Thanks to Eliza Gilkyson:http://www.elizagilkyson.com, who took time out to talk with me before coming up for the Red House Records 25th Anniversary concert, and to Ben Glaros:http://www.benglaros.com, who came in early to play live and talk about not only his solo record, but new music adventures with the Middle States and 16 Strings Trio. Check the playlist for new music, including Loreena McKennit, Femi Kuti, and Calexico.
Another typical Echo Chamber mix of roots, dub, and eclectic fun. Brand new dub from Volfoniq; Eating Betty’s excellent new Every Spoil a Dub; the latest roots classic Jah Is Real from Burning Spear; the fine new Nostradamus album from Winston McAnuff; a new Lucky Dube restrospective (on Ryko); and the cool
roots vibe of See-I’s Mean Joe Green.
