2010 anticipated albums

30th Dec 09 (Wed) Leave a comment

So, the year end and decade end recaps are in process (the monkeys I ordered are in the back room typing away) … I needed something to fill the gap… here are some artists who are expecting to release new material in 2010, all of which I’m looking forward to…




The Album Leaf‘s A Chorus of Storytellers, My Brightest Diamond‘s Shark Remixes box set, Go from Jónsi Birgisson of Sigur Rós, French singer Jeanne Cherhal‘s Charade, George Hrab‘s Trebuchet, 12 new albums from John Zorn, Mike Patton’s Mondo Cane and hopefully Crudo (if they’re both not put off due to Faith No More reunion touring), Derek Webb‘s Democracy Vol 1 (and he’s even recording with Caedmon’s Call for a 2010 release or two), guitar phenom Kaki King, maybe the Secret Chiefs 3 will finally release Book of Souls (it’s their “Chinese Democracy”), Eisley & Perma (a side project with Sherri from Eisley), Ellery from Cincinnati, Ty Tabor of King’s X, A.N.M. featuring Doug Pinnick of King’s X and Jimi Hazel of 24-7 Spyz, Ken Andrew and Co’s Digital Noise Academy, Trent Reznor’s just announced new Nine Inch Nails album, Silverchair are working on one, Radiohead are hitting the studio (maybe something out by year’s end), and… Ani DiFranco – I mean, it’s inevitable… right?

Plus many more great albums due out in 2010, I’m sure.

OK… wow… great mashup of guitar-phenom Kaki King & gunned down rapper Tupac Shakur:

I’m more a Kaki King fan, but I dig 2Pac on this mashup, too.

Unrelated sidenote: Amoeba Music recently posted the July 2007 in-store performance from Earth (an interview and two songs: Omens and Portents I: The Driver -and- Engine of Ruin).  http://www.amoeba.com/live-shows/videos/earth.html

MBD “Tainted Love” and Streaming Concert

21st Nov 08 (Fri) Leave a comment

Shara Worden (aka My Brightest Diamond) is on a new covers compilation, Guilt By Association Vol 2.  Also on the compilation are Matt Pond PA and Kaki King (two other artists I like).  For the complete tracklist, go here.  MBD’s version of Soft Cell‘s “Tainted Love” is on the compilation, but also available HERE for FREE.  Yes, free as in “free.”

Also, filed under “late to the dance”… MBD’s Seattle Triple Door concert on Wed the 19th was streaming over on Synclive.com.  Well, it’s no longer streaming (except in time-lapse continuum locales), but the entire hour and 58 minutes of Clare & the Reasons (opener) and My Brightest Diamond are archived.  Go here (click the Synclive picture below):

Tonight is MBD in Eugene… so… it’s gonna be an AWESOMELY heels-over-head* DAY!!! I’ll have pics and a review of the show posted by Sunday at the latest…

*– no puppies were harmed in this (I hope)

Kaki King on Daytrotter

8th Jul 08 (Tue) Leave a comment

As you may remember for this blog, I dig Daytrotter. Well, today, there’s a new gem of free music up there… Kaki King – guitar virtuoso. She plays in the style of the late great Michael Hedges or the still alive and kicking Michael Kelsey, she played the guitar-playing double of August in August Rush. See some YouTubes below…

Guitar virtuosity aside, for this Daytrotter Session she does 3 of her more song-y tunes, and 1 instrumental…

4 songs, in studio… FREE downloads. Bad drawing this time, though… eh… :)
