Music today started with Porcupine Tree’s seventh album In Absentia (2002) and all the B-sides and demos, a selection of 32 tracks. Later after a sesh with Jed, French, and Liverpool winning 3-0 against Arsenal, it was Procol Harum’s seventh album, Exotic Birds And Fruit (1974) and yes, it’s my birthday on May 7th. In blog time I listened to Ryley Walker’s latest, Course In Fable (2021), I know him as a singer-songwriter and he did in fact do an in-store at Pet Sounds in Stockholm when I worked there and then played a show in a hotel lobby where absolutely no one listened. He was sold to us as Americana but his latest album is absolutely progressive. There is so much more to him. I love it when these singer-songwriter types take this leap – Ray LaMontagne has also done this, dabbling beyond the basic. After this latest album, Spotify continued with a second album, Deep Fried Grandeur (2021), with Walker jamming with Japanese psychedelic band Kikagaku Moyo. Two long instrumental tracks, who knew? Great if you like this kind of thing.
