my listening recently has included:
XTC - a bunch stuff, oranges, express, rag&bone
PJ Harvey - new CD "is this desire" - great disc, cloudy, murky (murkie?) -
and some cool loops
Zappa - Mystery Disc - the new collection of 60s weirdness, orchestral
music & oddities
Lotsa Zappa in general these days, learning/soaking up for some
Gongzilla - Thrive - Lotsa cool looping, i think Torn is on this one....
Elliott Sharp -Tectonics - his new one, cool drum & bass grooves with his
Mike Keneally's brilliant new "sluggo" (get it. get it. GET IT!!!)
throw in some Bartok, King's X, Marilyn Monroe (sic), Jeff Buckley's new

> well mark - here's what i've been listening to; some loopy, some not:
> i've been spending time with Seven Veils by robert rich (d. torn on 2
> very dreamy, very dark.
> the latest madeski-martin-wood, Combustication, is nice. i don't know if
> i like the turntable stuff, though; hiphop music culture isn't my bag, i
> think it's a little too trendy.
> (i guess i'll get a bunch of mail about that comment being close-minded
> or whatever. sorry. not saying it's bad, just saying it's not for me.)
> i've been listening to some older stuff too:
> Dream by u. srinivas, michael brook, et al, almost never leaves my cd
> tray. golly.
> the 1st steve tibbets on cuneiform is fun. i just got it & never knew
> that he was such a rock-god style player. hendrix, mclaughlin, & page
> influences all over his sleeve.
> Homage To Our Guru by aashish khan & indranil bhattacharya is some
> amazing raga duet. sarod vs. sitar reminiscent of ravi & ali akbar in
> the 50's & 60's.
> that's my 2 cents!
