NEW ARRIVALS: CDs - Samiyam, Wallahi Le Zein!!, Gillian Welch, Trojan Dub

*** "Every recording new to CD. 51 Tracks from natty dub, roots and effortless dub mixes." Trojan stockpile! Cheap as can be too.

v/a WALLAHI LE ZEIN!!: Wezin, Jakwar and Guitar Boogie from the Islamic Republic of Mauritania 2xCD
*** "Rare compilation of Mauritania's Beydance and Haratine music, one of the few global sounds with no industry surrounding it."

*** "Mark Pritchard & Steve Spacek bonded over Detroit techno, soul & fierce Jamaican digital dancehall. Their first full length project carves a new faultline into the rapidly expanding terrain of ''bass music'' or whatever."

FORD & LOPATIN Channel Pressure CD
*** BACK IN STOCK! "The new album from TIGERCITY and ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER is a highly focused study in the effects of consumer electronics that touches on sensual bangers and hyper-spherical anthems prime for the dance floor."

SAMIYAM Sam Baker's Album CD
*** "40 minutes of pure listening pleasure, a series of woozy, off-centre hip hop instrumentals drawing heavily on electronic funk but never in hock to it, intensely detailed and carrying considerable emotional weight."

GILLIAN WELCH The Harrow & The Harvest CD
*** Already the best seller this week! First album in eight (8!!) years.
