-I got this King Curtis record for $1.00 and I've listened to it 100,000 times, it's fucking awesome. This is why vinyl is so great... this may be on Spotify, I don't know, but I never would have found it on Spotify, I had to find the scratched up copy in the $1.00 bins at my record spot with the edges held together with Scotch tape... and that also adds to the vibe.
-The Rhodes player for the Doors died. Sad, that actually got me choked up. Nothing but love for the Doors.
-My #1 fave label of all time Numero Group is releasing 2 exciting new LPs shortly... the new Express Rising joint (!!!) and a compilation of the best/early tracks of ambient/new age mastermind Iasos, done correct with the Numero treatment??!!! The fuck outta here.
These are all available's on Spotify:
-New (latest) Jeff Parker solo album with Chris Lopes and Chad Taylor (of Chicago Underground). Of course it's awesome
-Ted Sirona's Rebel Souls? Check the Soundcloud tracks on this page. Any of you Chicago guys know anything about this? He's really good, he's a drummer from Chicago and it is funky instrumental jazz/latin/funk/dub.
-Caveman? Did Rootless already post about them? Caveman is dope, indie vibe kind of The Cure-d out, real mellow.
-New Brokeback was totally awesome.
-Savages? Meh, Pitchfork jammed this down my throat, but it's not all that. I like the lead single off the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs joint, though.
-Lastly, Terry Reed is awesome. Most you Gabino/Zink/Clark Starr types must know him already. He was somehow associated with the Yard Birds, and he was almost the lead singer for Led Zeppelin. Anywho, I scored a Terry Reed LP and Eno Ambient #1 and #2 on vinyl at a garage sale this weekend for $1 a piece. DC!!!
Later bros. #WWALT2013
