Meanwhile, on the ocean floor...

From a series by Jason Isley, an ocean photographer who grew tired of taking innumerable photos of underwater life.

January 2013

Bob Dylan - House of the Rising Sun (MacKenzie Home Tapes)
As far as I can tell, this is a recording that Dylan made while staying at his friends Eve and Mac MacKenzie's apartment (described in Chronicles Vol. 1) before recording his first album. It's interesting to hear the differences between this and the Dave Van Ronk version he infamously nicked for his debut.

Bobby Valentin - Funky Big Feet

Caetano Veloso - Empty Boat // Quem Me Dera

Cerrone - Love in C Minor
I remember looking for this Avalanches sample forever ago and finally just stumbled upon it!

Charlie Ace & Fay - Punanny

Duke Pearson - The Phantom

Eddie Encinas - Guantanamo Mambo // Mambo Oriental
Good mambo + vibraphone. What's not to like?

The Four Tops - Still Water (Peace)
I had never heard this flip of their hit!

Lee Perry & the Gaylets - How Come

Madam Mattie Wigley & Congregation - Power

Margherita - Massara

Melinda Slack & Lee Perry - Want A Grine

Quakers - RIP

Ramsey Lewis - Uhuru

Santigold - Look at these Hoes

Sly, Slick & Wicked - Sho' Nuff
The sample source for Justin Timberlake's new song (no offense JT) is so much better.

Tame Impala - Mind Mischief
