while we're at it, i might as well share with you the new music i've been loving lately. good stuff by awesome folks.
the mutaytor--www.mutaytor.com --a righteous lightfest of tribal drums and good vibes. they keep the floor a-shakin and my ass a-jigglin.
helios jive--www.heliosjive.com --funky dancey fun, straight-up good jazz. didgeridoo sax and scratch--included at no extra cost.
porter tinsley--www.portertinsley.com --a new album from your favorite madamoiselle quill herself. haven't purchased it yet; knowing her taste, it has to be good. and body-rockin.
bassnectar--www.bassnectar.net --danceability plus.
barry syska--www.barrysyska.org --unlike all of the above, which are superb for gettin your bootyshake on, this guy's melodic old-school sound begs a partner and fedora. i listened to his promo cd all day yesterday.
andrew bird--www.andrewbird.net --the only musician on this list who's not shared the billing with lucent dossier in the past few months. the mysterious production of eggs, his latest, tickles my brain somewhere in the very back, close to the subconscious. the way he puts things together is ethereal and evocative. (and he's on ani's label!)
