All posts for the month June, 2015

At times, I am in awe of the pure quantity of great music out there. If only I didn’t have other things to do like laundry or eating. I would stare all day at records and listen to artists with double f last names.

Hello, internet stranger! Today is the first day of my new career, which is about close to “dream job” as I can get while working for somebody else. And while I realize I’m just a disembodied voice posting songs on this little blog, I thought you still might like to know I’m quite excited.
To celebrate, I think it’s a great time to share this wonderful project by the French composer Chassol. He created his own audio/video travelogue featuring footage he captured while visiting the Caribbean island of Martinique and piano tracks he overdubbed in studio. The whole thing’s far more enjoyable to watch than it is to explain, so how about you just click play on that there Youtube video I attached to this post?
Of course, the entire thing is better than the sum of it’s parts, so I recommend picking up the DVD from Tricatel.

The playlist for last night’s slog of a radio show. I nearly ran through all of my pulled material, but made it through.

Holy fuck I love this. Rad DIY trio from London.

This is an odd one for Paper Bag Records. But good on them. This is beautifully weird. They are obviously embracing the weirdness with the whole “Hey, mother death” thing.

“Instrumental 4” from an album titled Instrumentals 2015. There shouldn’t be much confusion about what to expect from the new Flying Saucer Attack LP.

La Luz has a new album coming out in August. It’s produced by Ty Segall which seems like a great match. Based on this single, I’d say so indeed. They are touring too. But alas, it appears Pittsburgh is not making the cut. I hate that.
