I've also been picking up the daily free downloads whenever I get my fix. Finally one that kicks booty.

Galactic (& Lyrics Born): I Got It (What You Need) from their new album From the Corner to the Block.

I actually have a couple Galactic albums (Ruckus and Crazy Horse Mongoose). Off the top of my head, I'd categorize it as down and gritty, southern inspired fuzzbox funk-jazz with hints of electronica.

The brief descriptions of the new album mixes in various collaborators and hip-hop. This track sound good. My download is DRM'd iTunes so I'm not up to the conversions required to share it for you all. But here's a track from Ruckus if you're interested ( lossless). And another one I like. (

Anyway, anyone have the album to comment on it's purchase worthyness?

11-06-2007, 09:32 AM the Jazz Fest (everyone sick of me taking about the New Orleans Jazz Fest yet?). They played the same night as moe, and both of them blew the place apart. I have a live cd from them called "We Love 'em Tonight', recorded live at Tipitina's, or Tip's, as the locals call it, a very famous NOLA club. Lots of up-tempo stuff, plenty of horns. Haven't listened to it in a long time, so maybe I need to dig it out?

I see their web site has some concerts for download (FLAC, $) ( Wondering if any of these would be good.

That's funny...I saw Galactic and Starbuck in the heading and thought it was about the TV show.
