New Fred Anderson & Hamid DrakeFrom The River To The Ocean ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2007. Used ... $5.99
A fresh album from one of the stronger partnerships in avant garde jazz – sax titan Fred Anderson and drummer/percussionist Hamid Drake – joined by some of the finest Chicago based players for set of slowbuilding, generously spacious material that might be even better their previous album for Thrill Jockey! Anderson's sax and Drake's drumming are as intuitive to each other as ever, and some bits of the record have a dual bass sound that really pulls us in! Josh Abrams and Harrison Bankhead bring the bass, with a great cello part by Bankhead on one track, and Jeff Parker plays some nice guitar. A masterful record with more of an ensemble approach than its predecessor! 5 long (or longish), languorously gripping tracks: "Planet E", "Strut Time", "For Brother Thompson", "From The River To The Ocean" and "Sakti/Shiva".

New CalifoneHeron King Blues ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2004. Used ... $6.99
At risk of overselling the thing, we're going to go ahead and make a proclamation. (It's 100% true to our ears, so screw it!) We honestly can't think of a more consistently great series of releases in the rock-ish realm from one act, in a two year period, than Califone has produced between 2002 and 2004, lest we go all the way back to what Dylan did between '65 and '67. We've admired Califone since the great great Red Red Meat broke up, but with last year's Quicksand/Cradlesnakes and now Heron King Blues, they've really found a tuneful groove that previous records and live shows only hinted at. Tim Rutili and company's purely unique mix of spare, rural acoustic string-plucking, broken/fragmented organ and piano, hoarse and somewhat cryptic vocals from Rutili, and whispy tape loop effects are pretty much incomparable (and soon to ripped off by hundreds of followers, if that's not happening already.) If you're unfamiliar, Califone's pretty tough to describe, but if you dig early 70s Neil Young at his most stripped-down, and the experimental/tape-manipulating guise John Fahey wore for some of the better Takoma LPs, than you really can't go wrong here. The fact that this thing was written and recorded in only a couple of weeks seems like a small miracle. "Wingbone", "Trick Bird", "Sawtooth Sung A Cheater's Song", "Apple", "Lion & Bee", "2 Sisters Drunk On Each Other" and more. CD

CalifoneQuicksand/Cradlesnakes ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2003. Used ... $5.99
Califone perfects the meandering, deep blues-tinged psych-folk-rock electric and acoustic soul-baring Tim Rutili, Ben Massarella and co have been working on since the great Red Red Meat dissolved. There's a lot of soft, creaky melodies beneath all the clatter that cuts right to the bone – the group makes you work for it, but there's a helluva a lot of beauty to be dug here! Tracks include "One", "Horoscopic", Michigan Girls", "Your Golden Ass", "Town", "Mean Little Seed" and others. CD

Extra GoldenHera Ma Nono ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2007. Used ... $6.99
A sublime second album on Thrill Jockey from Extra Golden – a more cohesive blend Kenyan benga and reverent American groove rock! The globally stretched partnership of the group continues on in honor of the deceased co-founding guitarist/singer/composer Otieno Jagwasi for this one. Opiyo Bilongo steps in on guitar and vocals for the set, joining guitarists Ian Egelson and Alex Minoff, drummer/vocalist Onyango Wuod Omari and some guest musicians – this time recording in the US. This time out the benga music takes a more profound lead role in the overall groove, and the soulful rock parts have fewer lead moments – and a subtle, intertwined elemental influence overall. Great stuff! Titles include "Jakolando", "Obama" (dedicated to our senator who helped them get clearance to travel to the US), "I Miss You", "Night Runners", "Street Parade", "Brothers Gone Away", "Love Hijackers" and "Hera Ma Nono".

New Sorry BambaSorry Bamba Vol 1 – 1970 to 1979 ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1970s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful testament to the legacy of Malian singer, flute player and group leader Sorry Bamba – documenting his years leading the Kanaga Orchestra Of Mopti throughout the 1970s – and a great, vital release on Thrill Jockey! The region's musical heritage is intergral to Sorry Bamba's music, but it's also relevant and contemporary to its period and ours – with guitar, bass, organ and horns along with more earthy percussion. His style of songs is pretty amazing, too – and often done with a sense of humor that could be easy to overlook to outsiders – but there's no overlooking how great the music is. Beautifully done by Thrill Jockey, compilers Alex Minoff & Ian Eagleson – with input and insight from Sorry Bamba himself. Includes "Yayoroba", "Boro", "Gambari", "Astan Kelly", "Sekou Amadou", "Sayouwe", "Porry", "Aisse", "Bayadjourou" and "Sare Mabo". CD

New Chicago Underground DuoIn Praise Of Shadows ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another fine effort from the Chicago Underground Duo – multi-instrumentalists Chad Talyor and Rob Mazurek – and like the duo's earlier work on Thrill Jockey, it's a wonderful listen, that traipses through elements of Don Cherry-like jazz experimentation, and percussive, minimalist avant rock! The sound is uncategorizable in the best sense, and the duo has chops that devour most of their contempories. Another great one! Mazurek works on cornet, organ, celest, piano, harpsichord and more, and Taylor is drums, perussion, gongs vibe and more. Tracks include "In Praise Of Shadows", "Falling Awake", "The Glass House", "Cities Without Citadels", "Pangea", "Funeral Of Dreams" and "The Light Between". CD

New Sea & CakeOne Bedroom ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
The boys turn the whimsy back up a notch for their sweetly synth-soaked latest effort, and Prekop's voice has never been so confident and out front. The tunes seem longer and have a more languorous feel than their last couple records, but the hooks are just as sweet. It took a long while to come to the realization, but we don't know what we'd do without a new Sea & Cake record every couple of years – each one fits like a favorite sweater. As kind of a bonus track there's a nice electronic cover of Bowie's "Sound And Vision" that sounds really out of character for the usually predictable (but no less enjoyable) group. Other tracks include "Four Corners", "Left Side Clouded", "Hotel Tell", "Shoulder Length", "One Bedroom", "Interiors", "Mr. F", and "Try Nothing". CD
