Melting Pot

Amazingly, it’s been a full 7 weeks since the last “regular” edition of Melting Pot, with all the special programming and fundraising we’ve done. Lot of new releases have been piling up, hit on just about all of them in this week’s show. New music from Corin Tucker, Allo Darlin’, Chicano Batman, Antibalas, Shawn Lee, Killer Mike, Echo Lake and more. I also highlighted a track from last year’s epic Googoosh compilation, put together by Dublab DJ Mahssa, who is about to open a brand new vinyl record store this weeking (with quite a soiree planned) in Highland Park, Mount Analog. I’m sure I’ll have a Dig Deep or two in the coming months from their since her taste is impeccable. Enjoy the show, even MORE new music coming up next week!
