SOTD #743 – Magana

SOTD #743 – Magana

Oh, you. You, the singer. You, who can reach through my headphones and command my whole attention. Sometimes the gut reaction is the only way to react: the swoon, the surrender, the fixation with this suave persona that swaggers with such ease. Through music I have learned the shape of desire – contoured and faceted, […]

SOTD #742 – Conformist

“Komputer Jenerated” is a super-short track at 2 minutes and 54 seconds but I want it to loop for hours on end. At the time of writing this piece and forming my thoughts and trying to think of ways to describe what I am hearing, the track has played over and over easily 15 times. […]

SOTD #741 – Oh Well, Goodbye

SOTD #741 – Oh Well, Goodbye

Dread comes in many forms. However, I’d say they all fall into two classes – the real and the beckoned. The former emerges from factors beyond or barely within our control: the upcoming election for us Americans, the first day of school for the new kid in the neighborhood, a daunting workload for the stressed […]

SOTD #740 – Soft-Hearted Scientists

There are times when the mood of music is enough…times where some weird sound can carry you through. Cardiff’s Soft Hearted Scientists know how to make eerie soft electronic psychedelia. The space between the notes, the light drums, the watery keys, the hardly hard-enough strumming of the guitar. On the first listen I just wanted […]

SOTD #739 – Hologram Teen

I had this one kid that worked for me at my label ages ago who listened non-stop to French electro-pop and Italian disco. He now works at a major electronic label working with some of the biggest electronic acts around. I never could understand all the stuff he was so into at the time. I […]

SOTD #733 – #738 – Rainham Sheds, Rattle, Kohti Tuhoa, Everyone is Dirty, No Sister

The beast that is Kohti Tuhoa, from Helsinki. Photo by Aleksi Sorjonen. Time has been fleeting lately. Great music slips through the cracks like golden dust. Are we gonna do something about it? Yes! Yes we can! Here, take a fistful. If we linger, it’ll slip away again. RAINHAM SHEDS I could be clever with […]

SOTD #731 – The Fireworks

Currently, I am not in love. Previous scribbles from moi would lead you to believe I covet certain men from certain distances for several months at a time – and that was true, in regards to the internal longing, the upheaval, the sense of lack. But now, as my life stagnates and the rest of […]

SOTD #730 – Kellar

SOTD #730 – Kellar

Kellar is Andy Pyne. Kellar is Dan Cross. Kellar is seismic in relation to the music making you move around it. Kellar is propulsion in relation to pushing you to engage with what you are hearing. Kellar is there because it needs to be, and it is up to you how you deal with it. […]

SOTD #729 – Quimper

SOTD #729 – Quimper

Blast. There’s this pianist that I used to know the name of. Howard? No, Harold. Harold something. Active in the late 80s. Don’t give me that patronizing look. The fact that I don’t buy vinyl doesn’t make me any less of a music scholar. I imagine the folks who dedicate entire rooms to albums lose […]

SOTD #728 – Ani Glass

Have you ever seen the movie Rad? It’s a movie about a small town boy that makes good on his BMX bike while he is constantly kept down by a corporate BMX company which is worried that if he races he will win. Anyway, there is a scene about a quarter of the way through […]
