Crucial Listening #6: David Grubbs

PHOTO BY JOHN FOSTER

Post-punk hurled at a wall, intellectual slapstick, the loops of life. The Brooklyn-based composer and author discusses three important albums.

David’s picks:

1) Circle X – EP
2) Tony Conrad – Ten Years Alive On The Infinite Plain
3) Luc Ferrari – Presque Rien No. 1 ‘Le Lever du jour au bord de la mer’

You can find David over at Drag City and on Bandcamp.

Oh – and as promised, here’s a picture of David Grubbs and others sporting Tony Conrad’s wonderful jackets. L-R: MV Carbon, C. Spencer Yeh, Mary Jordan, Paige Sarlin, David Grubbs, Jennifer Walshe, Arnold Dreyblatt.
