Matt Lajoie – The Center and the Fringe
Flower Room Records, 2019
The Center and the Fringe” is a collection of four solo guitar instrumentals, recorded live with no overdubs at Flower Room’s temporary summer home in Hope, Maine, and display the most refined, spiritually inspired, and transcendent live guitar playing of his 20-year history with the instrument. Each track is based off a simple loop recorded live to LaJoie’s ubiquitous DL4, which then inspired live-looping, free-flowing automatic compositions from four to 20+ minutes in length.
O hell is a rosy-coloured land
under the sea
and if we take a bad turn
you and me we’ll go there together and plant tangerines
fiery fruit for the devil to eat
Enjoying this creative, minimal video from Beetle Box. Proves you don’t need much to make a cool video.

Garcia Peoples – Hangin’ On
Beyond Beyond is Beyond, 2018
Hangin’-On by Garcia Peoples from their 2018 album Cosmic Cash. Delightful shades of The Grateful Dead and The Allman Brothers Band
Suggested by LightningPsych
Chris Cohen (Deerhoof, Haunted Graffiti, Cass McCombs) is one of the best songwriters in the game. His single “Edit Out,” released late last year, is a restrained jazz-rock beauty. Love this guy’s tunes so, so much.

Suggested by Bunkytown

The Fall – Last Commands of Xyralothep via M.E.S.

Be Your Own Pet – Hillmont Avenue
Listened to a band earlier that reminded me of Be Your Own Pet. Tried to hear one of my favorite songs by them on Youtube or Spotify but couldn’t find it anywhere. I had it in my music library when I pirated a ton. Uploaded it but it might get taken down.
