Baskerville Jones: Mile 1

Baskerville Jones: Mile 1

I do truly appreciate the two instrumentals, one of “It’s Gonna Rain” and one of “On This Day” that end the EP. There’s lots of fun guitar stuff and piano respectively on the tunes and in fact for me, Matt Rohde’s solo ivory tickling on the “On This Day” instrumental is my most favorite moment on the Baskerville Jones’ Mile 1.

Iggy Pop: Post Pop Depression

Iggy Pop: Post Pop Depression

Seventeen solo albums in, it’s good to hear an ‘elder’ rocker like Pop still making music this vibrant (though if you missed Pop’s very French Préliminaires album from 2009 you need to get it right now!)…and being smart enough to reach out to the ‘younger’ set like Homme to make it with. Post pop Depression is a CD of fine playing, signature vocalizing and solid commercial rock tunes

Mark Knopfler and Evelyn Glennie: Altamira

Mark Knopfler and Evelyn Glennie: Altamira

The main themes here are gorgeous, the acoustic guitar playing about as top notch as you’d expect-considering it is Mark Knopfler playing guitar and composing-the percussion background expert, whether spooky metallic churning replicating bison, or trilly xylophone all from Evelyn Glennie. This 10-song lush landscape soundtrack from Mark Knopfler and Evelyn Glennie for the movie of the same name, Altamira, is a little gem of a CD.
