New column by Dominique Leone @ Pitchfork

Thursday, March 15th, 2007

Somehow I missed it when it first went up, but Dominique’s latest Out Music column at Pitchfork was posted a couple days ago. To my delight, he reviews Zs‘ new album and some other good stuff like the reissue of Soft Machine’s Third. I wish it were a longer article, but hey, how often do you see a link to NEARfest at Pitchfork?

Dominique Leone is still writing

Wednesday, February 14th, 2007

If you, like me, have been wondering about Dominique Leone’s recent low profile over at Pitchfork, have no fear! He has a new monthly column, “Out Music,” the second edition of which was published yesterday. There’s good stuff in there, including reviews of reissues of News From Babel, Koenjihyakkei, and Faust, plus a gratuitous Art Bears reference thrown in for good measure. And if you missed last month’s column, check it out, too, as therein lies even more interesting weird-music coverage (and Dominique’s entertaining ramblings).

In other news, it looks like Masada is finally calling it a day, which is probably for the best as it might allow Zorn to focus on his other projects. Hopefully it will also mean his $500,000 Macarthur grant won’t go to issuing the 500th through 600th Masada live recordings. (I mean, I really like this band, but in terms of documentation, only King Crimson overdoes it more.)

Dude, Dominique just wrote a fairly glowing review of an Emperor album over at Pitchfork. Awesome!
