    Default what did you listen to today?

    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

    Slimzee's bingo beats vol.3 mix, which is just the thing for Friday morning.
    Also can't get Wonder feat. Kano's "What have you done?" out of my head. Top tune.

    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 , notably 'Gay Boy' by Futon and 'Heiden' by Michael Mayer. And the three songs by The Mean Corner available for download from their website - I guess the Mean Corner are my discovery of the day...

    Jim Jones - "Crunk Muzik"

    This would be the biggest hit if they'd drop it as a single.

    "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".
