how is there no dedicated Three Lobed thread?

Paul Ponzi, Friday, 17 August 2018 00:57 (two months ago) Permalink

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.

did you guys all hear fabiano do nascimento's album from last year, tempo dos mestres? he's a brazilian guitarist based in california, his playing is tight, crisp, light & lyrical, it's full of gorgeous and quite varied duets, he's got a lovely voice (top mumbler) and is generally an irresistible cutie. it's easily the best guitar album I've heard from the last few years, it's everything I want from guitar music

no but thanks for the recommendation, will check that out

yeah it's lovely

(it's been mentioned a couple times in some threads IIRC)

Dinsdale, Sunday, 19 August 2018 19:51 (two months ago) Permalink

wow he sounds great — thanks for the tip!

tylerw, Sunday, 19 August 2018 21:03 (two months ago) Permalink

wow this is exceptional, thanks ogmor!

I love the old school 60s hard-pan stereo mix

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 20 August 2018 17:23 (two months ago) Permalink

This stops me listening to the orang-asli playing their nose flutes, and frankly that isn't good enough*!

Jokes, obviously, I'm sure I picked up his first record on this thread, and loved it. Didn't know about the second.

*Apologies for any dickish comments during Lattimore-gate.

let's all hold hands and bask in fab's light. the first album is really good but tempo dos mestres is a glistening masterpiece. all these bad boys trying to cook up the gnarliest open-tuned whirlwind to supercharge everything with righteous fury and here's fabiano with the gentlest breeze to make your heart cave in. there's so much joy in it, such clarity to his playing (a v rare quality nowadays) and it's foregrounded so beautifully by the more diffuse/unfocused elements (is this what he means when he talks about the rainforest? I have never been & have no clue), especially the percussion

would be curious how you feel about the new daniel bachman, as he's sort of abandoned his young hotshot status for more ethereal stuff

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 21 August 2018 17:43 (two months ago) Permalink

he also put these other versions/reworkings on bandcamp - https://fabianodonascimento.bandcamp.com/album/tempos-selection

hard to pick any tracks out on such a consistent record but his version of canto de xango is... the best version? it's sublime, anyway. really adore o tempo too, just the sweetest tune

haven't been able to bring myself to listen to the bachman yet despite yr and global's enthusiasm. i will dutifully report back if and when

ogmor, Tuesday, 21 August 2018 17:46 (two months ago) Permalink

haha american primitive: the toughest job you'll ever love

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 21 August 2018 18:02 (two months ago) Permalink

just recall i said i enjoyed it, not that i think it's the second coming of Days Have Gone By or anything

global tetrahedron, Wednesday, 22 August 2018 02:24 (two months ago) Permalink

New Glenn Jones here. Haven't seen any discussion on this yet.

outside, you're never alone. (Austin), Monday, 27 August 2018 15:59 (one month ago) Permalink

yeah just digging into it this morning on the way into work

glenn's about as consistent an artist as you'll find in the world today, he's so at ease with his own playing

the last passenger pigeon is a standout

only thing that's kind weird for him is i hear some rattling on his guitar that's def. not there on my garden state, almost sounds like a setup issue on the guitar?

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 27 August 2018 16:02 (one month ago) Permalink

xp below the fold, but this is all the discussion I see here so far:

new glenn jones! https://thrilljockey.com/products/the-giant-who-ate-himself-and-other-new-works-for-6-12-string-guitar

very good stuff

I like River in the Sky where you can hear crickets and a plane flying by overhead

Bachman has a lot of environmental stuff on his album too, definitely adds to the sense of space

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 27 August 2018 16:25 (one month ago) Permalink

Bachman's new one is terrific, puts a lot of other stuff in this vein to shame imo

Paul Ponzi, Monday, 27 August 2018 17:25 (one month ago) Permalink

WXDU /Three Lobed day party at Hopscotch is upon us (i.e. today). Tons of good stuff lined up, beginning with Bachman at 12 pm. Will post a link to the livestream when I find it (unless they aren't doing it this year, but my guess is they are).

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 14:12 (one month ago) Permalink

Alright, line-up and links here: http://www.kingsraleigh.com/shows/three-lobed-wxdu-2018-annual-ritual-of-summoning-a-day-show/

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 14:15 (one month ago) Permalink

that's amazing it's free! would be fun to go to

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 7 September 2018 14:16 (one month ago) Permalink

If you are remote the entire day’s performances will be simulcast on WXDU using a special live feed from NYCTaper‘s Jonas Blank.

cool, maybe these sets will show up on the NYCTaper site?

sleeve, Friday, 7 September 2018 14:28 (one month ago) Permalink

usually some of 'em (though not all of 'em) show up on NYC Taper

tylerw, Friday, 7 September 2018 14:53 (one month ago) Permalink

My guess is some performers are cool with it and some maybe aren't, but its a bummer they don't all end up there. Regardless, I hope to catch most of this live if I can.

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 15:01 (one month ago) Permalink

I have made it to a couple of these, it is a good time. Pretty low key and of course the line-up is usually stacked. And added bonus of it being free, which is crazy.

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 15:02 (one month ago) Permalink

As UMS noted! (being free that is)

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 16:09 (one month ago) Permalink

Seems like Bachman has a crew there! Not sure who is playing with him, but lots of bells/noisemakers starting this thing off.

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 16:09 (one month ago) Permalink

About 10 minutes in and no guitars hah hah. Going full Pelt.

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 16:15 (one month ago) Permalink

yeah this is so great...dronetastic

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 7 September 2018 16:38 (one month ago) Permalink

Two members of the current Mind Over Mirrors crew apparently (Jamie Fennely himself and Jim Becker of Califone/MoM live ensemble). Also Forrest Marquise, who plays the octotone and other instruments on the last couple of records. Indeed, droney as hell. For those who didn't tune in, it was a single long piece with constant drones going and a lengthy Daniel guitar passage in the middle. Good afternoon listening for sure.

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 16:47 (one month ago) Permalink

Pretty sure it was "Invocation" from the new album stretched out to twice as long

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 17:15 (one month ago) Permalink

mary lattimore + mac maccaughn doing some kinda alice coltrane meditation currently

tylerw, Friday, 7 September 2018 17:30 (one month ago) Permalink

this is super awesome

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 7 September 2018 17:33 (one month ago) Permalink

love that between sets they switch to roots reggae :)

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 7 September 2018 17:35 (one month ago) Permalink

it's actually kinda helpful -- i've tuned in during past years' shows and thought i was listening to a live performance only to realize it was like Dopesmoker or something.

tylerw, Friday, 7 September 2018 17:38 (one month ago) Permalink

haha yeah this keeps a nice stoner mellow vibe but it's distinct

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 7 September 2018 17:39 (one month ago) Permalink

haha yeah

btw, the nyc taper archives for this annual event go deep: http://www.nyctaper.com/tag/wxdu/

tylerw, Friday, 7 September 2018 17:42 (one month ago) Permalink

i think this is a dub instrumental version of "black starliner" by culture?

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 7 September 2018 18:28 (one month ago) Permalink

Hah the Sleep excerpts keep popping up as well. I prefer the dub/roots, but I mean it all works in its own way.

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 18:31 (one month ago) Permalink

meg baird is so good

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 7 September 2018 19:14 (one month ago) Permalink

Yeah that was a great set.

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 19:35 (one month ago) Permalink

Is Matt Valentine actually stoned all the time, or has he just perfected sounding that way?

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 19:46 (one month ago) Permalink

hahaha I believe the former

sleeve, Friday, 7 September 2018 19:47 (one month ago) Permalink

I mean it isn't a judgment, just an observation

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 20:09 (one month ago) Permalink

had a lame meeting for the past 2 hours ... had to miss baird and wet tuna booooooo

tylerw, Friday, 7 September 2018 20:37 (one month ago) Permalink

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 7 September 2018 20:42 (one month ago) Permalink
