Stew & the Negro Problem—Notes of a Native Song

curmudgeon, Sunday, 6 January 2019 02:20 (two months ago) Permalink

which I hadn't been aware of but turned up in Sister Ray. Overview of the label over a couple of decades. From early Savage republic to solo Bruce Licher. & several of the bands he released including Camper Van beethoven who are represented by Take tHe Skinheads Bowling which might be too obvious a choice. Nice lp anyway.

been meaning to pick this up for years and it was in Sister ray at the same time.

I knew the name for years, not sure if i had really heard them before the reissue

slowly picking up physical copies of all the 60s Trane.

should have picked this up in Rough Trade cos it was a bit cheaper. Have listened to it since i got home and bought it online now.

2nd lp by the early 70s yodeller/experimental singer

74 rock lp by band I remember from their Bubblegum hits

experimental lp by singer i've been meaning to check out for a while.
Interesting, may prompt me to check out more of her stuff.

comprehensive compilation of 60s mod band I've loved since the Edsel compilation came out in my early teens. Xmas present from my brother.

Becky G - Shower. Blame my 12 yo.

Live material from Simply Saucer in 1975 that makes up the 2nd disc of In The Red's Cyborgs revisited double lp.
Hadn't realised there was a different drummer by that point.

love this stuff so probably need to get the individual 70s lps. Great soullish stuff from a singer who started on the folk scene and blended in jazz elements, like having 2 bassists playing at the same time on the 1st lp.

THis is really nice too. So glad i got it, probably would have bought the Fantomas set if they had it on cd. NOt sure what the story is on their cd version now, if it is sold out permanently or if it is just while they're touring. They were playing the soundtrack to the film live to the film at the local University a couple of weeks ago

really enjoying this 2015? release, Degiheugi - "Endless Smile"

I guess it's trip-hop? downtempo hip-hop? so good for getting zero exposure.

I should listen to this more, I think main reason I had it out was to copy it for my girlfriend.

Been meaning to pick up the necessary Sweet and Slade lps for a while. So far got one of each this and Slayed.

Now that's a band I haven't heard/seen mention in a long time. I remember liking Berchem quite a lot back in the day - how's the new one?

first (2014) and second (2017) album releases by Clap! Clap!

from allmusic:

"Coming from a background in jazz, where he sometimes worked under the alias Digi G'Alessio,
Italian musician Cristiano Crisci made a transition into electronic music with the Clap! Clap! project
around the beginning of the 2010s. Crisci's work as Clap! Clap! wove the influence of Chicago's footwork scene
into a tapestry of West African percussion samples as well as frequent use of Crisci's own field recordings."

"Sophomore album...finds the producer folding live instrumentation into the earthy samples"

terry riley - shri camel

brimstead, Wednesday, 20 March 2019 01:16 (six days ago) Permalink

disc 1, has some of the better known tracks on that I know from having had the 2 lps years ago.
Blooming love Playing Golf.

I noticed this is The return Of , think I picked it up cheap in either Rough Trade or FOPP over Xmas.
Not sure exactly what the difference between the 2 versions is.
& I think I might finally get around to picking up copies of the lps from a couple of years later.

THis is the edition of the cd I have and I bought it a while after first hearing about it. Can't remember details unfortunately, but I got it in the early 90s. & i think I may have heard about it from Forcedexposure.
I love the mournful feel to the tunes and the references to earlier music forms. Seems to be steeped in gopspel/old timey influence but played with an electric feel.

Last night I also listened to the Oneohtrix Point Never comp Fall Into Time, which is possibly becoming my favorite of his... wonderful warm juno vistas...

I love Fall Into Time. They reissued the releases that make up the Rifts comp a couple years ago, and they’re all so good. Having them each as a separate slab of vinyl makes them much more approachable and memorable than listening to the en masse on Rifts
