It's been a big week in the music world, with announcements of hugely anticipated albums by Godspeed You! Black Emperor (which you can pre-order in the BV shop), Japanese Breakfast (ditto), and St. Vincent. It continues to feel like 2021 is gonna be a great year for music.
To rewind a bit for some older music, it was basically Bad Brains Week at BrooklynVegan. We did an extensive interview with Darryl Jenifer about the band's classic '80s albums/era, and we also retrospectively reviewed the self-titled LP. Bad Brains are in the midst of reissuing much of their catalog, and you can pick up some of those records on some very cool-looking limited splatter vinyl in our store.
