Jim O'Rourke - Eureka

I'm not so sure about this album's reputation today, somehow i lost connection with people with whom i listened this, nor have I run into it outside of my world a long time........but, i'm sitting here, day was fast, i'm pretty tired and last song is just finished. And you know what? Even through today's fog, it's status is very clear to me...
Beyond all categories and very seductive   :)

John Stevens Away - Mutual Benefit

Monotonous travelling, from point A to point B, for me is something totally different, possibility to research endless variations. And if we blend music into that moving (we all have mini computers with us ) things get really nadreal, and this momentaly soundtrack directly have impact on reality and when you get there where you are going, you ask yourself: " How did i arrive here? " :)
And one of my favorite "teleport" soundtrack last few years was this, John Stevens "Mutual Benefit"  :)

Year : 1980                                                                                               Ex - Yu version

The Lijadu Sisters - Danger

When i was younger, i often listened to Fela Kuti, floating in his heavy and psychedelic kind of resistance, which moved me then and also years later, on different ways..
Later, unrelated to Kuti, i found a fantastic band, The Raincoats, and this was maybe the best all - girls band i ever heard. Their completely different four albums and fantastic imagination once again changed my already formed opinion what alternative music is.
And then, why today's post? What's connection between this two sisters with whole story? Well, with Kuti, they share same time and same geography - Nigeria. Also, i'm very interested in woman's perception of one obviously very "interesting" state like a NIgeria. And specifically, they deserved place here because, like i said before, best woman's band ever, have stolen a few things exactly from them  :)

Moondog - Moondog [Prestige]

Spring has arrived bringing with itself a host of impressions, new energy and a torrent of life ... Should we add something to all this? There is no need ...
But still, if the rain falls at least a half hour, or you are forced to spend that time in an enclosed space, you have enough time to listen to this great album, and at the same time, without disturbing rhythm of spring, you can continue collecting of impressions  :P

Robert Plant & The Strange Sensation - Mighty ReArranger

Robert Plant, regardless of the demands of the time, the market and the development of production, during his long career managed something very difficult. The result of his work has always been authentic, and at the same time he respected all of the above requirements ....
Such an attitude toward work, at least for me, deserves a lot of respect in the first place, because those who have managed to achieve his whole career without any qualitative downs, there are very few. Most of losing at least a decade, failing to cope with the demands of time ... The only person I can think of, who did it successfully, is Martin Scorsese, although he's from the world of movies ...

After all, keeping in mind that Plant is sixty years old, just listen to how this album sounds. Modern, very adventurous and very strong :)
