Nearernesses

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Another song that has skipped my attention is by Ollie North, a Brian Eno of the guitar. And when I mention Brian Eno, I am talking about his older solo albums, as in Before and after science, Another green world, etc… I know those are large shoes to step into, but this guy is definitely worth the compliment. I have been listening to this hypnotic song over and over..and over again and lllllove it. Buy the Bringer EP and support this wonderful artist thus enable him keep on making such great music.

 


Holy

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

Usually I don’t write about music you would find everywhere. This album is an exception. One couldn’t come across this project and stay indifferent about it. No wonder it is released by my favorite label and the home of Balam Acab, the wonderful Triangle label. This debut, Holy other’s Held is everything I ever wanted music to be. So imaginative, a perfect combination of the ragged and polished, the musicality, the sexy tone and movement, the album is a one piece project, like albums used to tell a story when we grew up, not a one single and 11 fillers project. Although I don’t get stoned anymore, it reminds me the days I would get completely f…. up, put on my headphones and be carried away to better places and dreamful life, a long way from home, fears, pain and day to day bumps.If you are a reader of this blog, you know we don’t compromise in anyway, and truly promote the music we love, so run and buy this fucker. Graphics on the house as usual, especially when we get as excited and inspired.

Bird People

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

I have received this message on my Facebook page the other day:” Hello, my name is Uli Rois, I’m running a small label dedicated to psych/experimental/drone in Vienna, Austria and play with my own project Bird People. i like the work you are doing with Lofiles and wanted to let you have our recent tape”….”maybe you would like to give it a listen”.The photo above is from the first of the “field recording sessions”. In his own words:” Since a lot of the material I’m writing for the next Bird People album seems to be centered around the notion of travel, it seemed appropriate to do some recording “on the road”. With the help of a firewire-bus-powered audio interface the back of my Ford station wagon can be turned into a pretty decent mobile recording studio”. Hey, did I mention we love it???

 


13th

Friday, July 13th, 2012

Overall Meltdown. That’s how I felt this week. I guess I have overabused my CPU and it got heated up real bad. Its hard to cool it off considering today is one of the hottest days of summer and humidity marks new records. Got to pace myself, set my priorities straight, and shift to lower gear. Music allows me to do this. And today, by the way, Fri 13th, John Kolodij and his HIGH AURA’D help me through this, cooling everything down, till I’ll find myself in the arms of someone…special…extremely special..BUY the record HERE

Quarantine

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

For Quarantine, Lauren Halo’s debut album on Hyperdub, I will bend the rules and write about an artist everyone else out there is raving about. Hell, she deserves my salute and standing ovation big time. If you didn’t get a chance to give Q a listen yet, its about f..n time. This girl is on a serious mission. She is so creative, imaginative, innovative, her music’s so inspiring, like a new breed of Bjorks, just with the ability of technically doing it all by herself. Plus this very significant album is being released on such a perfect label for that kind of project, Hyperdub. There is something about the choice of sounds, nothing too fancy, and the almost tribal grooves, plus such an original approach to vocal melodies and parts. This is such a brave record without trying to please or satisfy nobody. Besides, it is a whole record, you know, a story, like they used to make for us years ago, a full collage of sound and image and smells. This is an absolutely gorgeous venture my friends, a gift you need to study carefully, and hopefully some will rub off on ya..

 


Last night the moon came

Sunday, June 3rd, 2012

Its funny cause I looked up at the sky last night and saw it was a full moon night. Now, our dear friend AZ has sent us today a Jon Hassell piece called ‘Last night the moon came’. So here you are – coming from the master himself, and for those of you who don’t know some trivia about Jon, here it is in a sentence, plus listen to this wonderful track… .Jon Hassell -”A childhood in Memphis, a classical conservatory education, composition and electronic music study with Stockhausen in Cologne; a passage through the New York minimalist sphere with Terry Riley, Reich, Glass; having a window opened onto the world’s music and a new approach to the trumpet via vocal master Pandit Pran Nath; a questioning and deconstruction of the European dichotomy between classical and popular, sacred and sensual; a pioneer of digital transformation and sampling – all of this led to Fourth World – the unique blend which Jon has described as “worldly music” to underline a more subtle equation at work and to discourage the simplistic labeling of “world,” “jazz,” “classical,” “minimal,” or “ambient”….
