    it's always a good time for 'Out to Lunch'

    currently rotating between several releases on the always fabulous Digitalis Industries label

    Concern - Truth & Distance
    Taiga Remains - Wax Canopy
    Social Junk - Born Into It
    and the brilliantly named
    Darwin's Bitch - Ore

    the stuff i've been getting from Digitalis lately has been a kinda mix of free-folk and a flowing form of improv-americana but these four are all more interested in the almighty drone. all 4 are pretty listenable but i've not really got totally into them yet.

    also have been digging out some old faves

    Songs Ohia - The Lioness (this is the only album of his that i ever liked)
    and
    Violent Femmes first album (cause i'll always love it)

    and last but not least Walking Through Fireflies by Whitechapeler Ian Holloway. Ianthis stuff is great and has a lovely eerie ambient quality. Was listening to it this morning and thinking that if tracks 2 and 4 was used for the remake of "survivors". it would probably make it about 120% scarier to watch. it can be downloaded here for thos who donĀ“t know already. Do it!!!

    Been listening to the new MOTOR album, Metal Machine. It's great techno for people who like a more minimal, noisy approach.



    Bonus points for being distributed by record lables called Dim Mak and ShitKatapult

    Ahhh, finally. Been so bored I've been keeping a list of everything I've listened to:

    The Dear Hunter- Act 3: Life and Death
    Pig- Sinsation
    Pigface- Easy Listening for Difficult Fuckheads
    a Secret Policemen's Ball- Picking Up Things You Can't Even See
    Elvis Costello- Secret, Profane and Sugarcane (I'd actually been dragging my feet on this. Loved it way more than Momofuku.)
    Peeping Tom- s/t
    Tub Ring- The Great Filter
    Skinny Puppy- Mythmaker
    Nellie McKay- Pretty Little Head
    Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse- Dark Night of the Soul
    Faith No More- Angel Dust
    Allofher Twitch- demos for his(my boyfriend's) upcoming EP. I even got to listen to a almost-final mix of one. I'm really quite proud of him.
  5.  (6603.14)
    Man Man
    Latitudes

    this video:


    and this bit of genius:
    http://vimeo.com/5732745

    also been busy trying to create some weird new instruments out of found materials, so am also listening to a lot of oddly tuned wires and the occasional snap and echoes of myself cursing the gods.
  6.  (6603.15)
    Listening to nothing but The Fall. Lots of Fall.

    Oh , and Delicatessen's Hustle into bed , a long-forgotten arty band from the Britpop era.

    &
    @Taphead - thank you both for your kind words. i'm glad you enjoyed the music. there is a higher bitrate (320kbps) version of the album now uploaded which can be got here.

    @offtandiscord - that Stephen Scott piece is real nice.

    and

    @Kernowdrunk - in a world of strange coincidences i am currently listening to Skin Touching Water by Delicatessen.
  8.  (6603.18)
    @Ian Holloway - Thanks for the higher bitrate version. Downloading and will listen to as soon as I've finished with The Guardian Science Podcast.

    I just found a burned copy of the Tears For Fears album that Orzabal did by himself, "Raoul and the Kings of Spain," and I got sucked into it again. The last time this happened, I didn't listen to anything else for about three weeks. The simplicity of the melodies and the atmosphere of it just kick my ass over and over. I originally owned a copy of it, but my mom took it, and so a buddy burned me a copy a while back, and then I went to mostly digital (except when I'm on a vinyl binge) and never put it on my mp3 player(s). If you ever dug the stuff they did in the eighties but stopped listening to them, then check this album out. And then check out the record they did a couple years ago when they got back together, "Everybody Loves a Happy Ending," which is also very cool.

    @Ginja - you're welcome.

    has anyone heard the new Dinosaur Jr album Farm. if you were a fan back in the day then it's really worth giving it a listen. i don't really listen to much straight rock stuff these days but this things not been far from my seedee player for a month now.
