This first post had to be a shout out to WalterCronkTight and D-Man – two favorite Cape Town brus who shared great tunes and more than a few bottles of whiskey with me one long ago semester abroad. Here’s to that perfect Penrose playlist and heady summer nights out on Long Street.
Still is an old favorite, picked up somewhere by chance, downloaded and first played one too many times on a particularly grey bus ride to Boston. It’s held up over the years, eery and surprising – though what I still love most is the quiet, trouble-making coolness of it, the concentrated way it swerves and seduces. If it feels like it’s over far too quickly, you’re totally right.
