Bugger! Why didn't someone tell me this full preorder download was available??

Well okay, Bandcamp apparently did, but their email of about a week ago seems to have gone to spam. Meanwhile I hadn't bothered checking because the official page still lists the release date as 7/21.

Anyway, it's here and the first show so far is as strong as hoped. There are fewer improvs than the Midori set, but the jams have great atmospherics and they share the same willingness to mix things up. As before, there's some material from the members' familiar current Crimson repertoire crossed with a couple '80s KC numbers the special guest hasn't appeared on before. L5 is an appropriate stomper for a finale, even if it doesn't reach the same punch of the septet's treatment. More interesting is Mel's addition to the Stick Men material, even if the only newer tune is the disappointing "Prog Noir" (yeesh, that title just never gets any less awful).

What they really need to do next is another installment of the Stick Men + series with Jamie Muir. Preferably in the northeast US.

Otherwise lately...

Gonzalo Esteybar, One Look
A nice short-and-sweet slice of solo guitar. There's some emphasis tones and effects, though all hung on ear-pleasing patterns and compositions. Apparently he's a Kcrafty, and you can hear the influence in there without the pieces needing to fit in the 'usual' intricate mold of the LCG/OCG.

Stephen Micus, Inland Sea
He's one of those artists that's apparently been around forever (or at least long enough to release 21 previous albums) without my ever hearing of him. This is superb, though. He specializes in extremely obscure instruments from all over the world and using them to build solo collages. This is compelling and fascinatingly alien all at once.

Kwame Binea Shakedown, Roots Rock 'N Universal Love
The title says it all, though I'm liking it much more than most. The spirit of joy is genuinely infectious and there's enough rootsy rhythm to merit a guest spot by Vernon Reid.

Lisa Said, Estranged
A quick and basic rock EP. Picture a little Chrissie Hynde and a little early Liz Phair and you're in the right neighborhood.

Loads of Dixie Dregs (I was due for a binge even without the holy-shit reunion news)

There's just three things in my life that I regret
There's everything I've done, everything I'm doing
And what I haven't done yet

Great box: I like it a lot more than the 2015 one (haven't heard 2016). Disc 2 with all of the versions of Larks' Tongues is definitely one I expect to go back to often.

Oscar Feldman - Gol
