Stream Baby Stream: The Cherry Thing

The Cherry Thing, the surprising album from vocalist Neneh Cherry and free-jazz trio The Thing (Mats Gustafsson on saxophones, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on bass, Paal Nilssen-Love on drums) will be released by Smalltown Supersound on June 19th.

We listened to “Dream Baby Dream” and watched the video for “Accordion,” and now, thanks to NPR’s First Listen series, we can stream The Cherry Thing in its entirety.

If you like what you hear, you might also enjoy Four Tet’s “Dream Baby Dream” remix.

My full review of The Cherry Thing will appear in our August issue. And there's good news for digital music fans: WAV and FLAC versions of the album will be available from the awesome people at

This very well might be the best record of the year. I can't wait for the vinyl to drop on 24 July.
