When it comes to independent hip-hop artists in Korea, few are as exciting as NUNSSEOP. Mixing trendy and colourful sonics with his distinct, somewhat cloudy vocal delivery and skilful flow, the South-Korean forms broad, yet undeniably vivid soundscapes in his music, taking the listener on an experience that allows them to tangibly grasp the intent behind each and every one of his songs.
Far From Final recently released a new single Head Down the Hall.
I normally start with a brief background on the featured artist or band. However, Funky Pythons' Q and A session was so good, I'm going to cut to the chase ... Funky Pythons have a new song "Bin Diving Queens". Enjoy.

Ry Cooder has a NEW album, but that's not why I'm writing this. I caught up with Ry Cooder over the phone for his first live album release in 35 years. Corridos Fomosos, he corrected my pronunciation as you'll hear. This was a live album recorded over two nights at a venue in San Francisco. There's a stellar cast of musicians on this album. His son Joachim on percussion, Flaco Jimenez on accordion, Robert Francis on bass, and vocalists Terry Evans, Arnold McCuller, and Juliette Commagere. The ten-piece Mexican brass band La Banda Juvenil also guested. He had recorded at the same venue in San Francisco 35 years earlier. On this album there were up to 18 people on stage at one point. He wasn't informed they were recording the concert. Whilst they were driving home to LA later that evening he was informed by his sound engineer of the recording. Although this latest album released in 2018, Prodigal Son is his first solo album.
