EchoTest, From Two Balconies
Well! This is something different. I prefer their instrumental/ProjeKcty side, but have to give them credit for going somewhere so different this time. Even if it's closer to vaguely conventional song-based territory, there's enough of a modern progressive/trip-hop side (including one great groove by P@) that I'm happy to go with it.

Joe Fiedler, Like, Strange
Listening to this, it's not surprising the guy has played with the Glenn Miller Orchestra and worked as the trombonist/musical arranger for Sesame Street. It's a fun celebratory recording that covers a good amount of ground; some classic swing in the trombone's usual wheelhouse, some very different things with guitar juiced-up enough to live in the world of rock instead of jazz. I like.

Tom Kennedy, Points of View
This one's not bad and not outstanding. Take the fairly standard electric fusion template of Dave Weckl (TK's main collaborator), shuffle a few guests and you've got something like this. Also fun in its own way, though I'm not sure how much I'll be coming back to it later.

Ten Strings and a Goat Skin, Après du Poêle
No points for guessing how folky and/or European this one is. They've got an able feel for jigs, reels and the odd traditional ballad. Strictly speaking it's twenty-odd strings, a box or two, a goat skin/tipper and some vocal cords, but they're really enough of a mouthful already.

Nik Bärtsch's Ronin Live (2012)
Richard Barbieri, Planets + Persona
Trey Gunn, The Waters, They Are Rising
KC, AttaKcaThraK / Beat (2016)

Yes, it was. An amazing experience. Thanks for your comment on the AAJ site. I finally saw it and responded there yesterday. I've been distracted the last few days covering another festival: Big Ears in Knoxville.

The Allman Brothers Band Live from A&R Studios

Ozric Tentacles, Paper Monkeys

As if I wasn't swamped enough, eMusic offered to let some volunteers try out the beta version of the soon-to-be-updated site before its overhaul. Access to poke around and $250 in credit to play with was just too good to pass up. Streaming only, naturally, and it all goes away after Monday. But in the meantime it's been fun to try the improved interface and sample some things the proper site doesn't seem to have, such as the Warp Records catalogue including that new Eno.

Harvey Mandel, Snake Attack
It's a name I've vaguely known about forever and been vaguely curious about - a largely blues-based guitarist also known for squeezing strings for interesting sounds a-la that Belew guy. Fortunately and unfortunately, this is an all-solo pastiche he put together at home with drum machines and such. There are fun, hard-kicking pieces that combine Ade-like skronking with some of the techno feel from Jeff Beck's early-noughties trilogy, but I can't help wishing there was a real band at work instead.

Jeb Loy Nichols, Country Hustle
Well, this makes an interesting and unexpected mix - it's actually light on the country and fairly heavy on the hustle. A mishmosh of alt-country and smoove R&B scattered with hints of desert blues and dub/trip-hop, which doesn't sound anywhere near as schizophrenic as it really should.

Uncle Bobby @ Newlyn '05
Randy Ingram, The Wandering
Back Door, Activate
Keith Jarrett, Sun Bear Concerts: Kyoto / Osaka
Dayna Stephens, Gratitude
Reverend Chris, @etude
David Arthur Skinner, Skinner Plays Skinner
Markus Reuter, Digitalis / Sultry Kiss Down Under
Gordian Knot s/t
Bruuuce @ Glenside '16
OSI, Free

Stupidly busy, so from what I recall recently....

Woodlander, Calvins Toboggan
Besides the aready-appealing title and snazzy artwork, it's a colorful treat with a nice subtle sense of adventure. The lineup (trumpet/piano/drums) makes an interestingly different shade from a more conventional rhythm-section-anchored ensemble too.

Aimee Mann, Mental Illness
One recurring and partly deserved criticism of her music has often been about the slow pace and downbeat tone. After going catchy the last time around, she apparently decided this would be a "screw you, I'll be as mopey as I want just for the hell of it" album instead. At least we were warned. Maybe it's because I've had so many years of familiarity already, but I hear nothing wrong with it. The sharp witty lyricism and beautiful performance are offering a lot to uncover in time.

KC, Three of a Perfect Pair / Red / Absent Lovers / Aztec ThraK
The Delta Saints, Bones / Monte Vista
Ian Boddy, As Above So Below (eMusic)
Hey Rosetta!, Into Your Lungs / Seeds
Louis Sclavis, Asian Fields Variations
Marillion, Marbles
Nypan, Stereotomic
Alf Häggvist, Blue Serge
Nik Bärtsch's Ronin Live (2012)
Dayna Stephens, Gratitude
Tim Motzer, Unseen Universe
Reverend Chris Marsceill, @etude
Lams & Griesgraber, Unnamed Lands

Great choice. I don't generally start thinking of best-of-year lists until much later, but I'm already sure that will be one of my top choices for '17.

It was also interesting to see you mention a new Antimatter. Last I remembered, they'd parted ways years ago (assuming it's the same duo I'm thinking of). I'll have to look into that.
