    March 6 02:54 PM
  • JJKeys Medulla is pretty damn weird man, even for me. I'm liking tracks like 'Where is The Line', 'Mouths Cradle' and 'Desired Constellation' - but 'Ancestors' is the most uncomfortable song I've ever listened to; it makes me feel... yknow.

  • tempest-- It's streaming on iTunes, gave it a listen yesterday... don't be expecting Vows Pt. II, this is a different beast entirely! So good though. Definitely need to pick up the deluxe edition for the bonus tracks as well.

    July 8 08:56 AM
  • tempest-- yea, I didn't think the song was that good either :-[ but hopefully the rest of the album will rule... I mean it has to, it's Kimbra!

    December 24 05:06 AM
  • Rowan5215 Oh, thanks! Merry Christmas to you too and I hope you have a great time.
    December 24 04:12 AM
  • manosg You're welcome, glad you liked it man. Indeed, It's A Man's Man's Man's World is one of the highlights of the album.
    December 17 04:53 AM
  • liledman Yeah I've felt a bit out of it with music this year, but that's perhaps just because of how intense it was the last few years. Hope you're doing well dude.
    November 24 03:27 AM
  • liledman Hey! I've been very well. Moved into an apartment in North Melbourne, reading heaps, watching many good films, and here and there doing some music too. I just played a gig last night actually with the guitarist from our band... which has basically stopped, unfortunately. But the two of us will keep playing in whatever setting we can. How is everything with you? Musically/generally?
    November 23 08:10 AM
  • manosg Hey man, I finally listened to Love, Power, Peace. Excellent album, thanks for the rec!
    November 14 01:16 PM
  • sehguh thnx mate
    July 25 07:38 AM
  • sehguh really liked those 2 tracks you put on my list, you got any more? fitting the mood i been in lately perfectly mate
    July 22 09:41 AM
  • Jom Sure, that would be fine, especially if they're the same format (e.g. LPs, EPs, etc.). Cheers.
    July 1 12:01 PM
  • Jom All good - thanks!
    May 31 11:12 AM
  • liledman Haha that's gold. Awesome dude, glad you are digging it. It is a pretty intense one, though if you can wrap your head around that then most of Coltrane's stuff should be approachable. Both Meditations and Sun Ship are fantastic.
    May 13 09:45 AM
  • SgtPepper That was incredible. I loved the sound, very mellow sound. I've never heard of Milton Nascimento but I'm eager to get some of his stuff. I'll definitely look into the album you recommended. Thanks, mate.
    March 2 02:54 AM
  • Jom Yes, please! The site can't yet process accented characters (yet). Thanks for writing, appreciate it!
    February 27 10:52 PM
  • SgtPepper Thanks, man. Hopefully things turn out well. I'll definitely try to pump out as many jazz reviews as I can.
    February 25 01:52 AM
  • liledman coleman should start unravelling a bit more every time you kind of break into harsher stuff, because he is still incredibly melodic. his style is just fascinating. haha that live in japan set is just insane. very rewarding listen though, even if you just go one track per listen or something.
    March 18 09:40 AM
  • liledman awesome man. yeah its really interesting, every time i come back to it, each of the players stands out more on their own. freddie hubbard is a really distinctive player too, and he always seems to sound like himself whether hes playing bop, free or his later fusion stuff.
    March 18 07:47 AM
  • liledman yeah ascension is probably not his craziest performance, but having all the others there and the intensity of the interplay makes it stand out. ornette coleman's album 'free jazz' is basically the same thing, a double quartet. makes for an interesting listen.
    March 17 09:18 PM
  • liledman thats a pretty awesome combo of artists right there. mccoy tyner is actually coming out for the melbourne jazz fest, tickets are like $100 though and im flat broke. so frustrating. yeah ive still been on a bit of a classical kick, but ive just downloaded a whole bunch of random stuff so who knows where it will take me. im trying to slow down my listening habits though, too excited about new stuff but i need to enjoy what ive already got.
    March 17 07:18 PM
  • liledman haha nice. the experience of those albums can be amplified certainly by alcohol or other substances, or even better, an early morning half awake state. the intensity is ten fold (whether thats good or bad depends on how far around the corner you are i guess). let me know what you think of ascension, because if you dig the others, its then just like adding more players. what else have you been listening to lately?
    March 17 09:54 AM
  • aok from what i typed it appears you are a better person than i. and remember to always look for the chance to 'put the knife in'
    January 2 03:59 AM
  • aok thank you thank you. will look into it
    October 30 04:58 PM
  • liledman ive got the village vanguard box set, so damn good. id be interested in seeing what you think of interstellar space, they are some fiery duets. i find those drum/sax duets he more frequently implemented late in his career are some of the most inspiring moments. just so raw.
    July 20 08:55 AM
  • liledman haha yeah i have a problem with containing my love for that quartet. the live stuff is great, and the live albums are really interesting because its like his studio life was a few months behind what he was doing live, its all experimenting. the live in japan album is just a behemoth though, 40-50 minute jams...
    July 20 06:24 AM
  • liledman yeah its funny i thought my favourite things would be just a novelty thing, but the song itself is really great. i read this cool thesis i guy posted online, charting coltranes maturation through 4 performances of my favourite things, seeing as it was one of the few songs he kept playing.
    July 20 06:01 AM
  • liledman yeah im pretty much the same, havent really explored his catalogue too much... unlike coltrane's gold mine which i constantly raid haha.
    July 20 04:36 AM
  • liledman yeah it definitely keeps it interesting the whole time, no filler. its a good length for that sort of stuff. i need to check out more of his stuff, and also later miles stuff, there are quite a few of his that ive put off for too long.
    July 20 04:17 AM
  • liledman his wholehearted embrace of electronic elements is definitely way ahead of the rest of the jazz game. its like bitches brew and electronic noises in some ****ed up alien blender.
    July 20 03:50 AM
  • liledman listening to sextant now, damn its cool.
    July 20 03:33 AM
  • Pharoh ohisee, she looks 90% like my ex, just a tad more wavy hair, and a "coke bottle" figure, if you get me.
    July 12 04:26 AM
  • Steoandnoodles Thanks a bunch man! =)This is great. Nothing like waking up to some smooth jazz.
    July 3 06:23 AM
  • patrickfannon Yeah, I need to listen to High Violet a bunch more. I remember being blown away by it on a few occassions, but sometimes it feels so burdensome to get into. Oh, I meant to ask you, have you heard of Bill Callhan and/or smog? His LP from this year, Apocalypse, is a solid 4 for me, and I think you might like it. Hope all's well, dude.
    June 24 06:04 PM
  • patrickfannon Oh, awesome man! I'm so happy you like the Bon Iver album as well. It's really fantastic, and if you have it at a 4 now, I'd definitely expect to see it grow to a 4.5 in the not-too-distant future. Still haven't gotten around to PJ Harvey, but the new Middle East album is really great. What else are you listening to these days?
    June 21 04:27 PM
  • patrickfannon Well, I guess those italics funtcions only work in message boards. Hahaha, sorry about that. Lesson learned!
    June 1 03:35 PM
  • patrickfannon Hey Chris, I've never gotten into PJ Harvey, but I've only ever heard great things. I'm going to download [i]Let England Shake[/i] and let you know what I think. I hope you love the new Bon Iver. It's fantastic.
    June 1 03:34 PM
  • patrickfannon Thanks for the compliment, man. I really appreciate it. Also, you've got terrifyingly good taste. What's your pick for AOTY so far? Well, thanks again, and I look forward to talking music with you in the future. Have a nice holiday weekend.

  • aok 'animals' is a more arduous journey, but it's got a way higher upside
    May 13 01:14 AM
  • aok hey man -- you ever listen to 'animals'? 'dogs' is arguably pink floyd's greatest achievement as a band
    May 13 12:39 AM
  • liledman good to hear man. check out alice coltrane - journey in satchidananda, joe henderson - multiple, i guess some more modal stuff like herbie hancock - maiden voyage, and other pharoah sanders albums: elevation, black unity and summun bukmun umyun.
    January 20 06:31 PM
  • alachlahol one of the greatest jazz albums of all time and such a beautiful genre in general glad you're enjoying it
