"Because he couldn't think of what to call his unique, highly intricate, harmonically advanced hybrid of acoustic bluegrass, folk, and jazz without leaning toward one idiom or another, he offhandedly decided to call it "dawg music" -- a name which, curiously enough, has stuck."

here is a find that a friend turned me on to this spring. karl hector and the malcouns. contains refelections of afrobeat, funk, jazzyiness and psych (like the band "can"). fun party music and rewards careful listening. fans of budos, monophonics etc need to check this out. always puts a smile on my face.

Don't know where I read this review but I was pretty sure it was something I would enjoy. "

"Like a handful of Ambien and a glass of Scotch taken aurally."

Continuing with some more Elena Tonra from the Daughter group's recording If You Leave.

A bit less Ambien at work here.

I've been somewhat 'stuck' on a few albums/bands recently:

High On Fire - 'Luminiferous' ... I love High on Fire, and Sleep for that matter, there are a few tracks on this album that make me stop and air guitar no matter what I'm doing. That, in my mind, is the measure of a damn good song.

Wolves in the Throne Room - Thrice Woven .... really their whole catalog. I don't remember how I heard of this band, I think it was a Tidal recommendation from me listening to so much Neurosis... very awesome band, very different for a black metal band.

also been listening to Lorde - Melodrama. Another great album from her.

and, as always, listening to lots of Unsane...

Clearly i'm mostly in a ~metal mood lately, mostly.

E-Gone - All the Suns of the Earth


interesting and unique. there is a song clip here and more at the listing for the lp version. the song with vocals is a clunker to me - the rest shine.

This one I can't say is rock, it may fuse a bit of world music, I guess it's best described as "Peter Gabriel Music".

edit: I suppose the single "Shock The Monkey" is kinda rock/new wave/something or other. It was the single back in the day.

nordub! ambient cool jazz and electronics over dub reggae.

strong dub backbone carries it securely. for me it was love at first note.

Sly & Robbie Meet Nils Petter Molvær Feat Eivind Aarset And Vladislav Delay - Nordub

Wow, that’s cool. Not the Sly and Robbie that I remember, and in a blind test I would have quessed Fun Boy 3 before S&R but this is good drift. I just bought it. Thanks!

In the Hall of the Synchrocyclotron King ... or Queen as the case may be. Plus a theremin and a red jumpsuit. What’s not to like?

“No one would have seen this coming, but it's as natural as loving a great album can be. Petra Haden renders the classic album, The Who Sell Out, in its entirety -- fake commercials and all -- and she does it a capella. She has a voice and sensibilities to make this work as she performs both the lyrics and components from the Who's instrumental tracks. It is the latter which is particularly affecting, her choices addressing how many fans of the original album would also identify a song's key characteristics. Townshend's guitar parts in particular are sung with virtuosity and unmistakable glee. Far from being a mere stunt, this set works on its own as well as giving one pause, reconsidering the original work in a new light.”
