Music I Liked And Didn't - 5/4/08 - 5/18/08
Adds - 3
NOTHING PEOPLE: Anonymous LP (S-S) - Sorry, I couldn't find any cover art for this excellent new LP yet. No surprize, I guess, as I was privileged to be the first paying customer to have a copy, getting it directly from a band member after he picked them up! An amazing dose of punk/kraut/psych grooves!
V/A: Nigeria Rock Special: Psychedelic, Afro-Rock & Fuzz Funk In 1970s Nigeria 2LP (Soundway)
V/A: Radio Myanmar (Burma) CD (Sublime Frequencies) - Another fascinating release from Sub Freq. An ironicly timely sonic portrait, too, of a land about which little is known, but is currently the focus of much attention in the aftermath of the devastating cyclone that recently hit the country. The political messages were especially interesting/chilling.

GRAILS: Take Refuge In Clean Living CD (Important) - Grails have been one of my favs over the past few years, but their latest really left me cold. A big disappointment. These black tar prophets shouldn't have taken refuge in clean living, as their art has surely suffered for it!
