Great music to prepare a summer feast to on this blustery afternoon Man'! (My Sis' and her girlfriend are visiting for the Aug-long. ) Much chopping and chatting going on, over a very rich sonic backdrop. That Tété Alhinho track, just before set break, was terrific! Her golden pipes remind me a lot of the heart-melting China Forbes (Pink Martini). And, both of the new Heliocentrics releases are FANTASTIC, top to bottom, too.
