    And the occasional Throbbing Gristle live gig off of TG24. Most recently the May 19th 1979 show at the Factory. They use a military listening exercise that was supposed to help soldiers identify weapons by their sound to open up shows from around that time. It's pretty effective at setting the atmosphere.

    "We're Throbbing Gristle...from Dallas, Texas." GPO is such a joker.

    Had a massive urge this weekend to spin all of Discordance Axis' catalog. ah, Grindcore Ninja Commando Team how i miss thee. =(

    Massive Attack - Heligoland (man the opener Pray for Rain [was on the EP too] is kicking my ass)

    and in celebration of new SWANS stuff - Various Failures, Swans are Dead, Soundtracks for the Blind.

    Spoon - Transference - Haven't given it the time it deserves, yet, mostly because I have recently gotten re-obsessed with Girls Can Tell.
    Four Tet - There is Love in You - Yes. Yes. Very Nice.
    Liars - Sisterworld - Less of a riff heavy monster than their self titled record, requires more inspection.
    Raphael Saadiq - The Way I See It - Retro-soul from the former lead singer of Tony Toni Tone a la Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. Fucking awesome.

    ( Drop The Other )

    I heard the Emika mix on Mary Anne Hobbs Experimental and became quite smitten with it. It's up on the BBC player for one more day and there's some radio recordings of it floating around as well. Highly Recommended. Got me to pick up a copy of her EP on Ninja Tune.

    So this week has been
    Emika - Drop The Other EP
    Annette Peacock - My Mamma Never Taught Me To Cook
    Ten and Tracer - You'll Be A Hero Soon (free netlabel glitch IDM)
    A.A. Bondy - When The Devil's Loose
    Fever Ray - Live at Lulea
    Teddy Pendergrass - The first 4 albums (Miss U Teddy)
    The O' Jays - Backstabbers
    DMG$ - Hello World
    Avalanches - Since I Left You
    La Roux - s/t

    DJ Mixes by
    Chrissy Murderbot - Booty Bass Roller Rink Jams
    Redshape - Minimal Techno for MNML SSGS

    Tried to listen to the Massive Attack album and it was like shitting rusty nails. I think I'll pass on that one.

    Picked up some live-radio Elvis Costello tracks(*cough*from Jeff Zero*cough*), some I've heard before, but haven't heard this version of "Pills and Soap" before. Loving it.

    @Tacopunch - Boy howdy. That opening piano breakdown? That's what we call a HOOK.

    What do you think of Fever Ray's Live at Lulea? I was a bit disappointed. It's good, just not super exciting. Sounds like a lower quality version of the Fever Ray album. Now a DVD version...that would be sick. From what i've seen of Fever Ray and the Knife, their live shows look pretty damn cool.

    This week we have a brilliant wide ranging mix from the curator of hotflush recordings - Scuba.

    Amazing setlist.

    toumani diabate – bafoulabe
    orbital - i wish i had duck feet
    fleetwood mac - brown eyes
    nine inch nails – piggy
    prince - computer blue
    joy division – disorder
    pet shop boys - i want to wake up
    pete lazonby - sacred cycles
    plastikman – glob
    aphex twin – tha
    autechre – bike
    ali farka toure - allah uya
    photek – conciousness
    roni size - change my life
    shimon & andy c – quest
    roots manuva – inna
    aaliyah - rock the boat
    wookie – battle

    Also listening to various labels I loved when I was younger and rediscovering their greatness, like:

    Hymen Records
    Sozialistischer Plattenbau
    Ad Noiseam
    Shockout (Shockout!!!)

    Now banging my head to Enduser, Vex'd and Submerged. Feeling like I might get back to Nasenbluten pretty soon. Sad that Drop the Lime doesn't make breakcore anymore. Very happy about being reminded how great Merzbow's ''Oersted'' is.

    Overdose, I guess.

    Just go and get the latest one. I´ve been listening to in depth more today and it really seems to have done a job on my aural pleasure centres...

    Also i´ve been listening to the wonders of Robedoor - Raiders. It´s lovely and growling, like hooking up a couple of bears to some amplifiers...
    On top of that i´ve discovered noise band Ajilvsga and their albums The Harvest & Crossed Bones. The 1st album sounds a bit like Bird of the Abyss, but by the second album, they mutat in a monolithic slab of droney black metal noise...

    @ The_Toxo_Zombie it sounds like the Fever Ray show did. More guitars, live vocal processing. There were a lot of cameras filming the Chicago show so I wouldn't be surprised if a dvd shows up.

    @ales lynn put a enduser set

    This week;

    Pulled Apart By Horses - Traxxx. Saw this lot with Glassjaw the other day, this ep lives up to their always amazing live show.
    Shapes - Get Your Learn On/The Pasture, The Oil. This lot were also with Glassjaw, they work much better live than they do on cd. The cds are still very good, however it's the old story. Plus the first time I saw them they pretty much destroyed a club/pub in manchester, so I may be a little biased with my judgement.
    Four Tet - There Is Love In You. This, for me, is probably the best Four Tet album, which is odd considering I've only had it two days.
    Vivian Girls - Vivian Girls.
    Sufajan Stevens - Seven Swans/Illinoise.
    Fucked Up - Couple Tracks. Great compilation. It's nice to have some of these tracks on cd finally.

    @brycemidas, the new one isn't actually as good as 2007's This Bliss, in my opinion. i'm super bummed about the song with guest vocals, and there are a few others that seem relatively sour compared to the brilliance of This Bliss.
