First listen to this album, pretty good energy. Picked this up in a 5 cd set, might be the pick of the litter.

The Lucksmiths - Where Were We? -- got this odds-n-sods compilation CD yesterday for $1. Aussie acoustic jangle pop, with wry lyrics typically featuring an awkward protagonist, kinda like a Nick Earls novel set to music. Typical: "I had nothing to do, and you had nothing to do with me". Genius.

The Virtual Conductor - Aquarelle -- one bloke and his synths creating an orchestral sound (with some vocalists for the choral parts). Kinda sounds like Oldfield or Vangelis going symphonic in parts. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp.

Evening Lads & greetings from a chilly West Wyalong.

 

Finally arrived at Mum’s place last week, on the road for 25 hours, including a 4 hour sleep in the car, and stopping every hour for the Blu boy to drink and take a wiz.

I drove through the night, a night after the full moon; it was clear and a bit nippy.  It was a magical journey with the moonlight, especially south of Sydney heading out west where there was quite a frost.

As the day broke a fog had formed and it gave the landscape a spooky atmosphere and it was at this time I decided to play some music.

With such a long drive in the older car, I drove without music for most of it so I could hear the engine, wheels etc.

But, with the finish line in sight, the car not missing a beat, and such a “magestical” view and atmosphere, I decided to take the edge off with  some nice tunes.

 

First up I went with...

 

Radiohead  ‘Kid A’

5193CD5C-5CA2-46E3-8FFA-9D0FF7C1659A.jpeg.d6164b5a6b938f2673b769a3706734a0.jpeg

Being new to this album I thought it appropriate for my new life out west.

Loving this album big time..

 

It was what I could only describe as ‘a perfect listen’, the timing and situation, and also my state of mind.

 

How could I follow it?

 

Radiohead  ‘In Rainbows’

2FAF8C51-3C4A-47A6-8A52-53E3DCD6DBF5.jpeg.1da2552b4a0e2b94c023d9315b463105.jpeg

I’m familiar with this album and at the time it was the perfect follow up.

 

Having my newest, second hand CD’s at the ready, I reached for the next one...

 

Black Cab  ‘Jesus East’

73C5FDED-8811-43E5-8F80-D75E233AC946.jpeg.ae462772c29d1a37a8d4a899838c6969.jpeg

Australian, Indie Rock/Electro/Psy with some eastern sounds/instruments.

I have been listening to this in the car ever since.

 

’Tis good to be back.  Suffering music withdrawels without the Cosmic Rig, still only have the laptop to play with and I’m missing good, deep vibrations.

 

Mum is doing well.  I started at the pub today, back to cooking now after over ten years of gardening.

Feeling good and confident I’ve made the right decision.

 

Cheers Big Ears

Ant.

 

Sorry ‘bout the delayed post, it was so memorable for me I had to share.

Milk Carton Kids - All The Things That I Did and  All The Things That I Didn’t Do

When Michael Clarke start his commentary it’s time to put on something that is worth listening to. This is a sublime listen, beautifully recorded with the duo joined by a full band.

 

Cheers
