Starting out the program tonight with a heavy slab of dub: a white label vinyl pressing of great new dubs from Pale Rider! This was followed by new releases from All India Radio, Kabir La Amlak, Scratch DVA, Bruce Kaphan, Chico Trujillo, and The Defendants (Dr. Echo).
Lots of new music this morning, including Jace Everett, Gotan Project, and Janelle Monae. We had a week off from the Roe Family Radio Round-Up, but it will be back next Tuesday at 7:45am. Check the playlist for the rest of the June 1st flow…
Mixing it up as usual in the Echo Chamber with tons of new stuff… The new releases included material from Ganga (on the Nootempo label); Dr. Echo & the Defendants; the Dubbhism projects Baldhead Voodoo Plan and D.E.A.D.; Richard & I; Citizen Sound; Chico Trujillo (on Barbes); Isiah Mentor (from the “Dennis Brown Tribute – V.2”); the Black Exorcist; and two selections from the “Revolutionary Dub Vibrations Chap. 2” compilation.
Our guest this morning spoke about making machines out of traditional percussion instruments, then creating a glove he can use as a remote control for his mechanized musical ensemble.

We also heard new Tracey Thorn, Rachid Taha, and The Very Best as they got ready to play the Cedar Cultural Center:http://www.thecedar.org that night.
