Hung up on your sexy groove

December 11th, 2008

My affair with El Michels affair is short and intense. Few times, while watching a movie, I have realized that a track of this album would sound better than the original soundtrack.

Hung up on my baby


Malcolm Cato

December 11th, 2008

                                                                                               

Trying to figure out what genre to put The Heliocentrics under and eventually gave up.
On their Myspace it says Progressive, Jazz, Afro-beat so I`ll go with that.
Led by drummer Malcolm Cato who was sampled by Madlib, with the help of Mike Burbham who does excellent job on the texture and efx, and others contributing on Thai guitar, Santur, Oud, Clarinets, Tenor and Baritone saxes, Vibes and Percussion, and Khdijatou Silcott on vocals. This album I have been listening to – Out there is a mix of hip hop, funk, jazz, electronic, avante garde and ethnic music, a landscape of beautiful sounds, this album is more of a soundtrack. I have read on their Stonesthrow records artist page that their music is influenced from James Brown`s funk,  Sun Ra`s weirdness and the cinematic scope of Ennio Morricone -I am sure you `ll agree to that after listening to this track

Its been a Bradford Cox day today…

December 10th, 2008

Its been a Bradford Cox day today. Deerhunter, Atlas Sound, Deerhuntertheband blogspot. I put “Rained” on repeat and played it about 15 times while doing my illustration class homework, watercolor lesson.The goal is to start staining the paper try not without thinking of the outcome, then this stained shape into a bird. I admit it didn’t really work out for me and this came out instead while hypnotized by “Rained”.

I have downloaded this haunting ambient guitar piece called Guitar one (free download on the Atlas sound blog). I admit I envy this guy Bradford. He is all over the place and seems to be doing so productive.Just reading hid blog made me dizzy. I wish I was Bradford…..without the Marfan Syndrome I guess. I have watched a brand new video by Deerhunter today called “Cover me slowly”, listened to “Let the blind lead those who see but cant feel” by” Atlas sound” and played couple of Deerhunter`s recent tracks. The thing I like the most about this guy besides the creativity and originality are the unique and musical guitar rolls. Anyone who plays the guitar knows it is not that easy to come up with the unusual. When you pick up a guitar, the better guitar player you, you`ll tend to jump and play the known and familiar and whatever you do best, kinda automatic mode.But Bradford, oh no, this guy doesn’t do the obvious. Awesome.

Rachael Wright

December 6th, 2008

“Rachael’s music hits you straight away…Extremely talented!” – BBC Radio “Rachael left each & every member of the audience spellbound with her beautiful songs & gorgeous voice. Her songs posess the kind of magic that cannot go anywhere except to your heart & soul. The only thing to do is to surrender to their beauty!” -I love her music so much that I felt my words and poor language wont do her and her music justice so I found others that do it better.

La bella vista

December 6th, 2008

La Bella Vista was captured in just two recording sessions, yet is one of Harold Budd’s most gorgeous, ambient piano compositions to date. Budd has said that he wasn’t aware that he was even being recorded by Daniel Lanois while he improvised in this social setting. Fans of Budd’s ambient works are already familiar with graceful, textured, minimalist approach, and La Bella Vista is in keeping with these principles.

Here is what is

December 5th, 2008

It’s the third time I have been watching “Here is what is” -the relatively new Daniel Lanois “in the studio” documentary.I have been following Lanois career practically since Eno had discovered him and his brother`s studio work in Canada. Soft spoken, with heavy french accent, surrounded by celeb friends and megastar musicians, sitting in his incredible mansion/castle studios, where a control room/studio partition is not required. As Lanois is saying, the engineers should be sitting with the musicians, that way the result will sound more musical.Sitting in a room filled with vintage mics, amps, keboards and console, fingers on the faders, he teaches the viewer the ingridients of great album making. The movie is about feel, mutual respect,musicianship and lots of experience and knowledge. The recording chain is very important: Good sounding instrument, Good sounding amp, Great mic and placement and a suitable sounding room for that role, good compressors preamps and cables, good musicianship and feel. He succeeds in capturing all on tape.During the movie he is saying;”..I am trying to make a film that`s beautiful in itself, about beauty, about the source of the art rather than everything that surrounds the art”…. The movie is magical, and the players are incredible: Brian Blade, what a great sounding drummer and kit(an old Gretch), and the Genius of Garth Hudson with his incredible piano and Hammond playing. Last but not least, the “church in the suitcase” of his, the pedal steel, which is my favorite instrument and his forte, and you could hear his incredible playing through the whole movie..


Be good

December 5th, 2008

The be good Tanyas is My favorite band over the last few years. Since hearing their amazing “Chinatown” album – my musical direction has changed tremendously. After listening to this wonderful dark minimal alternative indie country folk of the awesome Canadian trio headed by the lovely and most talented Sam Parton I was hooked. Songs like “Junkie Song”, “Dogsong 2”, “Human Thing”, “In Spite Of All The Damage”, “A Thousand Tiny Pieces” and many grat others. I was hooked. It led me to many wonderful and talented friends of theirs and great new music and labels and opened a completely new direction for me. This is a must. Especially the “Chinatown” album which is the inspiration for this site


Savath Y Savalas

December 5th, 2008

Savath Y Savalas`s myspace describes their music style as other, latin, psychedelic. This sounds so musical and fascinating. Sounds like Brian Eno in Spanish with some help from David Byrne. Sounds like a great collage of sounds. Great for weird movie scenes


Chris Pierce

December 5th, 2008

Saw him live on “morning becomes ecclectic” in the studio with his band -straight to the point no bullshit stuff. Great song…

Oojami

December 5th, 2008

The brainchild of Necmi Cavli, originally a native of Bodrum – a popular Turkish holiday resort nestling on the banks of Aegean Sea. He moved to London in the nineties and started DJ’ing his own music in a small basement club in the Turkish quarter of North London. Over the last 6 years Oojami has produced 3 albums (internationally released on Miles Copland’s (ex-manager of Sting and the Police) label, played hundreds of gigs in over 15 countries, including a tour of the US/Canada, and featured on more than 30 compilations around the world. Recently he’s begun writing soundtracks for major Hollywood movies, and his music has been licensed to EMI Arabia – the biggest label in the Middle East.
