Performed and recorded over three nights in front of a sold-out crowd at The World Famous Theater in Harlem, NY December 4th — 6th,this album brings the electrifying performances that helped put Daptone on the map directly to your living room! This album is lovingly dedicated to the memory of our dear friends Sharon, Charles, Naomi, and Cliff. Listen and decide for yourselves. And yet another week of late shipments…. Ecstatic, West Mineral, etc. The Russian producer Vladimir Karpov is well on his way towards a lasting legacy as a modern synthesizer wizard in the grandiose vein of Vangelis and Jarre.
With a propensity for concept albums he has built a sturdy discography during this past decade that echoes the progressive ideas of the psychedelic generation as it moved into adulthood with Moog in hand.
While the esoteric fantasies of previous works linger on, the conceptual aspect of Anciente is rendered more abstract. And instead of dividing ideas into tracks that form an album, here Karpov is pushing the boundaries of his compositions further into longer forms.
Like trails into humid forest landscapes, they run deep enough for one to get lost along the way. Clocking in at a neat 20 minutes per side, the two tracks that make up Anciente weaves soft brushes of undefinable sounds and tropical field recordings that almost create ASMR-inducing vibrations in the minds of the listener.
Eventually they might open a doorway to a twilight-lit wilderness and the possible secrets of the first civilised men. Or, as in this case, the door to the ancient. The results ponder an impressionistic, romantically ambiguous simulacra of reel life worries and anxiety, feeling at once dense and impending yet without centre.

Using analog and digital equipment, he transforms the melancholic simplicity of his melodies into a quietly dreamlike space. Taylor and her bandmates — guitarist Dec Martens, bassist Gus Romer, and drummer Bryce Wilson — wrote Comfort To Me during the pandemic while quarantining in the same house together, spending more time refining the songs than they had previously.
The amount of time and thought I put into the lyrics for this album is completely different from the EPs, and even the first record. Half of the lyrics were written during the Australian bushfire season, when we were already wearing masks to protect ourselves from the smoke in the air. And then when the pandemic hit, our options were the same as everyone: go find a day job and work in intense conditions or sit at home and drown in introspection. I fell into the latter category.
My brain evolved and warped and my way of thinking about the world completely changed. I was like an egg going into boiling water when this started, gooey and weak but with a hard surface. I came out even harder. Walter Bishop Jr. Keyboardist Walter Bishop, Jr. But a mere two years later, Bishop, Jr. All in remastered sound with liner notes by Pat Thomas. First-ever vinyl reissue of a long-lost classic, also available in an orange with black swirl vinyl edition limited to copies and exclusive to independent record stores!
Oscillating piquant shocks of vibrant energy with steeply opiated hypnagogia and OOBE-like sensations, the results locate a mind in flux, torn between the need to flex hyper-articulated limbs and becoming lost in discretely introspective ambient interzones.

Though the singer had retired his billion streaming Chet Faker project four years prior, the new songs he was working on in his New York City studio had an energy reminiscent of his earlier work.
The result is Hotel Surrender, a radiant track LP full of swaggering bass lines and electrifying melodies that reintroduces Chet Faker to the world — and to Murphy himself.
He admits that before Hotel Surrender, he had never approached his process with such ease. This time, as the album title suggests, he surrendered to the music. I was also just being kind to myself. None of this music was hurting, it just felt good. It made me feel better, and it helped me be better. Recorded and slated for an early release, and paused while COVID raged, this collaboration of masked men is finally finding its way to you on all formats.
Its seven parts balance a sense of febrile passion with hyper-disciplined logic in more explicitly emotive, optimistic gestures that emerge from its atonal murk and convulsive structures. Needle down, candles on. In the early s, while the music industry was grappling with the arrival of new trends and technology, from MTV to compact discs to digital recording, Bob Dylan was writing and recording new songs for a new decade, creating an essential new chapter in his studio catalog.
They are included here to illustrate the musical journey Bob Dylan undertook Ill Find My Way Home - Jon And Vangelis* - The Best Of Jon And Vangelis (CD) these years. The songs. The songs stripped free of trappings, tampering, passing tastes, and judgements. The songs broken down to the sound of people really doing this, right now, acting on instinct.
