Listen: June 2020 Playlist

If the summer solstice signals the height of summer, our June Playlist is already there. While far-away destinations are off-limits, our latest musical line-up is guaranteed to transport you to paradise, even if you’re soaking up the sun within the comfort of your home. New favourites from Khruangbin and HAIM blend neatly into the dream-like, hazy sounds of José Feliciano, Shuggie Otis and the woefully overlooked early ‘70s funk group Cymande. And when things begin to heat up, skip ahead to upbeat Afrobeat tracks from Manu Dibango, the cult reggae duo Althea and Donna, and Dawn Penn’s dancehall masterpiece “You Don’t Love Me (No, No, No)” to soundtrack the long, hot summer.
