Playlist, Week of 2020-01-12

Image result for muffins 185"

I'd forgotten how wonderfully weird the Muffins LP <185> is... their only one produced by Fred Frith... evidently the CD has two versions, one less Frith-icized... will need to check that out... I actually like what he did on this; the sound is warped and layered... Speaking of Frith, I am getting more into Dagmar Krause's vocals than I ever have before... she's certainly an acquired taste, but her voice is a perfect fit for the strident politics of Henry Cow... I need to dig out my Art Bears records...

  1. Those Jaimie Branch records are great. Two generations of great Chicago jazz players on one record.
