Conan's Back....On TBS

Big thanks to J5 for the initial tip and then NPR the other day for the reminder.  This extensive interview of Billy West and John Dimaggio is well worth the watch.

Great New Music

Battle of Deptford (1497) by Saltwater Samurai

I heard this tune on Gilles Peterson this week.  It fantastic!  But I would like to say, if only to myself, that I am continually frustrated by the amount of artists that release a single with no album.  It would be nice to really enjoy a track, then go on and be able to pick up the album which hopefully contains music in the same vein.  The sound from this group is phenomenal, but I feel shorted.  United Vibrations, also from the UK, really knocked me out with their track "Ra", but that was all I could listen to/find.  I'd like more from a first effort.

Four Tet in DC

Today I am traveling to Washington, DC to see Four Tet live at the 930 Club.  This venture is approximately 5 years in the making, missing my initial opportunity when first attending university. 

My plan is to head down in the early afternoon and spend the day in the city, possibly even making a quick trip to neighboring Virginia.

bon voyage

Darkstar - North [2010]

I have been awaiting the release of this record for quite some time now.  I first heard this group on Gilles Peterson Worldwide <> and have since been hooked.  Two recommendations: Darkstar and Gilles Peterson.  You'll be able to find this record online now.
