Hello All.

Welcome to Volume Eleven of the MixTape series: The Demise Of The Mask. –(Volume One here)__(Volume Two here)__(Volume Three here)__(Volume Four here)__(Volume Five here)__(Volume Six here)__(Volume Seven here)__(Volume Eight here)__(Volume Nine here)__(Volume Ten here)-

I do hope you dig this here MixTape as it features some fine, fine music! There’s some stuff from Harry Nilsson‘s gorgeous 1973 album of classic 20th-century standards, A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night, a great tune from Karen Elson (produced by her then husband, Jack White), and two from Bruce Springsteen‘s 1973 debut: Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. To be honest it took me a long, long time to even give Springsteen a chance, until my buddy Matt Volz insisted that I listen to his first two records, and boy was he right! What a talent!

You’ll hear an 8-track demo outtake of John Lennon‘s powerful anthem, “God“, recording during the sessions for his first post-Beatles solo album, 1970’s John Lennon/Plastic Ono BandParliament is represented with “The Goose,” which features a favorite line of mine:

Now, I’m as happy as a monkey with a peanut machine
Since I found you
 Speaking of the Parliament-Funkadelic collective, their resident keyboard wizard Bernie Worrell is featured here with his project Baby Elephant, which was a collaboration with Stetsasonic member/De La Soul producer Prince Paul and longtime Paul associate Don Newkirk. The Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel song here on this MixTape contains another of my favorite lines:
My only vice is the fantastic prices I charge for being eaten alive. . .
 Oh and do yourself a favor and let yourself really sink in and groove with Polish jazz musician Michal Urbaniak‘s “Atma.” This is an artist I only got clued into from this song being sampled on Beastie Boys tune “The Scoop” on their brilliant 1994 LP Ill Communication. You’ll also hear Josh Tillman (aka Father John Misty) and his fantastic meditation on narcissism and self-medicating, “A Bigger Paper Bag,” off of his newest LP Pure Comedy, which I’ll go on record now in May and say is the best record of 2017.
Bob Dylan is here with one of his finest compositions, “Visions Of Johanna” and you’ll hear what I believe to be David Bowie‘s most terrifying song—released on his 2013 (and sadly penultimate) record The Next Day, here are the lyrics to  “If You Can See Me :
If you can see me I can see you
I could wear your new blue shoes
I should wear your old red dress
And walk to the crossroad, so take this knife
And meet me across the river
Just chutes and ladders
And this is the kiss
American Anna fantastic Alsatian
From nowhere to nothing
And I go way back
Children swarm like thousands of bugs
Towards the light
The beacons above the hill
The stars to the West, the South, the North
And to the East
Now you can say I’ve got a gift of sorts
A fear of rear windows and swinging doors
My love of violence and tenants’ sighs
If you can see me I can see you
If you can see me I can see you
I have seen these bairns wave their fists at God
Swear to destroy the beast, stamping the ground
In their excitement for tomorrow
I could wear your new blue shoes
I should wear your old red dress
And walk to the crossroad, so take this knife
And meet me across the river
I will take your lands and all that lays beneath
The dust of cold flowers, drizzle of dark ashes
I will slaughter your kind, descend from belief
I am the spirit of greed, the lord of theft
Burn all your books and the problems they make
If you can see me I can see you
If you can see me

Yes! There’s all this and a whole bunch of other good stuff so go on down and press play !

MOUTHFUL OF PENNIES PRESENTS: DENDRITES (VOL. 16)

_If you dig the mix then please feel free to pass & post it along; if you dig a particular artist then please support them and go out and pick up some of their stuff.

—  –   ————-______________ ->

Hello All & Welcome to the last MixTape of the year! Yes, it’s installment 16 in the Dendrites series of mixtapes!

 Here you’ll hear two tunes by the psyche-folk, all female american trio, Sunforest. Recorded in 1969 with producer Vic Coppersmith-Heaven (engineer for The Rolling Stones’ Let It Bleed and Black Sabbath’s Vol. 4)  Sunforest wrote whimsical Medieval Times & Renaissance Faire type arrangements and twisted them quite a bit with a swinging London sense of acid-pop and style. First up and opening the mix is the instrumental “Overture to the Sun” which is one of two songs by the group selected by Stanley Kubrick and featured in his 1971 brutal masterpiece, A Clockwork Orange. Later on from this trio you’ll hear the incredibly funky “Magician In The Mountain,” with its slinky groove tones put across perfectly by two musicians from the Jean-Claude Vannier Orchestra (responsible for the music on Serge Gainsbourg’s erotic magnum opus Histoire de Melody Nelson and featured by me on Dendrites Volume 13). With session-guitarist extraordinaire Big Jim Sullivan and Herbie Flowers (whose interlocked, double-tracked upright bass and bass guitar carried Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side” into brilliance) to my mind “Magician In The Mountain is the stand-out track on Sound of Sunforest.
You’ll also get to hear two more tracks by recently deceased Scott Weiland (R.I.P.). First up from him is “Son” which was a highlight for me on his 1998 solo debut, 12 Bar Blues.  (Here you can watch a video of Weiland performing the tune acoustically on MTV’s “120 Minutes” back in 1998).
With its raw pop blister rubbing up against a confused glam swirl, this LP still remains my favorite of all Weiland’s work. Featuring contributions from multi-instrumentalist Victor Indrizzo, phenomenal pianist Brad Mehldau, Martyn LeNoble and Peter DiStefano (bass & guitar for Porno For Pyros!), as well as additional work from Daniel Lanois (production-collaborator for Brian Eno, U2, and Bob Dylan)–this is an album with a genuine sense of exploration and–despite its obvious postures–honest artistic expression. In “Son” Weiland mostly employs a slender vocal in the honeyed upper registers with a lightly-narcotized rasp to its delivery. This perfectly gets across the melancholia that served as its inspiration. As Weiland would not have any children until at least two years later, the song serves as a rumination on a terminated pregnancy he and his girlfriend chose, and what might have been (an emotional topic he previously touched upon with Stone Temple Pilots in the closing track for their sophomore record, Purple: “Kitchenware & Candy Bars“).
Later on down the mix you will hear Weiland with his band mates in Stone Temple Pilots on what has always been one of my favorite tracks by this group: “Lounge Fly.” With its elliptic lyrics pushed up from a hungry gut only to be buried again, and pushed up again–a cycle–and the music coiled and percussive–this is not so much circling, but the sound of a man prowling around a drain…and all the while Weiland insisting that you know, “this is really happening to me.” “Lounge Fly” is followed by yet another song concerning sex and the desperate search for emotional connection: “Chloe In The Afternoon” by St. Vincent. Borrowing its title from the 1972 French film by Éric Rohmer (which was much later remade into the Chris Rock comedy I Think I Love My Wife) this song is an amazing display of corroded textures and strange syncopation.
There’s also some D’Angelo; some Elvis; some Mark Lanegan; a dry collaboration between William S. Burroughs and R.E.M from the 1996 collection, Songs in the Key of X – Music From And Inspired By “The X-Files; Matthew E. White and his marvelous Spacebomb crew demonstrating how a tune bled of vigor (and guitar) can still be so damn funky…albeit a drowsy funk; and you’ll hear one of my favorite vocalists, Martina Topley-Bird doing a stripped down version of her own, Snowman” (you can watch a lovely 2012 live performance of it and more here).
Well, enjoy and I hope you are all still listening in the New Year!
All the best to you & yours,
Bobby Calero

_____________________                       _________________                      _________________   _

On to the next moment.

      Was that our allotted life, an incessant testing of the tensile limits of these near imperceptible vacuums that in part comprise our cognizance? This followed by a fleeting recess in order that we may measure our instruments. To quote Peggy Lee quoting Jerry Leiber quoting Thomas Mann: “Is that all there is?” Is that all there is:——spill-and-coil-and-witness-and-move—spill-and-coil-and-witness-and-move—spill-and-coil-and-witness-and-move—spill-and-coil-and-witness-and-move—spill-and-coil-and-witness-and-move—spill-and-coil-and-witness-and-move—spill-and-coil-and-witness-and-move—spill-and-coil-and-witness-and-move—spill-and-coil-and-witness-and-move—spill-and-coil-and-witness-and-move——

No! There’s more. How often do we forget that what we discover with these instruments is a truth only relative to the instrument implemented? Yet, we habitually live here in the echo of a crowded hollow; we inhabit a theater we for our part create.

It was no wonder we often feel that life might only be maneuvered through by becoming one’s own audience. It was no wonder we sometimes notice that we’ve slid into a center seat in a middle aisle. We watch the film: spliced, taped, and scored towards a recognizable narrative structure and genre by young, conglomerate chimeras we call the self. This conceptual substitution—this thing that seemed to be formed from a slack mass of compacted fragments, while each particle of these fragments themselves are likewise only but a pile of disparate measures, which cling like wet garments and remain so by a mutual pursuit of functionality—this bundle.

Say the word: self. Say it again: self. Say the little syllable: self. Say it again: self. Feel how it plays alone at the utmost edge of your mouth—of you.

      Self. A concise whistle along the middle curl of a mass of lashed muscles suspended in the mouth; then with a succinct roll of the vocal cords comes that tap of the tongue where the enamel scoop of the maxillary central incisors (11 and 21) taper to sit in the alveolar ridge; subsequently, under another continuous stream of breath, the vocal folds cease to vibrate as the bottom lip softly presses at the caps of the top front teeth: self. Is that us; is this entity best encapsulated and best described by the catchall, audible, mechanical wave of pressure and displacement that results from this sequence of events? Was there an entity somewhere in that closed order? Culture the whole world over seemed a ceremony to honor that closed order.

Say the word: self. Say it again: self. Listen. Say the silly little syllable: self. Say it again: self. Listen to the sound: self.

Then there was the chomp on nothing that produces the little letter I.

      Self and I, a myriad of supple mirrors and chromatic lenses perpetually rearranged through the fluid to intimate the infinite image guessed at as required by a particular moment. Believed by whom? Who is it that plays interior decorator with these reflective planes and colored, gelatin filters? Where is it? What should we call it?

Nature is a temple where living pillars

Let sometimes emerge confused words;

Man passes through forests of symbols

Which observe him with a familiar glance.

…She would not claim to understand this poem, but there was something she recognized. She received it as an echo emancipated from her own hidden hollows. She felt this poem as if it were a subtle worm—or a perfumed scent in search of form. It had fidgeted towards her lobes and passed her a little key tethered to a long, long thread. The digits of her thoughts felt too dull to guess the key’s true shape. Likewise, she was dumb to what lock it could correspond, or just where this strand might lead. Eager with pleasant confusion: she fondled at the tremors of little wet questions.

A MOUTHFUL OF PENNIES PRESENTS: 2 01 2

Hello All,

If you’re anything like me then you like to let music marinate in your guts for a bit before finding a place for it on the shelf. So, even though I feel that this might be a bit premature on my part but with the year of 2013 rapidly approaching its conclusion, I’d like to present a MixTape that collects many of my favorite tunes from 2012.

Oh, and I’m sure that it might seem like an oversight on my part but this mix does not include the trackAbove My Ground” by Landlady, even though I stated before that it was just about the best new song I heard that year. Seeing as it has already been featured in its very own post I figured I’d give some other choice tunes a chance to shine here on this mixtape.

However, here’s the video for what is still my favorite song of 2012:

I must say, however, that I believe my top 3 albums for that year are:

Fear Fun by Father John Misty

Tempest by Bob Dylan

The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do by Fiona Apple
