Ben Harper rocked out with his new record with Relentless 7, Kermit Ruffins effused optimism for his beloved hometown with Good Morning New orleans, and Federico Aubele made smooth seductive music like he always does. His new record is called Amatoria, and it should set the tone for sultry evenings this summer.
Tonight we featured Part 1 of this year’s Around the World in 20+ Dubs special (first aired on Echo Beach by TurnTable Terrorist at WLUW) along with a bunch of new dubs and other great stuff. Sista M, Tilly Roots, Hotdrop, 60 Channels, Dubsmith, Frostafari, Secret Archives of the Vatican, and Manwel T meets Minds Eye Dub, and still more.
First: big thanks to everyone who helped KFAI reach the spring pledge drive goal, and all members of community radio all year. You rock. Second: Tosca’s new album was put out today. We also had the boys set with Pet Shop and Junior Boys. That new Junior Boys record is synthesizer deeelightful. Also new local The Evening Rig.
