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

global tetrahedron, Saturday, 13 December 2014 20:34 (six years ago) link

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)

doing some EOY catchup and I am not feeling this Steve Gunn at all, threadban me if you must

liked the Solar Motel (2 tracks on Spotify), really liked the new Tashi Dorji EP.

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.

tylerw, Saturday, 13 December 2014 21:37 (six years ago) link

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

you say tomato/i say imago (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Sunday, 14 December 2014 03:32 (six years ago) link

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 (six years ago) link

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 (six years ago) link

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.

tylerw, Monday, 15 December 2014 15:16 (six years ago) link

hey i have a question -- how do you pronounce cian of the name cian nugent?

vigetable (La Lechera), Monday, 15 December 2014 15:20 (six years ago) link

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

vigetable (La Lechera), Monday, 15 December 2014 15:21 (six years ago) link

Kee An

tylerw, Monday, 15 December 2014 15:26 (six years ago) link

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

tylerw, Monday, 15 December 2014 15:27 (six years ago) link

Like Ian preceded with a /k/ ?
Good to know! I have been meaning to ask this question for months.

vigetable (La Lechera), Monday, 15 December 2014 15:31 (six years ago) link

yes, exactly!

tylerw, Monday, 15 December 2014 15:34 (six years ago) link

haha apparently lots of blog posters and show hosters feel the need to lay this to rest too:

Neal Cassady, Monday, 15 December 2014 15:39 (six years ago) link

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 (six years ago) link

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 (six years ago) link

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 (six years ago) link

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

awesome

global tetrahedron, Monday, 15 December 2014 22:33 (six years ago) link

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.

Neal Cassady, Monday, 15 December 2014 22:50 (six years ago) link

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

Neal Cassady, Monday, 15 December 2014 22:52 (six years ago) link

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

ogmor, Tuesday, 16 December 2014 15:19 (six years ago) link

Think Ogmor is right, looks like a large barrette, the cheap kind you can get at CVS etc.

that amy in quebec track is so close to wine&roses/red pony/approaching of the disco void its almost a cover

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

you say tomato/i say imago (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 16 December 2014 17:11 (six years ago) link

grandavis, Tuesday, 16 December 2014 17:22 (six years ago) link

oops sorry

you say tomato/i say imago (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 16 December 2014 17:23 (six years ago) link

A leaner/meaner thread for 2015 I guess. I'll miss the Fahey gut though.

grandavis, Tuesday, 16 December 2014 17:26 (six years ago) link

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.

Cool, thanks Neal! Actually already listened to your "Blue For al-Watawit of Yashkur" tracks (Mr. Avant Ghetto threw them up on twitter yesterday), really enjoyed them. First track sucked me right in, so yeah make a recording you are happy with and I am on board!

grandavis, Wednesday, 17 December 2014 17:57 (six years ago) link

neal - or others - what microphones/mic pres do you guys use? this coming year i need to get serious about recording an album

you say tomato/i say imago (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 17 December 2014 19:11 (six years ago) link

like your new stuff neal

the only Tashi Dorji song on Spotify is a cool little curio, electronic remix featuring his guitar of a song by some psychey dude name Al Lover

http://open.spotify.com/track/2HxzI5VuTvgdbTGolZ7x7G

you say tomato/i say imago (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 17 December 2014 21:00 (six years ago) link

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 (six years ago) link

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 (six years ago) link

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)
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=857749&gclid=Cj0KEQiA8MSkBRCP5LaRlcOAusMBEiQAiqldkgFeoLzZuCr_Hg1GQ03TBk1qSggFdqEqo5fQpNn1jLgaAgF98P8HAQ&is=REG&Q=&A=details

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.

you say tomato/i say imago (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 17 December 2014 21:38 (six years ago) link

gonna check out yr new thing neal! i've dug the rag lore things i've heard so far.
just got hipped to this thing via soft abuse's twitter -- maybe it was mentioned on the old thread? https://moonbros.bandcamp.com/album/frijolillo - kind of low-key/dreamy/fieldrecording-y/acoustic action. i like it!

global - I've thought that several times that I think that specific day changed the trajectory of her career

when I and (our bandmate MB) went to see Itasca we were buying her record and I mentioned we had seen her there she was like "yeah that whole thing was weird"

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 30 April 2021 13:36 (five months ago) link

Do you look back on it negatively? I think besides the silly Q&A drama nothing else seemed too off to me honestly.

BTW by then Sarah was already on her way departing from the tropes of that genre, exhibited by her performance at that festival (was overtly not "American Primitive" in any identifiable way).

Evan, Friday, 30 April 2021 14:32 (five months ago) link

no I had one of the best times of my life, the whole thing was great. and the general vibes were very positive. just some of those really old codgers seemed to have some axes from like 1966 to grind

but again i wasn't a woman on that particular panel, i feel like that could really sour someone on the whole thing

oh for sure, you're right, her thing was way more..free jazz? frankly, i appreciated the gesture more than the actual performance (didn't really seem to go anywhere for me, jazz is hard it turns out)

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 30 April 2021 14:44 (five months ago) link

for the past several years, i've gone to the Pickathon festival near Portland (Oregon), and one of my favorite little games to play is noting which of the artists on the bill i see at the most *other artists'* sets. (poorly worded, but you know what i mean.) a few years ago, Sarah Louise won by a landslide; i remember watching her get *deeply* into Kikagaku Moyo, Circuit des Yeux and Milo (aka RAP Ferreira), to name a few

cameron knowler is a really pretty album, reminds me a big of ambsace by elkington/salsburg

got my vinyl of the new marissa anderson/william tyler in the mail, really great they compliment each other so well. some songs are exactly what you'd expect but there are some curveballs that don't really sound like anything either has done individually.

Agreed! WFMU's Garbage Time (on Tuesdays) has been playing that a lot among other new things all in this wheelhouse & more. Have you ever listened to it? Great show.

Mine is still in the mail, I hope. So looking forward to it showing up any minute.

Evan, Thursday, 19 August 2021 17:27 (two months ago) link

Communist Hockey Goblin (sleeve), Friday, 8 October 2021 02:36 (one week ago) link

The first listen to the new one really caught me off guard, because Not So Deep as a Well was a record that grabbed me immediately, and I think the length and breadth of this one was a bit overwhelming at first, but there's enough interesting stuff going on that it keeps compelling me to go back to it.

cwkiii, Friday, 8 October 2021 03:02 (one week ago) link

What is the best way to get updates on Feeding Tube releases? "Follow" on Bandcamp? Myriam's new one was put out on tape by FT and subsequently went OOP at some point but I never got wind about this release until Marc Masters posted his review on Pitchfork. Would've been nice to grab a physical copy.

Update: nvm, it's only sold out on Myriam's bandcamp, looks like it's still avail direct (link below). Would still be nice to sign up for some kind of newsletter, can't find one atm.

i want to know the 'story' with feeding tube, i know byron runs it, but i feel like there has to be some rich guy's passion money behind it. vinyl is already prohibitive to produce, let alone at the scale they do

it is pretty wild — basically an LP a week! I think the co-founder Ted Lee has sort of deep pockets from something, but I don't really know the details.

The first listen to the new one really caught me off guard, because Not So Deep as a Well was a record that grabbed me immediately, and I think the length and breadth of this one was a bit overwhelming at first, but there's enough interesting stuff going on that it keeps compelling me to go back to it.

It def took a few spins for the new one to sink in but I played it the other night and it really clicked.

Feeding Tube deserves a Nobel Prize for doing the Spielgusher 2xlp

and similarly, the new Rolin / Powers / Gerycz is excellent: https://geryczpowersrolin.bandcamp.com/album/lamplighter

Isn't it gorgeous?! I'm a sucker for that open, ringing Tele sound.

Speaking of gorgeous, the Gendron album is a stunner.
