Improvisation - Leonard Cohen - Live Songs (Vinyl, LP, Album) download full album zip cd mp3 vinyl flac
Culled from a series of concerts except for "Tonight Will Be Fine" from the Isle of Wight festivalthe album consists of compositions from 's Songs From a Room and a handful of otherwise unavailable material. Those familiar with Songs From a Room will find that the live versions improve upon their studio counterparts, which sound like they were recorded down a well. The spirited hoedown rendition of "Tonight Will Be Fine" includes two extra verses, and the lovely, restrained performance of "Bird on the Wire" may be definitive.
As for the oddities, Dick Blakeslee's spry political allegory, "Passing Through," suits Cohen 's dry delivery, and the hypnotic instrumental "Improvisation" reveals a rarely seen side of his musical personality. Curiously enough, the haunting prologue and the poem-as-dirge "Queen Victoria" don't seem to have been recorded live at all. The centerpiece of the album, however, is "Please Don't Pass Me By," a monstrous minute rant, both outrageous and deadly serious, apparently half written, half made up on the spot.
Cohen dedicates the song to a host of outcasts, including "the cripples, the maimed, the freaks Before the song is over, he declares that he can't stand himself and instructs the members of the audience to "go home with someone else.
Electronic Folk International. Jazz Latin New Age. A verdant, utopian album, available on vinyl direct from the band. A serendipitous meeting in their coastal hometown of Bolinas, California, the common ground between the two made for a stunning reflection on the ocean that surrounds them- a coastal reverie that channels and articulates its nuances through the synthesizers.
Although not a big statement album, ANTI is littered with pop bangers that make us wanna drink champagne and smoke weed with RiRi till the early morn. Originally a Tidal music exclusive, we were pleased to see ANTI come to vinyl following the inevitable run of bootlegsas well as a massive career-spanning 15xLP box set.
An astral jazz original whose band The Pyramids emerged in the same breath as Sun Ra and pioneered a form of motherland-inspired Afro-futurism that can be traced through George Clinton to Kamasi Washington. The album has a propulsive freeform flow that makes for an addictive dance floor experience. Continuing his visionary flow of cosmic synth perfection, Ex-Emerald Steve Hauschildt, delivered his fifth solo LP this year, the mesmeric and masterful Strands.
Inspired by cosmogony and creation myths, the LP drifts through zero gravity states, inviting us onto the observation deck to cop some sweet solar rays. Pulsating sequences, nebulous pads and celestial melodies overlap and tessellate, gradually locking together before slipping into a timeless and malleable cosmic soup. While he may not be going boldly into new territories, Strands sees Hauschildt continue to expand our horizons, refining his craft and taking us along for a sublime space ride.
Just in time to give everyone a perfect Christmas we get this utterly amazing new set from Sean Canty and Miles Whittaker aka Demdike Stare. Wonderland crunches through the post-industrial landscape with remarkable versatility. An album that knows what works and how to use it, A Moon Shaped Pool may flirt with the formulaic at times, Album) still manages to satisfy and indulge all our mopiest moments.
With its hi-octane bounce, dark side grime references, cheeky vocal samples and psychedelic turns, Footwork or Die is more than a worthy successor to that landmark debut.
Each track on this glorious LP evolves like a tapestry where Meyer lies tweaking the threads at a microscopic level to knit together vast sonic kitenges.
Having collaborated with Kendrick among others, Malibu gives the LA vocalist a deserved moment in the sun, helped out by production from Madlib and Kaytranada. A joyous collection of untethered house, disco and RnB LP, Malibu makes the case to put Anderson. Indeed the production and the treatment of Coates cello really make this one shine, blurring the sonic spaces between the acoustic and the electronic in an approach that yields some unconventional and beautiful compositions.
With Crampton as muse, each artist asserts their past-future political vision across the seven mutant tracks with a collective force that is greater than anything solo. Crafting dystopian atmospherics that trace a razor sharp edge through new age soundtracks and video-game futuristics, Rain Temple may well appeal to fans of Burial, Album), Sakamoto and Vangelis, but in truth it exists in a realm of its own.
A black curtain here, a puff of smoke there, the audience is rapturous, disbelief, and Bowie, standing cooly by the side of the stage, smoking a cigarette and watching the illusion unfold one last time. Shedding some of the introversion, without losing the razor-sharp observation, hers in a sound that revels in sentiment rather than tropes, exploiting the lo-fi reverb of her more grung-y roots, or a more acerbic, synthetic feel to tell stories from experiences that belie her 29 years.
Not a chance. In this new Donald Trump-Alt Right axis, the protest album is once again an important document of the injustices and inequalities we are witness to. Few records from this year have reverberated and rumbled through the thoracic cavity quite like Fetish Bonesin which, Philadelphia-based musician, artist, and activist Camae Ayewa creates thirteen sound collages of spoken word, found founds, analog electronics and more.
Since then the label has nurtured a nascent lo-fi digi-dub sound on a string of cassettes and this, its sole LP release. If Adam Curtis made digi-dub, it might sound a bit like this. Originally conceived of as a soul record, the album filters vulnerable moments through slippery scales, from reverb-heavy smoothness to the very pits of experimentation.
Though the Tennessee-raised, Turin-based artist has released on labels like NON, Janus and Halcyon Veil under a number of guises, this stands at his most personal work Improvisation - Leonard Cohen - Live Songs (Vinyl date and the perfect example of what the peerless PAN label stands for.
But, on the usually horrific Black Friday, Frank Ocean via XL sold copies of the album for 24 hours only in a rather nice monochrome record sleeve version. But then again EARS is by no means an electronics-only affair and a remarkable thing about this one is the central presence of the acoustic, both in the instruments that intertwine with the Buchla arpeggios, and indeed in the feeling that an attentive ear to natural sound channels the bleeps and blips into its unique melodies.
