The rabbit hole just got really, really deep! 1 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 07/11/2014 at 6:28 pm RIP Charlie Haden, one of my favorites in a genre I only have a limited appreciation for. His playing on Ornette’s Change of the Century, and “Ramlin'” in particular, is amazing. Same goes for that Beck song he’s on. Same goes for a half dozen other records I own featuring him. 1 High Five ladymisskirroyale says: 07/11/2014 at 7:24 pm Mr. Royale and I had a trip to Amoeba records yesterday and bought a bunch of new stuff: 1. Eno-Hyde’s High Life. So far, based on 3 listens, it’s GREAT. For fans of Underworld and My Life in the Bush of Ghost era Eno. 2. A Lemon Jelly set of Eps (hey, for a dollar, it’s worth a listen). 3. Real Estate – Atlas. We loved their last album so look forward to listening to this. 4. Camper Van Beethoven – El Camino Real. The SoCal twin to their Northern Caliornia-focused last album. Cool artwork. 5. St. Vincent’s latest (whatever the Prince-like title is). Finally got around to it. 6. A Sunny Day in Glasgow – Sea When Absent. Pretty dense production and bears more listening. So far, on my meh list (it was M. Royale’s choice). Have you heard any of these? Want to weigh in? Any new music recently purchased? 0 High Five cherguevarra says: 07/12/2014 at 8:27 am http://variety.com/2014/music/news/tommy-ramone-last-surviving-original-member-of-influential-punk-band-dies-at-65-1201261584/ With the passing of Tommy Ramone, is this the first band to have zero surviving members, as of this point? 0 High Five cherguevarra says: 07/12/2014 at 10:35 pm To answer my own question, no. Four Tops and Jimi Hendrix Experience also. 0 High Five al says: 07/12/2014 at 10:44 pm Hey, Back Office, is there any way to keep that (to me) annoying Saturday Night Shut-In pop-up from constantly popping up at the bottom of the screen? 1 High Five cherguevarra says: 07/17/2014 at 10:47 pm An amusing article about Chicago and the album cover where it all went South: http://superiorshit.blogspot.com/2013/01/our-thoughts-on-why-chicago-is-not-yet.html 0 High Five Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
