Right? It's the best stuff! And it just gets better and better with age.

The piece right before what's on now? That was Mop Mop's Habibi. Excellent album! I think you'll like the whole thing!

Fun shooow today. Mostly heard while on errands until just now. Also dug heck outa the Mop Mop! Happily varied sounds abounds. Especially the semi- spoken word w. Anthony Joseph. Know the latter, but not the former. DAMN! More happy homework.... ;^)

Thanks, Peter! You should definitely check out Mop Mop, especially the new one and the last one, Isle of Magic. There are also a bunch of remixes of both around too. Great stuff.
