Galaxies Incredible Sensual Transmission Field Of The... by Tower Recordings

Tower Recordings

Galaxies Incredible Sensual Transmission Field Of The...
Communion Label

The Galaxies Incredibly Sensual Transmission Field of the Tower Recordings comprises a full band expedition to an upstate New York church session around the time that songs used for the Folk Scene album were recorded.?! After reviewing the tapes with fellow tapenaut and TTR member Tim Barnes, Matt Valentine (MV) said The music is some of the finest TTR has ever produced, encompassing all our nodes and distilled toward a universal sound like no other that the band ever touched on.?! We believe you will agree.?! These recordings find TTR in their penultimate moment, as a full ensemble breathing alternately spicy and sweet and hazy and then twinkling.?! There are a lot of reference points, but we'll leave those up to you to discern.?! You're an adult now.?! We trust you.  Line-Up: MV / PG Six / Helen Rush / Tim Barnes / Samara Lubelski / S.?! Freyer, Esq.?! / Andre Vida / Dean Roberts TRACK LISTING 1.?! Harvester 2.?!

All Roads Lead To Land by Palmer, Clive

Palmer, Clive

All Roads Lead To Land
Communion Label

***A founding member of The Incredible String Band, Clive Palmer is a virtuoso banjo player and distinguished folk musician who has recorded at least three (still sort of 'lost') classic albums with ensembles C.O.B.?! (Clive's Original Band) and The Famous Jug Band.?! Palmer has been in several other mythical bands, and has released a selection of awe-inspiring solo albums all the way up to the present time. Ten of the songs constituting All Roads Lead To Land were recorded during a 1999 session with two additional tracks culled from previous UK-only releases.?! The songs were picked by Steve Fellows, assigned songselector for an overview retrospective of Palmer's long and varied career.?! However, upon hearing the 1999 sessions, it was decided that these magical tracks, previously unreleased, stood up with the best of his previously released material and deserved to be heard.?!

Acoustic Adventures by Kunin, Ben

Kunin, Ben

Acoustic Adventures
Communion Label

***Ben Kunin patiently mentors students of sarod and Hindustani music theory 20 miles north of San Francisco in San Rafael, at the school founded by one of the greatest musicians of the 20th Century, sarodist Ali Akbar Khan.?! In addition to being a master student of Hindustani music theory and sarod-playing, Kunin is also an incredible classical guitarist who can stand the hairs on your arms and neck on end and slip time out of its more linear patterns.?! With an acoustic nylon-stringed guitar, he can blow you away with some of the most inspired guitar-playing since John Fahey, Terry Riley or Rick Bishop.?!

***The Communion Label is pleased to present another special chapter from the ever-changing ensemble known as THE TOWER RECORDINGS.?! Folk Scene presents the crew (for this recording inclusive of MATT VALENTINE, P.G.?! SIX, HELEN RUSH, ERIKA ELDER, TIM BARNES, S.?! FREYER ESQ., STEVE GUBLER, ROBERT HENRY JONES III, SAMARA LUBELSKI, DEAN ROBERTS, ANDRE VIDA, and BARRY WEISBLAT) in a rarified state, a folksiche mood and sound hinted at in previous recordings (especially Siltbreeze's wondrous Furniture Music) but now developed in full blossom.?! Beauty and inspiration rain down like manna in these sessions, recordings both wonderfully focused and distilled, yet free. Those of us enamored of the English pagan folk rock of decades past (both electric and acoustic) will no dooubt be pleased with this enhanced collection, previous released as a limited vinyl pressing of 300 copies.?!

***Musicians reaching a point in their careers when it is imperative that they release an album with the most ridiculous title imaginable - it is a revered tradition with a long, colorful history.?! Honestly, now, Sgt.?! Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, what the hell's that about?! And Their Satanic Majesty's Request?! As if! And then there's Works, Volume 2.?! Where do they get this stuff! It should be perfectly obvious that Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 have been poised to gussy up the canon of Ridiculous Album Titles since, oh, about their third day as a band.?! Of course, there is a story behind Bob Dinners and Larry Noodles present Tubby Turdner's Celebrity Avalanche, a long, ridiculous story about a talkshow that's probably detailed in excruciating detail on a website somewhere.?!

***The debut album from this Munich chamber rock quartet led by MICHAEL HEILRATH (of COUCH and BLOND) will enrapture fans of the rock–classical hybrid.?! On this recording, Heilrath is joined by MARKUS ACHER (of NOTWIST and TIED & TICKLED TRIO), MATHIS MAYR, MATHIAS LÖHLEIN and STEPHAN RICHTER, who employ violin, clarinet, cello, and piano, along with electric guitar, bass and drums in Heilrath's original compositions, originally written as a soundtrack to SVEN GADE's silent film Hamlet (1920).?! Vertonung displays in no small measure Heilrath's passion for fractured beats and tragic melodies.?! It's the rhythm section versus the strings, generating eternal loops, getting together and then splitting up again.?! Minimal breaks in the continuity of the music appear after several times listening.?! The tracks follow a very long melodic arch with martial, ever-grooving beats.?! Godspeed..?!
