Music

Tonight we had the great pleasure to debut the new Echo Chamber – Around the World In Dub – Vol. 1 & 2 album! That’s right. After months of tracking down some great music and asking artists to join the project, collecting and mastering the tunes, and some hours on artwork, the album was officially released on Bandcamp.com on July 5th. On the program tonight we played the entire Volume 1 of this compilation album, featuring: Bandulu Dub vs Nahuatl Sound System, Leah Rosier, Zion Train, Ras Amerlock, Dubmatix, Dubsalon, Citizen Sound, McPullish, Eating Betty, Madtone, Funk Dub Division, and Mutant Frogs. But the vol. 1 of the Echo Chamber album filled just the middle hour of the 3 hour show; there was so much more… This included the new Musical Road In Dub album from Najavibes (mixed by Mad Professor and Gussie P); the excellent “Temptation” album from Ras Sis Highness; Sir Oliver Skardy’s “Mambo Nero” single; “Delayrium” from Jah Acid Dub, and the Italian Dub Community Showcase – V.4.

C'est le 14 juillet!   For tonight's program, we celebrate July 14, or Bastille Day, which marks the storming of the Bastille and the beginning of the French Revolution in 1789.  Louise and Caryl will play the national anthem, la Marseillaise, in several versions.  We will also play music of the period and share memories of our experiencess in France on July 14.  

On Tuesday, July 10th, our guests are poets Jules Nyquist and John Roche.

Jules Nyquist is known to many Write on! Radio listeners as a former co-host of the show.  Now based in Albuquerque, she is the author of a new collection of poetry, Appetites, which mixes together poems, recipes, and photographs.  More information about Jules and her book can be found at julesnyquist.com.
