#TrackoftheDay: “Operation: Get the Hell Out of Here”

The Darkest of the Hillside ThicketsCanada (2007) I may have mentioned this before. My first encounter with The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets was at an early DragonCon, when I walked in on one of their concerts towards the end. What I remember most is that at the very end, someone dressed as Cthulhu came out and killed all the band members on stage. It was amazing. I’ve been a fan of their non-Euclidean music ever since. This is a selection from their 2007 album The Shadow Out of Ti...

Suhr Guitar Talk :: RE: Guitar setup - pickup height

Author: 74autodetailer Posted: Fri Oct 09, 2020 3:31 pm (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 6 Hi. I'm wondering what the difference is between... jacking the bridge up high and simply lowering the pickups, specifically on a Stratocaster. I've heard numerous times that a better 60's blues sound is achieved by jacking the bridge so its further from the pickups. Are some Strat pickups not adjustable in height? Also, on the (two-pickup model) Telecaster, I've read that rewiring it so that one of the pickups...

Compelling Case For A Trump Opera?

“We’re accustomed, after all, to think of the opera house as a place where larger-than-life conflicts play out, amid crashing orchestral textures and powerful vocal exertions. And the standard operatic repertoire offers a broad array of deep-dyed villains, among whom Trump might seem to be well at home.” – San Francisco Chronicle

John Luther Adams On What Makes His Music Tick

“Musically, I came of age in a time when there was this ongoing war between smart music and pretty music. And one of the things that I discovered was that it’s a false dichotomy. … The construction of the music, the intellectual care, the mathematical rigor, the algorithmic detail — all that is essential, even if you don’t hear it or you choose not to listen to it. … Music can be intellectually airtight and still sock you in the belly or grab you by the ears or seduce you, ravish you.” – The Na...
