It's time to let some soothing tunes waft through the air – something like the gospel-soul-blues hybrid from musical alchemist Mavis Staples.

Oh hello there, frankie friend! It’s a rather nice afternoon, don’t you think? Prime time for popping the kettle on to boil, settling back into your comfiest chair and letting some soothing tunes waft through the air – something like the gospel-soul-blues-rock hybrid from musical alchemist Mavis Staples.

If you’re not familiar with Mavis’s work, you might like to grab a copy of frankie issue 65 (available in our online store) and have a read of our chitchat with the R&B legend. In Livin’ On A High Note – her 14th studio album, no big deal – she teams up with names like Tune-Yards, M Ward, Neko Case and Nick Cave to bring us a record full of joyful ditties.

Cool news: we have eight copies of the album to give away! Not only that, but they’re signed by the great Ms Staples herself. To enter the draw, just email us your name and address – or you could grab a copy of the album here if you’re feeling extra keen. Good luck!
