A slightly weird list today, in that I was out of the office yesterday and didn’t actually hear the last few records here; I just cribbed them from the office playlist on our Twitter page that John Robinson posts.
Lots of good stuff here, as you can see, including James Yorkston doing an old song about Rufford, Mos Def sampling Selda and The Fiery Furnaces recording somehwat more manageable songs for the first time in a while. I’m just catching up on the other stuff now, beginning with this Yo La Tengo album, which I’m about halfway through and am enjoying very much; soulful! Check out a nice preview posted by Baptiste here. I’ll file my own thoughts in a few days.
