“Two Fish and an Elephant” by Khruangbin has been the perfect lullaby for my baby. I haven’t been able to get enough of Toots Hibbert since his passing. “Colors” by Black Pumas is still blowing my mind. Stevie Wonder’s “Never Had a Dream Come True” never gets skipped. “A Little Bit More” by Dennis Brown—what a drum groove! And “I’m a Ram” by Al Green actually sounds better each time I hear it.

Nee Nee Rushie is the singer of Hudson Valley reggae band the Big Takeover. The group’s newest album, Spilling Water, is out now. The band will perform at the Bearsville Theater on August 7 and the Green River Festival on August 27.
