This week we’re sharing the legendary blues player Junior Kimbrough along with Canadian space-cadets Black Mountain.
Junior Kimbrough – You Better Run
Junior Kimbrough played and recorded for many many years before reaching some mainstream success when Fat Possum records “Rediscovered” him in 1992. Growing up with fellow Mississippi guitar greats R.L. Burnside & Charlie Feathers, Junior developed an extraordinary rhythmic playing style that is described by music critic Robert Palmer as “hypnotic”. Junior died in 1998 from a stroke, leaving behind a claimed 36 children. Click to play a couple of our favorite tracks and go pick up this record, seriously.

“Most Things Haven’t Worked Out”
Black Mountain – S/T
This album is the first release by the philanthropic Vancouver based psych rockers Black Mountain.
