New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with Bonobo

BonoboBritish electronic musician Bonobo (aka Simon Green) released The North Borders this week, his highly anticipated follow-up to 2010's Black Sands. Bonobo stopped by Amoeba Hollywood recently to do some record shopping. He picks up a few world music albums, the Jim O'Rourke project Loose Fur, two LPs for potential sampling featuring harps and folk instrumentation, the new Toro y Moi LP, Anything in Return (which I'm also loving right now), and a few more things.

My favorite moment from this video happens right at the end. He selects the new Johnny Marr album, The Messenger, in part because he saw Mr. Marr's episode in which he bought Bonobo's album. (Johnny Marr actually came into Amoeba that day looking to buy Black Sands and we coincidentally had it playing in the store.) Fast forward a few years, now we have Bonobo, having seen Johnny Marr buy his album in the same store, on the same series, and Bonobo is returning the favor. The WIMB circle of life, or as one person on YouTube called it, "the What's In My Bag Karma game." Pretty cool!
