Uncle Jim - Superstars of Greenwich Meantime (2005)
Postado por J.V. em sábado, 22 de agosto de 2015.

'Ruling at the perpetual pivot and pole of a peerless sound world over the past 25 years, the Sun City Girls are one of the few last arab cowboys of genius. SUPERSTARS OF GREENWICH MEANTIME is the premier long player from the UNCLE JIM... a smoked out X+Y=Fuck You dialectic. Rawer than Rudy Ray Moore, shrewder than Lenny Bruce, more spoken tongue wizard insanity than Lord Buckley and more deranged than Charles Baudelaire; this is Alan Bishop's own personal anthology of black humour, filled to the brim full of diatribes backed up by bad ass musicians (including all of the Sun City Girls). A masterpiece of the SCG cannon.' — Black Velvet Fuckere.

Daughters - Hell Songs (2006)
Postado por J.V. em terça-feira, 11 de agosto de 2015.
'Hell Songs is Daughters' second full-length. It was released on August 8, 2006 on Hydra Head Records. Surprisingly, due to the change in the band's style, as well as help from members of the band Kayo Dot, Daughters were able to double the length of their previous recording, and end up with an album length of 23:13. The album sees Daughters changing their style musically as well as vocally; there is no screaming whatsoever, with Alexis Marshall using a vocal style that could be described as "The sound of Elvis Presley being tortured."'

A Silver Mount Zion - He Has Left Us Alone But Shafts Of Light Sometimes Grace The Corners Of Our Rooms… (2000)
Postado por J.V. em sexta-feira, 24 de julho de 2015.
'He Has Left Us Alone but Shafts of Light Sometimes Grace the Corner of Our Rooms… is the debut album of Canadian post-rock group A Silver Mt. Zion, who now record under the name Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra. The album was recorded by guitarist Efrim Menuck and bassist Thierry Amar at the Hotel2Tango in 1999, mostly during breaks while touring with Godspeed You! Black Emperor. It was published by the Montreal-based record label Constellation on March 27, 2000.
   'The album was born out of a desire by Efrim Menuck to record something for his dog Wanda, who died of cancer while Godspeed You! Black Emperor were on tour. Menuck described the recording of the album as a "Jewish experience", due to his immersion within a small, friend-based Jewish community in Montreal. Indeed, Menuck also stated that, as a result of the community, the album title and songs have a sense of Judaism, although the band tried to not make it conspicuous.There is some Jewish imagery in the lyrics to the track "Movie (Never Made)", but their exact meaning remains cryptic.
   'The album was initially to be named He Has Left Us Alone, but it was decided that this was too weak, and didn't convey the proper mood. Menuck professed that he was confused with the idea that songs or album titles should only be a few words in length and be perfectly clear. Instead, Menuck believes that things of that nature can be described with many words, giving sensibility and a "frame" to the work.
   'On the original vinyl release, the songs were arranged into two tracks; on CD releases, the songs were indexed into four parts each, resulting in eight tracks. The sleeve artwork lists inaccurate track times, all rounded to even minutes.
   'The track "13 Angels Standing Guard 'round the Side of Your Bed" was featured in Harmony Korine's movie Mister Lonely.'

Motek - Motek + Re:EP Edit (2006)
Postado por Andre Carvalho em quinta-feira, 9 de julho de 2015.

Postagem original 26 de Jun de 2012.

Excelente banda de post-rock belga, o Motek iniciou sua carreira com o auto-intitulado de 2006.

O álbum é excelente, possui uma textura muito bonita que vai gradativamente melhorando música por música. Os destaques sem dúvida vão para 'Hero', música extremamente bem cuidada e que possui um clima introspectivo bem particular, e para 'I Am Your Son', canção sádica, experimental e desesperada. Esta última realmente merce ser ouvida com atenção.

Vai junto o RE:EP Edit com canções do auto-intitulado com uma melhor produção e alguns pouquíssimos vocais acrescentados. 

Não sei mais o que dizer sobre esse álbum e essa banda

Joachim Kühn Trio & hr-Big Band - Out of the Desert Live at JazzFest Berlin (2010)
Postado por Andre Carvalho em terça-feira, 28 de abril de 2015.

"Pianist Joachim Kühn is one of the few global German jazz stars. With his playing style, which transcends all categories, he has made his mark as a world-class musician, and on contemporary jazz, blazing entirely new trails. The musical cosmopolitan Kühn sees himself in the tradition of jazz, and also in a close relationship with European concert music. But despite all this he is committed to a contemporary sound. He reveals vehemence and sensitivity, masterly craftsmanship and imagination, an unmistakable touch and an unerring sense of dynamics. In the interplay with musical partners of many years' standing, in ever new and often unusually challenging constellations or on his own and his solo concerts, Joachim Kühn makes music an event. All his life Kühn has demonstrated curiosity, open-mindedness and a love of experimentation like few others. It was this intellectual flexibility that led the young East German classical pianist to jazz. After fleeing to the West in 1966, he quickly became one of the most important representatives of the jazz avant-garde in the scenes of Paris, Los Angeles, New York and Hamburg, constantly seeking encounters with the most diverse of musicians, from Michel Portal to Ornette Coleman, Archie Shepp, Jean-François Jenny-Clark, Daniel Humair, Joe Henderson, Michael Brecker and Rabih-Abou Khalil and the Germans Heinz Sauer and Michael Wollny."- fonte

Loren Auerbach & Bert Jansch - After the Long Night / Playing the Game (1985)
Postado por Andre Carvalho em domingo, 19 de abril de 2015.

Nos dois primeiros EP's lançados em 85 (fevereiro e outubro, respectivamente), da então desconhecida Loren Auerbach, constava num canto quase escondida a nota de crédito "with the presence of Bert Jansch".

Pra quem conhecia o trabalho do Jansch (quem não conhecia?), ou mesmo era fã, uma nota dessas certamente soava estranha. Obviamente, dada a magnitude do músico que ele era, a simples "presença" dele já seria suficiente para influenciar muito qualquer trabalho que seja. Mas esta nota não pode ser interpretada assim; certamente o que se buscou foi não ofuscar o trabalho da Loren que recém estava sendo inciado e já demonstrava um talento formidável como cantora. 

Vendo por este ponto de vista, parece totalmente plausível ter se creditado ao Jansch sua simples "presença".

Inicialmente foram dois LP's lançados no mesmo ano de '85, e dez anos depois, em 1995, com a já total difusão do formato digital do CD, foram compilados estes dois álbuns, After the Long Night e Playing the Game, em um só

Outros grandes nomes da cena folk da época participam do álbum, como Cliff Aunger, Richard Newman, Dave Philips e Michael Klein.

As canções foram basicamente compostas pelo Richard Newman ou pelo Jansch, duas canções foram compostas exclusivamente para estes álbuns, como Give me love e Carousel, outras são canções folclóricas como Yarrow e Weeping Willow, e outras foram reaproveitadas de álbuns anteriores do Jansch para receberem novos arranjos e vocais, como It's real? do Heartbreak que havia sido lançado em 1982. 

O álbum tem a atmosfera geral dos álbuns folk's da época, com o diferencial da qualidade dos músicos, o que obviamente o ressalta e o torna muito acima da média. Aliás, essa atmosfera meio oitentista carrega uma leve nostalgia que sempre cativa.

O álbum apesar da qualidade é bem pouco lembrado. Um dos motivos para isto talvez seja que a Loren não quis seguir carreira como cantora profissional. Logo após o lançamento do After the Long Night e do Playing the Game ela preferiu ingressar seus estudos em uma universidade onde pesquisaria Literatura Inglesa, Inglês e Islandês antigo. Jansch ainda chamou ela para algumas gravações posteriores, mas nada que a fizesse voltar para uma carreira musical. Bom, ao menos nos ficou este registro de sua bela voz e grande talento.
