Tonight we debuted the excellent new ROIR release from Darryl Jenifer (bassist of Bad Brains) called In Search of Black Judas. This post-apocalyptic, subterranean dub album would be in good company with the best productions from Adrian Sherwood, the Wordsound collective, and DJ Spooky at his dubbiest. Other new releases included the rootical “Heart So Cold” from the Reggae Bubblers, as well as new stuff from Clinton Fearon, Victoria Moralez (the cool “Keep On Moving”), Mojo Morgan (“Million $ Check”), Missin Red, Chico Mann, and Lionyard.
