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?

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

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

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).

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

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 (three months 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 (three months ago) Permalink

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

tylerw, Friday, 7 September 2018 14:53 (three months 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 (three months 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 (three months ago) Permalink

As UMS noted! (being free that is)

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 16:09 (three months 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 (three months ago) Permalink

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

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 16:15 (three months ago) Permalink

yeah this is so great...dronetastic

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

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

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 17:15 (three months ago) Permalink

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

tylerw, Friday, 7 September 2018 17:30 (three months ago) Permalink

this is super awesome

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

meg baird is so good

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

Yeah that was a great set.

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 19:35 (three months 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 (three months ago) Permalink

hahaha I believe the former

sleeve, Friday, 7 September 2018 19:47 (three months ago) Permalink

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

grandavis, Friday, 7 September 2018 20:09 (three months 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 (three months ago) Permalink

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

rip van wanko, Friday, 21 September 2018 19:53 (two months ago) Permalink

oh yeah that's some good shit, I got to see him on that 2008 Terrastock tour

sleeve, Friday, 21 September 2018 20:00 (two months ago) Permalink

three weeks pass...

ok so it's definitely not exclusively guitar music, but this is where tashi dorji fans might gather right?

last night i went to the record release show for Kuzu and wowee zowee did they rip. recommended if you like powerhouse supergroups like rangda but think maybe they have gotten a bit dull

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Wednesday, 17 October 2018 21:40 (one month ago) Permalink

i think he's just playing solo? but I'm not sure. it's free! everyone should come out to boulder for it, I've got a guest room.

tylerw, Wednesday, 17 October 2018 22:07 (one month ago) Permalink

psyched to see this:

tylerw, Wednesday, 17 October 2018 22:33 (one month ago) Permalink

is that being released somewhere?

Paul Ponzi, Wednesday, 17 October 2018 22:48 (one month ago) Permalink

i'm not sure! a friend of mine saw some of this footage at a festival a little while ago, so it all exists in some kind of presentable form ...

tylerw, Wednesday, 17 October 2018 22:55 (one month ago) Permalink

From what I could follow it seems like there was an Indiegogo for putting together a documentary about it/about the group of people that put it on/plus selected footage from the fest. It seems somehow related to Fat Possum but I’m not 100% sure?
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-blues-society-a-documentary-film#/

There is also this other narrative that I remember coming from Gene Rosenthal where he apparently had a TV broadcast crew out there and filmed the entire thing—but is either apprehensive about releasing it, or wants to release it but is holding it back for some reason. I’m not sure what the story was but it always came across as slight bragging about owning the footage but not willing to confirm that the project will finish anytime soon.

Not sure if there’s been further talk from Gene because a couple months after going to 1000 Rose, I eventually unfriended or unfollowed him so I didn’t have to keep seeing all that toxic-talk happening almost daily, lol. It was nice for a while just for the novel wtf factor but… I don’t know, it’s too much.

Neal Cassady, Friday, 19 October 2018 14:31 (one month ago) Permalink

haha yeah I mean I knew of Adelphi but my first and only impression of him was when he got booted for being such a childish dickhead during the roundtable discussion at 1000 Rose so yeah I don't really get what his deal is

I really actually fucking hate that whole old school collector mentality where it's like they feel like they own the fucking music because they have all these artifacts and shit they hoard

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 19 October 2018 15:35 (one month ago) Permalink

anyone read that White Tears book from last year? I didn't think it was particularly great, but it did deal with some of that overall mentality.
