Lobsters

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

This is a great EP guys. I have been following VLEK for awhile now, and just visited their site and ever since been listening to this combination of ragged and hi fi by Squeaky Lobster, of fat synth sounds alongside dirty hip hop kicks and snares, the Arabic scales. The fourth track on this EP titles Aarnivalkea is my favorite. The photo shows Sqeaky LobstersWill-O’-The-Wisp’ EP covers drying. The EP has been released Aug 1st, and you could purchase it here.




Rainy monday movies

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

I always loved this breakbeat, and this notorious snare, and Rainy Monday movies (The San Francisco based musician and producer) made ‘My love reigns down’ of ‘More than just’, a real real funky little piece. Slow, broken, breathing and super funky. Couldn’t use this beat  better myself, although I must admit I have tried.. more than once

CS

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

The first thing that comes to mind while listening to the very beginning of ‘Remember‘ by C Spencer Yeh is earlier David Bowie material or Eno’s ‘Before and after science‘Another green world’ or ‘Here come the warm jets’. This project Songs 2002 is out on Destijl records as a Double A sided cassette reissue of a severely limited one-sided LP. C S Yeh was born in Taipei, Taiwan, repped Cincinnati for many many years and is now based in Brooklyn, New York. Buy it HERE!


Apnoea

Saturday, August 27th, 2011

These days, you could make any music you want, no matter what kind of tools you are using, and it really doesn’t make a difference if you have used a studio, your bedroom or your bathroom to record a piece, or if you have used piano, a bottle or your tongue, and nobody would give aflying f… if you have used virtual instruments or vintage keys….. anything goes. That`s why it is so refreshing to find the traditional, done the old way, as in New Mexico‘s Bryce Hample who exchanges sterile synthesizers and sequencers for classical stringed instruments to write and perform gentle compositions. This is a second edition of Apnoea – an Hedia reissue that we love so much. You are about to hear an excerpt of ‘Featherache Part 2′, and it is one of the tracks that appears in the ‘Bridgetown records summer mixtape of 2011′

Featherache Part II (excerpt)


Backyard – The movie

Saturday, August 27th, 2011

Backyard – such a small name for a great little movie about the music scene in Reykjavík featuring great Icelandic artists ( Morr & Kimmi) such as Múm, Hjaltalín, FM BELFAST, Retro Stefson, BORKO, Sin Fang. It’s a Rock-u-mentary about a dude, Árni Rúnar Hlöðversson, who is also playing with FM BELFAST, who invited top Icelandic bands like Fm Belfast, Múm, Hjáltalin, Sin Fang and many more to his backyard have a block party (it is a 2 by 2 backyard), and while the viewer is flooded with wild Icelandic colors, tones and sights, I really wish I was there cause it seems so much fun, everybody seems so positive and in good spirit, and there is some great musicianship you catch, real inspiring, adit just explained to me how come this place has become the music Mecca of the north. Movie directed by Árni Sveinsson and it is 71 minutes long with 18 minutes of bonus material. Check out the awesome trailer and run tell your friends.

 


Babe, Terror

Friday, August 26th, 2011

When you look at the photo of this guy ( Babe, Terror for you) he seems like a nice guy. I mean, he doesn’t look like a guy who can do some damage. ……So, think twice, put your headphones on, and I guess the photo had deceived you too.

Babe, terror album originally out by Perdizes dream and now by Glue Moon records as well, a new cassette label from Venice CA; needless to say, what had become an industry standard almost, all customized, limited editions stuff. And guys, ‘Preparing a voice to meet the people coming’,  is a great fuckin record. Buy it here

Barlande, the new album by 73 years old father and 28 years old son Pedro Soler and Gaspar Claus, an album which showcases an ancient way of playing flamenco guitar with a futuristic approach to cello, a father and son’s collaboration. Barlande was produced by Bryce Dessner, guitarist with The National. The band played in 2006 at the Guitares au Palais festival in the south of France, whose music director is Pedro Soler. Dessner, who studied classical guitar at Yale and co-founded the chamber ensemble Clogs, recorded Barlande at The National’s studio in Brooklyn.

Its Klaus Von Barrel again

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

It’s the second time we talk about Klaus Von Barre, the man behind The KVB, and recently Die Jungen . Inspired by the 50s and 60s and still sounds contemporary, something out of a David Lynch movie, or a track Nicolas Cage could cover afterwards in shown in a romantic scene . I really love this album ‘Just a dream’ out now and waiting for you on Bandcamp for a bargain price.
