Mike Coykendall

September 12th, 2009

I have seen credits on an M Ward album. Then I have looked into it and found a whole wonderful world. It is called Mike Coykendall, and he is a funny guy as well, so I have copy pasted his bio, in his own words. Part of it, anyways, the info that interests me about production and his recent solo stuff.
…”Over the last few years, after moving to Portland (OR) in ’99 from San Francisco, I’ve had a great amount of creative fun producing and engineering records for some great musicians and songwriters. Some of those that I’ve worked with include M Ward (Transfiguration of Vincent, Transistor Radio), Richmond Fontaine (Post to Wire, The Fitzgerald), Beth Orton (unreleased as far as I know), Tin Hat Trio (Book of Silk) and many other praiseworthy artists. Having the home attic studio here in Portland has been great. I’ve wanted this ever since that first 4-track. It’s allowed me to create with others and actually make a little money in music for the first time. The funny thing is, I basically wanted the studio to record my stuff first and other peoples stuff second. It’s worked out the other way around, but that’s cool, it’s been great. Wouldn’t change a thing”….
“…Finally, just over the last few days, I’ve wrapped up (or reluctantly cut loose) the record I’ve been making “in the cracks” over the last year or so. It’s been quite a journey. It’s almost driven me crazy a few times. Anyway, the record is called “Hello Hello Hello” which was the last three words from the lyric of the last song”….”Mix a little song craft with the experimentation of just messing around like I used to do with that worn out 4-track. Did I mention that it almost drove me crazy? All I can say is I had a blast but honestly sweat the sweat over this one. It felt like I almost lost control of it a couple times, but I fought it back onto the road with only mild abrasions. Anyway, I’ve had my fun and now it’s yours if you want it:.


Some Heavy s….

September 12th, 2009


I don’t know much about The Heavys background or about the personal, but the album I just bought titled ” Great venegeance and furious fire” is one of the greatest albums I have recently litened to. Funky, Lofi, dirty, distorted vocals and drms, no pretty boy shit, great rockin songs. It is like Jack White meets OutKast meets Chocolate genius meets …. There are so many great tracks on this album and I didn’t know which one to share with you. I have decided on this slow one, Doing fine.


Blood, looms and blooms

September 12th, 2009


Since she has released her last album eight years ago, Iran-born Leila Arab has lost both of her parents . Maybe that`s part of the reason why her music is still real dark, and you cant blame her for being too poppy. Leila’s trip hop new effort titled Blood, looms and blooms on Warp records features many known names: Terry Hall, Martina Topley Bird, Andy Cox and others. This is not an easy album to listen to, and for me it was especially hard to get to the second track just because I love the opening track so much – Mollie. I decided to share it with u after the twentieth time I have been listening to it, mainly while driving at night.


Music from Angola

September 12th, 2009

I would describe The Kafala brothers music as folk music from Angola. Accompanied by guitar and a flute, and sung using rich authentic harmonies, their music is so unique, their style is theirs, and they tell their culture stories of wars, relations, sadness and joy with great conviction. Released their debut Ngola in 89 on Calabash music.

…And I like this punk band as well. Abe Vigoda


September 9th, 2009

The project is called Jaydiohead from “Minty fresh beats” coming straight from N.Y and the track is called “Wrong prayer”. It is actually a Mashup of Radiohead`s “I might be wrong” and Jay Z`s Prayer from American Gangsta

Wrong prayer

Johnny foreigner are 3 guys from Birmingham. They say:”… we dont go out too much and we have a tendency to overcompensate. we write noisy pop songs for people what like the same bands as we do…”

Siegfried Soundtrack

September 9th, 2009

First time I have heard “The Calm blue sea” was few days ago, and it was the original score they did for “Siegfried”. First thing that came to my mind was Pink Floyd`s Live at Pompaii, Echoes (Meddle), maybe The Calm blue sea tend to be more elaborate and technical but something about the vibe and atmosphere reminded me of that show and record.
