Lollapalooza 2009

June 16th, 2009

Check out the line up for this year`s Chicago`s Lollapalooza:


Finkmusic

June 15th, 2009

One of my favorite musicians/singer songwriters Fink together with maestro Andy Barlow on the production tip on this spacey acoustic track of the new album due in a month. Like his previous recording venture “Distance and time” that I loved – his ambient open chord guitar playing with minimalistic groove and strong clean deep bass lines. This is “Sort of revolution” video


Baker Lake

June 13th, 2009

 

Last time I have heard about her she was a drummer for label mates “Band of horses”. Now she writes sad minor melodic pop country songs. This is a poppy as my blog goes but I have listened to this song 20 times in a loop this weekend so here you are – Baker Lake by the real talented Sera Cahoone. Love this pedal steel part when the chorus sets in and on that little intro.

Baker Lake


Rafael Anton Irisarri

June 13th, 2009

Rafael Anton Irrisari`s music sounds like continuation of where Brian Eno has left off his ambient music ventures. Electro acoustic landscapes with lots of space and place to breathe. I like the emphasis on acoustic rather than electronic. I am not a big fan of ambient music but Rafael`s music sounds real and authentic to me. Especially the first track on his myspace . Check out “Hopes and past desires


Tiny vipers

June 11th, 2009

Jesy Fortino`s recordings for the new album began at home and were then interpreted by Andrew Hernandez in a classic analog studio in Austin, TX. Retaining both the glow of her work on guitar and the strength of her voice, Hernandez has captured the organic nature mirrored in the concepts of the album. A special effort was made to keep the recordings as authentic as possible: Voice and guitar the way we like it.

M. Jackson

June 4th, 2009

 

Meshach Jackson`s truth:
All of my childhood friends had criminal records.
We lived together in the house my parents built for them.
They were lost, rejected, abused – until they found my family.
I never knew not knowing them.
Louisiana gave me the weeping open eyes of life.
Texas brought me the struggle and shame of becoming a man.
New York was my home the moment I saw her.
Nashville stretched out her arms to welcome me, though I didn’t want her.
Music, and the Heavenly sound of Gospel choirs and soulful preachers, through it all, has been… mine.
Listen to Hopeless

Kashmir

June 4th, 2009

 

This is about the Danish band Kashmir and about the recording process of their Tony Visconti produced album:During the mixing session in New York, Kashmir and Visconti played around with an instrumental track, and then decided it would be intriguing to add a spoken role to complete it. Kasper had written a poem, “Black Building”, but the dark, atmospheric track asked for a special kind of voice. They came up with the idea of asking Lou Reed if he would do the part, and he soon returned having decided to join in. His voice truly completes the track “Black Building”. Another track, “The Cynic”, is a duet featuring David Bowie.
While recording in Copenhagen, Kashmir had a vision of having David Bowie singing part of the track.
Mr. Bowie already knew of the band, and was delighted to participate. Check out this kick a… song of theirs Surfing the warm industry


From Texas

June 4th, 2009

This is of the Sarah Jarosz Bio section on her site:
….”The making of Song Up In Her Head with producer Gary Paczosa (John Prine, the Duhks, Chris Thile) was a comparatively simple affair, given that it had to be scheduled around her high school classes and that she was learning how studios worked while making the album. (Learn she must have; Jarosz is credited as co-producer.)
“We started pre-production in March of last year,” she says, “and then we really started diving into it around June of last year. I cut the majority of it in Nashville, at Gary Paczosa’s studio. We had a session here at Blue Rock Studio in Wimberley, and I traveled up to New York City in December to record with Chris Thile and Paul Kowert. We did one little thing at Blackbird Studio in Nashville. And then we did one more song at [Dixie Chick] Martie McGuire’s studio in Austin. Gary was working with her at her studio, and I was able to record one of my songs there”…

AA

I know nothing of A A Bondy. Just heard “Killed myself when I was young” and loved it. Went to his myspace and discovered 404264 entries and realized I have to do some catching up on this guy`s resume. Loved “There`s a reason” as well. listen
