Bubble Wrap radio featured another batch of new tunes from around the country and the world including Blackpink, AlaskaAlaska, and Trina South. Also on tap — historic Disney park audio rarities, funk, go go, and a killer version of Benny and the Jets by Master Plan.
Real Terms – Digging all the way back to 2017 for this one. Vaguely Malkmusian but unquestionably British. Worth resurrecting.
Please – Still Dreaming. Late 60s pop band from Britain. This track could be covered today and still work nicely. As it is, old instruments and recording give it away.
Blackpink – Ok, this is the K-Pop band that’s going to finally crack the US market, so they say. I still have my money on Red Velvet, but Blackpink are cute too.
Son Volt – While Rome Burns. There’s nothing I don’t like about Jay Farrar, but this track is just a little too obvious for me. And anyway, is it Rome we’re burning?
AlaskaAlaska – Moon. I expected to be underwhelmed by this track, but it turned out not to be the EDM I was expecting. As it is, it has just enough quirks to keep it interesting. From Belgium.
Sleeper – Atomic. Remember Sleeper? Me either. This cover is so faithful, you’ll swear it’s Blondie.
Trina South – Kamba Nyo. Excellent hip hop track from Zambia, taking a different and more feminine approach to the genre.
