June 2018 Fubar Omniverse Archives

Hour 1 featured the many sides of music by guest and local artist and activist Jayanthi Kyle. Hour 2 featured a live track by Brian Eno and the Metropole Orkest from 1999, a look at the highly theatrical metal band Ghost, performing later that night at The Palace, and vintage and new tracks from the music-rich nation of Mali. 

Today's mix featured some classic ska, New Orleans funk and brass from visiting artists Trombone Shorty and the Soul Rebels, 60s garage from Minnesota's own Litter and others, global harp collaborations, visiting artists at the 19th annual Nisswa-Stämman gathering in Nisswa, MN, rounding out with a little Amadou and Mariam saluting the women of the world. 

Okay, so we gotta give the raccoon who scaled that 25-story building in downtown St. Paul some here. Nine songs chronlicling the climb, but I could have done a two-hour salute and played more over Amy Goodman in the noon hour. That was some pitch, with no belay partner, ropes, carabiners, chocks, or what-have-you. You try it and see how far you get.

Sultry, languid, and occasionally sweaty music for a hot summer day.
