My friend Jagger recently turned me onto this band called The Aristocrats. He’s a serious muso (which is like the musical equivalent of “foodie”), and this band features some extremely developed playing from extremely advanced musicians. They’re like a fine delicacy, that the average mortal tongue can’t fully appreciate. Guthrie Govan, the guitarist, is apparently quite a big deal in the guitar world (as well as “Guitar World”), and you’ll hear why. The Aristocrats have a sound that straddles many different genres, from progressive hard rock to jazz, all of it played with jaw-dropping technical mastery.
Appropriately enough for today, this song is called “See You Next Tuesday”.
