Ambient Guitar by Matt Borghi

https://mattborghi.bandcamp.com/album/ambient-guitar

Sort of like if Mark Knopfler decided to make an ambient record.

Plankton could do something like this on his electric ukulele but it would be more Steve Howe than Mark Knopfler and it would probably bore Plankton to tears making it. Iíd like it though.

lodestar shirley collins

At first I thought the search engine was ****ing with me but this 2016 comeback masterpiece apparently has gone without mention on Music Banter. Octogenarian Shirley Collins fills a space carrying the torch for English folk music that positively must be filled. And no one could possibly do it better. Her age, the time in absence (38 years), the needed response to Americana- all of it a perfect storm. An instant unassailable classic.

orrin evans knowing is half the battle

This guy has joined or is joining The Bad Plus. I think of The Bad Plus as a pretty good band. Are they a poor manís Martin Medeski and Wood or is it the other way around? Or is there no reason to associate the two bands? I also donít know if this record is nu jazz or smooth jazz or what. Seriously, tell me if you know. I dislike how itís marketed. I mean the cover. Mr. Serious Jazz Musician. Gin and tonic. Some stupid hotel. Thereís better stuff coming out all the time mentioned in my free jazz 2018 thread. But why am I so bitter? This isnít even very famous and itís actually pretty good except some vocals. Donít ****ing sing. Oh. My. Gawd. Itís a terrible David Bowie cover. Kooks from Hunky Dory. Oh Jesus thatís ****ing awful. Kevin Eubanks from Jay Leno and Branford. Heís really good but itís hard not to hate.

Good music here:



Bad Music Here:



Now you know.

ulises conti bremen

Ulises Conti is a good composer from Argentina. This album, Bremen, is a collection of field recordings he made in Germany.

Here he is playing piano on a rooftop in an unrelated video

Damien Jurado - Visions of Us on the Land

Heís been making good music for a while now. As long as he keeps it stripped down it still works here. The big production stuff sucks though. Keep your trigger finger on the skip button.

This is one of the good ones. A little Leonard Cohen. A lot Simon and Garfunkel

Mark Kozelek Sings Favorites

This 2016 release is a good reminder that itís not always a good idea to do something just because you can.

Same goes to you too Ryan Adams.

Kodak Black - lil BIG pac

The album cover is a homage to Ready to Die. The title references Biggie and Pac. However, musically and lyrically thereís no connection. Itís just an eye catcher album cover.

Saying that Kodakís guest rappers all drop better rhymes than he does is like saying Malcolm was the second best guitarist in AC/DC. Kodak (from Florida) is an Atlanta style trap rapper. Well, poor manís trap. Mumble Rap. Itís all groove. Itís all hypnosis. 100% on track. No distractions. This isnít music to reflect on. This is drug music. Lean. Weed. Booze. Volume. Abandon. This is music you surrender to. Donít worry. He does no wrong. Itís always that trippy demonic accent that is exactly how he really talks. Definitely one of the best hip hop recordings of 2016. Formulaic perhaps but itís the newest formula and he implements it like he was born to do it because he was. **** your Nas wannabes.

FantŰmas by Amiina

Tries to be atmospheric while also exploring traditional musical motifs but doesnít quite hit the spot.
