The Weekly Music Discussion Thread is Going Under

Let’s discuss any and all music here. You’ve got a new artist who’s rocking your boat that you want to talk about? Post a video! Found out about that unearthed Coltrane album that has the jazz freak in you losing your mind? Lay it out for us! Do you have a theory about what your favorite band might do for their next album? Let’s hear it! Anything and everything music-related goes here.

The Well, it’s new to me dept.> From 2012. I am listening to The Hand To Man Band right now. It’s a pick-up band featuring Mike Watt, Thollem McDonas (legendary solo pianist, member of Tsigoti, collaborator with Stefano Scodanibbio, etc ad infinitum), John Dieterich (guitarist for Deerhoof, Natural Dreamers), and Tim Barnes (skins on Silver Jews, Jim O’Rourke, Text of Light). I’m only familiar with Watt and Deerhoof. I wasn’t sure what to expect and still It’s nothing like I expected. I’m really digging this! Post-rock experimentalism that reminds me of the Waters/Ezrin Music from the Body soundtrack. There’s some free jazz and droney-boney torch songs. It’s called You Are Always On Our Minds:

This week’s prompt: Go to sleepies.

By this time tomorrow, I will be in surgery.1 I’ve been thinking on what I would like to hear as I go under. I’m going with asking for Won’t Get Fooled Again when they knock me out. A bit cliche, but how freakin’ awesome would it be to blast⬇︎this⬇︎when the veil hits?!

This makes me think on the intersection of Sleep St. and Tuneage Ave. The right sounds2 can help push us into rest. The wrong stuff3 will lead to a rumple-toss night.

How about y’all? What sends you off to sleep? Does music affect your dreams? Or are you just dreaming of that record you just heard? Speak it.

Of 🎵: Due to the surgery, my right arm will be immobile for two weeks to a month. I’ll be back, but if someone wants to take the reins for this time, I and I’m sure all us ‘Cados would be grateful. Just stake your claim in the comments. Rock out with that guac out, y’all!
