World Music Wednesday

I have come to the sobering realization that I just don’t have the stick-to-it-ness to regularly post about World Music on Wednesdays, although I still like the idea and it will be an occasional feature when I have something to share.

Plus, there are others who do a much better job at this world music business than I do. Here are two for your consideration this Wednesday:

Awesome Tapes From Africa blog

Some Swedish reggae music from a Swede called The Frenchman. Go figure.


  • Another great Blog for (mostly) African music of ALL kinds is Benn loxo du taccu: It’s linked to my blog, too.

  • I thought Stephen Malkmus was joking when he said he was making Swedish Reggae a few years ago. It really exists.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
