  • New free album on WM Recordings: The Hathaway Family Plot

    27. Apr. 2009, 17:51

    Hi everyone,

    New free album download on WM Recordings:

    The Hathaway Family Plot - Wal*Mart-Approved Music
    http://www.wmrecordings.com/releases/wm093.htm

    The Hathaway Family Plot is a musician from Buffalo, New York, whose mission is to make music with whatever is at hand. The Hathaway Family Plot struggles, however futilely, against late-industrial capitalism, consumer culture, and music-as-commodity.

    Inspired by the increasing practice of musicians sponsored by corporations, these 16 tunes are The Hathaway Family Plot's latest attempt to make music that is the anti-commodity: sloppy, unmarketable, and sometimes flagrantly difficult to listen to.

    Also available here on Last.fm of course:

    best wishes,

  • New free album on WM Recordings: brunk - insert coins to continue

    23. Mär. 2009, 20:51

    And now for something completely different... or not?

    Imagine an old industrial building somewhere in a corner of town (let's say, brunkville), turned into a noisy game hall where silly eighties actionmovie characters play pinball and oldschool computer games - loud blipping and beeping (...insert coins to continue...) - everything with an indie kung fu flick air and a very very bad taste in clothes an hair styling... All this has a matching DIY eighties soundtrack filled with dusty hip hop beats, grooving bluesrock and straight forward metal riffs, heroic lo-fi guitar soloing and weird synth sounds - yes, bad taste, but great fun! This should be played at high volume, preferably in a residential area: your neighbours want to enjoy it too! Nevermind mechanical errors, but beware of the revenge of the chickens... And know that violence on tv is only funny for those who are watching it... :-)

    brunk is Bert Vanden Berghe, insert coins to continue is his fourth free WM Recordings release. Enjoy!

    This free album download is avaible from:
    http://www.wmrecordings.com/releases/wm092.htm

    And from Last.fm of course:

  • In hoger sferen met Wayne

    16. Mär. 2009, 15:52

    Sat 14 Mar – Wayne Shorter Quartet

    Gisteravond was het zover: Wayne Shorter live in het Muziekcentrum Frits Philips in Eindhoven. De door Marjolein geregelde vrijkaarten - in ruil voor wat promotie op m'n weblog en een paar andere sites - lagen klaar bij de kassa en na een drankje en een snelle kennismaking met diezelfde Marjolein (we hadden elkaar tot nu toe alleen telefonisch gesproken) kon het feest beginnen.

    Rond 10 voor half 9 kwam Shorter samen met pianist Danilo Perez, bassist John Patitucci en drummer Brian Blade het podium op. Ze begonnen te spelen om letterlijk anderhalf uur later pas weer te stoppen. Geen onderbreking, geen maat rust, niets van dat alles. Anderhalf uur lang één onafgebroken stroom van muzikale energie. Heel erg vrij en toch heel erg gestructureerd. Hier en daar werd een bekend thema aangestipt, maar geen moment werden er voorspelbare schema's of standaard-solo's opgerakeld.

    Voor wie, net als ik, Shorter vooral kent van zijn werk met Miles Davis, zijn klassieke Blue Note-albums en zijn werk met Weather Report was deze muzikale kant behoorlijk verrassend. In positieve zin, welteverstaan.

    Shorter zelf hoefde - of wilde - zich niet meer te bewijzen, en dus waren Patitucci en Blade voor mij de sterren van de avond.
