The Conquering Engines and Revolution and War from Noise: A Human History of Sound and Listening

Classic voices of int'l. music's early years & a brand new Timba band from Cuba in town for a concert in Dinkytown recently.  A taste of Brasil and a trio from Kiev, Ukraine visiting the Dakota last night and tonite… Dakha Brakha.  Ending with a preview of Salif Keita and his expansive voice & repetoire, also soon coming to the Dakota, from Mali, W. Africa.

Mixing up old and new, dubwise and otherwise tonight. Started things out with the new “The Best of Boom One Records”, followed by the excellent new “Gold Dust” album from Earl 16 & Manasseh and the “Anbessa Dub” album from Zvuloon Dub System. To celebrate the upcoming show in Minneapolis, we did a set that included Black Market Brass, Chicago Afrobeat Project, and the legendary Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen. After the first hour, our pal Randy showed up and did a very cool set that included Paula Morelenbaum, Horace Andy, Orchestra Baobab, Psyco On Da Bus (ft. Tony Allen), Yabby You, and those crazy Meridian Brothers. More eclectic fun from: The Freak Fandango Orchestra, Lee Scratch Perry (from the new “Back On the Controls” album), Secret Panels vs. The Assessor, O. De Lanzac, The Clash, Stereolab, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Kalya Scintilla, Pale Rider, Keith & Tex, and many more

We speak with Stephan Eirik Clark about his new novel Sweetness #9. He is also the author of the short story collection Vladimir's Mustache and he teaches at Augsburg College.

We also talk with Deborah Harkness about her new novel The Book of Life, the final installment in her #1New York Times bestselling All Souls Trilogy that includes A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night.
