Holywarbles: My favorite new blog

For my money, the best new kid on the block for sweet musical obscurities from all over creation is Holywarbles:

That blog's progenitor, one Mr. Owl, is tearing through the month of May. Today's only the 6th, and he's already got up 49 posts! And I mean good ones. Amongst the highlights, so far:

Abbass Mehrpouya - African Jumbo [Mehrpouya Sitar] LP

Hailu Mergia & the Walias - Tche Belew [1974, ethiopia]

pandit d.v. paluskar - kamod. bageshree kanada [hmv, ealp 1366, 1971]

he6 - beautiful doll lp [1972, korea]

Nahid Aktar - Film Hits LP [EMI, 1975]

The Witch - Remembered Vol. 2 (Zambia)

va - Thai Funk Zundrangma Vol. 1 & 2

Tafo Brothers - Plugged In Pakistani Pops LP [Disposable Music 01, Finders Keepers]

And plenty more where they came from....
