    What're you listening to?

    New week's releases are up at http://www.piccadillyrecords.com on Monday morning - just choose a genre from left and click "magic mix" to stream excerpts from the new releases.

    I usually swing by Largehearted Boy's Try It Before You Buy It posts on Tuesday mornings, too -- not least because I like to glance at the album covers of what I'm hearing.

    Commence playlist speakage.

    Warren's been the one finding whatever little bit of new music worth listening to, lately, but he may be too busy today to fill my weekly "Probation" folder in iTunes (I consider all new music noise until proven innocent) -- so links and descrips if you got 'em, yeah?

    Currently loving

    Worriedaboutsatan Very Burial-esque (which is a comparison they probably hate by now). Basically, another step forward in Dubstep.

    Cold Cave Hardcore guy does Electro.

    @Joe.Distort

    I never cared much for Converge but the new stuff really does sound amazing. Thanks for the heads up.

    COLD CAVE may or may not be involved in the new TAYLOR BOW lp thats supposed to be coming out soon on YOUTH ATTACK...but all of those dudes are so "mysterious" that no one knows

    i'm also doing the jazz thing at the moment.

    Evan Zipryn's Animal Act is a perennial favourite that gets dusted off now and again.

    Taphead have you heard Elvin Jones - New Agenda. i found it for dl here if you're interested in checking it out. I'd never heard his non coltrane stuff before and it's pretty good. of the ones listed at that site this is my favourite.

    also been listening to Alles Weider Offen by Einsturzende Neubauten a lot this week cause i love em and i think this is probably the album they were born to make.

    @ian holloway

    Ooooh, thanks for the link. I hope it's still up once I get someplace with a bit more robust a net connection.

    Alles Wieder Offen is also very very VERY good, and absolutely brilliant live.

    i'm still waiting to catch EN live. Hopefully someday.

    i've managed to catch Faust (my favourite band) live twice in the last couple of years which only leaves EN on my wishlist of people to see live.

    also been listening to a lot of William Basinski's disintegration loops this week and the new album from Justin Broadrick's Final (called Reading All The Right Signals Wrong) is really rather wonderful.

    lots of psychadelic solipsistic cock-rock. Monster Magnet: Spine of God, Superjudge, Dopes to Infinity.

    Also, Conway Twitty for the cool summer evenings.

    I've found that there is so much new music, music I haven't heard out there, that its night impossible to keep up with it all. I'll let the Pandora run on something nebulous until I stumble across a few jems, and my friends always have 30 new bands to catch every week that I don't know where they find the time to actually listen to these bands. Sometimes I think people just like to collect an armada of band-names to throw out when discussing new music. All this music is a good thing, But I find it hard to zero in on something and really absorb it into my chemical being. Over the last couple years, the only bands that I stumbled upon that stuck with me were Devendra Banhart and The Six Organs of Admittance.

    @nigredo

    Headhunters is a winner. Have you heard Survival of the Fittest? Recorded after Herbie, but still very impressive, and a lot less noodly than some moments on Headhunters. Maupin burns on the bass clarinet.

    Yup, got it and love it. It doesn't get better than God Made me Funky. Straight Through the Gate was a pretty disappointing follow up though.

    Have you heard Thrust, the album he made with them after Headhunters? Awesome stuff.

    Oh my, yes. Spank-A-Lee is a favourite.

    God Make Me Funky is one of those songs that I regularly spin when DJ'ing. It's always nice to see people keep on dancing even when Maupin starts stepping out.

    Have you heard Maupin's personal albums like Jewel in the Lotus or Moonscapes? Some good stuff there.

    After the Mwandishi albums, almost every member of the band released personal albums that were in a similar vein and well worth checking out: Buster Williams (Pinnacle), Maupin (Jewel in the Lotus), Julian Priester (Love, Love), Eddie Henderson (Realization).
