After the Burial - Aspiration Incredible guitarwork. Those guys are tight.

 

Followed by:

 

Kenji Kawai Live - Kugutsuuta kagirohi ha yomi ni mata muto. EPOCHAL. I dare you to watch the whole 9:55 minutes of it. Put up the volume and experience its aural beauty in full form.

I've been listening a lot to St. Vincent, lately. Real name Annie Clark. Great guitarist. Quite awesome. (and quite hawt, too :verymad: )

 

 

 

The Strangers Acoustic

 

<-- Great video

 

Actor Out of Work Acoustic

 

 

 

These are quite enjoyable. I'm finding that I prefer her acoustic-only material, however.

 

Before I found those links, I was listening to Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding by Elton John.


baby, take off your beret

True, but it's overplayed, whereas this is buried treasure.

Charles Mingus -- Hobo Ho.

 

Let My Children Hear Music is a very frustrating album. The first 5 tracks range from decent ("Don't Be Afraid, The Clown's Afraid Too") to fantastic (the above, as well as "The Shoes of the Fisherman's Wife Are Some Jive-Ass Slippers"*). Then comes "The Chill of Death" and "The I of Hurricane Sue." The latter is a little too far into the chaotic for my tastes, and the former is just awful-- background wacky music over which Mingus records a painfully terrible spoken-word poem, complete with cringe-worthy forced rhyming couplets. This kind of thing sort of worked a few albums prior, with "Passions of a Man" from Oh Yeah, but that was because the spoken-word stuff on that track was utter nonsense-- made up langauge with a few recognizable words thrown in-- which focused the listener on, well, the passion with which it was spoken.

 

 

*-- If you are a fan of Mingus' song titles, as I am, you will be interested to know that "Shoes" was a re-arrangement of a previous piece Mingus wrote, titled "Once Upon a Time, There Was a Holding Corporation Called Old America."

This Cayetano character is pretty good. :) Been listening to his album for a few months now, and it stands the test of time quite well. Most albums these days get less and less impressive with every listen.

Eels - Mr. E's Beautiful Blues

 

Perfect road trip music right here.

 

Although don't remind E that his song was used in the movie Road Trip, because he'll freak. Apparently he didn't want to let them use it but the studio pretty much forced him.
