Catch up on a week’s worth of downloads

From Danish prog to Afrobeat, with a stopover in the Japanese underground.


We did some serious sonic traveling with this week’s Audiofile downloads. We started in Denmark, with the modern progessive rock sounds of Mew, hit England for the new-soul sounds of the much-hyped Amy Winehouse, spent time with Japan’s the Boredoms, went back in time with Billy Murray and ended up with the Afrobeat sounds of Brooklyn, N.Y.’s Antibalas. Unfortunately, Audiofile does not redeem frequent-flier miles.

“Am I Wry? No,” Mew

“Rehab,” Amy Winehouse

“Jungle Taitei,” the Boredoms

“Gasoline Gus and His Jitney Bus,” Billy Murray

“I.C.E.,” Antibalas (exclusive)

– D.M.
