David Byrne "This is the Place"

This is one of my favorite songs ever.
"This is the Place" performed by David Byrne on Jools Holland in 2004.


El Guincho KEXP

One of my favorite artists for the past couple years, the sun-drenched dub/tropicalia/calypso/trance/electronic/boogie-inducing El Guincho, one dude from the Canary Islands of Spain, recently paid a visit to Seatle's KEXP to do an in studio performance. Accompanied only by one friend on percussion, electronic and analog, El Guincho continues to create an infectious and warm experience that exudes positivity and creativity. I think the second song, "Bombay," which to my knowledge is not on either of his LP releases, is going to be played at only the best celebrations of the future.
I love this guy, I think you will too.

You can also check out this Pitchfork Live performance from this past winter that is just great.
