Live at the Plugged Nickel 1965_12_22 (1st set).png

 

Wow! In addition to the sound of the absolutely stellar playing of this quintet, this recording clearly includes such artefacts as the club's cash register, occasionally ringing phone, and outspoken audience, all of which significantly add to the impression of being in a club listening to some truly wonderful music. If you are a Miles Davis fan or lover of jazz music in general and wondering if this collection is worthwhile listen, then my suggestion would none other than the answer to the following: 'Is water wet?'

WA, keep up the great suggestions.  Morcheeba Trigger Hippie is a fantastic song.  I haven't listened to Morcheeba since Sky Edwards left.  I should definitely check to see how they sound nowadays.

 

Even with a digital library filled with hundreds of albums I find myself getting into fixations on say one or two artists for which I'll listen to for weeks on end and then I move on to the next artist.  Right now I primarily listening to Neko Case Live in Austin, TX and RL Burnside's Too Bad Jim.  Not great for numbers but I guess that's the way I've always been so tough habit to break.  A lot of depends on how many enjoyable tracks can be found on a single album.  I can still remember a lot of my lengthy artist listening phases going back to my high school days:  Public Enemy, The Clash, George Benson, Eva Cassidy, Seal, Will Downing, Bob Marley, Hilliard Ensemble, Avishai Cohen, etc.....

post #937 of 1107

Hey, WNBC, Too Bad Jim is a favorite of mine.  Saw RL and Junior Kimbrough do a set many years back - both charismatic dudes, especially RL. 

 

I haven't had much listening time lately, but just got some new tunes that are worthy of mentioning:

 

Kate Bush, 50 Words for Snow (a bit low-key but grows on you)

 

Bonnie Prince Billy, Wolfroy Goes to Town

 

Stephen Stills, Stills Alone

 

My good friend just shared a bit of electronica that sort of defies classification, at least to me.  I'm typically not that fond of electronica for its lack of texture, but he's been demonstrating a few exceptions that make me realize I don't know the genre that well.  Of the stuff that grabbed me, two stand out:

 

Robert Lippok, Redsuperstructure

 

Idiosynkrasia, Francesco Tristano Schlimé

 

Still on long-time frequent rotation for me:

 

King Creosote and John Hopkins, Diamond Mine

 

Civil Wars, Barton Hollow

Hi guys - 

 

Just wondering - when you listen to music/audio with your LCD-2 rig, what is your preferred way of listening to audio for maximum enjoyment i.e. listening with your eyes closed; listening with your eyes open; listening whilst looking at CD artwork; listening to specific details; listening to the whole picture of the music; listening with intent to enjoy; listening for no reason... etc.

I'd find it interesting to see your take on this. These days, I often listen with the LCD-2 when video editing and honing in on specific musical elements when working something out to teach or for personal learning. And there's also casual listening to albums, often in tandem when browsing some web pages. :-)

I never thought of looking at artwork (CD or otherwise).  Could be an interesting way to hear music -- get you in a creative mode.  For me, mostly in low light or closed eyes.  Regular desk chair.  Could use a good lounge chair.  I'm bad with lyrics, I listen mostly for the instruments and maybe the uniqueness of vocal textures.  I find myself evaluating the tubes in my Lyr a lot so I'm fixated on detail and soundstage.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, WNBC. Since acquiring the best head-fi I have heard (the LCD-2/Lavry DA10) I've not been listening to the sound of my rig as much, and have recently been listening to audio more. I've always found lyrics interesting, and I find that reading them on their own also adds an additional emotive dimension to the music I'm checking out.

I so rarely listen with headphones at all, quite honestly.  I can't remember the last time I used my headphone rig. The last time I listened to cans was at RMAF/CanJam.  Ironic to say in the context of this forum - If I can avoid using headphones I will as I really don't like listening to music that way unless I have to.  Mostly listen with headphones while doing work on the computer - editing photographs, graphic design or photographic manipulation, and only if my wife is in need of quiet.  Almost never with eyes closed.  Listen to portable rig when working on repetitive work which I occasionally do (taking pictures of the same thing over and over for instance). If I'm just listening for listenings sake I find headphones almost unbearable in their isolation.  It's like floating in one of those isolation tanks in warm salt water in the dark.  I can't stand it.  I understand that others enjoy that, but I just don't.  I prefer to be free to move as I please, and to experience music wash over me and fill a space.  There I can sit and take it in much more readily than with cans on my head.  With cans I get caught up in micro details and analyzing things of little consequence and I really really hate that because it's not what I enjoy about music, or any art form for that matter.  With speakers I am far more readily swept away by the music and emotions it may bring up.  Those details are all there, in spades sometimes, but they just don't occur to me quite the same way.  I find that a bit difficult to understand or explain actually.

 

A few more music suggestions of recent note:

 

Jolie Holland + The Grand Chandeliers, Pint of Blood

 

Antony and the Johnsons, Swanlights EP

 

Listening to Kate Bush and her piano wash over me as I write this...

Thanks for the above reply, Jax - interesting to hear how different brothers and sisters experience the joys of music.

 

And back OnT with this thread - some regularly recurring albums in my playlist recently, for the past few months and the best part of a few years, are these:

I love doing this. Especially with vinyl. Concerning the lounge chair I used to have a fantastic recliner before I moved and it couldn't come with me. I need to get a new listening chair.

I've tried to do this but just can't seem to do it for too long. The only thing I've really been able to do this with is BT's These Humble Machines.

Oh, and to actually answer the question I usually listen while at my desk. Whether it's muting the game I'm playing and just listening, putting background music of my own into the game, browsing, being artsy, etc. My mind is very...multi-task friendly. 

 

Something that I've been wanting to do lately though is to just sit and try and draw what the music is making me think about. I'm a terrible visual artist, but I still want to give it a shot.
