  • Pie Plano & Gueas Raras (Chile, 2004)

    8 Apr 2013, 04:31 by futurolvidado

    Pie Plano & Gueas Raras fue una banda de Folk-Psicodelia formada en Curicó, Chile por Mónica Cruz en voz, junto a los hermanos Gonzalo Carrasco en guitarra/composición y Marco Carrasco en voz y composición.
    En 2004 editaron "Pie Plano & Gueas Raras" el que a la postre sería su único álbum.
    Producido de manera independiente, el disco contiene 13 cortes construidos y ejecutados pulcramente, sin mayores ambiciones en términos sonoros.
    Un trabajo sobrio donde sobresale el desempeño de la guitarra, que ante la ausencia de bajo asume un rol protagónico en lo rítmico, como también en armonía y melodías. Ocasionalmente hay intervenciones flauta dulce, teclado y pequeñas percusiones no programadas.
    Sobre la minimalista instrumentación -y como formando un todo- se apoyan las voces de Mónica y Marco para cantar metafóricas y surrealistas líricas o, como en el caso de "Itagana" simplemente ininteligibles.
    La estructura musical de cada una de las composiciones, no obstante haber sido concebido el disco como un trabajo conceptual en términos líricos, posee la suya propia y distintiva de las demás.-

  • Stevie Ray Vaughan

    27 Aug 2010, 07:04 by keyokey

    Stevie Ray Vaughan

    Was a Grammy Award-winning American guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Eighteen albums of Vaughan's work have been released.
    Vaughan was inspired to play guitar by his older brother, Jimmie Vaughan, and was influenced by such players as Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Guy. After a few years as a sideman in and around Austin, Vaughan formed the band Double Trouble, with whom he made four successful studio albums and established a reputation as one of the foremost blues guitarists in the world. He was noted for using the Fender Stratocaster, with several guitars being made in tribute to Vaughan, including a Signature Stratocaster and a replica of his famous Strat named "Lenny". In 1986, after years of substance abuse from alcohol and cocaine, he spent a month in drug rehabilitation, and remained clean and sober for the final four years of his life, until his death in 1990 in a helicopter crash.

    On February 22, 2000, Vaughan was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in Washington, D.C., being one of only 79 performers to be inducted. He also won several W. C. Handy Awards, during his lifetime and posthumously, including Entertainer of the Year and Instrumentalist of the Year in 1984. In 2003, he was ranked #7 in Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. Classic Rock Magazine ranked him #3 in their list of the 100 Wildest Guitar Heroes in 2007


    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    “You see, we are here, as far as I can tell, to help each other; our brothers, our sisters, our friends, our enemies. That is to help each other and not hurt each other. And sometimes to help them we have got to help ourselves.”
    ~Stevie Ray Vaughan~ (Stephen Ray Vaughan)

    The Sky is crying, and so are we...peace!

    Hey guys/gals, its been to long. I know I haven't been here much in the past year or 2.. mainly because I have been busy with my life, such as work, and school, I have also been trying to improve my health, which is going along smoothly.

    But the main reason I ditched this site was because lets face it, it sucks hard core.. they made all these freckin' changes for nothing..

    So thats right, I think its already not really a surprise, but I am done here, I hate to disapoint you or anything, but I have lost interest, and I don't have time for Last FM..

  • Three years of diversity?

    8 Sep 2009, 18:33 by joiletjake

    I can't believe how quick time passes by. It has now been three years since I joined last.fm on a (sunny? I can't remember any more) September day soon after I had moved to my new student apartment. I remember that I had red about this place in an article in the local Metro newspaper which I by chance picked up at the train station. I thought last.fm sounded interesting and decided to join some days later. I guess I'll write this years journal about the same things as usual: To see how my listening habits have changed during the past year.

    Last year I started my journal with writing that "This year I feel that my taste have changed and have become more broader than it was just three or four months ago". What I didn't know at the time was that this was nothing compared to what happened in early 2009. Spotify is the cause of this big change and it can be described as a free radio station where you choose what you want to listen to. There are relatively much to choose from and you can listen to a whole album in one go if you like.

    The new additions to my library this year thanks to Spotify: Les Paul, Lightnin' Hopkins, Keb' Mo', Taj Mahal, Mike Bloomfield, She & Him and the latest addition Max Roach just to mention a few. Though I have mainly been listening to, for me, new albums by artists that I previously are familiar with, for example B.B. King, Django Reinhardt, Ginger Baker, Robert Plant and some 20 other artists. That's quite a lot but there are still lots of stuff left to discover.

    It hasn't been happening much on the Zeppelin front this year, except for numerous new and old live recordings which I have listened more or slightly less than last year. Osaka in 1971 and the European tour in 1973 are among those who have got increased listening time this year. I guess this will change in October when John Paul Jones (Ok, Them Crooked Vultures) new album comes out and replaces Zeppelin in my play list for a while.

    I have mainly been listening to a show recorded on June 1st, 1968 when it comes to The Yardbirds and particularly the nice psychedelic medley "I Wish You Would/Hey Gyp" which features one of Page's best pre Zeppelin guitar solos. The whole concert (and the gig from May 31 the same year) is very interesting and instructive if one wants to understand where the ideas for the songs on LZ1 originally came from. Led Zeppelin did in fact pass the 15,000 mark in August this year and has at this moment 15,199 registered scrobbles, or 20% of my total plays! Though I'm not sure if that is something to be proud of or worried about...

    74,875 tracks have been scrobbled at this point which is 18,700 more than last year. What exactly have changed on my overall top list then? Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Jefferson Airplane have all passed Eric Clapton on his, now very stagnated, place with 999 scrobbles. Not very surprising really but still a interesting thing to note. Clapton's old bands, Cream and Derek and the Dominos are however securing their places on the list more and more for every month that goes by.

    The newer additions to my top 50 list this year are as I predicted last year: Davy Graham and the great Ali Farka Touré who has just recently made it Top 48. He would be higher if the album In The Heart Of The Moon by Ali Farka Touré & Toumani Diabaté would have been scrobbled under the same name. The album features some very nice Kora inspired music and I warmly recommend it to anyone who likes music and .

    It's hard to say what the following year will feature on the music front since I'll be on my way to Austria later this week and will be staying there for over four months. The too small laptop hard drive (they always are!) will prevent me from listening to whatever I want to, but I guess that I have eight months after my trip to recover and try to restore my last.fm lists from total stagnation :P
  • REAL Music Statistics

    8 Jan 2009, 05:42 by jbembe

    One of the best sites I've found for music listening stats is the iTunes Registry. I've forgotten about it for a long time, but just checked it out recently and its more slick than ever. My favorite features are:

    total playcounts by Albums, or Artists

    and the fact that it takes into account the playtime. So, for example, if you listen to a 15 minute song 5 times and a 2 minute song 10 times, saying you listen to the 2 minute song more because it has a high playcount isn't completely accurate.

    Anyway, check it out and you will find a new way of looking at your music stats. One caveat, it depends on your iTunes library playcount so if that gets reset, the analysis will change, unlike last.fm.
