Most of Selector Okunola’s picks have been works in the 1970s. Lucky for his ears and ours, a lot of folks have jumped on the retro-soul bandwagon lately, right? My beloved Raphael Saadiq’s recent works sound straight out of another decade, Amy Winehouse made it super popular awhile back, and Aloe Blacc holds a special place in my heart for his work. I especially love his intro to How To Make it in America but I’ve told you that already.
Turn it up. Happy Thursday!
