Turner Williams Jr. – Briars On A Dewdrop

by Record Crates United
2d ago
On Briars on a Dewdrop, Turner Williams Jr. brews up a heady stew of manipulated eclectic string sounds that is truly out of this world. Available on April 7th through Feeding Tube Records, this album features the Alabama-based artist armed with an electric shahi baajas, gaz  and a whole cornucopia of effect pedals. Williams, of whom you may know from his work under the Ramble Tamble moniker or his work with Elkhorn, improvises here with a psychedelically opened mind, where texture, curiosity and tone appear to be leading each jam. The sounds and moods of this album were so unique, abstra ..read more

Joseph Allred – For The Fallen Dawn

Joseph Allred’s latest, For The Fallen Dawn, is a collection of meditative solo instrumentals that takes your mind through muggy river baptisms, over scorching dunes under a Saharan sky and deep within shadowy forests at twilight. Available now through Island House Recordings, this album features the Tennessee-dwelling Allred drawing on elements of blues fingerpicking, Spanish lute and Arabic oud modes and rhythms. I believe Allred plays on the guitar, lute and banjo for this record, but truthfully, they play the instruments in such a way that their close lineage is prominently revealed, and i ..read more

Dorothy Moskowitz, of the pioneering ’60’s experimental rock group, The United States of America, is still pushing boundaries and defining what it is to be an “experimental artist.” Available today from our friends at Tompkins Square Records, Under an Endless Sky is a wholly unique beast. The record finds the legendary Moskowitz combining her creative forces with the equally adventurous electronic composer Francesco Paolo Paladino and composer and writer Luca Chino Ferrari. Together, along with a crack team of string and woodwind players and percussionists, they sculpted an alien soundscape fu ..read more

1w ago
With the assistance of Jerry David DeCicca and The Black Swans, the last record by the recently departed cult folk rocker Bob Martin will be released through Worried Songs on May 19. Martin, a Lowell, Mass. born singer-songwriter, recorded a handful of albums sporadically between the 1970’s and 2010’s, and is perhaps best known for his debut LP from 1972 on RCA, the melancholic Midwest Farm Disaster. Over the years, he developed a small, but loyal fanbase, which included DeCicca. In 2008, DeCicca began to work with Martin on Seabrook, but it remained shelved until 2021, when Martin’s health wa ..read more

It’s Friday, so get your day started right with the laidback funk grooves of Hot Mustard’s latest single, “The End of Time.” Hot Mustard, a psych-leaning instrumental funk group headed by Antibalas’ Jordan McLean and TV On The Radio’s Dave “Smoota” Smith, is as smooth and mellow as ever. Joined by Ross Bogan (Doom Flamingo, Lureto) on Hammond organ and Alanna Royale on vocals, the group heads deeper into a soul-jazz zone on this track. Taken from their upcoming sophomore LP, Seconds, which will be released on March 31st on Color Red, “The End of Time” features a snapping beat, melanc ..read more

Lord & Sharp’s Kiwi is a breezy ocean of astral guitars and synthesizers that transports you to a peaceful headspace with each and every listen. Available today through Aural Canyon Records, Kiwi finds the Texan experimental duo of Neil Lord (Future Museums) and Mike Sharp (of Joys Union Group) channelling their inner Elkhorn by improvising on electric and 12-string acoustic guitars over a hazy sea of cosmic electro sounds. Across both sides of this cassette, Lord & Sharp’s expansive fingerpicking meanders and coasts at a stoic yet leisurely pace, while spiraling tendrils of reverberat ..read more
