    The only album I have and have heard is A Fistful of Knuckles, and it is awesome.
    Your next purchase should be Wide Open Spaces. With it's country/western theme, it's cut from the same cloth as Knuckles, but with the addition of the live instrumentation, courtesy of Matmos, it's more melodic (in places) and thus a bit more accessible. As great as FoK is, I give a slight nod to Spaces. There's a track, entitled "Morning", that is probably my favorite thing by her ever.
    "We eventually managed to find them near Biskupin, where demonstrations of prehistoric farming are organized. These oxen couldn't be transported to anywhere else, so we had to built the entire studio around them. A scene that lasted twenty-something seconds took us a year and a half to prepare."

    Run the Jewels 2 (This album is amazing)
    The Roots - ...and then you shoot your cousin (I appreciate this album more than I actually enjoy listening to it. They have probably more name recognition then in any other time in their career due to being on Fallon and they release their most challenging album yet that's some real artistry.)

    Just got in the mail: an Australian CD by The Fleshtones, containing their debut EP, Up-Front, plus selections from their Live in Paris release, Speed Connection II, and the complete Roman Gods album!

    Me = very, very happy. 😊

    Lot of country and folk lately.



    Scott's original version was an instant classic but this Loveless cover is transcendent.

    Talk to the Sea, by Gigi Masin



    An absolutely beautiful compilation spanning 30 years of music from this unknown Italian ambient composer.

    In a word, stunning.

    This is the kind of discovery that makes me realize that no matter how many amazing albums I've heard, there are still thousands out there that are just waiting to be discovered. One of those serendipitous moments in which a few clicks of a mouse led me to a new place in which I discovered a future classic and favorite.

    Mark Kozelek, what are you doing to your voice? Benji's stylings were fine, but this sounds, offpitch or something...

    I'll always have his old music.

    Further listening to Gigi Masin. The album, The Last DJ, has solidified my opinion that Mr. Masin is easily on par with any of the greats in ambient music.

    A masterful artist that deserves great recognition.

    So glad to have discovered him this month.

    http://www.laverna.net/releases/Lav22.html




    GIGI MASIN was born in Venice on 24 October 1955. He has been a part of the music scene since the early 70’s. He worked with the most important national and local radio stations.
    From 1978, he has been establishing a fertile collaboration with the poet and writer Massimo Palladino. This venture had been permitting to carry out many and important pieces, for theatre and for radio broadcasting, places where music and voices walk hand in hand, challenging and provoking themselves as well.
    Sounds, tapes, turntables, live electronics are the ground where scene music moves. As a Musician and director , he has had a lot of theatrical and musical collaborations , from short films to staging and act designs.
    The first solo album, (WIND) has been published in 1986. Many others will follow; some of those are “LES NOUVELLES MUSIQUES DU CHAMBRE” for the Belgian Label SUB ROSA (1989) with Charles Hayward, “WIND COLLECTOR” (1991) with Alessandro Monti. Most recent cds include “LONTANO” (2001) and “MOLTITUDINE IN LABIRINTO” (2003) with Giuseppe Caprioli, both produced by Giovanni Antognozzi for ANTS/SILENZIO DISTRIBUZIONE.
    Many authors covered his mìusic, among the others The famous BJORK (the tracks that closes t her concerts it’s an homage to GIGI MASIN’s music), german bad TOROCOCOROT and pianist Luca MITI

    Hmmm. Consider my interest piqued.

    The new AwolNation album, Run.

    Given it a few spins, mostly like it, but it's more melancholic than Megalithic Symphony, with moodier production - synths borrowed from "Another One of My Turns" here, soft guitar bits that recall Pet Sounds there. Not on the same level of ambition as those records, but singular in its own way. The lyrics come off like "automatic writing," fun to sing along with but impenetrable at times. A little too reliant on repetitive drumbeats. Single "Hollow Moon" is a standout. Also enjoying "Kooks Everywhere," "JailBreak," and "Woman Woman." Megalithic was more dynamic in terms of the tone and attitude, but it was also more hit-or-miss on a song-by-song basis.

    Kendrick Lamar's new album is everything I liked about hip hop in the early 2000's, except that there's really no standout tracks from the already released singles.

    Ever hear a song live and then buy the album only to hear the song sound completely different?

    These guys played this song on the Howard Stern show. Sounded awesome. I bought the CD today and my ears are bleeding.

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?
