    The World Music Parlor (that's the thread title) would be the place to check.

    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    Quite often I think of that track as the best thing ever laid to wax. Fela was on a fucking TEAR with that one.

    D'you do vinyl at all? If so, you should really look at the first Fela box set that Knitting Factory just put out. It's got 6 Fela albums repressed with great liner notes and really meticulous attention to detail on the art aspect. Plus, you'll get copies of Expensive Shit and Beasts of No Nation. Not cheap, but it's totally worth it.

    Two albums: Zombie and Expensive Shit. They're my two favorites, and the title track from Zombie is not only my favorite Fela song, it's my favorite funk song and one of the best things you'll ever hear. I swear that song has so much personality that it's almost alive.

    Expensive Shit, Zombie, Water No Get Enemy, No Agreement, Roforofo Fight..

    You could start there. Be prepared to get your mind fucking blown the fuck off.

    edit: and b, love vinyl. I have been meaning to grab a fela box set, thanks for recommending one. I have a few reissues, but it would be great to have it all together. Thanks.

    Expensive Shit taught me afrobeat. It's almost too good the first time you hear it.

    Dude, the box set just came out and it's so awesome. I'm not sure where you're at, but I found it on Amazon with a really good discount, and Amoeba in LA has had a few copies the last few times I've been.

    is this not a good price? http://www.turntablelab.com/vinyl/0/0/89211.html

    I've got a cart going haha, could just add it. If amazon has it for much cheaper, I will definitely go there.

    That's the standard price. If you can find it cheaper then it'd be great, but it's well worth that price too.

    FYI, if you're a college student you can get an Amazon Prime account for free using your school email account. That gets you free 2 day shipping on all orders that ship directly through Amazon, and it's a great deal. I grabbed that box set for so little through Amazon's presale because of the free shipping.

    Thoughts? In my opinion it's not nearly as good as either song individually, but it's a good effort. There's a whole album of MJ/Fela mashups.

    here's one of my favs



    Did any of you see the Fela musical on Broadway? It was actually pretty well done, imo. The lead actor played the part AMAZINGLY. Sounded just like Fela, it was eerie. And the band kills. (Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra).

    I'm listening to the self-titled Foo Fighters album in its entirety for the first time since the 90's, when my friend's older brother had it and played it a bunch. I had forgotten how awesome it is. Foo Fighters = great.

    I had also forgotten that half of these songs are still played all the time on alt rock radio.

    The first album is incredible, perfect, creative and all worthy of praise. The second and third albums were both decent but not great, and they've been less interesting after that, but that first album...Damn.

    I have major memories attached to The Colour and the Shape, so I'd argue with you about that not being a great album. The rest are some awesome songs mixed with some not-bad-but-not-great tunes. Dave Grohl is pretty awesome. I always manage to forget this.

    I love The Colour and the Shape, but I feel like there are some weak/underwritten tracks on it, or at least songs that sound too prototypically modern Alt-Rock. That was my favorite album for a LONG time as a kid though.

    Actually, I wouldn't disagree with your argument. Nostalgia totally colors my opinion of it (no pun intended.) I'm relistening to it right now as well. It's been a long time. Reminds me of summer days at my friend's house, where I used to spend days at a time. The first album is a stronger overall batch of songs.

    Awesome. I can't wait for this.

    Stephen Malkmus Announces Beck-Produced LP

    Last year, we reported that Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus had hit the studio with his band the Jicks and one Beck Hansen. But because Malkmus was busy with the Pavement reunion tour all last year, that collaboration had to go on the back burner. Now that Pavement is once again in the rearview mirror, Malkmus is back on his solo grind. The Matablog announces that Matador will release the Beck-produced Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks album Mirror Traffic on August 23.

    The Matablog also reports that Mirror Traffic will be the final Jicks album to feature former Sleater-Kinney drummer Janet Weiss, who's keeping herself busy with Wild Flag, her new band with Mary Timony and ex-Sleater-Kinney bandmate Carrie Brownstein. At future Jicks shows, Joggers drummer Jake Morris will take over for her.
