MOGGS: amulat EP

The wait is over. After a mind-boggling array of pressing issues, we can finally enjoy the latest MOGGS release, amulat EP, on vinyl! Although it has been frustrating being privy to the delays, it was well worth the wait. Available as digital download from iTunes since November '08, dj slow has been thoroughly enjoying this EP via pod for a while. But as any vinyl-phile can attest, the real deal is just so much better - especially when it's a completely analog recording and has been as meticulously produced as all MOGGS output is.

Aided by a different guest musician on each track, amulat EP carries the drive and focus of the previous full-length, The White Belt is Not Enough, while MOGGS and contributing friends bring new sounds to the mix that further embellish their gripping, singular take on contemporary independent music.

Have a listen to amulat EP on MySpace, and pick it up on vinyl at the MOGGS website fast, as there is a limited quantity of 300 beautifully packaged 12" records available. If you're in the Bay Area, be sure to catch them this Thursday night at Casbar in Santa Rosa, CA. Their live show will give your neck the workout it's been needing since the last time you saw them.....

All I Need is Jah: Jamaican Showcase '08

A taste of red gold and green for a snowy day in Olympia and probably elsewhere. Here's a mixtape* from last year that I thought folks would enjoy while other mixes brew....I'll get back with the tracklist eventually.

Oh, and click here if you want your own unique Lion of Judah Glory Hoop, pictured above.

*PS: I say mixtape as this is in fact transferred to digital from cassette. Can you feel it?
