Hello All! Hello World!

Well hello there, who needs the Spoofity app when you’ve got another hour and 20 minutes of music from A Mouthful Of Pennies? So come   _Settle Down Amongst The Blossoms_ the latest A.M.O.P. Mixtape!

 

This one features two fantastic tunes by Dolly Parton (one covered by the incredible singer Bettye LaVette). I just read about Parton’s Imagination Library program, which has donated 100 million books to children over the last 23 years! So good on her! She sure is talented. You’ll also hear Erykah Badu, two from Karen Dalton’s 1971, Harvey Brooks produced LP In My Own Time, and one of my favorite Bono vocal performances from back in 1999-2000. Speaking of vocals there’s an amazing one by Tina Turner (alongside her then husband Ike) doing a rendition of the Beatles’ 1969 single, Get Back. On a personal side-note (and it’s my blog so the whole thing is sort of a personal side-note) Tina Turner is the first woman I can remember being really physically attracted to, when I saw her as The Acid Queen in Ken Russell’s 1975 film based upon The Who’s 1969 rock opera album Tommy.

I must have been about 8 years old. What that says about me and my arrow I just don’t know, but it might at least explain why Beyond Thunderdome has always been my favorite of the Mad Max films.

Oh and there’s what to me is a delightful work by the brilliant artist Dory Previn. Along the same lines of Carolyn Elliott praising Jesus Christ as a “queer witch,” which really sounds nice to me; Previn sings:

Jesus was a androgyne
Jesus was a he and she
Jesus was a freako baby
Just like you and me
Jesus was a pagan
Jesus was a priest
Jesus was a beauty
Jesus was a beast

 

Well, there’s all this and a whole lot more! So…

Au Clair de la Lune (French Nursery Song)

In the light of the moon, Pierrot, my friend
Loan me your pen to write something down
My candle’s dead, I’ve got no flame to light it
Open your door, for the love of God!

In the light of the moon, Pierrot replied
I don’t have a pen, I’m in bed
Go to the neighbor’s, I think she’s there
Because someone just lit a match in the kitchen

In the light of the moon, likable Harlequin
Knocked on the brunette’s door, and she responded immediately
Who’s knocking like that? And he replied
Open your door, for the God of Love!

In the light of the moon, you can barely see anything
Someone looked for a pen, someone looked for a flame
In all of that looking, I don’t know what was found
But I do know that those two shut the door behind them.

Hello All! I’ve got a special triptych-MixTape treat for you all today…featuring some bounce, a little wilt, petal melt, and a whole slew of protean tunes to accompany you at the tail-end/entrance of shifting seasons. …Perhaps best used when paired with working on a creative project of some sort or just watering house plants, or by those who suffer from insomnia under the sun.

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
