7/25/16: Changui Majadero, Mixed Culture, Fraudband, IJI

@@@ Changui Majadero: El Changuie Majadero (Self-released, 2016). Some self-released Cuban changui and rumba music off the WRIR playlist email. I love Cuban music!

@@@ MILF: God Save the Teen (La Concertini di Musica Brutta, 2016) Some rough proggy punk splatter in the vein of Frank Zappa. Lots of herky jerky to the arrangements, a high quality drummer and song titles like Barbie the chubby, Cum to Daddy, and God Shave the Teen. 424 more words
