Well, what have you got?
I don't go broke
And I do it a lot
I do it a lot, yeah

You can't understand a user's mind
But try, with your books and degrees
If you let yourself go and opened your mind
I'll bet you'd be doing like me
And it ain't so bad

The Bad Plus

The Bad Plus is an amazing jazztrio consisting of Ethan Iverson (piano), Reid Anderson (double bass) and Dave King (drums) where I've recently fallen in love with. This group makes truly beautiful music. I'd call it free jazz. Free jazz is, the names says it, jazz, without any conventions; play-what-you-feel-like-playing jazz. Free jazz features stuff like improvisations, non-conventional chords, rhythms and other ways of making the music interesting and, in general, better.

I got to know this group when I read that they've covered Flim, a song from Aphex Twin. Curious whether it was any good, I listened to it and loved it. Thus, the expanding of my The Bad Plus collection of songs began...

These three musicians are putting out some of the most enjoyable, interesting, great and, most important of all, diverse music I've heard in quite some time -- the songs can have any mood, create whatever feeling, but they constantly amaze me.
And I'm not kidding - the songs really amaze me. Some more than others, but they amaze me nonetheless.

I have a great deal of respect for this group and really wish I knew them before the North Sea Jazz festival because then I would have gone to see and hear them.

Recommended songs, a selection:
- Silence is the Question
- Flim
- Heart of Glass
- Big Eater
- Prehensile Dream
- Anthem for the Earnest
- The Empire Strikes Backwards

With Teeth is decent, but gets a lot better toward the end. The first half of it feels like a collection of songs (which is not what NIN has done before - they do ALBUMS), but it gets more cohesive in the second half.
Speaking of NIN, I've been listening to a lot of Tweaker recently (Chris Vrenna (NIN drummer) solo project). They've got two albums...kinda techno, kinda NINish. Some instrumentals, some guest vocalists.

Yeah that's what I loved and hated about Downward Spiral. As an album, it was like a movie where you couldn't miss any parts like the transition from A Warm Place to Eraser or comparisons of the "character" from Mr. Self-Destruct to Hurt. My problem was, with the exception of a few songs, I could rarely plug in A song and listen.

BTW Were you as shocked as I when plugging in "All the Love in the World" for the first time on With_Teeth? Like past first songs on CDs were the hard rockin Head Like a Hole and Mr. Self-Destruct..... then we had techno love.

Yeah, IMO, You Know what you Are would have been a better lead song. It hits hard from the beginning and really gets your attention.
Does Love is not Enough sound like it should be a Lenny Kravitz song to anyone else but me?

Strapped down on my bed.
Feet cold eyes red.
I'm out of my head.
Am I alive? Am I dead?
Sunkist, Sudafed,
Gyroscopes, Infrared,
Won't help - brain dead.
Can't remember what they said
God damn, shit the bed

Man, I don't like that song... I also don't like it that I don't like it, seeing whose song it is.

Ars, I think you'll be interested in this, and of course, possibly others as well:
I've been listening to LTJ Bukem's Some blue Notes of Drum 'N' Bass album, which is a collection of his and other electronica artists' songs. While I normally think LTJ Bukem is great, on this album his songs -albeit very good- are not the highlights but rather, the songs of some of the lesser known artists.

Take for example Peshay's Jazz Lick. For me, this track is handsdown the best of the album. I've never heard of Peshay, but the song is so full of spirit and energy, I cannot help but want to hear this when I'm dancing. I always long for the song to continue when it doesn't.
MC Conrad's Futures Call is also an amazing track. MC Conrad is by no means not a big name, but his track still needs to be mentioned - it's that damn good. 9 minutes and 11 seconds of non-pinpointable greatness -- I have no idea what makes the track so great, but it's everything and nothing in particular. The drums kick in in a fantastic way. The track has this amazing feel to it and never loses its strength.
Third best track of the album is Dan Scott's Tokyo Dawn. Great set-up, right from the start. The mood is atmospheric and when the rhythms start, they impress immediately: great stuff, really. The rhythms give the song a completely different setting, but the feel of the song stays nonetheless and the song remains the same (no Led Zeppelin pun).
Runner-up is Esp & Substance's Run The Gauntlet (Vocal). Awesome track with great vocals but also, and this is something that most of the tracks that focus on the vocals miss, great music accompanying those vocals.

Be sure to tune in next time for Global Communication and their greatest undiscovered masterpiece Pentamerous Metamorphosis...

I didn't like it at first, but after really listening to the lyrics (if you can call them that), I realize it for the true genius it is.
