That's really nice (+ reinforces my wish for a baritone :ph34r: )
Mattson 2 have some awesome guitar sounds like this goin’ on !

Not entirely Satie-like, but cool
I love the mattson 2 but their newer stuff doesn't do much for me, I'm not into their psychedelic guitar sound. I still buy it and listen to it, but not as much as Ray Barbee Meets... or the first EP or Feeling Hands. He needs to drop the Strat and go back to his Jaguar and 335.

^ yeah, I can't really fall in love with the vocals and the current songwriting style....
good on 'em for doing whatever they feel like and avoiding re-hashing, but it's a drag that I can't get psyched to buy the newer stuff.
those old releases are amazing. did you see the live vid I took of them a few years back ? they were great live. nice fellas to boot

Yeah, I can’t count the number of times I saw them live when I lived in San Diego. They were always super nice, too.

A bit of sychronicity going on here

My Satie cd has reached the top of the listening pile again and is in my car CD player right now.

Am a fan of the Mattson2.

Thanks for posting the links

Andy Summers has a 1989 solo record called Mysterious Barricades. The album was dedicated to Satie, and the music was very Satie-esque. In addition to his work with The Police, et al, Andy has a (masters?) degree in classical guitar

Completely off topic, but I'd not heard of this mob before, and I just found out they have an EP that's a condensed version of A Love Supreme, so that's my afternoon listening sorted.

Cheers.

I really dig this Love Supreme rendition. Grabbed it on vinyl. It’s a fun listen

You might like their Agar album, too. Or Chaz Bundick meets the Mattson 2's Star Stuff, but then you start getting into vocals.

Yeah. Agar is great. Wouldn’t go so far as to say I dislike the most recent stuff. His vocals are cool to my ears when I’m in The mood. Overall good on em for mixing it up, as they coils easily keep writing similar tunes.

Bill Frisell's Disfarmer album

Japan's Width of a Room/Experience of Swing were Satiesque (no guitars though)

A few versions of Satie you may not know

I can live without the Gary Numan one though...

The Jacques Loussier version is interesting.

Will be investigating this.
