notes: tomorrow is the last day of playitasitlathes. it was my new year’s resolution to post a jam from vinyl every weekday of 2013 and i never missed one. the amount of response this project received kinda blew my mind— a sincere and heartfelt THANKS to every guest selector for lending their talents and an even bigger THANKS to anyone who ever found something nice on here. i’ll keep the existing download links alive for another 6 months so folks can continue to grab stuff. you can stay up with me on the twitters (@turquoisewisdom) and on the soundclouds- this one is just me and this one is me and elijah. loads of new mixtapes and other various projects coming very soon. please stay in touch…
album: o’ mundo ka bu kaba
label: black power
notes from guest selector elijah wood: dj fitz opened the door to the sounds of the late 70s/early 80s cape verde to zach and i in london and i immediately began searching for these illusive records. this is one of my favorites.
notes from guest selector elijah wood: i first discovered their singles collection and haven’t been able to shake this song since. sounds like a lost pastiche of spy film music. if only it were longer.

notes: happy xmas, dudes.
artist: paul mccartney
notes from guest selector elijah wood: apparently the first song to be recorded for mccartney II to test his equipment, hence the title. this song feels incredibly ahead of it’s time. mccartney II is worth a visit as a whole. odd, funky bedroom record. (thank you, danielle)
