a thousand words.



a canadian weirdbeard lady from the early nineties. pretty uneven album, but there are some really rewarding moments on here. i'm not a fan of the whole "if i make weird sounds & then yell & then hit a snare once, then this is experimental" side of musique, but there are some really nice songs where she just focuses on jazz which reminds me a lil bit of deerhoof if greg saunier was allowed to let it all out. kinda wish she had stayed with that.

ps sad news about tomita.

pps i am now reviewing tapes for cassette gods, so if you want yr stuff up there, get at me.

day at the seaside.



another gem for y'all. a stunning czech folk gem from 1989, her guitar playing is amazing, & her voice is so powerful & haunting. you may recognize her from the very first mix i ever posted here, so here is the full length. enjoy!

twenty nine palms.



aw fam, i'm high as fuck & this is bizarre as fuck so it's a match made in paradise. danielle palardy roger is a weirdbeard from 80's canaduh, & she is a percussionist/composer/improvisor of the highest order. a blender full of all of my favorite things. just needs to be heard to be understood.

ps i have two tapes coming out in a month or two, so keep yr eyes peeled!

we will always be young.



how do i even describe this... if delia derbyshire & elaine radigue decided to make a post classical album with elements of jazz... that doesn't even come close to the majesty of this weird gem. cannot recommend this enough!

ps didn't even recognize, but it's been four years already! how time flies eh?

another monday.



really pleasant french folk record from the late seventies. gets a little too middle earth for me at moments, but still nice. not my rip, so all thanks to the islands.

ps have been wanting to post about this for a minute now, but seriously fuck michael gira. my heart goes out to larkin grimm & for all survivors.

freedom club. ~ smoke signals vol II.



time for another leap into my remixes of murky prog & screwed funk. not as deep as my young persons series, this is meant to be listened to while yr on the dancefloor & yr head is swimming in the clouds.

ps coming up on four years & five hundred posts. forever forward.
