Some For Dudu :: A Dudu Pukwana Companion

5/23/2018
More
“If he plays a gig in some club, it’s the talk of the town for the whole year. Who can afford to pay for so much entertainment?… Well, for those who do not know Dudu Pukwana, he is the heaviest of the heaviest alto saxophone players and for many of us coming from South Africa… […]

Bola Sete :: Falling Stars

5/18/2018
More
Nestled at the end of a recent installment of Deerhunter’s weekly, and highly recommended, “Sunday Night Radio Hour” Spotify mix, was Bola Sete’s “Falling Stars.” Previously unknown to us, the expectations were for a pleasant strum of acoustic guitar. We love Sete’s guitar playing here, whether it be the jazzy bossa nova sway that he […]

Aquarium Drunkard Presents: Gospel Jubilee Vol. 2 — A Mixtape

5/17/2018
More
Forcing someone to read a lengthy explication of the music found in the second installment of the Gospel Jubilee would only delay the experience of hearing — feeling — these heavenly, heavenly sounds. Over an hour of unbelievable falsettos, palpable bass lines, smoking–even Hazel-esque–guitars, fervid singing voices, chunky synthesizers, perfect drums, and much more. All […]

Jennifer Castle :: Angels of Death

5/16/2018
More
“The fictional concept of death rears its head in so many of my songs, always on the periphery, or as a side note, or a reminder, a punchline or the bottom line, always sniffing around like a death dog. For once I wanted to try to put it in my center vision. In order to […]

Yung Wu :: Shore Leave

5/10/2018
More
When you’ve made one perfect record, why make another? Shore Leave, originally released in 1987, is Yung Wu’s sole long-player (though a covers album has circulated privately). It’s a total jangle rock gem, filled with sparkling songwriting, infectious rhythms and gorgeous melodies. But even though the band’s discography is brief, you know the sound: Yung […]

Shopping :: The Hype

5/9/2018
More
London post-punk dance dynamic, Shopping, deftly combine jolt laden rhythms with cognitively fluid messages for a smooth finish.

Opening with the barbed wire bass […]

Aquarium Drunkard Presents: Zach Cowie / Goodbyes & Beginnings (A Mixtape)

5/8/2018
More
In my 20+ years of record digging there isn’t much I haven’t dropped a needle on, but nothing will ever be as near and dear to me as my first love – the psych/folk, English folk, and acid folk sounds of the late 60s/early 70s. The seed for this mix was planted about four years […]

Marc Ribot :: The Aquarium Drunkard Interview

4/25/2018
More
On YRU Still Here, the third album from guitarist Marc Ribot, bassist Shahzad Ismaily, and drummer Ches Smith’s Ceramic Dog combo, absurdist rage is made explicitly political, and flamenco is transmuted into scathing punk funk. “Subtlety is not my forte,” Ribot says wryly over the phone. No kidding. Opener “Personal Nancy” begins with a howl: […]

Daniel Bachman :: Feast of The Green Corn (Tascam Version, 09)

Craig Smith :: Love Is Our Existence (Maitreya Apache Music)

4/23/2018
More
Los Angeles’ Craig Smith, aka Maitreya Kali, is one of the greatest songwriters of the 60s, though his work is known (consciously) to only a small but devoted cult.

Sly Stone :: The Casio Garage Demos

4/18/2018
More
Society is intrigued with reclusive artists, the ones who achieve some measure of success only to seemingly shun the fame and notoriety that accompany it, quickly disappearing from public view. There’s practically a cottage industry devoted to it. See: the crazed, drug-fueled stories surrounding the likes of Syd Barrett, Brian Wilson, and Skip Spence. But […]

Beverly Copeland :: Good Morning Blues (1970)

4/17/2018
More
With vox akin to Linda Perhacs, Beverly Copeland dropped this one in 1970. Soul deep, Copeland’s vocals are sparsely accented by acoustic guitar and trumpet, riffing on the stirring black hound of depression that does not abate with the morning sun. Beverly Copeland :: Good Morning Blues

On Land In The Sky, Alfredo Thiermann (formerly of the Chilean krautrock band Föllakzoid) and Tres Warren (the Psychic Ills mastermind) meet up on the astral plane for a series of extended sonic meditations.
