“In July we’re releasing the first of a few eps sort of unraveling Heavy Ghost with remixes, alternate versions, covers and some new material. We started thinking about this sort of thing after we were approached by a few folks wanting to remix the songs. And then I started sort of compiling remixes and half-finished songs of my own into little groups, and, well you know, what starts as a mess of incongruous sounds become a new little body, a system, and then you name it and then record label people want to sell it. I’m thrilled!This is a good morning. My older sister came to visit for the weekend — we took long walks and ate and ate and ate and I got to introduce her to a bunch of my friends, to my co-op, to bloomington and the mid-west, drunk teenagers, french food, and my new Hofner guitar. Little 500 weekend meant that the town was abnormally rowdy and terrifically/tragically drunk off its 5 inch pumps. Beer cans in the yard! Plant a beer tree!”…

This is all Cosmo Baker’s fault. I mean, I’ve always loved Saadiq going back to the TTT days, but hearing Cosmo’s mix of his work really put it all in perspective. Raphael Saadiq is a genius. Period. Just listen and you’ll see. From Tony! Toni! Tone! & Stevie Wonder to Q-Tip & DJ Quik, he is just that dude.So, without jumping further on his nuts…fast forward a couple days later and I’m driving around town bumping this CD. “Still Ray” came on and stayed on and that’s when I knew I had to re-do it (now I know how Dre must’ve felt).
I came home and listened to it, figured out the piano part and played everything else from there. Once I was finished I called my man Miles Bonny to lay down vocals and trumpet like only he can and here it is, free for you.
Check out Bill Callahan`s ”Cold blooded old times” on Pitchfork`s Dont look down.
I have promised myself I would not write about bands everyone loves to write about. Blitzen Trapper is one of those bands, especially after the 2008 release of “Furr”. This band is becoming one of those American favored bands, and the route they are taking reminds me REM`s during the Eighties . But I had to embed this video cause this is what this site is about. This is pure musicianship, great sounding acoustic live track, with just what`s needed. Each and every note is in the pocket. Real small, just right. Awesome
We have been constantly playing The pink mountaintops recent album “Outside love”. They have just released a free song called “While we were dreaming”. Check it out
I have seen him live with the BBQ show: awesome, I was speechless. Took my wife to see him a night after . Incredible, although he had promissed to play on our wedding and broke his promise. I forgive him. Check out this 8mm video directed by Prichard Smith.

Casey from Eat records in Greenpoint Brooklyn has A weekly internet radio show on East Village Radio. It focuses on experimental music with the occasional foray into psychedelia and obscure pop….Ethnic folk musics and blues forms are also represented. This instrumental sounds like a soundtrack piece to David Lynch movie, or a variation of the Twin Peaks theme.
Reminds me of a sound of an 80`s new wave band, updated (As heard on MKOB). That`s what is says on their bio page:
