Hecker is back with a new LP. Tim put out couple of ambient and piano-based projects about five years ago that earned him a new audience. Now he's going with more layered electronics and taking a sonically complex approach. Very deep.

The lead-off track from the latest by Brazilian singer Céu. This record is a step forward for her, and it's as solid as a brick. My favorite Brazilian guitarist, Pedro Sa, is all over it too!

Singer Maki Asakawa had a unique take on jazz that combined Japanese lyrics and musical traditions with French and American pop sounds. She died in 2010, leaving behind stacks of moody, smoky songs. Honest Jon's just compiled her best work, check it out.

A track from the latest Norman Westberg LP, "13." The long-player is all minimal drone work like this, really engaging and beautiful stuff. I love the way the guitar is barely present as an instrument. It just sorta peeks in every once in a while. The accompanying video is by Paul W. Rankin.

Aaron Freeman, aka Gene Ween, has a birthday today. Happy birthday, Gener. Here's the brothers Ween doing a Prince cover. The solo at the end eviscerates everyone in the room. This was recorded 22 years ago at Slim's in beautiful San Francisco. The person recording it was probably leaning against that stupid jackass wooden pole sticking up in the middle of the stage.
