Mpomy kicks your #musicmonday into high gear!

Let’s get #musicmonday started off just right with the flat-out coolest music gadget.  Go ahead, play with that browser!  WARNING – very addictive!!

Tons of great new music came in this weekend:

Paris DJs are smokin’ with a Hip-Hop/Reggae mix that is the perfect way to start your monday off with a BANG!  About one-half hour of all solid mixes, featuring Ghostface Killah and  People Under the Stairs

Other stuff includes:

  • Weather Report radio ‘cast from 1975, courtesy the Genesis-Movement Torrent site;
  • Cult / Hare Krishna inspired music from ile Oxumare, including Santana and Alice Coltrane;
  • If you pre-0rder the new Transatlantic record Whirlwind from RadiantRecords, you get a download of their take on ‘Return of the Giant Hogweed’ (courtesy Spleen Arcana‘s Tweet feed).  This is a great marketing move because the track is righteous and many proggers hate to wait;
  • Recently off the Dime – Bruce Springsteen  1973 (either radio or soundboard) and  ELP Santiago ’93 – brilliant quality right of the radio!
  • We saw The Sounds at TLA on Saturday night, this was a mighty Swedish dance-rock outfit, fronted by Maja Ivarsson, who brings the voice, the sexy, plenty of F-bombs and a blow-dried blond ‘do that would make Madonna proud.  this was a high energy show that did a nice job of bringing new-wave into the 21st century.  Check out the music and get a free download at their website.
  • Stephen Stills has two  release coming shortly; the first is a collection of Manassas outtakes, and, since the two studio albums are tremendous, this will be a must-have.  The other is a recent concert from the UK where the Stills featured solo-acoustic and full band renditions from throughout his career.  The live set is not expected until mid October, but the Manassas title is available starting tomorrow.  Here’s a taste of what the first Manassas record sounded like:

There’s all kinds of other stuff going on, including Philly budget, house hunting, a guest post/letter about some totally screwed up aspects of the state budget, Formula 1 racing going crazy, but maybe coming to New York City (?!!) and I’m finally starting to piece together my own mixtape #1 using Apple Logic.

More on all that good stuff later.  For now, we got one more music post – the link for ya!  Check out the latest talent brewing over at
