  1. The Antibalas cover is so very good! WOW! Thanks Snark!

  2. ...and I gots ta check out some more Ilhan Ersahin

  3. Hey..."Holiday in the City" is pretty darn good. Unfortunate band name though.

  4. Hey! I was just checking out "Hey Moon" last night for the first time! Interesting enough to check out more of his stuff.

  5. And the Wild Domestic was good as well. More research...

  6. I keep meaning to listen again to Maus and Wild Domestic myself... WD's songs are really long... which may be deterring me... slightly...
