cold summers.


over 2020 all i really listened to was jazz & i got really into fusion. i know this isn't the rarest, but i listened to this a whole lot last summer.

no stress.


this album is so great. smooth jazz with electro elements from the mid 80s. i always spin it when i'm having a rough day & it turns it right around.

sorrel juice.

in my top five favorite albums of all time, not sure why i haven't posted this before. huge huge influence on my music, this is perfect from front to back. if yr into mid 90s lo-fi gritty southern hip hop, then this will be right up yr alley.

one for adderall canyonly.


hey there, hope y'all are staying safe & sane out there. been listening to a lot of music since the start of covid, & have been toying around with the idea of coming back. don't know how frequently i'd be posting, but would like to share some jams & reconnect with some of the folks from yesteryear (s/o flash, walking trees, owl, ghost cap & all of the rest of the pb crew & especially to buruno, reach out sometime amigo!) anyway, here is some jazz fusion from 86 recorded with a synthaxe for the mpcs.

a familiar bell rings from the other side.

don't think of this as a come back, this is just an album i've really been enjoying & i wanted to share it with y'all. jack kevorkian (yeah dr death) made this fucking tight jazz album from 1997 where he played flute & organ. heavy vince guaraldi (if you're not a humongous fan of him then you're doing something wrong) vibes abound. as a matter of fact if i didn't know & someone played this for me i would just think they were some lost charlie brown cues. not my rip, but do we even have to say that anymore now that blogs are dead?

so long & farewell.

no long paragraph about how much of a pleasure this has all been. i'll keep this real short & on brand. this is the final post of spookcity. thank you to everyone who has been here for the ride, catch y'all on the other side amigos.

music for presence.

nice house from the early 90s perfect for when yr two chugs of syrup & four gabapentin deep at midnight.

eleven thousand dreams.

of course everyone knows this one, but i'm clearing out my itunes & posting everything i had in backlog. never bad to revisit this gem.

ascending into nowhere.

i don't know how y'all feel about her, but i'm a big fan of hers, especially 70s/80s era lydia.

descending into space.

hey gang, sorry for not being around very much, it's summer & life has gone left for me. anyway, i'll be moving to portland in the beginning of september, so i'm selling off some of my tapes & vinyl to help fund the move. i'll try to be more active in the next month & a half because after the move there will probably be radio silence for a while. forever forward.

ps this hisaishi joint is real nice, just don't expect any fireworks.

pps buy my stuff here

smoke signals vol VIII.

hey, it's been a minute. just in time for the dead heat of summer here is my latest mix of chopped & screwed ratty europop records & dubious chillout spa comps. meant to be listened to loudly on a porch with yr heads in the clouds. hope everyone is enjoying their summer.

listen here.

ps if y'all want a d/l link just lemme know.

there is a place.

some real lovely early 80's breezy japanese yacht rock to help you get through wednesday.

meet me by the clocktower.

this kikuchi momoko record is fire. has a bunch of folks that have played on records that will probably get reissued at some point soon. everything about this is perfect.

neither more nor less.

i don't see a lot of folks talking about this vangelis album, which is a shame because it's amazing. perfect score for getting high at seven in the morning while enjoying a nice cup of tea.

the whole city between us.

before i run off to work here is some spot on mid 80's jpop featuring a fella from mariah. if that doesn't whet yr appetite enough, then i don't know what will.

the soft dissolve.

dub inflected cold wave from chris & cosey of throbbing gristle released in 85. nuff said.

if you know you know.

mid 80's british boogie that wouldn't be out of place on 4ad. perfect jams to smoke weed to on a rainy afternoon.
