    The Dwarfs of East Agouza are back with « The Green Dogs of Dashur » ! Once again, the prolific American-Egyptian trio composed of Alan Bishop (Acoustic Guitar-Bass/Alto Sax), Sam Shalabi (Electric Guitar) and Maurice Louca (Organ/Synthesizers/Beats) breaks off all constraints and reveals a resolutely free album offering an improvised trance to the listener. The hot embossed metallic double-headed dog designed by the Lebanese artist Lynne Zakhour perfectly illustrates this album that blurs the boundaries of rock and jazz. A new album that will certainly delight fans of the Sun City Girls or the Land Of Kushes.

    I think it was a fair response as well. I think I'd have been a lot blunter had I been in your shoes.

    I'm happy with them. Very comfortable and sound good, to my ears anyway.

    A very old Harman Kardon amp, JBL speakers and a recent luxury (i.e. I didn't need them) purchase of some Bowers & Wilkins PX7 headphones. Streaming wise I use SoundCloud, Mixcloud, Bandcamp, Deezer, hearthis.at and occasionally YouTube Music. I buy through Bandcamp and direct from labels quite often.

    I don't know about the 5.1, but I've heard positive stuff about the 6.2 and 7.2, both of which are reasonably priced. It sounds a bit spammy but take a look at what's available direct from them on...

    I don't know about the 5.1, but I've heard positive stuff about the 6.2 and 7.2, both of which are reasonably priced. It sounds a bit spammy but take a look at what's available direct from them on their site. Obviously there's a lot of marketing speak and hard sell, but still worth a quick look. The 4.2 looks to be very good value.

    There is a tracklist in the SoundCloud comments of Christoph De Babalons set, which is the second hour of the show.
