    @icelandbob - What's the Beak> record like? Is it obviously a Portishead \ Massive Attack crossover or is it it's own thing?
  1.  (7692.22)

    It´s pure full on krautrock with a side order of joy division style post punk. Apparently compared to Portishead (PAINFULLY long gestation and recording periods), this took only a couple of weeks to record and mix. It´s a lot looser that portishead.

    Best tracks are the opener "Blackwell" and "Blagdon lake"
  2.  (7692.23)
    Anthony Moore "Jam Jem Jim Jom Jum" (a charmingly imperfect, loose and eccentric minimalist piece from 1971)
  3.  (7692.24)
    And now

    Robert Ashley "In Sara, Menken, Christ and Beethoven there were men and women" - a classic voice and electronics piece from early 70's.

    @hmobius: Sorry it took so long to get back to you over the Four Tet, had a long weekend. I love it. More than once i found msyelf dancing around my apartment to it, whether cooking, cleaning or just..dancing. The first track, Angel Echoes, gives you such a feeling of clarity that it's like opening the door from a warm house into a cold morning.

    FF 7 theme music remixed with modern rap. The MOP track is pretty glorious.

    Gil Scott-Heron's "I'm New Here" is a pretty decent album going from my one listen thus far.
    Now I am listening to the fantastic Crucifucks album, "Our Will Be Done", which comprises their first two albums. The soundbites at the beginning of many songs are particularly noteworthy. They are an acquired taste, however, given the unique whine of the vocalist, Doc Corbin Dart.

    I´m also listening to Moon Wiring Club´s Asda Mixtape form the Wire. It´s certainly unsettleing to listen to as he seems to have directly Brainhacked my TV memories from the 80´s. From the mid-80´s version of the "Tomorrows World" theme tune, to What i´m sure was the basis to the theme tune to "the bill"
    And i definitely remember ITV playing La Serenissima by Rondo Veneziano several times throughout my childhood as a transmission filler....

    @Infomancer: Slightly off-topic, but I see you're listening to the American Hardcore soundtrack. Have you seen the film? If so, is it any good? Or more to the point, do you know if it's like the book? I love the book, but haven't seen the film.

    Just listened: Alice in Chains "Black Gives Way to Blue" and Arch Enemy's "Stigmata". Next up, Elliott Smith's "New Moon".

    The film is good, definitely worth seeing. It's like the book in that there are a lot of different people giving their perspective on the scenes, lots of interviews and old footage and photos. They kind of move through the scene chronologically, explaining the differences between the scenes in different cities. Great interviews with people like MacKaye, Rollins, HR, etc.

    Killing Joke - Killing Joke (2003) Rob from Battlefields turned me on to this record, pissed off old dudes in the new millennium. Kind of like ol' Warren.
    Moonstone Continuum - Nr:4;3.1-3 -- This is a crazy cult/band from Minneapolis featuring Jon from Knife World who is, perhaps, the reincarnation of Jimi Hendrix. Do yourself a favor and go listen to "Erotic Banquet".
    LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver
    Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears - Tell 'em What Your Name Is
    Liars - Sisterworld
    and some new, unmixed tracks from my old band, THEMES

    Thanks, I will definitely have to check it out.

    Currently listening to Grand Analog's "Calligraffiti". Really good album from the Canadian hip-hop band.

    AMERICAN HARDCORE is alright, it focuses WAY too much on bad brains. for a beginning look into USHC it is worth seeing but it leaves out TONS. (sadly, VOID only gets a brief lil showing :( )

    DESPISE YOU-westside horizons lp
    HATRED SURGE-servant 7" (ugh...this is actually some pretty weak material from my favorite fast band.)
    THE FALL-peel sessions 12"
