Welcome to the middle-east, where new is old, and the old becomes new. Much like an ancient middle-eastern city, technology is fused with old world customs, and in this case, music. Heavy use of the Sitar and bass to create a moody and beautiful soundscape. My recommended track is The Lantern, as it showcases perfectly what this album is about, fusing soft drumming, bongos, electronic rythms, and harp to create a beautiful track. Danger in the skies, fires blooming around every corner, truly you feel lost in parts of the world you have never seen. This album is a market lit by fire in the dark night, as smoke billows towards the expansive sky. Worth listening to in every regard.

Gonzales himself is a weird musician, but he makes some very nice calming jazzy music. His music (Well in this album) is mostly him playing the piano with a simple drum beat keeping the rhythm, which I believe he does to. And not to forget, he has a pretty good voice as well, which tends to fit the music very well.

This is a great album, somewhat jazzy, some what loungey, with some very nice piano work. It is something of a 70's sounding album I guess you can say. I am mainly uploading this since I am just listening to this and really enjoying it. So give it a listen.

Cassetteboy - The Parker Tapes (2002) |

[There are 98 tracks on this album. Click here to view the track list.]

DOWNLOAD
PURCHASE

Comprised of 98 tracks The Parker Tapes is built from thousands upon thousands of samples, sound bites and music clips that have been hacked, slashed, looped and rearranged to skew meaning and entice parody. Entertained by this exercise or not, you can't help but marvel at the execution. The amount of work that has gone in to harvesting the raw material for this record is breathtaking and as a result there is little that escapes Cassette Boy's cut and paste satire.

Shit and Shine have been assaulting audiences with their unique take on barely controlled, forcefully percussive, and endlessly repetitive stoner-skronk for the better part of a few years, they’re far from a known entity even in their home country of England. With a lineup that often balloons to encompass as many as five drummers/percussionists at any one time, the records they’ve unloaded on the public thus far betray not only a constantly fluctuating lineup, but also the different approaches to brute force hostility a variable membership like theirs necessarily entails.

oh god, this is awesome. Silver is one of my favorites shoegaze songs ever. it starts so powerful yet calm, and then the vocal begin, making everything more pleasant and mellow. like some random last.fm said: "how can a song be so heavy and light at the same time?" exactly my thoughts. oh and yeah, the rest of the ep is pretty great too.

XBXRX are a punk rock band, but not your typical run of the mill "the government sucks" punk band, they tend to play noise influenced punk.

This album though, is pure improvised music. It is very strange, and because of that, and the types of instruments used reminds me of an early Residents album at times. It goes into many stages from very ambient like rhythms with strange percussion, to a more noise sound with loud and chaotic drumming. It pretty much goes everywhere since it is all pretty much improv.

13 Ghosts - The Strangest Colored Lights (2008) Thursday, October 30, 2008 |


1. The Lonely Death Of Space Avenger

12. Photographs
13. Transmissions

They come from Birmingham, Alabama. I have no idea where the music comes from. 13 ghosts' premiere album blew me away. The music is mature and hearfelt, with touches of Pink Floyd and Western movies, combined with an edge of some sort. It's powerful, uplifting, and heartbreaking all at once. If you've ever drove into the sunset, leaving your cares behind, and want that feeling again, this album has it in plenty. Beyond The Door in particular is a track that shouldn't be missed.

DOWNLOAD
PURCHASE

Her previous album, Journey In Satchidananda, was recorded when Alice Coltrane was basking in the "Universal Love or God in action" via Swami Satchidananda in anticipation of her upcoming journey to India, and Universal Consciousness was what she recorded when she returned. While Journey is an excellent album, you can still feel it held down by the bluesy heaviness of Earth. I can't begin to imagine what kinds of spiritual revelations she encountered with the Swami in India, but the dramatic blossoming found in Universal Consciousness gives us a peek. It's a decadent sound illustration of stepping though a prophetic looking glass, and shows us what Alice found there (couldn't resist). At its deepest foundation the album is still based on modal blues, but something's been unlocked - it's freer and more avant-garde, while also more meditative and hallucinogenic. Shrill but gorgeous swooping string arrangements weave into ringing harp, bitter tones of electric organ, playful drums and bass, and transcendental drones. It's like thousands of years of Hindu mythology descending upon a soulful American jazz den lined with melting velvet walls of rich, fatty colors. It's not often that you're tempted to use words like "glissandi", "crescendo", "staccato" and "raga" to describe a jazz album, but there you go. Sit in rapt awe - you don't have to believe a word of the liner notes, just believe devoutly in Alice's creative vision.

The Morningside - The Wind, The Trees, and The Shadows of the Past (2007) |


1. Intro
2. The Wind
3. The Trees
4. The Shadows Of The Past
5. Outro

This album embodies everything I enjoy about doom metal, slow weaving tracks that give a sense of being somewhat beyond yourself. When I listen to this, I feel as though I am lying in a massive forest, the sky is grey and rain falls, crashing into the ground. The Morningside simply comes through in being able to give feeling to their music, something many bands struggle to do.
The songs reach huge lengths, the word Epic comes to mind when thinking of their length. Truly one of the better albums that I've listened to.

Suburban Rhythm are a very jazzy/funky rock outfit. They play a very random group of songs on this album, from very funky songs like "18 Inch Ruler" to a somewhat Frank Sinatra esque song "Big City Lights" to random, yet catchy songs like "Blue Hawaii".

It is a very odd album, very energetic, with some very nice bass lines, and good vocals, it may be a hit or miss for some, but I really enjoy it. It may also be good to note, it is hard to find this album in stores, or even new copies of it, because of that, I can't provide a good "where to buy link".

PURCHASE

The seven songs here are a strong, smart combination of pummelling riffage and carefully-planned changes, something like a Ruins' 45 played at 33 – or a more complex updating of Godflesh. There's a surprising amount of variety, given that it can be tricky to individualize tracks when they're instrumental and this heavy; it's nearly all deep, aggressive rock churn, dominated by smashing drums, ultra-low grinding bass and guitar that shoots off shards of distortion in all directions. The ingredients don't vary much, it's the mixture of them that maintains interest. And, wisely, Noxagt display an awareness of the listener's attention span, keeping the album at an easily-digestible 38 minutes.

elliott smith was one of those sad boys with guitars. his music is beautiful, depressive, simple. most of 'em are vocals & acoustic guitar only. suffering from depression and alcoholism, he killed himself at home, 5 years ago. but his voice will remain forever, on the records, the vinyls, the mp3s... this is my favourite album by him, although every cd has its masterpieces. I'll probably post either/or and the self-titled some other time. there's an Elliott Smith memorial at LA, outside Solutions Audio, you can check it out here or here. pretty moving stuff. his lyrics are fantastic too, make sure to listen closely.

I'm sure I will forget how I found this in the coming months, but I am quite glad I did. The winding of the music throughout is beautiful, the composition is sublime. I must admit, it is hard to describe apart from this: The album is like sitting inside of a cool and dark cave, smooth rock lining the walls, as you stare out into the Aurora Borealis admidst trees as tall as they are ancient. That's how it feels to listen to this album.

"Musically it is a hybrid of acoustic songwriting and electronic music making, employing layers of guitar and analog synthesizers over electronic beats and textures. The songs have defined verses and choruses, but take time to examine timbres and sonic combinations not often found in the pop world." it's one of those indie + eletronic bands, they do actually a pretty good sound. male & female vocals.

The Bird Ensemble - Migration (2007) Monday, October 27, 2008 |




1. No.1
2. No.2
3. No.3
4. No.4
5. No.5
6. No.6
7. No.7
8. No.8

The Bird Ensemble hails from Nashville, Tennessee, U.S. And don't worry, the track listing is not a mistake, but rather just as eclectic as the band itself. Slowly does the tempo build from the first track, rising like the sun, from visceral darkness into the sky, transitioning from ambient to more of a post-rock vibe, and twisting perfectly from track to track. It flows into piano, accompanied by the soft strumming of a guitar. No.6 is an especially wonderful track, combining a multiple of elements to express in it's ways. If you like beautiful post-rock, you will like this.
