Burning Babylon: Super Fine Dub
Give a listen to the superfine dub of Knives To The Treble by Burning Babylon. Hypnotic beats, synthie sound carpets, excellent effects—it's one of those albums you'll find yourself putting on again and again. Subtly funky beats range from the 70s oriented "Roots Fi Cool" to technoid dubs like "Babylon Overdrive" to the heavy mellow groove of "King Dubby". Positive, laid back, deeply cool.
JAZZ / BLUES
Park St Trio: Catchy, Melodic Jazz For All Occasions
Like Goodnight Daylight, the first Park St. Trio album, 3 Plus 5 was recorded to 1-inch tape with no overdubs, no "fixing" of notes, no redos. On this album, what you hear is what they played. In the studio the band did three takes per song and selected their favorite one. True to the art of jazz, they invited a number of guest musicians, five to be exact, to record with them to add excitement, depth and unpredictability to the music. Recorded at Little Red Wagon Studios, and mastered at Headless Buddha Studios, the outcome is a catchy, quality album that establishes Park St. Trio on the Bay Area jazz scene.
ROCK / FUNK
Brad Sucks: Brilliantly Sardonic Indie Rock
Guess Who's a Mess is the third self-recorded and produced release from Brad Sucks. A more uptempo and aggressive outing than I Don't Know What I'm Doing (2003) and Out of It (2008), Guess Who's a Mess mixes funky beats, noisy synths and big guitars with Brad's wry, world-weary vocals about handling people's expectations and learning to be true to yourself.
