8X8 is the unique and mystical collaboration between Lane Steinberg (New York, US) and Alex Khodchenko (Kiev, UKR). The two have never met in person and have never spoken. Indeed, they would be mostly unable to do so, for they do not share a common language and must rely on online translation programs to communicate. This aside, they have established an effective method of working, trading files back and forth through the internet. Their aesthetic kinship is such that the work flows freely between them and they often anticipate each others comments and suggestions before they are made. The music can be described as psychedelic pop, not in a cliched sense of obvious stylistic reference points, but in its kaleidoscopic vision. Their influences, though easy to glean, fall secondary to the strength of the compositions and their performances.
'Azalea's Room', their 2nd collection, has been two years in the making. The title track typifies the kinetic energy of their process. At first, Alex had a rough track which was labeled, "Azia Brew". Lane then turned this into 'Azia's Brew", which transformed into "Azalea's Brew", before settling into its final incarnation. The song, with it's Arabic sounding melody, speaks of a seaside refuge belonging to a mysterious woman. What follows are songs with far-flung subjects such as star-crossed werewolves, cold war-era spies, a retiring obstetrician, a person trying to erase their identity the internet...not exactly the usual rock n' roll subjects.
Nor is the music anything typical, with its sweeping melodies, majestic cadences, and seamless melding of rock drive with classic and classical influence. Besides the three B's (Beatles, Beach Boys, Barrett), there are also progressive snatches that recall the heyday of Yes and Procol Harum,
"Azalea's Room" closes out with a cover of 'Tears of Rage', the only song written by Bob Dylan and Richard Manuel, which first appeared on the Band's first album, 'Music From Big Pink'.This is the only track with a guest musician (underground legend, R. Stevie Moore, plays bass).The song is a prefect coda to the album and an aesthetic touchstone to everything 8X8 is about - impressionistic, yet penetrating lyrics wedded to a grand melody and delivered with a gentle groove you can turn off, relax, and float downstream to.

очередной поиск
вот такие названия:
«The Neat Chang»
«Tinkerbell's Fairydus»
— они мелькали очень милыми песнями в тех или иных британских сборниках конца 60ых, но — хотел бы очень послушать их альбомы.

и вот что ещё:
нет ли у кого-либо записей относительно современной группы «The Tables»?
я думаю строка
  • The Tables Play Idle Race 7" (Kippers Records, 2000)

  • должна вам понравится)))
    да и вообще — эта группа очень даже «в теме»...

    Nirvana - All of Us 1968
    Простите за плохое качество, найду лучше - сделаю перепост.

    When Nirvana released their second album, All of Us, they were a studio-oriented group with just Patrick Campbell-Lyons and Alex Spyropoulos left. This album has a really nice swinging 60s feel to it, spearheaded by the delightful Rainbow Chaser, with its melancholic melody and super phased chorus. A true psychedelic classic.

    The most remarkable thing about Nirvana's second album is the cover shot which depicts some of world history's most famous figures leading a procession through a mass of dead bodies. Despite this provocative and disturbing image, All Of Us is possibly the most commercial of their albums.

    Island records turned down their next album, To Markos III, witch eventually came out on Pye and sold sold practically nothing. Alex quit, leaving Patrick to record two further albums under the Nirvana name, Local Anaesthetic and Songs of Love and Praise.

    Released 1968. Island ILPS 9087

    Keith Christmas - Stimulus 1969
    If you like impressive overlapping guitar parts...

    This is the debut album from the English singer and songwriter Keith Christmas. Originally released in 1969 this is a lost treasure on which Keith was backed by members of Mighty Baby who together created a late 60's "laid back Dylan, John St. Field/early John Martyn/Mick Softley/Roy Harper" styled album. The emphasis is on long tracks "Trial & Judgement" (9 minutes) and "I know You Can't Loose"(5 Mins) showing great songwriting and impressive overlapping guitar parts. Keith Christmas also appeared at the first Glastonbury Festival. Released on RCA.

    3. Roundabout
    4. Ice Man
    5. I Know You Can't Lose

    Loudest Whisper - Children of Lir 1974

    This psychedelic folk classic was recorded in 1974, and has gone on to become one of the rarest records ever issued in Ireland. It's hardly surprising, as it's a wonderful progressive folk concept album, with mystical atmosphere and mellow vocals. A glorious mixture of catchy melodies, soaring harmonies and biting acid guitar.


    1. Overture
    2. Lir’s Lament
    3. Good Day, My Friend
    4. Wedding Song
    5. Children’s Song
    6. Mannanan I

    Chris Britton - As I Am 1969

    As guitarist for the Troggs, Chris Britton made important contributions to the raw British Invaders' sound with his crunchy, wiry style. Though Reg Presley was the Troggs' principal lead singer and songwriter, Britton also took occasional lead vocals and wrote a bit of material on their records, the odd primitive buzzing psychedelia of "Maybe the Madman" and the sultry midtempo rocker "Say Darlin'" (both used on 1968 B-sides) being the highlights in that respect. It's not even too well-known by many big Troggs fans that Britton did an obscure solo LP in 1969, As I Am. A varied batch of period British psychedelic pop songs, sung by Britton in his idiosyncratic, diffidently cool and amused style.

    1. Sit Down Beside Me
    2. Will It Last
    3. That Was The Time
    4. No Sense In Fighting
    5. Maybe Time Will Change You
    6. Fly With Me
    7. If You Really Care
    8. Run And Hide
    9. How Do You Say Goodbye
    10. Sleep My Love
    11. Why Did I Let You Go
    12. Evil Woman
    13. Learn To Love Life You’ll Be Living

    о понятиях

    а что такое «барокко-поп»?

    как как может определить этот термин? — и почему?
    музыкальный стиль?
    некий конкретный музыклальный приём?
    знает ли кто-либо группы, которые успешно позиционировали себя - как «барроко-поп-группы» или те, которые - продержались в таком стиле — весьма ощутимое время?

    лично мне кажется, что такого отдельного стиля — нет, но — можно выделить некую сумму приёмов (стилистические аллюзии на музыку барокко, цитаты из оной и т.д. + использование определённого инструментария), которые обнаруживаются в творчестве весьма многоих поп-рок исполнителей конца 60ых начала 70ых... (тут будет и The Beatles, и Bee Gees, и Nirvana, и Kinks. и Equipe 84, и Mark Wirtz, и Peter & Gordon, и Wallace Collection, Gli Alunni Del Sole....)

    Bee Gees_Odessa (Special edition)


    фрагменты книги Collapse )за диск и книгу спасибо roman_shebalin
    от себя добавлю, что для меня этот альбом - музыка композиторов-романтиков девятнадцатого века, если бы они жили в шестидесятые. Это уже не барокко. Если бы Николай Андреич Римский-Корсаков или Эдвард Элгар воскресли в 1968 году и их бы попросили написать "психоделическую рок-музыку", они бы написали примерно это. А братья, кажется, до сих пор не поняли, какой шедевр они создали.

    Paul Bryan - Listen Of (2008)

    This is the wonderful folk album “Listen of” of Brazilian singer-songwriter PAUL BRYAN aka SÉRGIO SÁ originally released in 1973 on the label Top Tape in Brazil. As the time goes by this record has been forgotten but it was without counting on JAZZANOVA, who proudly re-release it on Sonar Kollektiv 35 years after! And after all those years Listen Of is still a beautiful and soothing record of ballads and romantic songs

    23 ноября - ранние видео Bee Gees в клубе им. Джерри Рубина

      огуречный замок
    • музыкальная тв-передача "Bee Gees Idea TV Show" (1968) с участием "Bee Gees" и группы Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger & The Trinity.
      специально снятая немецким ТВ концептуаkьная программа, где каждая песня была поставлена как своеобразный "психоделический клип" (оригинальные красочные декорации, костюмы, освещение и т.д.)
    • фильм "Cucumber castle" (1970), с участием "Bee Gees", Р.Стигвуда, Лулу и пр. (впервые - с переводом на русский!)
      музыкальный комедийный фильм; в общем-то, типичное британское костюмное "историческое" стебалово тех лет, чем-то близкое по духу к "Монти Пайтонам"
