You know who we didn't know about? Israeli singer, songwriter and musician Charlie Megira. As we've now mentioned a few times, Numero are reissuing his Da Abtomatic Meisterzinger Mambo Chic album, a heady amalgam of ’50s trash rock, surf-y tremolo, and reverb-drenched goth. We've been listening quite a lot today and reading about him, he was a fascinating guy.
We've highlighted a few reads.
+ Numero | "A Sun Shining Backwards" [Read More]
+ Listen | Da Abtomatic Meisterzinger Mambo Chic [Bandcamp]
+ PopMatters | "The Confounding Case of Charlie Megira" [Read More]

Still high on the fumes of Get Back, we are very much à la mode with The Beatles at the moment. Luckily, Eddie Robson's twitter thread about the famous 'drop T' logo popped up and we got totally caught up in his drum skin research. Some really nice design notes and he poses some cool questions about bands, logos and icons that start their own little threads.

Alongside the weekly playlist of new and old tracks, all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist. With renewed 2022 zeal, we'll be updating it every Friday with new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
You can subscribe to it via our Spotify public profile, here.
Have a great rest-of-weekend.
