I went through a major stoner rock phase and found Boris through the Southern Lord label a few years ago. I guess it was the now defunct stonerrock.com website that introduced me to Neurosis, Isis the varous "post-...." genres. Neurosis lead me to Swans who I finally investigated after the hoopla of last year's Seer-and they are a current obsession for me. Funny how one stream leads to another.

 

On the jazz side, I also enjoy Krall and Miles Davis, Dave Brubek and a few others. Your jazz selections might make a good jumping point for me.

I discovered Boris through Rate Your Music. A lot of people seemed to value Feedbacker very highly, so I decided to give it a try and it was a truly life-altering experience. It is without question one of my favorite ten albums of all time. I was only able to acquire Flood on CD earlier this year. In the past I've only seen it available for a really salty price online but when I noticed Amazon selling a copy for just over twenty bucks I didn't think twice about placing an order. It is somewhat similar to Feedbacker in that it is a single album-length song split into four quite distinct sections. It isn't necessarily as appealing as Feedbacker to everyone, but seriously good nonetheless and damn near a masterpiece if not one.

 

Some of the jazz stuff on my list is quite avant-garde and even free jazz, so beware of that if you don't want to jump straight into the deep end of jazz. That being said, if you are able to listen to Coltrane's Ascension and say you genuinely liked it, I tip my hat to you sir.

I agree with you when you say Oceanic is the most rewarding to listen to. I love the album and can listen to it nonstop sometimes.

 

I will have to do a rain check on those Coltrane albums as soon as possible. I really love his work and his live performances are truly much more engaging and enriching as his studio presentations. Speaking of which.. here is a video of a live performance of his My Favorite Things with Eric Dolphy on flute.

My Favorite Things - John Coltrane (Click to show)

I've just realized I don't have any Arvo Part in my collection at all, so I will definitely have to make that a priority. :eek:


I couldn't agree with you more. It's really avant-garde, in a sense, of John to craft with such an eclectic approach when composing music. Like you, I also need to hear more of his work. Especially his earlier work as it would be nice to see how much he has grown as an artist.


I must compliment and give my thanks on posting such wonderful music (once again). I've been listening to this non-stop since finding this and it really is just wonderful. I love ambient music and recently have grown a massive appreciation for it. It can help soothe one's mind after a long day.:) 

Very nice vid. Thanks. Eric Dolphy was such a talented musician. It is truly a shame he died so young.

 


 

I've been quite busy today and haven't had all that much time to devote to listening to music, but these are two songs I discovered today and have enjoyed. Both are also available as free downloads on SoundCloud.

I promised Randy Newman post . I wish I had the time to do it properly, in my own words. Will have to wait till I have the proper time to devote to the man I simply adore. But this documentary about him gives a pretty good idea what Randy Newman stands for : multitude of points of view, and morever multitude of feelings it is hard to fathom are coming from a single person. You either love him - or hate him; lukewarm and Randy Newman somehow do not fit in the same sentence:

Sounds soooo sweet on the modded Q701. Interesting recording style with quite a bit of low end rumble, and with what sounds like an actual drum kit, not just triggered drum sounds.

Feedbacker is really cool...challenging and beautiful I need to listen to it again. Long slow build.

 

But prior to their more recent output like Pink and Smile (I have not hard New Aslbum) they seemed to jell their various sounds in a more streamlined way for American audiences.....punk-acid rock freak outs-beautiful post metal...long doomier passages...fuzzy stoner rock-it's all kid of out there.

 

Which is why I really like Amplyfier Worship. It's a bit more committed to one aesthetic. Sludgy doom with  psychedelic  portions. It requires some opnen minded listening, but I find if very rewarding. Special album.

I dunno. Amplifer Worship is easy to get into. Absolutego is the real ordeal. It has to be a certain weekend, I have to have my tea heated up just right, otherwise very difficult to fully appreciate.

 

I know people don't really go for Solomon or Dronevil, but I think I've grown up with Boris in a way where I accept everything as they pump it out. Bummed that they've never done a full-on drone session in-concert in town (I remember a lot of Pink tracks last last fall), or least I've never caught one in town. My friend caught the one down near Seattle where they played Flood, boy I wish I could have caught that.

 

Anyways Boris is probably the only band where I do happen to religiously collect all their LPs.
