21 selections from the office stereo…

This week’s default morning Zen music has very much been this Hailu Mergia reissue, but plenty more new things that’ll hopefully be of interest, including a great session from Itasca to download (RIYL Jessica Pratt, Meg Baird, Rosali etc), and footage of one of the highlights of Kendrick Lamar’s storming London show last Saturday. I really should get on with writing about that, actually…
