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.┬áHe 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 ┬áSinner’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.

Open a pop-up player of one oh his most recent shows here.

And don’t forget- BRUNCH IS A GENRE.
