<strong></strong>From AttorneySt: In short, we were bumping Bobby Ray’s “Starship Strobelight” one day on the way from getting a caramel macchiato (with soy, and what?) and something clicked. This isn’t new. This goes beyond a trend. By “this” we mean the tradition of musicians, particularly black musicians, looking to “Other Planes of There” for inspiration and understanding.
