Free Candy: Esau Mwamawaya is the Very Best, Lucinda Williams and Johnny Cash remixed

Posted By on Wed, Oct 15, 2008 at 1:54 PM


The Very Best mixtape
Yes! The the long-anticipated mixtape collab between Radioclit and Malawian  vocalist Esau Mwamawaya (AKA the African Phil Collins) is here. And it's free. If you're up on mp3 blogs, a lot of the mix will be familiar, but there's a good half dozen or more that haven't been released. Mwamawaya's about to become MIA-popular.  [Gorilla vs. Bear]

Lucinda Williams "Real Love"
She's from Lake Charles, but we'll always claim her. This comes from her ninth studio album, which includes a song called "Little Rock Star," that, sadly, has nothing to do with Little Rock. [Fluxblog]

Johnny Cash "Port of Lonely Hearts (Midnight Juggernaut Remix)"
I'm counting on the "Johnny Cash Remix" record, shepherded by John Cash Jr. and Snoop Dogg, not being great, but this dreamy take, with midnight pop-chorus coos bubbling under JC at his most plaintive, is one of the best things I've heard in weeks.  [am-fm-pm]
