After hearing Gabriel Cyr/Teleseen’s name thrown around in a few places the first track of his I actually heard was a dope remix of Kartel’s “Life Sweet.” Jump ahead a few years- he just dropped a new 12″ and digital EP called Mandrake on the Percepts label. Grab the digital from boomkat. He cooked a burner mix up that is the perfect soundtrack to Sunday deep cleaning.

I usually suggest a healthy dose of classic dub on a sunday morning just to make sure you get put on the right path for the week- but if your getting tired of flipping sides or pulling for the next 7″ check Kevin Nutt’s Sinner’s Cross Roads on WFMU. He calls it “Scratchy vanity 45s, pilfered field recordings, muddy off-the-radio sounds, homemade congregational tapes and vintage commercial gospel throw-downs; a little preachin’, a little salvation, a little audio tomfoolery.” It’s mostly old Gospel and RnB- and even if your a fervent non-beleiver it’s hard to deny the sheer power of this music.

And don’t forget- BRUNCH IS A GENRE.
