Tropicalia In Furs X Rappcats Pop-Up #3!!!

If you know me, you know I love Brasilian music. Brasilian wax is about as tough as Cuban wax to get stateside, except on those rare occasions when Joel of Tropicalia In Furs fame swings back down to LA. This weekend was full of amazing vinyl, including some records that […]
