New music releases have slowed down a little bit through the holidays so I mostly relied on the tried and true on today’s episode of Global Beat (I did sneak in new/old cuts from Brownout and the Afro Soul-Tet). Along the way we heard timeless tracks from Gregory Isaacs, Bembeya Jazz, PM Dawn and the heretofore lesser mentioned Pluto Shervington. The show is available in its entirety for two weeks as an MP3 stream at the KFAI site where you can also scan the playlist (posted here as well, after the break).
