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 (three 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 (three 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

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:

grandavis, Monday, 15 December 2014 17:06 (three years ago) Permalink

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 (three 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 (three 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.

I thought it was a hairclip, it loops round the top string.

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

grandavis, Tuesday, 16 December 2014 17:26 (three years ago) Permalink

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.

Couple things I put together,

John Fahey's Adelphi Sessions, the Dance of Death outtakes. Uploaded as MP3's, posted on my blog:
http://broadcastsfrompoorfarm.tumblr.com/post/105403178308/john-fahey-adelphi-sessions-the-dance-of-death

Scanned my copy of the mail order catalog from Fonotone Records, interesting curio. Includes the numerous early Fahey comps Joe Bussard curated for Fonotone.
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 (three 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.

Neal Cassady, Wednesday, 17 December 2014 21:36 (three years ago) Permalink

I've posted things upthread recorded with the Blue Yeti (120 new but you can def find a ton of these used on ebay, got mine for 80 on craigslist)

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.

For sure. I also remember "REWRITING HISTORY" or something. He probably thought he was doing the audience a big favor filtering all of the comments by the panel, you know so we wouldn't be mislead by BULLSHIT or whatnot.

Is there footage of this? Surely someone recorded it. I'd be fine with watching it post-Rosenthal ousting, even. It seems like after that fest, everyone I knew who is into this stuff was talking more about the panel than anyone who actually played the festival

Maybe a weird thing to say, but it is pretty fitting that a festival set up to honor Fahey's legacy (amongst other things) involved some bonkers drama and contentiousness. I mean, the man had many layers, and that was certainly one.

Still sorry I couldn't be up there for the whole thing.

grandavis, Monday, 22 October 2018 13:50 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Paul, there are audio recordings (and video of certain performances) of the whole fest that are available—if I send you a link via the ILX email message system is it going to hit the right inbox? Let me know if you have another way I should reach out? Not sure if someone has already sent this link over to you but there is an MP3 of the panel housed inside the folders.

Davis, I for real tried to find you at the closing performances @ the Rhizome, like going up to a couple people and asked “Sorry, is your name Davis?”… lol, I headed out around 12AM or 1AM because I had a flight out at 5AM. We will meet one day though, for sure!

Aww man, sorry to hear that! I was definitely at Rhizome too! Got to meet UMS and Global but mostly was inside checking the performances.

global tetrahedron, Thursday, 25 October 2018 16:16 (three weeks ago) Permalink

"The Ark" in Woodstock has burned to the ground .

Early Monday morning a fire consumed the Ark along with the two neighboring buildings. Leaving six families and residence homeless. Peter barely made it out with his life, escaping barefoot in his under shorts holding two burning guitars. He has lost everything

The Ark was built in the late 1960's by Paul Farmer and Patty Goodyear (the tire heiress). In 1988 when Patty passed from leukemia they turned the building over to he Peter to use as a cultural Ark.

For the last 30 years Peter has filled the Ark with Woodstock memorabilia, original recordings of the musicians that made Woodstock the great place that it is. The collection included paintings by Woodstock artist Robert Reynolds, Bob Dacey and John Ernst, as well as a small comprehensive law library. There was also a collection of priceless acoustical instruments, music real to real tapes, cassettes, videos and digital art in various formats. The upper part of the building was used an audio and video recording studio for local artists.

All of this is lost, please help us rebuild. Any and all help is appreciated.

yeah I never connected those two

did you ever watch that Frisell documentary? What a nice guy

agreed though that Tyler is great but Frisell is really operating on another level

yeah that frisell doc was nice — good to see one of those docs that doesn't leave you depressed! i feel like most musician docs end up bumming me out.

Lotta good stuff rolling out in this territory soon. Look forward to that Sarah Louise, plus the Nathan Bowles trio album. Need to check the Meg Baird+Mary Lattimore too, Meg is a pretty great guitar player and the one track I have heard so far was really cool.

Liking that Sarah Louise a lot, definitely a better fit for her vocals for me than the solo guitar tunes. Really cool.

Can listen to the Baird & Lattimore on the Three Lobed BC site:

Really hitting the spot from the jump.

This is kind of wild, but since I haven't done this kind of thing in a while it is a good reason to do so. I got to sit in with Elkhorn on their tune Lionfish at their recent show I set up in Charlottesville, which was a lot of fun. They have invited a bunch of different folks to do so with them (and some great ones, Willie Lane, Matt Valentine and Pat Gubler, etc.), so very nice of them to throw me into that mix.

Me doing my usual stuff, but it fits in pretty well I think.

Thanks for diving in UMS and tylerw, I appreciate it. A sturdy set of chords/riffs to play over, though always interesting to roll with it on the fly. That whole set of tracks is pretty cool, kind of becomes a long drone piece with guests drifting in and out if you listen to the whole thing.
