    A few weeks on after first listen and I’m a little obsessed by Ben Howard Noonday Dream, it’s a masterpiece of an album. It’s quite inaccessible considering he was once considered Ed Sheeran’s peer! - it just sounds so uncompromising.

    This is one of the more inaccessible ones, but by goodness, stick some headphones on and let it wrap around you..

    I’ll have this marked as my funeral song until something more beautiful comes along!

    I love how Ben Howard is just doing whatever the f**K he wants. He had a really popular first album, then made a really dark, effecty second album, and now he's basically made a recent This Will Destroy You album. Amazing stuff. 

    I've been listening to Nels Cline a lot after a recent Earthquaker Devices interview.

    Totally, he’s basically “doing a Radiohead”, but with quality control!

    Loving Kurt Vile's new album. Don't think he has made a bad album actually. Pretty cool recent Pitchfork performance here too:



    Also, how about this from a few years back. Awesome song. Can't remember the last time I was aroused by drumming.

    Primal Scream - Vanishing Point - amazing record again Ive lost my CD!
    Rico Rodriguez - Man from Warieka (taken my time getting to this - its utter class - soooo funky)
    Andrew Weatherall - Qualia - a more 'live' sounding record - Mr Weatherall is in a bit of form recently I think

    I’ve got Take Five on a compilation album which is a bonus track on the cd version of Man From Warieka by the look of it ( sorry, bit convoluted). It’s really good so that should be an album I should get into. Our image of Rico now is a bit doddery in his latter years or as a backing musician but back in the 70s he was clearly at the top of his game. 
    Dum dum dum, dum dum de dum, dum dum dum, dum dummmm.

    Today:

    A load of Tadd Dameron - specifically, https://www.allmusic.com/album/1947-1949-mw0000068816

    Some viol consort music (Jordi Savall).

    and Mark Lettieri, specifically, the Spark and Echo album, and this solo version of one of the tracks, which I am messing about learning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLeC2xkPXvo   bits of it are nice and easy, and bits are deceptively hard.

    What's going on with that drumstick? I've watched it at least 10 times in slow motion and I still can't figure it out!

    Same here. It's in SWG3 though and the sound for Stephen Malkmus was atrocious....

    Yes - that record, Man from Warieka, is seriously good. I honestly believe it stands up to anything of its ilk released at the time - the band is superb. I am going to have a look at some more of his stuff.

  • I'm on a total Teenage Fanclub trip right now. Fuelled by going to see them last night in Glasgow where they played all of Grand Prix and Songs From Northern Britain back to back, it was really bloody good...

    Been trying to learn this song with the tutorial below.  It has the barre chord Bm and I am now starting to get it (at last!)

    Dweezil Zappa is an absolute beast of a guitarist.

    Man that must have been a great gig. I’ve loved TFC since bandwagonesque came out but only seen them once. Real shame about Gerry leaving, sob.

    Between Tides by Roger Eno. Minimal, classical loveliness from Brian's less famous brother.
    My wife asked me to stop singing Wonderwall.
    I said maybe.....

    This guy is probably one of the best on YouTube. Only 16k followers. His version of Brothers in Arms is awesome, but I like the casual walk in to a guitar shop and do this on this video.

    @gringopig   What did you make of the Kurt Vile gig? First time I have been in SWG3, was worried when you said about the sound, but didn't find it too bad, considering the type of room it is. Really enjoyed the gig, some lovely guitar tones on display.

    Yes, really enjoyed it actually. I had ear plugs in but the sound was good. What a great show!
    I don't know what the deal was with the Jicks gig. It must have been Joanna Bolme's bass amp. She did get the tech's on at the start...
    No hint of the booming resonance at Kurt Vile.
    great gig. Hope you enjoyed it too!

  • Also liking Kurt Vile's new album.

    J Mascis' new album is excellent, some songs have that Dino Jr folky/rock vibe of Get me and Going Home. Acoustics with plenty of electric J solos, which I will never tire of. Drums on most of 'em. Sky is All We Had is my fave

    Because I’m easily influenced this because it gets mentioned on That Pedal Show. Little bit of guitar effects history,

  • John Mayall ... again ... Moving On (I've got it on LP and CD - one of the few that I've got on both formats) ... Freddy Robinson is phenomenal
    "Working" software has only unobserved bugs. (Parroty Error: Pieces of Nine! Pieces of Nine!)
    Seriously: If you value it, take/fetch it yourself
