Too Cool for School

Listen. Don't panic. Just because there's a mention of "school," doesn't mean that it's time to head on back to it--if that's on your upcoming agenda. The term speaks for itself. And in regards to those two pupils of cool above, St. Vincent and David Byrne can be the definition of "too cool for school," and not just because they're wearing shades. But, we'll get to them in a bit.

The Professor’s Picks: Lawrence Olds Band; David Michael Miller; Slam Allen; Shaun Murphy

Is it just me, or does this year seem like it’s flying by? Henry and I have been up to our eyeballs in great music and it’s still coming in. Thanks goodness. That means we have all sorts of great new things to share with you and we’re on the prowl for even more. Thanks for listening to Time For The Blues, and let’s get to this month’s releases.

Unwrap This

Christmas in July? Sure, ther's a saying for that. I know I've read it somewhere. And I'm guessing it's retail related. However, in this case of this week's World Music Show (7/4), the title is apropos. You can say that it's my clever way of relating that I have a slew of new music to unwrap. We'll check out bands from Buenos Aires and Chile as well as from South Africa and Kinshasa--it'll be like the bow around this week's show. And inside the box we'll hear what rap music sounds like when it comes from Brazil and Senegal.
