A few things:
-My friend and Boldtype editor Toby Warner reporting from Senegal.
-Rory Stewart's account of his 2002 walk across Afghanistan is a must-read. Check out an NYT review here.
-Stop by Modifyer for a weekly smattering of the most interesting new electronic tracks. This girl spends crazy time listening and discovering new sounds for your benefit.
-Philip Sherburne's got a new mix up from Lolita in Barcelona. For those of you in the area, he plays with Konrad(ical) Black at Raum the 27th of July. Check it if you can.
-DJ Rupture's blog is a must for your bookmarks. He's got plenty of great mixes on there.
-Wagon Repair's put out the new Cobblestone Jazz EP, and Mr. Soft at Tape has one of his incredibly insightful (and hilarious) reviews included in a comprehensive roundup of new rackords.
-In case you missed it from a few weeks back, here's my Flavorpill review of Dwayne Sodahberk's new one. It is a really cool record that's worth your time. Promise!
-Finally, a cool mini-Minus doc via Youtube, which brought "Gem Sweater" to this blog earlier in the week. Thanks to Hector for pointing it out.
