Opening Theme: Eilen Jewell | Radio City | Queen Of The Minor Key

1. Edwin Hawkins Singers | Oh Happy Day | Let Us Go Into The House Of The Lord
- Edwin Hawkins, who was the leader and arranger of this song and group, passed away on Jan 15th, aged 74. This was released as a single in 1968 and was a rare crossover hit in the Gospel genre. This arrangement was extremely influential and features the extraordinary vocals of Dorothy Combs Morrison.
2. Pastor T.L. Barrett & The Youth For Christ Choir | Like A Ship... (Without A Sail) | Like A Ship... (Without A Sail)
- Continuing the gospel with a funky groove, this is taken from a one-off gospel album released in 1971 and later reissued by Light In The Attic records in 2010.
3. Khruangbin | Two Fish And An Elephant | The Universe Smiles Upon You
- I just got introduced to this Houston band this week and they're fantastic. This is from their 2015 debut album but their 2nd album comes out next week.

- This is from their 7th album which was released last year.

8. Goat | It's Not Me | Requiem
- Taken from their 2016 album.
9. Sand Pebbles | Dream Chant | Morning Of The Earth Reimagined

12. The Posies | Solar Sister | Frosting On The Beater
