Rcrd Lbl has pulled together a nice little sampler of the bands playing at Bonnaroo this coming weekend. Realizing that the likes of Arcade Fire, My Morning Jacket, Pretty Lights and Robyn will be there, makes me wish I was going!

Urban prayer

I just finished this mix of tunes called ‘Urban Prayer’ (inspired by a conversation on a Brooklyn rooftop), replete with tracks that have served as the soundtrack to my new life in NYC. Mostly new songs, with a few oldies thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!

‘Pleasure from the Buddha Group’

When that’s the name of the recording company, you know you’re in for something good. This song, “Rubber Band,” by the Trammps from the Zing Album (1975), is exactly what I like to wake up to on weekends. You might recognize it from samples by The Game in ‘Hate it or Love it’ or J [...]

Black Keys at Le Pompon

Prior to their sold out show at the Bataclan, the Black Keys put on an impromptu party at Le Pompon, a gorgeous new hot spot in Paris  (which feels more like a NY bar than anything I have been to in Continental Europe). They worked the decks from 8pm – 2am, amidst a sweaty and [...]
