Not as tidy as you would expect

October 26th, 2010

I was listening to Tidy Kid for the first time, while thinking he could be an Warp artist and still shine, meaning he got those extra qualities and musical and technical abilities without even knowing Warp had released a Bibio remix of his. One of his recording ventures is titled ‘One Week With My Casio’ , and it`s one of the most creative EP`s you could lay your hands on. If you consider it took only a week to create – song composition plus recording, and that it was all done with a CASIO CT-102 you are going to be quite shocked., I really dig this ground breaking, adventurous, spontaneous, and imaginative EP. It`s the 2nd time in a short period of time that we write about bedroom casio geeks, no offense. This NYC based musician`s EP was originally released in cassette by Germany’s Froggi Records. This K7 only release is limited to 150 copies, by the way.

Allister Izenberg

October 22nd, 2010

This dude looks like he has fallen from Mars, like Bowie in the Hunky dory days or like Karl Wallinger of the World party fame. But his music is so imaginative, such a great songwriter and the psychedelic packaging, imagine delicious cupcakes filled with magic mushrooms, our artist of the week right here, Allister Izenberg.

Just like the Roxy days

October 20th, 2010

In Bryan Ferry`s case, a solo effort means, an album just with Gilmour, Manzanera, Greenwood and Nile Rodgers on guitars, Brian Eno and Colin Good on keys, Andy Newmark plus 2 other drummers, Frank Ricotti on percussion, Marcus Miller on bass, A string quartet, Wind instruments, background vocalists, engineers and the whole nine yards….but you know what?? Shit sounds good, like in the old Roxy days..listen to ‘Song of the siren’ and watch our visuals – don’t know if it`s better than the original cover of Kate Moss , but that`s just our  taste…Thank you AZ for the tip!


The Pantaleimon Lofiles interview

October 20th, 2010

Although we have never met her in person, she seems like one of the sweetest, most gentle people you`ll ever come across. When I was first introduced to her wonderful music, it called to mind thoughts of innocence, naivety, somewhat child-like and pure, like a kid’s behavior, something yet untarnished by this world.

Andria Degens, aka Pantaleimon, lives by the ocean, in the small town of Hastings, England, and from the little I have seen of this small town, I can envision her sitting by the fireplace in her cozy home, watching the ocean and working on her new album. Her music, to those of you who never heard of her, is minimalistic, hypnotic, and mostly acoustic, like a soundtrack for the Yoga classes she has been teaching, where the spaces between the played notes are as important as the voices you hear. On ‘Trees Hold Time’, her 1999 mostly instrumental album, she demonstrated her Appalachian Dulcimer playing technique, an instrument she had mastered for two and a half years while in Southeast Asia. On ‘Mercy Oceans’, her 2nd album, released in 2005, she added her clear, angelic soft voice to a bunch of great songs (listen to ‘We Love’ and ‘At Dawn’), and few years later she released a different version of Mercy Oceans entitled ‘Heart of the Sun’, a collaborative unique ‘remix’ project that sounds like a great Eno ambient record with Pantaleimon’s added value to it, with contributions from all those friends and musicians, such as Collin Potter, Susan Stenger, Andrew W.K, and Strings of Consciousness. In between recording she has kept herself busy performing as Pantaleimon all over Europe with Antony and the Johnsons, James Blackshaw, Six Organs of Admittance, Matt Sweeney and Bonnie Prince Billy, as well as collaborations with Current 93, Hugo Race, and Susan Stenger to name a few. ‘Tall Trees’ was a gorgeous EP CD released by the Abaton book company, a follow up to ‘Heart of the Sun’. Her plans for the near future are to continue recoding her up and coming album and as she says on her site`s news section…” Follow your heart and have faith”…
