2011, I think?

Not from their most recent release

Yep, that US Girls is from 2011, she's been working with that classic spector/girl-group thing since about 2008 (and she did a killer live set on my show then). another track from the Kraak CD comin right up

I think Bas meant the Sugai Ken which appears to have been released 2 1/2 weeks ago

Ah, yes, i meant Sugai Ken. Very nice that. But indeed i could hear some modern digital tweaks in it.. Thanks Steveo.

I remember the shock the first time I saw him, conducting his 8th symphony. The whole theater was shaking, a physical experience.
I'm surprised to learn he was older that Rhys Chatham
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 4:52pm Parq:

Really like this Kane track, and a very fitting follow up to the Branca track and the sad news of his death. Another man done gone.

Hi Scott and Scotians. Neneh Cherry "Dream Baby Dream" - PRE-Starred!!!

Loving this version of "Dream".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 5:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Did Bruce S. ever perform this? I know he was a fan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 5:11pm northguineahills:

Yes, Matt, Look it up on Youtube or whereever, it's actually pretty amazing....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 5:11pm Matt from Springfield:

YES! "and by Bruce Springsteen both live and in a studio version released on High Hopes (2014). Springsteen's live version was released as a single."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 5:11pm Parq:

Matt, I'm pretty sure I've heard his version, but I don't know the details. Might have been a boot of a live show for all I know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 5:11pm Parq:

Oh man, that was just great! Is Neneh Cherry the coolest?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 5:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks NGH, I'd like to check the live version, I bet that would be amazing!
(Years ago on his box set, there's also a great live version of "Because The Night", co-written and shared with fellow Jerseyian Patti Smith).

OMG...I kept thinking of Madam George when Dream Baby Dream was playing because it has that same repeating 1-4-5 chord progression

nice! hello.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 5:14pm Matt from Springfield:

Might as well give one to Nov '68 :)
(White Album, Astral Weeks, Switched-On Bach, possibly the best single month in one of the best single years for album releases)

@woah: "converges", good word!!

Me and Scott think alike
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 5:15pm Matt from Springfield:

@Tommy: There are NO coincidences!
Better to be subtle than obvious, I say :)

Nice set of meandering pieces going here.

Every singer should listed to Madam George ...a lot. It's a lesson on how many different ways you can take a line

@Matt from Springfield: i have the Swithced-On Bach record from my dad's collection - didn't realize it was such a hit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 5:22pm Matt from Springfield:

His earlier recording on the T.B. Sheets sessions album, was more of a soul number with female chorus. Yet another varities of ways to deliver the same lines.

@Rob: Mos def! Earliest of Moog releases, heralded a whole new era in music production! Glad your family were fans from day one! My Dad also had the Walter (Wendy) Carlos soundtrack LP for A Clockwork Orange. The quintessentials in electronic Classic music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 5:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Hmmm, that was somewhat Pythonesque.

Maybe Bonzo-esque??
Not American enough to be Firesign-esque.

Hello Anita, ditto here - he's had a very long career, but that period at least I love as well.

@Rob: Dislike of sounds?? Or are you hearing miso soup??...

But Rob! I was just about to eat a banana with a contact mic!

@Scott: Slow down the speed of that, and shift the pitch higher! Run it for 21 minutes on a vinyl side!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 5:31pm Scott Williams:

Years ago, I asked listeners to send me recordings of them eating. They did. I regretted it.

Circular hooks! Bass converges! Synchronicity!

I love it. It is the sacred duty of DJs to notice these things, and sequence them together for our amazement and enjoyment! :)

Likewise, I'm enjoying whatever this instrumental bed is! :D

Matt, right, can never get enough Van!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/14/18 5:39pm Matt from Springfield:

@Anita: Saint Dominic's Preview, also very amazing! His earlier pop record with Bang, "Blowin' Your Mind" is different, but I love it, esp. the non-hit catalogue tracks like "Spanish Rose".
