Ceschi - The One Man Band Broke Up (2010)

I was quite surprised by this album, it's not too often I hear hip hop songs mixed with acoustic folk songs, but this guy can really make the transitions fairly well. Ceschi's flow is really good too, when he gets going it's like a runaway train, nothing is going to stop him but it does make what he's saying hard to hear. I haven't quite got to the point where I usually start dissecting lyrics and try to determine the meanings of the songs, but a few have really stood out for me.

Also I can see why Urban says all the album covers i post are either brown or black.

Jaill - That's How We Burn



Damn is this an enjoyable album on first listen. Thanks to swim for the indirect recommendation. This is essentially indie pop/rock, with pop punk energy (I can hear some Ramones influence) and great vocal harmonies. Think maybe a combination of The Shins' debut with Ramones - maybe. The vocals are different from both of course - but that is kind of the vibe I get from the music. Reminds me of Generationals a bit, too. And Morning Benders' Talking Through Tin Cans (vocals are probably more similar to this). Good energy...good for smiling.

^ That's Elvis Costello's King Of America and his album of collaborations with Burth Bacharach for those who aren't in the loop. I must have listened to these two albums about a thousand times by now. Neither of them are perfect, I'll admit that much, but they just never get old for me.

Got a few peeps coming over later, so I'll be breaking these two delights out a bit later as well...


^ Two of my favourite d'n'b albums, and another two you can quite simply never go wrong with. (Photek's Modus Operandi and High Constrast's True Colours)

Quite a few albums:

Elton John - The Union
This album has a lot of purity between both Elton John and Leon Russell. I was expecting some great vocals and piano work, and that is exactly what I got. It's quite a relaxing album as well, I will listen to it when I need time to let the stress escape my body.

Eluveitie - Everything Remains (As It Never Was)
Im not a huge fan with their other work, but this album definitely sticks out, mostly for the instrumentals that are put into this album. These two songs are both amazing:




I can't say the rest of the album is all that great though, it definitely has it's moments, and than it has it disappointments.

Lordi - Babez for Breakfast
Not sure on the amount of Lordi fans here, but this album is probably one of my favorites by them. It has such power and rock all into one CD. I will say however that the lyrics are not always the best, which is probably the point. But sometimes lyrics will throw off what the album is supposed to be about. But all in all, not a terrible listen.

I will post more when I can think of more to say.

I should definitely get around to checking this album out. I've been listening to Honky Chateau a lot lately and think that might be a good indicator that I'd dig Union too.

Woven Hand - S/T



Really great folk music with a gothic/dark feel to it... very refreshing listen, matches these cold winter days perfectly

Ooh I'll have to look into this because I enjoyed Allen's earlier Banana Moon. These Soft Machine members do tend to put out some good solo albums don't they?

Both a departure, and a return to form. Imagine that!

Sula Bassana & the Nasoni Pop Art Experimental Band, 2006, Germany


Quote:
TRACKLIST:
  1. Slowner
  2. The Terrascrew
  3. Ridin'
  4. Go!
  5. The Night After
  6. Pay for Freedom
  7. Daydreams
  8. Emmerting Spring
I just recently found this Sula Bassana fellow, whom I believe to be a bassist primarily. He has released many more albums than I originally thought, with various lineups. The first album I heard was The Night, which was a really interesting space rock kind of band that I was ecstatic about adding to my collection. I found that he was also behind the album/band Interkosmos. And now I'm spinning this one over and over.

The album starts with Slowner, which still seems to be my favorite. You can hear for yourself.
YouTube - Sula Bassana & Nasoni Pop Art Experimental Band - Slowner


The second track, Terrascrew, continues the jam forward while letting off the gas a little, so to speak. This prepares you for Ridin' and Go which make up the meat of the middle of the album. The Night After brings you to almost a complete halt, as it winds it's way forward backed with haunting, fiercely whispered vocals. As this long interlude, which is what I made of it, comes to an end, the band brings us right back out of it and down a completely different sound and path with Pay For Freedom which unfortunately is not uploaded to youtube.
I would have posted a link to this one, so make sure to find a way to hear Pay For Freedom everyone. That's where the experimental part of their name came from. And it was done quite well.

We're back to normality so to speak with Daydreams. This is the most relaxing track on the album. We're taken on a nice surreal journey with soft sung lyrics. Then, as if being dosed, we're dropped off in the very vivid Emmerting Spring. Haunting instruments back the sounds of water and birds. Chanting against a simple guitar and bass 'riff'. Experimental atmospheric relaxation. Lots going on. This one clocks in at 9:24. It's worth visiting this 'place' again any time I need to find comfort.

Well that's the whole album. I was just gonna say a few words, but there y'are...
