    Bladerunner Soundtrack - The Esper Edition (2007 5-Disc Edition)


    End Titles:

    It's a rare, bootleg edition of the Bladerunner OST with all of the incidcental music included, plus some key speeches from the film, obscure takes of the main themes... all mastered from tape. Oh my deity, it is fantastic. I have a link to a .flac copy online, but pretty sure it's not cool to post filesharing links on the forum... get at me via email, I'll forward the link - it took me a fair bit of digging to get it.

    @ Texture - I have that ESPER edition, and my oh my is it good. For walking around cities at night, natch.

    Here's a terrific cover of Love Will Tear Us Apart which I heard on the In Memory of John Peel podcast.

    Been looping this album all day and will be purchasing when I get home.
    Music From Saharan Cellphones

    Music from Saharan cellphones is a compilation of music collected from memory cards of cellular phones in the Saharan desert.

    In much of West Africa, cellphones are are used as all purpose multimedia devices. In lieu of personal computers and high speed internet, the knockoff cellphones house portable music collections, playback songs on tinny built in speakers, and swap files in a very literal peer to peer Bluetooth wireless transfer.

    The songs chosen for the compilation were some of the highlights -- music that is immensely popular on the unofficial mp3/cellphone network from Abidjan to Bamako to Algiers, but have limited or no commercial release. They're also songs that tend towards this new world of self production -- Fruity Loops, home studios, synthesizers, and Autotune.

    In 2010, various versions of saharan cellphone music were released on cassette. Many of the songs were unlabeled, giving no insight to their mysterious origins. In the past year, the artists have been tracked down to collaborate on a commercial release. As such, 60% of the proceeds go directly to the artists.

    Oh, good call sir. I heard Daughter on NPR's All Songs the other day and was pretty impressed.

    My contribution is Holy Other - half a dozen free downloads up for grabs on their page.

    Am currently enjoying the stink out of "This May Be The Reason Why The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing Cannot Be Killed By Conventional Weapons" which, apart from the rather good title is very funny, cockney steampunk-y stuff. With metal. Case in point, a ditty about meeting Cthulhu while on a beano to Margate

    New single from Squarepusher's upcoming album. Sounds promising.

    Whoa... THIS:

    Very excited for this project. Crescent Moon being one of my favorite rappers, and these French guys producing this really seem to strike a chord with me musically. And, awesome video to go with it to boot. The project is called "Numbers Not Names", and is coming out supposedly sometime this month. At least in France it is.


    Polica's "Give You The Ghost"

    Bowerbirds - The Clearing

    This being my favourite track so far:

    This Year

    ETA: My close-second that's on repeat over breakfasts:

    Walk The Furrows

    I loved their first album then lost touch with what they were up to so haven't even heard their albums in between but this album - to me and oh so very subjectively - feels compositionally layered to a very mature degree. Like the difference between the simple person you were at 20 by comparison to the layers, difficulty, and wonder you have 6 years later. [I said subjectively...]

    I've just checked and it's been 5 years since their first album so it chimes. I'd recommend taking 2-hour-long walks and letting the album sitting somewhere in the middle.
