Music Listens for March 19-23

What can I say? It’s been a slow music week, er, past couple weeks.

Here are a few tracks from the albums I’ve been enjoying.

Adanowsky – Amador
Yes, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s son. The music is interesting.

Crippled Black Phoenix – (Mankind) The Crafty Ape
It’s good.

Neurosis – A Sun that Never Sets
And how’s about an oldie? (Which reminds me. When are these guys going to release another album?)

Music Listens for January 2-6

I’ve still been playing with the idea of putting together a best-of list, which would require I take a thorough accounting of every album I’ve listened to this entire year, then making a list of what I thought were the best ones. Fun fun.

Anyway, here’s my list for this week.

Sun Ra – The Futuristic Sounds of…
Someone how I pulled this out of the stack and listened to it quite a bit.

Snowman – Absence
I’ve always enjoyed this album , but each time I listen to it I wonder about just what it contributes to the landscape of post-rock. In any case, it’s a joy to listen to.

Miles Davis – Sketches of Spain
Needless to say, this is a classic.

Grant Green – First Session
This guy plays jazz guitar like few others.

Music Listens for November 14-18

Besides one instance, seems like it’s been a mostly oldies week.

Atriarch – Forever the End

This new album caught my interest. Brutal yet restrained. The vocals aren’t annoying, and the atmospherics add resonance. Reminds me of something, but I can’t remember what.

Mono – Under the Pipal Tree

Talk about an oldie. I didn’t realize that they released this album way back in 2001! Mono just never ceases to amaze me. I wonder if or when they’ll release a new album.

Jakob – Subsets of Sets

The pretty country in New Zealand must have provided (and continues to provide) some grand musical inspiration. Jakob are another band who must release a new album (soon).

Beast in the Field –¬†Lucifer, Bearer of Light

The Destroying Angel is from Beast in the Field’s newest offering Lucifer, Bearer of Light, and although I’m not sure how much I like it compared to 2010’s World Ending, the new album has some slimy, distortion soaked doom metal goodness to ponder.

What I Listened to the Most this Week: 2/7–2/11

It’s week 5 in the quarter and we’re on a roll!
“Kahlil The Prophet”

What I Listened to the Most This Week: January 31- February 4

It was a quick week, but the tunes were a-plentiful.

Del Rey – Immemorial

This is some good, straight forward, guitar driven post rock. Every song builds to a fine crescendo, and keeps me interested throughout the LP.

Jakob – S/T ep

This is an oldy but a super goodie. Gattaca is a song that you have to listen to on a good stereo with plenty of bass to really get the full effect.

Dukatalon – Saved by Fear

Here’s some heavy, heavy sludge metal from Israel. They’ve got quite a sound.

Eric Dolphy – Last Date

Basically classic jazz.
