There's nothing better than discovering new music with a little help from superbeast nation. Take Vigon for instance. My pal Mizz Mitten turned me on to this Morroccan soul crooner with a nod on Twitter. 

Vigon was a vegetable vendor in Morocco before discovering soul music at U.S. bases in the early 60's. He became a minor star in Paris, covering American R&B numbers. His music is experiencing a bit of a revival over the past 4-5 years, with a smattering of vinyl reissues. Dig it.
