I talk about Syl Johnson’s career, including those parts of it cataloged on the incredible new Complete Mythology for NPR’s All Things Considered.

I may or may not create a future post, going more into Johnson’s career so let me just, once again, urge folks: cop this compilation. It’s the latest in the line of “best things Numero Group has put out.”

Not related to Syl Johnson but on the “things Oliver is writing about” tip…I also discuss what Far East Movement means for the historical trajectory of Asian American music, in the LA Times.
