Thievery Corporation - Culture of Fear
New music Tuesday is again upon us, and we've been looking forward to this for a few weeks now, as our favourite downtempo/eclectic band is back with another collection of wonderful ambience generating music. The first single, "Culture of Fear," is in both keeping with their style while still being a bit of a departure. Historically, Thievery is well known for musical collaborations with vocal artists, but this one seems a little more in the hard core vain as opposed the the usual groovy world music tip, but perhaps that's due to the subject matter. Either way, it works. As per standard operating procedures, we've embedded the track above for your listening pleasure. And while we're talking about the Thievery Corporation, they just happen to be going on tour in support of the album. They are playing the Malkin Bowl on the 13th of August, and we're going to have a picnic (weather permitting) just outside the venue in the Stanley Park Rose Garden. So pack up some fine meats, cheeses, breads and a bottle of wine and come and join us.
