Melting Pot

Decided to focus on the music this week, with so much else going on. First hour features a few newer things, mostly digging deeper into releases we’ve been playing for a bit, including the Can Box Set, Hypnotic Brass with Phil Cohran, Ondatropica, Echo Lake and Shintaro Sakamoto. Some totally new tracks out of Africa from Konkoma and Janka Nabay and some truly lovely material from The xx. In second hour we have a return engagement from Chicano Batman (separate post coming shortly) where they perform and discuss music from their latest release Joven Navegante. Next week it’s the end of the month and we’re all on vinyl.
