A new track from an old friend this week, plus some tunes from the
rcrdlbl.com collection mixed up with the best of new independent
music wherever it comes from.
Suffolk and Savannah seem to be suffering the onset of autumn.
Jessie took great delight in the first decent rain for months in
her part of the Mediterranean. The aftermath left a great shading
to the usually blue and gold sea at sunset last night. Savannah is
the club/bar where she has been working since May and is right here
in the picture from the Ibiza sunset cam (right). Try here
for live pics.
One Rock - Jimmie Bratcher
Jimmie Bratcher has been providing the signature tune for Suffolk
'n' Cool for almost three years now so he should need little
introduction but it has been a while since he had any new tunes
available. In fact, the previous tunes went up onto the PMN in
November 2006. He also has a new album out to follow up on the very

"Peter, thanks a billion for

Bonus - Jayme Gutierrez
Another track from the solidly excellent album Wompychew
. I played Cats and Rats
back in April. You can
hear four other tracks at his MySpace.
I'm becoming interested in the way that remixes take a song and
transform it. Example:
This Truth - Lovespirals
Lovespirals blend Rock, Jazz, Blues, Soul, Folk and Electronica to
create a dreamy, sensual vibe featuring the smooth, soulful guitar
& Rhodes piano of Ryan Lum and the seductive vocals &
romantic lyrics of Anji Bee.
This Truth - Grooveblaster Mix
(N. Carolina, USA)
The Grooveblaster is living proof that the end justifies the means.
Whether it's going head-to-head on the ones and twos with
collaborators, riding the pause button on an old analog 4-track to
create a fly loop with the human factor, or keying in the ill echo
chamber chill, the Grooveblaster makes 'tricknology' work.
Many remixes available at http://www.lovespirals.com/podsaferemix

podcast has the same
problem.) I had a note of thanks from Izzie and reminder that she
has her own show which I'm now subscribed to and I hope you'll be
able to join me in enjoying at www.voodooquotashow.co.uk
Note from Kimo Watanabe

"What better way to close out the week than with a classic reggae
track. I just posted my version of No Woman No Cry and hope you
