New this week 4-10 March 2013

March. March was there, now it’s here. In the blink of an eye. And here we are again with an amazing playlist.

Searching for Sugar Man – LIVE

When Sixto Rodriguez recorded his debut album Cold Fact in 1969, he dreamed of pop stardom. But, far from the epicentre of the late ’60s folkie scene, the Detroit-based son of Mexican immigrants found that his defining statement was criminally overlooked. Over time though, Cold Fact was rediscovered in the strangest places, despite its fans […]
