AMN Picks of the Week

My intent here is to begin posting, at a frequency of about once a week, a list of the new music that has caught my attention that week. This is the first of hopefully many installments. All of the releases listed below I’ve heard for the first time this week and come recommended.

Grimaud, Dominique – Les Quatre Directions (2008, free jazz / electronic / experimental)
Spontaneous Music Ensemble – Oliv (1969, free jazz)
Shipp, Matthew – Cosmic Suite (2008, free jazz)
Swell, Steve / Rivers of Sound Ensemble – News from the Mystic Auricle (2008, large orchestra free jazz)
Braxton, Anthony / Chris Dahlgren – ABCD (2008, jazz duets)
Liles, Andrew – Black Paper (2006, ambient / electronic experimental)
Happy Apple – Peace Between Our Companies (2005, indie-rock / jazz)

  1. Hey Mike,

    Do you think you could add is below each album just a short style description; in this fashion maybe?
    electronic/experimental/rock or jazz/ambient/eerie
    something in this general direction, perhaps, if it’s not too much to ask?

    Thanks and great service!
