    1978 / 2021 Sundazed Records

    This one is the polar opposite of her recently re-issued 1979 album, The Perfect Release. X-Dreams is an earthy, bluesy, sexy record. Features Mick Ronson, Chris Spedding, Bill Bruford, Ray Warleigh, etc. It rocks too!

    Nonesuch note:

    Mandolinist, singer, and songwriter Chris Thile’s Laysongs is his first truly solo album: just Thile, his voice, and his mandolin, on new recordings of six original songs and three covers, all of which contextualize and banter with his ideas about spirituality.

    Recorded in a converted upstate New York church during the pandemic, Laysongs’ centerpiece is the three-part “Salt (in the Wounds) of the Earth,” which was inspired by C.S. Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters. The album also features a song Thile wrote about Dionysus; a performance of the fourth movement of Béla Bartók’s Sonata for Solo Violin; “God Is Alive, Magic Is Afoot” based on Buffy Sainte-Marie’s adaptation of a Leonard Cohen poem; a cover of bluegrass legend Hazel Dickens’ “Won’t You Come and Sing for Me;” and an original instrumental loosely modeled after the Prelude from J.S. Bach’s Partita for Solo Violin in E Major.

    Fantastic career-spanning box set by Cassiber, a band co-founded by Chris Cutler, former core member of Henry Cow and Art Bears. The music contained herein is as wild and experimental as anything Cutler's former bands ever produced; more akin to contemporary art music than rock. Fans of adventurous and uncompromising music will surely love this set as much as I do.

    Have you heard this yet SA? I listened to it yesterday. Curious. I love Chris Thile and saw Punch Brothers a couple of times. I liked it but I think I’ll need to listen to it again. Lots going on and it’s not an immediate album. Mind you I could say that about a few of his releases.

    I listened to the three tracks of "Salt" - you're right, I plan on revisiting the album. As is often the case with Thile, there is much to take in. I get emails from the roots magazine No Depression, and this was one of the more interesting new releases.
