    • Track Of The Day 7/10 - PROSE October 7, 2015
      'Mountains'PROSE are telling stories. The Manchester group have a clear thread running through each song, with each track becoming a gripping melodrama in its own right. Which isn't to say that the band take things too seriously. There's a lightness of touch at work here, one that emphasises the humanity within their songwriting. New EP […]
    • Glass Animals, Joey Bada$$ Leap Into The Studio October 7, 2015
      Check out 'Lose Control'Glass Animals recently signed a new deal with Caroline/Wolftone, and promptly went back into the studio to work on fresh ideas. Given the chance to work with Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ the group seized the opportunity, with the Beast Coast rapper spitting over their crushed hip-hop beats. The results are online now. 'L […]
    • Seth Troxler To Cook For Amsterdam's Homeless October 7, 2015
      During ADE...Amsterdam Dance Event is one of the biggest showcases in the electronic world, a festival that attracts countless thousand fans, delegates and artists. This year, Seth Troxler is aiming to try something a little different. ADE and the 10,000 HOURS foundation have launched a new partnership, expanding the DJ Cook Off to fresh realms. DJs will be […]
    • Kendrick Lamar Salutes Eazy-E October 7, 2015
      Rapper pens moving letter...Kendrick Lamar has always been open about his influences, frank about his points of inspiration. The rapper interviewed N.W.A. earlier this year, highlighting their influence on his own career. Now, Kendrick Lamar has penned a piece about the late Eazy-E, and how knowing N.W.A. were from Compton helped inspire him to make music. T […]
    • Watch: Bob Dylan Chats To His Computer October 7, 2015 new IBM Watson advertIBM recently launched a new question and answering service, which they have titled IBM Watson. Launching an ad campaign around the service, IBM have placed a new clip online featuring none other than Bob Dylan. It's a slightly surreal video, with Bob Dylan seated in a library, chewing the fat with his laptop. Asking the servic […]
    • Premiere: Surf Rock Is Dead - 'Never Be The Same' October 6, 2015
      Softly hued indie pop with a surf edge...Funny how surfing has transformed itself into one of the most musical of pastimes. Out there on the waves, little can be heard above the roar of the emotion with intense concentration blotting out all other sounds. It's a recurring motif in music, however. Surf Rock Is Dead have clearly been near a board or two, […]
    • Premiere: Holtoug - 'Stay In Love' October 6, 2015
      Copenhagen-based producer...Copenhagen is flourishing as a centre for creative arts - and Holtoug is at the centre of it. A rising producer, his offbeat take on electronic pop works both on the dancefloor and on the radio. Melodic yet cerebral, physical yet easy on the ear, the electronic artist's output continually blurs the edges in the most contagiou […]
    • Premiere: The Island Club - 'Paper Kiss' October 6, 2015
      Dreamy Brighton newcomers...The Island Club are based in Brighton, a suitably artistic hub for a young group with lofty ambitions. Gorgeous, bleached out indie pop with a neat rock twist, The Island Club recall those early Peace demos, or even the more ethereal side of Tame Impala. New cut 'Paper Kiss' impacts on November 20th and it's a glori […]
    • Premiere: Heathered Pearls - 'Interior Architecture Software' (Physical Therapy Strength Remix) October 6, 2015
      Glistening, expansive techno...It's a common trope to envision sound as a structure. Heathered Pearls though, has taken this one step further. New release 'Body Compexity' links each track to an imagined three-dimensional space, but one that could never feasibly exist - a bit like Escher drawings, but for techno. “The album is about re-imagini […]
    • Premiere: Meridian Dan - 'Hot For Me Now' (Calyx And Teebee Remix) October 6, 2015
      Straight up ruffneck drum 'n' bass...Meridian Dan is a grime mainstay, an MC who stuck true to the sound and is reaping the rewards of the creative flux now rippling through the scene. 'German Whip' became a breakout anthem, a hype tune that managed to make the transition from system rinser to chart smash. Grabbing a clutch of MOBO nomina […]

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.
