Oax Pick - Tony Williams Lifetime

Emergency! - 2 LP (1969)

(turn it over) - LP (1970)

This is SO powerful. The perfect power trio of Tony Williams on furious drumming and whispering vocals, John McLaughlin on demon guitar and Larry Young on wild organ (love his science fictional chords like from outer space), including the bass pedals. On (turn it over) mighty Jack Bruce is added on bass.
The music is expressive in more than one way and often finds it climax when all of them 3/4 climbs the peak of madness. Pure music! Gee fer it!

Free Albums Galore said...

Joxfield ProjeX is one of the most consistently rewarding avant-garde/experimental music groups that I have featured on Free Albums Galore. The project is actually a duo by two musicians simply named Oax , who plays most of the guitars, and Yan who takes care of the keyboards. Both of them also contributes electronic effects and various other instruments to the mix . There are a few albums by them released on Clinical Archive. Yet Numbers and Letters is by far their best and most realized effort. It is also my pick for best online avant-garde/experimental music release for 2010.

One of the things that makes this album stand out is the addition of guest artists which seems to bring the best out of Joxfield ProjeX. There are just too many guests to mention but you can find them listed on the download page. However, two that tend to stand out for me are saxophonist Geoff Leigh and sitarist Håkan Almkvist. The album is over 2 hours long and is the equivalent of 3 CDs. Disc A is titled Abstract Numbers and it is a bit more introverted than the other two offerings. It is also my favorite precisely due to the quieter and serious structure that pervades through the tracks. Disc B & C are titled Concrete Letters: A-M and Concrete Letters: N-Z. They have an harder edge but still are entertainingly complex efforts. They may be a bit more challenging for the avant-garde music novice.

Those who enjoy more experimental forms of music will appreciate Numbers and Letters but the music is not so “out there” that more conventional music lovers will not enjoy it too. So download it and give it a listen.

Of course we thank them a lot for picking Numbers & Letters as the best online avant-garde/experimental music release for 2010. We're deeply honored.

21st Century Psychedelic Music

Now it's 2011.
Tired of being haunted by all that old stuff we're now heading for some new challenges, 21st Century Psychedelic Music.
The chrystal ball says the future will bring you a couple of volumes of disordered, noisy and squeaky music, just wait and see.
And, if you're lucky, maybe Yan will construct a Pop version of it all as well.
If you're eager enough you can check the myspace player for some teasers.
Hurry, it will not be there forever!
