Alastair Galbraith


New Zealand's Alastair Galbraith is, to my mind, a singular musical voice that everyone should know - sadly few do. The first album I heard by him was mirrorwork. It changed the way I thought about the concept of "song" in ways that I can't really express. It is now available along with some of his other works at Bandcamp.

To my taste, the 2008 album Orb is, next to mirrorwork, the stand out from the four available on bandcamp.



But you really can't go wrong with anything that Galbraith has been involved with. If you can track it down his work with Plagal Grind is particularly nice.



Being immersed in Galbraith's works was a huge player in my being able to contribute in a small way to the Dustdevil & Crow records, which are really some of the work I am most proud of. Bendle's work is tilted on a different axis than Galbraith's, but they share some strange orthogonal relationship to each other and the rest of the musical world.

Yobs in the Snicket

 More from Choke's sonic foundation, Grant. Yobs in the Snicket...enjoy.

Aggressive By Nature


Our old friend Grant, from Choke, is back on the bass in a new band, Aggressive By Nature, playing around Albuquerque. Straight-ahead hard rock, but worth a listen. Check 'em out if you are in the Duke City. I'll pass along any recordings as they become available. Here's a video.

Dynamo Stairs - Art Direct



Dynamo Stairs has a new one out. Get it (name your price) on bandcamp. This one is a particularly nostalgic take on pop tropes from the last 30 years or so.
Dave is, of course, the main singer/song-writer from Choke.
