Trout Steel by Mike Cooper

This is considered the beginning of Mike Coopers descent into experimental music. On first listen it might seem like a normal record to the untrained ear. Rest assured, this is a one-of-a-kind merge of elements into a unique brand of folksy blues rock, or bluesy folk rock. The music is all improvised. The lyrics are amazing. Such good songs. The title track is almost too good. It won’t leave your head for days.

ConStates iii – VA

This is a cool drone compilation, with a lot of folk themes. It ends with a Natural Snow Buildings Song, Yggdrasil. It has Asva on it. Doing a drone. These are all emotional works that draw on organic elements to produce the dense sense of feeling within each track. The artists on it are all very talented and feeling musicians, very capable of conveying their thought processes through sound.
