Back to some Country, from Ross Coppley. Here's a couple of lines from his (very interesting) Soundcloud bio: "Coppley describes his music as 'not completely country, but not completely rock.'" Yeah but what we've heard is really good.
When Aspen Santa Fe Ballet goes on tour (they're in Tucson tonight and Los Angeles on Saturday before heading to Canada via East Lansing, Michigan), they bring a lot of of what makes concert Dance so worth seeing with them. Gifted dancers, great choreography and a very unique understanding of the art of dance. One of the things that's special about them is the number of original works they commission from the world's leading choreographers; their performance in L.A. will include Alejandro Cerrudo's Last (shown in this video excerpt), and they've recently announced that Cerrudo is returning this year with another world premiere.
We were listening to tracks by German artist PAJI, because the description on his Twitter was so interesting. It says, "PAJI is a musician and producer who creates electronic music in combination with live played instruments, particulary the violin." Lots of cool tracks, but when we found a collaboration with Tube & Berger, it was just too hard to resist starting with this track called "Reliquia" ...
Here's another one from the new Phone Calls release, a six song EP called Let's Jam. These are melodic, well-produced guitar band instrumentals, and there's word on the street of a live show soon, probably in Chicago. This is one our current favorites, it's called Lucky Dave.
