What are you listening to this week?

For me, I finally opened to the Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers Live Anthology vinyl box (7 LPs) set that came in a couple of weeks ago. Glad to snag that one when they re-issued it... snoozed the first time years ago and it was going for more than my car is worth second hand.

I also got in the bundle of 5 vinyl repressings of the 1990s releases by the great Scottish indie guitar pop rock band Teenage Fanclub, which have always been fave records...

And Matthew Sweet's recent record Tomorrow' Daughter is great classic guitar (power) pop, continuing his tradition of having great guitarists, including Jason Victor (Dream Syndicate/Steve Wynn) and Valentine McCallum this time around.

And 13, the new record by Canada's great rock quartet Sloan likes to stay on my turntable for days at a time...

as far as streaming at work...

Michael Landau has a new record called Rock Bottom that has some great guitar playing on it, of course.

Johnny Marr from The Smiths has a new-ish record called Call The Comet I keep going back to...

The record Adult Entertainment by Jon Herington (Steely Dan guitarist and musical director) is a couple of years old but I've been pulling it up a lot lately, along with Triboluminescence by Andy Summers... and Joe Pass and Tav Farlow albums have been calling to me recently.

Anyone can do a spot chk of posts here to chk out my listening but here's something new I just heard (at least in this version)

It reminds me of this long time fave, though the reasons may notbeas obvious as they seem
Pali Gap / Hendrix
< https://vimeo.com/204090437 >

I must also say that these young cats Surfer Girl hipped me to have impressed me greatly.
I really think they go far beyond their early hype.



but twothumbs on Tal Farlow, P90
& thx for the tip on Sloan !
If I may, "Punk Byrds"

d...

Sloan, You certainly may "Punk Byrds"... those "Crosby" harmonies are a big thing they use... that's actually their first single from 1992 or so... after that they went in a more classic 60s pop/less "grunge" direction, which made Geffen records angry at them and they lost their recording contract... but they carried on. All 4 members are singer-songwriters with distinct personalities... the bassist/de facto leader goes behind the drum kit when the drummer takes his turn on guitar and vocals, and is a great drummer, too. Talented cats.

Teenage Fanclub have a bit of a Byrds thing, too, along with their Big Star thing...
and, funnily enough, they were also signed to Geffen records, who thought they'd be a big as Nirvana (before Nirvana) but they steered away from "grunge" and more into classic melodic guitar pop...



Someone linked to that "Bridge of Sighs" clip on facebook and it was a treat... made me get into the song more...

And I dig GVFleet... the hype soured my reception at first, but then I had to think about how that's not their fault, and they're so young... we'll see where they go.

Details, DBM, details....?!

Here's some of what I listened to tonight...

Ray Davies takes the story-telling aspect of rock music that Chuck Berry commanded unto us in a peculiarly English direction
Magic moment = the mťlange of piano styles deployed behind the final verse


AK sings so lovely she almost makes me forget ReRe's fade love
Magic moments = the melismas at 1:33 & 2:45


Hometown hero Donnie Glover takes us back to some place near home
Magic moment = 3:20 / "no sound"


Gary Shider recounts tales of a ghetto childhood while George Clinton celebrates getting his 1st video budget

Magic moment = when we shift to the uptempo 2nd recorded version
featuring a searing gtr duet between Eddie Hazel & Michael Hampton


Don Van Vliet channels the ghost of Otis Redding
Magic moment = 0:57 + wherein guitarist Bill Harkleroad shows his stuff

Going on a short road trip with Mom over the next few days, so Iím NOT bringing anything to challenge her musical tastes.

Donít get me wrong, for 72, she is still surprisingly hip. (But she was a music teacher, sooo...) Iíve taken her to see Aerosmith with Slash opening and Rival Sons in the past year or so, and turned her on to the vocal prowess of Chino Moreno and Josh Homme as well.

She even complemented some of the Lacuna Coil I was playing this week. But why borrow trouble, right? So Iím taking the metal out of the carís rotation.

Iím keeping The Black Keysí Turn Blue, Robert Plantís latest, and an old Nicky Skopelitis album, Wake Up and Dreamn the rotation. Maybe Clutchís Strange Cousins From The West will remain as well. The Lacuna Coil and Judas Priest CDs have been replaced by Jonas Hellborgís The Word and a California Guitar Trio concert CD.

Iíll probably put some more pop, jazz and classic rock in the car to round things out,

Currently in my car CD player (where I do most music listening these days):

Spock's Beard: Noise Floor


The Sea Within (debut album)


Tab Benoit: Medicine


Big Big Train: Second Brightest Star


IQ: The Seventh House (hoping to make it to ProgStock next month to see them live.)


Dave Kerzner: Static


At work, I have a lot of music ripped to my PC that I listen to on shuffle when I can. Lately, I've had a lot of my old band, Redeem The Day, come through; as well as a lot of Andy Osenga.

Just from that track, kinda makes me think of Seattle poprockers from the end of last C but a bit more polished.
They are good arrangers in a v.classic rock manner.
I do find a whole slew of Beatley stuff they do/did.
I like this one best so far, mostly for the gtr work & the shifts in the arr. (overall kinda mid-period FMac).
Drummer varies his stuff interestingly, too.


& what a great message of welcoming reinforcement---he don't mind if yer around ! rolleyes grin

Normally, Iím always on the hunt for new stuff. I found Brian Eno by listening to what the bus driver on my route was playing. Iíve found others from commercials, recommendations, etc.

But I havenít had the chance to listen to the unfamiliar in this thread- trying to hit the road to Houston, soon.

Yeah, of course nobody's gonna answer my Q or know if they really dug any of this in an instant.
I just wondered if there was any recognition or interest being stirred up or if hand

I'm constantly looking for new or different stuff, myself. Going through and listening to the things posted here that I haven't heard (will post some vids, myself). When the Guitar mags arrive every month I sit and read them while listening to a track or two by whoever is being profiled... I'm not much of a metal fan, but I check out Gus G or whoever to understand them.

I listen to lots of genres of music from about 7 decades. I pickup some here, some at Starbucks and other places. Sometimes I'm concentrating on a few songs that I'm trying to learn. Now I'm working on 3 Bonnie Raitt songs that are covers, so I'm learning covers of covers I guess. I don't know if this makes sense, but it's easier for me to cover Bonny Raitt than Dylan. Million Miles, Standing in the doorway and Bonny's cover of Del Shannon's Runaway are what I'm working on. In the end it's a group decision what we use and don't use. Next up, for my enjoyment only, Greenwich Village 60's.

There's only a couple of stations on the radio in these parts where I'd hear new "rock" stuff, and each time I hit them while "surfing", I never hear anything interesting enough to make me wanna stop.

OK.... What I listen to doesn't HAVE to be "rock" music, but any other "modern" genres are boring to me, And most other "genre specific" stations( Jazz, country, etc.) usually broadcasts long established tunes, or are also boring to me regardless of HOW "new" their offererings.

Here's a song he virtually created Keef R's persona w/via his participation in the PERFOMANCE soundtrack w/Randy Newman


BTW, dig this old track


Ryland's a real traditionalist but he's also one of the best players & interpreters.
What can we do to make his place in history more correct ?

Just heard of this cat, Proteje, today
here's he's rocking w/ one of Robert Nesta Marley's kids
They'll break ya into nu-reggae mild stylee


This one's a bit more modern


Extending our trip into BassLand perhaps I'm not the only one to like this / violinist Jerry Goodman rips a gtr solo starting 1:36 rawk


Here's a version of same tune but featuring Mr Geoffrey Arnold Beck, who, as you might guess makes the tune all his own rawk


Otherwise, in checking out the new Paul McCartwheel alb EGYPT STATION,
It seems that 1/2 a century aft Lennon broke the F-word barrier on his 1st post-Beatles solo record,
Pauly's gone nasty himself / 1st one's a double entendre perhaps, 2nd's flat-out rude shocked freak
dial up 1:20 + if ya can't abide the sorta boring song

Well, I've now listened to most of the stuff posted here that was unfamiliar to me. Some thoughts:

1) Protoje sounds like an interesting breath of fresh air in reggae. Scooped out a couple other videos, but havenít decided on him yet. Will have to listen further.

2) I bought Sons of Apolloís album when it first came out, based on the personnel. That album was disappointing to me, but Iím waiting to hear more from them to see where theyíre going. When I watched that live vid of THE SEA WITHIN, I was similarly not 100% sold. However, I recognized that, as a live performance for a new band, that could be a simple matter of not having gelled yet. So I looked for a studio track official vid, finding:



This has earned them a ticket to the second round, as it were. Will definitely continue looking around to see what else theyíve got out there.

3) Heilung kicked ass. End of story. Iíd heard OF them, but not anything from them. Thanks for posting.

Proteje's not the only update on reggae, not even the most modern.
Elsewhat...

This morning I learned abt a band I'd heard of before but had never actually heard. Guess what ?! They are cool!
At least some of the time...much of their stuff is a bit too blatantly punk in sound for me but some of it's really well arranged w/multi-layer vox & catchy melodic effects.
Here's the 2 best trax I found so far---you make the call.

This has a great swing feel combined w/vox that carry a slightly diff feel---together there's a swirly, syncopated feel that reminds me of a Zappa gtr solo. Also catch the classic pop FX that crop up (like the cheesy combo organ timbre at 1:35+ )


This one's a bit rough on dainty sensibilities shocked (hey, I warned ya) but is both as catchy a pop track as I've heard since M's "Pop Muzik" & lyrically hilarious.


Reference shelf This is "Pop Muzik", the song Frank Zappa & David Bowie didn't write together

Working my way backwards through the list...
The Sea / Ashes
For me the playing's better than the song; I liked the drum work (Marco Minnemann) & it's recording (both v.crisp)
& the gtr solo starting at 2:50 (Roine Stolt ? Daniel GildenlŲw ?) is interesting, particularly in the way it's phrased.
However what really sets this apart for me is the kinky bass line & sax solo (Rob Townsend) that starts @3:20 ! freak
Oh, & the vid itself is cool , too. grin

Little Village - She Runs Hot / Don't Bug Me When I'm Workin'
Thanks, Pjr ! I'd never actually seen them---Hiatt's hilarious ! grin
Have ya seen this ?

It's a good week for new music.

I came home yesterday to a package at my door. I had pre-ordered Scott Mulvahill's "Himalayas", which just dropped. Great upright bass & vocals, with other instruments guesting from time to time.



And speaking of pre-orders, I just put in mine for Glass Hammer's "Chronomonaut". I will miss guitarist Kamran Allan Shikoh, who recently departed; but keys player Fred Schendel is no slouch on the six stringer, either, and some other guests add guitar tracks as well. And Susie Bogdanowicz's vocals... heavenly.



Scottish singer Fish is putting out his last album before retiring, and he seems to be going out on a strong note. First track, "Man With A Stick" just released. Looking forward to the full album.

Man, thanks for adding to my already-over-extended list, Danz !

I just broke into the newest DownBeat & am still tryna prioritize that ...but reading there abt Brazilian guitarist-composer Caetano Veloso's new work put me in a retrospective mood & I dug these things out...

Gal Costa doing one of Veloso's prettiest tunes
Dig the gtr /synth bit that crops up near the end (3:05+ )


Veloso & band doin the same tune


Back to Gal / here she clears the air abt the sometimes bittersweet taste of love while the band funks it up like they're auditioning for Mr James Brown


Which leads me back to wondering abt whatever happened to that nice McCartney kid facepalm

Back in 1990, after Fish left Marillion and put out his first solo album, I heard he was touring. So I stood in a long line to get tickets. Only to get to the counter and see that it was for PHish. I left empty-handed.

Reminded of this in a diff thread.
Cheap Trick goes simultaneously rock-rough & arty on a classic track from John Lennon's dark daze...
Catch Neilson's intro starting at :30 + / his frenetic soloing in Lennon's trademark, repeat-the-lick style (see next vid) & his too-cool-fer-skool pic flip @ 3:00 twothumbs


Lennon, w/his once best bud... idk...
In regard to that rpt-the-lick thang mentioned above, dig the solo JL plays at 3:30. Seems bonehead simple...'til ya try keeping the rhythm exact throughout.

Today, investigating a MidEastern duo, Red Axes (yawn) I came across this...Kinda spacey, kinda melodic, lightly jazzish.
What do ya think ?


Here they take a completely diff tack...at least at 1st...before settling into some B'S BREW-era Miles Dewey Davis territory.
I like how the drummer sometimes actually duets w/ the leads.
Gtr solo = 5"30~7:47 / don't miss the upwward swipe he ends with ! grin
Haven't been able yet to get accurate info on IDing the 2 guitarists.

Umbabarauma's one of my personal fave trax ever !
What a great perf !
All the translations I find suggest it's abt football but I strongly suspect it's a bit more than that.
BTW, have you caught this one yet ?


The Ladama track's interesting; I like the rhythmic trix they do.
Niyaz is cool, too, though a bit more mainstream musically, I think.
Great vid though !
Reminds me of another fave of mine.
A song that, unfortunately, is still as relevant now as then. HeadPop
Dig the synth solo that starts at 2:05. rockit


Muireann's got a great voice---love those trills !

I note that yer hitting several cultural angles there, Hugo. What got y'on this trail ? snax

Cross checking references, that apparently took place 3/12/18 at Capitol Theater, Port Chester, NY.
Not really sure how they came together there but I imagine it was JS & WH both there to chk out the Dregs reunion tour.
I was quite surprised by the combination, too, but the weird part would be if they actually arrived together.

Here's a question: do pro performers just drag their gear around w/them in case there might be a jam ?
I know some cats do/did (Les Paul & Hendrix were notorious in that regard) but does "airbody" now ? idk
---------------
Some further comments....
Although Haynes leads into the tune, Morse is burnin' his butt right away.
Note Morse's adjustment of monitor direction during WH's initial solo + pretense at taking notes !

Has Haynes always played slide using that same picking method as Derek Trucks ?
Haynes also cues a drum solo following his 1st gtr break...this is, after all, Morse's band.
That dr solo seems a bit shaky (time variances & you can see Sco tryna figure where the structure is...Haynes steps in to provide light gtr cues).

3:40 HERE WE GO! Sco ignites a def jazzy edge, w/swinging phrasing + partial lines that leave room for the thought to be completed by others (or even by the listener) but also executes a loooong line from 4:10 ~ 4:25 (joined by Morgenstein at the end of phrase rimshot ).
JS's transition between choruses abt 5 min mark & his, I gotta say, hilarious start to 4th (?) chorus are worth noting, too, as is the bg action of Morse apparently getting ready to play---but SAco's not done yet ! Morse cast his hand up in the air like---"Oh...ok...".

Haynes takes control & sings a verse + plays a disruptive, broken phrase that gives Morse some clean room for Morse to lay new track....but wait, Sco's not done!
The beat drops it's busy-ness while JS interjects some BBK-isms.
Then he & Haynes trad some fonk.

Finally at 9;20 Morse gets his band back & dang, he's got some stuff to say...although he does so in a single chorus !

I must say that, while my tendency is to view John Scofield as the favored son here, & both he & Haynes acquit themselves powerfully, I think Morse comes out as the player w/ the cleanest tonal projection.

-----------------------
FWIW, Haynes & Sco have some history.
Here's a clip from a few yrs back.
I'll leave the analysis to ya'll.

While we wait for russcian to clarify the above here's another, new ghost who I was reminded of recently.
Never really knew his skills til I looked into some of The Permanent Record last week.

Many may recall this.
But dig the snarlin' buzzsaw Mr Tony Joe White whips out at 2:50


But didja know he wrote this one ?
He sings OK but dig that gtr work---the fills throughout are sumptuous. cool


Here's the clincher.
Again, the performance is rife w/great fills but the gtr solo [5:35~coda] is worthy of study alongside anything by Mark Knopfler or Dave Gilmour. rawk

I'm never very far off that trail. I'm a 2nd-gen MexAmerican who never learned to speak Spanish, so I didn't understand the words to half of the music I grew up listening to. Consequently, not understanding languages used in songs has never bothered me.

Love Ofra Haza...now and forever, my fave singer of all time.

Now listening to...this:

Just became aware of this song & perf.

Yeah, they just came back into the limelight, hit movie & all but
while I liked some of their stuff, I mostly considered Q a generic pop band but this---in the best way of rock music---carries suggested meanings that go beyond what's stated outright. In this case perhaps addressing the malaise that sometimes affects any of us but also the larger social antipathy that seems to've blanketed not just the USA but the world overall.
Uh, too bad we're still waiting for the magic 35 tears later. "The waiting seems eternity" facepalm

Plus Mercury sings w/real nuance & May is just rippin' that gtr ! rawk
The Magic starts @ 3:10 ... goes away, returns ... goes & returns---just like in real life !

Everyone's fave JH tune gets recast yet again
Do not miss the tappingsection 1:25~1:40


Steve Vai a couple yrs back goes all electronic note-shaping on us


Doyle Dykes goes in the exact opposite direction
Magic Moment = 2:44~2:54 just before he enters some ethereal uncharted territory


Vernon Reid closes us out w/another Hendrix tune

What most defines that genre ?
The off-beat syncopation of the bass, of course !

I tried to post video and failed.
Imelda May, Train Kept A Rollin.

FYI: Not my favorite version, that would be the Yardbirds. I always try to find a female version of a song if I can.

Re: Rivers of Nehil
Do all those cats sorta look like the same guy?
I'll have to look into that...I like conceptualists [*].

Well-recorded but only the sax solo really resonated w/me...Oh now the bass solo [5:08 + ] is giving me something to think abt & the drummist was clever throughout.
I also liked the little shiver-me-timbers ["shiver-me-timbres" ?] dance the vocalist did abt 6:15 in apparent response to the drum roll there [*]. grin

Thanks for showing us something new (at least to me), Hugh !
-------------------------------------
BTW & FWIW, Zappa's Inca Rds showed up (at least for me---YT picking material based on viewers's habits) as a follow up.
Could almost beb an extension of the "Owls" track !
[& the close-ups of FZ's fingers during his solo are particularly helpful facepalm ]

I enjoy checking all of this stuff out.


I've been drawn back to the live album Emmylou Harris did with her incredible touring band, Spyboy, featuring New Orleans rhythm section of Brady Blade and Daryl Johnson and the incredible and vastly underrated Buddy Miller on guitar.

back in the '70's, when I was much THINNER and wore my hair in a PERM, my NICKNAME was "Q-Tip"! wink

I first heard Mon Laferte about 5 days ago, and in the days following, she's just demolished me. Her intensity's just off the f-n charts. I've sung myself to tears during gigs, too, but damn.

Mon Laferete's got an interesting vox timbre there...although it's diff in the other examples of her work I found.
That "little girl" tone kinda reminds me a bit of a less Edith Piaf, etc, but more importantly of someone more personal for me.
Victoria Williams, who here also steals a page from the Neil Jung gtr lesson book (2:18~2:42)



FWIW, here's Mon Laferte on gtr, too !


Thanks, Hugo !

Here's something absolutely new to me.
Got no idea who they are or anything at all.
After searching out a Jeff Healey clip to post here, I left the site running &, as happens, other material popped up.
Suddenly I heard this well, produced dynamic gtr solo over a string bank drifting somewhere beyond BBK's & Bill Szymczyk's version of "The Thrill Is Gone"
Dangalicious !


Who wants to tell me abt 'em or do I gotsta find out on my own ?!

Never heard of them before yesterday. Haven't listened to them yet. Can't say what my opinion is. Maybe when the throbbing in my head stops I will listen.

The clip at the top of the page is The Chemical Bros & doesn't seem to offer any blues content (although perhaps some discontent).
If yer axing abt the Blues Delight track,
that seems to be either Vincent Beaulne or possibly Laurent Trudel.

When I wake up in the dead of night, like tonight - already halfway through my 1st pot of coffee at 3:15 AM - I like to listen to something loud. This is what called to me this morning -

Well d, at the top of THIS page( and maybe for some reason at least on MY PC monitor) is indeed Blues Delight and a tune called "If I Had Money". And thanks for the name info. I'll try looking into it wink

Brother Winston I like it kind of quiet 1st thing in the morning...the wife has the TV on around 5am long before I get up between 6 and 7am. But she keeps the volume on the low down till I get my 1st cup of coffee! I can't imagine cranking the music up loud at 3am LOL! cool


Take care, Larryz

Ah, nice set of studio-quality headphones does it for me . . .

When I wake up, it's not a slow emerging from the gentle folds of sleep, or anything like that: all systems are firing, the meters are red-lining, and it's best to just get moving. I've gotten a lot of recording done, during the Hour of the Wolf.

"(The) Houri of (The) Woof" ?
...kinda sounds like somethin' from WW 2---like the LuftWolf or something.

Here's how we experienced wakers wake.
Phone clicks into alarm mode
(note that it's the phone that gets alarmed rather than I)
It plays the sound of a bird call that goes off every 5 minutes while I execute a series of stretches & limbering up-ish moves
Then at the proper moment
this Dirge For EnNightentment scares the cat & all the alien demons from my I'm-Mediate Invinci-Vincinity taz grin



Uh, so what's in yer ears ?

Well now, there IS a difference between "first thing" in the morning, and STAYING UP until 3am. I don't know ANYBODY who gets up at that hour. But then too, it HAS been many a moon since I STAYED UP that late! wink AND TOO, cranked up the tunes loud at that time. laugh

I'm pretty sure he was getting up 1st thing in the morning Fang...

I think it's great if it works for you Winston. I woke up about 3am last night but I refuse to get up that early to test out that writing with the wolf concept LOL! I learned long ago that when something keeps you from sleeping, you can stay in bed and meditate. Your body will still get the rest it needs. Getting up and writing material with headphones on is cool and keeps you from waking up the whole house! bor

Bergman's take on the Hour of the Wolf, for which he titled his film - "The hour between night and dawn. The hour when most people die, when sleep is deepest, when nightmares are most real. It is the hour when the sleepless are haunted by their deepest fears, when ghost and demons are most powerful, the hour of the wolf is also the hour when most children are born."

I feel right at home . . .

Back on topic, here's a haunted-sounding tune that I've loved for decades. Call it Art-Rock, Chamber Music for Psychotics, whatever you like . . .

"Can hats favor fire?
Can a hat aspire to higher things?"

"The hour between night and dawn..." idk
That must've been all the way back when the rapid turning of the Earth kept eveyone so spin-dizzy they were creating religions L & R & that rapid day/night/day/again thang allowed some folks to reach ages like 837...
Anywhat, I've heard that "Slappy Hat" track (as well as the unrelated Monty P trope)....the orchestral bits are prolly over my head in some ways but in places remind me of what George Martin did on "I'm Gonna Be A Walrus When I Grow Up' by Little Johnny Lennon.

That must be tiring. ALMOST as tiring as having everything you might post in this forum constantly taken out of context! I mean...whatever happened to critical thought? wink

It should have been crystal clear obvious that when I stated, "I don't know ANYBODY who gets up at that hour." that I also meant ON PURPOSE! rolleyes Sure, I understand....

Week before last I too, awoke at that ungodly hour with some scary physical sensations that caused me to both drive myself to the ER, on one occasion, and call EMS the second time(two days later) and with which the ER doctors, content enough with only being able to tell me what the problem WASN'T, sent me home. My regular doc adjusted my BP meds and since then there've been no repeats.

@Whitefang - Damn, brother, sorry about the scare! I hope that doesn't happen again.

BTW, I didn't misconstrue the intent of your statement. You know the old line about how "It is better to light one candle than curse the darkness"? I choose to get up, make coffee, let the dogs out and start my day, in the dead of night, because if I'm awake, I might as well be doing something, instead of lying in bed, doing nothing but wondering why I'm awake. I get things done, before the morning paper arrives.

Back on track, here's a tune I know you'll know and appreciate, first thing on a Sun Day morning . . .

Worry not Winston. Sure, it's happened again, but knowing it's NOT caused by anything life threatening (so far as anyone knows) I simply sat still in my chair and soldiered through it until it passed.

And I do that too, and have been for some time, (since my wife came home and was in a home-set hospital bed until her end). You know, get out of bed because just lying in bed wide awake got uncomfortable and that's when I would( and still) get up and get a "cuppa" and spend some time here and on other forums until time to get started on Alicia's daily care routine.

Missed him last time around. I think he's playing in NJ in October. I'm hoping to get up there to see that show. But it's really close in date to ProgStock, so not sure if I'll get wifely approval for both.

A few weeks ago I got that new CD by The Claypool Lennon Delerium called South of Reality. Those guys made it to the cover of Guitar Player magazine, and I liked the description of the music after reading the magazine interview with Claypool and Lennon, so I figured I'd give it a listen. It's weird music, sort of like if John Lennon (Sean Lennon's famous father) during the Yellow Submarine/White Album era decided to make a solo album that combined progressive and psychedelic rock. But it's good weird music, and I haven't taken the CD out of my CD player since I got it. If you get a chance, give it a listen.


I rock; therefore, I am.

Yeah, I heard some of the CLD stuff recently (they showed up in an AllMusic email).
They've actually been around for a few yrs.
Haven't seen that cover---new ?

Here's a vid/tune abt a most unusual (but actual) early NASA scientist.


Here's a live version posted b/c Lennon plays a couple semi-interesting gtr solos.
[BTW, I guess the name Men W/Hats was already taken rolleyes ]


They also exhibit an odd, to me at least, interest in historical artifacts. idk

One of our dogs is more music-centric than the other. Tonight, while I was cleaning the kitchen. I had YouTube on, pumping some assorted Bill Laswell on. This song got her COMPLETE attention.

Hmmmm, at what point did yer furry friend perk up her ears, Dan ?
Did they respond the same way at later hearings ?

They say McCartney had a special UHF tone patched into the exit groove of Sgt Pepper for his pet dog, Martha, & later in Wings there's a song, "Jet", that has the same name as one of his other pets.

Then there's this.

Beautiful music, beautifully played.

This is what I mean when I talk about "Technique in the service of music". That beautiful, clear tone is a result of technical excellence.

If you are now or were ever into the trip-hop, dream-pop and/or shoegaze genres, Chile's Amanitas are doing a damn good job of crossbreeding them into something kinda new. smile

I was recently helping someone find a tune from the 80s, so Iíve been binging on New Wave videos from that era. Good times! cool

Just picked up the new one from Rival Sons, and am going to be putting it in my carís CD changer when I go to the grocery in a few minutes. rawk

Forgot to mention, I picked up the new Chemical Brothers album....

Lots of electronic musicians would be proud to make that CD. The Chemical Brothers shouldnít be. Instead of leading the pack like they usually do, this sounded derivative. Dated. The only song I thought truly up to standards was ďWeíve Got To TryĒ.

Or, as my Mom put it, ďThis album sounds old.Ē

For diehards & completists only.

Not being familiar with The Chemical Brothers, I had to give a few listens on the YT.

Must say I wasn't much impressed. One would have to have been long into "Electronica" to know whether or not anything they did sounded "old" Not knowing the name of their newest album, nor how old your mom is for her to make that statement, well...

And there are those(like me) who think of other kinds of artists when the topic is ELECTRONIC music. Like, when I hear that said, I think of...

I know those musicians, and Mom is 73.

CB are more the dance side of things, and hit in the mid-1990s early 2000s.. Their biggest hits were, as I recall:

(With one of the Gallagher brothers from Oasis providing Vox)

(FWIW, that is not a drum machine on that track.)

Really..Lutherman,

Kinda like what you'd hear on MUSIC CHOICE's "Soundscapes" channel, or on some "Stress Busters" CD.

Liking this song and want to hear more from these guys-the beat is totally lifted from 'Closer' by Nine Inch Nails, but I like how they ran with it-


Same old surprises, brand new cliches-

Getting ready to go to the Marillion Weekend in Montreal. So, of course, plenty of Marillion in my ears...



Opening act Friday night is District 97. I've had the pleasure of seeing them once before, and look forward to hearing tracks from their brand new album. (This is from their last one.)



Saturday night's opener is Sylf, stage name of Marillion guitarist Steve Rothery's daughter.



Should be quite a weekend. High energy. Chill moments. Great fans & friends. And from what I hear, an amazing light show.

There was a band here in Louisiana, in a neighboring town called Lafayette (the heart of Cajun Country) in the '70s named Zuider Zee. Their manager hauled them to Memphis for a bit but they returned to Lafayette and actually scored a record contract with CBS records and put out an album in 1975 that stiffed (the production pushed them more ina soft rock direction, instead of their actual Abbey Road-era Beatles/Wings/Badfinger powerpop leanings) and they broke up, but a couple of years ago they gathered long lost demo recordings and released them on the Light In The Attic record label (which specializes in releasing lost recordings), and it's pretty much all I've wanted to listen to for a month or so since a friend hipped me to it and I tracked down a nifty orange vinyl copy... another friend said he was ina record store when the band's drummer was dropping off a bunch of copies of the record on consignment so he felt compelled to buy it immediately, and the guy was so happy that anybody cares about the band.

Damn! Thanks, p90jr. Great stuff!

I do think that I vaguely recall running across the name of that band long ago, but memory serves little else...

I've always liked the new African music that veers into rock territory. This guy - Bombino, from Niger - has been making my ears happy today...

Modern tunes I'm spinning:

District 97


Steve Hackett



A bit older:

Dug out Crack The Sky's "From The Greenhouse" album.



And as a further throwback, a Procol Harum best of. I have to learn a version of "A Salty Dog" by October. Might go with this live version, or Transatlantic's version to ad some of Roine Stolt's guitar parts.

For want of a better word, "suites" from rock albums. Think the 3 parts of Karn Evil 9 from ELP's Brain Salad Surgery, Ballet for a Girl in Bohannon from Chicago's 2nd album, and this, the last 2 minutes of which I'm listening to at the moment:

Ah, CEB, nice try! I haven't ever heard the Baby Shark song, and I don't intend to listen now, thank you!

OTOH, I went to a dear friend's birthday celebration last night, and Karaoke was part of the evening's entertainment. After some particularly excruciating renditions of tunes like Having My Baby, and Copacabana, I had to clear out my brain . . .

Baby Shark is huge. I went to an Illini football game a Saturday with the family and they played it on the Jumbotron. The Illini dance team did a routine. My daughter said that it‚Äôs really popular now and they had to sing it to patients while on pediatric clinicals recently. ūüėÄ
