Gray Days and Gold March 2023

Hello, friends. Feeling great, feeling good…how are you? It’s another hour of the finest new music from artists who you’re probably not hearing on your radio, unless you live in some magical land where the radio isn’t a steaming pile of corporate garbage. Hand-picked, ad-free, no algorithms, no login or subscription required…just press play and enjoy. Among the usual eclectic mix there’s also a little appreciation of De La Soul, whose back catalog finally hit the streaming services this month and who, I’d contend, foregrounded musicality in their work more than any of their peers at the time. (Rest in Beats, Dave)

You can listen to this episode via the embedded player just below in this post—if you don’t see it, try turning off your ad-blocker then reloading the page—or on the Mixcloud website, via the Mixcloud mobile app, on your Sonos system, etc.

There’s also a more barebones iteration of this episode’s playlist (minus my commentary) on Spotify and Apple Music.
