It seems that for almost every genre of music there's a load of japanese people who are better at it than you would ever have imagined. I wish that I could be even a quarter of the pianist this guy is.

3:42 onwards is absolutely wild.

so i don't know whether anyone watched fortitude or not but ben frost did the soundtrack. ben frost (australian living / working in iceland) used to be one of my all time faves and i guess i kinda stopped listening to him for a bit (and almost everything else). but the soundtrack he did was beautiful. i remember being surprised when i heard he was doing a soundtrack but it actually makes perfect sense.





and in case you wanna here something he did before the soundtrack





fave tv / movie soundtracks? need to have a think but badalamenti / twin peaks is my immediate no.1

Jazz Cartier's new album is pretty fucking sick. DL Link - https://mega.co.nz/#F!psJ2wCrY!_jtDas5p-6nb2QrOL0Rmfg

Also, here's the album art for the song 'Switch' By Jazz Cartier. I had to share this, i love the colours and scene of this song art.

By the time I made it to my record store all the Deja Entendu albums were gone and the Father John Misty singles were gone. Fuck.

Ah well. Found the Inherent Vice soundtrack for $5 in the sale bin, though, so things worked out.

I felt like an idiot lining up with people who wanted to buy Bruce Springsteen reissues and the White Stripes lenticular cover (especially considering the price), but it was worth it for previously un-released Sun Ra

in a bit of a giegling hole atm

this is just absolutely nuts, the spoken word sample could proper prang you out at 4 am though



this from the same artist, but different pseudonym is also great



WhileI feel Traumprinz is the strongest on the label I also love all of Dwig's stuff and Kettenkarussell, basically anything released on this label is incredible.

Also been feeling 1080p Collection, new stuff that dropped last week on Opal Tapes, RVNG Intl and still loving that DJ Sotofett album that dropped earlier this year.

Booking tickets for the mountain goats at Shepard's Bush O2 Empire, should I get tickets for the stalls (standing only) or level 1/2/3 (unreserved seating) ?

It all costs the same so maybe it doesn't matter?

^One of the better sides of one of the first recorded preacher rappers. Not the most hardcore of the period but excellent phrasing and interaction with his congregation/choir.

I love m83s album "Before the Dawn Heals Us"'. Cities, Digital Shades, and m83 are all close seconds but before the dawn has a sense of atmosphere and fantasy that makes it unforgettable to me. every song has its own narrative strength and it feels like watching a bunch of short movies

friend of mine got discovered (not huge but still its a big deal !)

http://www.wakethedeaf.co.uk/2015/05/15 ... ond-songs/

glad someone else conveyed the feelings i got when i listened to his records.

completely shilling for my friend here, would definitely suggest downloading his stuff https://ruthntrudy.bandcamp.com/album/still-pond-songs (its pay what you want, so feel free to $$ or not if you like!) if you're into lo-fi, cool time listening.

Really like the "aesthetic" of his songs overall, but i think this one really focused in on it and hit the nail on the head. If you've got like 30 min, a calm bedroom and a bit of work to do, this will do you just nicely.

surprised no one has posted surf here yet

def lives up to the hype (at least the hype it got in chicago) imo. focusing the album more on instrumentation (it is donnie's album after all, not chance's) and guest vocals rather than on chance zinger after zinger was a good move.

Jamie xx album isn't hitting me like I expected it to, there are some standout tracks on it but they've mostly been doing the rounds for over a year now. Sleep Sound is great, Girl is quite good, and Good Times is weirdly fun and catchy and quirky, but nothing else really took me. Some of the tracks just feel lazy to me, I can't really see a context where they'd suit in terms of playing them at a party or listening to them at home. I also feel some are just flat out weak and uninspired, like Gosh and Obvs. The tracks with the other xx members are cool but feel fairly kitsch and uncohesive in the context of the album. Like the RA review, I agree, a lot of the tracks lack any 'soul' or 'edge' and don't really bring anything new or compelling to table. It's interesting reading the contrasting P4k and RA reviews of it though, as one lauds while the other lampoons it. What are you ladies & guys thoughts on it?

i'm super loopy atm but i think it was @heckawheel that was talking abt this album and he said something like:

my recollection of heck talking wrote:yeah its interesting cause there's no drops

it's like

the morning you wake up with a dry throat and headache after a rave and remember the throbbing pulsing parts of all the songs

the whole album is like splintered recollections of what happened earlier


so i don't actually know if im quoting the right eprson or how much of that was actually said so apologies in advance if it's incorrect but i thought that was quite an interesting perspective

in any case, i really enjoy listening to the album and think it's better than anything he's done with the xx (although obviously quite different)

One of my favourite bandcamp artists finally put out a new LP.

https://neatbeats.bandcamp.com/

He makes hip-hop beats with a load of quirky, vintage sounding samples of traditional instruments and obscure dialogue. I highly recommend checking out his first LP and EP, great sound.

I actually loved Gosh and Obvs... but I do agree on the soul/edge thing. The edgier tracks feel hollow and the soulful tracks seem very soft. His strengths are a lot of things that happen to distinguish James Blake as well - composition, sound selection, making "space" in his tracks. But James Blake tends to be a lot more ambitious and pulls outside influence from R&B, Hip hop, and soul that Jamie doesn't. I think on this album he's kind of straddling where he's been and where he's going. I see Sleep Sound and Girl to be him looking ahead, and a lot of the other tracks looking back to his roots and paying his dues to UK Electronica. He's done a great job distilling what he likes into some great tracks, and I hope he expands his vision for future releases. Good Times is brilliant and gives me some confidence that he will.

james blake is awesome but what makes jamie xx my favorite is the melancholy that is in every track.

listening to jamie xx for me is being in that space where you are depressed, but also aware of your depression, and knowing that there is both good and bad times ahead of you and behind you. dancing is one of the few things for me that is good wherever i am in my head and life even if you cry when you are done or you want to cry and cant.

jj is another one of my all time favorites who fills this kind of space

James Blake (in his album guise) and Jamie XX are both yawnfests in 2015 but at least James Blake has a few more (now quite old) genuinely genius tracks to hang his hat on.

I'll take care of U, Far Nearer and the florence remix are all way in the past now

I can see what the idea is and it'll go down well at festivals and stuff but its all too tame really and for me the melancholy thing has been done in better, more evocative and challenging ways by plenty of others

Isn't Jamie XX like nine years old. He'll probably release some deep contemplative banger when he turns 28 or something.

Jamie and James both seem boring but I'll listen because stapp won't tell me who the cooler people to listen to are.
