Explanation of Artist

Sorry about the lack of updates folks, but I've been too busy hyperventilating in a corner since I found out Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti are playing Whelan's on May 15th.  Ohhh mmyyyy goddd.

Also coming: Grouper and Mi Ami. They say missing out on an Animal Collective ticket will come back to you threefold, and it has.

On my recent trek through the annals of DIY/lo-fi, I've been turned onto the mind-blowing R. Stevie Moore, bedsit recording extraordinaire. You couldn't write this guy if you tried.







He released Phonography in 1976, and it's the kind of album David Byrne couldn't have dreamed of writing at his peak. You'll notice some serious similarities between Moore and Ariel Pink (who've collaborated by mail), not only the obvious DIY roots, but a strong likeness between songs such as "Alecia" (former) and "Alisa" (latter). I like the idea of homage and constant exchange between the work of each throwing creative ownership into question. 



[[Somewhat appropriately, Phonography will be the last full album I'll offer for download here. I don't feel great about doing so and to be honest I could do without being hunted down by KGB-esque industry 'bots.]]

Do download this, though. It's a fucking epiphany. One of the best sounds I've ever heard.

  1. Hey, so I've been listening to angkorwat lately, wow. Gatecrasher is excellent. And it's always an immense pleasure to discover that someone else is a fan of Grey Gardens. That reminds me - I wrote an piece about it ages ago and forgot to upload it. Memory like a sieve.

  2. Aww, thanks. Grey Gardens is the biz isn't it? Talk about a perfect story just waiting to be told. I love documentary. Your music is pretty filmic actually, it needs to be used in a scary-childhood-memory Von-Trier-type piece.
    You need to update your blog! Although to be fair, when you do post it's quality stuff.

  3. I agree, I've let the blog become overgrown and slightly musty. Although to be fair, I've been ridiculously busy at work and I've been working on the album - nearly there I think - so I struggle to find the time. This weekend, no question, there'll be a new post.

    Re. films, I'm waiting for a call from anyone who's interested in collaborating! I'd film stuff myself but I don't have access to equipment. Ah well.

  4. thanks for turning me on to this Niamh. I had heard of him before but never really thought of checking him out. Love the clips so I'm going to get right into it.
