From the Summer

As a few people have requested, here’s the last installment I sent this Summer of what’s been gracing the Turner turntable for several months….more to follow

Nick Cave & Bad Seeds – Dig Lazerus Dig (getting better the older he gets, the best band keeps turning up the volume)
Ojos de Brujo – Techari (spanish/middle east fusion)
Pine Leaf Boys – Blues de Musicien (cajun young turks keep it real)
3 Na Massa – (downtempo groove from Brazil)
Nortec Collective – Tijuana Sound Machine (border sounds)
Nigeria Disco Funk Special – Sounds of the underground Lagos dance floor 1974-79
Rachid Taha – Medina (Algerian sonic attack)
Devendra Banhart – Smokey rolls down thunder canyon (the new folk king comes good again)
Antibalas – Security (brooklyns finest continue to channel Fela)
Capt Beefheart – Clear Spot (perhaps the finest space blues)
The Budos Band – II  (fela meets blaxploitation)
Cat Power – Jukebox (beautful cover versions of some classics)

So that’s it for now….support your local indie record shops!
