Music for 9/12/19!!! Bug Martin, Ciel

@@@ Bug Martin: Dharma Blues (Pyrrhic Victory, 2019)  I got to this via a music publicist email.  I”m listening to this first review after starting below.  My Apple Music or something associated with it is still quite fucked and I can’t hear the first two songs.  I’m starting with Diamond in the Coal and it’s a lonesome country track with some electric guitar splashes in the rear.  Martin himself has a pretty classic country voice and this tune has similarities to old school Rolling Stones country rock blues except there’s nothing more than a tambourine here.  The fourth tune dispenses with the electric guitar chord washes and goes for a more old school vibe.  I like Martin’s voice, a bit nasal but nowhere near Dylan levels of craziness.  The fifth tune, Jim Rodgers’ Blues (my third tune due to the fuckedness of the interwebz) is a stunner to my ears.  He adds some falsetto and the blend of sadness and beauty is super enjoyable.  Imma stop here cuz he went out on a high note.

@@@ Ciel: Why Me? (Ghostly Intl, 2019)  I got to this edm record via a shout on the Twatter.  My Apple Music shit is all fucked up so I can’t listen to the first track of this 34 minute EP and the release above where I would usually start.  The second tune Go Fish is a playful dancefloor banger with some high bell, some robot blip action, some vibe like sounds and a whipping staticky thing.  As I said it’s not dark and it funks along in a non techno manner.  Let’s peep more as I like this but I don’t need to hear the whole sandwich.  This third tune, called Hipwrecked, gets back into more familiar techno with a vaariation on the classic kick hat business.  After a brief warmup it gets into pretty hard hitting techno funk.  Hence the title Hipwrecked, you’ll dance your ass off.  If you’re up for some techno with some mustard on it this will work for you.  Brisk beats, stripped arrangements, driving sections, it’s happening.

Music for 9/5/19!!! Ezra Furman, Toko Telo, Kadr Laviansky

@@@ Ezra Furman: Twelve Nudes (Bella Union, 2019)  I’ve heard Furman’s music before (I think) but he/she (he/she won’t clarify just sayin’) was mentioned in the Line of Best Fit weekly email with a new release so there ya go and I will hit it with another listen.  In the first tune I remember why I returned to Furman’s music.  He’s not wishy washy.  You can like or not like what he does but you have to appreciate his big energy, he airs his shit out and doesn’t play it safe.  He sings his ass off here and I appreciate that.  Ragged, falsetto, angry, rock star and sometimes not and whichever way he wants to roll.  Musically I appreciate some fairly hard rocking as it’s not in vogue and he rocks in a somewhat different manner.  A bit classic rock, some punk, and even some Devo like action (in the 4th tune Rated R Crusaders).

@@@ Toko Telo: Diavola (Daniel Sprant SPRL, 2018)  I saw this supergroup from Mali mentioned in a gig announcement email in upstate New York.  I love African music, it’s the shit.  This first tune is a percussionist, an acoustic guitar player, and an electric guitar with a female singer.  The blend of acoustic and electric playing and the circular style makes for an intoxicating effect.  Dizzying if you try to listen closely.  If these were white dudes this would be prog but this is African people and the emphasis is secondarily on virtuousity.  I tend to gravitate to the hard rocking African music but the interplay between the two guitars here is hype.  If you’re down for straight up beautiful melodic playing and aren’t craving a drumkit hop all over this.

@@@ Kader Livansky: Your Need (2MR, 2019)  I saw this Russian underground electronic artist profiled in an Australian music mag.  It’s a bit of a tripped out vibe to the cover and the video below but we check all flavors on this here blog.  It’s a tripped out disco dance thing on this first tune with a repetitive vocal loop and some big ass cheesy synth patches arpeggiating.  The drums are more retro while I’m used to hearing hip hop drum machines which try to funk you right into the ground.  Livansky gets into some weird electronic music here — equal parts groovy and trippy and an unusual audio trippiness.  I wouldn’t call these lo fi sounds but they’re not typical dancefloor bangin’.  I can see folks splitting both ways on this, I think it’s fresh while others might find it too weird.

Music for 7/26/19!!! Indian Summer, The Oh Sees, Them Coulee Boys

@@@ Indian Summer: Woolworm (Numero Group, 2019) This is a 7 minute single I got to via a msuic publicist.  It opens with an old black female singer and they layer some clean indie style guitar beside her before she’s faded out and the band comes in.  There’s a nerdy dude barely audible in the mix speaking poetry, before they hit the ol’ distortion pedals and they get to rockin’!  Either I can’t appreciate the minimalist nature of this or there’s too little here to grasp onto.  Or I’m not in the mood to try to finger what the gent is saying.  I made it 5 minutes.

@@@ The Oh Sees: Smote Reverser (Castle Face, 2019)  A friend and regular reader of this here blog asked me what I thought of this record so I said I would peep it not for him but for me and for everyone out there.  The first tune comes out with a heavy tom rumble and some barely creepy/intimate vocals before they launch into a big fat rocking section.  These guys have the sound of a veteran band, they’re playing is tighter than a welldigger’s ass.  I like this first song as it rocks well, has shades of Radiohead and is not without its charms.  The second tune (clipped below) swirls in more epic classic rock including wee little pubes of Black Sabbath and Blue Oyster Cult.  Complete with an organ solo, Deep Purple dudes!  I find this one a bit not to my taste.  I’m agnostic on the worth of classic rock at this point and that’s pretty central to listening to this record as it’s very influenced by mid-70s classic rock.  Gotta give these guys props for playing at this level and going full rock star.

@@@ Them Coulee Boys: Midnight Manifestos (Lohi, 2019)  I got to this pre-release track via a music publicist email.  I’m forced to watch this video, no I’m not as the record is up on Apple Music with the pre-release tracks.  I spelled the band name wrong, idiot!  It’s a poppy alt-country rock kinda thing with a driving bass line, a basket of sweeter guitar sounds (including mandolin).  It’s a solidly pleasant  summer track but I thought there were too many vocal tracks and I coulda used some sort of break/outro change if they’re gonna stick with the classic 4 minute track.  Nice sounds.

Music for 7/16/19!!! Roisin Murphy, Lil Nas X, (Sandy) Alex G

@@@ Roisin Murphy: Incapable (Loaded/BMG, 2019)  I have not heard of this dancefloor diva til I peeped the Guardian’s songs of summer article that came yesterday.  This is some classic retro disco biscuitry with low key vocals — she’s not a 5 octave Mariah Carey kinda gal.  I don’t mind her vocal style but it would be more compelling if the sounds were less canned and fresher.  I’ve heard this track many many times and you have too without realizing it.  8:26 of white wedding dancing?  Perhaps.  Some people just want to get out their and wiggle their ass and there’s no shame in that but….c’mon there’s enough vanilla ice cream out there to fill many stadiums, naimsayin’?

@@@ Lil Nas X: Old Town Road (Sony, 2018) I’ve read tons about this song and Lil Nas X but I haven’t peeped it til now as I’m looking at the Guardian’s songs of the summer.  It’s a mildly country tune over a fat jeep bass and a trap beat.  It’s an unusual pairing sonically but it’s pretty simple like a popsicle and it comes and goes without making much more than noticing he black country drawled over some hip hop beats.  I don’t understand what all the fuss is about.  This smells a bit one hit wonder-y.

@@@ (Sandy) Alex G: Gretel (Domino, 2019)  A pre-release offkilter entry into the Guardian’s songs of the summer.  It gets into an indie groove with some Tim Hecker screaming types of drones in the back.  In come the shoegaze-y vocals and it’s the musical equivalent of an almost broke carnival.  At around 90 seconds the tune morphs into a strummed acoustic sing-a-long type of thing with what sound like calliope pipes.  Also gets garnished with shaker and mandolin it is both bright and dark at the same time.  Me personally I’m not feeling this as a summer track but that’s just me and it seems more like a music publicist’s successful crashing of a summer song list.

Music for 6/25/19!!! Mark Ronson, Jane Weaver

@@@ Mark Ronson: Late Night Feelings (Sony, 2019)  I’m sure most folks didn’t see the NY Times puff piece on him.  I’ve never been a particularly big fan of Ronson as he’s only a couple of notches above the tragic figure of Calvin Harris.  White people trafficking in funk, you must be careful.  That’s reverse racist and shit!!  After a strings/vocal harmonies intro the title track kicks in and I think it’s gonna be an updated disco biscuit.  I wish I was wrong but it is as predicted.  It’s not full on disco but despite the attempt at emotional lyrics it’s disco funk and sad disco funk at that.  I don’t see how this old school dancefloor banger is going to dislodge the current funky club music.  Maybe it’s aimed at the older analog crowd, which I get.  The record is stuffed with guest vocalists, even Alicia Keyes, who appears to be the most well known guest.  It’s not the most terrible music ever, it’s very predictable and it doesn’t sound particularly inspired.  Maybe sad funk is a bit of a dream.  Shake your booty through your tears.

@@@  Jane Weaver: Loops in the Secret Society (Fire, 2019)  Another record off this week’s All Music notable release email.  It opens with tons of vocals, medium processed and stacked.  It morphs into a cosmic electro jam with swirling synths, a percussive clock sound and a buildup.  I tipped a little over halfway through as the buildup was stalled and I felt like I was in a science fiction movie.  I think I’m not super into the beats, they’re far from the funky and more in the video game neighborhood.  When the third tune Arrows comes in we get the crowning touch of the New Age angel voice which revolves around the phrase ‘nothing can hurt you’.  Not really my thing, but check it for yourself.

Music for 6/17/19!!! Paul Bley, Drake, Yeasayer

Welcome back for another week in listening at Deep in the Music, a blog name inspired by old ass ’70s porn movies!

@@@ Paul Bley: When Will the Blues (ECM, 2019) A piano trio record off this week’s All Music notable release email. I’m finding this first tune better than what I expected — I know that sounds dicky but some straight jazz is just so….straight. I mean I heard this before so much straight. Piano, bass, drums with Gary Peacock on bass — I think he has skills. Secondly, the record doesn’t have a classic ECM New Age production sound. Just so cathedral reverbed and finely shoned. The second tune, Flame, is a ballad and I won’t bust out the boo/hiss machine cuz I’m nodding off. I guess the first tune is first up for a reason as it’s the freshest of the four tracks I peeped.

@@@ Drake: Omerta (Cash Money, 2019) Holy Shit, Drake has shit another one out for the masses! I’m no white ass hip hop expert but it sounds to my cracka ass ears that he’s going old school roughneck on this track. And when Drake does that I think it’s mad funny. Not scary like Biggie. I find the lyrics more interesting than Drake’s usual boasty thing, but he should stop making rough tracks, I can’t stop lauging! I really could give a flying fuck how rich you are Drake, you still soft ass Drake bitch. The arrangement is solid with a spinny harp kinda thing and the beat’s all right but Drake ain’t nothin’ more than a horny teddy bear.

@@@ Yeasayer: Erotic Reruns (Yeasayer, 2019) Off this week’s All Music notable release email. It’s both poppy and funky with the funky component less than the poppy part. The singer is doing a white boy falsetto. The second tune goes full ginger ale soda with an all over panning synth string sound. A lot of energy I give them that. Now let me be honest, this ain’t no Funkadelic full funk explosion. This is a popped out shadow of that which is fine cuz a lot of white folks can’t take the full black funk explosion. It’s like spicy food, you gotta start slow. In my opinion if you’re into this I would send you over to a couple of Prince’s early pre-1999 poppier records. They have similarities to this formula, or the other way round depending which way you gaze pon it, but fuck that’s Prince and he just airs his freak flag bigly. I miss Prince, this is a starter funk record, peep it and move to the real business.

Music for 6/7/19!!! Palm Springsteen, Future, Kishi Bashi

@@@ Palm Springsteen: Sister Sister (TAG, 2019) Oh no, marketed in a music publicist email as this generation’s LCD Soundsystem!  Who needs that?  The tune opens up quite briskly with a half/half split between rock guitar and synth actions.  Rocking the mellow verse and the explosive chorus as thousands who have gone before.  It’s riding a fine line between a lot of energy and cheesy dance synth action.  Much like Nine Inch Nails but not nearly as dark.  Better than I thought it would be.

@@@ Future: Government Official (Epic/Sony, 2019)  #1 track up on the Apple Music hot tracks.  It’s unclear what he’s talking about as he’s got a loose spilled vibe to his rapping.  There’s a lot of international locations mentioned which could be international drug dealing as I guess Future has tendencies in that direction.  There’s also a repeated mention of getting her spurt spurt on her shirt shirt.  Hmmm….  I like the beats, trap business — nice and gritty and thick, super compressed bass over which he kinda rambles on regarding his issues and his business.

@@@ Kishi Bashi: Omoiyari (Joyful Noise, 2019)  Some super indie-fied folk indie rock with sweet, slightly melancholic vocals that I got to via last week’s All Music notable release email.  This is a soundtrack for a documentary about the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II so it’s part of a serious piece of history.  The spirit of the music is nowhere near the darkness associated with that classic move by F. Delano Roosevelt.  It’s actually quite happy and uplifting music which I find odd, but it’s not my thing.  I impressed by the arrangement of the third tune, Marigolds.  As regular readers know indie rock is not my favorite genre but this is a high quality specimen of that genre.  They’ve done a wise thing by keeping the production style straightforward and not going out of the way to overly prettify the prettiness because that would be too sickly sweet.
