Bob Dylan: More Blood, More Tracks
Like previous installments of the Bootleg Series, "More Blood, More Tracks" unravels – and somehow deepens – the mystery and magic behind Bob Dylan's storied career. Now at AD, resident Dylanologist Tyler Wilcox dives into the newly released set.
David Crosby: The Aquarium Drunkard Interview
"Good musicians know the value of space, the value of quiet, the value of moments of silence — good musicians are the only ones I want to work with anyway, so there you go."
Now at AD, Croz speaks on his latest with the Lighthouse Band, Here If You Listen.
The Lagniappe Sessions: Mountain Man
Folk trio Mountain Man recently returned with an excellent new lp, Magic Ship. The singers' Lagniappe Session proves a suitable accompaniment to that record, and finds Molly Sarlé, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, and Amelia Meath covering Kacey Musgraves' "Slow Burn" ("We talk a lot about the importance of patience in love and this song explains it, simply and slowly," the band says), Neil Young's "Through My Sails" ("a feeling translated into words")and Fiona Apple's "Hot Knife."
The future is now. Released just over a decade ago, What the Future Sounded Like is a tight, twenty-seven minute, short film documenting the nascent and fascinating birth of electronic music in Britain. Watch it now.
Sarah Davachi: The Aquarium Drunkard Interview
Need some "quietude" in your life? Who doesn't? Catch composer Sarah Davachi's wavelength on her latest, Gave In Rest: "Those moments, of ritualistic quietude — the music became an extension of that."
