Laboring on.

Posted By on Tue, Sep 5, 2006 at 2:28 PM

Howdy. How was everyone's long weekend? Mine was regular sized — we're in production on Mondays. Not complaining, though. It was fairly stress free.

Let's talk about what pops up in my iPod!

I randomly heard two Tim Buckley tunes today, both from his far-out 1970 album Starsailor. That man sure could caterwaul. Can't post 'em, though; the files are locked.

Say, have any of you PC users ever experienced difficulty streaming or downloading the songs I put up? They're typically in MP4 format, which may lead to incompatibilities. Post a comment, and let me know; I can always convert. But not to Christianity. They won't have me.

Speaking of Buckleys, have you ever wondered what Daryl Hall (of Hall & Oates fame) and Robert Fripp might sound like together? A bit like late-period Jeff, only a whole lot cheesier. The song in question appears on Fripp's 1979 solo jaunt, Exposure. He'd rip it off two years later with "Matte Kudesai," from King Crimson's Discipline. Anyway, check it out if you've got any kind of tolerance for melodramatic falsetto: 

"North Star"

And finally, a groovy new number from Akron/Family's upcoming disc, Meek Warrior. I sometimes like this band, especially the more percussive stuff. Enjoy yourselves a nice, krautrock-psych-trance-free-jazz-jam:

"Blessing Force"
