Outlaw Drag - The Boss Martians [from 13 Evil Tales]

scholars of the sound the Puget Sound sound
reverb just so - check!
Hammond B3 - check!
all done up in 90's sound drag
an original instrument craze outside of ancient music fandom

Malevolent - Chris DeLaurenti [from Sonicabal 2001]

invisible thread narrative

Oboe di Morte - Brad Anderson [from Dark Energy - Interstellar Pianos]

the uninflected plainness of the oboe tune not unsubtly played by subtly laid out flat
behind it a roar not unlike wind noise
whatever it is it is coming nearer
how many oboes are there!! AAIEEEEEEEE!!!!

Assembly Rechoired 53 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey [April 2011]

Rejiggerment after removal of the Mighty Wurgelitzer (sic)
drums first start with the throne
vacuum made of motor
quietly in the background a lovely capture of airplane
air in tube
engines winding their sounds around each other
or the differential arrival and warp through air mass the echo field
arrayed a raid
setting up the electric keyboard stand
plug it in
makes noise!
an assembly required assembly rechoired

High Goodbye - Strange Like Us [from Strange Peeps]

art school rock, but in the best possible way
in that the vocals are never straight sung but used to cause a mic effect
to cause a certain sound

The Second Grownde - William Byrd - Elizabeth Farr [from My Ladye Nevells Booke]

O the joy of figuration!
a pleasurable hand twiddly activity
a pleasurable texture in the earbrain
as though fingers touched with tunes dance playfully
love the little cadenza tag

Brotherly Love - Elgar's Creole Orchestra [from Alan Lowe's That Devilin' Tune]

slapstick soundtrack showtune

Please Please Please - James Brown [collected from Dave Marsh's The Heart of Rock & Soul]

invested in every repetition
low in his blues town register

Waltz for Debby (take 2) - Bill Evans Trio [from Waltz for Debby]

laid back for where it gets to

(I Know) I'm Losing You - The Temptations [collected from Dave Marsh's The Heart of Rock & Soul]

Othello post Iago
studio fade quick out

April 3, 2018
Unlabeled Track 7 - Tillicum Junior High School Band - Bob Runyan [from my mom's tape archive]

more jazz band - what is it about the transfer trajectory that so booms the bass?

Jamboree - Walt Wagner [from Caprice]

fast playing to no end at all

Adult Books - X [from Wild Gift]

X as Talking Heads if Talking Heads were X

Banned Rehearsal 73 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Anna K, Neal Kosály-Meyer, Wally Shoup [April 1986]

It has been a full couple of weeks in our family, which is why I missed blogging last Saturday. I got through 20 minutes of the wrong cut before I realized my error.

start over this time with Wally
history lesson
announcer voice
as though the face of what is announced is in a universe with the what of what is announced

lumpy and clogged
exploring what does not flow
musicology of stagnation

mirror battle
insectoid exoskeletal
hive-y drone
seething mass
no let up
forever scribbling sound
until it does

a brief cliché

discourse on polypulse

this was elsewhere
the ice storm the night Wally Shoup was in Barrytown
forgotten factoid recalled!

caw caw caw caw caw
where it goes after energy dissipates
loose mooring loose moorals

use fresh water
bring to a furious boil

Whirlpool - The Young Fresh Fellows [from Electric Bird Digest]

of whom?
friend done gone lost?
outside inside

(a solid grown-up song, if you're interested in my opinion)

In Session at the Tintinabulary

Banned Rehearsal 955 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Steve Kennedy, Neal Kosály-Meyer
