That Gunn/Truscinski track is pretty cool. Covers a lot of interesting territory, way more "pleasant" than I was expecting for some reason, but it really hit the spot today. Thanks for posting.

yeah, kinda starts to boogie after a while.

Totally boogies, in a "the clouds are parting, let the sun shine in" kinda way, which is really working on a late Friday afternoon for me.

grandavis, Friday, 24 February 2012 20:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

And, similarly, this Rangda clip posted on that bleakblissblog is super-pretty and pleasant with added Sir Richard shredding added on. Also made my afternoon:

Hope I get to see them at some point, what a powerhouse line-up.

Wow, really really digging this Haino O'Rourke Ambarchi track that Dusted has streaming from their review today (it's unedited, and like 25 minutes long, and awesome!)

Strongly recommend going and checking it out

grandavis, Wednesday, 14 March 2012 15:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

listening now, sounds rad. thanks for the tip! i haven't listened to many of the recent o'rourke-related improv stuff, but this is making me want to!

tylerw, Wednesday, 14 March 2012 15:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

Hadn't listened to much either, but this gets pretty rocking, has me very interested as well.

grandavis, Wednesday, 14 March 2012 16:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

May need to severely upgrade the "pretty rocking" statement btw

grandavis, Wednesday, 14 March 2012 16:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

lol yeah. sweet krautrock groove + out of control skronk. i like.

Hah, yeah, it is. Haino tends to generate a lot of hyperbole, but it's part of the fun of liking Haino.

Bay Area heads - Turkish psych legend Erkin Koray is going to be visiting Aquarius Records this Saturday for a meet & greet/signing, in what is I believe his first ever US visit (that's what the guy at Aquarius said - at the very least his first promotional event in the US)...

Wow, really enjoying this Chris Forsyth record "Paranoid Cat":

http://soundcloud.com/chris-forsyth/sets/paranoid-cat-1/

Lots of interesting folks on it, e.g., Hans Chew, Marc Orleans, Nate Wooley, a guy from Mountains. Really hitting a lot of sweet spots for me, just a great well-rounded guitar record. Cool solos, melodic playing, some weirdo moves here and there. I tried listening to Peeessseye or whatever the spelled version of that band is, and didn't really dig it, can anyone suggest other stuff by this guy, or a good PSI record? Also, go listen to "Paranoid Cat". Family Vinyard write-up mentioned some Richard Lloyd-isms, but seems much more like a Verlaine guy to me.

grandavis, Thursday, 12 April 2012 17:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

Good call Grandavis, really good shit. I had never heard of him before but will definitely be investigating further.

Damo Suzuki's Parrot, Saturday, 14 April 2012 22:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

The record Forsyth did with Koen Holtkamp (the aforesaid guy from Mountains) is really excellent too! You can listen to the whole thing here...

Damo Suzuki's Parrot, Saturday, 14 April 2012 23:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

Thanks for the Chris Forsyth tipoff, that's really nice. Must check out the Blackest Rainbow thing too, Koen Holtkamp is usually ace.

Been away from a computer for a bit, thanks for the heads up NickB. Going to listen to that Holtkamp/Forsyth stuff later today.

Gonna chime in with Damo here to say that "New Pharmacist Boogie" is really cool.

I fucked up the link a little bit btw. Both tracks are here:

Hah. To clear this up for anyone still confused, "New Pharmacist Boogie" is the second song from the Chris Forsyth album "Paranoid Cat" linked above.

grandavis, Tuesday, 17 April 2012 17:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

cosmic dead sound radical, thanks!

yeah they appear to know what they are doing.

Early days but I am liking a lot about the Psychonaut album. Keep this thread rolling people.

Damo Suzuki's Parrot, Tuesday, 17 April 2012 21:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

um just for clarification, are you talking about the Cosmic Dead album, or is that a new band I have yet to hear of?

when will Jesus bring the composition chops? (loves laboured breathing), Tuesday, 17 April 2012 22:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

I dunno, but I ponied up for the live Cosmic Dead recordings and while they're spotty in sound quality (not too, just a little) they are consistent with the monster groove.

I have been listening to the whole Chris Forsyth cannon. The guy is amazing. Has Koen Holtkamp done some good shit as well? Because the Mountains didn't do that much for me. Maybe I need to give it another try.

I'm a fan of KH's solo work but then I like Mountains too so idk.

Eternal Tapestry's World Out Of Time comes out tomorrow on Thrill Jockey. Anyone heard 'em? Portland based members of Jackie-O Motherfucker and Plankton Wat explore their love of Neu! and Sonny Sharrock. They're prolific, having released Dawn in 2 Dimensions earlier this year, Beyond the 4th Door last year, and collaborated with Sun Araw on Night Gallery last year, and have three other albums.

Fastnbulbous, Monday, 12 November 2012 18:31 (1 year ago) Permalink

Yeah, I like those dudes and pre-ordered the new one from Thrill Jockey (along with the Golden Void). Dawn in 2 Dimensions was great, as was the Plankton Wat disc from earlier this year, really anxious to hear it. Also super anxious for new Oneida.

HAPPY BDAY TOOTS (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 12 November 2012 19:10 (1 year ago) Permalink

There's a used copy of World Out Of Time right now at Reckless WP. There was also one of Golden Void but I snagged it! I forgot the Oneida is out tomorrow - I have not been able to find any preview of it.

Fastnbulbous, Monday, 12 November 2012 21:37 (1 year ago) Permalink

I heard it in my local shop. It's pretty gnarly. They are getting more abstract and noisy. It's not as minimal as Absolute II, but it's no more uh tuneful. I didn't buy it cuz I'm just not in the mood for that right now, I'm anxious enough as it is.

Trip Maker, Monday, 12 November 2012 21:46 (1 year ago) Permalink

I'm glad to hear they are getting more abstract and noisy, I was midly disappointed by Absolute II.

HAPPY BDAY TOOTS (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 12 November 2012 22:04 (1 year ago) Permalink

Man, how long has it taken you guys to get packages from Thrill Jockey? My Eternal Tapestry and Golden Void package shipped ten days ago, nothing yet. Seems weird.

HAPPY BDAY TOOTS (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 19 November 2012 14:40 (1 year ago) Permalink

do you ever get stuff you order? Or do you have the mailman with the coolest record collection?

EZ Snappin, Monday, 19 November 2012 14:42 (1 year ago) Permalink

I'm starting to think so, heh. I don't know, I've suddenly hit a really bad stretch of not getting stuff I've ordered online. Which, y'know, isn't a good sign since this will be the only way to order records in the near future.

HAPPY BDAY TOOTS (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 19 November 2012 14:44 (1 year ago) Permalink

Unfortunately, Thrill Jockey is one of the few places I regularly order from that doesn't give you a tracking option.

HAPPY BDAY TOOTS (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 19 November 2012 14:46 (1 year ago) Permalink

best of luck man. That's incredibly annoying.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 19 November 2012 14:48 (1 year ago) Permalink

Thanks. Yeah, super annoying. The weird thing this time is that I had this latest package sent to work instead, trying to suss out if it was a problem with my mail delivery at home.

HAPPY BDAY TOOTS (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 19 November 2012 14:51 (1 year ago) Permalink

Dawn in 2 Dimensions is great! Will keep my eye out for them at the store!!

I saw Eternal Tapestry a little over a year ago in Portland and they were tremendous. I have a Plankton Wat record or two, an Edibles record and the Sun Araw collab, but need to catch up on ET itself.

They ended and Dewey (I think) leans into the mic and says, "Thanks, we're Eternal Tapestry. We don't have any records or T-shirts for sale."

alpine static, Monday, 19 November 2012 23:37 (1 year ago) Permalink

the golden void vocalist is kind of not charismatic.

j., Tuesday, 20 November 2012 04:54 (1 year ago) Permalink

Man, fuck either a USPS or Thrill Jockey at this point. Still haven't gotten my package from them. The dude who has been emailing me from their order department has been super responsive, which I appreciate, but they are basically just shrugging their shoulders. Just annoying because I paid extra for the "insured" media mail, but so far it seems like that isn't covering anything.

Mostly I'm just pissed that I now have to repurchase both the Eternal Tapestry and Golden Void records, but even more that I now have to miss out on the limited edition CD-R that was supposed to come up with my order.

I'm swearing off mail order records after this fiasco and, tbrr, completely considering giving up on record collecting at all. I mean, shops are shutting down right and left so mail order direct from the labels is probably soon to be the only option. And if that isn't even dependale, than why the fuck collect?

I heard the new Oneida record today and its really incredible. It reminded me of Alice Coltrane.

I had drunk lots of gin, though, so my opinion may not count. A++

...productively using sounds which previously would have been left to lie dormant on the cutting room floor. He began working with a palette comprised of in-the-red, bit-crushed digitalia, setting to work kneading these stubborn blocks of harsh sound into a sequence of five pieces which, despite their considerable barbs, retain the fluidity and pathos of the ambient tradition from which they were inspired...Indeed, Superstorms is at once organic and robotic, forceful and calm, coherent and unpredictable. In short, it is a meshing of oppositions- binaries smashed together and expertly sculpted into truly powerful sonic miasma.

passion it person (La Lechera), Monday, 10 December 2012 20:23 (1 year ago) Permalink

That Superstorms shit is cool, will need to explore more but thanks for that link. The tracks I listened to were really interesting (for ambient stuff).

Just stumbled across this Mick Flower Band record on the Three Lobed page, and it is great so far! I love Mick Flower, and here it is he and Jon Moloney just rocking (sounds like a power trio at times but it is just the two of them, with Flower looping some stuff).

http://threelobed.bandcamp.com/album/the-michael-flower-band

Seems like they are just jamming, but they are two dudes that are good at jamming. Keeping my time at work till the holidays feeling joyous and not a downer.

Wow, second track (I listened before but was distracted with some work shit) is great, if you like totally righteous Mick Flower guitar shredding. Guess the last three are live and have added folks (Bridget Hayden from Vibracathedral Orchestra and someone else).

The new United Bible Studies album ("I Am Providence") is amazing... just got it in the mail. Recorded on the 2008 tour that I saw, half of it live at Lovecraft's grave and half at a cloud in Providence RI. Mostly a vocal showcase, the club tracks are totally acapella. Gorgeous.

There had been a single put up back in April, but I got around to the rest of the works last night.

Super-minimal, but Ned had some nice things to say about it. I suspect he'll be looking for a check in the mail...
