Salvatore Accardo "Vivaldi - The Four Seasons"

One of my favorite albums as well as a reference recording for me. Listening with the Opus 21 and I'm not disappointed.

The James Farm album is going to blow us all away. Next couple of months, latest. I hope.

They have a show in Portland, OR in late February and if they are not playing around here in that time frame, I think Claire and I might go. Maybe meet my robot bro, Smegs.

Listen to their stuff on the the myspace page, even though it will not give you the full effect.

I don't remember a set of eyes that intense in James Farm.

I don't remember a set of eyes that intense in James Farm.

He plays piano and was not facing us. You weren't ready for the intensity of James Farm in general, so I don't think you would have caught that spark. :)

But I do like The Afrobilly Sessions.

Now playing:

Mavis Staples -- You Are Not Alone

Highly buzzed and listening to the EC BA AD1 on the RS-1 and HP-2, I have to say this album sounds divine.

Got that album a few days back myself, still have to listen.

Thrice - The Illusion of Safety

First listen to anything from Thrice, ever. I like it so far. More punk influence in this one that I was expecting. I thought they were more progressive rock-like. No matter.

Enemy of the Sun, Caedium -- quite easily album of the week for me. Nicely complex metal without being "math metal", and the vocals aren't laughably bad.

Amplifier, The Octopus -- contemporary prog -- bombastic (in the Beatles/Flaming Lips way, not in the Mahler way), a little all-over-the-place...I like!
