Steve Hauschildt - Tragedy & Geometry
Jerry Garcia & Mickey Hart - 11/28/73 (kind of proto-New Age-ish raga space jams)
Charalambides - Exile
Holy Other - With U

It's mainly songs I liked from 2010 and some older stuff I got into in 2010:

Alice Cooper - I'm Eighteen
Magic Kids - Summer
Nellie McKay - Adios
Hall & Oates - Your Imagination
The BPA (Feat. David Byrne & Dizzee Rascal) - Toe Jam
Vampire Weekend - Diplomat's Son
Dungen - something off of Skit I Allt, I think "Marken Lag Stilla"?
Midlake - Small Mountain
Tallest Man on Earth - Love Is All
Mose Allison - I'm Alright
Tanya Morgan - Don't U Holla
Electronic - Get the Message
Heavenly - Skipjack
Neil Young - Walk On

actually don't know anything about four tet, though i guess i've heard the name. he's the "electronic" element of this collab i take it?

Wow, this Hebden/Reid/Gustafsson is great!

William (C), Tuesday, 29 November 2011 22:26 (nine years ago) link

yeah i don't know four tet either - they are like in the vein of caribou or stuff like that? matmos?

anyway, this isn't really like electronic pop in any way, the electronics are mostly textural, like on Lulu

^^^ dunno if vimeo's embed like youtubes do but that video got me to give dubstep a second chance

also lcd soundsystem's several awesome videos (many in 720) totally got me back into listening to them, even though they're over. this one's kinda perdy and sad, like the song itself

Someone tell me whether Dan Fogelberg's worth checking out. I know a couple of the obvious hits, but having sampled a couple of the early eighties ones I'm wondering if he isn't one of those quietly weird Al Stewart types.

Lord Sotosyn, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 02:01 (nine years ago) link

moonbop OTM, especially if you're into spiritual hat jazz. Rhythmatism is also good but start with Nova: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpBUbWCq5Fc

Reid and Hebden recorded a couple of albums before Reid died last year, though I only know the Steve Reid Ensemble album that Soul Jazz put out, which is also pretty good.

I'm not saying it's the greatest song in the world, but it could have been on a Superchunk/Butterglory/Sammy/Sebadoh/etc. album or something pretty easily, and the video is very cute. Inspiring a lot of 90's nostalgia...

thelonious monk's alone in san francisco, while reading a biography of his (interesting note: he apparently popularizd a seventh chord where you just play the root and the seventh, creating a dissonant sound).

also, this jazz piano trio album; not a genre i'm normally into, but there's an emotional heft to this (or at least that's what i'm hearing) that drawing me to it.

Been listening to the Dead. A lot.

Cooper was just in town, there is a Bitchin Bajas European tour in the works for next year as well as another music+visuals thing at the local indie theater that they are gonna do in Quadrophonic sound! The same guys that put out Water Wrackets are putting out the collaboration with Olivia Wyatt some time next year in an lp+dvd package.

Mr. Farmer, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 15:42 (nine years ago) link

do they do events like that in chicago? i'm not really involved with the "let's play at this makeshift space" types of shows here -- maybe they do this all the time, i have no idea. euro tour sounds a little more exciting though, i'd imagine.

league of women voters, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 15:57 (nine years ago) link

It seems like they do things like that every once in a while, but I'm really not sure. Cave is going on an Australian tour next year, as well. That is pretty exciting. Not quite as exciting as going to Japan with Thurston Moore (which is what another ex-band mate of mine, from a different band, is doing next year). I have to admit, I'm glad that my former bandmates, who actually possess some talent and skill, are moving on to bigger and better things in that realm.

Oh certainly! I am glad that I can live vicariously through their rocker exploits, I've never been cut out for life on the road. I really don't envy the pro-musician lifestyle...much.

tylerw_sandbox, Tuesday, 27 December 2011 16:55 (nine years ago) link

did you get the LPs? i think i liked the 2nd or 3rd one best. it all kind of blurs together after a while. the song about getting high on jesus is pretty great. there was an awesome track called "don't make me kill you" too. i haven't sat down to read/listen very intently -- the books are super crammed with info.

as for the business model, i always just figured that they have high standards, are savvy w/r/t marketing to the people who will actually purchase their product, and aren't particularly cheap.

I've gotten on a James Brown kick and got a couple more of his CDs, specifically "In The Jungle Groove" and "Motherlode.

This track "Since You Been Good" is just mindboggingly good. Clyde Stubblefield and Bootsy just rip this thing apart. I really love the sound of this real stripped down JB to just the rhythm section and guitar. I suppose this might have been done with the intention of overdubbing the horns at a later date.
