'Pintail Gate' is constructed to just perfectly live inside my brain wiring. Could probably listen to it on repeat for a long, long time.

My last 6 month + obsession with Prefab Sprout has led me to dig into other 80s British bands with a similar pop approach. I tried to get into Scritto Politti but that just seems way too 80s scholocky or so,thing. Anyway this week I thought I would give the Style Council a shot and it is all I have listened to this week.

I knew about Vic Chesnutt when At The Cut came out because of the big PR cycle around it. I loved a couple of the songs but ultimately dismissed him because it seemed like his disability was being exploited as a gimmick and he came off as such a bitter prick in everything I saw him in (understandably so, I guess).
Cut to now, I decided to "give him another chance" after remembering how good "Flirted With You All My Life" was and I just discovered this massive body of incredible work and this amazing human being behind it all. I'm embarrassed of my earlier take on him. He was one of the great American songwriters from album one.
Of course, my interest in his music led me to watching the documentary about him (up on YouTube for free) and to buy and read Kristin Hersh's book about their working relationship and now I'm having this weird experience where I feel like I just found out my favorite songwriter of all time killed himself. I'm devastated by his death like six years after the fact. It's been a real whirlwind, maaaaaaan.

Anyway, way too much good stuff to post, but here's some:

Barney Wilen's Moshi is an insane amalgam of free jazz, African influences and psych rock. A bit :? of some French dude ethnomusicologist in Africa, but still very good. Apparently just reissued on vinyl.

i've been jamming 'parsley sounds' by the band parsley sound a lot lately

i somehow missed this one when it first came out in the early 2000's and stumbled upon it while doing a label search for mo wax on spotify :ugeek:
apparently it was the last thing they ever released and it's a bit of an outlier in their catalog. sleepy 60's psyche influenced folk/pop with some cool production flourishes. riyl: olivia tremor control, benoit pioulard, beta band

Oh yeah, someone posted this track in the original chillwave thread iirc and it's been in my rotation ever since. Fun video too

Holy fuck this Miles Davis album.



a review from RYM
I understand why people don't enjoy this, I really do. Solos are not the delicate, melodic masterpieces that Miles had indulged for the bulk of his career to this point. Even Bitches Brew and Tribute to Jack Johnson and Live/Evil had lengthy trumpet statements, not the fragments and whinnies he lays down here and throughout the recordings from the Pete Cosey band. And instead of the spacious, dynamic music he'd essayed for most of his career, here are several slices of dense, relentless, murky, funky, noisy music, all designed to go on ad infinitum. If you're one of those people who can't access this, I'm sorry, really and truly, but I love it and hope that in place of endless hard bop sessions, we get to hear more music like this made and reissued and whatnot. In front of an appreciative live audience we have two squawking saxophones, three psychedelic guitars, a drummer and a percussionist, electric bass, and Miles on organ more than trumpet (and the aforementioned fragments coming forth distorted from his (plugged in) horn when he deigns to use it). Not much for the jazz fan to grab on to here. But me, I'm all about an interesting groove, regardless of genre, and hearing this nonet work individual improvisations and variations off the ideas here is a riveting thing, drawing me back to focus this time on one player, next time on another, the time after that on the ensemble movements, and on and on with something new drawing itself into my consciousness with each successive listen. "Moja" (formerly side one of the album), gives free reign to the guitars while others add to and comment on their running speeches. "Wili" (side two) provides a piece similar to the first, yet distinguished by an altered groove and slightly different melodic material. "Tatu" (side three) is perhaps the funkiest single item in the Miles catalog, with a slower groove and more open space than the previous disc, though it would hardly be mistaken for the shimmering sparsity of In A Silent Way or anything. It also boasts a familiar melody, dropping in a bit of the superb "Calypso Frelimo" when the time seems right to do so. "Nne" (side four) also toys with known material in the oft-played "Ife," which is here delivered with the most spacious music anywhere on this disc, leading from the dense grooves that came before to a spare conclusion with only an uncredited rhythm box (probably played by Cosey) chattering away on stage. An excellent set of music, albeit one that a lot of people I know and respect have found difficult to access.

I have been basically blasting nothing but their greatest hits \ singles comps all week. I am amazed that they never made a bigger splash in North American given how massive some of their songs were.

i'd heard "moonchild" and the title track in movies but a rewatch of Children of Men got me to finally listen to the full album

"21st century schizoid man" kinda sounds like Electric Wizard

Awesome. I was coming off of a KC kick, particularly that album, when I was going through the ELP catalog recently. Album / band rules.
