I always think it's kinda cool when old recordings are given new life. And with such notables as Tony Humphries, Nickodemus, Digable Planets' Ladybug Mecca, DJ Logic, etc. mixing up Lady Day, how can you go wrong? I am taking Billie Holiday's Remixed and Reimagined home tonight!
I missed Mirah at the Block Party, but I have always thought her music was more for a quiet venue or even better at home with the paper and a cup of tea (whiskey). Share This Place (w/ Spectraphone International) is no different.
Okkervil River's The Stage Names starts out a bit rough in my opinion, but by the fourth track it's all hearts and stars in my book.
I am usually down for an indulgent super long title, unless you go too far (like Fiona Apple). Public Enemy have put out the enticingly titled How To Sell Your Soul To People Who Sold Their Souls today. I wonder if it's a primer, or if you can play it backwards or something? Most likely it's social commentary. Boresville.
Remember, Easy Street Stays open late on Monday's so that you can get your new releases at midnight!
