Listen of the Week: David Bowie

Blackstar by David Bowie

“Blackstar is a work of sonic extremity with only marginal relation to his past at all. Instead of finely turned songcraft, its seven long pieces rely for the most part on repetitive, open grooves predominantly inhabited by the writhing, abstract sax improvisations and furious jungle-esque drumming of Donny McCaslin’s jazz combo, Bowie’s accompanists throughout.”

In Preutopia, we decorate our Christmas tree listening to David Bowie intermingled with Christmas songs. The day David Bowie puts out new music – it’s a very special day.
