The Smashing Tunes Thread


The oldest song on my music player but still one of the best.

Hank Williams - I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry


One of the auld lads favourite songs & artists. He would drive me mad back in the old days, turning off the telly to listen to Hank & Co. on Midwest Radio every Saturday night, but on reflection, he probably had better taste in music than I had.


I was listening to some north african music this morning on the radio in the car, didn’t catch the artists name as the fucking phone rang. But I am intrigued every time I hear music from that region. Do any of you have knowledge of music from Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, that kind of environs and suggest some artists I should listen to?


Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile - Fear is like a forest


The The - This is the Day



Smashing bit of Afrobeat here. William Onyeabor Ride on Baby.





Check out the former blog turned record label Awesome Tapes from Africa. Should be something there. Perhaps. I used to be a regular visitor to the blog 10 year ago or so.
