Fatoumata Diawara - "Son Conlo"

Gilles Peterson is always on point. So when he makes a recommendation on Twitter, it's worth looking out for the artist in question.

Fatoumata Diawara is a Malian-born artist whose debut album, Fatou, will be out on World Circuit in September. For now, enjoy "Son Conlo" and check out her EP, Kanou.

My Tiger My Timing - Endless Summer

Every summer has its share of blissful pop tunes that make you wish you owned a convertible so you could pump them while cruising down the highway.

London's My Tiger My Timing have a song just perfect for said convertible (though I didn't think driving with the top down was a big thing in the UK).

Coincidentally, it's called "Endless Summer" and it's the title track to their new EP, available on their Bandcamp page.

So effing good.

Frank Turner - Live at the West End, October 22, 2011

Mark your calendars now because the punk Billy Bragg (I know, I know, Bragg is pretty punk in his own right...) is coming to town. Frank Turner will play the West End Cultural Centre on October 22nd. I don't know if the Weakerthans will be in town, but he's apparently tight with them...

More on Frank here.
