In contrast to his self-titled 1969 album, which consisted of full orchestral interpretations of Moondog works (and which included relatively little in the way of performance by Moondog himself), this 1971 album was devoted to minimally arranged madrigals, rounds, and canons. Only acoustic instruments were used; the harpsichord was the most prominent, but there were also recorder, celeste, piano, and guitar. Moondog and his daughter June achieved choral effects through overdubbing, and repetitive, shaking percussion formed the rhythmic basis. The uplifting melodies, as well as the light-of-heart, whimsical execution, give this an innocuous but not sappy feel, yet there's still enough eccentricity to attract the experimental crowd. It does get a bit maddening over the course of 26 rounds. The album is now available on the CD reissue of the 1969 Moondog LP, which adds Moondog 2 in its entirety and manages to fit both works onto a single disc.

Moondog and his daughter June achieved choral effects through overdubbing, and repetitive, shaking percussion formed the rhythmic basis. The uplifting melodies, as well as the light-of-heart, whimsical execution, give this an innocuous but not sappy feel, yet there's still enough eccentricity to attract the experimental crowd. It does get a bit maddening over the course of 26 rounds. The album is now available on the CD reissue of the 1969 Moondog LP, which adds Moondog 2 in its entirety and manages to fit both works onto a single disc.

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

Jack White, The Saviour of Rock

From the White Stripes to his time in the solo wilderness, Jack White has been foretelling the doom of a clapped-out rock'n'roll. The genius with a thousand projects has a new prophecy: rock is coming back. While we await its return, here's a look back at the White phenomenon.
