Ex-everything, post-the future, Sinkane’s stellar album MARS is set to drop on DFA Records on October 23rd. Before that happens Sinkane is playing with Lee Scratch Perry at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 23rd.

From where I sit, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry is, hands down, the most exciting artist at Nelsonville Music Festival 2012. The 76-year-old Jamaican, whose name is synonymous with the foundation of dub, has produced Bob Marley, won a Grammy, and is listed as Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Artists of all time. The fellow is a living legend.
Perry’s eccentric personality, experimental recording techniques, and love for super reefer have been defining characteristics over the years. Nonetheless, he’s sober these days and, apparently, still weird as shit. Highly recommended: Saturday, May 19th @ 12 AM on the Main Stage.
The 2012 Nelsonville Music Festival lineup continues to be awesome. Today NMF added Andrew Bird, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Hayes Carll and Time & Temperature to the lineup, which now looks like this:
Iron and Wine
Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry
Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires
Kurt Vile & The Violators
Dark Dark Dark
Lee Ranaldo Band
Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside
Shovels & Rope
R.Ring (Kelley Deal of the Breeders)
Hope For Agoldensummer
Time & Temperature
More to be added in the coming weeks. $75 weekend passes for May 18-20 are available here, and check out the new NMF website, too.
