Saturday Nite Rockers Playlist

 Although I wasn't able to record and post audio for this month's Saturday Nite Rockers show on KUSF, the playlist is below.

It highlights how many great new albums are currently out or forthcoming -- Luciano, Capleton, Duane Stephenson, the Dread And Alive comp etc... New roots is alive and well!

The dancehall riddims are definitely bubbling hot again, and Tony Matterhorn is developing into a very interesting DJ / toaster, cut from the Shabba Ranks mold.
