Some Fun Tracks for the Weekend

by delarue

Melvin Van Peebles’ 1971 song That’s America with footage from Occupy Wall Street – timeless (via brooklynvegan courtesy of Moist Paula).

Just in time for Halloween, here’s the Marshmallow Ghosts’ The Attic and Pig Man’s Bridge (via IFC).

Quietly and methodically, Brooklyn’s Electric Cowbell Records has been putting out one good vinyl single after another, most of them a refreshingly eclectic mix of styles from around the world. The latest is Sigi Diya, by Malian griot and kora virtuoso Cheik Hamala Diabate. It’s a swirling, spiky, psychedelic treat, also available digitally. Stream the track here.
