Cool music

The Vinyl Villain brings a cornucopia of mp3 joy, including a great Bill Bailey skewering of radical patriot Billy Bragg to accompany the bard of Barking waxing lyrical about the A13; "England's Dreaming" by Cornershop; and the god-like Jerry Dammers' homage to the not-so-god-like Nelson Mandela and the ace Scottish indie band, Sons & Daughters' homage to the even-more-god-like Johnny Cash (as well as the, er, interesting Scritti Politti song about Jacques Derrida).

Undomondo posts some great music by Marc Ribot, a superb musician, whose incredibly eclectic ouevre ranges from klezmer to salsa to avante-garde classical, to surf rock. Also: some nice Yemenite oud music here.

I've been in a Fela Kuti mood recently, so it was good to come across this 45 at Benn loxu du taccu.

I've posted something on Israeli funksters Kutiman some time in the past. Here's more, from the lovely Ugly Talented blog.
