Robert Wyatt, Shleep
2009 | Label: Domino Recording Co

What does it speak of Wyatt's paternal stature in the UK prog/ art-rock scene to have Brian Eno in his employ only as a backup singer on "Heaps of Sheep"? Or for asking free music master Evan Parker to honk a dizzying soprano sax solo on the already off-kilter "The Duchess"? Throughout his sixth solo album, Shleep, Wyatt has guitarists from Roxy Music and the Jam at his disposal, each and every gent gratefully repaying… read more »

Who Is…Serafina Steer

By Victoria Segal, Contributor

"Seeing the word 'kooky' in relation to my stuff is sickening," shudders Serafina Steer, all too aware of the pre- and misconceptions that come swarming the minute a harp enters the picture.

It communicates at least as much as her songs themselves, and in fact presenting lyrics is pretty far from the point: unless… more »

Chris McGregor: Cape Town to Free Town

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

It wasn't easy, being the interracial Blue Notes in 1963 apartheid South Africa: a black horns-and-rhythm combo with a white pianist/music director, Chris McGregor. They skipped out of Cape Town the following year: went to a French festival and didn't return. In London by '65, the quintet's members were welcomed by forward-looking jazz musicians: Steve Lacy drafted bassist Johnny Dyani and drummer Louis Moholo for the album The Forest and the Zoo, and an ill-fated… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Robert Wyatt continues to follow his singular musical path with the lovely Shleep, delivering another album of considerable quirky charm and understated beauty; a less melancholy affair than much of his recent work, the record is informed by a hazy, dreamlike quality perfectly in keeping with the elements of subconsciousness implicit in the title. – Jason Ankeny
