At Home with..

May 27th, 2012

On the top left corner of his homepage it states: “Raymond Scott is a Composer, inventor, pianist, engineer, electronic music pioneer, and a control freak”.. I admire this dude’s work for quite some time now, and could never understand how it works together, you know, being a control freak and an innovator at the same time. I mean, if you want to leave the path, you got to let go off the stirring wheel, got to bend them rules, and when you hold on, you might loose the freakin edge. I guess you guys will never have to worry about shit like that cause, somehow he managed to do some serious damage…and for more than half a decade. This piece is almost 60 years old, and it hits my slimy soul exactly in the right place…..still does today..


It Hurts

October 2nd, 2011

Charles Hurts is a band from Belfast and they sound like a 50`s – 60`s type band, although I could swear the vocals are 80`s vocals. This song is real fun though, I found myself humming parts of it all day today. Check it out, ‘Like Glue’.

 


Dirty Beaches

September 10th, 2011

David Lynch, Tarantino, Slim Twig, The Soft moon, Elvis, Jim Jarmusch , Uma Thurman, Nicholas Cage, Luis Vasquez,  This album makes me think about all those people, movie scenes, sights and schizophrenia. Check out Alex Zhang Hungtai AKA Dirty Beaches excellent album – ‘Badlands’. Although  its not a new release and its not the first time we write about this dude, we thought  just in case you have slept on it , listen to this and grab it on their Bandcamp. Special thanks to Soren little brothers for recommending this gem to us. The whole record is a blast, by the way..

 


Its Klaus Von Barrel again

August 24th, 2011

It’s the second time we talk about Klaus Von Barre, the man behind The KVB, and recently Die Jungen . Inspired by the 50s and 60s and still sounds contemporary, something out of a David Lynch movie, or a track Nicolas Cage could cover afterwards in shown in a romantic scene . I really love this album ‘Just a dream’ out now and waiting for you on Bandcamp for a bargain price.

 


Die Jungen

February 23rd, 2011

Again and again, when we come across a lofi pop gem like Die Jungen`s 6 track album, the latest project of Southampton resident Klaus von Barrel, (mainly known for his work with The KVB), and we add another bedroom project to our resume, we feel we achieve our goal by exposing those almost completely hidden talents. This venture is a gorgeous mix of lofi pop 50`s style, dark, hazy and melancholic.I love what Henning, our friend from No Fear in Pop wrote about Closer to the end, talks about the fading memory of our youth. He says that we guess it wont be all good at the end, but at least we would be able to find comfort in music like this, music that would soothe the great pain.Special thanks to Henning for the find.

Die Jungen – Drowning


Our day

January 20th, 2011

Rachel Grimes`s score to Our Day, a film by Wallace Kelly, brought the Kelly family back to life, and filled this little 16mm homemade black and white silent movie with colorful tones. Our day is a portrait of the Kelly family in Lebanon, Kentucky, and documents a home inhabited by adults with sophisticated interests and simple pleasures, and captures suburban Southern life during the depression in a vivid way. Kelly was an accomplished painter, photographer and writer. He began shooting his film in 1929 and continued till the 50`s.


I need that record

April 25th, 2010

Records, vinyl, albums, record shops. For those who grew up almost half a century ago and were and hopefully still are into music, it is almost a way of life. The smell, the sound, the excitement that brings you new release, or the anticipation of an important album from a significant artist, you know, Bowie, Beatles, Genesis, Yes, Pink Floyd, Zappa, and so on and so forth. I believe more and more readers of this blog, recognize mostly the mp3 icon on their desktop, no disrespect, and soon enough wouldn’t know what a CD looks like, and I am afraid, hardly ever been to a record store. It is a new era of digital downloads, itunes, emusic, sharing, youtube, facebook, twitter and myspace. My 13 yr old daughter listens to songs blasting of her mobile phone cheesy speaker streaming of youtube. Continue reading the entire article


Willie Mitchell R.I.P

January 20th, 2010

Willie Mitchell is dead. An accomplished trumpeter who led one of the region`s premier bands of the 50`s, and a recording star during the 60`s at Hi records. At Hi he was producing, engineering, and scouting for talent and eventually running the label. Willie Mitchell created his own and unique Memphis sound. He had put together one of the world`s greatest rhythm sections, with Teenie Hodges on guitar, Charles Hodges on organ, Leroy Hodges on bass and Howard Grimes on drums. He had turned Ann Peebles, Otis Clay and Syl Johnson into stars. I hear samples of his records up until this day. In 1968 he had met with a tremendous talented, Al Green, and brought him down to Memphis to make him a mega star. In 2008 he had received The Trustees Award during the 50th annual Grammy award ceremony. I `ll share you a 45 of his that I have founf on ‘The A side’

She & M. ward

September 8th, 2009

A little bit about She & Him: “The She & Him story begins when in 2006 , renowned one man band M. Ward, recorded a duet with a girl named Zooey Deschanel. A delightful recording session, the experience lead to a dialogue between the two about collaborating further. This, in turn, led to Deschanel admitting to secretly making dozens and dozens of home demos and hoarding them like acorns for the winter. Sick and tired of being stingy and secretive about music, Deschanel realized that if songs were acorns then this was indeed her wintertime: she sent the recordings to Ward and these demos became the basis for their first record, entitled Volume One.”
Please please please, let me get what I want


Dreams come true

September 5th, 2009

Cass Mccombs with this clip for the wonderful song “Dreams come true girl”, feat Karen Black. Great yet so simple, childlike groove, and fifties guitar parts.
