like herod.

this is absolutely fantastique... francesco de masi is straight killing it on this one, with alessandro alessandroni laying down some ridiculously siqq sitar parts. from 66, a fucking classique of soundtrack/library gems&jams. sorry for the ugly cover, it's the reissue, so this is a 320 rip of a cd i recently bought. enjoy amigos!

waltz for aidan.

private press soundtrack to a british stage version of alice circa 1969. hype says it's a pastoral take on pink floyd's piper at the gates of dawn, which i kinda can see. nice psyche folk kinda stuff for a sunny lazy afternoon.

strange powers.

bought this earlier today & have been floating in it's warm embrace ever since. released in 88 on hearts of space (connie demby, michael stearns, kevin braheny, etc), this is perfect for summer with it's synth washes & angelic chorales & soft tribal dances. my dream owl is soaring through the night air with this as it's guiding light.

pretty okay reissue of some gospel singers covering dylan in 69, produced by lou adler. not blowing my mind, but ya know, someone might want this out there.

on the next full moon.

whimsical sixties pop heavily heavily heavily indebted to free design, the association, & that strain of band. the lyrics are pretty terrible, but the music is really nice. i'm sure someone will want this if yr into sunshine pop.

Song for Charlie

Well well, World Cup's finally over. You must imagine the mess Brazil has been over the past month, and I must say I'll kinda miss it (mainly because of the holidays). Not the reason which finally led me to break my long absence, tho.

Last week, a good man named Charlie Haden passed away. While most recognizable for his association with Ornette Coleman, he played the bass in many excellent recordings (notably Liberation Music Orchestra), not restraining himself to American jazz.

This collaboration with the -- legendary  -- Portuguese Guitar player, Carlos Paredes, is one of them. Accompanying a Portuguese Guitar with teh bass doesn't seem an easy task, which Haden, however, transformed into a subtle, yet splendent amalgamation.
