St. Vincent - St. Vincent (2014)

St. Vincent (a.k.a. Annie Clark) has her own unique flavor of quirky pop-art-rock. Maybe you could call her Kate Bush for the new millennium? Her sound is more aggressive than Ms. Bush though. Some echoes of Talking Heads on this one, which makes sense given that her previous project (Love This Giant) was a collaboration with David Byrne.

She's a pretty sick guitarist too, though her studio material only hints at it; check out this live performance (great song, and closes with an extended guitar solo):

Aw man, LOVE Annie Clark. Seen her live, and can confirm that she has chops for days. Saw her in a tiny venue before she blew up and she melted my face off :)

Also enjoyed seeing her in Noisey's Guitar Moves series, where guitarists share secrets to their signature "moves."

(learning that Polka is the secret to Josh Homme's style was fun :) )

Not in metalhead mode this AM. Listening to some classic fusion instead - Return To Forever's self-titled debut, released back in 1972.

Spock's Beard - The Kindness Of Strangers (1998)

Great Prog (Neo-prog?) Rock album that draws on multiple '70s Prog influences without sounding like a total '70s throwback.

Opeth - Morningrise (1996)

Their 2nd album. Great material marred by some seriously weedy production. My biggest gripe is that the drums sound like they were recorded from the far end of a football field, then mixed about 10 dB too low. C'mon, this is aggressive music -- the drums need to have some punch instead of being more of a background effect! :-?
