Lucil cracks me up! This has become one of my all-time personal favorite live free mp3s from an independent pop artist since I’ve been searching around. A classically fueled REGGAE dub hit about her favorite fruit in all its manifestations. “This is for you, ‘hell ja!”
Eek-A-Mouse‘s “Wa-Do-Dem” is the second from a set of five songs from “Live In Rotterdam”, an album I found on the net before I became a dad… “recorded back in 1983 in The Netherlands, originally broadcast as a concert on the radio and never officially released in any format.” Heavyweight-dub- champions the Roots Radics knock it out. “Take it down low!”

Roaring fuzzbass and the unmistakable trainwreck sound of a dive-bar mix can’t hide the great melodies and harmonies of “Girlfriend”. Eric’s Trip weave a tale populated by tall-dark trees and spirits under rocks, but this is not so much the soundtrack to a dungeons-and-dragons epic, but more of a took-too-much-acid-in-the-woods-with-my-girlfriend-and-stole-her-car story.
