Address Los Angeles: 3101 S Western: 21st Century Ltd.

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 20:51:04 +0000

Address Los Angeles, a recurring feature on Aquarium Drunkard, explores the lesser-to-unknown corners of LA: be it an address, an artist, or a fleeting thought. By 1905 Jacob Adloff was enjoying a great degree of success. In the 27 years since he’d moved to America from his native Germany, he’d made a name for himself […]

Abadane :: Freedom (Hourya)

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 18:18:06 +0000

The enduring enigma of the unknown. A cornerstone of various compilations (both authorized and not) focused on subrosa 70s North Afican folk and pop, Abadane was a short-lived Algerian outfit — “Freedom (Hourya)” is their legacy. Abadane :: Freedom (Hourya)

Mor Thiam :: Ayo Ayo Nene (Blessing For The New Born Baby)

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 14:00:35 +0000

In 2008, via the first volume of Jazzman Record’s Spiriual Jazz series, I stumbled upon Senegalese drummer and bandleader Mor Thiam’s “Ayo Ayo Nene.” Cut in 1973, the track was originally found on Thiam’s Drums of Fire — a record that was beyond scarce. Until now. Jazzman has just reissued the LP. I cannot possibly […]

The Beans :: Spill The Beans

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 22:23:34 +0000

With flowers tucked behind their ears and thumbs pointed West (cue music…) the youth of the mid-60s were hip to turn on, tune in and drop out. The high desert residents of Phoenix, Arizona were no strangers to the unearthly vibrations that were coming from the Bay Area. Local freakazoid Bill Spooner, later of The […]

Bash & Pop :: Anything Could Happen

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 17:18:46 +0000

26 years ago, when the Replacements called it quits the first time, it was hard to know what to expect from any of the individual members. For a brief moment though, it was Tommy Stinson who looked like he might best carry the band’s torch. 1993’s Friday Night Is Killing Me by his band Bash […]

Catching Up With Foxygen: The Aquarium Drunkard Interview

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 18:38:34 +0000

In a relatively short period of time, Foxygen has managed to please, vex and elude a lot of listeners. Needlessly so, it seems. Over the course of a afternoon in conversation at member Jonathan Rado’s Los Angeles home, what emerges is that in spite of anyone’s desire to nail down outside influences, Foxygen is about […]

Banana :: LIVE

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 17:07:37 +0000

Composer Josiah Steinbrick suggests that LIVE, the new four-song EP (mini-LP, maybe?) by his Banana ensemble is “For those in search of a bath, a rinse, a departure, or an expansion.” Who among us couldn’t go for that? Recorded live on reel to reel tape for airing as a special program on Dublab, LIVE taps […]

Shirley Collins :: The Aquarium Drunkard Interview

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 18:31:53 +0000

Including Shirley Collins’ album Lodestar in our 2016 Year in Review feature, we wrote: “Returning with her first recording in 38 years, song collector, treasurer, and interpreter Shirley Collins unites ancient English folk ballads to Cajun reveries, presenting even Lodestar’s 16th century material resolutely in the present tense. She finds dark humor and pathos in […]

Broadcast :: Black Session (La Maison de la Radio: Paris, France)

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 22:34:00 +0000

(We originally shared this session in January 2011 shortly after Trish Keenan’s passing. I re-aired the set last month on the radio show. As promised, here it is, re-upped, after the jump.) If you never had the pleasure of seeing Broadcast on tour, particularly in their early years with keyboardist Roj Stevens and guitarist Tim […]

Gold Star :: Sonny’s Blues

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 13:00:01 +0000

Gold Star is Marlon Rabenreither. On his forthcoming lp, Big Blue — named after the ramshackle Hollywood home where he produced and recorded the album — Rabenreither shines and redefines the sound of his last two efforts. A Los Angeles native, the resulting album is an autobiographical work as indebted to writers Fante, Baldwin and […]

Hart Valley Drifters :: Sitting On Top Of The World

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 13:00:37 +0000

“My name is Jerry Garcia. I play banjo on the old-timey songs and guitar on the bluegrass songs. And do a lot of lead singing too. Which I am not proud of.” With a bit of self-deprecation and a guffaw we pay witness to the earliest known studio artifacts of Jerry Garcia. A scant 20 […]

The End Is At Hand: Volumes 1-3 / A Homemade Psych Compilation

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 13:30:24 +0000

Our collaboration with BlackForrestry continues. Witness – The End Is At Hand: Volume Three. Similar to volumes one and two, this homemade collection rounds up super-obscure, often private press, outsider psychedelic guitar and folk music from the 60s and 70s…all with the underlying theme of the Jesus People Movement. During the early 1970s the Movement […]
