Living legend Asha Puthli returns to live performance after nearly 40 years away and we’re sharing a portion of her stop Live From KCRW HQ during today’s MBE. We’ll be bringing more of the session over the airwaves soon, but you can also watch the full set (and brush up on Puthli’s more fascinating-than-fiction life story) here. Also part of today’s MBE you’ll find alt-Latino impresario Manu Chao’s “São Paulo Motoboy” (his second new single within the span of a month). Chao’s first solo studio LP in 17 years (!) Viva Tu has a release date set for Sep. 20. And have you heard what happens when Hiatus Kaiyote goes punk? “Cinnamon Temple” from the new LP Love Heart Cheat Code (out Friday, June 28) is the answer so click that player button to your left and have a listen.
