Some mellow stuff for Sunday
So, it's Sunday, so time for two very different artists to be foistered upon you.
First up, legendary member of the Incredible String Band, Robin Williamson.
I had been aware of the Incredible String Band for a long time, but hadn't really closely listened to any of their albums, until I read a feature in The Wire a few months ago on Robin Williamson. There were six tracks of his solo stuff on their site, so I devoured these and set about sampling all the albums through my local library. See what you think of the bard:
From Skirting the River Road
Robin Williamson -'The Four Points Are Thus Beheld.' mp3
Robin Williamson -'The Journey.' mp3
From The Iron Stone
Robin Williamson -'Bacchus.' mp3
Robin Williamson -'The Climber.' mp3
From The Seed At Zero
Robin Williamson -'The Seed At Zero.' mp3
Robin Williamson -'The Barley.' mp3
And now for something completely different...
I don't know if you would call Maps shoegazing or Electronica or both, even, but i think they would appeal to fans of both genres. I love these three tracks, and think you should give these a spin (from the album We Can Create:
Maps-'You Don't Know Her Name.' mp3
Maps-'It Will Find You.' mp3
As always, if you like what you hear, check out you local independent record shop.
Have a good week!
