Underrated/obscure Gems Part Ii

The long-awaited sequel
Before Driving to the Chapel we took coffee with Rick and Jennifer Reed

Better that AMMmusic probably (30 years after!)
2Morton Feldmen
Triadic Memories

Your first step in the long and twisting path to complete wankery
Live at the Rothko Chapel

Free Improv with some goddamn exquisite percussion.
4Sunshine Has Blown
Sunshine Has Blown

Free Improv. Up there with The Avalanches and Purplene as my favourite Australian
exports (other than VB!) (that was a joke)
5 Trondheim Jazzorkester/Kim Myhr/Jenny Hval
Ultima Festival Premier

If you've only heard Viscera get up on this with haste immediately. Folky/free-
6 The Velvet Underground
Norman Dolph Acetate

My favourite Bootleg!
7 Sonic Youth
The Walls Have Ears

My Second-Favourite Bootleg!
8The Veils
Nux Vomica

They have a new album coming out so it would make sense to get acquainted with
them now. NZ REPRESENT. Also, i interviewed the frontman on the skype the other
day and he was delightful!
9Henryk Górecki
Symphony No. 3

My emotions have been annihilated it hurts so good. Seriously stunning stuff.
10 Agustín Barrios
The Completed Guitar Recordings

Folk/Classical Guitar virtuoso. Also the recordings of the tracks have a mad
Caretaker vibe. Haunting and beautiful.
11 Tim Hecker
Haunt Me Haunt Me Do it Again

My favourite Hecker. Utterly transportative. RIYL The Caretaker, Stars of the Lid,
other obvious Ambient pics.
12 Paul Dolden
The Threshold of Deafening Silence

The most 'difficult' album in existence. people who think mr. bungle are experimental
(and that's not a slight! but there's experimental and there's EXPERIMENTAL) will
not be prepared. Although in fairness no-one will.
13Dads [Tampa]
Invisible Blouse

ingenious Merchandise-related side-project 1
14 D. Vassalotti
Book of Ghosts

ingenious Merchandise-related side-project 2
15 Harvey Milk
Courtesy and Good-Will Towards Men

Sludgeeeeeeeeeeee mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
16 Dionne Warwick
Walk on By

Makes me feel all joyous and shit. Pop perfection
17The Guillemots
Through the Windowpane

Made-Up Love Song #43 is so poignant and acute and euphoric that it more or less
renders all other love songs obsolete.
18Early Day Miners
Let Us Garlands Bring

Slowcore with crescendos
19DJ Cam
Mad Blunted Jazz

Trip-Hop as a perfect companion to scotch and cigars
20 Lil Yo
Gangster's on a come-up

90's hip-hop par excellence. Bangin'.
