ILX Gonna Shine in My Backdoor Someday (new post-Fahey folk for ppl posting in Takoma/Tompkins Square threads Pt II)

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

Lots of new releases lately but other thread getting big and unwieldy and a resource hog. So! New thread for weird Fahey-esque instrumental folk guitar.

What did we have so far this year? Highlights for me:

William Tyler- Lost Colony (the kraut-country thing gets me going)
Steve Gunn- Way Out Weather
Nathan Bowles- Nansemond
Chris Forsyth- Intensity Ghost (think overall I liked Solar Motel better but I'm glad this one seems to be taking off)
Tashi Dorji- S/T

Seems like a lot of these folks made it into the limelight this year! And new Six Organs looks to be a monster.

Can we keep the Youtube embedding to a minimum in this incarnation? You can prevent them from embedding by having "https:" as opposed to just "http:" in the URL

thank you! I'll post a link on the old one unless someone does it first

am I correct that the Tashi Dorji S/T is older stuff compiled? really liked the new EP on Bandcamp page.

re: Richard Dawson, was gonna say that I hear a lot of Bill Orcutt's influence/style in his playing, anybody else? (sorry if this was noted previously)

yeah, pulled from several years' worth of cassette iirc. kind of a "greatest hits," i guess. he really is great, seems to get better every time i play his stuff.

sleeve - yeah a ton of orcutt & not to be super cynical but he seems to be getting a lot of praise from ppl I don't get the sense really know Orcutt

But i do like him

I just think it's a little like how when I finally heard gang of four reissues after growing up a fugazi fan

you say tomato/i say imago (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Sunday, 14 December 2014 03:33 (two years ago) Permalink

Oh hey folks.

Sleeve, that Gunn record definitely is a very specific kind of cool to me, I get why it wouldn't appeal to you. It is mostly very low-key and its charms can be extremely subtle, but I have personally found it to be deep and varied enough that I return to it pretty frequently. Maybe it'll grow on you, but it is definitely a song-based record that doesn't try to push the musicality as far as a lot of records touched on in this thread (and many of Gunn's other records do).

grandavis, Monday, 15 December 2014 14:57 (two years ago) Permalink

yeah i was actually wondering recently what I would think of gunn's latest if it was the first record of his I had heard. the context of his gradual development into a more straight-ahead singer-songwriter adds some flavor I think (if that makes sense). love the latest but at the same time, i hope he hasn't left behind his more avant leanings -- those gunn-truscinski records are still my faves out of everything he's done.

rather how does one pronounce cian accurately

i thought it was like cyan but then realized it could be sean or shee-an or idk what and i would like to know

i thought it was just pronounced "sean" for years though.

The Gunn/Mike Cooper and Gunn/Gangloff records both came out this year I think, and both contain a good range of playing outside of his "Way Out Weather" mode. It will be interesting to see what side of the divide the upcoming Gunn/Black Twig Pickers record will ride, but my guess is I will dig it. Hope some of it revisits this territory though:

Global mentioned notable records from this year, and I wanna bring up Bachman's "Orange Co. Serenade". Really enjoyed it & definitely revisit it pretty frequently. Feel like he is growing and really may be just hitting his stride now, though who knows. New record on Three Lobed apparently out in April or May. Saw him Saturday night and the new songs were great, no reason not to believe that this next record will be anything other than really good.

grandavis, Monday, 15 December 2014 17:14 (two years ago) Permalink

dammit I forgot about that in my EOY listening binge this weekend, will check it out!

fwiw my introduction to Gunn was his side of the "Not The Spaces You Know..." comp, which I loved

some kind of terrible IDM with guitars (sleeve), Monday, 15 December 2014 17:16 (two years ago) Permalink

oh yeah, shouldn't have forgotten the Daniel Bachman one! I think I've come around on that one, seems like the most cohesive release he's done so far.

Also Charlie Parr doesn't usually fit in this thread but he did a release this year that definitely does. It's called Hollandale- some really nicely recorded exploratory fingerpicked instrumentals. All on a National resonator, which sounds awesome/immense at times. Some cool sounds and textures added... anyway, may have been overlooked in this thread... It's on Spotify

Whatever he's got there on the neck is partially under certain strings and on top of others. He accidentally bumps into it at one point and it seems very loose. I thought it was a capo at first. Such crazy sounds coming out of that guitar.

Watching the video as I'm commenting, probably not the best idea. Still don't know what that is, even with the close ups.

was watching some fahey live on youtube last night...here's an 81 gig, with apparently Michael Hedges opening (sorry folks no records available didn't get pressed in time)...Fahey is being really smarmy in his banter, the set itself verges from awkward to hypnotic, found his flopping down combover hair kind of distracting

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VP08Y3DsJvs

this is a 2000 set, he does a lot of dicking around/joking around at the beginning, but about the 7:40 mark on he gets going and it's actually pretty cool

Transmissions Fest footage is new to me, awesome. I wish more people openly talked about his later work without full on the talk of "well, I don't know about this, but look at what he used to do." The only thing that I can't fully grasp is the Hitomi material, some of it is played in that Transmissions Fest video. Kinda feel like it goes down easier when you get to watch him play like that, on record is another thing. There is another noodley electric gig on youtube that actually does have a lot of syncopation; and getting to hear old styles on an electric is pretty nice. There aren't many artists that went so far in the other direction, let alone an instance where you get to watch past material with a new technique. Defiantly would rather have had Fahey do all that then not. I dig The Mill Pond lots. It's not too different than some of the stuff that is out there today. Womblife gets so zonked in parts you can't help but grin.

http://broadcastsfrompoorfarm.tumblr.com/post/105401770173/fonotone-records-mail-order-catalog-pdf-booklet

I finally put together some new lapstyle material and wanted to share it here. "Blue For al-Watawit of Yashkur" sits as is, in a sorta demo state. I didn't want to forget all the new ideas I've been having, yet also told myself I wouldn't record again until I bought a nice microphone. Of course, I got impatient, so here we are. Before they find a home somewhere, I do want to properly record them.

Thanks dudes, I have always just been using a portable digital Tascam recorder from B&H Photo that I bought a while back. It fits in your pocket so I've used it while out and walking around, but it's not a good choice for recording guitar at this point, I loved it at first bc of how much of an improvement it was over using the internal MacBook mic. I sold my two amps (+all other musical electronics) years ago during collage, which I regret now. As I would like to record traditionally with a mic and amp set up. Either using the sound hole or install a pick up. How about USB mics? Been talked about here before I think. Decent clarity from the models available now?

Neal Cassady, Wednesday, 17 December 2014 21:34 (two years ago) Permalink

I think the solution is to just meet someone in town with a set up :) - that way I can avoid all of this.

you can hear the stuff i've done, which is minimally processed, a bit EQd and maybe compressed slighty with some audicity plugin reverb on it, but overall I'd say USB mics have come a long way

of course, I'm just plotting about how I want to get a USB DAC/Mic pre unit and a better XLR mic so I suppose one is always unsatisfied.

Dig Alexander because a) he is not afraid to play slow and stately (though he can pick when he decides to) and b) he hits some cool intervals and phrasing that seem kinda unique to him (though I mean it ain't reinventing the wheel or anything). Just a feel I can really really hang with. Also plays in the out guitar duo Nagual, but mainly he gets up to acoustic jams when he goes solo.

yeah this Alexander is lovely! so good

been listening to Eric Schoenberg's Steel Strings a lot lately and thinking about how the love of cultish dudes really causes guys like this from the more music biz Grossman axis (signed to Rounder, has his own signature guitar etc) to be underrated, people love the whole "recorded in one weekend in an abandoned church, this former member of the Universal Meaning commune pressed only 100 of this outsider gem" thing so much

this Schoenberg album is do great, though I think I have a higher tolerance for the pro/cornier side of this spectrum than most

Universal LULU Nation (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Sunday, 23 July 2017 14:13 (two months ago) Permalink

You are correct Ogmor. I can assure you that Alexander is both a good and trustworthy sort. Has the right attitude about things, and is a young dude who likely has a lot of good music ahead of him. Love that most recent release though.

Interesting fact: Alexander built the guitar he plays himself, and it is a really cool parlor-sized one that projects and rings out like a much larger-bodied guitar. Made me want one!

From Drag City News:

MACKAY & WALKER BACK IN THE RING

Bill MacKay and Ryley Walker's inspired collaboration continues with a 2nd volume of freshly baked tunes: they call it, SpiderBeetleBee! It's been nearly two years since their much-admired 2015 debut, Land of Plenty (Whistler Records), and SpiderBeetleBee more than makes up for the long wait with a rich, resonant batch of performances that elevate the guitar duo's sound into an ever-widening panorama of styles.

Their first album was developed over a month-long live residency at Chicago's Whistler, reflecting MacKay and Walker's joy in their newly found playing relationship. As kindred spirits, they found in their playing the ability to wordlessly finish a phrase or suggest a direction while speaking solely through their guitars. SpiderBeetleBee continues fluidly through and beyond a similar path of psych-folk-blues-raga, brewing further explorations in mixed-and-matched idioms, turning composed melodies inside-out via improvisation, and finding in the blend a shared Walker/MacKay pasture, serendipitously located somewhere between Appalachia and the Highlands.

SpiderBeetleBee radiates forth with equal parts austerity and whimsy, as evidenced in the lead single "I Heard Them Singing". Generating a nimble tempo with the aid of MacKay's requinto (a kind of 5-string Mexican guitar), Walker's rolling chords and the percolating tabla of Ryan Jewell, "I Heard Them Singing" suggests an unknown short-cut from Brazil to India!

LISTEN TO "I HEARD THEM SINGING" NOW! https://billmackayryleywalker.bandcamp.com/track/i-heard-them-singing

SpiderBeetleBee is out October 20th (preorder it, yo!), with a U.S. tour to follow! But before that, on a related and sufficiently important note, Bill MacKay tours the UK on the back of Esker for the first time later this month! And dig this, all dates are solo, supporting

Don't know Rob Noyes, but Alexander (David) is a super nice and interesting guy. Glad that show turned out well.

Three Lobed day party at Hopscotch just got announced. Looking pretty damn good. House and Land + Nathan Bowles Trio (no idea who is in the trio) + Tashi Dorji & Wooden Wand collab + Chuck Johnson pedal steel set + a new band with Mac McCaughan and Kurt Wagner, plus other stuff. A lot to dig into for sure.

WXDU is co-sponsoring, so it will probably all be streamed.

I know it doesn't technically fit but whatever so far the new Chris Forsyth & Solar Motel Band feels really inspired! the last one didn't stick w/me as much as the previous two.

He's such a great writer of melody.

yeah, it's a killer record for sure!

along similar lines, i got to "premiere" a track from the new Gunn-Truscinski record today: http://www.aquariumdrunkard.com/2017/09/01/gunn-truscinski-duo-flood-and-fire/

totally great jams on the whole record.

Btw the Rob Noyes album w/the Raymond Pettibon album is really becoming one of my favorites

he's got a manic energy that reminds me a bit of Jack Rose
