Give the Drummer Some's
6 Favorite Downloads from the MP3 Blogosphere
The Miner is delighted to come up for air with another haul of luscious listenables. There's something for everyone: Favor some sweaty Nigerian funk (Segun Bucknor) or maybe rarified live "jazz"/"classical" collaborations—with German audience participation (Penderecki/Cherry)? Or maybe your fancy is tickled by pimple-faced pop from a '50s kid actor (Eddie Hodges) or a massive collection of soundbombs assembled in garages on four continents (Too Much Monkey Business). Last but not least-tastiest is the savory set of R&B mindbenders (Killin' Jive) and the steel drum–infused discofunk from the conga player who's toured with Neil Diamond for the last 30+ years (King Errisson).
