Thanks to those of you who have been asking for a new playlist. This one has been in the works since last fall - and courtesy of a job change, moving across state lines, and surviving COVID Christmas, it’s ready for your consumption. I had a lot of moods in the past 6 months and … Continue reading Sunday Music: NEW Playlist For January 2023
How have I not sung the praises of this song here before? Max Romeo was a Jamaican reggae star and bonafide island crooner. Lee “Scratch” Perry was personally delivering dub (and the insane tech behind it, which he was creating by hand) to the universe. This song is one of my favoritest things either of … Continue reading Sunday Music: Disco Devil

It’s about the dark side of our consumer culture, where when the things … Continue reading Sunday Music: April 29, 1992, There Was A Riot On The Streets Tell Me Where Were You?
I wasn’t paying attention yet to have caught The Specials in their prime (I had done too little and was much too young).

So much energy, so much attitude, and so much reality in the lyrics (if my pun didn’t make … Continue reading Sunday Music: Where Did You Get That Blank Expression On Your Face? (Quarantine Edition)
I saw and heard snippets over the last few years. But, my mistake, I didn’t slow down and really listen. Mikayla Simpson, known as Koffee, is a young reggae/dancehall/Jamaican/international star. Her music is both historically informed and modern. She is drawing on influences and pushing on boundaries in a unique way and we should be … Continue reading Sunday Music: Koffee Is Killing It
