me:

Isis-Panopticon
Ed Rush/Optical-Out of the Box
Sadies-favorite coulours
Unclassics-Morgan Geist

Maybe you bought it or maybe it came through a promo stack.
BTW I really want to hear that african psychedelic comp.
and yes I realise we all hear too much everyday.

down to it- I need to hear some good stuff. Cheers.

Michael Mayer - "Touch" a couple of times through. It's nice but not as incredible as I hoped it'd be. A bit too trancey and linear for my liking.

Basteroid - the first Areal EP. This is great. Shades of early dj Rush but with added emotional pianos and clicky electro beats laid over 4/4 kicks. Really fresh.

Ada - "Lovelace"

Tinchy Strider over "Screwface" riddim - monstrous monstrous track. Huge pummelling bass from five different directions at once, like being beaten over the head with low frequencies. I've heard him do that chat before, over the dj mondie track, but this pisses all over it.

ada is SO good. really, really loving that neo-kompkat-esque romantic, macro, techno + house that breaks yr heart, at the moment.

yesterday i listened to;
-arve henriksen's new one [good, but not as good as the boomkat review made it out to be]
-the knife, 'heart beats [rex the dog mix], over and over, which i downloaded from stypod and might be the greatest, most moving song of all time. it's like being at the triumphant end of an 80s teen movie, driving into the sunset with the girl/boy of yr dreams, for 6 glorious minutes.
- favela funk courtesy simon r, but i'm saving writing about that for my blog innit.
-an old logan sama tape where he plays the delicious track 'baby' where davinche makes like fennesz and wiley sounds so so sad.

5 hours commuting leads to :

crosby / nash : has some very good songs, much to my amazement

mandarin - fast present future : unexpectedly quite good

parkins / mori - phantom orchard : just lovely

soulwax - any minute now : god, i hate this saturated rock production

a short apnea - just arrived : still not sure

juana molina - segundo : fab drones and gorgeous melodies

So far today:
The Psychedlic Sounds of West Africa comp - excellent, if not particularly psych, IMO.
Nils Petter Molvaer "Streamer" - not much of interest has happened since "Solid Ether."
Roy Hargrove "Strength EP" - two fantastic, relentless funk tracks at the beginning (the first of which ties in nicely with the above-mentioned comp), the remaining 30 minutes range from mediocre to good.

Intend to listen to some Andrew Hill later on.

In the last 24 hours...

Last night, was listening to the Fiery Furnaces' Blueberry Boat , in particular the sequence 'Paw Paw Tree' > 'My Dog Was Lost But Now He's Found' > 'Mason City'.

Today I've been listening to some Wu-Tang (in preparation for when I get hold of their new live album): a bit of Only Built 4 Cuban Linx on the way to work, a bit of Iron Flag on the way home.

Then this evening I've been listening to various things on Fluxblog and Byron Bitchlaces (http://shoelaces.typepad.com/) , notably 'Gay Boy' by Futon and 'Heiden' by Michael Mayer. And the three songs by The Mean Corner available for download from their website (http://www.thepirateship.org/themeancorner.htm) - I guess the Mean Corner are my discovery of the day...

"Empire/Dragon" by Circle for about the fifth bloody day inna row...must put something else on the deck.

In the car: various freebie CDs from the daily mirror, etc. My daughter's favourite (and mine): "Video killed the radio star" by Buggles. Honourable mentions: "99 Red Balloons", "The Final Countdown" and "Word Up".

you know i never heard word up until this august?
i was at a free party on raithlin island off the coast of northern island and as i was looking for whoever had the weed i walked past a rig that was blaring it
i was fairly ambushed by the funk
what a song!
i initially thought it was prince
no idea how i managed to avoid it until the age of 22...

Francesco, I'm jealous of you hearing "Sleep Fantasy Dream" for the first time (if it is)

francesco
24-10-2004, 11:02 AM
Yes is the firt time i listened to Virgin Prunes, it's not like "a new form of beauty" was so easily available before this reissue, and i should say i'm amazed, like, all these (too much!) years of beeing a fan of post punk and Coil and various industrial esoterica and i never have a chance to listen to them! Sleep Fantasy Dream is incredible but so also Come to Daddy, all the (double) CD is amazing really. Now i wonder if to buy other reissues ("if i die i die" for example)... probably yes (and i have right now a "must buy" list that is putting me in total poverty....)
the alice coltrane "lord of lord" is another masterpiece but "friendly galaxy" and "universal consciousness" are probably superior.
still not know what to think of the Jah Wobble 3cd set. on the good news is was not to expensive at all, then he his my favorite bass player (and Keith Levine is my favorite guitar player...) for his work in PIL and ORB Blue Room (also in Primal Scream Screamadelica Higher DUB Symphony). I was maybe hoping more of things like the collaborations with Czukay and Liebezeit, but mostly is bland triphop, bland ambient dub (it is 90% track from the '90, indeed) and bland etnofusion... maybe it will grow on me.
The Indiepop 01 compilation from Rough Trade/Mute look gorgeus, i loved their previous Post Punk/Rock'n'Roll/country/electronica compilations: not perfect neither "definitive", but full of extraordinary tracks (and some dull ones...). This kind of compilation needs time to be unfolded., but i was shocked to hear the early single of My Bloody Valentine "paint a rainbow": fantastic, but the sound not like MBV you know, they sound so young and naive.

cos he's quite obviously a dick, an arrogant, mysogynist twart and there are elements of the record that ape blues singers and stereotypes of black men in such a way that he's almost playing a reverse minstrel if you see what i mean. I guess unconciously one of the things that i look for in music regardless of melodies and exciting music is empathy, would i get on with this person on any level, are they fascinating at all? On this record at least, other records he's less hateable but i find it hard to get over the fact that he is such an asshole.

listening to the radio for the past three days, (my hard-drives are dead) so it's been static, news from the US, classical, snatches of soul, dreary ol' rawk, but I've enjoyed all the raw garage.

sorted some speakers/amp now and I've listened to the Wu-Tang Hits album, diggin Janet Jackson - All Nite, anything by Juan Maclean, outkast, the latest mayer, and hours of john peel that I brought on disc. And not enough house...

that tune is wicked! do you like the second version with kano? also on that tip... the last track on the creeper tape. i don't know what it's called, but it's got that same choppy, crystalline glimmer. "all the time" i guess? those helicopter noises are off the hinges.

listening to the new villalobos cd again and i've got to say it is fantastic, i'm not a massive fan of minimaly techno but this is ace, really pulls you in, all shading and turning surfaces, funky and supple with the south american instrumentation of the first lp playing a very abstract part. It's lovely listening to it as the fireworks explode outside.

KOD were incredible, saw them twice in concert and Julian was able to get that guitar sound perfect. It's too bad they broke up. Their last album had some brilliant songs on it, but Love is Hell, with Third Time, Mainly Mornings, and Prize is flawless. Is the CD the one with the extra tracks on it?

Sadly, they were lumped into the whole shoegazer set, with Pale Saints, Ride, Chapterhouse, MBV, but they actually wrote good songs.

There's a two disc KOD set with an extra disc of rarities, but I don't know if I'm going to pick it up.

Are you going to pick up the Depeche Mode remix set? What does anyone think about it, other than flogging a dead horse into glue?

KOD were incredible, saw them twice in concert and Julian was able to get that guitar sound perfect. It's too bad they broke up.

they were absolutely the soundtrack to my late teenage years, although i must admit they don't now resonate emotionally in the same way. i saw them live once, at king tut's in glasgow circa 1994: they were absolutely incandescent, so good i missed the last bus home to edinburgh in order to see the encore. rock!

they also had the best strobe light ever (although OMD in 1991 run them close). it was like the end of eraserhead.

i haven't got the rarities CD thing, but my friend andrew (who has a wonderful band called swimmer one, who don't sound anything like KoD but are shot through with their influence nevertheless) did me a tape of various B-sides etc. i must dig it out.


Are you going to pick up the Depeche Mode remix set? What does anyone think about it, other than flogging a dead horse into glue?

hmmmm. it's sitting there in the iTunes music store, daring me to buy it. but i haven't succumbed yet. when i posted that last message, i was rediscovering my immense (and partly forgotten) love for the mode: however, from what i've heard i don't think i hear/enjoy the same things about their music as most of their remixers.

that said: i know one day i'll be bored and i'll download it. there's a richard x mix of enjoy the silence that i'd quite like to hear, but i don't think it's on the album.

I was a huge DM fan back in my teens, with Violator still being one of my most listened to discs. The remix collection is okay. Not great. Most of them I already had on other releases.

The one track that stands apart is Goldfrapps remix of Halo. Really seem to like that one for some reason.

the Christ CD . 1/2 of BOC

really? i never knew that. explains a lot, though ;)

i love the album (and the EP that preceded it) but was bitterly, bitterly disappointed when i saw him live in glasgow (about a year back? downstairs at the 13th note, anyway). utterly devoid of atmosphere.

today, btw, i have been listening to the METAL compilation my dear friend made for me. right now it's killswitch engage. standout track, however, is converge's you fail me: just stunning. i remember them playing it at ATP earlier in the year and being blown away then too.

I've been listening to WDISKO.net a lot lately. Some fine tunes and mixing... Two of the only things I've heard in the last few hours that I really recognized were Jimmy Bo Horne "Spank" and Freestyle "Don't Stop the Rock." Also the new MU 12" Paris Hilton / We love guys named Luke, and Abe Duque What Happened? Angola 60s/70s and Brazilian stuff, new DJ Nuts comp. from Wax Poetics, Baile Funk (older stuff, compilations from the Brazilian Beat folks in NYC) picking up more in the Angolan stuff now that I know a few words of portuguese. and some of the new Baile Funk, the Diplo mix CD and Funk Neurotico 23 & 24. and Dance Mania, of course.

So far I have listened to The Muppet Show album, which is a classic. ("Daddy, I don't want to watch Noddy - can I listen to some music instead?" Too right!)

And then "King Tubby's Firehouse Revolution" on the way into work - some nice Tubby digital biz post sleng teng.

That Pressure Sounds comp is ace! The Soundclash Dubplate Style ones are fantastic, too, and a great complement to the Firehouse Revolution one, with very little overlap. Brutally minimal, brilliant stuff - and Wackies gets all the credit. I wonder if there are any more releases of post-1985 Tubbys?
I still think it's an underrated phase of Tubbys' career, but one well worth looking into, and I say that on the strength of those 3 compilations alone.

john eden
25-11-2004, 01:23 PM
Yeah, I've not got those soundclash dubplate ones - keep meaning to pick them up...

I think things may have tailed off a bit quality wise, tho, I'll be very happy to be proved wrong. The only other comp I've seen around (on vinyl only) is a sort of "tribute to King Tubby" put out by Phantom and all that after he died. It's supposed to be a bit pony tho.

Yeah - the Pressure Sounds one is obviously what sent them down the road of their "Maximum Pressure" sublabel with stuff by Jammy and Techniques and so on. Only heard those 2, but they are wicked as well - highly recommended if you like the Firehouse one.

25-11-2004, 01:46 PM
i thought tubby dropped into a kind of 'overseeing' role after 'tempo'- messing w/ electronics and occassionally telling phantom et al what to do- even the stuff on the pressure sounds comp is 'produced at king tubby's' rather than 'produced by king tubby'

i'm still loving the 12 volume(!) 'revenge of king jammy's super power allstars' lps (only two more to get)- prime mid 80s stuff

Thanks for the recommendations. I think only about 7 or 8 releases came out after Arleen Ruddock (Tubby's daughter) took over the studio after his death, of which the Phantom set might be one (the second volume of Soundclash Dubplate Style is another). I'd assume that quality control would have taken a back seat by then. I'll look out for it though.
I've heard wonders about that Techniques set and obviously that'll have to be poached somewhere along the line! I really rate that The Crowning of Prince Jammy set, some absolutely crackin' tracks on that. "Pablo in Moonlight City", the dub to Earl Zero's "Please Officer", alone is worth the price of admission, and don't get me raving about things like "Jehovia", which are just stellar.
Incidentially, has anyone heard David Rodigan's Dub Classics on the now-defunct Rewind Selecta label? My gateway into the depths of dub - ever short of funds, I had to pick up that or a Dubhead compilation, and picking Rodigan was definitely a fateful choice! I've been hooked since.

You're right, fixing radios was a more lucrative activity and a lot of the cuts were mixed by his engineers, so I wrote Tubbys' instead of Tubby's. A bit confusing maybe.
Oh man, I had no idea there were 12 instalments of the Super Power Allstars! Thanks!

The Techniques comp is awesome. AWESOME I TELL YA!!! :cool:

Yeah "crowning" one of my favourites ever as well. The Maximum Pressure King Jammy one is excellent, but not quite as good as that for my money. I have to pick up the Digital B and Xterminator ones as well...

Yeah! Paul Meme I think has the Rodigan comp - some fantastic tunes on there and definitely the right road to take at the crossroads if dubhead is the other one! (Tho some of that stuff is great, but by no means all).

that's on vinyl- the 3cds cover the same tracks (although whether they have the odd spot of juggling like the vinyl, i don't know.

re: dubhead. i'm still waiting for dubversion's thing on digi-dub, but i have to say since moving to leeds and attending subdub regularly, i've got back into it. there's even some stuff you can listen to at home ;)
(i've been meaning to do an entry on this subject , but have not got round to finishing it). jah warrior and naph-tali's ‘one of these days’ lp is a bit of a classic in our house.

i'd second that- the best max. pressure comp by far.

the digital b and xterminator ones are not quite as consistent, but have enough stone cold killers to be worth it: shabba's 'heart of a lion', morgan heritage's 'what we need is love', mutabaruka & luciano's 'psalm 24' & sizzla's 'life's road' being examples. however never, i repeat never listen to 'we will make it' by L.M.S. awful....

i haven't bought any B&F stuff since they went cd only (apart from the satta 7"s), royals in dub- got the 10" which is wicked- vocals/dj version/dub (increasingly i can't deal with a complete dub album). haven't seen the chin-loy comp, but isn't it just aquarius dub and some alternate versions?- overrated imo.

Not to be confused with The Congos' Heart Of The Congos,
this is an album with a great story behind it... In 1977, a
would-be reggae promoter brought some fellows from Zaire to
Jamaica in hopes of creating a new African reggae sound.
Apparently, she abandoned the two Africans soon after they
arrived in Jamaica and left them stranded on the mean
streets of Kingston. Not speaking any English, they had to
beg for money and food to survive. Eventually, they found
themselves at Lee Perry's house and somehow communicated
their desperate story. Perry took their arrival as a sign:
Jah himself had sent these guys from Africa to make a
connection with the Black Ark. Soon after, the three of them
were in the Ark recording the six songs that make up From
The Heart Of The Congo. It's an incredible and ground
breaking collaboration, done long before anyone was
attempting such a crossover, and even before reggae had
become popular in Africa. The result was a thick, swirling,
tribal groove that is unique in the Lee Perry canon. Killers
include "African Roots", "Mutoya Motema", and - oddly enough
- the mislabelled Robert Palmer tune is really good, too!

One advantage of living in back-a-bush is that your local wax shack still has a bunch of B&F vinyl... I'll check if he still has that Chantells. Why'd B&F quit vinyl anyway?
Addendum: new B&F website launched today, will let registered users d/l full tracks (45 in total). The discussion board is back up as well, apparently.

I tend to buy this stuff a couple of years after it comes out because I can find them cheaper then.
The disadvantage here (in Austria) is that no one ever seems to want to get rid of their quality reggae vinyl (understandably) so all you ever see in the second hand bins are loads of Eddy Grant, Marley/Tosh/Wailers, Black Uhuru, etc. And yes, those B&F sets aren't the cheapest new, so I'd do exactly the same. Cruel economics!

2003 UK World Clash CD1.

Essentially the top soundsystems in the world playing about 30 seconds of excellent dubplates, rewinding them, screaming "Bloodclaaaaaaat!!!!", referring to the other soundsystems and then saying "suck your mumma" whilst the crowd shouts their appreciation and gives it the old klaxon. For 70 minutes.

Still trying to like Streets Disciple and failing miserably - not really sure why everyone's got so excited about this. I'm finally resigned to Nas being unable to make decent albums. Also been listening to the new manitoba/caribou album this morning - pretty disappointed so far especially as Up In Flames was far and away my favourite record of last year but it might need a bit more time to grow into. On the plus side the vocals are much much stronger than last time but overall it seems to have moved towards straight indie territory a bit too much

Re: World of Echo : yes, it's the one with the DVD. The extras tracks on the CD are, to be frank, kind of sketchy, but the DVD is more than worth it. It's a couple of films (by Phil Niblock, IIRC) of Russell playing his cello live- only had the chance to watch one so far, but it's a long unbroken sequence of Russell playing, filmed mostly in closeup on his hands, the strings, his face, etc.

Thanks Nick for the Optimo recommendation- I'm one of those who enjoyed the Black Strobe mix, and the tracklisting for the Optimo volume looks fantastic, if a bit obvious in places. Black Strobe's own housey/disco/whatever productions are usually much more fun than Smagghe's mixes...

And today I dug out the Richard X album (still love it, though the Annie track is disappointing), John Lennon's Shaved Fish comp (bought it to get "#9 Dream" without the rest of Walls and Bridges , and clean CD versions of "Instant Karma!" and "Cold Turkey" outside of some tacky posthumous "best-of" comp...and not too much overlap with Plastic Ono Band or Imagine, either), and TTC's Batards Sensibles album.

Re: Thanks Nick for the Optimo recommendation- I'm one of those who enjoyed the Black Strobe mix, and the tracklisting for the Optimo volume looks fantastic, if a bit obvious in places. Black Strobe's own housey/disco/whatever productions are usually much more fun than Smagghe's mixes...

And today I dug out the Richard X album (still love it, though the Annie track is disappointing), John Lennon's [I]Shaved Fish comp (bought it to get "#9 Dream" without the rest of Walls and Bridges , and clean CD versions of "Instant Karma!" and "Cold Turkey" outside of some tacky posthumous "best-of" comp...and not too much overlap with Plastic Ono Band or Imagine, either), and TTC's Batards Sensibles album.


no worries but im not called nick.
i heard a morris fulton remix of an annie track today and it was totally casual.
i can't wait for the mu album to come out, infact there are a few albums this year i'm desperate to hear and that's quite unusual. one of them is that konono no 1 cd. http://www.crammed.be/konono/
been waiting for that for a year.

was listening to my ipod on non-organised today and had this perfect row of hits of sunshine, it has really made my week, it was so great i wrote them down and i'm gonna make a cd when i get a new burner

mommy what's a funkadelic - funkadelic
wild in the country - bow wow wow

I saw Cecil Tayler practising on his piano in his underwear, eating strawberries and drinking champagne from the bottle, when I was 12.

I admit that I led a charmed life, until the age of 13.

I've also been kissed by Lauren Bacall, too. I was in a pram, and apparently she said, "Aw! What a cute baby! mwaw!"

got sent copy of the virus syndicate cd , (markone's crew of mcs from manc,)and fuck me it's ace.
k-punk praised the last markone lp that featured these guys in his top ten of last year, he's gonna love this..

as k-punk pointed out virus have enuff distance from london to not get entangled in the whole scene, the intercrew merking and the scramble for a big label deal, and they've made an album for planet mu of really good imaginative beats with some wicked mcing, and it's all grimey.
the album is ghetto reportage in the best sense, with that whole vibe that good hip hop albums have of a gangster movie. tunes about getting into debt cos you're trying to show off, shotting drugs (with no remorse) girls that get screwed over by men and get fucked up and into drugs, what goes around comes around mentality, and robbing banks, as well as some good old fashioned boasting. and its not social worker style like ms dynamite or depressing lefty stuff either.

i really really hope that the press pick up on this fkr and some of the people that write on this board, it's easy to push the london side cos they're close etc, but this is a top album, and it's not coming out on a label that's got the cash for big money videos and street campaigns and all that shit. But it's really fucking good.
even my girlfriend enjoyed it and she thinks grime mc's are mostly idiots.

Re: Manc grime, Raw T were on Cameo's show the other day. Thought they were excellent actually. They don't attack the mic as much do they, the Northern mans dem, they lurk in the the background a bit, a bit more softness and sarcasm in the voice. And the production is not as junglistic- it's less jarring and perhaps more housey, a little more melody in there. But it was pretty damn good.

So Tony Wilson is pushing these guys? Interesting!

do you lot know about audioscrobbler (http://www.audioscrobbler.com)?

it's a little app that you run in the background (so you need to either launch it each time you boot up, or include it in your startup items) which intergrates with your music player of choice and uploads your playlist statistics onto your own personalised stats page. you can click on artist names and find other users who are into that artist and then check out what else they listen to...

you can then build up groups which include stats from all members of the group and show overall charts of artists / tracks. so there could be a dissensus group, for example. these groups can be open to all or invite only affairs.

there's even a way to allow it to include plays on ipods etc, but I haven't worked that bit out yet.

Just listening to Tribesman Assault - Wackies dub LP reissue.

I've got a pretty low tolerance for dub albums unless they're super FX-drenched (Dub Factor is probably my favourite) and this one's a bit too minimal for me BUT it is saved by a brilliant effect on a couple of tracks that sounds like they're slowing the guitar / horns tapes down by hand while re-dubbing it over the drums tape! Hard to describe but sounds ace!

The Knife - Heartbeats A bit late on this one. Love the Rex the Dog mix (of course). Someone discribed it as the perfect end-credit music for some un-produced 80s brat-pack film. Sounds like an apt description to me.

Mark Rae - Reach Out To Me Holy crap!!! Played it over and over. Everyone who dropped by on the weekend (Even my spousal-equivalent's country-music-lovin' father!) was like, "What is that?"

"Mark Rae"

"I don't know who that is, but it's good. Can you burn it for me?"

"Sorry. Vinyl."

"Damn. I'll have to Soulseek it."

i bought some christmas presents, until i went to muji to buy my dad a shirt and i was told they wouldn't authorise it. so i went to the bank to see if there was anything wrong with my account and the cash machine wouldn't show me, waited in the cue with other people experiencing similar failures but got bored so called em up and found out i had the cash but got cut off trying to sort it out.
when i got home and called em it turned out my spending was a bit too radical for em, luxury goods, perfume for my sister etc, in john lewis followed by a mobile phone fr my mum so they had locked off my account, all the hallmarks of a teenage thief's wish list.
Anyway got home packed the pressies listened to johnny hammonds gears, having a fusion thing at the mo.

From 1998. This album had the hugest bass sound around at the time and it still rates...

In effect mode - Al B Sure

Kahyan Kalhor & Ali Akbar Moradi - In the Mirror of the Sky -- amazing

Haydn - The Piano Sonatas 12 disc collection -- awesome

Cecil Lytle - Words for a Hymn to the Sun/The Complete Piano Music of G.I. Gurdjieff and Th. De Hartmann, Vol. 3 -- amazing

Sleep Archive - Hospital Tracks -- sound like techno pan sonic, nice

Nas - Hiphop is Dead -- (sure is! this pretty much sucks not even sabbath-sample or a song called "black republican" can save it don't waste your time)

I'm not trying to start anything, but judging by your first three selections^ do YOU think you're the person to say that Nas' album sucks or that hip hop is "dead"? Stick to what you know...PLEASE. One.

rhythm and sound cds
carl craig - chicken noodle soup and the 12" its off
geiom - berkane sol 12" 1,2 and 3...
burial - breezeblock mix by kode9 (there are some amazing tunes on it that did not end up on the album sadly)
high planes drifter - somewhere/4x4 lick 12"
biconicals of the rammellzee... was not as good as i thought it would be, the guy has so much theory and imagery that is interesting but alot of the tunes sound almost goofy, for lack of a better word, not really electro-y at all)
wiley - flyboy ep
trim/newhams - boogey man 12" white label
blackdown keysound mix - some sick beats there,,,
kode9-fat larry's skank remix
quest - overdose
dj hatcha - dub express ep
groove chronicles - stoned cold12"
wu tang clan - 36 chambers
bugz in the attic - fabric mix cd
semtex - grime wave
mantronix - the album
jay dee - welcome 2 detroit
dj screw mixtapes
lutan fyah - whitewash walls rhythm and sound edit 7"
mykal rose - let your love r&s edit 7"
some anthony braxton live mp3s..

on holiday so managed to cram alot in!

not without my neighbour threatening to "let the shit hit the fan" if i carried on listening to music past 11pm... what exactly are the laws on this??im in a flat in london and this guy loses it no matter what volume i have my music it, whenever hes in... the second i turn it up a little (say 10% Vol on a 50 w amp with decent speakers) he turns up screaming at the door,saying hes calling the police,getting me evicted etc etc ... what rights does the music listener have against some loon like this\?? (he also stated that i;m "not allowed to listen to music or watch tv after 11" !!!! ):eek:

Silent Shout by the Knife. Album's grown on me after a few listens ,
some cuts i find a bit daffy , maddening as the Album seems to alternate between good cuts , and slightly nutty -club odd ones (Title cut , The Captain , Forest Families yeah)
Like the synths sometimes , their treated vocals sometimes yes, sometimes no

Drum's Not Dead by Liars. Looking at the titles i could see this was prolly going to be rough,
first cut Be Quiet Mr.Heart Attack! hmmm well, alright let's hear this ...
Second cut wait a minute , sorry this went off the deck. Giving this one bk

Band Wagon Shigeru Suzuki. Guitarist from Happy End's second solo joint
I do recognize Bill Payne from Little Feat (!) pianoing away in the mix.
This goes down easier, pleasant enough, does become BGM after a while though

I’m in the midst of my annual only-listen-to-old-music-for-a-month phase, a great way to reload the batteries. Today I have finally found a Sylvester track I love, namely ‘Over and Over’; it’s all about the two breaks, with the party-crowd rumbling and chanting for, what feels like, an eternity. As with all good grooves, it just gets better and better the longer you listen (listen? DANCE!) to it, ideally it should be at least three times as long (half an hour of rejoicing!). Those handclaps...

resuscitating this thread is definitely a good idea.

Joanna Newsom - Ys. All this talk and bluster 'round these, I had to go back and check. Still love it.

Wiley - Tunnel Vision - various cuts here and there off 1 and 2. He'll be sorely missed. Can't wait for the album.

Shackleton - Blood on my hands - picked this up recently, and I've been hooked. I love the feel of the A side, and the two on the back are great too. B1, Naked, is sorta in Kode 9-y territory, with organ/melodica-ish sounds, and AWESOME sub-bass glissandos. B2, Hypo Angel, has some sort of Indian or Arab singing over a cavernous beat. Blackdown would surely dig.

started the day off with classic Klezmer recordings from the 1930s. a very nice drive to work.

and now in the office my headphones are soaking in the gorgeous sounds of Gerard Grisey's Solo Pour Deux... the Clarinette pieces are so nice... like giant cats purring!

I love hearin these!!

today is my electro freak out day. Maybe it's the cold, dark weather we are havin' out here. :rolleyes:

Hmmm..

Lory D style techno
Dopplereffekt
Omd (Maid of Orleans)
Clone comp-We Still Kill the Old Way.

nothing new but hey
still love it

yes yes! nothing like cold music for a cold day. recently did a mix based on this premise!!

dopplereffekt are really great, gesamtkunstwerk especially. are you pretty into omd? i've been curious about them for awhile now, but unsure of a good "jumping off point" to get into them. is there a particular record you would suggest (coming from the icy synth pop angle)?
