Episode 13 of This Is Not Happening stays in NYC with Skyzoo's new album All The Brilliant Things following up the 70s palette of St Vincent: Daddy's Home. The much-respected Brooklyn MC's 7th album finds him writing a paen to his changing city, gentrification and history. It's a beguiling work that Nolan brought to us get deep on as we move into season 2 of the podcast. There's playlists that run alongside the episode here.
In the second half of the episode, we talk tracks of the summer, with a favourite from us that reminds of us the warm months. Our longlist is here, see what we thought of the picks:
David - The Millennium - To Claudia On Thursday
Joey - Clive Field Marshall - Island In The Sun
Guy – Metronomy - The Bay
