Chris Hillman, whose credits include co-founding Rock and Roll Hall of Famers the Byrds, as well as the Flying Burrito Brothers, Manassas and Desert Rose Band, is truly one of the architects of American music. His newest solo work, Bidin' My Time, produced by Tom Petty and executive-produced by Herb Pedersen, captures a rarity: an icon who has never sounded better, making music with old friends for the sheer love of it. Collaborators and admirers from Hillman's storied career appear throughout the record: Tom Petty; Hillman's Byrds bandmates David Crosby and Roger McGuinn; the Heartbreakers' Benmont Tench, Mike Campbell, and Steve Ferrone; Desert Rose Band's John Jorgenson, Pedersen, and Jay Dee Maness; premier upright bassist Mark Fain; singer/guitarist Josh Jové; and fiddler Gabe Witcher.
Beyond Time Structure, the new album from the Polish artist Vanderson consists seven energetic songs between 6 and 13 minutes. Every song has all the time it needs to evolve to a very special and harmonic piece of Electronic Music. Gorgeous melodies, deep sound and an extremely well balance between melodic and hypnotic elements, make this album so wonderful. Vanderson is well known for harmonic tunes and his own style playing with simple but intelligent sequences. On Beyond Time Structure he adds an additional portion of rhythmic elements so this album became different from his so far known work. Some influences by modern electronic dance music are intended. Also the sound design is more modern without losing the spirit of his past releases.
