A throwback classic album on this Friday! A series of beautiful exercises by composer CFCF. Take a listen!
Zoning out to Ambalek this morning…
The sound artist Manja Ristić takes you on a fascinating tour of the Korčula Islands in Croatia through field recordings of her sonic encounters. The auditory landscapes created are at times haunting and calming, grating and soothing, cute and harsh. It’s a fascinating listen that will transport you to the islands. Listen below:
A cathartic post-rock track out of Germany is hitting the ears today. Check it out below:
Bopping along to the fun sounds of “soda sickness” today. The simple melodies are perfect for easy listening and drinking soda on the couch after you get home from a long day.
Listening to the Boston-based “It Was A Good Dream” today. Their 2019 album drifts effortlessly through post-rock, electronic breakbeats, soaring sax solos and epic climaxes. Hear it below.
Making my way through the ambitious and moving album, “Everywhere at the end of time” by The Caretaker this weekend. This is a record by ambient musician Leyland James Kirby that is an artistic reflection of the symptoms and progression of Alzheimer’s.
What a journey it is.
Listening to “The Gardens of Bomarzo” by clorinde today. This double album is a great listen from top to bottom.
In the song, “We will either find a way, or make one – Hannibal’s Elephant” we get the answer to the question, what id Big Lazy went on a beach vacation? with it’s twangy guitars. The next track, “Between virtue and vice – The Dragon” reminds me of the opening to “20 Minutes to Save the Human Race” off our latest album, “Horror Songs”. Track 11, “Abandon all thought – The Mouth of Hell”, sounds like something out of a Lord of the Rings movie soundtrack.
My favorites off the record are track 2, “A single feather fell to earth – Pegasus” and 18, “She lay in silence – The Nymph”. What are yours?
Another new single “Plant Thief” off the upcoming @deerhoof album, “Actually, You Can” which is due out October 22. Incredible instrumental break around the 2:00 mark with a killer guitar solo, bass solo and thumping drum beat, actually the whole song is just great.
An all-time classic from a big influence on our band, Kaki King! Listen below:
