The Four Seasons - Ozawa, Silverstein (1982) Sunday, November 21, 2010 |

This version of Vivaldi's Four Seasons is truly, well, definitive. This -is- the Four Seasons in all of it's glory, with no mistakes whatsoever. Yes, you read correctly, it is mistake free. And damn does it sound fine. Feel free to toss your other renditions of this beautiful piece in the garbage, this is the real deal.

This album has a very sad story to it, often regarded as a failure by the label and even the producers of it, it was cast into the shadows of obscurity left to remain as a long and forgotten cult album. No one really remembers it, no one talks about it, no one really knows of it. Though us with the internet are able to obtain it quite easily it isn't exactly something people go looking for, again due to it being lost in obscurity and in the cabinets of time.

The album itself is a somewhat forced collaboration between italian producers Romano Musumarra and Claudio Gizzi back in the mid to late 70's. Using the MCS70 analog synth they made 4 tracks (cd version 1 was split into 3 parts, thus 6 tracks) in little under 4 weeks of studio time. As I said, the finished result was not well liked by both producers thus they never worked together again.

While listening I was quite taken by how fantastic the album really is, it's a strikingly haunting futuristic soundtrack which could only have been created in the time it was produced. I've listened to it countless times and personally regard it as one of the finest things I've heard from the era of early electronic music and italo disco. For those curious it can be compared to other early italian electronic music and soundtracks from early italian horror and sci-fi films.

Each track is just fantastic, I often find myself at a loss to describe it. Though it is very futuristic, it has dramatic overtones and very interesting sounds behind it. The album itself just feels cinematic and epic, though I guess some could see it as dated due to it being mostly all analog synthesis, it really hasn't aged much. I think the "retro aspect" to it gives it some of the albums finest qualities. You simply don't get albums like this anymore.

In the beginning there was the "MACHINE"
the survival and the organization of the planet depend upon the "MACHINE"
the future and the past depend upon the "MACHINE"... the past?
but who wanted the "MACHINE" ?

Gramophonedzie - Assorted Music Saturday, November 20, 2010 |


All I can say about this release is that the more Gramophonedzie tunes, the better. They're making some of the best house/electronic right now, and hopefully it will stay that way. If you haven't had the pleasure of hearing his music yet, you need to.

Fredrika Stahl - A Fraction Of You (2006) Tuesday, November 16, 2010 |


If you decided to download or look at the previous Stahl album I posted, and found that you weren't a fan of how it was more pop-based... this one's for you. It's just a really fine jazz album, through and through. It's one of those albums with songs they use in films that you immediately want to hear again after it's over. If you like Jazz, download and purchase this album, it's fantastic... and has an awesome walking bassline on track one.

The Third Eye Foundation - The Dark (2010) Monday, November 15, 2010 |

Sure, it is broken up into 5 tracks, but it may as well not have been. The Dark is more adventure than album, a conceptual masterpiece which will blow your fucking mind. Beginning with softly swirling heavenly sounds, the bass comes in, pounding upon the album as a blacksmith tempers his work, and then enters the chaotic rhythms similar to those found on an Aphex Twin album, before dissonant and well-placed noises threaten to consume you. It's telling a story... a story of collapse; of degredation and rebith. It changes subtly, moving slowly from theme to theme as it winds along it's long forgotten road, rushing past vast whirlwinds of sound, space, and time into an ambient electronic wasteland.

Fredrika Stahl - Sweep Me Away (2010) |


Fredrika Stahl grew up in France with aspirations of becoming a dancer, but soon turned towards being a singer/songwriter. Originally beginning with a jazz-style, she has since moved towards a sound which more strongly emulated pop, reminiscent of the arrangements found on classic Beach Boys albums. But don't expect a glitzy bleach-blonde happy-go-lucky pop album, it opens with the chantings of a ghostly choir, and sprawls out into a piano piece, and if you strain to hear it, the soft shaking of a maraca. It opens up to the drum and basslines, and Stahl's voice shines through the whole way as the strings come in, accentuating her poignant lyrics.

It's pretty rad.

The M's - Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out (2008) |


A good single from The M's on 7" vinyl. When I was listening to this, I thought two things to myself: "Damn, this is a really cool single", and "Damn, these guys sure love their distortion.

Double bonus: Polyvinyl has a ridiculous sale going on (albums for 4-7$, posters for 0.25-.50$), and I got this nice single for a charming 0.30$. You guys should check the sale out as well, it's aces.

Ads |

Well, like it was mentioned a while ago:
http://sharethread.blogspot.com/2010/08/tidings.html

We've added some ads to the blog. What does this mean to you? Nothing probably, which is cool.

Now, what we're going to use the ads for is a good thing, which will mean something to you! Money from the ads will go towards buying physical copies of albums, in addition to t-shirts/posters, etc., and music equipment (headphones, turntables, etc.)

We'll be giving stuff away in contests, so you get a chance to acquire some cool stuff, but this only happens if we get money from ads.

So, if you would please, add sharethread to your adblock whitelist and if you see an ad you like, click it. Don't click ads just because, the blog doesn't get money if that happens, but if you like it, click it.

Overall, this should be good for everyone, you guys get music and music stuff, we get to make that happen. Win/win.

Comments/suggestions as to what to give away/questions are welcome, you don't have to log in to make a comment, and we'll (I'll) reply to all comments.

Thanks guys,
hresvelgr
