Rolling Stones From the Vault: L.A. Forum Live in 1975 & Hampton Coliseum Live in 1981

Read "Rolling Stones From the Vault: L.A. Forum Live in 1975 & Hampton Coliseum Live in 1981" reviewed by

Given that their history spans more than five decades and multiple generations, it only stands to reason the Rolling Stones would have a veritable wealth of material in their archives on par with the vintage likes of Charlie Is My Darling (Abkco, 2012) and what's perhaps the next high-water mark of their career after that mid-Sixties apogee, the Exile on Main Street (Rolling Stones, 1972) era Ladies and Gentlemen the Rolling Stones (Eagle Vision, 2010). There may be more scintillating content than what's contained in the first two editions of 'From the Vault,' but the fact of the matter is ...

Led Zeppelin Remastered: The Second Batch (IV & Houses of the Holy)

Read "Led Zeppelin Remastered: The Second Batch (IV & Houses of the Holy)" reviewed by

I, II, III | IV, Houses of the Holy Following the 1-2-3 punch of its first three albums--first released between January 1969 and October 1970 and reissued in June, 2014 as the first batch of a year-long series of overdue (and expanded) remasters of its entire nine-album catalog--Led Zeppelin continued on an upward trajectory, touring extensively and beginning to introduce songs that would ultimately appear on the British rock band's fourth album, one that bucked all marketing conventions and contained neither the name of the band nor the name of the album beyond a series of symbols, ...

Party Knüllers: Was Something Lost in Translation?

Read "Party Knüllers: Was Something Lost in Translation?" reviewed by

The duo Party Knüllers is a transatlantic collaboration between Chicago's own Fred Lonberg-Holm on cello & electronics and Norway's Ståle Liavik Solberg on drums & percussion. The two played together in a quartet, also including clarinetist Frode Gjerstad and vocalist Stine Janvin Motland, on VC/DC (Hispid, 2011), the inaugural release of the label that now releases two albums by the duo themselves. One of these albums is a vinyl collaboration with Chicagoan Jim Baker on analogue synthesizer, bearing a bizarre title that is surely guaranteed to raise an eyebrow or two as well as the occasional embarrassed giggle or guffaw! ...

Konstruct rules the world

Read "Konstruct rules the world" reviewed by

KonstruKt with Marshall Allen, Barlas Tan Özemek, and Hüseyin Ertunç Vibrations Of The Day Holidays Records 2014 If you are old enough, you might remember when four lads from Liverpool conquered America with rock-and-roll, or how the Rolling Stones redefined the blues tradition. The American blues tradition, that is. Add to that short list, the Turkish band Konstrukt. This quartet of saxophonist Korhan Futacı, guitarist Umut Çağlar, drummer Korhan Argüden and percussionist Özün Usta have reshuffled the free jazz scene. For the past decade they have been turning heads (and ears) by making improvised ...

Robert Fripp: Across Four Decades with Brian Eno and Theo Travis

Read "Robert Fripp: Across Four Decades with Brian Eno and Theo Travis" reviewed by

In a professional career now approaching 50 years, guitarist Robert Fripp may be at his most visible when he's finding that “way of doing things" that necessitates the return of his flagship King Crimson--its recently revived and revitalized seven-piece, three-drummer lineup completing its 20-date American debut tour in early October 2014, including two exhilarating nights at San Francisco's Warfield Theatre. It was so successful--and, perhaps most importantly, so enjoyable--for the 68 year-old co-founder of the group that shook the world 45 years ago with the release of In the Court of the Crimson King (DGM Live, 1969) that talks are ...

Another Timbre’s Berlin Series goes from strength to strength

Read "Another Timbre’s Berlin Series goes from strength to strength" reviewed by

Another Timbre's Berlin Series began slowly and gathered momentum gradually. The first issue in the series appeared in spring 2013 and set a pattern for the series by being split between two of the city's fine duos--Michael Thieke/Olivier Toulemonde and Lucio Capece/Jamie Drouin. Despite that volume garnering considerable praise, the second one did not appear until a year after it and may have been somewhat overshadowed by its inclusion in a batch of releases with the extraordinary Despairs Had Governed Me Too Long by Skogen; as with the first volume, the second was a split disc, being shared by the ...
