New Harmony Rockets

Post by mc » Wed Oct 03, 2018 10:15 pm

I think there's a few Harmony Rockets fans here, so I thought I'd mention their new album, called Lachesis/Clotho/Atropos, a collaboration with Peter Walker (whoever he might be) and released a few weeks ago. It's utterly fantastic: widescreen starry-eyed improv with gorgeous folk, jazz and raga elements. Highly recommended to all :)

Longtime Woodstock resident, guitarist Peter Walker recorded two albums for the Vanguard label in the late Sixties in a style best described as American folk-raga. He studied with Ravi Shankar and Ali Akbar Khan, and was Dr. Timothy Leary's musical director, organizing music for the LSD advocate's "celebrations." He was also a close friend of fellow Woodstock resident, the late folksinger Karen Dalton, and helped produce Remembering Mountains : Unheard Songs by Karen Dalton (Tompkins Square), which features unrecorded Dalton compositions brought to life by Sharon Van Etten, Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams and others.
