In-depths reviews and archive encounters with the reggae legend

Working from home today, which means thus far I’ve played a long Dead mix by Tyler Wilcox consisting entirely of different versions of “Fire On The Mountain”, then the lovely new Robert Stillman album, which sounds a bit like a raggedy Terry Riley, three times in a row.

Wish I could find you something from the Tomaga record which has been hogging the list these past weeks, but new, recommended and accessible here: yet another Ty Segall single; a couple of Wooden Wand songs that have just surfaced from the Clipper Ship sessions; heavy jams from Carlton Melton; and further attention to the Khan Jamal reissue and the Solar Motel spin-off, Desertion Trio, both of which rule.
