Gilberto Gil interviewed extensively on Democracy Now! just prior to today’s program leads into a follow-up set. Comments music from Zimbabwe and then a set of Orchestra Baobab in anticipation of their visit to the Dakota on Monday June 30.
So much new dub…and only so much time. New releases just in from: Dub In A Nutshell, Eating Betty, All India Radio, Dub Terror, Trevor The Technician McKenzie, Clive Hunt the Dub Dancers, Faya Horns Meet Mad Professor Joe Ariwa, and even Augustus Pablo (with a new retrospective from Shanachie). Incredibly heavy…and good for the soul.
Las canciones favoritas de Evita en la tarde antes de que se vaya…Parranda de Despedida ¡Hasta agosto, Evita!/ Eve’s favorite tunes for sendoff party the afternoon before her departure—Until August, Eve!
We heard new releases this morning from Marcia Ball’s Peace, Love BBQ (some real slow burners on that one), Chumbawamba’s The Boy Bands Have Won (commentary on today’s pop media culture), and cute Swedish pop group The Bridal Shop (not the Cardigans redux, however) with From Seas. Look at the playlist for more music fun!
