Wow? Has it really been two weeks since an entry? Time flies. I can't believe it's already July.
We'll kick of the renewed blogging with something short and easy:
As a late father's day present, Sarah bought me The Mix Up -- the new instrumental CD from the Beastie Boys. I have always liked the Beasties playing instruments and this album of all new music delivers. It's jazzy, funky, and groovy in alternating amounts. There are unique keyboard sounds on many tracks and some unique noises (a whistle, for example) thrown in (not sure if there are samples or loops in there as well). Some songs remind me of a simpler Medeski, Martin, and Wood and the whole album has a nice, urban, NYC vibe.
Good stuff! Thanks Sarah and Eleanor.
