Tunes since the Summer

Too late for Xmas presents, so go out and treat yourself!

In no particular order, here’s what’s been gracing the turntable in the last few months.

  • Calexico – carried to dust 
  • Johnny Otis – the johnny otis show vol.1
  • Jazz at the Philarmonic – (nk cole on piano, les paul, lee young – lester’s bro’ on drums, outrageous!)
  • Victrola Favorites – Artifacts from Bygone Days
  • Art of Field Recording Vol. 1
  • Fleet Foxes – Fleet Foxes (CSNY revisited?)
  • David Byrne & Eno – Everything That Happens Will Happen Today (sophisticated pop music)
  • The Clash – give em’ enough rope (their underestimated masterpiece)
  • Champion Jack Dupree – Blues from the gutter (now this guy had a HARD life)
  • Butter 08 – butter (sometime jon spencer blues explosion, could’ve been the white stripes)
  • Lou Reed – rock n’roll animal (brought dog collars IN)
  • Bill Laswell – dub chamber 3 (NY’s bass/producer extraordinaire delivers)
  • Orchestra Baobob – live in dakar (sublime, joyous)

That’s all for now, support your local record stores, here in Austin get to Waterloo
