Listening diary 20080821: This month’s emusic take

August 22, 2008

Album titles link to sample-laden purchase pages at various commercial servers.

Friend Opportunity by Deerhoof.  I love it.  It’s starting to sound like they’ve actually learned how to play their instruments, and it’s not interfering with what they do at all.

The Ellington Suites by Duke Ellington.  I dig it, and I’m still assimilating it, but for now I’m only recommending it if you already have the Far East Suite and the Afro-Eurasian Eclipse.

Mustafa Kandirali by Mustafa Kandirali.  Because there’s no such thing as enough Turkish Clarinet music.  Those are supposed to be funny Turkish i’s with no dots.  Thanks for the hot tip, Laura!

Instrumentals by the Nels Cline Singers.  I like it.  Pretty much exactly what I was expecting.

Looking forward to: Borrowed Arms by Two Foot Yard and Masada Book of Angels vol 11: Zaebos by Medeski Martin and Wood.
