    good find, Who. Malian music has got some really cool intrumentation and melodies. I didn't know much about it until after Blur's Think Tank which is one of my fave records. zapatiste may accuse me of orientalism but I still like the blend of albarn's snotty britpop vocals and the traditional instruments and odd melodies.




    this whole show is pretty great.

    Some stuff i've been listening to lately:


    Berntholer were a band from Brussels around in the mid 80s. Not really sure how to describe this..., pretty sad / melancholic..., reminds me of This Mortal Coil. Video is weirdly cool - just lots of wandering around among sculpture / environmental art. I find myself repeating this a lot.


    Vatican Shadow is the guy from Prurient. Really weird project. Kind of 'meta commentary' of post-9/11 in a Tom Clancy novel / most-wanted Iraqi playing cards / Fox News polemic headline sort of way. Similar to Prurient - pretty dark and brooding..., repetition. Beats that sound like they've been re-recorded several times. Dirty bass line.


    Something like gaseous ambient goth pop realms ...reclaimed 80s stock sounds. Reminds me of winter in Berlin. With repeated listens i always go up a volume notch each time. waaaaaah.



    Ramleh are probably my favourite 'noise' group / duo. Not really so into the power electronics stuff they did which i find unlistenable, but the Hole in the Heart release is so good. This track is particularly beautiful and usually leaves me pretty exhausted. Perfect tones.

    ^ that Wes Montgomery track is so good.

    I've been listening to summery chill-pop lately.

    Sat next to the lead singer in my Intro to Psych class freshman year. Few years later, I see him getting reviewed on Pitchfork and doing Baron Wells ads. Crazy.
