The Line-Up for 10-19-2012

I'm in this rather weird period where I have to focus on earlier releases from the year but I still feel compelled to bring you straight newness. I tried to do a good mix of both this week. Linda Oh - Deeper Than Happy I revisited Initial Here earlier this week and fell for this album all over again. THEESatisfaction - Juiced Philip Dizack - Grow There were moments on Dizack's End of an Era that reminded me a little of Christian Scott. Not necessarily in this song, which is great in its own right, but I knew I had to make a set with the both of them at some point. Christian Scott - The Red Rooster In this Season of Lists, I know I'm going to return to Christian aTunde Adjuah. I'm considering this that moment where I do that. Menahan Street Band - The Crossing This song has been kicking around for quite some time now and I wasn't expecting a song that I loved so much when I first heard it to be even better on the album. The Crossing is great and you should totally cop it. Flying Lotus - Until the Quiet Comes Esperanza Spalding - Endangered Species This song was one of the highlights of Spalding's performance last weekend. Lionel Loueke - Tribal Dance Heritage is going to make my best jazz albums of the year list. I'm sure of this. Karriem Riggins - daooooh!! Robert Glasper Experiment - Gonna Be Alright (F.T.B.) feat. Ledisi I'm going to have to revisit Black Radio again soon, I'm looking forward to it. Marquis Hill - Stablemates I played through Sounds of the City again recently and fell for it all over again. I didn't realize how much Hill's version of "Stablemates" grabbed me. Seriously, this production is really good. Hiatus Kaiyote - Malika (Mark deClive-Lowe Remix) This group have been wowing folks on various music blogs for at least the last year. They've been on my radar, I just haven't copped their album yet. However, they just released an amazing remix album of their release Tawk Tamahawk for free earlier this week on their bandcamp. Hiatus Kaiyote - Namamarra (Bendaur's Double Rainbow Mix) Daedelus - Looking Ocean (feat. Austin Peralta) I've been a fan of Daedelus for years, so I was clearly excited to learn he released so new music this week.
