    I'd go if I was in the neighborhood, always a guaranteed boogie. the drum jam hasn't gotten old yet either.

    This album goes places and I can't wait to listen to it even more! Also digging Liz Harris' new project.

    If you have a spare 24 minutes and want to relax in a warm bath of melancholic beauty try this. I didn't love Gordi's debut album as much as I wanted to but these stripped back reworkings bring piano and her smokey voice to the fore and I'm loving them. Been coming back to it quite a bit over the last couple of weeks for a bit of informal meditation.

    Accidentally found this ethereal French shoegaze band yesterday and been listening to this. God it's beautiful.


    P.S They just put a new album out a couple days ago. On the same bandcamp page.
    P.S.S I might actually like it more than the album I linked :eek:

    Okay folks, that Goatman album awoke something in me and I am loving whatever kind of music it is that he's playing (which I refuse to call "world" because that means nothing). I have been listening to BCUC and it has scratched the itch a bit but there's not a ton of it out there. Then there's obviously Fela Kuti for some things along those lines but my main gripe with his music and Afro-beat in general (so no Budos Band) is the foghorn-style saxophone playing, which just serves to tear me away from those sweet, sweet polyrhythms.

    I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction because there doesn't seem to be a single algorithm in the world that can lead me to what I'm looking for.

    Since it is Thursday, might as well throw it back a little bit to the mid-90's. This one popped up on my workout shuffle this evening, and it really pushed me forward during a tough stretch of running. The Sons of Hercules were/are an old school garage punk band that played a lot in Austin in the 90s. I think they were originally from San Antonio though. If you like the Stooges, the Saints, the MC5, or Johnny Thunders' Heartbreakers, you will probably like this. I still have a couple of their albums on CD. Nothing fancy about these guys, and nothing you haven't heard before, but why mess with a timeless formula?

    A young man growing up in Nairobi, Kenya falls in love with American and British rock while listening to a small transistor radio. He speaks only Swahili but wants to understand what these artists are singing about. So he teaches himself English by listening to Jeff Buckley. Now all he needs is a guitar. When he asks his mother, she says I can buy you a guitar or feed the family dinner for a month. He didn't get the guitar. But his love of music did not wane. Discovering Bob Dylan in high school led him to single, inevitable conclusion: He needed to move to Minnesota. In the middle of winter.

    J.S. Ondara moved to Minnesota five years ago, taught himself guitar, wrote songs and got used to the winters. He's an amazing young man. And his debut, "Tales of America" is out today on Verve Forecasts (Yes, Verve!). Collaborators include Dawes’ Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith (Dawes), a couple of folks from the Milk Carton Kids and Andrew Bird.

    Here's much more on J.S. Ondara:

    His Story (in his own words)
    World Cafe interview and studio performance
    StarTribune article

    I was fortunate to catch him at on the mainstage at First Avenue in Minneapolis. Playing solo in front of a sold out crowd, you couldn't hear a sound except for his simple acoustic strumming and that amazing, etherial voice. After hundreds of shows there, I have never witnessed anything like it before.

    Recommended if you like soul, folk and an amazing story. Seriously, just give it a listen.

    If you liked Rosalía's El Mal Querer, check out this guy. The song is really good, and the production reminds me a lot of Rosalía. Don't take too seriously the performance because it's competing for Eurovision so sometimes things get weird there.
    Just don't look for the lyrics. Are the stupidest lyrics since "Friday" by Rebecca Black.
