Today's Menu (7/6/2008)



Black Congo NC The locals have been steadily upping their benga-flavored game, recently welcoming reeds-man Brent Bagwell (Tenspeed, Project Bluebird) into the fold and adding a touch of Ethiopiques' soul to a sound that already included two guitars, synth bleats and blurps, looped vocal hollers and animal noises, and in their cut "So Long Seagull," one of the most massive, cathartic crescendos this side of Califone. Part of the as-billed Pleasurable Fest with Ear Pwr, Abe Vigoda, Kachina and Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors). Milestone (John Schacht)
