Album du Jour. JIMI HENDRIX BAND OF GYPSIES. Got this years ago at Vicious Sloth in Melbourne. Controversial opinion: the best Hendrix album ever. Great lineup, and this is the tightest rhythm section he had. Also, that deconstructionist solo in "Machine Gun" is my favorite guitar solo ever. I don't always love it when Buddy sings, but he's on point 80% of the time. During the "BLUE" tours, we would cover "Machine Gun". Critical listening. Guitar playing as art. Respect.

Album du Jour: PHILIP GLASS “ Glassworlds – 2: Complete Etudes dos. 1-20” (Nicholas Horvath.)
Posted:

 

I can’t help it, I always jump straight to Etude 5. I know it’s “on trend” to give Philip Glass big-ups; there’s a reason for that. These compositions, played exclusively on piano, are incredible, whether you’ve studied classical in some stuffy institution, or you simply enjoy melodramatic, atmospheric music. “Etude no. 5” is such a crushingly sad song; Lydia Deets would no doubt love writing and trashing suicide while listening. And it’s helped me get into the headspace i require to make art. There are dozens of versions of the etude i’m focusing on, all worth listening to. Put down your grindcore mixtapes for a few minutes and get with it!
