At Home with..

May 27th, 2012

On the top left corner of his homepage it states: “Raymond Scott is a Composer, inventor, pianist, engineer, electronic music pioneer, and a control freak”.. I admire this dude’s work for quite some time now, and could never understand how it works together, you know, being a control freak and an innovator at the same time. I mean, if you want to leave the path, you got to let go off the stirring wheel, got to bend them rules, and when you hold on, you might loose the freakin edge. I guess you guys will never have to worry about shit like that cause, somehow he managed to do some serious damage…and for more than half a decade. This piece is almost 60 years old, and it hits my slimy soul exactly in the right place…..still does today..


Global feast pt 1

May 27th, 2012

If you visited our SOB radio facebook page lately, one couldn’t but notice the unique character of the postings. The lady in charge is our dear friend/ partner & rather inspirational writer ( Novel, Fiction ) Orit Wohlfeiler. Orit has been exploring authentic global music for some time now, fascinated by forgotten cultures and melodies, as she exposes us to extremely unique foreign tastings, bringing some added value to our off the wall 24/7 stream. You could listen to some guttural traditional chanting by the Inuit people, to magical gutsy singing of the gypsies, or even some full of feeling and soul Japanese funk for those of you that might have thought those people were too technical. We have thought it would be a great idea to enrich the daily servings with this new section we have named “Global Feast”. This time we want to share with you an authentic demonstration of Tuvan Throat Singing, of a love song. Got to watch this one.

 


Nablus Project

May 24th, 2012

The Nablus Project compilation is a new and supremely unique body of work commissioned by Coco Zoabi and Luke Carrell (editors of Coco’s OCD and International Tapes, respectively). The comp features exclusive tracks from Arc Light, Broken Boys, David Kanaga, Fiji Bijoux, Helado Negro, Lee Noble, Meadowlands, Megafortress, Missions, and Ñaka Ñaka. Each composition is built around the same amazing field recording of a Muezzin’s call to prayer in the Palestinian city of Nablus.

All proceeds from the compilation go to charity.

Listen to the gorgeous Algodón Egipcio – La Plegaria track and dig deep in your pockets.


Ghostandthesong Lofiles May Mixtape

May 24th, 2012

Our dear and extremely busy Berlin friend Matthias Kanik, the man behind Ghostandthesong, and one of the most intriguing musicians hailing from the Berlin experimental scene had made a May Mixtape for us, and the way he describes it,..” I did not make a normal mix tape.- it s a kind of collage. there are always songs mixed over each other”. A wild 30 minutes of “a very experimental, Kraut-Rock journey.

Listen to the freakin amazzzzing Ghostandthesong Lofiles May Mix

Check out some MK’s recent ventures HERE & HERE

And watch this funky Ou Inme video, created by multimedia animation studio hypertrashwonderland – the brain child of director and digital filmmaker Marcus Grysczok.


Life on loop

May 22nd, 2012

I have received a mail today from Andrew Hamlet, submitting ‘Life on Loop’, his first solo work under the moniker Tom Kitty Oliver to us for reviewing purposes. I got to be honest with you guys though, I am still stuck on the first track of this venture. Do you know why? Cause I am afraid to spoil the sensation. I was trying to understand the reasons to why this repetitive hypnotizing piece hits the spot so effectively..I think I understand now. It just enables me to digest. You know, at this life and pace that we are slaving for, it is rare to be able to stop, I mean, come to full stop, look around, ‘say, well, what the fuck’…inhale and just fully understand what’s going on around you.

I love the way this record came about, and wouldn’t change a word from the way Andrew describes the process: …”the songs on Life on Loop were each recorded in one sitting into an old reel to reel I found sitting on the sidewalk in San Francisco. The similarities to previous collaborations lie in the emphasis on texture and emotional resonance; the album also shares a similar feeling of coherence or global connectedness within the entire work with my previous collaborations. While recording each track, I would try to zone out as much aspossible in attempt to let my unconscious thoughts and feelings serve as guides for the direction of the songs. I never knew exactly what a song would sound like when first starting, but by the end of the process, I knew I had stated what I had been feeling at the time. In that way, this album is as much seven archived meditations as it is seven recorded songs”….Anyways, by now I have listened to the entire album and its awesome my friends, and I wouldn’t want to spoil the listening pleasure for you by analyzing it musically. Its purely coincidental I have received it at this time and day, where I am drowned in emotions, and going through wild times, and I feel a lot, and its been like a therapy session to me. I thank Andrew for sending us this tape, and I dedicate the music to a most special person far far away.

Teruyuki Nobuchika special

May 20th, 2012

For a long time I had the impression that Japanese art is rather technical, almost too precise and very detailed and it comes on their art’s feel account. Or at least I have thought so till I met a Japanese painter that used to be my landlord and witnessed a different way of thinking and approach to art, and later on met few great musicians, amongst musician extraordinaire Hahn Rowe, and most recently was exposed to Teruyuki Nobuchika’s minimalistic gorgeous piano music (Satie, Budd..) and realized I was quite wrong. Maybe part of the reason I was mistaken was that there is something constrained about their art, and hidden as it quite often occurs in a very private, kept to itself secretive culture and society, that doesn’t open up to strangers too easily. I am about to broadcast a show on the SOB platform dedicated to the wonderful music of Teruyuki. You could find out bio details HERE. Watch out for broadcast details on our Lofiles platform and the SOB one real soon..

Housewarming

May 19th, 2012

First of all, we want to congratulate theee man..Erik David Hidde, or as we once had called him, the hardest working dude in the business, who is celebrating a fruitful and super creative year with his Housewarming recording venture, who brought us J. Biscuits, Great view of the moon, Birkwin Jersey, Freakish Atlantic and many more. It has been quite a year for Mr. Hidde, and he had found a great way to celebrate; You could hear his quite impressive vocal performance on his latest and one of his best releases so far, coming from Hertford, UK based artist Codae (aka: Matt Mullen), titled ‘Unsaid’, a praiseworthy ambient experimental EP. On ‘Mutual’, you could hear our friend’s vocal. Real impressive.. So once again, Happy Birthday David, and keep on bringing us many more great records.
