The "Peace Go With You, Gil" celebration will feature performances by Scott-Heron’s longtime collaborator Brian Jackson, Amoeba Music staffer Jimetta Rose Smith, Carlos Nino, Jeremy Sole, and more. The celebration is said to explore “the soul, vitality, power, humor, social activism, humanity and dynamic messages” of Scott-Heron through a musical and artistic experience. Amoeba will be there with a booth, so come check it out.
 
Amoeba also has several Gil Scott-Heron albums available in store, including the harrowing I’m New Here, released in 2010, and its remix album with Jamie XX from moody Britpop duo The XX. I recently picked up Reflections on vinyl, it's awesome. Check out all the releases in stock here.

Download the Mansions on the Moon EP FREE

Posted by Billy Gil, February 15, 2012 01:07pm | Post a Comment

mansions on the moonL.A. indie pop/electronica band Mansions on the Moon have released a new EP, Lightyears, and have made it available as a free download for the time being. All you have to do is like it on Facebook. I did this, and I like it in real life, too, especially the second song, "Leaves Fall," which is just as serene and pretty as you might guess from its title. And it's executive produced by Pharrell Williams! Download it while it's hot. They'll have a full-length out later this year, and they play L.A.'s The Mint March 9.
