A ton of heavy new dub…and other fun new things this week. The biggest, heaviest new dub arrived in the form of Dr. Echo’s new dub album attributed to his former group The Defendants. Also excellent new rootical vibes from The Manor, Kabir La Amlak, Winston Jarrett, Tony Dubshot, Citizen Sound (with the Rise Ashen remix of “Trouble”), and a number of artists on the new compilations “Italian Dub Community – Showcase Vol. 2” and “Revolutionary Dub Vibrations – Chap. 2”
It was a fun 8am hour this morning as Duncan Maitland:http://www.myspace.com/duncanmaitland was back in town and brought his brand new album with him. We listened to Lullabies for the 21st Century, gave away several copies (thanks, everyone, for playing Duncan’s trivia game), and Simon joined Pam in asking Duncan about the evolution of his songs. We also heard new music through the morning from Crooked Still, Gogol Bordello, and Flying Lotus.
Starts with heavy soul featuring Willie West The High-Society Brothers, Eccentric Gospel Funk, Kings Go Forth, Ray Lugo Roxie Ray, and Nostalgia 77 Alice Russell. Then a NOLA set featuring new Trombone Shorty Galactic. Later is brand new jazz; outernational reggae from Finland, Scotland England; and hip-hop feat Tru Ruts Family among others…
