Lukestar, from Oslo Norway. LP Lake Toba released this month.
I play this song 4x in a row every day. Not sick of it yet. A new record.
No, that’s not a female’s voice you hear. Male. Big male. See for yourself-
Lee “Scratch” Perry and the Upsetters from 1971′s Africa’s Blood. The title is fits.
Hugg & Pepp, electronic goodness from the land of Abba.
This joint’s got it’s own laugh track.

Well we missed Anthony B and Lutan Fyah last week! They played a place called Wall Street International at 1431 North 52nd Street last Saturday. I didn’t have the guts to bike up there in the pouring rain at 1 in the morn, as that is the usual start time for Jamaican shows.
Tarrus Riley is at the Troc this Saturday.
Hopfest 4, with a KILLER IPA lineup is
performing at the Drafting Room Springhouse all day Saturday.
Do I have time to do both?
Do I have time for one more?
Here’s Delta Spirit, a San Diego band I’m digging bigtime. Their LP Ode To Sunshine is out on Rounder Records.
They also did a Daytrotter session.

They are on tour with our own Dr. Dog as we, er, as I type, and hitting Johnny Brenda’s October 23rd (without the Dog).
They’re playing Houston Texas tonight- hurricane be damned.
