    @antistigma + sneak046

    Cheers for all the recommendations! That should keep my ears busy for a while. I recognise a few of them, thanks to a hip-hop obsessed flatmate I had a few years ago. Jedi Mind Tricks and Nonphixion in particular I remember as being brilliant. Here are a couple of tracks I've come across in my own tentative forays into the genre:

    Bams - Please, Tends Loreille (from The World According to RZA)



    Hilltop Hoods - What a Great Night Restrung (from The Hard Road: Restrung)



    I love the Hilltop Hoods one in particular, possibly because they're from Australia and so write songs about getting pissed with your mates instead of songs about shooting people. Which is always nice. If anyone's interested, The Hard Road is generally better than The Hard Road: Restrung, but What a Great Night and Recapturing the Vibe take well to the orchestral treatment.

    edit: edited to fix links

    @antistigma That is one heck of a list there. Good call.

    @Nil If you want some free UK-based hip-hop in the same vein as antistigma's list, I'd be honoured if you'd check out my netlabel. We're all non-pro rappers / producers, totally non-profit... this is how we spend our free time. Hope you enjoy. :D

    I keep going back to Frenchbloke's mix 'The Re-Education of CartelMike'. It's just so damn good, loads of early/rare industrial/EBM/electropunk tracks - Fad Gadget, Cabaret Voltaire, Soft Cel, Yello - and that's just the ones I had heard of... It's "Optimo'd out it's nut" as my girlfriend put it... 4 hours long too, goddamn...

    @antistigma that is a good list but personally my favourite aesop rock stuff is the earlier stuff ie. Apple Seed,Music For Earthworms and Float.
    I find from labour days he tends to use the same flow a bit too much,im talking the gravelly drawl.
    Anyway I have been listening to Das Racist,Girl Unit,Mosca,DarkStar and a Moombahton mixtape off the maddecent blog...

    listening to the following today

    Ga'an - Ga'an: Band from Chocago that felt they were Goblin/Magma/Popol Vuh in a previous life. Album can be downloaded for free here.

    VA - The Wire tapper Vol. 24: I've only listened to this a couple of times so haven't properly disseminated it. Plan to do so this weekend.

    Tiger! Shit! Tiger! Tiger! - WHISPERS EP: This was the coolest band name i heard yesterday, so i had to try them out. Italian 90's Indie alt-rock. Sounds like a quite a few local bands. No great shakes but still pretty rocking.....

    was just introduced to the Doppelschall and The Gym label. I'm listening to their first podcast, curated by Emily Thomey. Lovely mix of 60s jazz, chill hip hop, soft house, ethno-not-European-but-curated-by-Germanic-DJs stuff. I love that their art director is mangling Tom of Finland for their 12" sleeves and general label identity.

    faiza left HATRED SURGE, started new band MINDLESS. demo is 7 songs of face smashing.pretty great!

    have just got hold of the new 3cd set (called 'Re-Conditioned') of 4 Peel Sessions, B-Sides & early 10" EPs (which i already owned) from late 90s Exeter post rock band Appliance. These guys were an anomally in post-rock circles drawing wayt more on Neu than their compatriots. by the time they split their music was pretty lame but the early music is fantastic.
    this one is from their debut album 'Manual' (which came out just after the EPs)

    If this becomes a pop hit I might stab my ears out, but it's really fun for right now.

    I just heard Com Truise, I like it. I think it was in one of these thread a while back. It's working a lot better for me than any of the other chill-wave (bletch) acts. I think the music has an actual sadness and melancholy to it rather than purely relying on nostalgia. Terrible name though. This is my favorite song so far.

    PS. I hate sound cloud comments. It's worse than youtube!

    False Jesii pt 2 is ooooonnnnne of my favorite songs. I missed seeing the record release party for that because I was in the hospital with a septic case of pylonephritis. Still pissed. Pun intended.

    Also, that video is hilarious.
