I also didn't realize until now that he's a member of the Coltrane family. Some of them play on this album and it makes FLs sound (here and on old suff) feel even more legit. A jazz background explains a lot of it.
Hmm, I did not know that.

Yeah, if you have the CD then you can see the credits. I read somewhere (can't remember where) that FL is the nephew of Alice Coltrane, the Jazz harpist who was John Coltrane's second wife. They had several children one of whom is Ravi Coltrane (FL's cousin?), saxophonist, who plays on the new FL track 'Arkestry'

Also you can see that track 15, 'Drips', features a guest artist called 'Auntie's Harp' so my assumption is that 70-something Alice Coltrane plays on this song.

Ringo Starr - Beaucoups Of Blues

This is a good album, to hell with the haters

Not exactly brilliant as there is the odd dud here and there, but otherwise this is a great album of classic country covers, all of which are given a real friendly warmth by Ringo's croon. Something I'd recommend to anyone who's ever thought about giving country a try and's willing to forgive Ringo the joke that is the rest of his solo career.

Cool. Yeah I have the CD but I only skimmed through all the credits/copy. I read the Pitchfork review yesterday and they mentioned his relation to Coltrane...maybe that's where you read it?

Treat - Coup de Grace (2010)

A recent dig of mine. 18 years after their last album, one of Sweden's more talented 80's AOR ensembles has constructed the catchiest melodic rock album I've heard this year. Top notch production, blistering guitar and fantastic vocals up the wazoo..basically just loads of fun for anyone who might be looking for an 80's rawk-fix tonight.

So, yeah, all that Ringo-ness earlier's gone and got me on a bit of a country kick, so out have come a few of the old favourites. Clockwise from the top-left; Sweetheart Of the Rodeo by the Byrds, the Desert Rose Band's self-titled debut, Bob Dylan's Nashville Skyline and Emmylou Harris' Elite Hotel.

It's an instrumental hip-hop day up in this piece, and among others, I've been enjoying these albums.

P-Love - ...All Up in Your Mind
Released in 2005 on Sixtoo's label Bully Records, and possibly recorded partly using equipment belonging to Amon Tobin. A very chill and organic album belonging as much to indie electronic as to hip-hop, partly due to the use of live instruments...it almost feels like post-rock at times. A little-known gem that I enjoy immensely every time I come back to it.




Dimlite - This is Embracing
Swiss beat maker Dimitri Grimm's second album on the German Sonar Kollektiv label, from 2006. Pretty downtempo yet upbeat and fun. Some vocal samples here and there, a guest MC or two, a bit of jazz, some live instruments as well of course. Some ideas that run through much of today's instrumental hip-hop and "wonk" can be found here...in 2006 and his 2005 debut. Though he himself is obviously influenced by Prefuse 73.




Dimlite - Prismic Tops
His latest 8-track 45-minute EP from this year, this time on Stone's Throw sister label Now-Again Records. A bit different from his first two albums, a bit more wonky/twisted and he even sings on some tracks but it's well distorted and fun. A lady named Elan Tamara sings on the song 'On The Same Picture' and I quite like it.
















Some Flying Lotus will be up next...
