Robert Wyatt - Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard

Robert Wyatt is very strange person, that's for sure. First time when i heard him, well, it sounded very crazy for me :) And in the same time i was fascinated. It was like cartoon, but most serious cartoon in the world, deeply emotional music.
Don't miss Wyatt in your life :)

Bob Dylan - Time out of Mind

Well, summer is almost over, so I'm back :) And since I'm getting older, I have to say, I am more conservative, it is a natural way, it seems. So, today's post is a classic - Bob Dylan. When we talk about Dylan all we hear is a bunch of annoying platitudes, protest poet, blowin in the wind, '60s ... something like that. And the reality is far from it, Dylan was very much alive in all of our present, in different ways, and it is an insult to put it in such narrow limits.
So, from me to You, Mr. Dylan, the year is 1997, and his timeless album "Time Out of Mind." Thematically, this is a lament about the ghosts of love, with a half-dozen great rock mid-tempo songs, just the way I like

So, if you find yourself in this, or maybe you have love problems, here you go, suffer or enjoy with Dylan, whatever you prefer :P

Royal Trux - Accelerator

It is very strange and beautiful record, in the same time straight rock, alternative too and most of all very noisy. We can say that nature is constantly turn of the road. Well, in that case this is very natural record and if you are not too civilized (and i am not saying this as a disadvantage), Royal Trux is part of your tribe, long-lost brothers, maybe :)

Mark Lanegan Band - Bubblegum

I like this Mark Lanegan album very much. Why? It is typical Lanegan, gloomy, little bit more rock than others. And I like gloomy and i like it when rocks :) There is also one of my favorite singer, P.J. Harvey and his longtime companions from Queens of the Stone Age. And beside that, I like how it sounds.Very primitive sound, muddy, like LP's. Perhaps, I am most attracted with this raw ambient. Lanegan was part of many great music through the years, his talent was obviously recognized. So, there is many chances you already hear this voice. But, if you aren't, here it is..

Lanegan is somewhere on tour right now. So, maybe you can review concert if you like, or give some impression, it will be nice, why not :)

Revolting Cocks - Beers, Steers + Queers [Bonus Tracks]

Well, this is definitely my kind of disco music. Perfect soundtrack for these apocalyptic days of our lives. Dark, psychedelic, aggressive and nihilistic. But, like in real life, nothing is black & white. After all, Jourgenson is very, very funny guy. How i can say something like that? Just play this and you will see :)

Stevie Wonder - Fulfillingness' First Finale

In my salad days i started with heavy metal. Later, i dismiss this genre completely (except Slayer, maybe). I wanted different kind of heaviness, something real. I'll remember Iggy Pop concert, during the nineties, he always had some heavy metal guys for his supporting band. By default they should be dangerous, yes? Motorbikes, tatoos, Satan, leather, etc. They may be dangerous, but old Iggy is nuclear bomb. And during the whole concert, his own band run away from him like rabbits. It was very funny to me. So ..... metal is for girls, not heavy at all :) But, in those metal days i had Stevie Wonder's LP "Talking book" on my wall, from my parents, probably. And, I went in, suspiciously, and discovered a whole new world. From that time i'm into more complex picture and lot of thing is passed through my ears (with very strict criteria, i must say).
And what about today's post? Today's post is simply elegant :)

Mark Stewart - Edit

What a nice piece of music! I always liked raw sounds. Today, music is too pure. This is not natural, man. And, in that case, Mark Stewart is my counterpart, that's for sure. In whole, this is tipical 21st century album, samples, hip - hop beats, little bit reggae. But, from the other side, everything here is wild, dirty, unpredictable, rich in sounds, he doesen't respect rules at all.  So, where is the catch? Well, Stewart knows what he wants and does it very well.

O'Rang - Herd of Instinct

In the beggining, there was pop band. Once, when they discovered that pop form is too narrow for them, they rearrange their minds and recorded a number of ingenious albums. This is a continuation of that story, very exciting and free of rules, great pulsing experience.

Gene Clark - No Other

This is probably one of the best albums I ever heard. By all means. So, try it, just for me :) Naturally, if you are alternative or hard music fan only, you will say this is boring, slow, etc. But i bet that greatest alternative musicians have this in their own collection. Pure music.

Young Gods - T.V. Sky

Powerful and fresh exploration of such anachronistic genre like rock and in the same time tipical Young Gods album. Tipical Young Gods and Rock 'n' roll? Where is connection, you can ask. They are great Swiss band, but they music is more electronic, industrial, not? Well, if you ask question like this, problem is in you. Music has no boundaries. Just play it loud...

John Zorn - The Big Gundown: John Zorn Plays the Music of Ennio Morricone (15th Anniversary Edition)

I always tought about Zorn like one of the greatest. And Morricone? Well, with his significant sound, he is deeply in world's subconscious by now. I watched “Once upon a time in the West” few days ago, that is perfect movie. Leone and Morricone made peace of art, raw model for present art. You can say: "It is classic", but once upon a time it was the universe with its own rules. Just like today's post. Morricone for 21st Century.

Victoria Williams - Loose

This album is so fantastic, words can't help here. Victoria is very strange girl, I can say. By genre, this is Americana, but this is million miles from everything, unique voice in music. Today is the pop time, sweet, nice songs on every corner, even alternative music is pop. It is very boring if you ask me, but I must accept that. Victoria is also Goddess in that context. There are so many beautiful songs on “Loose”. So, if you want drive with her, just jump in car, she is very, very good driver on the way to your new sensibility.

Robert Fripp - Exposure

Finally, I'm back. Time is a mystery and there is so many things where you can spend it, and blogging is not on my top ten list, i must admit :) But, here it is, Robert Fripp, ladies and gentlemen.. This is classic album from Fripp's mind, i think. Everything is here. You like explosion? Sometimes, this is very aggressive record. You like beautiful songs? Fripp also. Do you like King Crimson? Their signature guitar sound is all around, even some ironic lyrics is here (Fripp is Englishman, in the end). So, put headphones and go for a walk. Where, you ask? Well, goal is already with you.

Jon Hassell - City: Works of Fiction

Do you like to travel and explore? Well, this is exact description of today’s post. Mysterious, very dark and strange, this record is traveling ticket straight to the Fourth World. And it is very cheap for what you get, completely new way of looking. Or maybe it’s old way? Because this sound come directly from human subconscious, which is, you must agree, much older from today’s "civilized" way of thinking. Let's go backwards little, future is coming certainly, you will not miss it.

Ry Cooder - Chavez Ravine

What you can say about album which contain roots rock, atmospheric pieces, Latin and Cuban songs, minimal guitar solos, some R&B, maybe, communist and class war themes, UFOs, all this anachronistic genres and ideas in the same pot, glued with modern production. Is there some connection between all this? Yes, all songs are beautiful and you can dance, too  :)

Parliament - Motor Booty Affair

You have a bad day? Or it's too cold, maybe? I have simple solution. Play this album and move your hips, because you are ear to ear with one of all time greatest dance albums. And if  you think this is all, you are terrible wrong. Also, every songs is a hit, but approach to music is highly experimental, production is up to date and the year is 1978, not to mention underwater concept as leitmotif.....Take a breath and go deep...

Iggy Pop - The Idiot

What you can say about Iggy? I always looked him as a natural force, something very primitiv. This album is no different, it’s raw and wild, bunch of middle tempo songs, burst of energy. It really shakes, that's for sure. Try it. But...if you are unstable person, then don't take it, it has some kind of bad reputation. I mean, just look at picture  :)

David Sylvian - Blemish

When I started this blog I didn’t thinking about its nature. Now, spontaneously, everything is clear. It will be expression of my many moods. And what can I say about this album? Do you like pop music? Then don’t listen to it. But, it is one of the best pop album I ever heard…There is no borders here, just open space. Play it loud...
