’s “I Disagree” again, from way back in January. We do too!
Found time for a couple tracks from the 1996 Headz compilation and one from Delakota’s stellar One Love from the same rough era. Twas a mini golden age of pop.
Read on for all the
filler fun-filled tracks.
