Got a ton of stuff recently:
Image
Daughter of John Hiatt, we saw her open for her dad a few years back, and got her autograph on a CD. She was really good. This is an older record of hers
Image
This is the new album that's getting a ton of buzz.
Image
Image

Going to see Gary Numan in December, so I picked up his new Cd Savage Songs From a Broken World.

And Finally
Image

This beautiful box set is in a HUGE handmade wooden box, with the album art printed onto it. Inside is the new first release from Jon Langford's Four Lost Souls. I got the deluxe box, limited to a signed edition of 100, with the box, the LP on splatter vinyl (limited to 500 total), a poster, a newsprint type large insert, the CD, a download code, and why I bought it, each one has an original drawing by Langford inserted.

I'd been pretty shitty about buying music in recent years, leaning on piracy even for smaller bands when previously I always made it a point to buy their work.

Finally signing up at BandCamp (and a good deal of guilt) changed that. I've been making a point of purchasing some albums from smaller artists who've had a big impact on me and my music. Some purchases from the last few days:

Image

Roy Montgomery - R M H Q Headuarters

Montgomery was an influential member of the New Zealand experimental music scene for a while. Solo works like Temple IV, which is a collection of meditative exploratory guitar pieces, have been a major part of my listening for many years now. He had disappeared from music for a long while. I thought he was done, then lo and behold, I found that he put this out a year or two ago. It's a quadruple album of experimental guitar work. So excited to listen to the 3+ hours of music here!

Image

Windy & Carl - Blues for a UFO

Windy & Carl are a Michigan-based husband and wife duo who do utterly beautiful, expansive sonic dreamscapes, usually made up of nothing more than meandering, droning guitar and wandering bass. Anyone who has listened to my m2 stuff knows this is right up my alley. This record was released for charity, so I paid a bit extra for it. Love their stuff.

Image

Bardo Pond - Volume 8

The amazing kings of stoner sludge drone rock out of Philadelphia. I first discovered them all the way back in 1995. They put on a potent live show. They're also crazy prolific. Between Bardo Pond and a whole array of side projects that are usually just the band minus a member or something, they've released somewhere in the neighborhood of 65 to 70 albums and EPs in that time -- and unlike Guided By Voices, they are consistently good. Volume 8 is part of a series of self-released records documenting improvisational recording sessions. It's big, huge, druggy, and totally awesome. There really is no band like them. They're probably top 5 for me.

The fact that half their album titles are drug references (Amanita, Bufo Alvarious, Set and Setting, etc.), and their side projects include a band called Hash Jar Tempo, speaks volumes!

Good stuff there, JC! Aside from all the awesome soul on your list, that Sound City soundtrack is pretty damn good!

Thanks, unless it's new releases by an artist or band that I already know, I've almost given up on new music and have gone backwards looking for stuff I may have missed or more from someone I might not have delved deeply into.

That one sounds like it would be a good idea. Like on paper. But the psychedelic approach doesn't fit.

If you're looking for good album-length, late-period Muddy Waters, go for Hard Again.

It's actually pretty good, but I'll check out the other one also.

To each his own. Just sounds unnatural to me. Hope you like the other one.

It isn't what you would expect from a Muddy Waters album but I thought it was interesting.

I'm currently locked down to hit up Pitchfork Fest in Chicago this summer to see This Heat and Chaka's not playing the day I'm going. :down:

She's every woman, you know.
