Talking about all the great shows happening in Boston area this month! First and foremost, there’s Turkish Delight reunion happening at the Middle East Upstairs on July 20! Yes, that same band whose reissue of Tommy Bell we sold out entirely in about a month last year.

There’s another TD reissue we got on the way – Howcha Magowcha, their sophomore / final album from 1998, will also get a (nice) tape treatment from us. In the meantime, everyone should read an excellent write-up that Andrea Feldman / Warped Reality Magazine did on the band.

Sharing the bill are Oceans of the Moon, Fur Purse, Gull Boy and BunnyBrains. In other news…

Faust w/Alec K. Redfearn and Creative Healing

Where: Brighton Music Hall

When: July 18

Books out! Class work! Subject: Geometry. What do all these rectangles, circles, dots, and triangles mean to you? It’s not so old-school when Werner “Zappi” Diermaier presents his geometrical forms. But the question that bandmates and the audience at the California Institute of the Arts were confronted with was a rather similar one: How would you transform the graphic score, which is currently projected onto the screen, into acoustic signals? The result was a wildly meandering, high-intensity, 23-second symphony, in which the onomatopoetic knot bursts. “It’s a sort of dadaist choir, a musique impressioniste,” says faUSt founder Jean-Hervé Péron. “People participated right away.” “Sounds like a sporting event! And the audience screams: Hurray!” says Zappi Diermaier. Two perspectives on one idea from faUSt. Very good! Sit down! Continue!

ELKHORN (Philadelphia/NYC) is an acid folk guitar duo featuring the 12 string acoustic fingerpicking of Jesse Sheppard and the improvisational electric soloing of Drew Gardner. Their music straddles the story of American guitar over the last century by digging into deep folk, jazz, blues and psychedelia.

 

RAMBLE TAMBLE (Kingston, NY) is the mantra/moniker for Turner Williams Jr. & his creations & collaborations w/ headnecks of all nations. Ecstatic modal improv for strings (electric shahi baaja & bulbul tarang, guitar, etc), tapes, and FX.

There’s also a great guest mix that Elkhorn did for IHN that features both Ramble Tamble and Rob Noyes (as well as a host of other fellow psychedelic travelers).
