    Beginner amp advice

    This one in the classifieds might suit. https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/259673-fs-nad-c355bee-stereo-intergrated-amplifier-brisbane/ I agree with @Snapper() that Cambridge is pretty ordinary. Not sure about the NAD I linked to but I’m sure some regulars will have an idea.

    Tidal new feature - My mix

    I have 3 mixes and no grandpa Beatles,Stones Chicago crap showing up so that’s good. Although Jay Z sneaked Paul McCartney’s latest into one of my lists, must have been a Kanye algorithm.

    Whose Hat is This? Everything's Going to Be OK Tedeschi Trucks alumni and friends live. Really enjoying it. Should point out the music is nothing like Tedeschi Trucks. More info here: https://www.whosehatisthis.com/about/

    BBC3 have a live set from the London Jazz Festival up for a month. Avishai Cohen Trio celebrating Gently Disturbed, feat. Avishai Cohen, Shai Maestro and Mark Guiliana, in concert at the London Jazz Festival https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0001hp7 Not my usual cup of tea but a nice set and Guiliana is always worth listening too.

    Aussie Hip-Hop

    The Spotify Aussie hip hop playlist is definitely worth following. Updated regularly with new releases etc. I’m off to see Genesis Owusu and Remi over the next week or so. I think Remi is top notch. I’ve seen him live a few times now and never disappoints, builds a great vibe in the room without any sexist bullshit. Great voice and talented lyricist/mc. There’s lots of great talent giving voice to the reality of contemporary Australia at the moment. Sampa, Manu Crook$, Allday, Baker Boy (best live show I’ve seen in an age), Briggs etc. Get out there and support them.

    Beer: "proof that God loves us"

    I was lucky enough to be at the brewery a few weeks ago. Did a flight and settled on a Coastin’ IPA. They had just won an award for it a week before. Milk Stout was delish too. In the flight: Mt Eureka pilsener, Coastin IPA, Keep Calm and Carrion XPA, Double Cream Milk Stout.

    Another spin from yesterday’s delivery. Albert Mangelsdorf Quintet recorded after a trip to the east in 1964. Of it’s time with those early Euro jazz/world fusion but it’s a light touch on this album which owes more to Mingus than any Asian influences. Beautifully recorded with superb playing and arranging.

    Fresh delivery today and now spinning. Needs a clean, to get rid of the paper sleeve static.

    The Underrated David Sylvian (Ex Japan)

    Sylvian's Samadhi label reissued it a few years ago on CD. Probably discontinued. Check out Discogs.

    The Underrated David Sylvian (Ex Japan)

    The singer Thomas Feiner did a very moody album a few years ago called the Opiates with a band called Anywhen. Has one of my favourite songs, Scars and Glasses. Classic sad boy cryrock.

    I saw and heard this Croft at Geoff's last weekend. Beautiful sound and great value. He's a gent to boot. Buy with confidence.
