From brand new releases, to the re-release of a classic, another program full of great dub and roots. New releases from: Vibronics; Citizen Sound; Trevor “The Technician” McKenzie (with Mika on vocals) and more…including Rihanna’s cover of “Redemption Song” for Haiti benefit. The classic re-release tonight: “Harder Shade of Black” (on Pressure Sounds).
Filling in for a busy Johnny D this week, Rocket Ship’s d.j. cozy little takes you around the world, from Jamaica (Glen Brown, Twinkle Bros.) to Brazil (São Paolo Ska Jazz, Sergio Mendez) to Russia (Cabernet Deneuve, St. Petersburg Ska-Jazz Review) to Australia (Jamaica’s Skatalites’ most recent!) to Japan (Little Tempo, Shiina Ringo) and beyond (International Observer)!
