Hard to navigate beyond memorial listens to Walter Becker and Holger Czukay this week, as you might imagine. Still, a bunch of things made it onto the stereo as we’ve been grappling with deadlines. Highlights: another strong plug for the new Steve Gunn and John Truscinski jam; a rich DJ mix from Floating Points and Four Tet; more private press gold from Tompkins Square; the pretty interesting Peter Oren; Gun Outfit, who I can never decide how much I actually like them but are always worth a listen; and the mammoth Hüsker Dü box. Swing over to NPR, who are streaming the whole thing
