Yesterday I listened to

Super db - Ecoute Ca 

....They said it's some mix of Earth, Wind & Fire, Supertramp, Steely Dan and other late 70's bands. What could go wrong?

Interesting. Nostalgia band for sure. Including some ELO "Xanadu", some Genesis, an R&B song that I know, but could not place. I actually got distracted most of the time with, hey that sounds like <enter song or band>.  What is old is new again, time after time...... 

{good bass player though} 

Edit: -- I found it, Mornin' by Al Jarreau  :)

Yep, lots of ELO in the mix that I forgot to mention. Good catch on Al Jarreau, I missed that one :)

Big Red Machine - How Long Do You Think It's Gonna Last?

I had never heard of these guys, but they have a lot of collaborators on this album that I do like, such as Anaïs Mitchell, Sharon Van Etten and Fleet Foxes.

Very pleasant listen.

Still Wish You Were Here - A Tribute To Pink Floyd

Still Wish You Were Here - A Tribute To Pink Floyd
Various Artists
2021

Interesting album. Falls short mostly on the various vocal performances. 

Example: Welcome to the Machine · Todd Rundgren · Rick Wakeman · Tony Levin

 

I wouldn't.  And I love Pink Floyd, but it looks like it was recycled from one of those tribute albums from the 90's/2000's.  I mean, Edgar Froese is dead.  (RIP)

They're just trying to milk blood from a stone.  (...stone...stone...stone...stone...stone...)

Here, listen to this instead, it's actually creative:

I especially liked their versions of "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" (kinda made it a trip-hop version) and "Sheep" (won't spoiler it).

Thanks to folks here,

I also just posted something rough, long, and experimental. This is just raw output from my modular through a CXM 1978. It could definitely benefit from a real mix, but here it is anyway:

This was great, thanks for posting it!

I'm listening to some ancient electronic music from the 70's with tasty tasty analog synthesizers -- Space Art

Also listening to Portico Quartet's upcoming album, Monument -- RIYL post-rock.  Look for it in November:

Al Di Meola Plays Piazzolla

Not an example:

Just...superblime.  I was in love with Al Di Meola playing Piazzolla before the album existed.  (Libertango is from a different album, but I must've heard him play it live before this record came out, during the Cielo e Terra/Scenario era, which is when I first saw him play live.)

It's hard to stay cranky when one is listening to music this beautiful.
