Stricken with a bad back at the moment so not had much time to do much other than listen to stuff – of note over the last few days are:
- Witch Hats – Pleasure Syndrome – nice garage sound from Melbourne…..
- The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation – Egor – immense slabs of cinematic wonderment – it’s jazz Jim but not as we know it…….
- Royal Baths – Better Luck Next Life – from Brooklyn – great sound – moody twangy feel – a strange confection of VU and garage
- Buildings – Melt, Cry, Sleep – noisy and most enjoyable….don’t play it to your granny, unless she was a Jesus Lizard fan
- Vei – EP (released by Baptists and Bootleggers) – exquisite sonic manipulation by Mr Dean who appears to be exploring new avenues and doing it very well indeed….both reflective, ambient and challenging.
- Bacchanal Party – You Can Be As Orange As You Look – a marvellous mix of a broad Scots vocal and crisp guitaring – great tunes
