Holy WarblesØשLQÆDA and the सølγ שаябlɛş  blog

Long overdue tribute to the blog that inspired so many others.  Much has been written in defense of this incredible collection, but perhaps none so poignant as this message from Gary at Bodega Pop:

“These blogs are libraries of cultural treasures. “Piracy” doesn’t even apply, really- blogs like Holy Warbles aren’t black ships on the rogue sea, carrying stolen items- they’re wizard archives tucked away in the wasteland, preserving the priceless and forgotten, the hard or impossible to find (for no profit). They make it possible to exist outside the horror of cultural homogeny, to find enlightenment in music, in art, beyond the popular mandate or the rigorously selected histories of previous generations.”

So in loving tribute to ØשLQÆDA (wherever you are) please enjoy these mixes from the late great सølγ שаябlɛş  blog:
