Long time no post. Yeah, I know. Last week began with a weekend road trip to Omaha, Nebraska for a wedding - woo-hoo! - and then the rest of the week just kind of slipped away. Today's selections should make up for it. New Bomb The Bass featuring Fujiya & Miyagi? Here you go then. Plastilina Mosh deliver a nice and spacy jam. The Oscillation provides some righteous post-punk riffage. Byrne & Eno have a new album out, and it is pretty great, as evidenced by Poor Boy. Sankofa is woozy Afrofunk from from an ace compilation - Lagos Shake - A Tony Allen Chop Up (cover pictured above) - of tunes Allen played drums on, some of them remixed by the likes of Diplo, Bonde do Role and Carl Craig. Black Devil delight with their trademark leftfield disco. Brazilian Girls are wacky in a good way. Syclops is Maurice Fulton and friends and is full of synthy goodness. Black Affair is Steve Mason, former frontman for The Beta Band, in full on electro pop mode. His album Pleasure Pressure Point has become a regular on the stereo, and is so refreshingly different from anything else he has done. Tussle are all about the mighty groove - feel the might beat and bass on Titan.
