A native of the Piedmont area of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, Cooper-Moore began studying piano at age eight. Four years later, he was listening to the musics of Thelonius Monk, Charles Mingus, Ornette Coleman, and working on improvisation.

Revolution Void Revolution Void combines electronic music with live improvisation, resulting in a style of music described variously as nu-jazz, electro-jazz or electronic breakbeat jazz. Revolution Void is the moniker of 23-year-old producer and jazz pianist Jonah Dempcy. Revolution Void recordings also feature a number of guest musicians including Seamus Blake (Mingus Big Band), Matthew Garrison (Herbie Hancock) and Lucas Pickford (Brian Blade). Taking cues from electro-acoustic pioneers DJ Shadow, Medeski Martin & Wood and DJ Cam, Revolution Void presents the listener with a unique combination of electronic music and modern jazz. The sound of Revolution Void has progressed over the years. In 2000, Jonah began working with Michael Shrieve (Santana) as an engineer and producer. Jonah also began collaborating with drummer/producer Dave Hill, Jr. and James "Roto" Rotondi at this time (the duo make up NYC electro-acoustic outfit Jettatura). From 1996-2001, Revolution Void performed live over 100 times.

Los Sundayers Any Sunday, in a typical Spanish sunny beach, with the most luscious paella recently eaten, ten unruly Sundayers (weekend tripper) suffer an incredible transformation that make them mix, with a huge foodie knowledge, a musical explosion where everything is possible to make dance and have fun without limits.

Reggae, rock, jazz, ska, funk, latin, creative and japanese cuisines are the music styles that is usually playing in the Sundayers’ iPods while they are waiting for the bus, they are cooking anything delicious or are dancing in any unexpected place. The never ending party that is the Sundayers on their live shows, where every stage becomes a funny and dancing machine. source: official website

Red Hook Ramblers That sound of Houston's shadow music collective Ak'chamel that has been hovering over Houston has congealed again in a release known as "Pus Ch'en" under net-labels suRRism-Phonoethics & Have You Said Midi?. Like their earlier albums Old Norse Mara & The Divine Vine Tapes, they continue to evoke tribal rituals from abstract hinterland cultures with haunted throat-singing, guitars, percussion, drones, & more-only this time with a heavier (if possible) & more refined sound. The title of track 2-"Underworld Sweat Bath" is a pretty accurate description of the Ak'chamel sonic experience. The occaisional brightness of a chime might punctuate the music now & then but it's perfectly contextualized to simply add detail before the sounds give way to gutteral chant. More Ak'chamel on the FMA, Facebook, & Bandcamp Arrington de Dionyso is interested in blurring the lines between sacred ritual and popular entertainment. Many of your releases directly relate to where you were when you recorded them.

James Beaudreau I'm a guitarist, musician & recordist based in NYC. The first album I was on was The Billy Nayer Show's 1998 CD The Villian That Love Built, then I recorded two more with them (Return To Brigadoon and Goodbye Straplight Sarentino, I Will Miss You) and the soundtrack to the movie The American Astronaut. We toured in the US a bit too. I released my solo guitar album Java St. Bagatelles on Workbench in 2006, then the multi-instrumental Fresh Twigs in 2008. James Beaudreau - Pacifico I've been waking up with songs in my head. It's not immediate -- I get a few moments of quiet -- but when I get to the kitchen and start the coffee they pop up like dolphins. This morning it was "Pump It Up" by Elvis Costello -- no surprise there, since that's what I was listening to last night. I don't mind it too much. I discovered the beneficial phenomenon last year. That's what happened with this tune, "Pacifico". "Pacifico" is a classical-ish piece like last week's "Stellar Rushes". Pacifico was my grandfather on my mother's side. He passed away when I was four, but I remember him, and I learned more as I got older.

Jahzzar - Siesta Traveller's Guide is a user guide. 14 songs that try to summarize pop sounds and rhythms that have accompanied us in the past 20 years. Not everyone, of course; this guide focuses on those most direct and fresh, as it can not be otherwise, which have helped shape the character and personality of It is a vindication of the 90's that doesn't ignore new trends, the result of someone who smells like teen spirit and doen't think the past was necessarily better. From Jarvis Cocker to Destroyer. From Blur and Oasis to Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, Arctic Monkeys and Deerhunter. Kurt Vile - Nicotine Blues Philly's "Constant Hitmaker" Kurt Vile brought a couple guitars, a banjo, a delay pedal, and a trusted microphone to the WFMU studios earlier this month. He played a few new tunes and a few from Constant Hitmaker (Gulcher), which has been one of my favorite albums of the year. I'm not alone -- Mike Lupica picked these "immediately appealing bedroom recordings" in Dusted's Mid-Year Roundup, citing their "fuzzed out melancholia that somehow invokes the spirit of Lee Hazlewood at his best." This stripped-down solo set -- without the multitracked synth, drum machine, and heady loops -- highlighted the darker aspects of Vile's songwriting, with some Songs-of-Leonard-Cohen-y chills. -Jason Sigal
