This week’s show had a lot of new music at the beginning and the end, including the excellent new compilation on Brownswood, “Brownswood Electric 2” and one of the tracks I played this week is by the 19-year-old wunderkind Frederic Robinson, “Mood Swings:”
In addition, there was the absolutely smashing “Cursis Melodias” by Natalia Lafourcade, who I came to when I was in Guatemala City, jetlagged, channel surfing among Mexican music video channels. I was hooked.
Little Dragon’s new album, “Ritual Union” is finally out, and while I didn’t have time to play the two tracks I wanted to, I was able to get to a live cover they did of Crystal Waters’ “Gypsy Woman (La Da Dee)” which is excellent. Who knew?
