Another week filled with excellent new releases. Topping the list was the fantastic “Prester John Sessions” from Tommy T (on Easy Star). More great new stuff from: Sushidread, King Midas Sound, Tony Dubshot, The Black Seeds, The Technician, Babilonci, Nneka, and Aldubb. Also, the new compilation “All Kinda Wall” on Dubkey.

11/17/2009 Dig Up The Roots

Braziliance! 2 hours of recently discovered Brazilian records from the 1940’s 1950’s. Sambas, Forro, and music that sounds like it could have been played in the best Dentist offices and elevators of Rio.

11/17/2009 Pam Without Boundaries

New stuff we heard today: We All Have Hooks for Hands (out today), Pert’ Near Sandstone’s new one (on the heels of their very fine CD release show), and New York chanteuse Margot Blanche. Her album, Pages in My Diary, reveals a flexible persona who switches from torch song to funky hip-hop number as smoothly as Madonna went from material girl to earth mother way back when. This is to say, you can’t tell which style is really her own, but they all work fine.
