Re: Now Playing

Merzbow, Aqua Necromancer (Alien 8)

Probably my favorite Merzbow album, although the split LP with S.B.O.T.H.I. is close enough. His prog rock credentials come to the fore here, the title (and title track) being nods to Van Der Graaf Generator, just to give one example.

Re: Best of 2014

Terrible year in so many ways, and yet a great year for experimental music. Many outstanding records went unheard by these ears, so this list is nowhere near exhaustive. Two records were battling for the number one position (Rossetto and Guthrie) until I heard Pisaro's Continuum Unbound, a landmark ...

Re: Now Playing

I saw the Swans live a couple of weeks ago. I found them to be wimpy most of the time. I was quite disappointed and wouldn't go a second time. If "To be kind" was the best rock record of the century so far, I'd be an unhappier person. It surely sounds like an exaggeration, but in fact the rock idio...

Jamie Drouin/Lance Austin Olsen, sometimes we dissapear (another timbre) Beautiful, very sparse but very inviting in a hide and seek kind of way.

Re: how has your taste in music progressed?

I also have a problem with that notion of "progressing", my experience is more about expanding my taste, and I have to say that I still like most of the music I once loved and still dislike the same music in general. There have been artists I disliked at first that have become favorites over time, ...

I've been playing Drake's Peel sessions lately, short and sweet (just five songs, Time of No Reply, River Man, Three Hours, Bryer Layter and Cello Song), and the playing and singing is A+. Also, without the arrangements these songs sound so much better to my ears, even loving the original string ar...
