Louis Armstrong & His Orchestra, "When The Saints Go Marching In"

It's been a while, so a quick reminder of one of our ground rules around here: I am not qualified to talk about jazz.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience, "Purple Haze"

Geez, got some real warhorses here today!

Michel Anoia, "Nigredo"

We've got another Total Dissonance Worship record here, and another banger. This is black metal, but it's unmistakably French. And not just from song titles or whatever, there's something about the guitar tone here that strikes me as particularly French. I'm not entirely sure why, perhaps it reminds me of Deathspell Omega? Anyway, fun stuff. Can I call this fun?

McKinley Dixon, "make a Poet Black"

Which is more avant garde here? The actively dissonant, unpleasant extreme metal? Or the jazz-rap-spoken word album? Fortunately for me, I don't have to answer that dipshit question! Who would ask that sort of thing?

Cyber Vision, "If U Want It"

Yeah, all right, let's let that take us out of here. Why not?

Joshua Buergel
