KZSC now regularly wakes me up in the morning. Last Sunday it was lessons in meditation. “One. *pause* Lighten. *pause* The. *pause* Heart. *pause* Two. *pause*…” During the week I get an hour of music until the 8 AM news roll at which point I’m sufficently depressed by the world that I get up and attempt […]
Guns N’ Roses has a special place in my heart and this album is an easy reminder that I should take time out every day to smell the roses and rock out. [itunes id=”5669937″].
OK GO has challenged the listener, to listen closer with this two disc album. Complete with interviews with the band about the album, this worthwhile two-disc set presents a handful of tracks from buckets, and is an exellent demonstration in modern rock composition and production. Though I’m a little surprised to feel that Shooting the Moon (T15/D2 T2) […]
Los Lobos are a group of Los Anglitos who broke the latin music scene with their uniquely Anglito lyrics, latin beats, and chicano centric musical attitudes. Themes of the barrio and a world that had yet to be well represented outside of the kicked-culture of Olvera Street and Super-Rocker Carlos Santana exploded onto the scene […]
If it weren’t for the heavy handedness of the PRC, Glee-East would be the massive sino-pop super-star brother to the American-Pop Hit-Show. Yet, since there is no Glee-East, so we’ll have to explore that which is. The Music of Glee, which is actually the music of American Pop adapted by Hollywood, to produce the music […]
Couldn’t say I knew much about this Son House until I watched the outstanding documentary “It may get loud.” (post about that coming) The film asks three very different guitarists to talk about their journey through rock and roll. Throughout the film, Jack White continually points at Son House as his total inspiration for everything. Absolutely […]
Fortunately for this group, one of the songs many people know them by highlights the name of their bands name. Unfortunately, most of their listeners still don’t know much of them beyond The Strut, a billboard #3 in 1982, and rarely associate them with hits like Rock This Town and family favorite Sexy and 17. However, their best of […]
The belated February exclusive for Jim Noir has been released. Another 6-track EP full of new and interesting studio-science creations. Beginning with Intero as a gentil warm-up to the omnipresent Horses With Insurance that lays a heavy organ drum combo, not unlike some of his earlier musings. I Am You Are lands the spaceship onto Planet Noir […]
The most beautiful woman in the world is dead and above her sits the a grandiose white wonder. Her name is Mumtaz Mahal and Water Lilies surround her mausoleum. This is a tribute in effect to her beautiful memory. You two can pay tribute. Here’s how: Tools: 1 Particle Collider, Large Sized 1 4 HP BlendTec, […]
Soul Science is the kind of world album that most Bay Area ramblers seek out. With lead guitar, jazzy beats, and a foreign rhythmic language, it’s the kind of music that could be telling you subversive things, but the cops would never know. [itunes id=”271852657″].
Blues for your enjoyment. [itunes id=”2516593″].
Jim Noir’s January EP, Helicopters Left Jim’s albums continue to do a better and better job of filling my living room with a pleasant jazzy-trite white noise. The kind of noise I like noticing I’ve been listening to for the last three hours, like my Nicola Conte collection, except less expensive. However, Helicopters Left seems to […]
