    Had the week off, found myself spending all my time reading Neal Stephenson's Anathem. This morning I discovered that it had a soundtrack.

    Lolet - music from the world of Anathem is a collection of weird experimental vocal and clapping music with great variation. From the context and the titles, it seems it's based on mathematical concepts - like "Approximating pi" and "Proof - using finite projective geometry". The Anathem world features monastic orders of scientists, living and working in isolation in 10, 100 and 1000-year cycles. Can't google up any details, though; even the composer's website has just a couple of paragraphs.

    Now: the Only Mountain album by Take, and I dug up Yoseph by Luke Vibert again.
    I've also been listening to the Emmanuelle soundtrack for good measure.

    I like how people are commenting that "It's not a punk record at all!" No shit, retards, neither was their last record


    hahaha, seriously.

    which, considering it took me four edits to get a viable link on the page, is incredibly appropriate.

    It's closer to Dowse Anemone... and Blue...

    Almost no guitars, very abstract and ambient sounding.

    Men as Trees Walking.

    It was recommended on the brass goggles forum as very raw and unusual, and I'm thinking that its perfect for belly dancing, at least for rank beginner me who needs slower music ^_^

    Listen in here...

    As the name implies they're a little on the religious side, but that's never stopped my enjoying good music before.

    Edit: as I managed to insert my link as an image.

    How the FUCK did it take me this long to get into My Brightest Diamond?

    Jesus, it's like this band was tailor made for me.

    I just discovered My Brightest Diamond, myself. And only through a CD of remixes that wandered into the radio station. Like what I've heard. I don't really know that they sound like in original form. But I can kinda reverse-engineer that from the remixes...

    Christian Prosser - Drumlesson Zwei (And at this moment a track that appears to be a Jean Michel Jarre cover tune)

    @ Nick Donald.
    He died last week, i think it was the 20th after having been in a coma for a month or so due to cancer.
    Sad day for hip-hop but at least it was not Premier which would have imho been a far greater tragedy.

    @KidAnarchy - a real pity.

    @Internaut - If you're liking the "Meet the Eels" compilation, it's well worth your time to check out all of their albums. (unless you already have) I've not had a chance to give the new album "End Times" a proper listen, but I like what I've heard so far.
