"My blood is clean, but the devil is in me"

Although we inevitably keep on thinking about music in traditional categories and genre-distinctions, nothing is as fascinating as witnessing young musicians doing away with this, not for the fun of 'everything goes', but because the 'old forms' have lost their urgency; because their creativity asks for a new language. Of course, this is the way 'free jazz' musicians have understood themselves from the sixties on, but even 'free jazz' has become a niche, a respectable institution with its canon, instruments and techniques.
One of these youngs guys deserving our attention here is definitely Chris Corsano. Mostly known for his collaborations with saxofonist Paul Flaherty, he takes 'free jazz' beyond the jazz-idiom, bringing some hardcore-punk energy within a jazz-setting or adding some noise-folk-psych influences together with people as Thurston Moore, Matt Valentine, Jandek... Below you find a song from his album 'The Radiant Mirror' (out on Textile Records), a performance together with Mike Flower, who plays here the shahi baaja (a japanese electric dulcimer/auto-harp).
I also added a song from a great psych album I recently discovered: Blood is clean from Valet (out on Kranky). Valet is the solo-project of Honey Owens (who has previously played with Jackie-O Motherfucker). Haunting impressionistic guitar-playing with beautiful, etheral vocals.

Some of the sports that are being bet online are horse racing, greyhound racing, and football.Online betting works the same with all the betting websites on the net. These businesses have grown for years. You can play with it by using a single account. Some of these websites also offer gambling online, you are just like playing at the casino and you can bet using the same account.

What are you missing out on? Many people enjoy betting on sports but not everyone can compete at a high level. It all adds up to taking risks and how much you are willing to give in order to gain. Today, the stakes are not as high as they used to be, but that action has evolved into a multi-billion dollar industry. You can wager with money and when you win, you still get that tremendous rush. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/
