walking amongst the trees pt.2.

this post is for my dear friend mike. hope yr doing well amigo. miss ya pal.

bangkok by night.

a very lovely collection of audio curios & knick knacks from the fine label that brought you fingerbobs, the david cain record, & the reissue of the wickerman soundtrack. a veritable grab bag of oddities that is sure to please even the most distinguished of ears.

ps this blog is already over a year old & with over 250 posts! pretty exciting for something i thought i would do for a few months... hahahaha.

pps re-upped ballake sissoko. will get mehr pouya back up & running tomorrow!

another oldie but goodie. one of my more favorite things that finders keepers put out.

city in flames.

absolutely gorgeous dreamy library style drum tracks recorded by a bunch of high school girls with a median age of 14 back in the late seventies. if you have any interest in exotica, library as played by umiliani, or just music you could play at a party while imbibing libations & sitting amongst the clouds, then this is right up yr alley amigos!

on a road to nowhere.

another classique in our circles, but how are you ever going to go wrong with the fucking raaja?

where will we be tomorrow?

i guess this is one of the records that gave birth to the "hauntological" sound? this reminds me of what would be playing at stone henge five hundred years ago while witches sacrificed villagers. & it was made to be an interpretive dance record for kids... again, what the fuck england? while morgan freeman was blowing kids away with his impeccable singing voice & hilarious jokes on the electric company, you were scaring the shit out of yr kids. great job!!!

yes i am a long way from home.

another post in my what the fuck were the british smoking series...

this show i believe was on for only one season. i have only been able to watch it on youtube, but it is a super diy lo-fi about a bearded hippie who looks scary as fuck making his hands into shapes of animals. it's pretty inventive, as they make the animals with little paper heads. the album stands alone as a very lovely oddity with folky songs regarding the different characters, but it makes so much more sense when you watch it. check it out for a nice afternoon listen that will assuredly put a smile on yr face.

love without sound.

so i had to share this because this blew my mind completely wide open. a gorgeously lush french psych record from 1971 with face melting guitar leads & washed out wahs & a pseudo japanese concept of uniting the west with the east running through it. seriously so so so good, i listen to the album at least once or twice the entire way through every day & find new things every time to enjoy about it. my favorite jam is aisere i love you fershure. you'll see, you really will.

walking amongst the trees.

for a good friend, sorry for the lack of desert posts amigo. this will make up for it! seriously jamming psych shit here. will blow yr mind. from the insane geetar leads to the ecstatic yelps in the background, this is a stunner.

library of solomon.

a classique of kosmische synth vision quests. grosskopf played in cosmic jokers, ash ra tempel, & with klaus schulze, but you already knew that right? & yes, this is a 320 of the reissue, without the second disc because i don't really care for the "remixes" as they are all basically garbage compared to the beauty of the original album.

radiant city.

what the fuck? this is the first in my "what kind of drugs were the british on during the seventies?" posts that will be coming this week. this soundtrack is a collection of old/new folk songs sung by the characters from the film, & an eerie creepiness pervades the entire thing. i really enjoyed this, & i'm sure y'all will as well.

status narcissism.

another classique amongst the circle, but for those who might not have grabbed this when it first hit the streets.

minimal mali blues with mariem hassan's emotive singing on top. pretty darn good if you ask me.

song of the plasticator.

some bleepy bloopy kosmische library jams from parry in the late seventies to mid eighties. one of my favorite things ever. i swear i heard these cues growing up as a kid in the eighties, anyway, just get this. mind blowingly good!

nine gifts of healing.

the fuckin' raaja bringing the goddamn heat with this one! seriously one of the best & most prolific composers of all time, this cat is pure fyre.

oslo skyline.

so a break from mali blues into the more experimental end of things. all of these grm reissues have been amazing, but this is one of my favorites. experimental, but not quite musique concrète, this ranks up there with parmegiani & malec as favorite things to be put out again. it's in the moments of hushed silence that i find the most beauty.

rambo zambo.

i know y'all are lyke gawd moar muzak from mali?! of course my babies, more music from my favorite region in africa. it's what soothes my weary soul after a long day of mind numbing work, & a beautiful way to start my day off with the sun shining on my face & a cup of coffee in my hand. enjoy y'all!

Saturday, May 4, 2013

another beautiful day in the neighborhood.

some more beautiful mali blooze to start yr weekend off right, or in my case, my tuesday. catch y'all on the flip amigos!

cross my palm with silver.

so i ran across this in my local library & was amazed! this was put together by the guy who recommended me that osmond's record. old dusty recordings of arcane 78's. ripped & tagged by yrs truly. enjoy while i go get more knackered!

pt. 1  //  pt.2

i'm back sleeping, or fucking, or something.

philip glass made an opera about kepler that sounds like it was recorded for a gulag circa 1948. i'm not a fan of operas in general, but this one is absolutely stunning.

pt. 1  //  pt. 2

ghost ghat trespass.

i know what yr thinking... really the fucking osmonds man? but that's where yr wrong amigos, dead wrong. this record is a really groovin' hard rock record, like a campy t rex. especially the title song. holy shit so fucking good. even the ballads aren't half bad. just trust me on this one, you won't be disappointed!
