That Fuzzy Feeling – Tevo Howard – The Age Of Compassion – Buzzin’ Fly

This week I was struggling to find a tune of the week until, just before the recording deadline, this one popped into my inbox. It’s a beautiful slice of well-produced, modern, steely, atmospheric house music. It doesn’t do much but it does just enough to give you a tingling feeling, which is what the tune of the week is all about.

Out Getting Ribs
This week’s Strings, Wood and a Box of Air features new solo talent Zoo Kid, aka Wesley’s mate Archie, with his first 7″ single. Archie writes songs about growing up in south west London channeling the spirit of Joe Strummer into the 21st Century.
