Anything you want in particular, or don't want? I might stick with the collaboration theme.

Hmm... I haven't run into Zeppy too much, but I know he made an awesome S African comp that I just got around to recently. Anything in particular you're looking for? Your last.fm appears heavy on psychedelic rock and reggae... I have something in mind, but it might be a long shot.

no, just try to stay out of metal and rap, and you'll be fine with me. (i'm usually very open to a lot of music)

Mate, im really not fussed with whatever it is, as long as it something that you fancy.

I have no idea about your tastes so I am just gonna head along the path of something south african, unless you have any genre recommendations?

BTown787 sent me Back From Semoa by the Angry Samoans, and being one of America's seminal early garage punk albums, I was happy to get exactly what I expected: violence, energy and a fresh dose of politically incorrect lyrical content/delivery. Although not nearly as abrasive as a lot of stuff I'm into, I appreciate the fact that none of the tracks, with one or two exceptions, clock over a minute or so, which makes it ideal for a quick adrenaline rush without the buildup. Overall, very good!

8/10

Johnny Thunder - So Alone



Story Milo sent me this album...here's my listening experience.




Pipeline - Nice. Has a nice classic rock feel to it.

You Can't Put Your Arms Round a Memory - Not a big fan of his voice. The guitarist is pretty good.

Great Big Kiss - I'm a sucker for horns, I would love this track without all the talking.

Ask Me No Questions - God I hate his voice. Great instumentation though.

Leave Me Alone - Ok.

Daddy Rollin Stone - Really catchy track. Still can't stand the vocals.

London Boys - Same as above.

Untouchable - Great song. Easily my favorite so far. His voice actually melds well with the music this time. Real nice Jazzy vibe once the horns kick in.

Subway Train - Nooooooooooooooooooo. There his voice goes again. First song on the album I didn't like.

Downtown - Sounds like Johnny's take on the blues. Not bad.

Dead or Alive - Hmmmmm. Don't know if I like this track or not.

Hurtin - Good track. His voice works well with this one also.

So Alone - Not really liking this track. Huge dropoff in tempo compared to the rest of the album. Good nominee for saddest song though.

Wizard - Another great song. Real jazzy vibe to it. Definately one I'll listen to again.


Overall I would love this album to death if it was an instrumental. Johnny (I'm assuming that's the lead singers name) voice just doesn't do it for me.
The guitarist is pretty damn good (pretty sure that's Johnny too), every track for the most part has a really catchy beat to it. The stand out tracks in my opinion
are the ones infused with a bit of jazz. The album also has a real nice classic rock vibe to it.
If you like the Vocals you'll love this album. If you don't like the vocals you'll probably listen to it and search the net for an instrumental version,
but you won't delete b/c one day you know you might want to listen to it again.

Overall - Good Recommendation.

I give it a 6.5/10 because even though Johnny's voice annoyed me to death I still enjoyed the album and will eventully listen to it again. Go figure.

If you like his voice easily an 8/10.

+81 sent me:

SELDA - s/t

As I had some connection problems when the link was sent, I felt that the best thing to do in the mean time is to search who this "Selda" is, or what's her album about.

So I went to Selda's LastFM page, and here's what I found:
"turkish wonder, heroine of the anatolian invasion. a powerful voice and charged lyrics gave her the moniker of “the joan baez of turkey,” which underestimates her drastically.
check the b-music/finders keepers reissue of her self titled 70s album for a mind blowing explosion of psychedelic radical folk pop. selda is a revelatory and groovy in new ways experience for your earhole."

So when I got the album, I was preparing myself to hear some Psychedelic sounds. I plugged the player in the car, to listen to the album on my way to Uni, and went on the road. I don't think I can say that it's a bad album, but instead of Psychedelia, I was hearing the music we put in marriages, or any event we can put folkloric music in (which is everywhere in here).

I live in a country that was occupied by the Ottoman Empire (Now Turkey) for more than 4 centuries (1514-1915), so I think we soaked up every Turkish thing 'soakable', which includes Folk Music. So I think I can say, without a doubt, that this was no psychedelic music, it was just middle eastern folk music. I'll give them the credit of using an electric guitar with some added distortion at times, but that was at the beginning of the song. So at the beginning of the song that even has a typical folkloric melody, for only 5 seconds, we listen an electric guitar, and some weird effects repeated every 5 minutes. And when I say a folkloric melody, I mean a melody made and remade for more than 5000 times, so I guess I couldn't enjoy the album, because it was all too familiar.

Now what I don't understand is, why everything that has an oriental touch becomes instantly psychedelic. I think the Orientalism in the Psychedelic Rock is what pulled me to it, but how can our folk be your prog, I'm sure there should be more to it.

I'm sorry I couldn't like the album, but when it gets to middle-eastern folk, I've heard much better stuff cz I do live here. I did like some tracks, but the 'Psychedelic' tag did annoy me. So if you need any recommendations on some good folk, I guess I can find some names.


**Examples of what I was talking about earlier, can be 'Misserlou', which is now considered 'Surf music' when it is simply a middle-eastern folkloric melody played on an electric guitar with added speed. Or 'Paint it Black', which is based on a middle-eastern rhythm.

I do understand what you're saying about the psychedelic music tag. I don't see this in the same way as psychedelic music that's considered 'trippy' but in the sense that the Indian inspired Beatles music is considered psychedelic. It makes sense that you might be accustomed to this because of your location but I don't hear a lot like it here in Canada. I really like this album so feel free to recommend me some more Middle-Eastern folk like this.

Btw, sorry if I seemed lashing out at the album, I wasn't that annoyed when hearing it, it even was enjoyable. But awkward effects put in the music are a standard in that place, that's even the signature for 70s music here. Anyway, I'll put my thoughts on some album to recommend. I guess it should be soon.
And I am still thankful for the album :P
