MAM After Dark
With the vibrant world of Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon on tap in the main galleries at the Milwaukee Art Museum, the MAM decided to make a Latin connection for this month’s MAM After Dark. Tomorrow night will have a lot to offer if you want to get your Latin fix. With salsa dancing, Spanish design, and spicy surprises you can explore global Latin culture through art, music, food, drink, and dance. With the afro-latin funk of ¡ESSO! (El Sonido Sonic Octopus) straight of Chicago and Future Rootz, a collective of local and international DJs playing and remixing global roots, tropical bass, world electronic, and Latin house music, the forecast looks very tropical for Friday.
Friday at 7pm @ The MAM ($14)
Today’s music news comes from Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Steely Dan and Yes:
Protoje “Truth and Rights”
That Pentateuch Movement have built their local and international rep on the strengths of their live sets is admirable. But as a DJ, I am even happier that they’ve started putting out some solid songs for me to get, have and love. Their first release, “Punchinella” is a dubwise throwback to 80’s Black Uhuru, when Sly & Robbie were running their rhythm.
Jesse Royal “Always Be Around”
The newest member from Protoje’s In.Digg.Nation Collective, Lila Iké is a young Jamaican singer with a classic and soulful sound. Iké took the decidedly unorthodox path of releasing a tribute to her mother as her debut single, “Biggest Fan,” and her second release, “Gotti Gotti,” is even better…
This early digital reggae gem from Midnight Riders called “Bobby Was a Gangster” was released on New Zealand’s Red Robin Records. Not many details, just a solid chune…
Randy Valentine “Vigilant”
Kerida Johnson, aka Hempress Sativa finally dropped her debut album in early 2017 and Unconquerebel has proved to be worth the wait. Her weighty, witty lyricism is dense with rootsy, Rasta-informed wisdom and the album features a stellar lineup of musicians like Chinna Smith and Flabba Holt. Boom wah da da deng indeed…
Kabaka Pyramid “Can’t Breathe”
Stream a bunch of new music from Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Jack White, Car Seat Headrest and
Whew! So much music coming your way.
