Dan Susnara "Vent Grin and Conquer," Dan Susnara & Micky Saunders "Riding the Moonbeams Analog Slim in Luddite Land"
(7806 S. Kilpatrick Chicago IL 60652) "Vent" is Susnara's darkest, weirdest, closest to psychedelia recording yet. It would be depressing if it wasn't so inspiring how much better he keeps getting. His latest colabo with young protege Saunders is a much lighter affair, as acoustic instrumental explorations and Saunders' youth and energy seem to make this CD float around like a balloon. Note: the luddite-ness may be why this wouldn't play in my computer, just on a 25 year old CD player.
