dfbm #108 - Songs of Wild Nothing Pt. 13

Permalink - Posted on 2020-06-19 08:14

Things changed since the last Songs for Wild Nothing mixtape. We have to believe that everything has to go worse before it gets better. I don't know if that is true. What I know is true, that music is beautiful and hopefully helps to get through bad times. But we have to take care of the musicians, else there is not even music left, only spotify playlists with AI generated audio.1 TL;DR Dust-to-Digital, if they don't make superb records, they post little bits and pices of historic, music related

Toby Hay - Morning/Evening Ragas

Permalink - Posted on 2020-06-18 17:41

End of March, when most of the world was under a more or less strict lockdown due to the still ongoing pandemic, Welsh guitarist Toby Hay produced a mini-music-series on Youtube. Equipped with a stringed instrument of his choice and some recording equipment, Hay got out early in the morning or later in the day, to celebrate the moment with an improvised piece of music. Recording one a day, and uploading one a day. They are all one take performances, the sun doesn't get a second take. [ytp:89

Toby Hay & David Ian Roberts - CAPEL Y GRAIG - Improvisations

Permalink - Posted on 2020-05-01 18:50

A wonderful live performance at Capel Y Graig, Ffwrnais/Furnace, Ceredigion by Toby Hay & David Ian Roberts. The three improvisational pieces unfold beautifully in the room of the former chapel and now art space Capel Y Graig. It is an extraordinary space to play music. The building has a life of its own. One of the most unusual, and powerful natural reverbs I have ever heard. Listening to these recordings now makes me smile. It reminds me how important it is to play music with friends. All th

Jesse Sheppard - Unknowing

Permalink - Posted on 2020-05-01 17:26

Jesse Sheppard is the acoustic 12-string part of the American psych-folk jam duo Elkhorn and the Alan Lomax of today's American primitive scene. He's responsible for the Glenn Jones and Jack Rose DVD The Way it Used to Be and all the HD videos of your favorite guitar slinger on youtube. He also was one of the giants who shouldered the fantastic The Thousand Incarnations of the Rose festival in Takoma Park, two long years ago. With Unknowing Sheppard released a 4 track debut ep with collaboration

Cruel Willie - wistful lullabies/electric fantasy

Permalink - Posted on 2020-05-01 14:54

Cruel Willie is the alter ego of Andy McLeod from Fredericksburg, VA, a name you might have seen on this site before. On wistful lullabies/electric fantasy, McLeod flips through his record collection and pulls out early Fahey albums with rags and blues and waltzes and a handful of cassettes out of the 2010 blogosphere. It's weird to say it, because McLeod has such a great understand of old time tunes and is such a masterful player, but his bedroom psych endeavour is standing out on this release.

Elijah McLaughlin Ensemble - s/t (2020)

Permalink - Posted on 2020-04-23 17:37

Out of the Windy City of Chicago, comes this fantastic debut by the Elijah McLaughlin Ensemble. A modern day avant-garde string band consisting of guitar, bass and hammered dulcimer. The hammered dulcimer exists in almost every folk music tradition around the globe. My connection to the instrument are Czech fairy tale movies from the 70s and maybe Bavarian folk music, that I know exists, but never dug deeper into it. Hearing that instrument played along with the upright bass and the acoustic gui

dfbm #107 - Songs of Wild Nothing Pt. 12

Permalink - Posted on 2020-02-10 16:33

For nr. 12 of the Songs for Wild Nothing series I compiled some really sweet tracks from the last 40 or so years of mostly self-releasing singer-songwriters. TL;DR Starting off with Lucky Luke, a Scottish psych-folk-rock collective from the mid 2000. Back then I downloaded a 7" from some obscure music blog and was always wondering if there was more of Lucky Luke, but I either forgot to seek it out or ended up with the comic character. But at the end I was able to get my hand on their whole dis

dfbm #106 - Morning Raga Pt. 21

Permalink - Posted on 2020-02-08 21:27

Let's start 2020 with a round-up of another two hours of American primitive/solo acoustic guitar gems that I accumulated over the last months. TL;DR I couldn't help but start with Jakub Šimanský and a track from his second installment of Face to Face Against American Primitivism in Eastern Europe vol. 2. He's just getting better and better and a follow up to Tance neznámé with Tomáš Niesner is already in the making - If you want to find out some more about these two Czech guitar masters, c

Jakub Šimanský - Face to Face Against American Primitivism in Eastern Europe vol. 2

Permalink - Posted on 2019-11-12 08:10

A new album of homerecordings by Czech fingerstyle guitarist Jakub Šimanský is finally available online after a CD only release via the Czech Full Moon Forum magazine . In this new wave (already post Daniel Bachman) of American primitive guitarists, Šimanský is one of my favorites. He's true to the Takoma school and delievers the old-school blues and American ragas like every other guitarist that you already love. Šimanský just adds his Eastern European view to it and that you can hear rig
