some recent lissnin

Emmanuelle Parrenin Maison Rose
shimmering late 70s folk-prog lp from french previously trad folk player.
Very magical but every time it comes on i'm reminded of a song I'm only half
placing. Is it a Jim O'Rourke track Women Of The World or something like that?
I think this lp may be best known by those not familiar with it in total for the
track Topaze which has a proto-trip hop beat years before that trend. The rest
of the lp has very catching moments emerging from trancey folk based songs. Folk
as in Breton ala Alain Stivell meets Linda Perhacs?

Charles Mingus Pithecanthropus Erectus
lovely monumental late 50s jazz.
I think Mingus has been incorporated as an influence on a lot of mid 60s brit
r'n'b type stuff. Think Ah Um is more recognisable for that though.
There are a lot of classic lps in his ouevre anyway.

feedtime Aberrant years
This does have better sound than the 80s cd I had previously.
Cooper S the covers lp is grade a dunt. Very in your face bass-driven minimalist
Not heard it all the way through yet though.

Lumerians KEXP live 2008
nice spacy psychedelic improvisation. worth hearing. & the rest of that site is
worth checking through, some very interesting sets on there.

Sonic's Rendezvous Band think it was the '78 set from the Easy ACtion box
more great avant dunt based around Fred Smith's guitar and an r'n'b strut
reminiscent of early 70s Stones.
sound was surprisingly muddy, thought the label had shown how well it coul
dclear things like that up on its MC5 releases..

Matching Mole Little Red Record
Love this music and looking forward to hearing the clear version on the Esoteric
cd of it. Liquid jazz meets rock with great instrumental interplay possibly the
last example of Wyatt's drumming showcased before the accident?

Sister Rosetta Tharpe
a lot of her work's been turning up on Demonoid.
I haven't listened to her much before which is a great oversight .
Rousing gospel stuff which had a clear influence on rock.
Pretty infectious feeling throughout. If this wasn't overtly god-orientated it
would be very good getting down music.

Tim Hardin volume 3
The live lp from '68.
Hardin either reinvents his earlier material in a more jazzy-folky-rocky style
or badly slurs vocals as though he's nastily stoned. Sadly too much of the
latter. Otherwise this would be an utterly fantastic lp his band cooks
throughout at least on the tracks they're on. I think first couple of songs may
be him solo.

Chicago Soul
Souljazz compi of late 60s/early 70s gritty-funky soul.
Includes tracks from both Howlin Wolf and Muddy Waters' psychedelic cash in lps.
Listening to these tracks just has me wishing I could hear the band left to cook
in that style on an lp without the connection to a blues icon that seems to feel
uncomfortable in their presence. I don't think Rotary Connection who I think
most were connected with get so gritty do they?

loads of other stuff which will probably come back to me later.

Bits of country, jazz, VDGG, Gun Club, Soul, garage etc etc cropping up on my
walkman on random. still getting a load of nice surprises from

Optical Sounds all 4, discovering some very interesting material from there

Iggy Pop I Need More
Iggy's memoirs make pretty rivetting reading. Wonder if he'll update this or do
another version it did first appear about 30 years ago.

Greil Marcus book on the Doors.
been reading this on the bus in and out of the course. Enjoying it mainly but
should probably sit down with what i have of the tracks as s/trk to that.

re dr. john: i really like it. it's pretty spaced out, i'd say. actually i don't really know dr. john, everythng i had heard before - which was not much - to me was a tad boring, too traditional or something. the new one is crazy and psychedelic, i hear lots of captain beefheart in there.

Agitation free 2nd
long questing, drifting instrumentals for the most apart plus one with ghostly whispered vocals. Nice early 70s kosmische stuff with echoes of the San Francisco scene. Also some electronics that sounds like the descriptions I've read of Dik Mik etc.
Think I need to check out some more of their stuff. I know Malesch is pretty tasty cos i already have it.

Emmanuelle Parrenin Maison Rose
still Breton folk in Dub, like a cross between Malicorne and Linda Perhacs?
Lovely lp anyway.

Ornette Coleman This Is Our Music.
J Mascis & The Fog from last week or something long live set .
Daturana thopugh i don't think I'm likely to return to this singer isn't very nice listening on this. Band sounds like it started out as Doors worshippers and expanded influence somewhat but singer is way too cod Morrison and tone is just grating. Do wonder if it might be this specific live set but not holding my breath.

bob dylan - tempest (gaargh! his voice!)

Noisy, innit? Like it, actually - he seems one of the few from the 60s who really kept going.

Beginning to make it my way through the stuff in the Funkystepz thread. D/l my favourites from the ILX top 100 dance/electronic from the 00s poll.


A few works by Michael Finnissy - he is one of my favourite composers but I just feel I'm scraping the surface - such savegery on 'ouraa' from '83, even when it settles it doesn't let go fr a sec - more of a way of playing w/extremes of contrast that would come across as desperation from almost anyone else. Re-frames the meaning of intensity.

Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf - 'succolarity' for flute. Play this alongside Hubler's 'Palimpsest'. Mahnkopf comes across as a hack.

A few works by Mathias Spahlinger. If you like concrete intrumentale as per Lachenmann then its sometimes like it but he has a knack for not being as straghtforward when you're boxing him into a corner. One piece is for pots and pans...an American would be all playful but this is all incredible serious so he places a piano - no entended techniques as far as I can tell - in the middle. But not Beethoven in the middle of modernism.

'Gegen unendlich' has a section which veers on the middlebrow at times.

Easier to tell what it is not.

Lachenmann - Musik Mit Leonardo

Chaya Czernowin - Lovesong for emsemble, quite a lot drumroll type percussion. V good, tick.

Still skimming a lot of ILM EOY nominations. Checking out Phenomenal Handclap Band right now and into it so far.

In the evening (generally, anyway) I'm finally getting hands on about sorting through the Oum Kalthoum tracks on Spotify. I am working on building a playlist of every unique Oum Kalthoum recording on Spotify. Some appear in Spotify just once, some are on there several times, without much rhyme or reason (though there's some connection to how popular some of them are). I am not going to listen to every second of every track, but I'm trying to pick out the copies with the best sound quality. This could take months.
