I used to have a music blog (by guest blogger Peter)
But now I don't. Anyway, here's some stuff I figured I'd pass along:
I bought Sibylle Baier's Colour Green after reading this post on Gorilla vs Bear. There's a whole backstory to this album which I won't get into here but, more than 30 years since they were recorded, the songs were just released for the first time. Since I'm feeling lazy, I'd describe it as a female Nick Drake with less complicated guitar work.
Speaking of Germans, I first found Alpendub a few months ago and stumbled across them again tonight. As the name suggests, it's dub as performed by traditional alpine instruments. Augustus Pablo meets the Sound of Music? You decide. (via Tuning)
If French pop is your thing, Clothilde is worth checking out. BlowUpDoll is hosting her out of print album and I was quite obsessed with her for a while.
Lastly, I'm not sure how I missed this initially, but I just found the Sun Ra Batman and Robin album I've been unable to find in stores on Beware of the Blog. It's as fun as I imagined it to be.Posted by Peter at April 15, 2006 03:01 AM | TrackBack
