Mon. 10/14/13 6:04am fxo:
morning, or afternoon (good for both...)
Mon. 10/14/13 6:14am fxo:
glitches with the stream. Hopefully it will be worked out (please?)
Mon. 10/14/13 6:19am David L.B. is RRN63:
Oh! - it's not my computer or connection...kind of a silver lining
...yeah, it just keeps stopping & needing to rebuffer (using iTunes).
Mon. 10/14/13 6:24am Matheus:
same problem here. 32k streaming is fine, though.
Mon. 10/14/13 6:26am fxo:
We hope, sooner, we'll get that satellite fixed. For what it's worth, I expect the archived webcast will be there, later, in total.
thanks Matheus. Lets work with the 32k stream...
Mon. 10/14/13 6:27am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- sounds fixed now...
Mon. 10/14/13 6:30am fxo:
fingers, toes, and legs, all crossed.
Mon. 10/14/13 6:33am Sem Chumbo:
Hiya, Frank, RevRab, Matheus. Good morning. Always sweet to wake up to pedal steel, and this voice is amazing.
Mon. 10/14/13 6:38am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- loved Mazzy then, & what I've heard of the new on FMU sounds like not a moment's passed, & very good indeed ! !
Mon. 10/14/13 6:42am fxo:
yeah, I love Hope Sandoval (and her voice), as well as the pedal steel.
hey, David L.B., Rev, Sem, and, of course, YOU!
Mon. 10/14/13 6:51am kat330:
Happy Monday, Frank and all! This is a boffo Paxton cover!! [JT says hi! and likes it muchly, too]
Mon. 10/14/13 6:52am kat330:
ooops, I mean Philo. :,
Mon. 10/14/13 6:53am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- yeah, like this 'Last Thing'. I often imagine covers w/ heavier arrangements ! - altho' nothing wrong w/ original ! - & I love good Folk~SingerSongwritery stuffs...
Mon. 10/14/13 6:53am fxo:
kat & Co: glad you can hear it.
Mon. 10/14/13 6:55am kat330:
I got to see Paxton live when at Brown U., a weekend festival of incredible artists: Pentangle, John Sebastian, James Taylor, John Mayall, Delaney & Bonnie, Seatrain, Ray Charles and Judy Collins to cap it off on Sunday.
Mon. 10/14/13 6:56am fxo:
the only American tour, from the original Move lineup. Lucky it was recorded.
Mon. 10/14/13 6:56am kat330:
Where are they from? Not familiar with them or that cover.
Mon. 10/14/13 6:58am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...yerknow - when Dylan went Electric, the *intelligent* critique was some intimacy was lost ( - & just the technical aspect of not hearing his voice well w/ the P.A.'s & mixing of the time - not yet developed) - there's a little something to that argument - altho' I can't find a bit of fault w/ recordings like 'Blonde on Blonde' (another matter)...
- Move is proto-E.L.O.(-ish), kat !...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:00am kat330:
Blonde on Blonde is wonderful. I never had any problem at all with his transition, but then my music appreciation was always very eclectRic from the get-go.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:01am kat330:
ELO, eh? Thanks! Hm. The very opening measures of that Move cover reminded of Meat Puppets guitar sort of, and it took a while before I realized it was "Last Thing..."
Mon. 10/14/13 7:08am fxo:
hey, here in Jersey City, the sun's tryin' to crack. It's cloudy, now.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:08am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
Move WigKey :
Mon. 10/14/13 7:11am Sem Chumbo:
Too long since a good dose of Sarah Vaughn. Listening closely for the remix magic.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:12am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...widgets say only Room Temperature today - & they might be trying to tell me we're out of the 70°sF for good...but they were wrong yesterday & we had the windows open @ the thriftstore job (a most welcome occurrence)...I hate closing windows @ night & turning heat on - but once again in this Life I wasn't consulted about the Changes...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:15am fxo:
Thanks for the Move reference, Rev.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:15am kat330:
So odd how Summertime has insinuated itself into my consciousness the past few days. In autumn no less! Our weather has been, in a word, GLORIOUS for so many days now. My fave, with temps topping out in low or mid-70s.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:17am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...we've had quite beautiful ♎Libran NorthNewEngland Autumn days - but the angle of that Sun is getting lower & the days shorter - & Winter is here is too damn long, Folx...altho' I don't expect that to impress our NorthEuropean friends!...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:19am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...one too many "is's" - altho' it is what it is is...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:20am kat330:
"Depends on what the meaning of "is" is."
Mon. 10/14/13 7:21am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...is is...Isis in a Crisis...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:22am kat330:
It was Osiris in that instance. Isis stood by him icily.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:23am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
I knew I could not hold on to her very long.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:23am kat330:
I'm going to type "blasphemy" right now, so sensitive folks should avert their eyes: While I love her choices and musicianship, I simply do not like the sound of Valerie June's vocals. Too lateral or something like that. A shame because I *want* to like her, but cannot.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:25am kat330:
Frank, did you do that Cass remix? Very nice!
Mon. 10/14/13 7:27am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- when you have a Stylist - it's gonna fall like that. (I can O.D. on Dinah Washington, but I come back.)
- I think V.J. is very nicely in Erikah Badu~MacyGray territory, but there you are...
...Irwin thinks Ella doesn't have enuff Soul !!...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:28am fxo:
I wish! It's out there in the ether...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:29am kat330:
Speaking of out there in the ether, for those folks who groove on long and complex song titles (like Mr. Drummer himself), here's one I just stumbled across:"If I Had 50p for Every Time You Stabbed Me In The Back, I'd Be Looking At At Least £8.60"
Mon. 10/14/13 7:32am kat330:
I first heard Valerie June on the Letterman show of all places. She led off with some good guitar playing and I was on the edge of my seat. Then she started singing. :,
Mon. 10/14/13 7:32am mauri:
Mon. 10/14/13 7:33am fxo:
Mauri: the sun is also out, here, and now. I'll take it, and for your sanity, as well.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:34am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...where can one find SirMacca'a 'Fireman' stuff ?
- 'Free Now' w/ Beatletalk samples by SuperFuryAnimals I like as well...
- you mean kat she's too monotone ('flat') or something?
...Billie Holiday observed she only had seven notes - & I'd never even thot about it! - & *she's* probably my favorite Singer in history...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:35am kat330:
There are also people who sing way too vertically -- some who fancy themselves as "operatic" or church choir members. Something in-between having the mouth in big, tight "O" and a sideways "I". IMHO, of course.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:36am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...'cause I never hear that Fireman or 'FreeNow' - much less have them...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:37am kat330:
Rev, I was typing the above before I saw your question, but yeah, I think it's in how the mouth is opened when singing. Some of it's about nasality, but more about the shape of the hole the sound's coming through.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:38am fxo:
The Fireman/Macca piece is available for your consumption. Amazon, perhaps?
Mon. 10/14/13 7:40am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...range & power are great
- but it don't make you worth just 30 seconds of what Marvin Gaye did.
Technique is not automatically Great Music. Like shredding guitarists who actually have nothing to say...together they do not add up to a single Hendrix.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:40am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...but you seem to be getting more specific maybe kat...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:43am kat330:
I'm not talking technique really. Just a more natural, looser placement of one's instrument, neither tight vertically nor tight horizontally. Naturally changing the hole's shape as one does in speaking instead of never moving it much to shift from a long "e" to a long "i" phrase.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:46am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...do you think the comparison of V.J. to Badu or Macy has any merit?...I wonder if what you feel lazy hits me as sultry - the vocal equivalent of bed-head ! - ?...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:48am Jay/London:
Good Morning Frank and all am off today so can listen live
Mon. 10/14/13 7:48am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
Mon. 10/14/13 7:49am kat330:
But I don't think it's laziness to hold one's mouth in a ventriloquist position -- that takes some effort. Maybe it's nerves or wanting to emulate some personal icon, but I know it when I hear it. I call it "lateral" singing, but never heard anyone else refer to such.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:50am Jay/London:
Mon. 10/14/13 7:50am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- you're probably doing a good job, kat
...I ☆ V.June - is all !...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:51am kat330:
And I *do* like Macy and Billie. Not the same thing as VJ. Someone more like VJ's laterality would be Natalie Merchant.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:51am 3d-nyc:
@ Birth of a Peaseful Ren:
great stuff to tune into - Morning all-
Mon. 10/14/13 7:52am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...I have heard bel canto microphone-less Opera style singing called 'vertical' & such - so you're prob. not so alone...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:52am fxo:
The archive will be there for all of us, completed, in a few hours, with the printed playlist.
wfmu.org, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Great back & forth. I like that...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:53am kat330:
Dolly Parton and many country stars have it, too, but I've come to love Dolly's "Jolene," so maybe the right song for VJ would turn me around.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:53am kat330:
Yes, this piece is sooooooooothing.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:56am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...Music works w/ different parts of the Brain than Verbal articulation - so it's a challenge, but real good exercise to try & explain this sort of thing, I feel !
...Speaking & singing are the kind of things most people do w/out reflecting on what's going on precisely...@ all ! - but the Pros have...
Mon. 10/14/13 7:58am Sem Chumbo:
I had forgotten just how cinematic the lyrics to this are, and how just-so the strong arrangement. Lovely choice, fxo.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:59am mauri:
I really like the Rolling Stone Session Valerie June Twined And Twisted on youtube. The album was ok. I think the mix on it is not very good. Sounds flat.
Mon. 10/14/13 7:59am kat330:
But it all boils down to one's personal prefs in the end and vive les differences! Like the heart, the ear wants what it wants. :)
Mon. 10/14/13 8:00am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- one of the very best. Macca depth w/ nothing to do w/ Lennon. (Third Person, whilst Johnny usually First...) See the difference it made that George Martin did *not* arrange 'She's Leaving Home' ...
Mon. 10/14/13 8:01am kat330:
@mauri: You have a link handy?
Mon. 10/14/13 8:01am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- yes kat330 - but that's the point - trying to express verbally what & why !
Mon. 10/14/13 8:02am mauri:
Mon. 10/14/13 8:03am kat330:
Thanks and kiitos!
Mon. 10/14/13 8:04am mauri:
Ole hyvä! :D
Mon. 10/14/13 8:06am kat330:
I can even get fancy: Hyvä! Maanentai ? and paljon kiitoksia!
Mon. 10/14/13 8:08am 3d-nyc:
FXO ( I believe) did some one doing are freshing cover of Arosmiths "walk this way " which highlighted and put new light on the lyrics- heard it in the archive- 2 3 weeks ago-
Mon. 10/14/13 8:08am mauri:
Hehe its a hard language I guess. Hyvää maanantaita.
Mon. 10/14/13 8:10am kat330:
Yes, it certainly is. Thank goodness Philo knows and speaks English better than many USers. :)
Mon. 10/14/13 8:11am mauri:
Sometimes its fun to talk the rallydriver finnish.
Mon. 10/14/13 8:12am kat330:
OK, gotta get off keyboard now but still listening. Thanks, fxo! And thanks for the lively discussion, Rabbit! Moi moi!
Mon. 10/14/13 8:13am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
