Kingmaker - Sleepwalking
An afternoon of 90's indie to follow
Currently on the Max Tundra mix of Helicon 2 by Mogwai (I think it's some Bowery Electric then)...
at The Bull And Gate a few years ago? Bought back good memories of the 90s. At the moment I'm listening to Goldfrapp however.
Bowery Electric. Good call.
one of the greatest
didn't mean to put that there. nvrmnd
INTENSE! Industrial, yay! http://open.spotify.com/track/2uNlY9GC8KLKRtKcXOWkhP
seeing them on the 23rd :)
Lamacq is playing Valentine's Day by David Bowie.
All the talk about their recent shows got me properly listening to them for the first time (which I guess really was one of the main points of them doing it). Been listening incessantly to the 'classic' albums for the past month or so, and on an given day which I think is the best could be one of four (Autobahn, TEE, Man Machine and Computer World being the contenders).
All in all, I'm enjoying them...
Seriously awesome live download from their website.
But goddamn can that woman whinge. Seriously, navel-gazing on a whole new level. I think I can guess why she's still single.
it probably needs a short version of around 4 minutes
end then an extended version which would probably be that version up there^ with an extra 8 bars between the penultimate and final 'verses' - 4 freak out and 4 bringing it right down before the final build
it's good for now
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO READ BUT I'VE GOT A LOT OF TOYS
MY DADDY'S A LAZY MIDDLE CLASS INTELLECTUAL
MY MOMMY'S ON VALIUM, SO INEFFECTUUUUAAAAL
It's warming up
But has just this instant changed to Gangs - ...And So I Watch You From Afar.
Good start to Friday evening.
wondering whether to shell out for the reissues
Listening to it properly for the first time.
just got in from work soaking wet. Just want something to mumble along to.
It really is very good, you know.
...in the third quarter for me, but it starts strong and finishes on top so yeah, all in all, pretty good.
because (You Will) Set The World On Fire, You Feel So Lonely You Could Die and Heat are all awesome
I'm going to put Beaucoup Fish on next. It's been a while.
And then off to bed
enjoyed playing several times the new Colt Silvers album and now from something very different Suuns - but can't really get into it, floating by me I guess. I can see how brilliant it could be but a bit too intense for my frame of mind right now ... I've got this terrible cold. :(
I'm now onto Klaus Schulze- Cyborg
It is 7:40am on the west coast of the US, I had a coworker threaten me today, and as I am a timid human being, I have taken it poorly. So I am drinking and listening to Bright Eyes to try and sleep.
This album is fucking amazing.
I've becomea little obsessed with blaxploitation soundtracks recently...
best band ever
basically been listening to records all day - Duffy, GZA, Holly Herndon, Blade Runner soundtrack - great day :)
One of my top 5 Fall albums certainly.
Haven't paid it particular attention until recently, Flat of Angles is SO good
tis a beast
I bloody love it!
and both times I've not really been in the mood for it. I'm going to put it on tomorrow no matter what. I've got a funny feeling it's really skippy though and that's why I never play it.
First listen. Not bad. Love that there's a track called Kill Jester.
I found a CD in a slipcase and I can't read the writing on it. It's obviously been recorded for me by someone who wanted me to hear it, but I neither recognise the CD, the writing or the music.
It's a live recording, and it's sort of cool jazz in bits and then other bits remind me of Eric Dolphy. Now I have screaming. It's not bad, whatever it is.
Corrina Taylor - Always coming back
5th time I've played it today. so good.
Spare - 1blt EP
Bleepy twisted melodic synth heavy grime instros.
Tiago - Babel Fish
Awsome 'wonky' don't think anyone calls anything wonky any more wonky instromental. Fucked up synths again innit.
DJ Q - Ineffable
Because its the best pop/dance crossover album since like Remedy by Basement Jaxx or Discovery by Daft Punk. Its got that ballance perfect between still being a grass roots dance album for the dance floor but killer full on pop everything else.
on Silent from Above at the moment. What a fucking album, man! Favourite thing Grouper's been involved with, I think.
μ-Ziq - Tango n' Vectif
first time listen to μ-Ziq too!
ah ok, he's Mike from the Expert Knob Twiddlers album
Last.fm tells me I haven't listened to this since 2006. That's far, far too long (and probably not quite true). Top album, and I reckon it might be the start of a bit of an Andrew Bird-a-thon over the next few days.
All killer, no filler
