This week’s essential tunes on the OTR jukebox. Please feel free to add your own selections below.

Various “Township Funk” (New State)

Dashing compilation of South African house, or Kwaito, featuring deep, audacious tunes from Mogrigo, MZO Bullet and DJ Mujava.

Glasser “Ring” (True Panther)

One of the standout acts at Manchester’s In the City festival, Glasser’s debut is chockablock with icy, tribal electropop gems.

Spectrals “Extended Play” (Moshi Moshi)

Another In the City hit, we’re digging Louis Jones’ lovely woozy doo-wop throwbacks, jangling garage sounds and old-fashioned tunes.

Prepare to be dazzled by this lovely album of jazz standards and new tunes from the peerless Wyatt with violinist Stephen, sax-player Atzmon and others.
