The Long Ryders – Live at Bowery Ballroom Nov 10 2016



via Little Axe Records

The lone recordings of teenaged vocalist Anna Makirere of Rarotonga, Cook Islands. Sung in close harmony in Māori Kuki Airan, Tiare Avatea pairs Makirere’s casual yet masterful vocalizations with virtuoso accompanists. Somewhere between slack-key and flat-picked, the brilliant guitar work is seasoned tastefully with sunburned effects. Translating literally to “Afternoon Flower,” this radiant collection of originals and traditionals was issued regionally on cassette in 1981. It remains a unique look into Cook Islands sound and style.

Taken from the first full-length album of Tredici bassi featuring Ruth Garbus (Feathers, Happy Birthday). The group is the brainchild of Simon Hanes, formerly known as the Guerilla Toss bassist. Available via NNA tapes.

モリコーネもバカラックもトロヴァヨーリも入ってるのね。サイモン・ヘインズのドリーム・バンド、トレディーチ・バッチ。いつか来たモンドの森へ。。。





via FMA, Gary Wilson and Tredici Bacci, Live on WFMU with Marty McSorley, 9/23/2016


“Over the last few years, the young musician and composer Simon Hanes has worked tirelessly to channel his deep love and infatuation with 1960’s/1970’s soundtrack music into his own personal vision and homage to the style through dedicated songwriting, and the integration of the totality of his musical influences.”



Taken from the forthcoming new record “Untouchable” by The Cairo Gang (Emmett Kelly), due out on March 24th via GOD?, Drag City imprint run by Ty Segall who plays and engineered the recordings at his studio.

シカゴとカリフォルニアを結ぶミュージシャンのつながりを持つエメット・ケリー。ウィル・オールダムとタイ・セガールのバックで弾いていた人が歌うとバーズのようでもなぜかビッグ・スターのように聴こえてくるのです。
