C.J. & Co.

C.J. & Co. - "We Got Our Own Thing" [1977]


Shawn Phillips

Shawn Phillips, Contribution (A&M 1970)
Doesn't take much more than a strum a drum and a phaser to keep me happy. Unless it's a hot gtr lead ....

Shawn Phillips - "Withered Roses"

Shawn Phillips - "Screamer For Phlyses"

Also I changed up my muxtape with mostly new stuff, 2007-08 (check the sidebar for updates, it's got its own spot).



Mountain, Live: The Road Goes Ever On (Windfall 1972)
You got that? Louder!

Mountain - "Long Red"



Sly & the Family Stone - "Can't Strain My Brain" [1974]


Cool looking night at Love this Thursday, Cosmo Vitelli (Bot'Ox) with Runaway and David Bruno. Ddiissccoo.

Shep, Have U Gone Bald Inside Your Head? (Vanguard 1969)
Got this record a few years ago in a stack my aunt handed over to me (thanks!), it was sealed and I wasn't confident it would be any good so for a while I just bugged out over the cover and figured I'd sell it later. Then I ran across it in the stacks at Academy in Williamsburg with a real-money pricetag -- not in the dollar bin -- so I decided to crack it open. Pretty nice! Especially the opening track, "Good Bill's Street," with its weird organ shuffle matched w/ plaintive vocals. Couple other tracks have some gentle pop-psych touches like sitars ... but most of it is along the lines of "The Cowboy," guitar-based folk with oddball, almost Shel Silverstein lyrics.

Shep - "Good Bill's Street"

Shep - "The Cowboy"

Let's go swimming

Short notice but tonight's after-party for the Arthur Russell documentary Wild Combination should be a cool night of music over at Heathers ....


Indian Jewelry + Lau Nau

"Swans" - live @ Cake Shop NYC 5/8/08

Punkcast gets their footage up quick, I'm already reliving Thursday night. Indian Jewelry is serious business, a louder than loud strobe-lit, tribal pounding, ecstatic echo chamber of midnight music. Dig for more artifacts and take your second chance to catch them at Death By Audio on Tuesday.

Lau Nau, Nukkuu (Locust 2008)
Beautiful elusive folk music from Finland.

Lau Nau - "Lue Kartalta


Mike Theodore Orchestra

Mike Theodore Orchestra, High on Mad Mountain (Westbound 1979)
Big fan of Cosmic Wind here (and I'm not the only one) but the heavy electronic groove on "Wonder Man" might trump it.

Mike Theodore Orchestra - "Wonder Man"


Osborne, Osborne (Spectral 2008)
One of my most anticipated LPs of 2008 .... Osborne's "Afrika" 12" was on one of the first ever mixes I did for the site. Along with that track the Ruling EP rules so I'm psyched to hear the rest ... classic house music light-beams shining off a 2008 disco ball. He's also got a mix up at Beats in Space.

Osborne - "Outta Sight"

Osborne - "There"


Fela Kuti

Fela Kuti - "Monkey Banana" [1976]

(Comes from an album of the same name, also found on the b-side of a later pressing of Zombie ... magic stuff.)
