Up until 2010, there was only one Mariah in my life, and I loved her deeply.
Then Spencer posted this exquisite album on the Root Strata blog, and in the six months since it’s become one of the most-played records on my computer. Please, please, please do yourself a favor and check out this weirdo-new-wave Armenian-Japanese global-pop masterpiece.

Happy Labor Day weekend! Sorry for the delay in posting — I’ve been in San Francisco the last four days reporting on Root Strata’s On Land Festival for Signal to Noise magazine. The festival was so well done + incredibly fun to catch up with old friends and meet new ones — also super amazing + shocking to meet so many Popcorn Plays readers. So after a two-day detour to Arcata, CA and the Oregon coast, we’re finally on our way back to Portland. Phew.
Aaron Neville on a Mississippi mix??! I miss America.
[Thanks, Root Strata for the link]
PS. The Neville photo was from an article titled “Aaron Neville Revelant.” The caption to the photo was “Neville can finally afford sleeves.”
“Hurricane Katrina has resurrected the dying career of Aaron Neville, one of the city’s slightly famous musical artists.”
Haters gonna hate.
