Well I'm back in the sleepy west of the woody east after my trip to the city. It was so fun getting to meet WFMU's Trouble, the coolest Art Teacher on the radio. One thing we talked about was how received music distinctions (psych, folk, indie, etc.) end up putting people in boxes and keep them from listening to new stuff. I was thinking about that the next day, when I found this amazing Nigerian record by a band called One World. I defy anyone to listen to this record and not feel your life has improved somehow. I'm not even going to describe it -- just listen to it and instantly feel the grin spreading across your face. Notice that the "V" in victory is two fingers in a peace sign.
