Here's Five: Bandcamp's Andrew Jervis Songs He's Got On Repeat

Here's Five: Bandcamp's Andrew Jervis Songs He's Got On Repeat

Wednesday 30th August, 2017 12:30PM

Bandcamp's Andrew Jervis will be landing on our shores in the next few days as one of the esteemed international speakers set to take part in this weekend's Going Global Music Summit. In his role as chief curator for the hugely popular music site, Jervis oversees label and artist outreach and helps bring in music from all around the world. In addition, he also hosts the Bandcamp Weekly show, combing through the site to present selections of the amazing new music available. So it's fair to say that the wells of his music knowledge run pretty deep. With that in mind we asked Jervis to share five songs that have surfaced this year and he's had on repeat...

1. Laetitia Sadier - 'Undying Love For Humanity'

Laetitia Sadier has one of those effortless voices that I could never grow tired of - If there were an option to change Siri’s voice to Laetitia Sadier I’d make that move. This lead song, from her latest album for Drag City, showcases her voice with a breezy Brazilian-leaning backdrop, and carries a message of inclusion and hope that we need right about now.

2. Lord Echo - 'The Sweetest Meditation' Feat. Mara TK

OK, I realise I’m playing to the gallery by picking a local here, but Mr Echo can put no foot wrong. While many have dabbled in the blending of soul, dub and club music, Lord Echo is a modern master of the ear worm. With a bit of a nod to funky jazz vibes-man Roy Ayers, “The Sweetest Meditation” is an irresistible summertime jam.

3. Nick Hakim - 'Bet She Looks Like You'

Nick Hakim’s well-chiseled debut album is a fantastic listen from top to bottom. You can tell he poured years of his life into making Green Twins, as he lays everything, from the heartfelt lyrics to the varied (but cohesive) styles, on the line. It’s hard to pick a fave, there are literally no dud tracks on an LP where his eccentric soul style meets jangly guitars and persuasive bottom end.

4. Hampshire & Foat - 'Galaxies Like Grains Of Sand'

Athens of the North spends most of its time emptying the wallets of fans of rare funk, old jazz and highly sought-after soul, like me. Occasionally they release something brand new, something a little unexpected. Galaxies Like Grains of Sand is both of those things - it’s the great British soundtrack to stargazing. When I recently upgraded my amp and speakers this was the first record to hit the deck. I highly recommend you get lost in this album.

5. Ivy Sole - 'Deep'

One of my favourite finds of 2017 is Philly-based Ivy Sole who puts her own spin on hip hop, poetry, and R&B. She paints great personal stories, switches gear from soul stress to MC smoother than a 911, and she does it all DIY style. This is my kinda underground hip hop.

This weekend's Going Global Music Summit is sold out!! However there are still tickets for the music showcase taking place on Saturday 2nd September across Whammy and Wine Cellar and featuring performances from Soccerpractise, Alien Weaponry, Estere, Silicon, Yukon Era, Ha The Unclear and more.
