August 14, 2010

New tracks from Aloe Blacc, The Budos Band, The Haggis Horns, and Lloyd Miller with The Heliocentrics were generously salted in with bedrock classics from Sugar Minott, John Martyn and Shuggie Otis on tonight’s edition of Temposphere on KFAI. Lots of fantastic music direct from Africa as well along with so much more. The show is available as an MP3 stream in full stereo fidelity for two weeks at the KFAI site; the playlist is posted both there and here.
