Excited About New Music

I can't recall the last time there was so much new music on my "to listen" list. Most of it is new-new but at least one is old but new to me. Some I've already started listening to while some still waits in my wish list. Here they are, in no particular order.
  1. leviathan. by Michael Bernier - Stick Men alum builds an album around his chapman stick playing with contributions from Pat Mastelotto and others. Details on bandcamp.
  2. Deep by Stick Men - It's the latest from Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto, and Markus Reuter. Details on Pledge Music.
  3. Genesis Revisited II by Steve Hackett - Can't wait to hear what he's done with Chamber of 32 Doors. Details on Hackett Songs.
  4. Ouroboros by Naked Truth - The streaming preview from All About Jazz Italia is amazing. Think Miles Davis crossed with King Crimson.
  5. Celebration Day by Led Zeppelin - This 2-CD live recording of their reunion benefit show for the founder of Atlantic Records in 2007 promises to be a "tour de force." See the video trailer on YouTube.
  6. Lux by Brian Eno - 'nuff said. Details on his site.
  7. Bandits of Stature by Harold Budd - The master of minimalist keyboards now brings us string quartets. Details from Darla Records.
  8. Sublunar by Kane Ikin - Ambience with grit. Read this review on
Hope to be sharing my thoughts on each very soon.
