Life is all about what’s in the mix and the above is what we recently found after clearing out our compost bin of its organic matter. There’s some surprises: a sonic screwdriver (for God’s sake), a silver teaspoon and a plastic bag with someCaesar Saladmix in it! It’s frightening as we think we’re really careful of what we put in the heap.
As for our latest bit of listening pleasure: theRhythm Doctor’s audio mix for FatCat records (above), there’s no unwanted rubbish in there! Listen out for the following!
Big shout to Rob from Yesmate a great music sharing platform for mixes and playlists (Mixcloud, Soundcloud, Youtube, Spotify, etc). You’ll definitely find something to keep you happy never mind what genre you’re into. We’ve been listening since the weekend to some fine mixes including the great Blundetto, Mixmaster Morris and Jon More. Log on…
Blue King Brown featuring The Congo’s – Babylon a Fall
Thanks to our good mate from across the pond Doctor Strangedub (and DJ Baby Swiss) for playing this one on this week’s The Echo Chamber on KFAI (a show well worth listening to live or on play again, and on a great radio station which has all sorts of music shows represented on it.)
This is a lovely roots tune featuring the talents of Melbourne’s Blue King Brown with The mighty Congo‘s, it’s one with a wide range of vocals and is a grower. Give it time, give it time…
A couple of great tunes heard on radio shows this week. The first is a lovely loop laden piece of ambient electronica by Gnesis called Pear off the DJ Kicks LP by Actress played on Tom Ravenscroft’s show. Haunting ain’t the word. One to look at the seed catalogues to and decide whether it’ll be artichokes or asparagus peas.
The other is Seconds, Minutes, Hours by David John Sheppard as played by Andrew Weatherall on his Music’s Not For Everyone show on NTS Radio here. Tune! Thanks to our good mates Maz and Marc for re-reminding us about that show.
Heard on Tom Ravenscroft’s show this week, a tune from Deerhunter called Snakeskin out on 4AD (home to the US Girls we featured a while back here). Loving the instrumental section three quarters of the way in. The tune takes a little while to sink in, but it will! One to play loud while you realise it’s near enough autumn.
