a couple of things boss.

1) ron geesin's electrosound is a fantastic library voyage through musique concrète cues. dip yr toes in.

2) the inimitable, phenomenal & all around dream boat mark whitby over at unwashed territories is also a dj at dandelion radio. he is playing side a from my newest tape, which you can stream here . i'm pretty sure his show plays a few times a week, go there & support good dudes playing independent music! you can download my latest here. thanks!

Ivory heavens

Hey amigos. I put a good effort on my first post of the year to be special, hence the delay. And as jefe has been presenting us with such good music stuffs, I was able to do it at a calm pace.

Many people gladly have been introduced to Ethiopian music, directly or indirectly, by Jim Jarmusch's Broken Flowers, while restricted, however, to the Ethio-jazz legends, like Mulatu Astatke and Mahmoud Ahmed -- the Éthiopiques collection has about 20 volumes, still counting. And while have listened only a couple of them, I figure this one is probably one of the most surprising.

Before Tsegué-Maryam (emahoy is "nun" for Amharic), only Monk was able to keep me hooked on (non-classical) solo piano pieces. They both bear, IMO, a rare talent for adding that extra colour between the black and white keys. A rather pleasant way to start the year, enjoy!

ps. If you please, contribute to the Emahoy Tsege Mariam Music Foundation.

moon nightclub.

weirdo lo-fi outsider minimal electronic reichian jazzy funk rock. yep, a sentence of random words that somewhat accurately puts a finger in the general direction of how insanely good this is.
