Another crazy night of dubwise fun in the Echo Chamber… Kicking things off with the choice new JBB in Dub from John Brown’s Body on Easy Star. This was followed by Lord Hissayas’ excellent “Nazirites Sounds vol. 1” on KingDub/Nazirites. Also new tonight: the tasty Orangewood Sessions 7” EP from Relaxo; the cool new “Sumud” album from Niyaz (Six Degrees); Diabel Cissokho’s “Kanabory Siyama” on World Village; Morgan Heritage’s new “The Return” (on VP); “The Observer in the Star House” from The Orb & Lee Scratch Perry; and “Easy Star’s Thrillah”.
Crime of Passion, by Mary Higgins Clark. A My Gal Sunday mystery recorded at the International Mystery Writers’ Festival in 2008. The Machine, by Head and Leg, from their album, In Your Dreams. Spoken word and musical ambience.
Miss Emily stops by for the first hour of Radio Antilles this week and Johnny D takes the second hour. Emily celebrates Amy Winehouse’s birthday with a set of covers Amy did of ska songs. Listen for some soul, afrobeat and neo-soul tracks, as well!
