Ok, this week I will try to post some nice dance music too, but it's so hard these days when we just want to sit outside and drink wine and listen to doobie brothers. So today we present to you relatively clean rivers, great band. Check out some info below.
Relatively clean rivers - easy ride
Relatively Clean Rivers - s/t (Pacific Is, 1976)
Recorded in 1975, this is a west coast psych tour de force that combines elements of vintage Grateful Dead with folk psych and BTL rural rock (in fact, an album like this very clearly illustrates the difference between rural rock and country rock, as it's very clearly Americana-influenced but really has no country reference points. That's one reason the term BTL is useful, it's an umbrella that encompasses both). Phil Pearlman is the singer and songwriter, and plays the lion's share of the instruments. In the '60s he had been behind the legendary psych freakout masters Beat of the Earth, but he started this project sometime in the early '70s. A very California record, this is full of lots of wide open spaces, jangly acoustic-guitar folk-rock tapestries, twangy, reverbed, Garcia-like electric leads, reedy vocal harmonies, and extended songs that achieve a stoned, dreamy feel. Go for the bootleg reissue, as you'll have to mortgage your home to buy an original copy of this self-release. I've read that only 500 copies were originally made and Pearlman "distributed" many of those just by discreetly depositing them around college campuses and record stores unannounced.

The last weeks have been kind of country. Or rather indie country perhaps. So we thought we'd put up two of those tracks that have been sounding most on the good old stereo system. Fleet foxes that you've probably all heard the ravings about, and yes, it's true, they are amazing, and Bon iver. Don't really know much about them except that they are very good. That's enought. Thanks to Richard Norris for the tracks! Graziaz!

Here's a track from Brightblack morning light that we've been raving about here. This one has a nice little weird hawaii feel to it. We like! And if you like it, have a look further down, there's a link to their labels website. They should have it both on vinyl and cd.
Thanks to Dansmusen for the files!

Sadly swedens fines jazz piano player Esbjörn Svensson died at age 44 this weekend in a scubadiving accident. He will be missed by many. Damn it, the good die young
So today we post one of our favourite tracks of the winter in venice album. This one is called Semblance suite 2. Groovy minimal jazz. Almost techno not techno
Got a big package of records over the weekend. Yeeesss... And one of the records I got was the 2006 release of Brightblack morning light full Album. And it's so f### great. Like a perfect mix between heroin rock and cinematic orchestra. I will be able to play every single track of this album out this summer. And believe me, I will. The album has been out of print for a while but should be back in stock again. Otherwise check their label: HERE
I haven't found any mp3's to put up, so for now you have to listen to their myspace. Might do a vinyl rip, but we'll see. LISTEN HERE

A very cheesy song from a very cheesy swedish move. The song "ingen kan ælska som vi" is no one can love like us translated, kind of.... And for fans of the new ....... #1 single from our favourite guys, you should probably recognise the guitar break from this tune.
Check out HERE
And buy it here while you can
