This Island Earth
Sunday July 15th, 2018 with Rob Bitschofsky
Mostly new releases today.

What's new? Well, a couple of compilations of African and Afro-caribbean music that go back to the 50s, some very contemporary African dance music, a selection by "New York City's only Farsi Funk group", some very relaxing trancey stuff from James Hood and a second collaboration of Seckou Keita (kora) and Catrin Finch (harp), some spacey sitar jazz and a Japanese guy who cuts together mouldy old VHS movies into a funky new sound. And more! Also, a Balinese gamelan interlude.

Diggin' heck outa Uniting Of Opposites! Reminds me more than a little of Anoushka Shankar. ... Pretty easy guess that i'd be over sitar jazz funk fusion-y sounds. :^)

Yeah, I thought you might dig this one. Pretty groovy, and a good companion for the heat out there.

It is, naturally, completely dark and freezing up here in our superterranean world headquarters.
