Melting Pot

This week’s show was packed with great music, much of it performing in Los Angeles in the coming week, including Tinariwen, King Khan (with the Gris Gris??!?!?), Baloji and even the Monkees!?!?!? Also new music from Shabazz Palaces, Thievery Corporation, Ocote Soul Sounds, the Pepper Pots and the instrumental version of Charles Bradley’s fantastic retro soul LP No Time For Dreaming. Most of the second hour features a performance and interview with LA’s Pollyn (a separate post will be up shortly), before closing out on a more idyllic turn, with some Holly Golightly and Steve Earle, who I STILL can’t believe was killed on HBO’s Treme?!?!?!?!????!
