Halloween has come to an end, but with its ending comes the beginning of the Holiday Season. That’s right folks, Thanksgiving is on the way next. As we watch the final leaves hit the ground and plan our Turkey Day dinners, it’s hard not to think about that inevitable first snow flake.

However, with the changing of the Seasons also comes a new set of What’s On picks – so give thanks, stay warm and crank up those headphones!

 

 

November 2014 Album Picks

 

Nostalgia For The Unreal by Zebulon Pike

“Zebulon Pike is a self-described “instrumental prog-doom metal band”, which is such a good description that it cannot be better refined. The brainchild Happy Apple bandmates Erik Fratzke (guitar) and Dave King (drums, also of The Bad Plus), Zebulon Pike takes a jazz approach to writing heavy, progressive compositions that lack vocals and boundaries.”

Offering: Live At Temple University by John Coltrane

“Weird. Very weird. Very experimental. I understand why some people walked out, and some people remembered this show the rest of their lives.”

lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar by Robert Plant

“It was certainly interesting to hear Robert Plant in an entirely different context from Led Zeppelin, which I really hadn’t prior to now. Of course, this album was in a very different vein, as expected.”
