for all american popol vuh seekers, i strongly recommend chris forsyth's paranoid cat. the first and last songs in particular (paranoid cat 1-3 and anniversary day) for pure LT-LN outtakes. amazing! beautiful.

That kid is otm! Wish I had bought the lp at the show but the merch table was unmanned and I was embarrassed to ask anyone. Stupid!!

we slowly invented brains (La Lechera), Sunday, 9 March 2014 17:45 (five years ago) link

what's stupid is I saw that LP at the record store for $7(!) and didn't buy it then went back bc I was stupid and it was gone. then I went back weeks later and I found it stashed somewhere else in the store entirely. like in the techno section iirc? Odd. I bought it.

it's so good though right?! paranoid cat 1-3 sounds so much like LT-LN/Heart of Glass era PV to me.

it's pretty incredible! I saw the forsyth self-titled recently but didnt get it. Probably should do that. Still have to get solar motel.

Wow, I'll have to look for that. I like Solar Motel a lot, but that's on some motorik Neu!/Rhys Chatham tip.

is robbie basho the american popol vuh???

ian, Thursday, 13 March 2014 19:06 (five years ago) link

I'd say at the heart of both artist's endeavors that's pretty close. He has the intent and seriousness of Florian Fricke's mysticism. A friend who I tried playing both Basho and Popol Vuh for responded in a similar way to each, something about those guys are serious hippies.

did robbie basho have a daniel fichelscher?

Does anyone here like Atman? The Polish band that were on Drunken Fish that became the Magic Carpathians? Just listened to 'Personal Forest' again for the first in years and it sounded a lot better to me than I remembered. Think that listening to PV and other stuff in the interim has given me a much better understanding of where they were coming from.

No I guess he had no daniel fichelscher, the popol vuh record that brings to mind Basho the most is Yoga which isn't exactly a popol vuh record. But when I first heard it years ago it was sort of a revelation to me. Now that I know the story behind it, I still like it a lot. You would think there are more home recordings laying around somewhere?

Gigi really needs his own thread, he keeps popping up all over the place on ilm

Does he? Dang, I thought I was bringing some deep cuts here. I'd be down for a thread though.

I was pretty slow on this album but the Mark McGuire record ‘Beyond Belief’ from a couple of years back has got some beautiful and very Vuh-ish tracks on it

Have been working my way through his albums and they’re a lot more varied than I would’ve anticipated and that one is definitely my favourite so far

faust apes (NickB), Saturday, 13 January 2018 21:15 (one year ago) link

has he stopped singing? the last time i listened to his music, he was singing and it was not my cup of tea. i like his guitar stuff though -- he definitely has an ear for the sublime.

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Saturday, 13 January 2018 21:45 (one year ago) link

there is some singing on it yes. not loads - most of its instrumental, but I think I quite like his voice anyhow
