Currently Spinning

Tei Shi - Bassically -- got this track playing on repeat ... got an 80s synth beat ... and vocals that get ever more euphoric and sweet. Neat!

Ben Craven - Last Chance To Hear -- got this CD today from the man himself (not difficult, since we work together and have the occasional jam). More mostly instrumental "cinematic" (wot used to be "progressive") rock, featuring William Shatner (yes, Cap'n Kirk) doing his vocal magic on one track. Cover art by Freya Dean (daughter of Roger, who did the Yes covers of yore).

The album launch is coming up in the near future isn't it?

Felt like a bit of industrial and raucous tunes today.  Which Ministry and Snowman covered nicely.

Possibly the closest to Mogwai Oz has produced but with less guitar noodling and more ambience and drum beats. Its not bad but wont be bothering to hunt down any of their other albums

Ben and Ellen Harper - CHILDHOOD HOME

 

I really like Ben Harper's work, and this was a little bit different. More folksy, with his Mum. I really like this too. Its honest and the heartfelt sentiments come through strongly, without being overly mushy!

A good compilation of sorts for those that may be unfamiliar with the maestro's catalogue.

 

Only covers tunes from '85 through to '92 though, and not in any real chronological order.

Your taste is impeccable James.  Never heard of Hildur until now.  I will be financially poorer, but musically richer as a result.  Cheers mate.

MASSIVE ATTACK - Ritual Spirit EP

 

Got to give this a few more spins, 1. to loosen up the speakers base cones some more, and warm up the electronics, and 2. to see if it has any lasting power. 

First impression, nice but not mindblowing.

So back to an old favourite, something more familiar and inherently delicate (vocally, anyhow).

GRIZZLY BEAR - Shields
