    I really love his Violin Concerto 1. The recording with Kremer on violin is on Spotify.

    I will check out what anyone recommends, but I will particularly pay attention to anything Tom points out in this regard. Tom, your move.
    I will put that live album on my list of things to listen to but my favorite is the self titled from 1969.

    So I have fallen completely in love with the discography of The Field so I'm not looking for an album recommendation for them but one for a similar artist(s) that others who have enjoyed The Field have really liked.

    The first people that come to mind (and they aren't really direct similar matches but more in the same vein):

    Four Tet
    Audion / Matthew Dear
    Gold Panda
    Pantha Du Prince

    If you like The Field I'd also check out Isolee, John Talabot, John Tejada... Also, The Field releases his music on the label Kompakt and they generally stick to that sort of blissed out techno sound so it's a label worth looking into if you're digging it.

    Dunno Knut. For Tortoise, they really do switch quite a bit from album to album. If you like long songs, check out Millions Now Living Will Never Die. If you prefer shorter tracks, go with TNT. Both are great.

    For what it's worth, I originally downloaded both TNT and MNLWND and didn't really connect with the latter until I had familiarized myself with the former.

    Kompakt is my rec too, they have annual label samplers, although a lot of the later ones have a reputation for being bloated and uneven, I haven't really listened to them, but check out Total 3 and work forward or backward from there.

    I will definitely check out Kompakt, Isolee and Total 3. Thanks guys.

    Ods those are some awesome recs but I'm already quite familiar with all of those artists and I love them all. Cheers

    Clinic's first two are their best. Most people prefer the first, I slightly prefer the second.

    Spectrum - Assuming we're talking the same act, Spectrum is essentially Pete Kember A.K.A. Sonic Boom A.K.A. Experimental Audio Research. I would recommend Spectrum - Soul Kiss (Glide Divine) and Sonic Boom - Spectrum.

    They have a super expansive catalog though, so I'm sure someone more well-versed will chime in.

    Man Or Astro-Man? - Is It . . . Man Or Astro-Man?

    As for AMT, you can dive in almost anywhere and it not really matter, but they do have a lot of different shit they try out from album to album even if it ends up sounding pretty similar. Honestly, the best way to get into them is to see them live, especially since they tour the US in April every fucking year (and since you're doing Psych Fest research, you already have the opportunity, assuming you go). I guess maybe Electric Heavyland, as it fully lives up to its title. But seriously. Any album will do.

    I agree with Bryan that Walking With Thee is the place to start, though I might go forward next.

    As for Spectrum I might lean towards the 1994 compilation album What Came Before After. He has released a lot of music in a lot of formats and there's a lot of range there.

    Jazz in Silhouette is a great early album.

    The Heliocentric Worlds of Sun Ra is there too as a 3-CD thing even though the discs are unrelated albums. Disc 1 has a bunch of short pieces, some of which are very cool. I would push the listener towards Volume 2, which is what I think of as definitive Sun Ra: amazing percussive long space jams.


    His best albums (Atlantis, The Magic City, Fate In a Pleasant Mood) are not on Spotify, though.

    Lost Horizons is by far their best album IMO. All the Ducks are Swimming in the Water and Space Walk are my 2 favorite Lemon Jelly Songs, but the whole album is pretty solid. Then I would go to LemonJelly.ky and then '64-'95. They both have their moments, but there are more throwaways in them for me.

    Low. Jeff Tweedy's producing their new album, and I've never really gotten into their stuff. From what I hear about them, they seem like they'd be appropriate for the wintertime as well.
    7/30 - Shabazz Palaces - Roxy (?)
    7/31 - Hamilton Leithauser - Echo (?)
    8/01 - Ceremony/Nothing - Roxy (?)
    8/06 - Herbie Hancock - Hollywood Bowl (?)
    8/07 - Haim - Wiltern (?)
