Darker Days ahead, moving Wirds, flying Burritos, the Sun, the Sun, rising and hiding behind closed doors. Perception tries to escape but love is stronger. always stronger and growing. bright light on fright night. halloween. hollyweird. it was the sailor himself who brought it up, the sailoer himself who tasted the taste of waste and junk, loss and fear. no none was left to do the job, so he started a new business and moved forward. still the sun was hiding behind closed doors, but this time it was real.
You wouldn´t expect a Band of Gypsies alongside an American Singer from Tucson, Arizona, would you? Well, sometimes
this Kind of strange Collaboration works out pretty fine, sometimes it fails, and sometimes it works perfect! Wich definately is the case here.
A brilliant Album with a very unique Sound that catches you very soon. Howe Gelb has released about 50 (!) Albums since 1985, alone and with several Sideprojects, for Example the well known Band Giant Sand.
All Albums are released on Owom Records. About his Music-Philosophy he says:
'I just liked the idea of having this kind of removed world, this brotherhood—the idea of a band being something more than a front person or dealing with the throes of fame."
His Voice and singing sounds often like a "Talkin-Blues" and reminds me a little bit on Lou Reed ...
ADRIAN YOUNGE AND THE THE BLACK DYNAMITE ORCHESTRA
Adrian Younge started as Hip-Hop Producer in the late 90´s. But the MPC alone wasn´t enough,so he taught himself to playin various instruments and learned to translate the melodies of his mind into the instruments. His Music is influenced by Italian Composers like Nino Nardini, Ennio Morricone, to name a few, and the Producers of the golden era of blaxploitation soundtracks, like Don Julian, Nico Fidenco, Lalo Schifrin...and so on. It has a psychedelic groove, for Example listen to "1969 Organ" wich sounds a bit like a lo-fi garage band track or early tracks of the doors. He still works as movie-editor and says that he has "Movies" in Mind while producing. Being an editor myself, i understand what he is talking about. Images are always strongly related to sounds. Psychedelic-Blaxploitation-Beats.
Check this out! Project Mooncicle has released another great, great Record! The Man with the "long arm" is a producer from Russia. Highly Jazz influenced Break-Beats. Kind of Old School, but with a very modern, deep and soulful song-architechture. i love it! enjoy and support the Musician and the Label below.
