Shfl Update, 1/5
Joe Muggs on the Balearic aesthetic, plus new recommendations from Sasha Frere-Jones and Nate Patrin
Happy New Year everybody! I hope everyone has a great one. We’ve got some good stuff in this first newsletter of the year, it’s small but it’s meaty, and if you missed the Best of 2022 edition check that out.

Sasha Frere-Jones has a big pile of new recommendations
Nate Patrin on George McCrae, Big Star, The Jackson 5 and Kool & the Gang
