Trentemøller’s “River In Me” with Jehnny Beth of Savages

The new album Fixion by Trentemøller dropped recently and while there are quite a few surprising little gems on the record, Savages Jehnny Beth lends her voice to the track, “River in Me.”

It’s an inspiring song and a good first hit of Trentemøller. Load it up, toke it and enjoy the ride.

Trentemøller: River In Me

 

Time is a Mountain “Memento Mono”

So jammy this jah?

Time is a Mountain’s II LP popped up on my radar and I’ve been nodding along every since. Just had to share.

Sweden does good heady stoner krautrockish vibes.

You can find copies of the LP on Discogs. Grab one while they’re luke warm.

Angel Olsen – Shut Up, No Seriously, Shut Up and Listen to This Song Right Now!

Angel Olsen’s new record and third full LP, My Woman, has pushed through the noise to the top of the pile. It’s so good I want to drown in every reverb drenched guitar note. This has been an excellent year for music and My Woman will probably make a few dozen top tens.

Ed Balloon “No Smoking”

Boston’s Ed Balloon is creating future jams for the present. With a solid foundation in R&B, Balloon’s inclinations run the gamut of genres, from the eclectic Indie rock of Of Montreal to Janis Joplin, Maxwell and Jill Scott. His approach to song making–and the results–occupy that excellent middle ground, straddling classifications.

Check out “Graduate,” a standout track from his EP, No Smoking.

“Black Sabbath” cover by GONGA and Beth Gibbons of Portishead

So it’s pretty much “Black Sabbath” with Beth Gibbons of Portishead singing. Not unlike peanut butter and chocolate or Oreo’s and Milk, these are two great tastes that sound great together, uh, if I can mix metaphors here.

It’s basically a note for note rendition with BG on vox.

And I will, cuz’ let’s face it, this blog is basically going to be what I review when I’m old and senile and looking to reconnect with my younger self.

Plus the Mario Brava flick “Black Sabbath” to the music. Also, it’s from 2014. Late to the party but never late to the show…
