    I read a review of James Blake somewhere that referred to him calling his music "R&B Concréte" which immediately drew me to it.

    Also, does it sound to you guys like he is using a sample from "Are You That Somebody" by Aaliyah in the title track?

    Today:
    Miles Davis - L'Asenceur a l'Echafaud
    Police - Outlandos d'Amour
    Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma

    I've been in love with this piece by Ryuichi Sakamoto. Beautiful piano composition.

    Strangely listening to old Underworld albums and random El-P records. El-P being strange as I find the music more akin to set pieces than melodies, a stage upon which his opinions run riot. So many of the rappers amongst my vinyl are poets, yet El-P's vocal elegance is more akin to a commanding stand up comic than a lyrical street voyeur. Then again, I'm just a sucker for lines like "I found love on a prison ship".

  7.  (8825.52)

    The Offspring - Ignition
    Killing Joke - Extremities, Dirt and Various Repressed Emotions
    NOFX - Punk in Drublic
    Green Day - 21st Century Breakdown (which is much better when you realise that every song is indeed a reference to other songs in the Big Rock Back Catalogue - currently trying to nail each reference)
    Black Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

    Today is a good day with musically old friends.

    I've be going through a strange "A" phase, don't know why...maybe my doctor can help!

    Listening right now to:

    Amon Tobin- Monthly Joints (Just wish it was more than 10 tracks!)

    Was Listening to:

    Arcade Fire- The Suburbs (I can't put my finger on this one, not as epic as Neon Bible...but still awesome!)
    Astrowind- Kurland (I need a Russian synthesizer now!)
    Autechre- Tri Repetae (One of favs, always playing Eutow!)
    Amorphous Androgynous-Tales of Ephidrina (FSOL...after all these years I still love ya!)
    Abre Ojos- Elements (Aussie synth drones from Melbourne, awesome soundscapes!)
