Lots of new stuff, pretty new stuff, and recent re-releases in the Echo Chamber this week. Among the new items – TheTechnician’s Tribute to Paulette Peterson Dub (#1), composed in loving memory of a friend and bandmate taken so very early in life, and the middle eastern dub sounds of FedayiPacha’s new The 99 Names of Dub (on Hammerbass).
We heard a lot of artists from upcoming tours this morning—outside of the usual mid-week concert run-down in the 8:00 hour. We heard from Rasputina, The Verve (as they issue a new record in the fall followed on by a UK tour that I hope crosses the pond!), Patti Smith, The Flaming Lips, and a mini-Winnipeg peek with Boom Pam, Los Lobos and That 1 Guy. I can’t wait to hear what Nathan thinks of him when Nathan joins us July 10th with a Winnipeg wrap-up!
