Monkey Mind – 09/27/2010

This week’s collection. Hope someone out there loves Steve Reich’s “Tehillim” half as much as I do, and that new Esperanza Spalding is just amazing. There’s a great review of the Selecter’s dark, joyful, angry 1980 debut here. Enjoy.

Monkey Mind – 09/06/2010

Another scattered selection. Hope you enjoy. For what it’s worth, that Simple Gifts CD of Shaker vocal pieces is wonderful stuff, and has me doing something I usually don’t like to do: read large sections of a book online. In this case it’s a sharp, informative history of the Shakers, The Shaker Experience in America: A History of the United Society of Believers, available at Google Books. The early chapters are so good I’m not even bothered by the occasional unavailable pages. I had no idea the Shakers were such punks. Lunatic fanatic punks, but still. (Oh, and reverse the song/artist names for the 2nd cut; the band is Frou Frou.)
