Weirdo rock/electronica from Chicago.
Pointer Sisters – I'm So Excited
Exploring Low Fi with my M2s and KRK KNS 6400, pretty impressed honestly!
Cuz I'll hammer your toe like a pediatrician
Listening to this except from the Live at the Fillmore album:
This is a beauty.
Old Drum'n'Bass is the best Drum'n'Bass
Ed Rush & Optical - Compound (this really deserves to be heard in better quality)
Han Zimmer channelling Phillp Glass
Glass has been such a massive influence on soundtrack and commercial music.
The bass in this track's intro is ridiculous(ly delicious)
EDIT: and if you think I mean the bit starting at 0:24, wait, you haven't heard nothing yet.
Yeah, just watched the reboot of the Magnificent Seven. James Horner did an old school score that was atrocious - swelling strings with huge dollops of cheese.
Sometimes anime soundtracks are worth it. This is the ending song. Visual Kei meets Industrial, kind of works...
Queued it up at work.... wishing I was at home right now with main rig.
Country Poem by Pat Metheny, from the album New Chautauqua. Part of last weekend's vinyl haul (very nice shape!). New Chautauqua was Pat's fourth studio album, and his first solo release. The name of the album is evidently a reference to a bygone movement/performance troupe of which Pat's great grandfather was a part. It was originally founded in Chautauqua, New York (hence the name). Interesting Wikipedia article for broader context here [link]. The album itself overtly evokes Pat's midwestern roots. In his earlier releases, his Missouri-ness sort of shines through the music unintentionally, but here it's on full display. He makes liberal use of rhythmic strumming and arpeggiation throughout the album. There is also a conscious effort to improvise over triads, lending to the Kansas City vibe. Perhaps unsurprisingly, you can draw a clear connection between his work here and later solo releases such as One Quiet Night. On this particular tune, Country Poem, I hear a lot of similarities with Julian Lage's bluegrass playing (e.g., Close to Picture w/ Chris Eldridge). It's one of the few records I can recall where Pat plays so purely in that style. Beautiful!
