Nels Cline follows two distinct tracks in his guitar playing, alternating the avant-jazz arc he explores solo along with the psychedelic-punk-freakout textures he brings to Wilco. Here are the five riffs that changed his life, and inspired his own fearless fretting.

Perchè “Tor & Vale” di Mark Wingfield e Gary Husband (MoonJune Records 2019) viene etichettata come “progressive”? su #neuguitars #blog

https://markwingfield-moonjune.bandcamp.com/album/tor-vale-hd Ammetto di non essere un amante delle generalizzazioni musicali, dei generi e delle etichette facili.

Complexity and depth in Joe Morris’s music, Macrocom and Ultra on #neuguitars #blog

Joe Morris’s photo @ Scott Friedlander https://joemorrisritiglacialeratic.bandcamp.com/album/macrocosm https://sluchaj.bandcamp.com/album/joe-morris-ultra Susan Sontag represents an almost enigmatic figure for me. Essayist, writer, director, political activist, the Sontag represents an inexhaustible source of contrasting ideas and points of view on today’s world.

Complessità e profondità nella musica di Joe Morris https://joemorrisritiglacialeratic.bandcamp.com/album/macrocosm https://sluchaj.bandcamp.com/album/joe-morris-ultra Susan Sontag rappresenta una figura per me quasi enigmatica. Saggista, scrittrice, regista, attivista politica, la Sontag rappresenta una sorgente inesauribile di idee e punti vista contrastanti sul mondo odierno. Le sue idee hanno il pregio di mantenersi interessanti e attuali anche se la Sontag è…
