Happy Birthday Miles Davis

MD Milner submits three boots in honor of the anniversary of Miles Davis' birth, I like Davis stuff from this era (early 70's) the best...

Today, May 27 is Miles Davis' birthday, so I thought I'd share three bootlegs of him at the Fillmore East, when really leaned into the lean funk/rock/jazz but before his music really went wild.

New Thurston Moore

Thurston Moore's latest I found quite good, a friend disagrees a lot so tell me what you's a
review in case you need to decide if it's for you (This Japanese edition includes two bonus tracks)

Reunited with his backing band for The Best Day -- My Bloody Valentine bassist Deb Googe, Nøught guitarist James Sedwards, and longtime drummer Steve Shelley, asWELL as poet/songwriterRadieux Radio -- Thurston Moore delves even deeper into that album's contemplative, redemptive side on Rock N Roll Consciousness. On songs like the bold yet reverent "Cusp," Moore and company explore spiritual, sexual, and emotional healing on a mystical level. With two tracks stretching beyond the ten-minute mark, Rock N Roll Consciousness' songs are consistently longer than Sonic Youth's output, but they're not just expanded; they're heightened. The band locks in on the most transporting aspects of Moore's music, allowing his deadpan vocals to be the eye of the of the storms surrounding him. Though his delivery gives lyrics like "She is the future and the prophetess" an extra dose of cool, his words mostly function to usher in different movements within each song, which showcase the band's interplay and star turns. Sedwards' work on the New York City love letter "Smoke of Dreams" and "Turn On" (possibly the most Sonic Youth-like trackHERE) reaffirms what a worthy foil he is toMoore. Meanwhile, the album's bookends underscore how impressive the band is as a unit: "Exalted"BEGINS the album with its most varied track, as it moves from hypnotic harmonics to doomy, metal-inspired passages before drifting off on tightly woven guitars, while "Aphrodite" closes it with a standout performance from the rhythm section and some of Moore and Sedwards' most unearthly guitar tones. Another fine addition to his solo work, Rock N Roll Consciousness proves that Moore's search for enlightenment through noise remains vital.

A Bandcamp "Pay What you Want" from New Jersey 
metal trio Kolossor......three track EP has crushing metal riffs with those doom/death vocals......worth a listen, thanks to Fabio


Boston's Elder turn in a good one with their fourth album, "Reflections of a Floating World"........I'll add a quick review but these long, hypnotizing tracks are great stuff for sure!
Thanks to Fabio for the submission.

Reflections of a Floating World is Elder's fourth full length album and second LP released via Stickman Records (EU) and Armageddon Label (US). Long, undulating and dense tracks float between psychedelic passages and progressive rock without missing a beat; adventurous and unpredictable songs are punctuated by hypnotic jams, all colored by the tendency toward melody and dynamism that has become the band's hallmark. In keeping with their motto of expanding and expanding upon their repertoire, guest musicians Mike Risberg and Michael Samos joined the core three in the studio to add extra guitar, keys and pedal steel, adding vibrancy and lushness to the album. In all regards, Reflections shows a band with a clear vision honing their skills with every year.

Studkid sends some cool Bandcamp links

Scott: I LOVE free bandcamp links, again, artists who GET IT.....I WANT to spread the sounds of the up-and-comers, please, I welcome all rock bands to submit their bandcamp links here!

Studkid:  Time for some free Bandcamp:

Aloha Mr.Hand - Hipster Killer:

Oohh. I love this simple raw primal guitar riffs, like in 70' hard rock/doom.

Some fantastic heavy psych/doom. 3 records for grabs.

White Orange and Black Pussy:

They are almost the same band (three members). Both bands plays  a kind of heavy psych.

Black Pussy's latest is not for free

The Stooges Fun House Sessions

I've posted the box set before, this is a fine two disc highlight package, a best-of the box.......great raw stuff,
read up if you like: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

1970: The Complete Fun House Sessions was recorded at Elektra Sound Recorders in Los Angeles and compiled from all thirteen reels of multi-track tape that held every note and snippet of studio dialogue. Twelve reels of tape were used during the original sessions, with the thirteenth reel having the takes that would be used on the studio album. This sprawling set which was originally aimed at the collector market would be challenging and cost prohibitive to reissue as a multi-disc vinyl box set. What is presented here is an attempt to assemble some of the best highlights from the Fun House Sessions on an officially-released 2LP set in high quality packaging with a sequence that hopefully proves to be an easier, and more casual listen. Included are some terrific alternate versions of Down on the Street, Loose, Dirt, Funhouse ,1970 and others, pulled from session reels 1, 4,6, 7, 9 & 11and originally recorded on May 11,12, 15, 18, 21 & 25 of 1970. Also notable is the inclusion of the 17+ minute-version of L.A. Blues, titled as “Freak,” which encompasses the entire fourth side of this set and is the prime example of what makes the Funhouse Sessions both loved and feared simultaneously.

Track Listing:
Side A
Studio Dialogue #23 (reel 6) May 18, 1970
2  Down on the Street Take 6 (Reel 6) May 18, 1970
