Evening Lads & greetings from a chilly West Wyalong.   Finally arrived at Mum’s place last week, on the road for 25 hours, including a 4 hour sleep in the car, and stopping every hour fo

Playing some Xmas albums:           --Geoff    

Hi All,   Some Steely Dan - Aja and Pretzel Logic.     JJ

Has anyone heard of the Irish band called: Director. Or have any of their albums? I must admit, l have never heard of them, until recently. But you know me...forever looking for new bands.

 

They only brought out 2 albums, 2006 & 2009. Thier first album won the Irish Music Prize for best album, We Thrive On Big Cities.

 

I guess you would call them Art Rock. They sound a lot like Joy Division, but on steroids (I guess that is why l like them). They also remind me of the English band: Wire.

 

On first cd listen. Their rhythm section is tight as..... The vocals very melodic and catchy.And when the guitars kick in, wow.

 

The other album is called: I'll Wait For Sound. But trying to buy their albums new is nigh imposible. Well l couldn't find any. But after a couple of months of looking. I found them both on eBay, 2nd hand. Said both in mint condition. Just had to replace the jewel case, the one l have received so far.

 

But this first album is a stunning album. They only had the 2 albums, then disbanded. Which is a shame, because they could have been anything. Still waiting for the 2nd album to arrive. Will post a review when l get it.

 

Well worth streaming if you are into this type of sound.

 

👌Ken

David Torn - What Means Solid, Traveller? -- 1996 CD from experimental guitarist wot I yoinked from an op shop today for $1. Recognized the name from appearance on a David Sylvian album. The tracks here are kinda ambient tribal fusion with lots of shredding and processing.

Enjoyed it very much on the first listen. Some hints of ELO and the Beatles in places... but that might be me...

 

Cheers,

I play CD's every now and then and keep forgetting to post them here. I have a new bluray player which I am testing CD's on and last night the ingredients were there for a real head trip (after I watched a movie).

 

Started with Todd Rundgren's (TR-1) cut and paste masterpiece "No World Order" which is a real cerebral blast. This album takes me places.....

 

Todd Rundgren - No World Order - Amazon.com Music

 

Next up was another brain basher, Billy Idol's "Cyberpunk". An underrated album but maybe an acquired taste for some. It's a great recording with excellent SQ.

 

That Time Billy Idol Jumped to the Future With 'Cyberpunk'

 

I finished with the ultimate in space rock, Hawkwinds "Warrior On The Edge Of Time" Atomhenge remaster. By the end of this, my satisfied brain needed a rest and I was ready for dreamland! Spacey dreams!B|

Abit of Tal.  Very different from what I ever expected.   Needs more listens but it has my interest.

 

Tal Wilkenfeld - Love Remains

 

So what does Love Remains sound like? Well, imagine if Joni Mitchell, Jaco Pastorious, Phoebe Bridgers, and 2010s Steven Wilson had a love child. The album is a beautiful mix of indie rock, progressive rock, folk, and jazz, yet it still manages to retain a clear razor-sharp vision throughout its runtime.

So much to love about Eric's playing and style.

 

This one is all brutal power and blistering 6 string skill.

I've tried a few times to email DD's label/manager/the man himself on Instagram to have this album available to stream (Tidal, Qobuz) but no dice. 

A great local DIY effort from a talented young'un

The human octopus is at it again.   

 

Donati - the rhythmic 8th wonder of the world.

 

I do love the few vocal tracks from Jack Jones aka Irwin Thomas
