• Vibes: Reservation Dogs

    Mbithi: "We just borrow stardust until we die, and then we return it for something else to use." Reservation Dogs blends humour, satire and tragedy into a story of contemporary Indigenous American life.

  • Vibes: Orchestra Baobab's "Pirate's Choice"

    Blinky: Currently loving Pirates Choice by Orchestra Baobab (Spotify link). Old-sounding men are one of my favourite things, lol.
    Standout track: my favourite track right now is Werente Serigne.

  • Vibes: PinkPantheress

    Dan: I came across Pink Pantheress in an ad for the TV show Atlanta... Now she's on all my playlists. Mbithi: Man! Been really feeling her music for the past year. Love that she's revisiting genres that I listened to when I was her age. Garage, house and all. Love the energy. Long live the rave (that I never went to, and only saw on TV). Also, some of her songs are too short!

  • Vibes: Earl Sweatshirt in Conversation with Cheryl Harris

    Jim: I really enjoyed this very tender conversation on art, music and life between rapper Earl Sweatshirt and his mum, civil rights professor Cheryl Harris. Their relationship was quite turbulent back in 2011 when Odd Future were blowing up, and she decided to pull him out of the group...
  • Vibes: Station Eleven (Mini-series)

    Mbithi: Oh no, a show about a pandemic! Made before and during an actual pandemic!! You think you'd know what to expect, but Station Eleven surprised me with its humane and compassionate story about a bunch of people who are trying to survive and have found hope and life in art and stories..
  • Vibes: Magdalena Bay (and their songwriting livestreams)

    Dan: Magdalena Bay are a duo with a synth-heavy pop sound, and visuals that reference Windows ‘95 and ‘80s video aesthetics—so, a very 2020’s kind of band, but they do it so well!
