Al Foul

The 29 songs recorded herein compose a heartfelt and endearing tribute album to the local downtown music staple Al Foul. Ever the consistent blue collar troubadour, his 20 plus years has received 20 plus covers of his song catalog by friends and peers. The songs are a testament to quality songwriting and the power of reinterpretation, and a masterclass in Americana (at times country and at others bluesy but rock n roll throughout). Unfortunate circumstance is often the birth of great art, mostly because of the amount heart that goes into it. Al Foul is currently undergoing treatment for throat cancer. Proceeds of the album will go to help with costs.

This Friday we have local beatmakers

Sleepparalysis Dreamchamber crafts moody ethereal soundscapes with percussive back beats. Soundtracks to those future post apocalyptic cityscapes you hav’nt dreamed about yet…but in a good way.

dv0id is still very much about his 404 production and off kilter boom baps. With BB_treats2 ( a tenetive follow up to his 2018 long form mix bb_treats) he returns with his signature jazz samples all chopped up and obscured and lets them hang out just long enough for the loop to become an earworm and then its on the next one.

Preorder Shadowforms from Trees Speak

“Trees Speak’s new album ‘Shadow Forms’ is a blend of 1970s German electronic and ‘motorik’ Krautrock instrumentals (think Harmonia, Can, Cluster, Popul Vuh, Neu!), haunting and powerful 1960s & 1970s soundtracks (think Italian prog-rock Goblin and John Carpenter horror movies, Morricone and existential John Barry spy movies), together with a New Nork no wave electronic synth and guitar analogue DIY-ness (think Suicide, anything on Soul Jazz’s New York Noise series or Eno’s New York No Wave)!” – via Soul Jazz Records
