I can keep a secret, though this one was especially difficult to keep on the low. Now, it leaves the basement and shines in the street. On 10 May, my former label Esperanza Plantation plans to release El Obo – Oxford Basement Collection, a set from old soul/friend Jesse Coppenbarger of Colour Revolt. Pre-order this gem at the ESP store. The package contains a 12″ LP with a CD of the entire album plus 3 bonus tracks. Order a koozie while you are at it. I heard the vinyl test pressing last summer and it was fantastic! Grab a free mp3 of Vrgn Evl from Paste Magazine.
