July 2020 — “tnp”

Published / by kozj_6ta8tp / Leave a Comment

I listened to a lot of music this month, most of which is not in this mix. Key among the songs that inspired it, but are not here, is “Pig Feet” by Terrace Martin with features from Denzel Curry, Daylyt, Kamasi Washington, and G Perico. The Quietus’ “Albums of the Year So Far” was a big influence as well. It led me to Jeff Parker, whose NTS guest show led me to Eugene McDaniels.  Outlaw and Headless Heroes of the Apocalypse are both great in the same way that late-1960s Scott Walker is great.

H/t to other NTS shows this month including Scary Things and Mount Kimbie.

Tracklist:

1) “America” — Sufjan Stevens – America
2) “Sagittarius Red” — Eugene McDaniels — Outlaw
3) “The Bigger Picture” — Lil Baby — The Bigger Picture
4) “Cliche” — Jeff Parker — The New Breed

7) “Freeze Tag (feat. Kamasi Washington & Phoelix)” — Terrace Martin, Robert Glasper & 9th Wonder — Dinner Party
8) “Surf & Turf” — Boldy James & The Alchemist — The Price Of Tea In China
9) “Enough!!” — A Tribe Called Quest — We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service
10) “Summerhouse” — Kota the Friend — EVERYTHING
11) “Shippūden” — Blanco — Shippūden
12) “Lies” — Terrace Martin — Sinthesize
13) “It Is What It Is” — Thundercat — It Is What It Is
14) “I Know The End” — Phoebe Bridgers — Punisher
15) “myheartHURT.” — Pink Siifu — NEGRO

This started its life as “May pt. 2,” now it might be “June pt. 1,” or it might just be “June.” I made it, disconnected, with the winter solstice in view. I just bought a grill and now I stand outside in the dark at 6pm, grilling things, listening to this.
