    Dang it, these won’t play on the iPad. Tomorrow.

    But, you guys…the new Afghan Whigs is really, REALLY good. Can’t stop playing it.

    I’m also listening to Flashbacks and Dream Sequences: the Story of the Moles, which compiles the complete output of the early 90s Australian band. Lots to like, if you dig Flying Nun stuff like Clean/Chills/Bats, or GbV, or Syd Barrett, or just jangle-punk-psych-pop in general.

    So, right up my alley.Report

    Ha. My sweetie’s partner for many years (he and his wife stood with us at our wedding) sang the theme song for a Roger Moore non-Bond spy film, Gold.

    You may know this singer, Jimmy Helms, better as a member of London Beat. Probably one of the most gifted musicians I’ve ever met; extraordinary trumpet/flugelhorn player, talented composer, and stage presence that exudes sex appeal. Being an old hippie chick, perhaps my favorite work is the backup vocals he sang on David Essex’s Rock On — they totally make the tune.

    Here he is, on a more recent project — Eumir Deodato’s The Crossing. Dude’s got a voice like velvet.

    I’ve been taking YouTube’s advice and listening to the Robert Glasper Experiment. It’s interesting. They’re really really good but I haven’t decided yet if I like them or not.

      Yeah, that’s the sort of thing that I enjoyed listening to, but I’m not sure if I need to listen to it again, so I see where you’re coming from when you say you haven’t decided.Report
