hey, it's been a while. hurt my arm at work so i've been outta commission for a while now. anyway, to relieve some of the boredom, i made this screwed mix of tangerine dream's dead solid perfect, one of their lesser known gems. i found that when i was screwing it took on more of an october feel, more in line with umberto/carpenter/simonetti/as much as i hate to say it, a stranger things kinda vibe. anyway, i hope y'all enjoy & are having a great weekend!
ps will try to be a lil bit more active over here, but we'll see.
my latest tape just came out today via magical garage taste, who is absolutely one of the nicest & hardworkin fellers out there. this album deals with the loss of freedom, & is inspired by nagamatzu, sauce twinz, bobby turman & sandwell district. the title comes from roberto bolano talking about pushing forward as a new vanguard of culture. it's dark but is maybe my most accessible work yet. anyway, it also comes with a cd-r of the latest smoke signals mix
you can purchase the tape or download for nyp here
i have posted about this lady before here, & it's more of the mesmerizing & enchanting jams here.
ps not to get overly political, but while listening to dead kennedys i thought it was funny that a song that was written almost forty years ago is still fucking applicable in my home state. also, kinda pumped about trump being in office soon. all of the best punk records were made under reagan, & we all know what a fucking scumbag that prick was. here is to the downfall of america. see ya at the mixer.
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.
hey there! i just had two tapes come out today. the first a split with my good friend al, deep ambient dreaming on that one. the second is a chopped&screwed hip hop tape compiling some of my favorites off of my old mixtapes i put out years ago, plus a few new ones. hope y'all are enjoying spring!
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!
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.
just look at that cover. i'm kinda high right now, & this sounds amazing. imma leave the floor open for my japanese counterpart to throw in his two cents on gagaku. for the spelunkers, see ya on the descent.
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?
