Planet of the “Apes”

Apes_cover

As any regular listener to NPR can tell you, musician, writer, radio personality, anthologist and social observer David Greenberger is good company. Lately, I’ve been keeping company with his new CD, “1001 Real Apes,” a recording of a piece that Greenberger and Boston’s Birdsongs of the Mesozoic played in Erie in 1998.

My review of the CD will be running soon in the Erie Times’s ShowCase entertainment tab, and I don’t want to tip my hand (hint, it’ll be laudatory), but you should hear this. “How Records Are Made,” a selection from the CD is available here.

See it, too: the cover art, by the way, was assembled from rocks found at local artist Brian Pardini’s beach cottage in Lake City.

The Two Lindseys

Nate Chinen from the New York Times (and also the Village Voice — now there’s a double) offers this review of Lindsey Horner’s new CD, “Don’t Count on Glory.”

My wife and I had dinner with Lindsey and his beloved Andrea, whom he met while he was in my home town with Bobby Previte’s Weather Clear, Track Fast band, and he gave me a copy of “Don’t Count on Glory.”

I will be reviewing it for the next issue of Signal to Noise, and while I’m not done with that review yet, I think Chinen pretty much nails it. Good record. Good review.

By the way, the teaser blurb on the Times’s Arts web page this morning reads, “New releases from Lindsay Lohan, Don Omar, Korn and Lindsey Horner.” How much fun is that?
