Gian The Digger - 1/26/13

second edition of my 10-part 'gian the digger' digging series.
1 (Anthony Braxton's) Circle

Corea's ensemble seamlessly alternates between freeform jazz composition motifs and free-improvisation ones (easily heard on the III quartet pieces), this gives the album a very avant-garde appeal. Clocking at 74 minutes with numerous polyrhythms, abstract musique-concrete[esque] percussion, & an incredible array of violent solos; Circulus simply is majestically colossal.

An astonishingly overlooked post-punk gem from Norway. Kjott shines with a 10000 watts lightbulb-- All thanks to their beautiful arrangements that show similarities to those of classic punk bands in atmosphere but that remain completely original in delivery. T's a fun record really worth checking out, THE FLUTES MAN - THE FLUTES.

take a look at this tracklist: 7-Methoxy-?-Carboline: (Telepathine) 2,5-Dimethoxy-4-Ethyl-Amphetamine: (DOET/Hecate) 5-Methoxy-N,N-Dimethyl: (5-MeO-DMT) 4-Indolol,3-[2-(Dimethylamino)Ethyl], Phosphate Ester: (Psilocybin) ^^^^^^that's how much it fucking rules.

kinda-excellent but not so excellent more like-great slowcore :::::::enjoyable listen.
Muse In Arms

'Deutsches Volk! In diesem Augenblick vollzieht sich ein Aufmarsch, der in Ausdehnung und Umfang der gr??te ist, den die Welt bisher gesehen hat. Im Verein mit finnischen Kameraden stehen die K?mpfer des Siegers von Narvik am N?rdlichen Eismeer. Deutsche Divisionen unter dem Befehl des Eroberers von Norwegen sch?tzen gemeinsam mit den finnischen Freiheitshelden unter ihrem Marschall den finnischen Boden. Von Ostpreu?en bis zu den Karpaten reichen die Formationen der deutschen Ostfront. An den Ufern des Pruth, am Unterlauf der Donau bis zu den Gestaden des Schwarzen Meeres vereinen sich unter dem Staatschef Antonescu deutsche und rum?nische Soldaten.' oka, martial industrial. Die Aufgabe dieser Front ist daher nicht mehr der Schutz einzelner L?nder, sondern die Sicherung Europas und damit die Rettung aller. Ich habe mich deshalb heute entschlossen, das Schicksal und die Zukunft des Deutschen Reiches und unseres Volkes wieder in die Hand unserer Soldaten zu legen. M?ge uns der Herrgott gerade in diesem Kampfe helfen!
6Archaeopteryx Ultraavantgarda
Vol. 1

This is like the best thing ever that nobody listened to in 2012. Such a shame. It's supposed to be neo-krautrock but the music has such a distinct, idiosyncratic flavor to it. Take the german movement, run it on a melancholy industrial field, add to it some rock in opposition, see what happened? I saw it and it's called Archaeopteryx Ultraavantgarda.
7Weed Thief

Cool stuff, nothing peculiar or experimentally impressive to be found here -however, there's this really stoned feel to tha tape. why? well, it for the most part amalgamates gravity bonging with power violencing hardcore bondage, which means you should check it out, blaze it. rB-|6.5/10| G.K. never disappoints me, gnarly bitches.
The Egg

a forgotten experimental death metal jewel, for fans of obscura or french pals Supuration.

this is what happens when you take a power electronic 8-bit remix and loop it to no end.

Chileans playing some of the most chilling math-rock jams ever. like a wayfarer in a journey through jazzy deserts & manifold time signatures; certainly awesome [yet] intrinsically complex music. cool stuff to say that they managed to add a bit of post-rock sauce in there without spoiling the shit out of it.
11Robbie Basho
The Seal of the blue lotus

Basho's debut, along with Fahey's 'transfiguration of blind joe 'a landmark in american primitivism music.
12 Charlie Rouse
Bossa Nova Bacchnal

not the best bossa-jazz I've heard but been digging it a lot lately. for fans of latin jazz, especially.
Paradise in the Abyss (demo tape)

polish death metal tape, really doomy and primitive-sounding, makes me think of rippikoulu's demo having sexual intercourse with an italian death/doomy band like maelstrom (who are also underrated, btw.)
14Susan Christie
Paint a Lady

breathtaking psychedelic folk from 69', definitely worth hearing if you like vashti & company. kinda sad.... sad... sad...
15Theodor Bastard

They started playing industrial noise but something weird happened along the way and they turned into a world music / trip-hop hybrid. Fantastic album, probably their best to date. Oikumene = 100% gypsy swag stamp approval whatev. [: i guess.
