WoW - NEW thread.  The "next phase" in/on COVID? 
For Brian and Beach Boy fans specifically - but GETS technical.  The last hour and half of this is Mark Linett and gets into sections of how Brian recorded and some things that he brought. They gave away their prize to this with "what's your favorite Beach Boys' song?". 


For Larry, and keeping the Cobain sound alive - I have to admit that I played a LOT during the height of this lock-down time. At around 10 mins - the story behind songs begins


Alright - some MUSIC


Early DM - as she was creating it in Byron Bay, AU

Shows how she had it studio ready in her busk. Off course it has been the overplayed song of the year, but...still sounds good. 
Listen to her speech.
youtube.com/watch?v=tkZ9ptuO9k4
Watch her basketball skills
youtube.com/watch?v=hpSMVbpwgk0
HER performance/live stream during C-VID time 

Seeing what instruments that she loops from. 

Larry, the orange menace can only hold over us for two-plus months elected and then his own personal reign of terror as he refuses to leave - rigged, hoax, fake.  We need to heal this nation and with some REAL leadership. This craziness cannot go on. His fear tactics are starting to show.

Al -- I'd never heard of Dayglow or Tones and I (although maybe "Dance Monkey" -- 1.2 billion YouTube views). I should get out more.

Quote:
Dayglow is the project of Austin, TX based 20-year-old Sloan Struble. Energetic and eternally hopeful, Dayglow’s debut album, “Fuzzybrain,” was recorded in Struble’s childhood bedroom and released on the eve of his move to college in the fall of 2018. The album quickly picked up momentum, being lauded for its refreshing optimism and eventually prompting Ones To Watch to identify Dayglow as “The Antidote for Dark Pop.”

Writing, performing, producing, and mixing the album on his own, “Fuzzybrain” is a direct window into Struble’s mind and serves as a testament to the DIY spirit. The album remains cohesive yet exploratory, noticeably benefiting from the sole creative vision and sincerity of its author. From molding a portrait of his own head out of clay for the album cover to shooting the music video for first single, “Can I Call You Tonight?,” with nothing more than a green screen and an enthusiastic hometown friend, Struble continues to evolve within the world he’s created. Throughout its modest 10-song track listing, the raw honesty of “Fuzzybrain” remains constant and renders the album invitingly replayable. Several million streams later, now with a history of sold out shows; it’s clear that Dayglow has filled a void. [Spotify]


Also, thanks for the encouraging words (let's all vote as early as possible, or on Nov. 3rd, one way or another).


Some recent things (the oldest from 2015) I've been listening to, all in a similar style, perhaps good for mental relaxation in troubled times.

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith -- "Carrying Gravity"

Anadol -- "Görünmez Hava"
youtube.com/watch?v=DW0avFq-wH8

Saloli -- "Ice World"
youtube.com/watch?v=520upHXyDXg

C. dal F. again -- "No Trace"

Heard Absofacto yesterday


A throwback, that I've always loved:


AND another throwback with a few pronoun problems

Adam Schlesinger (bass player and founder) - of FoW passed from COVID in April.
Official video - youtube.com/watch?v=dZLfasMPOU4  Makes Hot For Teacher G-rated

OR do we just need Surfrajettes

Al -- We do need the Surfrajettes (although not as much as the suffragettes -- whose political descendants need to vote this year).

That's very sad about Adam Schlesinger. He was only 52. I used Fountains of Wayne (that was Wayne, N.J.) the first time I hosted the battle. Their "Hackensack" (N.J.) came in second to Skeeter Davis's classic.




Some new stuff:

Jack Oblivian and the Dream Killers -- "Lone Ranger of Love"
youtube.com/watch?v=YSeVPJFXrbs

Lewsberg -- "Cold Light of Day"
youtube.com/watch?v=45luTFFA2rE

Tjo (Tara Jane O'Neil) -- "Cruel Summer"
youtube.com/watch?v=_ST-smiZZSM

Green/Blue -- "Find a New World"
youtube.com/watch?v=-qpyzz_MEdA

Luke Schneider -- "invicta affectio"
youtube.com/watch?v=jODHGGDD1Dk


PS:  Skeeter Davis -- "The End of the World"

A philosophy professor at the U. of Chicago posted this, probably for non-philosophical reasons.

The Bobby Fuller Four -- "Misirlou" (live)


Still my BF4 favorite: "Let Her Dance"

Going digital has made it so much easier to skip disappointing tracks.

For example, you can listen to 80% of a favorite album, without wondering why they put the other 20% on there.

8/10 of Buffalo Springfield Again (1967)

Mr. Soul
Everydays
Expecting To Fly
Bluebird
Hung Upside Down
Sad Memory
Rock & Roll Woman
Broken Arrow

(Consigned to the dustbin of history: "A Child's Claim To Fame" and "Good Time Boy")

Larry,

Hearing and meeting Richie Furay a few years back and thinking this was a third of the legendary band!

Now back to Dayglow and see HOW he made the song  shared here last week.  Kind of his own Brian-way of making current music:

NO vocal plug-ins, which I thought he had used. ^^^^^^^
Remember that he was in high school when he made the album: Fuzzybrain

INTERVIEW:  He explains how he writes them AND the video for CICYT and he's stoked to play with the dudes:  youtube.com/watch?v=lW5RG60Xw70
The song LIVE - the fans KNOW the song and lyric:

Ends it in French ^^^^^^^^
HERE - he does I Will by the Beatles with a shuffle rhythm, harmony vocal and claps and whistles. Pretty guitar part
youtube.com/watch?v=XASmg35Tz3A
He had to had been 15 when he did this based on the date: 


Larry, with the Trump-convention going on now - and NOT watching a second of it, I have to echo the Bangles: "I won't feel bad at all"



AND just discovering The Regrettes:

Al -- Cool videos you posted. Watching the way Dayglow made a track made me feel even older and supremely less talented than usual!


Speaking of older, X (the LA punk band) released their first studio album in 27 years. It's called ALPHABETLAND and it's very good.

X -- "ALPHABETLAND" 


"Water and Wine" from the same album
youtube.com/watch?v=oOVakrdlSjw


Plus an older favorite:

Wilco -- "Outta Mind (Outta Sight)" (1996)
youtube.com/watch?v=CtIkIBmdNDU


Plus one bonnie posted a year ago:

Marlon Williams (with Aldous Harding) -- "Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore" (2018)
youtube.com/watch?v=WsJIDptF-2c


Something else: Greil Marcus (famous author and rock/culture critic) has a monthly column, now at the Los Angeles Review of Books. Interesting reading and where I heard about X's new album.

https://lareviewofbooks.org/contributor/greil-marcus


PS: Yes, they had a convention. It was sad to see him violating the White House, which belongs to all of us, by festooning it with his name.

Larry - five man band - but THREE legends - who expanded the musical art form for all of us: Richie, Stephen and Neil Y. 

One more go on The Regrettes as I'm thinking that all is not lost in the world as some people ARE getting it.  Lydia Night is the lead of this group and is outspoken but still only 19 and was playing seriously since she was 16, but it's REALLY a four piece group, young and talented

What they have in their bags: youtube.com/watch?v=MTFvUlpUEiM
L
ove and life (their outlooks on this are amazing) youtube.com/watch?v=JRQywdBntp0
B
ack to the MUSIC - when they were 16

LIVE and acoustic last year at this time - I just think that they are the REAL deal:

(I Dare You - I posted last week, Dress Up - was up top here)
As if they can't play live acoustic - I Dare You at Summer Sonic in Tokyo

Jack Payne and His Orchestra -- "Down Sunnyside Lane"
youtube.com/watch?v=bblVdZGESuw

Orlando and his Gleneagles Hotel Orchestra  -- "Love Is Good for Anything That Ails You"
youtube.com/watch?v=iLqCAMoaDCs

Al Bowlly -- "Roll Along Prairie Moon"

Okay Larry, NOW I have to watch this sometime.

And EVERYONE is older than The Regrettes.


AND for us all - if only we give it a chance - our country is in a mess, listen to Louis and some positivity:

Al -- I haven't watched the original BBC Pennies From Heaven TV series in decades, maybe because I'm afraid I won't love it as much now. But the DVD is next to the TV, just waiting.

Bob Hoskins and Cheryl Campbell were both brilliant in it. A moment in the classroom with Cheryl:

youtube.com/watch?v=vbw6TP7JxuQ


Al Bowlly & the Ray Noble Orchestra -- "The Very Thought of You" (#1 in 1934)


Nat "King" Cole -- "The Very Thought of You" (1958)
youtube.com/watch?v=HcRQiNHrsoQ

Ella Mae Morse -- "Cow Cow Boogie" (#1 in 1942)
youtube.com/watch?v=ANe5fgD-B2E

The Judds -- "Cow Cow Boogie" (1987)
youtube.com/watch?v=Y_3LzK25O44

Neil Young -- "Harvest Moon" (live 1992)
youtube.com/watch?v=TPRHW_mScP0

Sunflower Bean -- "Harvest Moon" (2016)
youtube.com/watch?v=voO3wnJxUp8



PS:  The 1981 movie had its moments, but was nowhere near as engaging as the TV series. One of those moments: Christopher Walken dancing.
