Listening to Ethiopiques vol4 by Mulatu Astatqe. I keep coming back to this album it's amazing, Crazy jazz rock, thin fuzzed up guitar solo's and arabian sounding horns. Amazing. I also just got 'Nigeria Rock Special: Psychadelic Afro-Rock & Fuzz Funk in 1970's Nigeria'. It is exactly what it says it is and amazing for it. Other than that i've been listening to The horrors, Sleepy sun, Woods, The Pink Mountaintops, Akron/Family, The Assemble head in Sunburst Sound, Karen Dalton, Wooden Shjips and Lee Hazlewood and Nancy sinatra. Not sure how I manage to fit anything else in really.
There is also a really good video for Two Weeks by Grizzly Bear out at the moment and also a track by Sharon Van Etton called For You which is really haunting and has an equally haunting video.
Finished the guitars and vocals of one track yesterday at Nova Studios, In again next saturday to record Bass and Keyboards. The songs we are recording are 'How can you take me dancing?' and 'The Lies". Going to Springboard festival tonight to see some bands and Playing on Sunday at 7:30 at the King Billy.
