The Usual Suspects

March 9th, 2018 · Posted by Skuds in Music · No Comments · Music

I spent a large part of today listening to The Usual Suspects by Jah Wobble & The Invaders of the Heart on Spotify. If you like dub basslines with krautrock and world music influences then I can’t recommend this highly enough. Apart from those juicy basslines, there is also some brilliant-sounding drumming on it. The album came out last year and somehow I missed it, but I’m making up for that now.

I am still finding Spotify great for discovering stuff that I would otherwise not have heard, a lot of which becomes a firm favourite – like Public Service Broadcasting, Information Society, Jane Weaver and Sleaford Mods. I have lost count of the times I have come across something that is years old but totally passed me by at the time – like Cymande.

And let’s be honest, if I was relying on buying CDs, listening to the radio, and getting recommendations from the music press I really doubt I would have ever heard Les Ogres de Barback or all those German punk bands.

But for all those obscure delicacies, I see that the top five artists I have listened to in the last month includes Motorhead and Bananarama. MAybe I just like living in the past.
