beyond the sunrise.

not my first time posting yoshi wada here. this album from 82 is utterly breathtaking, two long tracks to get lost in & forget about yr surroundings if for just a little bit.

bridge of leaves.

amongst the maestros, marchetti never gets his fair due, which is a shame because he's a strong composer with an impressive body of work. really lovely music perfect for a soundtrack to a lazy weekend.

ps just realized it's been six years now. pretty wild.

friday feelings.

throwing up this stone cold soul jazz classic from 75 up before i have to go into my soul crushing job. this has been getting a lot of play around these parts lately.

i don't want to be yr shadow.

been going through miyazaki lately (for what feels like the umpteenth time but there are always details to pick up along the way), got to thinking about how amazing the scores are, got to hunting down more work by ole joe hisaishi & stumbled across this gem. what a beautiful soundtrack, & i thought i'd like to share it with y'all. the main theme has light shades of moments in love (at least to these ears), & the whole thing is really just so very lovely. hope y'all enjoy!

standing on top of a mountain.

march of the spirits.

one of my all time favorite tapes, i jam this on the reg. ecstatic gems from my man thomas mapfumo who fled zimbabwe in the late 90's due to the political climate. i don't wanna ramble on too much, but such an inspiring story which you can read more about here. i don't even think i can do this one justice, it's just something you have to hear for yrself.

the lost world.

hailing from 67, gabor szabo would never again match this perfect synthesis of sitars, psyche folk, jazz & latin tinged drumming which is a wonderful way to start a sunday morning (or wind down for those non us folks :).

good morning, midnight.

what a lovely album. this was made in the mid nineties for a japanese radio station which beamed through satellites ethereal audio harmony twenty four hours a day. i think y'all will enjoy it.

ps real torn up over johann johannsson, what a beautiful body of work to be left behind. godspeed good sir.

um, circles and squares.

a lovely number from this fella. i know this isn't the deepest gem, but is a nice warm up run to get back into the swing of things around these parts. also, i wanted to post sade's diamond life or gza's liquid swords but i don't think i'm ready for this blog to get shut down just yet. maybe one day.

welcome home.

since people have been going crazy over midori takada (& rightfully so) lemme share one of my favs from her. sorry for the shitty quality cover, it's the best i could find with a five second search.

smoke signals vol VII.

hey there! i have a new tape coming out tomorrow, so in anticipation of that, here is my newest smoke signals, a screwed mix of library, post punk, brasilian groove, minimal techno, & new age. i think it goes awfully well with the gray weather we have been having lately.

listen here.
