New music alert: Orgone album out now, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble EP out now, new Seu Jorge record coming soon! We heard tracks from each of these stunning new records on tonight’s episode of Temposphere along with plenty else including old school favorites like Curtis Mayfield, Elis Regina, and Kool & The Gang.
