    • Mutant
      Silently flitting between the light and dark of the mainstream and underground electronic music worlds, Arca has left a hauntingly frenzied stamp on releases as big as Kanye West's Yeezus as well as his own solo productions.

    • Listen: Ten Fé - 'In The Air' November 25, 2015
      Indie songwriting with a psychedelic kick...Every city has a mood, a flavour - but Berlin's is stronger than most. It's a place to get lost in, the city's vast history and lust for the future mingling in a space that suggests more than it states. Ben Moorhouse and Leo Duncan found themselves in Berlin, swapping ideas and dreams about music. Fo […]

Since then, the Manchester outfit have gently slipped back into the darkness, al […]

Now Playing in the Falcon’s Nest: The Neville Brothers – Yellow Moon

Posted by falconi5 on September 7, 2015

The Neville Brothers – Yellow Moon

yellowmoonIf you have some of your friends over and one is a funk lover, another is a blues hound, a third member of your posse likes good old gospel, and the rest of the group likes their music with a bit of a pop sheen, The Neville Brothers Yellow Moon is just the ticket. An appetizer that will cleanse the most discerning of palates.

Released in 1989 and produced by Daniel Lanois with Brian Eno on keyboards, this one goes from the supreme to the sublime at the blink of an ear.  The swampy groove of the title track, the all New Orleans down and dirty “Voodoo,” and the Link Wray classic “Fire and Brimstone” that features the Dirty Dozen Brass Band on horns, are highlights, but don’t stop there.

“The Ballad of Hollis Brown” goes low and slow, and you won’t have to go to church on Sunday after listening to “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” and “With God On Our Side,” a song that that floats into angelic territory courtesy of the beatific vocals of Aaron Neville.  “A Change is Gonna Come” is the best version you will ever hear this side of Sam Cooke, and the funky as all get out “Wild Injuns” will have you running, not walking to New Orleans.

Live Video of the Day: The Milk Carton Kids – Michigan (Austin City Limits)

Posted by falconi5 on June 19, 2014

milk cartonI have it on good authority that The Milk Carton Kids show in San Francisco was off the chain. For most of us that missed it, here is a superb quality live rendition of their song “Michigan” on Austin City Limits. For those that are not familiar with this group think Simon and Garfunkel for the new millennium. Thanks Chris, see you in a couple weeks.
