robble robble

from awesome african music-oriented blog Benn Loxo Du Taccu, we find this song, Tchop Tchop, by artist Humbertona. i'm totally obsessed with it right now.

it's traditional-based cabo verdian folk from the 1970s (for lack of a better description). apparently the album was banned by the portugese, as it was released prior to independence, and the colonial overseers were trying to suppress expressions of indigeneous culture. rereleased now by Morabeza Records. original post from Benn Loxo is here. enjoy!

why we love the internet

ah, technology...via el stence, the top 15 unintentionally funny comic book pages. hilarity. although jughead should have made an appearance somewhere it seems. iirc there was a lot of bizarre innuendo around his eating habits that made it into those archie comics.

stepping it up

to reflect all that it is that i am, gonna start doing some mp3 bloggery up in here.

first, today, a track that i listen to almost every day when i get to work. i've gained such an appreciation for anthony hamilton, and desperately need to get his other albums besides 'Ain't Nobody Worrin.'' he's at the top of my music listening for last week, as you can see on the right (at least this week anyway).

courtesy of next-level web file sharing from divshare, you can listen to this inline on the blog, and download it straight from here. track is 'Can't Let Go,' sorry title is obscured. will adjust file renaming accordingly. hotness! enjoy.
