New Rome: Nowhere (Room40, 2016)

New Rome: Nowhere

New Rome: Nowhere

This one almost completely escaped by notice, which is bizarre considering I usually get promos of almost everything Room40 releases, but I stumbled upon it late and now it’s my favorite ambient album of the year. Cloudlike and billowing, but it always has a definite direction that it’s floating in. A few tracks like “Beginning” stop just shy of having actual beats, but the tempos can still be measures in BPMs. Overall, it just sounds incredibly hopeful, not to mention supremely relaxing. Basically, this album is like that Huerco S. album that came out earlier this year, except that album is getting tons of (well deserved) hype and this one isn’t getting any.

Morricone Youth: The Adventures of Prince Achmed 12″ EP (Country Club Records, 2016)

Morricone Youth: The Adventures of Prince Achmed 12" EP

Morricone Youth: The Adventures of Prince Achmed 12″ EP

Morricone Youth has been composing scores to classic films recently, and they’re planning on releasing many of them. A score for Night of the Living Dead was released this year, and this one is for a 1926 silent animation called The Adventures of Prince Achmed. As their NOTLD score fast-forwarded a few decades and was closer to a Goblin score for a later George Romero film, this one doesn’t sound like it could’ve been recorded in the 1920s, but instead sounds closer to something from an Ethiopiques compilation. Not strictly, though. It’s a pretty sprawling, colorful, well-orchestrated mix of various Arabic, Asian, and African influences, with horns, strings, keyboards, and lots of percussion, and it’s delicious. There’s unexpected moments, like when “Peri Banu” starts out a bit more melancholy and reflective and then suddenly switches into something more festive and excited for the last minute. Following the calmer “Maidens”, the disc ends with a 10-minute Afrobeat jam called “Sorcerer” which is out of this world. Was not expecting this at all, and it’s fantastic.

Quentin Tolimieri: Piano (pfMENTUM, 2016)

Quentin Tolimieri: Piano

Quentin Tolimieri: Piano

Crazy, mega-fractured piano compositions. Very Conlon Nancarrow-sounding, except I don’t think these are player piano pieces. Very choppy and rapid, and seemingly defies any logic of time signatures or rhythms, but there’s clearly melodies and themes and a sense of structure holding it all together. A cover of “On Green Dolphin Street” is a bit more straightforward and less jumbled, but the version of Thelonious Monk’s “Well You Needn’t” is bonkers (but still recognizable). Mindblowing, and also tons of fun. On Bandcamp, although the cover versions aren’t available to stream.

Palm Tapes megapost

Stef Chura & Anna Burch: split tape

Stef Chura & Anna Burch: split tape

Palm Tapes has been one of Detroit’s breakout labels in 2016, with a huge pile of tapes and an LP in their discography. The site has a Bandcamp where you can listen to a few tracks from each release, but all the prices are set at $69 because they want you to buy the actual tapes, which are $5 each, from their site. Here’s a few highlights from the label so far. The split tape between singer/songwriters Stef Chura & Anna Burch is already up to its second pressing. Stef has kind of a stretchy, squirmy voice and kind of reminds me of Kristin Hersh. “Slow Motion” is one of my favorite rock songs of the year, just a really good driving pop song. “Faded Heart” is similar, but “Speeding Ticket” is more of a slow burn. Fred Thomas recorded and played on these songs. He also did the same on the first Anna song. Anna has more of a calm, hushed voice, and her songs are way more lonely and depressed. “You Bum Me Out” is particularly brutal. Not musically, it’s just guitar, vocals, and organ, but lyrically it’s just devastating. Look out for Stef’s album on Urinal Cake Records in January.
Armadillo: II tape

Armadillo: II tape

Armadillo’s II is a spectacular tape of reflective guitars plus booming beats. Some of it gets a little dancey, particularly on side B, and some of it is more trappy. It’s as warbly and blown out as you would expect from a cassette of this nature. Most of the tracks flow into each other and there’s no titles or lyrics, so it’s just a good idea to hit play and float for a while.
The Bed Band: The Dreamiest tape

The Bed Band: The Dreamiest tape

The Bed Band’s The Dreamiest is warped bedroom psych-pop from Ivan Antonio Gamboa. High-pitched vocals, sun-baked smeared guitars, and sometimes drum machines blipping in the background. Lots of songs about cute weird girls and hazy summer days.
v/a: Northern Palms Volume One tape

v/a: Northern Palms Volume One tape

Maybe the best of the lot is the one that doesn’t actually feature Detroit artists. Northern Palms Volume One is a compilation of Canadian electronic artists. M. Walter’s tracks are juke-inspired, and while they seem a bit light and breezy and with a carefree sense of humor (track titles include “Why Won’t Anyone Go To The Gathering With Me” and “Damn This Fiji Water Actually Tastes Pretty Good”), they’re thoughtfully constructed. ADO starts out with a short, slow, crushed beat called “Yeaassss”, and then there’s a hyperdriven ultra-polyrhythmic juke track called “For A Copy” which is absolutely astounding, followed by a long, relentless techno pounder called “Soundtest”. On the other side, Burn Cycle flashes back to early ’90s breakbeat techno with his three easygoing tracks. Motoko’s tracks are even sunnier and more beach-friendly. The last track is slower and mellower and has more keyboard soloing.

Fall 2016 Road Trip

November 2, 2016 at 10:18 pm | Posted in Photos | Leave a comment

I drove to Los Angeles and back just because I wanted to, and to visit my cousin. I went by myself and tried not to have much of a plan, but I had to have some sort of timeline to fit with other peoples’ schedules. It might’ve been the best vacation I’ve ever taken. I’ve gone on vacations across the country with my family before, but actually driving by myself was an entirely new perspective. It was fascinating. I feel like I have a newfound appreciation for America, in an entirely unpolitical way. I bought a new camera just for the vacation because my other camera was broken and still being repaired (it’s fixed now). I took well over a thousand photos. A lot of them were just spontaneous shots while I was driving, and a lot of them were pretty redundant or bad shots, but there’s still hundreds worth posting. Enjoy!

    September 30


I drove to Chicago to visit my friend Eric who was having a birthday celebration at a bar/arcade that had free game play that night.

After sleeping at my friend’s house, we got breakfast at the Chicago Diner and went to Reckless Records, and then I started driving west.

I didn’t stay anywhere to sleep overnight, I just kept driving and took a nap for a couple hours at a rest stop in the morning. Also, my camera’s battery ran out, and since I didn’t stop anywhere to sleep, I had to wait until the afternoon to recharge, when I stopped to eat somewhere. I drove to Denver and walked around downtown and then visited my friend Catdog.

I drove from Denver to Los Angeles in one shot. I didn’t end up in Los Angeles til about 2AM (Pacific Time) but this took me through the Rocky Mountains, which was mindblowing.

I went to Amoeba in the morning, and later we went to a park where there’s an abandoned zoo. There was also a haunted hayride set up, and they let us walk around for free. At night I went out to Low End Theory for a little bit.

My last day in Los Angeles. Went to Amoeba again, walked around another park area, this time went hiking to a waterfall which was just a trickle because there was a drought.

I started driving back in the morning. At one point I had to stop and call AAA because I was about to run out of gas and I just missed the last exit for hundreds of miles. So it was mostly just a day of driving through the desert.

After staying overnight at a hotel in Utah, I continued driving, and took photos at as many view areas as I could. My camera was running out of space, though, so I put it away after a while and kept driving.

Final day driving home. I didn’t stop overnight, I just kept driving and took a nap or two at rest stops.
