Been a minute, eh? The good people at BamaLoveSoul put together this mix of Steve Spacek tunes and I’m loving it. Spacek is inimitable, as this hour-long set proves. The BLS background writeup and a tracklist is below. Like most, I found out about Spacek when their single Eve first hit the US in 2001. Their sound was completely unlike anything I... - http://gregb.tumblr.com/post...

Ariya Astrobeat Arkestra - “New Frontier” (First Word Records, 2012) Whoaaaaaaa. Awesome vibe-out track by Leeds 9-piece Afrobeat group Ariya Astrobeat Arkestra. I highliy recommend buying their 2012 album, Towards Other Worlds. - http://gregb.tumblr.com/post...
Koreless - “50 Mil to the Woman Who Makes Me Feel Alive Again” Whoa. Interesting direction for Koreless… just a one-off or is an indication of more things to come? Yay, baseless speculation. - http://gregb.tumblr.com/post...
Robert Glasper - “Dillatude #2” (Blue Note, 2012) The live instrument covers, tributes, odes, and Dilla-themed tracks from the likes of The Roots and Robert Glasper never cease to amaze me… super heavy, deep stuff.

The live instrument covers, tributes, odes, and Dilla-themed tracks from the likes of The Roots and Robert Glasper never cease to amaze me… super heavy, deep stuff. Here’s one of two new extended Glasper/Dilla jams and it rides out so nice. A magical medley of breathtaking stuff.
 
Hit the 2:45 mark as Glasper and Co. break into a rendition of the Stereolab/”Come Play In the Milky Night”-sampled beat that Dilla gave to Busta Rhymes, “Show Me What You Got.” Straight-up goosebump/chills kind of stuff.

FEATURE: TAME IMPALA IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE
 
“I let this album nearly drive me insane,” Kevin Parker says. “I’ve never experienced that before—music actually sending you around the bend. I actually thought this album was going to kill me, which sounds really stupid. For a while, I had this weird insomnia. I couldn’t get to sleep until like 10 in the morning because I was thinking about how many choruses are back-to-back in this particular song and the chord change…I started getting vertigo, I kept thinking I was going to fall over. I was really unhealthy. I’d been a vegetarian for five years and I started eating meat because I was like, What the fuck’s wrong with me?”
 
TOTALLY WORTH IT. THANKS KP. YOUR INSANITY PAID OFF.
