In-depths reviews and archive encounters with the reggae legend

Here’s this week’s playlist – topped off by a couple of returning heroes, the mighty Dr. Octagon and Ray LaMontagne. I’m pretty sure I reviewed the first Dr. Octagon for Melody Maker, which shows how long it is since Dan The Automator, Kool Keith and DJ QBert were active as a group. Cool, though. Otherwise, some new discoveries including Snail Mail, Moon Hooch and Neighbour Lady, an unreleased track from Shirley Collins, new sounds from Joaquim Cooder and Cut Chemist.
