A long one this week. The new Endless Boogie album is here – “VIBE KILLER” – which has predictably been a major distraction. But please check out these new entries: Jim O’Rourke and Kassel Jaeger’s hypnagogic “Wakes On Cerulean”, if we can still use that word with a straight face; Nick Hakim; that killer Ron Gallo garage rock jam; the latest elevated jangle from The Cairo Gang; another track from Jake Xerxes Fussell; and The Magpie Salute – Rich Robinson and Marc Ford from The Black Crowes, with a small army of new accomplices – doing Delaney & Bonnie. Also my regular reminder that the Tribe Called Quest is just the greatest.
