So, it’s Sunday, so time for two very different artists to be foistered upon you.
First up, legendary member of the Incredible String Band, Robin Williamson.
I had been aware of the Incredible String Band for a long time, but hadn’t really closely listened to any of their albums, until I read a feature in The Wire a few months ago on Robin Williamson. There were six tracks of his solo stuff on their site, so I devoured these and set about sampling all the albums through my local library. See what you think of the bard:
From Skirting the River Road
Robin Williamson -‘The Four Points Are Thus Beheld.’ mp3
Robin Williamson -‘The Journey.’ mp3
From The Iron Stone
Robin Williamson -‘Bacchus.’ mp3
Robin Williamson -‘The Climber.’ mp3
From The Seed At Zero
Robin Williamson -‘The Seed At Zero.’ mp3
Robin Williamson -‘The Barley.’ mp3
And now for something completely different…
I don’t know if you would call Maps shoegazing or Electronica or both, even, but i think they would appeal to fans of both genres. I love these three tracks, and think you should give these a spin (from the album We Can Create:
Maps-‘You Don’t Know Her Name.’ mp3
Maps-‘It Will Find You.’ mp3
As always, if you like what you hear, check out you local independent record shop.
Have a good week!
