I’m just back from the Czech Republic, and I’ve been listening to the music of a young Moravian fiddler Petr Mička on the Indies label. He’s from Horňácko on the Slovak border, where the best Moravian music comes from.

Billy Bragg’s ‘Handyman Blues’: a country song about being hopeless at DIY.

I’ve been listening to Clinton Fearon’s latest album, Heart and Soul, which is the perfect soundtrack to these rare moments of sunshine we seem to be having.

Owiny’s Sigoma Band’s second album, Power Punch!!!, is yet another impressive release from Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label.
