Featuring Kendrick Lamar, Sufjan Stevens, Amber Coffman, Evan Dando, Kevin Morby, Gas, Joan Shelley and lots more

Bunch of interesting new things here; I wish I had something to play you from the Man Forever album, especially the Laurie Anderson or Yo La Tengo collaborations, but I don’t think anything has made public yet.

In the interim, please find below a new Kendrick Lamar track; Tunisia’s ultra-intense Ifriqiyya Electrique; new things from Sufjan Stevens and his gang, and from Sam Amidon; Amber Coffman (this one slipped out a few months ago but I missed it at the time); Lilie Mae Rische (from Jack White’s band); and two tracks from the deluxe expansion of Evan Dando’s wonderful “Baby I’m Bored”. Also don’t sleep on the Kevin Morby track and the Gas teaser. And just remembered, maybe best of all, there’s another new Joan Shelley track…
