Is there a tribulation upon us? It certainly seemed so in January 2005, when this show was first assembled & when I was still feeling hammered by the hurricane that had ripped apart my town in August 2004. And now it seems so once again: Yes, there's a tribulation -- only this time, the storm is economic.
In times like these, you find yourself appreciating an hour's worth of roots rhythm and rhyming that counsels love, encourages fortitude, and promises better days ahead. The penultimate tune from Doctor Echo may set you soaring ... Additional uplift courtesy of Sanchez Dub, Cottonbelly, Aural Float, International Observer, Thievery Corporation, an outright classic from Noiseshaper, plus a 1990's wakeup call from Dee Patten that might just be the perfect anthem for today’s domestic drones program.
Is there a tribulation upon us? Yes, in so many ways -- but then, there is also every blessing that we have the wit to recognize.
