Whirled Peas Café Radio Playlist: October 4th, 2010

Musical Comfort Food with a World of Spice

Sorry this stayed in draft form on the blog way too long. This week I explored the new-to-me sounds of Belleruche.  As serendipity has a habit of doing, I started noticing a buzz in other locations including this article done by NPR: Belleruche: Electronica Gets the Blues.  The group consists of three band members: Ricky Fabulous | Kathrin DeBoer | DJ Modest. They are based in the UK and have a unique way of blending electronica with jazz and grounding it with blues. Joss Stone was new to at least one of my listeners, so I included one of her videos in the mix here. If the playlist looks a bit long, it is because I was still doing the extended version on the show due to James’ vacation and the vacuum left by “Dude, Where’s My Coffee?” got filled with some of my favorite female vocalists. I encourage you to check out Belleruche for yourself. I have yet to hit a bad track.
