By listener request: Os Mutantes, both studio recording and live. And it's a Milktrain to Paydirt for armchair Knights in Cracked Leather eagerly awaiting (and trying to figure out how to pronounce) Super Bowl XLIX.

Some great new releases tonight, plus celebrating the birthday of the late great King Tubby. Kicked off the birthday party with the excellent new Dub Syndicate “Hard Food” album. The album was nearly complete when the great Style Scott was senselessy murdered late alst year. This was followed by the very cool Ethiopian flavored “Labyrinth” album (on Dubophonic) from Tzelalot; the excellent “Keep Planting Seeds” album (on Irie Vibrations) from Martin Zobel & Soulrise; and the fine “Gappy Ranks meets Dub Club” release (on Stones Throw). More new music from 11 Acorn Lane, L&S SymfHoney, Cool Prestige, El Bib ( from the “Dub Bibliotheque vol. 1” compulation on Svaha Sound), E.N Young, New Kingston, Sub Hero, Ruffi Ann, 2NE1, and Bob Marley & the Wailers (from the “Easy Skanking in Boston ’78” CD/DVD release). Filled out the show with some Tubby dubs and more great stuff from the likes of Tangerine Dream (in memory of Edgar Froese), Lee Scratch Perry, Kalya Scintilla, Clinton Fearon, Marcia Aitken & Trinity, David “Fathead” Newman, Roots Tonic meets Bill Laswell, Black Market Brass, YesKing, and more…
