The taproom @ Church Brew Works

Sunday night I arrived back in Orlando from a 15 hour car ride, with several bottles and growlers in tote. Back from a beautiful city filled with steel bridges, fresh fish markets and a blossoming craft beer scene.

As I eagerly await the arrival of my Spiderland boxset I have found a way to tide myself over. NPR is streaming the box set in its entirety on NPR.org.

Note: The box set is sold out so i hope you all got your orders in!
We are always excited to post new music by Glenn Jones and here is the first peak at the 3 song record being release by Thrill Jockey for Record Store Day 2014.
Info: “Island III” and “Against My Ruin” were both originally recorded for Glenn’s 2007 album Against Which the Sea Continually Beats, and were subsequently played live as a medley. The recording that appears on Welcomed Wherever I Go was recorded in December of 2011 at the well-loved and now shuttered Brooklyn club Zebulon. “From A Lost Session” was a recording lost to time until Glenn discovered an unmarked CD-R in his archives, presumably during that classic session with Jack Rose. Welcomed Wherever I Go is being released in a limited edition, vinyl-only format for Record Store Day 2014.
- 01. Medley: Island III / Against my Ruin
- 02. From a Forgotten Session
- 03. The Orca Grande Cement Factory at Victorville (with Cian Nugent)
The new De La Soul mixtape Smell The Da.I.S.Y. is now available for free download here – Link
We posted the excellent track Vocabulary Spills last week and highly recommend the whole mixtape.
About the mixtape:
De La Soul and producer James D. Yancy (J Dilla) defined New York hip hop for a generation: for more than twenty years, for more than a lifetime. J Dilla passed away in 2006. Smell the Da.I.S.Y. is dedicated to his legacy. The new mixtape consists of classic De La Soul lyrics over vintage J Dilla production. In honor of Jay Dee, it’s available for all. Download the BitTorrent Bundle for the 11-track mixtape, the J Dilla documentary, an audio letter, and wallpapers. And Smell Da Inner Soul of Yancy.
If you don’t know who J Dilla is (one of the greatest beats makers of all time) check out this documentary:
Spring time and stomp boxes, it is time to ring in the warmer weather with some distortion and a bit of yelling!
