  1. Gui Boratto - Chromophobia -- some minimal techno on Kompakt. --Geoff
  2. Palancar - Live In Studio 2017-2019 -- a massive 18-track, 11+ hour release of studio improvisation sessions on youtube and radio. Sometimes floaty, sometimes with sequencers, sometimes a bit musique concrète. Kinda reminds me of a collection of long-lost Fax label albums, with similarities to the 2350 Broadway, From Within, and Dreamfish series. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp (note that the download is almost 7GB in size). --Geoff
  3. Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks - Real Emotional Trash -- from the "ermahgerd I hasn't played this soooo long" pile. Basically sounds like Pavement playing like Crazy Horse, with lots of fuzzed up guitar and jams. --Geoff
  4. I haven't posted any pix here in a long time, mainly because I haven't taken any interesting shots. Just not feeling that creative spark going to same places around Brisbane. But I'm in Melbourne for the marathon on Sunday and hoping to hit the CBD and surrounds on Sunday night. Maybe that creative spark will return by exploring a new place. If anyone has suggestions or wants to go on a photowalk then lemme know. --Geoff
  5. The Blue Nile - A Walk Across The Rooftops and Hats -- played these today because I read there are vinyl re-issues forthcoming. I have the LP of the Rooftops, but my CDs sound plenty good, and will do me. I also listened to third album Peace At Last but ... meh. --Geoff
  6. So is bluray. There could be audio-only laserdiscs. And if not, there should be! 🙂 --Geoff
  7. That's an added bonus. Exclusivity. Hipster cachet. --Geoff
  8. I've said it before: if you want pristine sound (like CD), large beautiful covers (like vinyl) and annoying retro packaging (like cassettes) then laserdiscs are yer answer. Why is there no laserdisc album resurgence? 🙂 --Geoff
  9. Across Tundras - Electric Relics -- continuing to explore this riffage. Like old American folk songs given the heavy psych treatment. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  10. Across Tundras - Sage -- more fuzzed up heavy tunage. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  11. Across Tundras - Old World Wanderer -- howling vocals, fuzzed up guitar, rumbling bass, and thunderous drums, all evoking imagery of the ol' west. Sounds kinda like a Songs:Ohia / Live Rust kinda mash-up. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  12. Brambles - Charcoal -- just the thing for coffee on a Sunday morning, even though this is a late-night album, full of slow piano tunes backed by strings and woodwinds. £4 for the lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  13. Great band, but this box is not the first three albums. It's missing earlier albums Budgie and Squawk. I have the Budgie on LP and Squawk, In For The Kill, and Bandolier on CD. I think that I prefer Budgie the most (gotta love an album with a song called Nude Disintegrating Parachutist Woman) --Geoff
  14. T.G. Olson - The Complete Blood Meridian For Electric Drone Guitar -- in which a bloke improvises hellish soundscapes scored to Cormac McCarthy's violent and hallucinatory Western novel Blood Meridian. Each track represents a chapter of the book, apparently. Expect lots of solo electric guitar and feedback, occasionally with some acoustic guitar and other effects. Over four hours worth! Gunna be a long night. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  15. Endless Melancholy - Fragments Of Scattered Whispers -- an album of processed tape sounds and mournful tickling of the ivory. Just the thang for chilling on the couch on a Friday evening. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
