9 October 2022
The 7th day is one to be lazy, to relax, to walk in slow-mo
from your bed to your couch, to have a glass of wine and
to listen to musings/reveries/ballads that massage your
ears and mind gently.
Turn Up The Volume picked 10 new musings
to create the fitting atmosphere for a blissful trance.
1. ‘Glide’ by PAUL WELLER
Lovely ballad of his 2018 album True Meanings
2. ‘Isn’t That What Jimi Said? by CAESAR SPENCER
New track by Paris-based singer/songwriter. An ode to
the late giant guitar hero Jimi Henrdix. His debut album
Get Out Into Yourself comes out on 4 November.
3. ‘The Strangle Of Anna’ by THE MOONLANDINGZ (Sheffield UK)
Featuring Fat White Family’s vocalist Lias Saoudi and Rebecca Lucy Taylor (Self Esteem).
Murder ballad from 2017 debut longplayer Interplanetary Class Classics.
