Fasman’s Finds – Mr. Fingers

Fasman’s Finds is our column from Rebecca Fasman (intrepid record nerd, DJ, and curator at the Kinsey Institute) in which she shares what she’s listening to and why. 

Larry Heard, aka Mr. Fingers (among other monikers), is a legendary Chicago house DJ, producer, and musician. He’s been steadily making music for decades, and he just released the first of a series of EPs of unreleased music spanning his entire career. This first release has Ron Wilson singing over a deep house track that gets wildly meditative the more you listen. The entire EP is a testament to Heard’s numerous musical contributions – the tracks are all clean, unfold beautifully, and hold both joy and darkness as resonant and complementary forces.

The B-Side: sock jock

Welcome to The B-Side, our column where we bring you a bonus song to check out, fall in love and live happily ever after with.

We just had our first real snowfall of the year here at Postcard Elba HQ, so how timely is this little piece of audio sunshine? “you” by sock jock is a perfect jangle pop tune that takes us back to the days of carefree, sundress with combat boots wearing 90’s. sock jock’s voice and approach to melody harken back to Harriet Wheeler of The Sundays, which is a sound always welcome at PE, regardless of the weather.
