I didn’t feel much like talking in this month’s episode, so I let the riffs do all the work, a decision which I’m sure none of you will be sad about. This is a collection of what I believe to be the best of the best riff-makers in 2016, with a little something extra thrown in at the end that I couldn’t resist including.
As always, here is a list of the tracks used in this episode, and a link to where you can buy and/or pre-order the albums they came from.
Roll a spliff and light it up. Grooves are always better when they’re riding on a haze.
