So ye, let´s kick this one off with a French girl. Why? Cause she looks pretty good on that picture, period. (© BHmagazine via via Bored and Beautiful)

Then let´s head on to this week´s Ghetto Palms column in which ehoughton@thefader.com searches for a micro-genre name describing the music Big Ship is currently putting out with artists like Jim Laden or Bramma “d bommer”. Have a listen:

Laden Blend:
Laden, “Really Like You”
Laden, “Time to Shine”
Laden, “Working Hard”

Now what you call it?

Dunno? Well, maybe you´re too old for today´s Jamaican music and should stick to artist you know or art least thought you´d know. Lee Perry for example. His new album has been out for about one month now and, of course, it´s brilliant. A Bavarian radio station has a nice little feature on it. Scratch came, Scratch saw, Scratch conquered.
