Four & More!


Yikes, this old blog just turned 4 years old the other day. Thanks to those of you who've stuck around, it's been swell fun. I might do a bit of a celebratory Delishcast next week but for now I've got the very best birthday gift of all - the latest Black Cow record. Four releases in (coincidence? I think NOT) and it's been made even more clear that, for me, it's the best edits label currently in existence. The B-side on this one is an absolute monster... Massive party vibes and some of the most ridiculous bass shredding you'll encounter. Where they find this shit I have no idea, but I'd do anything to move there and dig full time. I am in HEAVEN.

I think now that this 'ere blog is getting older and wiser (nah probs senile) I'd like to make things a bit more broad and cover some of the other sounds in my life of which there are plenty. Ever since hearing Forest Flower by Charles Lloyd when I was 16 I've been so keen to find more psychedelic jazz that reaches those heights. I picked up this Lloyd album 'Geeta' a couple of months ago, which seems like it's been massively overlooked in his discography, and it's such a gem. Such cool instrumentalist credits too: "Charles Lloyd - Soprano Flute, Alto Flute, Tenor Saxophone, Transcending Sonship in Rhythm, Sound & Color." Anyway check out this beautiful journey through classic rock and free jazz, hopefully it might excite a few of youuuuuuuuu

Charles Lloyd - Geeta Suite

One of the things I really hate about digital music is how quickly new tunes get lost in the abyss of a clogged up iTunes. I've been doing some risky all-shuffle action lately hoping to uncover some stuff I've forgotten about and it's been pretty successful. This Dennis Jr. track from early last year is something I'm really stoked to have found again. A brilliant fusion between deep dubbed out electronic dance music and sporadic noodling jazz improvisation. With the late Dennis Otone cutting loose on the alto over a progressive dance backing with a really deep vibe that steadily heads deeper and darker (even flirting with acid at the end!), this is just such an awesome mix of perfectly balanced flavours. Really superb stuff this! And well worth wading through all the shit on my hard drive for.

And just cos it's my party and I'll do whatever the fuck I want thank you very much:

Amadeo - Memories

Thanks again dear friends, got lots and lots of love for you all! xx

Great post, my favorite music blog, looking forward to your "expanded" selections. That Memories song kicks ass.

Worst thing you could do would be "expand" your blog, horrible horrible idea

I also liked Charles Lloyd's rendition of Back Street Girl on the Geeta album. It was a nice counterpoint to Geeta, as it was pretty much a straight play-through, with a little added dancing lilt to it.

I'd be most grateful if you'd rip and post that, too!

Thanks for ALL the great stuff.
