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

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.

vigetable (La Lechera), Monday, 15 December 2014 15:20 (three years ago) Permalink

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

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

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:

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)
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.

Neal there is also a USB model of the Blue Spark which is supposed to be great on acoustics

you say tomato/i say imago (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 18 December 2014 00:48 (three years ago) Permalink

Nice yeah, I remember reading a while back about you UMS using the Blue Yeti for your material. If you search a phrase like 'USB mic acoustic guitar' on youtube the Blue Yeti seems to comes up the most, also something called the Snowball. Though, I think based on the sound samples the Yeti comes out on top. I'll look into that Blue Spark too.

No other time than now to get a project down. Should defiantly put together something. Stick it on a tape and send it to people, flinging around links is nerve racking sometimes though.

I used to work at the main public library of Virginia and was hired at the perfect moment where they were getting rid of all the old analog stereo equipment and vinyl records. It was a dream to hoard of that kind of stuff. I got a working reel to reel, but haven't yet grabbed any tape to use it. Would love to have it up and running.

it's so sparse and slow compared to earlier stuff like Seven Pines

sleeve, Saturday, 28 July 2018 01:38 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I think the collaborators on this, both actual (folks playing fiddle/bowls/shruti box etc.) and environmental (insects/cars/trains/radio orators), allow that space in a lot of ways. It is way easier to sit back and let you playing breathe when you aren't solely responsible for generating all of the sound. Also of course he has shifted and changed things up over time (and is older) so I am sure some of this is just the passage of time settling into the playing. But yeah, I love the slow ones, and am lucky to have seen some of this stuff develop live over the last couple of years. There are a lot of folks who have delved into this territory over the years but I think Bachman is making it his own too. Hope he continues down this road for a while.

grandavis, Saturday, 28 July 2018 14:28 (three weeks ago) Permalink

really loving the Bachman, the sound is almost like field recordings, love as you said the outdoor feel and space

this is probably the opposite of what he should do if he wants to be successful but i love it artistically

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 31 July 2018 20:21 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I think he has given up on being "successful" for the time being, i.e., having music be the only thing he is doing and appealing to as wide an audience as possible. Note that he is getting tons of positive reviews, pretty much every magazine/site that still covers this kind of thing has weighed in. I would guess he sells more, or about as many, copies of this record as any others of his, but still point taken. Opening the album with a 19 minute track is certainly not a populist move hah hah.

grandavis, Tuesday, 31 July 2018 20:34 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Oddly enough I have been recording a ton of tracks outside in Virginia with the bugs and environmental sounds kicking in. Pretty much all moot now that Daniel has laid this out there for the world to hear (same bugs even, as we live pretty close to each other in Virginia!)

oh yeah i think you're probably right, i just feel like some of these dudes could decide to "pull a kottke" so to speak and go for the guitar magazine/guitar enthusiast crowd, he certainly has the ability to do so, that can be a very lucrative little niche

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 31 July 2018 20:37 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Yeah he probably could, but he is certainly not wired that way. I mean, I live in a town lousy with Kottke (and like Pierre Bensusan)-worshipping folk/bluegrass/old-time acoustic shred enthusiasts, and none of those folks show up to any of the Bachman shows here. Well, there was one show maybe 3-4 years ago with Nathan Bowles where it seemed some acoustic shred heads were there, and I know this because one of them asked for their money back during my opening set (I did a lengthy feedback passage on electric that I do not think set the mood they were looking for). But yeah, it is funny what a fine line it is to that popularity and sustaining crowd vs. where folks like Daniel and Jack Rose get slotted. Like, would J. Rose have ended up beloved by a wider audience at some point, or would he have stayed in the territory he sits in now? (cult following of loyal heads coming at this shit from avant/improv/indie rock land)

grandavis, Tuesday, 31 July 2018 20:46 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I guess this expansive guitar playing was never really that popular, it is the streamlined version that draws in the guitar-player and ex-jam-band-enthusiast-aging-into-acoustic-shred-fans, but still, it seems so adjacent as to be something they would dig, ESPECIALLY if they tolerated long instrumental jams from like Phish or the Grateful Dead back in the day, but so far it does not seem to bubble up into that sphere as far as I can tell.

I think this has a lot to do with people kinda aging out in some ways, and losing interest in looking for new things to listen to. As long as the 'olds' of the golden age are still performing, your average retiree Kottke fan will always rather drop $75 to watch Leo play "Vaseline Machine Gun" than go see someone on Scissor Tail or whatever

Paul Ponzi, Tuesday, 31 July 2018 22:22 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Hey Sleeve, it wasn't so bad! He didn't say anything to me on his way out (or during the set), he just went up to the door person and asked for his money back and suggested that he didn't sign on for ear damage when he came to the show (it should be noted that this was not ear splitting feedback, but more of the "pastoral" low level type, which is quite beautiful in my opinion). Still, both Daniel and Nathan were completely supportive and laughed about it, and even better was that an even older dude (in his 60s at the least) than the guy who asked for his money back compared me to Cluster and Neu! and wanted to talk German rock after my set, so you know the universe gives and it takes away ....

grandavis, Wednesday, 1 August 2018 15:28 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Paul, sure, aging out/losing interest happens, but in general there is a certain type of very avid and active music fan in my neck of the woods between the ages of lets say 30-55 that do look for new bands and attend a lot of shows, but they don't find this stuff that in my mind is very adjacent and relatable to other stuff they dig. Aquarium Drunkard is a good example of a place kind of bridging some gaps that I would think are easy to bridge, and I see fans of the type I am imagining online (the Phish loving Bachman fan, essentially), but it does not bear out in the kind of numbers I would think are out there to be had.

the sound quality on the community center recording in the 1000rose dp link is really high quality :)

I'm working through the community centre recordings now; might come back to the talk and spoken word but focusing on the music. I'm a little envious of those of you who got to see all of this. Some beautiful stuff here. The Peter Walker set was way up my alley. The Glenn Jones/Susan Alcorn duo also really good. A little surprised (in a v good way) by how far out the Sarah Louise and Luke (Stewart?) and Susan (Alcorn?) set got.

yeah it really had little to do w/am primitive at all, dug that set a lot (s louise et al)

yeah, the new stuff / two-drummer lineup sounds radical!

this is maybe a little off for the thread, but: https://okazakiwork.bandcamp.com/album/work-complete-volumes-1-6

complete works of Monk for solo guitar ... sounds pretty cool.

yes! thanks!

Peter seems to be back posting avuncular anti-Trump posts on Facebook, a good sign

If anyone is looking to grab the new Bachman or any other Three Lobed releases, today is an OK day to do so. Celebrating 18 years today! Quite a feat:

"18 years, that's how old TLR is as of today. hard to believe - seems like stuffing those first bardo 10"s wasn't that long ago. sheesh! thanks to everyone out there! the code "ufos_are_real" will get you 15% off whatever at http://threelobed.bandcamp.com through the end of the day..."

A lot of good options in that catalogue. Probably still copies of those 3 Jack Rose reissues, along with many other good options of course.

how is there no dedicated Three Lobed thread?

Good question. I mean, they come up HERE a lot, but Three Lobed is broader than this thread tends to get. Such a good label.
