Viva No. 18: Jorge Velez Special Winter Mix

Really really psyched for this week's Viva Radio broadcast -- airing Saturday 1/31 noon Eastern -- Special Winter Mix by Jorge Velez (Italians Do It Better / ThisIsNotAnExit / Still Music / PANACUSTICA). Icy dream-pop for walking under bare trees flows into above-the-clouds house music and more revved-up Italo / electro styles ... including a couple of excellent unreleased Professor Genius jams. Huge thanks to J.V. for putting this together, check this interview for more.

Group Bombino

Group Bombino, Music of Niger: Guitars From Agadez Vol. 2
(Sublime Frequencies 2009)

Follow-up to the series that started with the excellent Group Inerane LP, which disappeared in about two seconds and recently came out on CD ... the Group Bombino vinyl got a slightly bigger run but still a get-it-while-it's-hot situation. The music of Niger -- side 1 is acoustic, side 2 electric and ecstatic.

Group Bombino - "Issitchilane"
