Re: Upcoming Shows 2019

If you happen to be in London or close, there's a 4 day residency by Joe McPhee at Cafe Oto . The only previous time I got to see him play live was with Corsano, and I still remember it as one of the best concerts I've seen. I've been listening to more free jazz lately, so I'm really looking forward...

Re: Does It Matter Whether We Own Music?

Ps: best explanation of how 16/44 is absolutely fine as a consumer format is this video and this article . I find the video the best explanation on digital audio I've seen, and especially regarding dither (I managed to fininsh my studies without understanding it properly until I watched this). As m...

Re: Does It Matter Whether We Own Music?

Cool contributions in this thread. I don't really have any thoughts in response. Well, except that I'm baffled by vinyl nostalgia. I can understand vinyl enthusiasm by people who actually grew up purchasing music on the format and who thus have large collections they aren't willing to part with, bu...

Re: Best of 2018

As usual, for me, I don't have a list and I'm still catching up with last year's releases (haven't listened to Green Ways yet!), but the record I most enjoyed last year was this (also augmented with the pleasure of seeing them live): https://f4.bcbits.com/img/a2608135332_16.jpg http://bismuthslow.ba...

I need to go to more concerts! Mentioning Halvorson a couple posts ...

Re: YouTube converter to mp3

Just in case people are interested, there's also youtube-dl , a software that will download either the video or just the audio of the file. You can choose the format if you want although it's a bit convoluted. I'm not sure about what the linked converter does but I wouldn't trust one that did re-enc...

Thanks for posting this, I've had a few listens and it's great! Cool. I heard a cut of hers on a fado compilation and was shocked to discover it wasn't Amalia Rodriguez. She's good! The funny thing is that I'm from Galicia (NW Spain) and I never paid that much attention to Fado in the past. I've se...

Re: music magazines/journals?

So, 10 years after what's out there? I stumbled upon FÖRDÄMNING whilst ordering from Penultimate Press a couple of years ago and I've been hooked. I enjoyed it as I hadn't enjoyed any music related reading in a long time. But the last issue just came out, so I'm looking around to find what's out the...

Re: Favorite Rock Music Books

Yeah! I've been reading it for a while now, and finding it fascinating. I do agree with your points about the "revolutions" in music and he does extensively make a point in differentiating between the labour of the critic and the historian as you say. There's quite a nice interview with him here and...

Re: Favorite Rock Music Books

Wald is just awesome in general; I also second Escaping the Delta. The great thing about the pop music history is that he steps back from the usual approach of trying to construct heroic lineages of artistic geniuses and instead tries to focus on _what most people were actually playing and listenin...
