    Just when I thought I'd have nothing interesting
    to write about, I discovered several new albums
    that proved to be inspirational...

    Sketchie: Rain By High Lantern - a dark,
    brooding, percussive work that echoes some of DJ
    Shadow and The Broadway Project's best moments.
    Lots of drama and dynamics (and that's a good

    Junior Boys: Last Exit - if Pole and Brian Wilson
    went out for coffee, you might have some idea of
    what Last Exit is all about. Electro-pop that
    occasionally borders on twee, but that is
    generally thoughtful and well-written, with beats
    and melodies that are sparse and effective.

    Afrika Bambaataa: Dark Matter Moving At The Speed
    Of Light - the Godfather of electro-booty-bass is
    back with a kick-ass collection of jams that had
    me sliding around my kitchen in my socks dancing
    inna old-skool stylee. Bam may not be the
    greatest rapper, but he lays down some totally
    funky shit on this disc. There's a smokin'
    version of "Soul Makossa" and Gary Numan guests
    on one track - what more can you ask for?

    The dZihan & Kamien Orchestra: Live In Vienna -
    originally released nearly a year ago in Europe,
    this recording captures a super set by the
    Austrian duo, who are ably supported by a
    20-piece orchestra. Expanding the original
    compositions to accommodate strings and brass
    give them a big, big sound that becomes
    positively cinematic.

    Roy Davis Jr.: Water For Thirsty Children - a
    classy slice of jazz-funk from Chicago's Roy
    Davis Jr., that offers up some choice downtempo
    and hip-hop'd joints, in addition to housey dance
    floor anthems.

    Toss in a bunch of new singles and tickets for
    the Ayro / Joseph Malik show, along with several
    pair for this weekend's SF Blues Festival and you
    have the ingredients for tonight's broadcast. I
    hope you'll tune in....!
