Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
New music including Fantastic Negrito, Neko Case, Ry Cooder, Marcus Miller with Trombone Shorty, Wussy, Matthew Sweet, Amos Lee, Leeds, Ryley Walker, Kamasi Washington, Ray Lamontagne and fab new duo Peter Buck and Joseph Arthur can be found at the center of this episode.

They survived what appeared to be one tragedy after another, but now their heart and soul has left for the after party in the sky and there is simply no way their journey can continue. But thankfully their music will never leave us. Here's a few tunes that I needed to hear today.
