Summer Preview Special, featuring conversation with Lucy Kaplansky!

Had an 8 piece funk/horn band on the show to discuss their up coming shows. The Band is called

"The Undergroove". More information about them can be found at: www.theundergroove.com.

We speak with Matthew Karanian about his book Historic Armenia: After 100 years. He is also the author of Armenia and Karabakh: The Stone Garden Travel Guide, and he has written several books on Armenia with Robert Kurkjian, including Out of Stone: Armenia & Artsakh.

Mucho new sounds to be heard in this week’s Chamber, including a guy with the Desmond Dekker-inspired name of Archie Wah Wah, who happens to be guesting on (“Bull-”?) Wackie Jackie’s new self-titled soundcloud.com album upload (which also contains Jackie’s Exodus “Exodub” remix of Bob Marley & The Wailers’ classic, which we also heard). New tunes with stingers attached included “Let Go” (by The Very Best), “Hornet’s Nest” (by Road Man), and “The B of the Desert” (by Smadj), back-to-back. Dubby Doo’s got that “old-school Tubby at the peak of his powers” vibe going on bigtime, and Indou’s new one packed a dubsteppy punch. Indubious’ new “Jammy” provided a perfect excuse to play “Jammin’ for Survival” by the original Jammy… Prince Jammy. After the half, for anyone who couldn’t make the recent live Little Dragon gig at 1st Av, kick back and enjoy “Cat Rider” from the Dragon’s recent release Nabuma Rubberband. Back to brand-spankin’ new: June 1 saw the latest release from Mpls’ very own ace wubblemeister Bogtrotter, titled Dark Matter, from which we heard the title cut plus “Ghoul Train”, and eventually “Reptiles” to take us out… WAY out!
