Pulled out some old favorites tonight as a result of this evening's history of rock class. We talked about minimalist performers like Laurie Anderson (whom, you may know, was married to Lou Reed), and during break, my professor asked if I was familiar with her. I told him I didn't know much of her music, but I do like Sharkey's Day, so I went home to relisten/rewatch it.

Also, I recommended to my professor some other musicians I like in that vein, so sharing those as well. These aren't strictly minimalist - and at one point were considered New Age, though I'm not generally fond of New Age. Let's just call them instrumentally focused. I was fortunate to catch the Windham Hill tour my last week of high school and instantly fell in love:

Philip Aaberg: "Swoop":

William Ackerman: "Ventana"

And one of my favorite artists of all time, David Sylvian, who was in a British art rock group called Japan. As a solo artist, he took a far more experimental direction. During college, I listened to his album, "Words with the Shaman" when I was either studying or trying to sleep or just wanted to relax, so I pulled that out tonight as well. Part 1 and Part 2.

I generally don't like Yoko's music, but I have to say "Bad Dancer" is insidiously catchy.

I was able to make out the two remaining Beastie Boys, a chunkier-than-normal Sean Lennon, ?uestlove and Ira Glass from NPR. Couldn't get the others, though a few I kept thinking "I should know who they are..."

I was listening to this driving to the playground with my son this morning...

Totally agree. Whatever you do don't listen to Rod Stewart's cover.a-hard-days-night-ringo-14a-hard-days-night-ringo-14a-hard-days-night-ringo-14a-hard-days-night-ringo-14a-hard-days-night-ringo-14a-hard-days-night-ringo-14a-hard-days-night-ringo-14a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

My mother loved her Rod Stewart, so yes, I'm familiar with that one from the mid-90s. Every bit as bad as MMM advertised with all the Ringos. His cover of Oasis' "Cigarettes and Alcohol" is just as bad.

A guy I know from from work burned me a copy of an album called "Good and Evil" by a band named "Tally Hall".  I am really enjoying it!  Always nice to discover something new (especially when you are as picky as I tend to be!).  

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

That was friggin' hilarious. I couldn't spot anyone besides the Beastie Boys though. I even failed to spot Sean.

Simon & Garfunkel-Scarborough Fair

 

Someone recently loaned me all their albums so going thru them (i had a 3cd collection but to have the complete albums is always better). Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme (which has Scarborough Fair) is a strong album and you can definitely hear the progression in their music and songwriting leading up to Bridge Over Troubled Waters (their last album). Not a huge fan of the Wednesday Morning, 3am LP tho, their weakest in my opinion. The title track is a fine song but things like He Was My Brother and Sparrow are dull.

Its interesting that a lot of the song Wednesday Morning, 3am was included/reused in the track Somewhere They Can't Find Me (on Sounds of Silence). So much so someone else who heard the track said that they didn't like the new version thinking it was a cover

 

The wiki entry for the Wednesday Morning LP writes 

"The album was initially unsuccessful, having been released in the shadow of The Beatles' arrival on the scene. This resulted in Paul Simon's move to England and Art Garfunkel's resumption of his university studies at Columbia University in New York City."

Those pesky Beatles.

I'm a big fan of S&G. I admit some of their work is a bit dull, but there's some real gems in there, too.

Have been listening to the Specials all day, at the moment this:

''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''

My parents listen to S&G a lot, I've practically been raised on that music. Some stuff is dull indeed, but most of it is so good, it just fits any mood.

Right now I'm listening to the Cure-A Forest

Best. Bassline. Ever.
