His third album, 's The Swimming Hour , surprisingly found the Bowl of Fire turning to pop music, and with excellent results. As bandmembers remained active in their various other projects, the band continued and work on a follow-up began in To tide fans over, Bird self-released a limited-edition EP, Fingerlings , which documented live performances of some old and new songs by the band and solo.
He switched to Fat Possum for 's Armchair Apocrypha and 's Noble Beast , both of which were ambitious and eclectic albums even by Bird's standards. Lloyd Miller at AM 1 comment:.

The mission of Preservation Hall, to showcase and nurture one of America's greatest indigenous, national, cultural treasures - New Orleans Jazz - is as important today as it was when Preservation Hall officially opened its doors in Even New Orleans' own legendary Louis Armstrong , who once said, "Preservation Hall, now that's where you'll hear all the greats," is transported through the decades and can be heard trading licks and vocals on an updated version of his classic "Rockin' Chair.
Preservation Hall, located in the French Quarter just three blocks from the Mississippi River, remains the intimate veune it originally was when it opened in as a performance space dedicated to honoring, celebrating and perpetuating New Orleans jazz.
The building has no running water or air conditioning, and the only seating accomodations are six benches and a few cushions strewn about the worn wooden floor. Its raw and weather-beaten exterior remains unpainted. A half-century later, Preservation Hall continues to ensure the cultural legacy and the future of this beautiful tradition by allowing young and old to collaborate together. Preservation was spearheaded by RED Distribution, w ho approached Preservation Hall for their blessing and collaboration.
We thank all the wonderful artists who contributed their time and talent. Labels: andrew bird , ben jaffe , benefit , jim james , pete seeger , PHJB , preservation , tom waits.

A much-loved member of our family has passed.

If you get a chance to hear the band play, please go. I always feel as if though my soul has been cleansed when I hear them play While waiting, though, we meandered towards the Preservation Hall where the Tao Rodriguez-Seeger Band were a few songs into their set.
Simple folk melodies matched with clever instrumentation were the backbone of Rodriguez-Seeger's group, and it was a nice change of pace from the hip-hop set we just witnessed. Grandson to famed folk singer Pete Seeger, Tao is carrying on the family torch with an updated form of his grandfathers music. We didn't have the chance to stay long, but I left impressed with his work and with the plan to check out more upon my return home. The Preservation Hall-Stars are a perfect example of that.
Their Friday set at the Preservation Hall stage Of course it was was a booty shaking good time. As the crowd began to form under the tent, the set began with a New Orleans styled parade that continued throughout the majority of the set.
This got the crowd moving as rain began, which would be steady throughout the rest of the night, making things a little sloppy. I stuck around for a little while, but had to cut out a little early to make it to The Black Keys.

Meanwhile, another of his hypnotic electronic pieces courtesy of Sydney's Preservation. Meanwhile, a couple of remixes which you can download free from here.
It's more what you'd expect of a remix, but no less successful for that. The only co-worker with Keith Fullerton Whitman at Keith's Mimaroglu Music Sales , Mullen has been creating weird electronic emanations on various cassette and CDR editions for a while, and his latest is on the legendary Digitalis Ltd. Extra-lo-fi and fascinating. I've loved the music of Dunk Murphy since before he was Sunken Foal , as he made some exquisite crunchy idm as half of Ambulance.
His new mini-album on Acroplane again features his voice and guitar along with the electronics, and is as lush and off-kilter as ever. And after reprises from Tidy Kid and AXXONN again, we have time for one track from last week's incredible discovery, Motion Sickness of Time Travel — more shyly blurting rustic synthesiser lines and her mystic vocals; such beguiling stuff.
Evening all! Lots of great music for you on this second-last Sunday of the first month of the year! I've started with two artists who did stellar shows at the Spiegeltent at Sydney Festival this week, with a favourite track of each which they failed to play at their gigs. Such is life, of course. Owen Pallett , back when he was Final Fantasy, put in an entry to Tomlab's Alphabet Series of 7"s, with two of my favourite tracks of his.
It's an absolutely gorgeous piece of music, and it's just lucky that she has lots of other beautiful tracks too, since I still haven't seen her play it live! Her debut release on cult label Digitalis came out on cassette last year, and has now been re-released on vinyl. Meanwhile later on we'll hear some older stuff that she's now put up on her Bandcamp.
But first, let us hear of the genius of Fabio Orsi. Italy's produced so much great experimental music, and Fabio's firmly in the camp of drone meets post-rock and electronic I also featured some tunes from his excellent 3CD set random shades of day from last year.
These two make a pretty triumphant start to for the label. Keeping it electronic and synth-laden is Cex , with a beatless track from his Evargreaz EP. And back with the Digitalis label, Sweden's Roll The Dice give us an absolute epic of growing synth motion. Sydney's Ghoul are finally getting their first "real" releases out, after having a free download EP self-released back in which seems to have disappeared now.
We heard the title track from that EP, a nice experimental, instrumental track, and then one of the hits from their new EP. People have been talking about the dubstep-influenced beat to Ghoul's "3 Mark", and it sortof seems far-fetched to me - except that it is at the right tempo and mixed in perfectly with the Tunnidge track that followed it.
Full points for proving myself wrong I guess! Very deep and dark track courtesy of the very reliable Deep Medi label. It's dark, dark, dark, and you can download it right now for free from Caribou's SoundCloud! We then head over to Icarus' own SoundCloud , where they've put up some old and some I'm guessing new tracks for free download. Harking back to their drum'n'bass origins with a second amen break rinseout, we then have something in their more recent sound — electro-acoustic sound art, with deeply-buried and obfuscated beat patterns Here they remix their friends and label-mates Psuche.
Yet another free download from Bandcamp because it is a useful artist- and punter-friendly service comes from LA collective Friends of Friends , who at the end of put out a compilation of affiliated artists doing tasty pop mashups. Dead Can Dance? The Bulgarian Women's Choir? Awesome anyway. While we're on the "pop" tip, back with Ghoul we have a more spaced-out jam, which should be a big hit this year.
C'mon, make it so! And two more tracks from Fabio Orsi , a heavily distorted track from the new album oh so good! You can see the original releases via the links in the playlist — there's a cornucopia of music from her to explore, and while the Digitalis album possibly tops it all, there are many wonders to be found in there.
Two Aussie releases round out the show. Brisbane's The Rational Academy keep it rather arcane with a live version of "Satan" recorded in Japan, debut release for new label Bon Voyage. Even more than last year, this will be the year of Bandcamp I think, so of course this is also available over there.
Combined with the spices, this creates a licorice burst finish to complement its robust taste. So as sunset creeps closer and closer to the end of the workday, bring your warm layers and your close friends to The Sharp Edge for an Imperial or a few , because just like those perfect summer nights, this regal pumpkin ale will be gone before you know it. Jessie Seager and his family opened Point Brugge in the winter of Located in the old Point Restaurant, they renovated the interior but left the original sign from the historic building.
Inside is a cozy blend of exposed brick, modern tables. With two levels, the restaurant lends itself equally well to a romantic evening for two or a large family gathering. Friday and Saturday night, the little place gets flooded with eager patrons, according to Jessie, and the line often pours out onto the sidewalk.
Principal among them is Moulin Brugge. Kevin highly recommends them, and personally prefers the red curry sauce with coconut milk, lime juice, basil and cilantro. Apparently patrons heed his advice as Point Brugge serves lbs.
If you can manage, try to save room for dessert. Deciding between Belgian chocolate cake and rich dark chocolate sauce drizzled over creamy vanilla ice cream can be difficult, but without a doubt, no one knows how to finish a meal quite like the Dutch.

Upon entering Bossa Nova, the first thing to grab your attention will be the beautiful oval shaped bar that sits in the middle of the comfort lounge.

The tapas menu includes Crab Cakes with a coconut-curry sauce, Salmon Ceviche and the classic Chorizo with herb roasted potatoes and a Cabernet-Dijon.

More than wines by the glass. Eclectic yet approachable West Coast cuisine. Through subsequent years of practice, Collins developed an acute awareness for the engineering behind a piece of clothing that shows through in the integrity she has for her craftsmanship and for her customers.
Even during the slower summer months Collins keeps busy, making evocative clothing from the sights, sounds, and interactions that inspire her. Her Sharpsburg studio doubles as a showroom and currently houses organza-wrap evening gowns for an upcoming fashion show in Cork, Ireland.
On the home front, she has been designing holiday season cocktail dresses for Lawrenceville boutique Sugar. Zoe Collins has come a long way in the past two decades and is refreshingly content with her career. It begs the question as to whether, like Paris, New York should have a version of Vogue all to itself where all the sexy, conceptual stuff could be displayed for the rest of the country to look at and roll its eyes?
Further amenities include restaurants and an in-room dining service, as well as a roof terrace and library bar that proves quite tempting after an evening out on the town. With something for everyone, Le Germain is the perfect place to stay for a short get away, or a long weekend.

In terms of London hotels, St. Make sure to drop by the Light Bar pictured to enjoy some of the ambience, as well as their signature Raspassion Martinis. With some people hesitant to even walk through the area, who would ever think about living or shopping there?
