Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
17 is a magic number this week as we explore different sounds with the same number as the latest episode. We'll also unearth a long lost and never released John Coltrane Quartet recording, as well as previously unreleased live material from Derek & The Dominoes and Traffic. The new bin is overflowing with Death Cab For Cutie, Fantastic Negrito, Low, Peter Buck and Joseph Arthur, Spiritualized and M. Ward to name a few... and new stuff from living legends Buddy Guy (with Mick, Keith and Jeff Beck), John Fogerty and new single from Nick Lowe. Plus a whole bunch more. Thanks to all for the wonderful get well wishes. I most definitely feel the love and thank you with all my heart.
Can't believe I went more than a month without posting but I've been in dental reconstruction hell, as well as very busy at work. That said, here's a few new and old things that I've been cranking in the Basement Studio recently.
I have been very ill for the last week but everything is looking good now. Here's some random tunes, new and old worth checking out. We'll begin with one of my favorite new releases, the new effort from Low.
My Morning Jacket return with "Circuital"
Speaking of My Morning Jacket, this Jim James collaboration with Booker T. Jones is my absolute favorite new song!
I think this is their best song to date.
Robert Plant reminded me about this great old Small Faces track.
Sometimes I really need to hear a little Dino to brighten my day.
Finally, since I missed posting on Mother's Day, let's close with this tear-jerker.
I've spent the weekend on a semi-massive "honey-do" list, as well as some long overdue clutter removal on my basement desk. While I try to listen to everything it is getting harder and harder to keep up with the steady stream of new releases, not to mention the archival and bootleg stuff that shows up daily. Here's a batch of stuff I uncovered this weekend, some new, some old and one just because. I need to start with a new release from one of my prog heroes Van Der Graaf Generator.

Finally got around to the new Low... WOW!
The new Colin Devlin album, his solo debut, is finally coming out. We've been playing it on the air since Colin sent me a copy in late 2008, and I can't believe it has taken this long to be released. This is really a great album.
From the 3 disc expanded, super duper version of one of their best. This is a great live medley!
Finally I pulled out this completely overlooked gem from former Guadalcanal Diary singer, Murray Attaway.
don't be a jerk
