Bill Bruford Bill Bruford grew up with jazz. As an amateur drummer in the 1960s, and after a handful of lessons from Lou Pocock of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, he began his professional career in 1968. He was a guiding light in the so-called British "Art Rock" movement, touring internationally with Yes and King Crimson from 1968-74. There then followed several years spent observing and participating in the music making processes of, among others, Gong, National Health, Genesis and U.K., until Bill felt ready to write and perform his own music with his own band Bruford, recording four albums from 1977-80.
GOTYE LYRICS - Somebody That I Used To Know [Gotye:] Now and then I think of when we were together Like when you said you felt so happy you could die Told myself that you were right for me But felt so lonely in your company But that was love and it's an ache I still remember You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness Like resignation to the end, always the end So when we found that we could not make sense Well you said that we would still be friends But I'll admit that I was glad it was over But you didn't have to cut me off Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing And I don't even need your love But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough No you didn't have to stoop so low Have your friends collect your records and then change your number I guess that I don't need that though Now you're just somebody that I used to know Now you're just somebody that I used to know Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Psychoactive Soundscapes - 20 Mind-Bending Psychedelic Albums of 2012 - REDEFINE magazine Well, it’s now past the supposedly prophesized Mayan apocalypse, and of course no obvious signs of eschatological judgment have been wrought down upon us, which was much to be expected. There is something else we need to address though, before we can just write this shit off for good. If you were paying any attention to what those of the neo-spiritualist ilk were saying for the last decade or so, the conversation always involved a shift in consciousness rather than a rogue asteroid raining fiery death from above. Nobody said it’d be instantaneous. Prophecies regarding a sudden massive shift in the perceptual limitations of our species always struck me as being beyond improbable. Whereas I’d be the first to admit that more of us these days are getting turned on to the higher cosmic functionalities of our brains, I’d also point out that it’s probably little more than a numbers game.

Courtesy of the artist hide caption toggle caption Courtesy of the artist Steve Martin and Edie Brickell's first album together, Love Has Come for You, comes out April 23. Karin Dreijer Andersson Karin Elisabeth Dreijer Andersson (born 7 April 1975), also known by her stage name Fever Ray, is the lead vocalist of the electronic music duo The Knife, formed with her brother Olof Dreijer. Andersson was previously the vocalist and guitarist of the alternative rock band Honey Is Cool. Andersson released her debut solo album under the name Fever Ray in 2009. Her vocal style is notable for both shrill and deep tones, and also the use of multitracked vocals, with different uses of pitch-shifting technology on each track, creating an intricate and mysterious effect.
Fever Ray (album) Pitchfork Media's argued that, in contrast to The Knife's "plasticky percussions and goofy synth sounds", Fever Ray "brims with fragile, more finely articulated sounds" and "moves at roughly the same pace and with the same general tone, rendering some of the songs indistinguishable at first, but committed listens will reveal this to be as nuanced and as rich of a production as anything either Dreijer has done." The A.V. Club's Chris Martins viewed it as being "countless times more claustrophobic and creepy than Silent Shout" and stated that "[t]he vocal transformer is such a huge part of what Andersson does—androgynizing her words to accompany the cold music, mimicking the synth warbles and sustained tones that abound. All lyrics written by Fever Ray, except where noted.

This Album was Recorded under the Influence of Sahlep: Aphrodite's Child's 666 Aphrodite's Child were a Greek progressive rock band formed by the iconic film composer Vangelis in 1967, featuring Demis Roussos on bass and vocals, Loukas Sideras on drums and vocals, and Anargyros Koulouris on guitar. In 1972, they released 666 (The Apocalypse of John, 13/18), a sprawling, magnificent, and occasionally bonkers double concept album based on every rocker/stoner/teenage boy's favorite section of the Bible. Here's a taster: The album was a hard-sell to the record label suits from the get-go.
