Some Kraut Rock! Music is more than just a melody, or a collection of notes!

The sound quality is not so HiFi as one would like but the instrumentality is quite diferent to the usa/brit norm of the day.



May have posted this before but here it is again! It is worth a watch as it does explain much about post war Germany, and how generations mold their own culture, against the old! .... Werner Hertzog!!!!!



And thus Electronica begins!



But apart from Stravinsky - lets keep it Germanic!



So there is a link, thru' time via a changing mindset, using the tools available - the chain of events and influences are a composition in of itself, that bring us update - some would say this is an example of evolution! Pah!

All that though leads to Tangerine Drean and Can - mmmm! A synthesis of thought, thru' a history - what is one's Frequency Kenneth - ?... becomes a matter of perspective ,a retention and an application. After all a note, is just a moment in time - its all good!

Didn't have time to watch all in their entirety, Trypcil. But I did like the comment from Wittgenstein regarding his belief that 'Western civilization had accepted a general faith in science as a solution to the problems of life.'

"People nowadays think that scientists exist to instruct them while poets and musicians exist to give them pleasure. The idea that the latter have something to teach them, that does not occur to them."

Yes! Much is lost when something is gained - a progress trap, perhaps!

I've been listening to a lot of the Louvin Bros. lately. Let's kickstart this ol' thread again, shall we?

Tex' and guys, always good to kick the can further down the road.

India Ramey - Drowned Town. Most of my favorite bodies of water in TX are dammed up valleys where towns once thrived and cemeteries still rest. The album is pretty dark. Makes me appreciate the blessings of "normal" life.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A10PSWlMlac

Phoebe Hunt - Lint Head Gal. Wish I could catch one of her shows with Dori Freeman - who has a new album due in Oct.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCTfrzwUJsQ

Yuli Mayor from America's Got Talent:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39IX...youtu.be&t=38s
Rough start on her audition, she sings a backup song:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MaUa...utu.be&t=3m36s





And this showed up in the mail.

Great stuff!

This lady is from my area, in fact, she and her partner are patients at the dental office that my wife manages. Brooke gave her a copy of her CD last week and I found a few of her songs on YouTube. This one is written by Amos Lee but the others on her CD are written by her. Not bad at all...

I liked Windows Are Rolled Down, Tex. Looks like she's going to be in Taylor in December.

Shifting gears... to some daydream, zone out, droning stuff. And some earphones-on task music. Some familiar licks in there.

She played in Rockdale, about 16 miles away last weekend. She told my wife, while at the dentist, that they had a packed house. We probably would've checked it out had we not been out of town. Maybe we'll see her in Taylor.

Marty Stuart

Do we have any Marty Stuart fans here? I've always liked ol' Marty, "He's country to the bone, but he don't wear no hat!". His newest (?) album is last year's "Way Out West". Man, has that thing got a hook in me. It sounds great from start to finish, produced by Mike Campbell of Tom Petty's Heartbreakers. Lot's of great twangy, reverb guitar work from Marty's guitarist Kenny Vaughn that runs the gamut from rockabilly to hard country. It's a good one.

Whole lot of highway (with a million miles to go)



Mojave:



Old Mexico:

I remember seeing him play in Lester Flatt's band many years ago. Definitely a talented musician back then. Good to see that he has since become a successful singer/songwriter/recording artist.

His bass player in the current lineup is Chris Scruggs, Earl's grandson. I caught them on "Bluegrass Underground" last week, damned great band!

Programming my favorite radio stations into the work truck - came across this song on a Tejano station I was tuning through.

Los Askis - Ay Mi Corzon
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1WbwLx2Q9Q

Dang, that's El Condor Pasa. Wait, no it's not. Heeey, I like this. Shazam failed to recognize it so I recorded the tail end of it on the phone. Later checked the station website and - only THAT block of songs was missing from their recent playlist. No luck on Googling the words.

Fast foward to today at the job site... new building construction. One of the GC's guys is singing Spanish and I drop what I'm doing and play the song for him. His eyes light up - no, he didn't know the song or artist, but he knew who probably would and grabbed my arm and drug me over to the guy. Sure enough, he knew my song! Awesome. Gracias, amigo.

I listen to a lot of Schlagersahne from Antenne Bayern via the internet.

That's German pop and traditional folk music for those of you who don't schlager. Not necessarily brass band music, but that is also included.
