currrently listening to:

1. The Young Knives - Voices of Animals and Men LP (thunderous and frequently hilarious debut)
2. Super Biton De Segou - Afro Jazz De Mali LP (cool collection of Malian Jazz)
3. K'naan - The Dusty Foot Philosopher LP (best rapper on the planet?)
4. Lambchop - Beers Before the Barbican (heartbreaking and gorgeous track from the new album, Damaged)
5. Wayne Jarrett - Showcase Vol. 1 LP (sweet, chaotic dub reggae)
6. Junior Boys - In The Morning (fabulous, crunchy new slice of tech-pop)
7. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan - Kamli Wala Mohammed (loping, funky pop from Pakistan)
8. The Needles - Summer Girls (ultra indie)
9. Thomas Mapfumo and the Blacks Unlimited - Chimurenga Explosion LP (vibrant zimbabwean protest music - recorded in Oregon, so go figure)
10. Good Shoes - All In My Head (fizzly, crackly pop and good fun)

Radio 3 played a K'naan track last night. It was collaboration between him and an artist from Burkina Faso I think. Unfortunately can't remember the other artists name but it was uber cool. Maybe from the new LP not sure?
