Brian Harnetty – Marshall (From the Sun Ra Archives)
performing music from his 2013 release, The Star-Faced One.
Taken from the album “The Star-Faced One,” via Atavistic records (2013). Samples from the Sun Ra/El Saturn collection at the Creative Audio Archive at Experimental Sound Studio, Chicago. Additional musicians include Fred Lonberg-Holm (Cello), Jeff Kimmel (Bass Clarinet), and Aaron Butler (Vibes).
Taken from 7” single, entitled “The Sociophonic Key” (2012)
“Despite the variety of samples used many subtle relationships are heard––both literal and fantastic––from Sun Ra rehearsing a group of children fading into an answering machine, to the intensity of a gospel preacher alongside the Arkestra’s invitation to join them in outer space.”

“Nashville’s finest purveyors of febrile root-work psychedelia return with a dizzyingly accomplished second album that highlights an expanded band (including members of the Paperhead and Fly Golden Eagle); bigger, bolder arrangements featuring more and louder guitars, squally strings, and Steve Gunn; and road-ripened songwriting that veers between the frenetic and tender, recalling Jim Ford, the Pretty Things, the Grateful Dead, Dennis Linde, and the Byrds at their most eight-miles-fried.”

‘Things Don’t Change That Fast’ is taken from the first single from Cian Nugent‘s third album “Night Fiction,” out on Jan 2016 via Woodsist. The album was recorded over a week beginning on Valentine’s Day 2014 at the Bow Lane Studios in Dublin with Daniel Fox (Girl Band) and mixed by Brendan Jenkinson. The album’s seven songs include solo ventures as well as full-band recordings feat. David Lacey on drums, Conor Lumsden on bass, Brendan Jenkinson on organ and piano and Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh on viola.
“Cian Nugent is a guitar player and composer from Dublin, Ireland who combines personal passions, such as suburban/coastal blues, traditional musics, late 1960s & ’70s singer-songwriters, jazz ambitions, 20th century composition and the Takoma school into a deeply personal style. His music boasts an orchestrated and fully instrumented sound that is playful and eerie at the same time.”
