New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with The Brian Jonestown Massacre

The Brian Jonestown Massacre What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

Been recording a lot of flutes in the studio lately? Well Anton Newcombe of The Brian Jonestown Massacre has just the right record for you: The Best of Herbie Mann. "When I'm in the studio, producing people, recording people, and I say, 'I would like you to be very free on this part,' this is a good example," says Newcombe of the LP. "He's just soloing, endlessly, in a very, like, hippie way." Newcombe's wry exuberance and seeming irreverence were on full display on his recent trip to Amoeba San Francisco, where he was looking for records to listen to around his studio in Berlin. Needless to say, his visit made for an entertaining "What's In My Bag?" episode.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre Third World PyramidThe Brian Jonestown Massacre was founded in San Francisco by American multi-instrumentalist Newcombe, and although their early sound was rooted in shoegaze, the band quickly became known for their hybrid of psych and garage rock. Their first release was 1993's limited run LP Spacegirl and Other Favorites; its follow-up, Methodrone, received a wider release courtesy of Bomp! Records. In 1996, the Brian Jonestown Massacre released a slew of well-received albums, including Their Satanic Majesties' Second Request, Take It from the Man!, and Thank God for Mental Illness. A year later the band put out a sixth studio LP, Give It Back!Footage from the album's recording sessions was included in the 2004 documentary Dig!.

Andrew Bird What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

"I always make a B-line for the Y section in the Jazz department," explains singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird. "It's a ritual for me to get started when I go record shopping; just go find Lester Young." On his recent visit to Amoeba Hollywood, Bird expressed his love of the tenor saxophonist's recordings. Having found an album Young recorded with Teddy Wilson, Pres and Teddy, he explains his preference for his smaller group albums. "The small group stuff is incredibly inventive and lyrical."

Andrew Bird Are You Serious Amoeba MusicBest known for his solo work, Andrew Bird first came to prominence through his work with Squirrel Nut Zippers before founding Andrew Bird's Bowl of Fire. After Bowl of Fire disbanded in 2003, Bird's solo career began to take off with the release of Weather Systems and Andrew Bird & the Mysterious Production of Eggs on Ani Difranco's Righteous Babe Records. These records marked an evolution in Bird's sound, as he began incorporating glockenspiel and whistling into his eclectic indie rock compositions.
