Music of the Weeks 38 + 39

Skipped last week, 'though that was not due to a shortage of songs or albums as I've been listenng to plenty of good music lately. I'm late to the Jonatha Brooke record, which is both beautifully crafted and executed. The Henry Threadgill tracks that was posted on Destination-Out sound terrific and bode well for the album, and on the upcoming Lightning Bolt record, the wonderfully titled Earthly Delights, the duo occasionally slow things down, which may dissappoint those who enjoy them purely as an impact band. But fret not, their gung-ho instrumental post-hard core/thrash/punk/impro seems more purposeful as a result.

My "best of 2009-lists" needs to be updated. They've has barely been tweaked since mid-summer, and tens of records need to be added.

  • Jonatha Brooke: The Works (Bad Dog Records)
  • Henry Threadgill: "To Undertake My Concerns Open" and "After Some Time", This Brings Us To, Vol. 1 (Pi Recordings)
  • Vijay Iyer Trio: Historicity (ACT)
  • Lightning Bolt: Earthly Delights (Load Records)
  • Digital Primitives: Hum Craclke & Pop (Hopscotch)
  • Deer Tick: Born on Flag Day (Partisan)
  • Pill: "Glass" (4180: The Prescription (mixtape))
  • Pixie Lott: "Here We Go Again" (Mercury)
