Where are they from? Not familiar with them or that cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    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 !...
Avatar 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.
Avatar 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..."

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.

Avatar 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.
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 7:25am kat330:

Frank, did you do that Cass remix? Very nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    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.)

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"
Avatar 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. :,

...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...
Avatar 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.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 10/14/13 7:36am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...'cause I never hear that Fireman or 'FreeNow' - much less have them...
Avatar 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.
Avatar    Mon. 10/14/13 7:38am fxo:

The Fireman/Macca piece is available for your consumption. Amazon, perhaps?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    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.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 10/14/13 7:40am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...but you seem to be getting more specific maybe kat...
Avatar 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.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    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 ! - ?...

Good Morning Frank and all am off today so can listen live
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 10/14/13 7:48am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Hullo Jay!
Avatar 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.

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.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    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.

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.
Avatar 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. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    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' ...
