Release Radar 6/3/22 – Bob Marley vs Papi Churro

Release Radar 6/3/22 – Bob Marley vs Papi Churro

This week we get a welcome new single from Jungle called “Good Times.” I still have their first album in my six-disc changer, and I can’t bring myself to take it out; it’s just that good.

It’s always great to see Bob Marley show up in Release Radar, especially when it’s a live track. “Get Up, Stand Up,” was recorded on June 1st, 1977 at the Rainbow Theatre and it finds Bob in a great mood.

Papi Churro and Saib team up to bring us this laid-back, Latin American jazz number, that exudes summer vibes. Saib has been on our #RADAR a lot these past six months, but we haven’t heard from Papi Churro too much. “Copa De Mare” is playlist worthy.

Goth Babe continues his streak of great singles with “Taking Over The Sun.” The simplicity of his surf-pop reels you in for more listens, each and every time.

Kula Shaker has returned with a new album, 1st Congregational Church Of Eternal Love (And Free Hugs). I’ll be honest, I had no idea these cats were still making music, but I’m impressed. This album sounds fresh and fun. I will be going back to this record regularly.

Your Jazz Cut Of The Week is “Montara,” by Kiefer with Luke Titus and Pera Krstajic. Man, this is some next-level elevator music that you hope never ends.
