"On Form and Growth" by Turing Machine
from A New Machine For Living
was super shocked and saddened yesterday when i read about jerry fuchs.
i saw turing machine play at north sixth randomly a few years back while i was at a show for a band i can't recall. i remember being so stoked on their whole set though, and then being blown away at the end when they finished by doing a can song.
i would see that dude out in brooklyn here and there at shows and was seriously star struck every time, thinking of how gnarly his drumming was at that show.
all the best to his friends and family
on form and growth
"first gymnopedie" by yusef lateef
this album is rad, james black's drumming is perfect as far as i'm concerned.
could have put a number of tracks up from it, but i figured i'd go with this one. love hearing those drums behind this beauty.
"news" by tune-yards
from a recent album of crazy lo-fi folk-pop recorded on a digital voice recorder using a lot of ukulele and some nice vocal phrasing. this one sounds like it could soundtrack a scene of dancing with monsters around a fire on the beach from where the wild things are.
the rest of the album is all over the place, its worth checking out.
"be here to love me documentary" by townes van zandt
be here to love me dvd
if you haven't seen it, pitchforks got it streaming on their site. pretty heavy and worth watching.
"Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Steve Shelley, and others are featured in this comprehensive doc about the enigmatic singer-songwriter. The 100-minute film directed by Margaret Brown is shown in its entirety."
"First Rays of the New Soma Sunrise (Calmer Remix)" by STS9
from Peaceblaster (The New Orleans Make It Right Remixes)
my friend collin palmer letting loose and feeling free on his drum set as usual. not sure what the original is like, but the remix is unmistakably calmer.
"?" by peter brotzmann quartet
saw a copy of nipples go for relatively cheap on ebay last week. made me look for some brotzmann on youtube...and of course, its there.
also, didn't realize that machine gun was available digitally. pretty rad.
"the boy with the perpetual nervousness" by the feelies
from crazy rhythms
this one is for ladyboy...
amazing tune here...from the slow build up at the beginning, to the nice little conversation between the guitars and a pretty much perfect ending.
speaking of crazy rhythms...another mix please dan, mike?
"occapella" by van dyke parks
from discover america
got this album after fjord posted john jones a few months back. love when this track pops up on random ipod play. all time arrangement here.
"hollow log" by beck
from one foot in the grave
this beck album was recently rereleased with bunch of bonus tracks. go grab it...32 tracks!
quite a poet this guy.
"camel (nosaj thing remix)" by flying lotus
from la ep 2 x 3
it was crowded and hot as hell at love last night, and it also smelled like everyone in there had been bathing in campbell's soup for the past week...but flying lotus was well worth putting up with it.
that guys got some serious talent, and it was pretty damn rad to see him play.
this track is a scorcher from his remix e.p.
i haven't transferred his new 12" yet, but i highly recommend picking it up.
