I remember buying a used copy of 'Ritual De Lo Habitual' (censored cover edition) based on MTV's relentless replaying of 'Been Caught Stealing', and being unprepared for the depth of some of the other tracks. Absolutely one of my early "horizon-broadening band I found independently of my older brother's recommendations" discoveries

Hey, just so you all know, pleroma.nobodyhasthe.biz is antisemitic, at least, that's the easiest explanation for the following stuffs.
ahh, and now the custom theme is once again in place.
One of the unlikely albums that was in heavy rotation during my last year of college was the used CD I found of Henry Mancini's "Music from Peter Gunn," a truly fantastic artifact of its time. It's got a looser feel than a lot of Mancini's later arrangements, a really compelling blend of jazz and big band.
My enduring memory of this album during that time was a summer night that I was working as a gopher for a local production company, helping tear down after a trade show at the city convention center... it was after midnight by the time we finished, and I was driving through the completely deserted city downtown as 'Dreamsville' played, all the streets empty and storefronts darkened. There could not have been a more perfect soundtrack for the moment. https://open.spotify.com/track/3GKtPUsvH8Q3ecj65M3hfO #nowplaying #tootradio #henrymancini #petergunn
If there was ever a band that could seamlessly transition to having their music reinterpreted and orchestrated it would definitely be Thievery Corporation.
Last week they snuck this one past and my head is somewhat hung in shame (though I offer the new Purity Ring and Yaeji releases as my distraction)
There aren't enough o's in smooth to describe their catalogue and this is a great tribute
This is amazing. Henry Rollins tells stories about songs he then plays for you for 4 hours.
boz scaggs is another unfairly maligned figure in pop rock, a true talent. like robert palmer, boz was always excellent at picking the best musicians for the moment, and silk degrees (1976) is basically responsible for the creation of Toto, who all played on it together.
"Lowdown" and "Lido Shuffle" are obviously the big hits but I'm a big fan of "It's Over" which is a wonderful faux-town classic
robert palmer is extremely underrated, at least when it comes to his earlier r&b stuff. he did a pair of records—this one, Sneakin’ Sally Through the Alley, in ’74, and Pressure Drop in ’75, his first two as a solo artist—with a backing band that was mostly members of Little Feat and the Meters. Both bands were at the peak of their form.
Both of those records are must-listens, even if you only know robert palmer for the 80s videos, if you like New Orleans r&b.
