Bandcamp Day Reccos: February 2021 (feat. Very Good Haiku)

I asked the people and the people said my Bandcamp Day reccos should be archived somewhere and also that I have to publish the same shit in as many ways as possible on the internet in order to deal with the ever-increasing laziness of our society and the fact that people have weird habits on social media and I have to do MANY THINGS to get through. As a result, I also have a Substack now, and you can sign up here.

Betwixt – Salty Tang

I.

Women telling me

to rock and roll with them, is

basically the best.


II.

Who knows who’s dead, the

future holds its weary head”

MUSIC FOR THE NOW!!!!!!


Darryl Blood – Air Drop

Someone is tuning

a piano, but my heart

is the instrument.

Note: All proceeds from this go to support Black Lives Matter!!!


Sweeping Promises – Hunger For A Way Out

The bass is WHITE HOT!!!

I may never sleep again?!?

…dancing in my bed…


Janel Leppin, Susan Alcorn, Meghan Habibzai – Sister Mirror

Strangely, listening

to Édith Piaf a lot

today: great intro.


Diane Cluck – Common Wealth

Note: I began my journey of listening with Diane when I was still a high school student. I am presently double that age. Every cell in my body has regenerated itself twice since we began, and every cell has been heavily nourished by her healing frequencies.

Growing up with her

through this music has been FULL

with: grief, healing, joy.


Diane Cluck – Four Friends

One outcome of her Very Good Idea to develop a CSA-style way of funding the work of musical artists, Song of the Week, back in 2012 or so. An EP, but perhaps the greatest one anyone has ever made!!!


Diane Cluck & Anders Griffen – West Coast Tour 2008

Diane with live drums

is a very serious

sonic offering!!


Kicking Giant – This Being the Ballad of Kicking Giant…

I.

The best music for

another brilliant person

choosing to leave us.

II.

Rumbling drums and

noisy feedback on the top

is our friends, crying.


Mary Timony – Mountains 20th Anniversary

I wrote my first official album review on this reissue; you can access the record and what I said about it at the link above.

There is also a haiku:

I will always love

hearing a brilliant woman

left alone to write.


Turkish Delight – Tommy Bell/Howcha Magowcha

I.

Boston is quite full

of sneaky, sexy music

and noisy outbursts!

II.

In the future, I’ll

only visit Boston for

the sex karate.


George Cory Todd – That Dark Electric

Abrupt shifts disrupt

industrial noise, lit up

by high, swelling synths!!!


Garland of Hours – S/T

Piano driving

the snow into swells and drifts:

our memory bank.

(Brendan Canty on bass!!!)


Garland of Hours – The Soundest Serum

Cellos of winter

stomping through blizzards down the

longest, hardest roads.


Garland of Hours – Lucidia

POSTPUNK!!! No, CHAMBER

POP!!! NO, NO, NO!!! JUST V E R Y

GOOD SONGWRITING, FOOLS!!!!!!!

(Lungfish cover VERY FUCKIN GOOD!!! MARY TIMONY ON GUITARRRRR!!!)


Swirlies – Magic Strop: Tonight

I.

Beginning to feel

Swirlies exist to confuse

me to attention.

II.

Etching in the wax

is so very miniscule!!!

Must be held to light!!

III.

No idea who plays what;

none of this side or that side,

only: see and hear.

IV.

Sneaky Flute Empire:

plotting confusing sound wars

for deep attention.


Patrick Cowley – Some Funkettes

Video games tunes

for a game in which you just

groove around the block.


Kristin Hersh – Possible Dust Clouds

Everything she makes

surpasses the previous!!!

How does she do it?


Jessamine – Don’t Stay Too Long

Music for bad moods:

curious ability

to soften the bleak.


drea the vibe dealer – maiden muva crone 3

There is a special

place in “Heaven” reserved for

punk-r&b love.

and ZINE!!!!


Dura – Mercury

The earth turns, marked by

heavy precipitation:

warmed by fire of sound.

(This is an epic exercise in deep listening…a real journey…you must be truly devoted to it!!! )


Octo Octa She’s Calling EP

The strong desire to

become a rave animal

in the dancing woods!


French Vanilla – How Am I Not Myself?

Celebration sound!!!

Smart dance punk wrought from 80s

UK and Athens.


Ⓚ – Three Pillars of Limbic Fission

“consciousness, drifting

drones of time, repetition

in another realm…

Note: A recording of a private-pressed cassette my friend/Haiku Editor found in Ohio, raising donations for Covid response in indigenous communities in Canada.


Dear Nora – Three States and Rarities Box Set Reissue

“Simple, musical
philosophy at its best:
life’s great sing-a-long!!!”
