Serenade (2014) / american primitive, solo guitar / Dying For Bad Music. The busiest guitar slinger in business right now is Daniel Bachman and after he got picked up by Tompkin Square Records he shot himself into your dad's favorite radio station (yes, WFMU, but I mean NPR) and several times around the world (if world means Orient and Occident and North-America back and forth).

Washington City Paper

(Illustrations by Max Kornell) From harmless service organizations to election-rigging worldwide conspiracies, every secret society worth its shadowy rep cultivates an air not only of exclusivity but also of mysticism. Record collectors are typically thought of as irascible loners, but in the Washington of the ’50s and early ’60s, there existed a group of scruffy young blues and folk fans who could’ve given the Illuminati a run for their all-seeing eyes. But most of all, they inspired admiration and awe. Fahey remains the most well-known member of the club: the great, tragic player whose elegant fusion of blues, country, and folk he called “American primitive guitar.” In 1959, Fahey went to the Frederick, Md., home of Joe Bussard, another collector who ran his own label, Fonotone. John Fahey. Delta-Slider’s Tops of the Decade. Hey, you aren’t a real blog if you don’t do a Top Ten list, Best of the Decade or some other sort of list that says, “I know something you don’t…” Well I don’t know shit, but here it goes anyway… in no particular order:

John Fahey. Dfbm #62 ~ Play For The Spring / american primitive, solo guitar, psych folk, acoustic guitar, mixtape / Dying For Bad Music. Ensemble HD Live at the Happy Dog. This double album chronicles the energy and intimacy of bringing some of Cleveland's finest classical musicians into an atmosphere not usually associated with "serious" music.

Ensemble HD Live at the Happy Dog

As described in the March 2013 issue of The Economist: "Mr Smith says they have learned from the crowd not to dumb down their fare, or churn out popular tunes. "Mozart and Schubert did not work well in that setting," he says of his programme for their first performance. "Those pieces sounded like elevator music. " So he started programming more challenging, ambitious pieces by 20th-century composers such as Dmitri Shostakovich, Anton Webern and Arvo Part.

These divert the crowd from their beers and the awed silence after a piece, before the applause, can be as beautiful as the music itself. " Extra care in the recording process was taken to capture the atmosphere and vibe of the bar while presenting the dynamic and colorful ensemble work of the musicians. Scissor Tail Records. Wes Tirey – Home Recordings (2014) / american primitive, lofi, folk, instrumental / Dying For Bad Music.

Wes Tirey was recently touring Italy and in the meantime the tape label Orange Milk Records released a cassette with Tirey's homerecordings.

Wes Tirey – Home Recordings (2014) / american primitive, lofi, folk, instrumental / Dying For Bad Music

Orange Milk Records usually releases experimental synthy bleep drone cosmo electronica and with Tirey they got the obligatory acoustic expat on board and I would say it fits in well. He's performing legthy acoustic guitar instrumentals, improvised and ready-mades all in good and autentic lofi fashion, with tape-hiss, recorder clicks and creacky woodfloors. I really love the sparse and barebone mood. It's similar to the bleak solo guitar releases of Zachary Hay (aka Bronze Horse, The Dove Azima, Green Glass). I wonder about the story behind Her Name Was Jackie. Player. Gabriel Slavitt – No Skinny Minnie (2014) / solo guitar, american primitive, singer-songwriter, garage rock / Dying For Bad Music. Mostly electrified solo guitar tunes by Gabriel Slavitt from Philadelphia who is also working as an artist in the field of mixed media and sculpture.

Gabriel Slavitt – No Skinny Minnie (2014) / solo guitar, american primitive, singer-songwriter, garage rock / Dying For Bad Music

The No Skinny Minnie ep is completely stripped down to a lonely sounding guitar in a room. Nonetheless it's a very enjoyable listen. It sounds like a meditation, but not in a boring Mark McGuire loopy-noodling style, more in Jandek style, but not as bleak and weird. Matt Sowell - Live on WFMU with Irene - May 5, 2014. Feeding Tube Records. Don Bikoff ~ Hallowed Ground (2014) / american primitive, solo guitar / Dying For Bad Music. 2012 and 2013 was the year where so called American Primitive got back in the focus of media attention.
