Another crazy night of dubwise fun in the Echo Chamber… Kicking things off with the choice new JBB in Dub from John Brown’s Body on Easy Star. This was followed by Lord Hissayas’ excellent “Nazirites Sounds vol. 1” on KingDub/Nazirites. Also new tonight: the tasty Orangewood Sessions 7” EP from Relaxo; the cool new “Sumud” album from Niyaz (Six Degrees); Diabel Cissokho’s “Kanabory Siyama” on World Village; Morgan Heritage’s new “The Return” (on VP); “The Observer in the Star House” from The Orb & Lee Scratch Perry; and “Easy Star’s Thrillah”.
We talk with Arnold Alanen, author of Finns in Minnesota. Arnold Alanan is a professor emeritus of landscape architecture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has written extensively on landscape history, vernacular architecture, settlement patterns of Finnish American, and cultural resource preservation.
