GR – highly explosive

February 10th, 2010

An endless jam of gtr drum and bass with vocal delays, noise, feedbacks, spontaneous as hell, great music to get real wild with, GR just do it all the way, and they probably wont give a f… f…. if u like what they do or you don’t. We love it. Listen to the 7 minute of the incredinble ‘The inspector speaks’ and you`ll get our drift. Forgot to mention I love the guitar riffs.


Fountain

February 10th, 2010

Another bedroom project that we love , an instrumental album for Danny Paul Grody recorded at his home. DPG, founding member of SF bands Tarentel and the Drift, had made a dreamy acoustic guitar centered album, reminds me of albums made in the 70`s by American acoustic guitar players. Fountain is Released by Root Strata (Grouper), and we urge you to hurry up and get yourself a fresh copy, cause release is limited to 500.

The unbearable being of likeness

February 8th, 2010

We wrote about Mike Coykendall couple of months ago while listening to something he did with M. Ward. There is something about this guy and his music and attitude. I guess what impressed me the most was that it sounds so spontaneous and effortless. Maybe because the lofi end of it. So folks, there is a new album, ‘The unbearable being of likeness’, out on Field Hymns, and we love it. Mike Coykendall is an accomplished musician, player, engineer and producer. Very creative, and he keeps surprising you, with his unique songwriting, arrangements and instrumentation. It was impossible for me to listen to his record while doing something else. It required my attention constantly, and even now, after quite few times I have listened to the whole record, I still find it awesome. Cant decide what to share with you. Listen to the closing track ‘Wondeland’, maybe it doesn’t represent the sound of the whole album, but it`s still in my head. Enjoy, and buy the album

February 7th, 2010

A new Gil Scott-Heron album is coming out, after 14 years of silence. On February 9th, XL Records will release ‘I’m New Here’, produced by XL’s owner, Richard Russell. I chose to play you ‘Me and my devil’, a Massive attack kinda track. Monotonic loop and deep rolling sub. Awesome!!! Watch the photos of the Clinton studios sessions in NY.

The Marquee years

February 7th, 2010

We went drinking the other night and my friend was mentioning a gig that we saw in the Marquee club in 1978. I think it was Steve Hillage that we saw there, and after few days we went and saw Ultravox with John Fox. For those of you who are either two young or never heard the name, this is one of the most important venues in Europe, and I believe the Marquee is a mirror of British rock and pop music development of over 4 decades. Since its first days in 165 Oxford street during the late 50`s when it started as a jazz and Rhythm & Blues venu, where legends like Sonny boy Williamson, Alexis Corner and Cyril Davies played there regularly, and during the 60`s when it hosted the new generation of British Rhythm & Blues bands such as The Stones, The Bluesbreakers, The Yardbirds, and The Animals. In 1964 it had moved to it`s most famous location in Soho`s 90 Wardour street and witnessed the birth and rise of most important artists such as Hendrix, Bowie, Pink Floyd, Cream, Manfred Mann, The Who,. The Nice, Genesis, Yes, Led Zeppelin, King Crimson, just to name a few, till it became the leading club of the punk movement that had turned to new wave hosting bands from The Sex Pistols, to The Stranglers, The Police, U2, The Pretenders, The Cure and many more. Here is a list of about 200 great bands that performed in the club in the 20 years span from the 60`s through the 80`s.


Julian Plenti is Skyscraper

February 5th, 2010

Just received a mail from my good friend AZ: “2 songs i’ve been liking lately: Octoberman – dancing with your ghost & Julian Plenti: fly as you might.” We like them too. As for Julian Plenti, Here is ‘No chance survival’ of his ‘Julian Plenti is Skyscraper’ album on Matador. And here is his short & interesting bio:” From 1998 to 2003, Julian Plenti performed in and around Manhattan as an acoustic solo artist. Venues that played host include Tobacco Road, Pete’s Candy Store, The Knitting Factory, The Living Room, and “Lach’s Antihoot” at Sidewalk Cafe. In 2006 Plenti began to demo a selection of his music using Logic Pro. That selection took shape as “Skyscraper.” In the Fall of 2008 Mr. Plenti took the demoed album to the Seaside Lounge in Brooklyn to be re-recorded with live instrumentation. He hired session performers to play the string and horn arrangements, and also enlisted some friends. Mike Stroud of Ratatat and Charles Burst of The Occasion guest on “Skyscraper;” Sam Fogarino of Interpol plays drums on “Games For Days;” and Striker Manley of Stiff Jesus appears on “No Chance Survival” and “Fun That We Have.” Plenti will be playing select shows in support of ‘Julian Plenti is Skyscraper’.
