LIVING THE DREAM #010Who is free tomorrow SATURDAY-AUGUST 29-2020 to attend a ZOOM meeting with TONY LEVIN, PAT MASTELOTTO, MARKUS REUTER, GARY HUSBAND & LEONARDO PAVKOVIC of MoonJune?
To attend, please subscribe to 'Living The Dream':
We will be talking about the brand new Stick Men's album OWARI, and the whole story behind the band's one-show-only-on-the-9-dates-tour in Japan, China & Hong Kong, which only happened in Nagoya, Japan, on February 28, 2020, at the Blue Note, one day before the complete lockdown of all music, cultural & sports venues in the Country of the Rising Sun. It was the end of an era, and the beginning of another one. The world has changed forever since then.
Markus Reuter will preview a few tracks for all the "ZOOMers", and during the chat, Leonardo Pavkovic from MoonJune will unleash all the BandCamp buttons and OWARI album will be available for pre-orders in multiple formats: CD Hard Cover Book, 2LP gatefold 180 grams vinyl, Cassette, HD Download 24bit, MasterTape, and OWARI t-shirt.
Mike Keneally says:
Coming fairly dang soon (October 23 is fairly dang soon, yeah?): "Order of Magnitude - Empath Live Vol. 1," a live document of the Devin Townsend gig we did at The Roundhouse in London last December. Different formats involve different combinations of Blu-Ray, CD, vinyl, postcards, and things. I loved this tour so dagdamn much I can still taste it in my bloodveins. Here's a song that will be included in "Order of Magnitude," and the song is called "GENESIS." Thank you for reading. I love you for reading. Actually I love you unconditionally, whether you read this or not.

TELL YOUR FRIENDS (REMIXED & REMASTERED), AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE SEPTEMBER 25THBob Lanzetti - "Anomynous" was the first tune I wrote upon moving to NY in 2006. It was written entirely on piano and was an experiment to see if I could write something solely by ear. Meaning the chords don’t really relate to each other logically in any sort of traditional sense. I just moved from one sound to another intervallically until I found what sounded “right” to me.
Today, we released Bob's tune "Anomynous" on all digital platforms for the first time. Enjoy the remixed and remastered live-in studio version that was recorded 10 years ago.
"Tell Your Friends, Remixed and Remastered" is available for pre-order at the Snarky Puppy webshop.
A new album (available for pre-order), a new video (to qB's single 'Mind Your Head') featuring Morgan Ågren on drums, new tour dates, and a re-designed website.

Third Man Records and Jack White are excited to announce an online auction featuring guitars, amplifiers, personal items, stage equipment and other one-of-a-kind items from the label’s archives and Jack White’s musical career and collection.

The auction will take place via Online Nashville Auctions from Wednesday, August 26 at 9am CST to Sunday, August 30 at 9pm CST. A portion of proceeds will go to benefit the John Peel Centre, Gideon's Army, and the Detroit Phoenix Center.

El Negocito records will be releasing an album by the Raf Vertessen Quartet.
Bandcamp says :
You can often judge an artist by the company he or she keeps, and drummer-composer Raf Vertessen keeps excellent company, indeed. Born and raised in Belgium, he came to Brooklyn in 2016, quickly developing close mentor relationships with such key avant-jazz figures as Joe Morris, Joe McPhee, Ingrid Laubrock and Ches Smith.
Now, Vertessen presents his debut on record, LOI, featuring a band with trumpeter Adam O'Farrill, tenor saxophonist Anna Webber and bassist Nick Dunston – all fixtures on the New York scene.

The YouTube info said :
Frank Zappa gave this record to my Aunt, Miss Christine of the GTOS. Its a rare demo version of one of the songs from the GTOS album Mercy's Tune (I have a Paint Brush in my Hand to Color a Triangle) before Mercy sang it with the full band that Zappa used for the song. Lowell George sang this rare demo.
Written by Miss Mercy. This is a song about a lovers triangle which involves Brian Jones, Bernardo B.T.O and Miss Mercy.
This demo 45 rpm record came from my Aunts personal record collection. Same song on both sides.

- phlox: keri
(2017, cd, estonia, mkdk records)
Sax and violin playing melody lines unisono, a powerful rhythm section, a bit of chaos, and a lot of madness.
This is good.
Let me rephrase that. This is excellent.
- sundays & cybele: gypsy house
(2015, lp, japan, guru guru brain)
Released on the Guru Guru Brain record label, the album got issued in different editions.
A very pleasant surprise.
Jimi Hendrix isn't far away.
I like it a lot.
Mike Keneally has started a Patreon account meaning that you can get access to audio and video material after a subscription.
More info here:
Also, Mike is working on his new solo album but he did find the time to share this nice little video :
A few weeks ago, Marc Bonilla and I made a video of Ravel’s “Prelude” from “Le Tombeau De Couperin.” It’s an acoustic guitar arrangement we came up with in the early ‘90s for Marc’s American Matador album, but at the behest of his label, Marc played both parts on the record. Now, our duet version can be heard! And seen!
June 26, Mats (Öberg) and Morgan (Agren) did broadcast a live concert on Youtube.
It was fabulous.
For those who missed, those who want to hear it again, those who want to support Mats & Morgan, the audio recording of this concert has been made available through Bandcamp.

A message from the Off Records label :
Alinovsky (featuring Pierre Vervloesem)
After '4' (see OVD026), this is '5'!
Alinovsky recorded again in Merida (Yucatan) some electronic tracks using also this time some mobile recordings from Asia and a portion of a violin played by Phoebe Tsang (see OUC019) on track 4.
And again like on his album '4', Pierre Vervloesem added his genius touch of mixing, more rhythms and heavy basses.
The result is yet another powerful dance-trance-experimental-electro-minimal house-future something! Enjoy!
