Easy Star Allstars - Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band (2009)

After famously covering Pink Floyd(I'll post this one tomorrow) and Radiohead, the infamous dub-reggae band goes to cover the biggest record of them all: the Beatles's Sgt. Pepper.

The whole thing is fantastic, even though they are just having a lot of fun, some of these covers even approach what is commonly referred as ART.

There is no bad song here, I mean, if you like REGGAE and DUB, because that's what it is. I was really worried about how would the "Within Without You" cover sound like, though. When I heard it, boy, was I surprised or what? It's GRATE! What about the "She's Leaving Home" version, then?

2. "With a Little Help from My Friends" ft. Luciano
3. "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" ft. Frankie Paul

Medeski, Martin & Wood - End Of The World Party (Just In Case) (2004)

From some fellow on rateyourmusic.com:

"End of the World Party (Just in Case) might just prove to be MMW's best studio effort to date.

The first three tracks have a vibe/mood to them that succinctly matches the title of the album: dark, eery, spooky, and ominous, all fueled by exceptional use of Medeski's mellotron and synthesizers. The remaining songs offer more variety, from a latinesque and jazzy "Mami Gato" to a middle eastern tinged "Bloody Oil" powered by some deep bass work by Chris Wood to the soulful "New Planet" or "Queen Bee", which reminds me of the soundtrack to a 70's detective television show. MMW's cohort in musical exploration, guitar virtuoso Marc Ribot, adds flavor and texture to the album on a few tracks, as do Steven Bernstein and Briggan Krauss on horn, while the production was led by John King of the Dust Brothers.

This album is an absolute must have for MMW fans and lovers of creative music. All three are at the top of their masterful game. Beware this album will be hard to remove from your cd player!"

Van Der Graaf Generator - H to He who am the only one (1970)

Even though we all hate progressive rock excesses (and Van Der Graaf are the best in prog-rock excesses) this album is kind of cool. It has some really good saxophone riffs and the songs aren't that long, therefore, you won't get bored easily. Killer is one of my favourite prog-rock tracks, Hammil has an undeniable great voice.

A tribe Called Quest - Low end Theory (1991)

From allmusic.com:

With The Low End Theory, A Tribe Called Quest created one of the closest and most brilliant fusions of jazz atmosphere and hip-hop attitude ever recorded. The rapping by Q-Tip and Phife Dawg could be the smoothest of any rap record ever heard; the pair are so in tune with each other, they sound like flip sides of the same personality. One of the best hip-hop albums in history, a record that sounds better with each listen. The Low End Theory is an unqualified success, the perfect marriage of intelligent, flowing raps to nuanced, groove-centered productions.

The Fall - Perverted By Languages (1983)

One of the best records by one of the best bands in the world. Not really easy to describe, there's a certain postpunky moody but this is a Fall album, and you will never know what will come next.

If you're new to The Fall, bear in mind the keyword to their sound: Repetition. Yeah, great riffs repeating and repeating while Mark E. Smith sings his poetry with his bum-messiah voice.

You will probably hate it. But remember: Mark E. smith hates you too.

The Police - Zenyatta Mondatta (1980)

Ok, so I'm sick of receiving the same complaints over and over again.
"Why do you only post heterossexual music?"; "Are you people homophobic?"; "Where's gay music??"

For the last time: We are not homophobics. We like gay people a lot! We have always supported the gay movement. My dog is gay!

And to prove our gay-friendliness and open-mind, here's a trademark gay record: The Police's Zenyatta Mondatta. It contains the most beautiful gay anthems someone could ever write. In "Don't Stand so Close To Me" Sting. the lead singer, is not afraid to shout out loud with all the words that he doesn't appreciate women close to him. "De Do Do Do De Da Da Da" is pure poetry and was voted Gay Anthem of The Year in a 1981 BBC's poll. "Behind my camel" and "Canary in a Coalmine" carefully examinate the existence of homossexuality in the animal world.

It's a really good album, it's got reggae, it's got new wave, clever instrumentals. It may sound a bit dorky and annoying at sometimes, but it's okay. it's because they're all gay.

Track listing:

1) Don't Stand So Close To Me; 2) Driven To Tears; 3) When The World Is Running Down You Make The Best Of What's Still Around; 4) Canary In A Coalmine; 5) Voices Inside My Head; 6) Bombs Away; 7) De Do Do Do De Da Da Da; 8) Behind My Camel; 9) Man In A Suitcase; 10) Shadows In The Rain; 11) The Other Way Of Stopping.

Paul Revere & The Raiders - The Spirit of 67' (1967)

Dammit, does this album cover sucks or what?
But, skip that, there is great music inside it.

From allmusic.com:
"By the time they recorded their third Top Ten album The Spirit of '67, Paul Revere and the Raiders were firmly established as one of America's best and most popular homegrown rock 'n' roll acts. The band had also begun to spread its wings creatively, expanding the garage-flavored rock 'n' roll of their early hits into more ambitious and sophisticated musical territory. Along with such classic Raiders smashes as "Hungry," "Good Thing" and "The Great Airplane Strike," The Spirit of '67 finds the quintet embracing psychedelia on such tunes as "Oh! To Be a Man," "1001 Arabian Nights" and "Undecided Man," while delivering memorable showcases for bassist Phil "Fang" Volk ("Why? Why? Why?") and drummer Michael "Smitty" Smith ("Our Candidate"). This expanded edition augments the original 11-song album with three rare bonus tracks, including an alternate version of "Hungry" and the single mix of "The Great Airplane Strike."

Tangerine Dream - Phaedra (1974)

Ok, so people always send me emails saying how nice the records I put on the blog are, how I never post bad music here, how my musical taste and fantastic and etc...

Well, here's a terrible record. I hate it.

Phaedra is regarded by many as Tangerine Dream's masterpiece. Supposedly, this album is one of the best ambient-music records that have ever been made. Many call it a ""transcendental experience"", or, to quote some fellow from amazon.com: "it took me beyond the limits of my imagination".

I have no idea how can someone go beyond the limits of his imagination listening to 40 minutes of one keyboard note constantly pressed. I guess I just don't have what it takes to reach the spiritual potential of such deep albuns, as, for example: Brian Eno's extremely highly acclaimed ambience albuns.

Brian Eno, a very spiritual guy.

Van Morrison - Moondance (1970)

Deeply spiritual. Morrison explores themes of renewal and redemption. Light, soulful, and jazzy, Moondance opens with the sweetly nostalgic "And It Stoned Me," the song's pastoral imagery establishing the dominant lyrical motif recurring throughout the album — virtually every track exults in natural wonder, whether it's the nocturnal magic celebrated by the title cut or the unlimited promise offered in "Brand New Day." At the heart of the record is "Caravan," an incantatory ode to the power of radio; equally stirring is the majestic "Into the Mystic," a song of such elemental beauty and grace as to stand as arguably the quintessential Morrison moment.

The Go! Team - Proof of Youth(2007) and Thunder Lightining Strike (2004)

Even though at first they may sound a bit TOO poppy and indiey, they are great, believe me. If you can stand excessively happy music, you'll love them like I do.

The key factor is that they represent very well the London cultural miscigenation, for example, their leadsinger is a black rapper Ninja. They also have a japanese singer who acts like they're recording an anime soundtrack. And the main songwriter is Ian Parton, who loves 70's blackexploitation music and spy movies.

The final result is not a mess, and instead, one of the most interesing mixs of different styles I've ever heard. If you don't like the video for Doing It Right below, try listening to another of their songs on youtube.

The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads (1982)

Although most people probably think the only Talking Heads live release is Stop Making Sense, the fact is that there's an earlier, better live album called The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads. Originally released in 1982 on LP and cassette, the album chronicles the growth of the band, both stylistically and personnel-wise. The excitement of this material is palpable, and the muscular band rips into these tunes with more power than the originals in most cases. At this point in their career, Talking Heads were still basically an underground band; it was "Burning Down the House" that really thrust them into the mainstream, and Stop Making Sense documents their arrival as a more or less mainstream act. The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads captures a hungry band on its way up, performing with a fire that was never matched on later tours.

Captain Beefheart - Ice Cream for Crow (1982)

Another crazy man's album. This one is the last record made by the legendary Don Van Vliet, or, Captain Beefheart. If you're not familiar with him yet, well... I guess you're going to be a bit shocked with Ice Cream For Crow.

Although not as shocking as his famous record Trout Mask Republica(1968), this one shows a older and maturer Beefheart. Allegedly a schizophrenic and visibly not completely sane, he sounds like a dying pirate cursing his fellow shipmates here.

After this record, Beefheart left the music businness and went to live isolated somewhere in the californian desert. Some don't even know if he's still alive. Well, God bless that poor soul.

Can - Ege Bamyasi (1972)

This is a fantastic record. One of my favourites ever, definitely.
If you still arent familiar with Can and Krautrock, I'd recommend you to search wikipedia to see what they stand for. In resume, they are a german band with a japanese singer who sings in mumblings.

This record is one of those you get high while listening to. I mean, not literally, it's just that the sound is so grasping and involving, you can't help but start feeling part of the experience.

Prindle describes it as:
"Like you just fell like putting on dark sunglasses and shaking your head back and forth like a heroin user might before the dark slumber of death rolls over."

Starostin describes it as:
"Keywords: 'organic', 'polyrhythmic', 'tribal', 'voodoo', 'dark', 'mystical', but far from the generic game 'Let's Pretend We're So Very Psychic''. Let it just grow on you."

Frank Zappa - You Are What You Is

From Markprindle.com:

"I already owned cheap or free copies of Hot Rats, Uncle Meat, We're Only In It For The Money, Fillmore East June 1971, Apostrophe (`), Strictly Commercial (a "best of" compilation I didn't review here) and Shut Your Mouth With A Guitar, but all of them just made me feel.. Mmm, semi-interested. Like, I could tell that one day I WOULD be a fan because a lot of it seemed really smart, but that day just hadn't come. But You Are What You Is made that day come. The only reason I bought it in the first place was because I was digging through a bunch of cheapy CD bins where the deal was "Buy 9, get a 10th free" and I'd already found 9. I honestly didn't expect to like it at all, but the Moon was shining on Sagitarrius that day because it ended up being my ticket into a splendid world unknown. Suddenly I "GOT" Zappa! And I wanted more more MORE MORE!!!"

Black Taj - Black Taj (2005)

Black Taj is the band the former members from Polvo created in early 00's in order to have freedom to pursuit new musical directions without being directly related to their old sound.

Well, like Polvo, Black Taj is also guitar-based. But, instead of indiesonicyouthesque music, you'll hear one of the best hardrock band that have come out in the last few years.

The relation to Led Zeppelin is obvious, and, at sometimes, even the guitars sound like taken off from a Zeppelin album, but, that's not a bad thing. On the contrary, it is one of the best thing about this album.

If you like Led Zeppelin and Sonic Youth, listen to this and you'll see what would their son sound like.

Stephen Malkmus - Stephen Malkmus (2001)

Stephen Malkmus is a former member of the indie-rock band Pavement. After the band disbanded, Malkmus went on to pursuit a solo career, and a very interesting one.

This is his first solo album and it sounds like pavement: creative and catchy indierock by un unquestionably talented fellow. Every song is good, believe me.

  1. "Black Book" – 4:23
  2. "Phantasies" – 2:40
  3. "Jo Jo's Jacket" – 4:01
  4. "Church on White" – 3:20
  5. "The Hook" – 3:03
  6. "Discretion Grove" – 3:14
  7. "Troubbble" – 1:40
  8. "Pink India" – 5:54
  9. "Trojan Curfew" – 4:06
  10. "Vague Space" – 2:56
  11. "Jenny and the Ess-Dog" – 2:45
  12. "Deado" – 3:37

Roky Erickson - The Evil One (1981)

Roky Erickson is a lunatic. It's not even a metaphor, he's literally a complete loon. In mid sixties he was the leadsinger for the 13th Floor Elevators, the band that might have started psychedelia. That's a lot already, but it doesn't end here.

In 1968 he started acting weird and speaking nonsense stuff. Roky was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and was sent to a mental hospital. From 1969 to 1972 he bounced from a sanatory to another receiving all kinds of wonderful treatments, such as this one:

Apparently all those lobotomies and shock treatments only made our dear Roky even more loonie. And this record, The Evil One, is its evidence.

Just look at those song titles: "Two Headed Dog", "I Think of Demons", "Don't Shake me Lucifer". I mean, you gotta be at least a bit crazy to write a slow romantic ballad entitled "I Walked With a Zombie".

Anyways, all those songs are pretty catchy and sound like postpunk meets psychedelic and heavymetal for a ride. It's pretty worthy, I promise.
