I like, getting a definite DJ Shadow-esqe vibe from it (piano sounds quite similar, though not the same, to one of the tracks on Entroducing). And having mentioned Entroducing I have, of course, to post this:

Every year there is an album I love that I unfairly ignored for some utterly aribtrary reason. This could quite well be this years example, so thanks for posting it!

In my defence, it does have a really fucking stupid title, which would probably have made me ignore it again if you hadn't said "new album!"

Bejeesus, you've reminded me what a genius DJ Shadow could be and made me reminisce over summer evenings spent entirely to listening through Entroducing.

What went wrong? How could that have ever represented a dead end in music? We didn't do our duty. It should have been us carrying the flame...

It's not so much the band name (though it ain't great either) it's the album title of "Put Ur Back N 2 It" which just invokes memories of the absolutely dire Ice Cube song.

Oh, I know about The Orb! Well, just a bit because I found out about them last week but I didn't know he's involved with Transit Kings! I heard some of his music and found one track(it was about clouds or something) to be quite brilliant. And it's about 20 years old, I think; which is ahead of it's time when it was released

Man, those last three songs are all competely different and all rather excellent.

Anyway the sunny weather isn't the only thing putting a smile on my face, no siree! The Futureheads' acapella album Rant while initially sounding like a bit of a novelty is actually rather delightful. If the bit 48 seconds into the following video doesn't put a smile on your face then you might just be a little bit dead inside (or have some freaky allergic reaction to covers of Sparks' songs!).

Weird seeing new stuff from Futureheads and Regina. I mean, of course they're still going, but when you don't keep tabs on bands you like, they just sort of fall off the radar.

Seems like the lack of interest in indie bands in the mainstream has been good for the Futureheads. Been left to try new things rather than seeking out radio playlists. Would be interesting to see how they perform that album live.

(Also props for not just shoving some synths into their sound and hoping for the best.)

Funnily enough someone stuck Maximo Park's debut album on today leaving me wonder what had happened to them. As it turns out they've got a new album due and from the sounds of the first single they have shoved some synths in and hoped for the best! The video is pretty good though.

@salix:

I love "Hoist that Rag." That guitar riff in it gets me going for some reason. I'm an obsessive Tom Waits fan, though. If anyone wants cast bootlegs to any of his musicals pm me and I'll hook you up.

Anyhow, I just discovered "Peter Grimes" an Opera by English composer Benjamin Britten. It's awesome. I'd even recommend it to people who don't usually like Opera as it kind of skirts the line between Opera and Musical theater at times.

It's hard to find any chillout music that's not boring enough to discourage me from staying up late for studies or so good, I'm more focused on the music rather than my notes.

Think I've mentioned Laurel Halo a few times now. Spent some time tonight with her new release on Hyperdub. Before I was just a huge fan, now I think I'm just a fully paid-up gushing fanboy. Really hope she gets more recognition for this LP (if she even wants it) because as much as I like people like Grimes and Julia Holter, they can't really touch what Laurel is doing.

The way she seems to effortlessly combine creating a pop song that holds your attention, whilst experimenting with sounds all in the same track. Can't get enough of it.

This one jumped out on the first listen:

Someone accidentally linked me to their favourited videos on Youtube today, and the discussion that followed was something along the lines of:
Me: "You've got the Mirror's Edge soundtrack on here? Wow! Hey, here, try this other Solar Fields stuff."
Them: "That's cool! I didn't know you knew of Mirror's Edge? Try this Cafe del Mar track."
Me: "I didn't know you knew them! How'd you like this Zircon song?"
Them: "Zircon?! I've never met anyone else who liked Zircon! ..."

Meeting someone with a similar musical taste who is just as willing as you to share links to songs as you are is always a good experience.

@Diamond Dog: There are some lovely soundscapes going on there, have to say I'm more a fan of the 'traditional' Hyperdub stuff but it is nevertheless very nice. She has a very unique style, kinda 23rd century Kate Bush or something.
Gah you've made me notice how much crazy music has come out on Hyperdub recently damn you!

I've been listening to SoulEye's VVVVVV soundtrack like mad, plus some UK garage (you guys probably just call it "garage" don'tcha) and a smidge of psytrance.

DJ Druid from Ireland is playing here in Toronto tonight but it's rainy and pooey outside so I may or may not go check him out. I saw him play at a 3-day outdoor rave a decade ago and loved his unique style so it would be a shame if I decided to be too prissy to step out into the rain.

Glad you like her stuff sabrage (obsession is a good thing, right?)

I certainly think being on Hyperdub has helped her get noticed more. Not that she was really unknown before, it's just the mere fact of releasing on Hyperdub gets you more press.

Be interesting to see if she sticks with them for a while or if this is just a one album thing. I get a bit giddy at the thought of her remixing and collaborating with some of the people Hyperdub have on their books.

All right, I want an admission from you lot, because I can't be the only idiot that does this too often. Buy an album, give it a cursory listen, and then end up setting it aside and being distracted before you can properly absorb it. This results in coming back to the album many months later, realising it's awesome and hating yourself.

All the Laurel Halo talk prompted me to go back and have a proper listen to a collaboration album she was part of and gosh is it just the most beautiful thing. I feel more than a little stupid that I sat with this on my shelf for so long without listening to it properly. On the plus side it's like a brand new album I didn't expect to have.

UK Garage is most definitely valid as a genre descriptor. I hated it when the first wave happened, but will happily take so solid crew over almost anything modern now.

The Canadian rave scene was heavily influenced by England, but we had a bit of an identity crisis when it came to naming the genres. We prefixed "UK" on a lot of names, which worked colloquially, but doomed us to wondering questions like "what do they call brazil nuts in Brazil?"

We have UK hardcore (an umbrella term here, known in England as freeform or trancecore), UK garage (Canadians pronounce it "garAHdge" while Brits call it "GERRidge"), UK hard house (I think Brits call it "hardbag"), UK NRG (Brits call it NU-NRG or something.. the likes of Captain Tinrib and Weirdo), etc.

It got even more confusing when our rave scene came into its own and started producing homegrown music, yet in the spirit of our English forefathers. "Canadian UK garage" and somesuch.

It's terrible. It's pretty similar to the old one (which in my opinion is one of the best Bond songs ever) only instead of Tina Turner they have someone doing a bad Tina Turner impression. Sadly the new singer doesn't have the voice nor the strong yet suggestive intonation that characterises Turner's version.

Anyway, I've been listening to Ulver's Childhood's End for a while now, and I don't know, not quite what I expected, but then again, most songs are not familiar to me by any margin. But I love their version of "I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)".

I've just been made aware of Suomisaundi which translates to "Finnish sound". Since my early teens I've been obsessed with electronic music, largely stemming from the old MOD\S3M\XM scenes (aka "demoscene") which had a stronghold in Finland. Since learning of this genre I've bought albums by Salakavala and Shiwa 2000 which exhibit different branches stemming from that characteristic demo sound.

Shiwa 2000's album Runkmeditation & Perstantra is a varied collection of techno, trance, and demo. Sometimes the variety between consecutive songs is a little too jarring but the music is colourful and upbeat.

Salakavala's album Fractal Fishing is a really rare treat for me. I love a good psytrance album but my definition of "good psytrance" is razor thin and rarely bestowed. This album grinds that razor's edge on iceskates, blossoming in brilliant sparks. The synths and modulation, the enticing hihats, the structure and the timing, it's all purrrrrrfect.

Jesus Christ dude, Salakavala is really good. I can't say I'm deep into the demoscene, but I've always had a soft spot for Project S-11 and some classic Amiga soundtracks:

Right now I'm listening to the soundtrack for Second Reality by Purple Motion of Future Crew. Future Crew's two composers, Purple Motion and Skaven, as well as some of their coders, went on to form Remedy who made Max Payne and Alan Wake.

They were all from Finland and were the champions of the worldwide demoscene. This relates directly to my previous post about Suomisaundi.

I'm frequently amazed that that S-11 soundtrack was made on a Game Boy. If you see that Lesser album for sale locally, I would snag it up; it doesn't seem to pop up too often.

I just discovered Daniel Johnston. He's this schizophrenic dude who did a bunch of awesome home piano and organ recordings on a tape deck in the early 1980s. He also did more professional stuff later on which is OK, but his early stuff is best. Hearing him really allows me to make sense of alot of the indie bands from the past 15 years or so, especially anti-folk people. He seems to have been hugely influential.

My current favorite song of his:

I really like The Dirty Projectors' new album. There's not a bad song on it, but also it's very much an "Album" album, so there aren't really any stand out singles either that work all that well outside the context of the album as a whole. This one's probably my favorite, for example, but it's also not really what the band sounds like as a whole:

Since I've come back home, I've been browsing the music channels. Two bands (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FmkHqUwa4zg) piqued my interest and then I went to my local friendly Amazon website and bought a not small amount of albums.

Dorktacular weekend. My wife and I started playing Guild Wars 2 on Friday evening, blinked, and then it was time to go to work on Monday.

We listened to Jeremy Soule's soundtrack as we played and it's beautiful and very reminiscent of the first game, seemingly taking some songs verbatim. It's variable and very complementary to the scenery and action.

I find music in the strangest places. This one's featured in the not-so-great sequel to the one of the best puzzle games ever made since Tetris. The Go! Team is fantastic in this one. Love that energy.

They're one of my favorites of the last decade for sure. They make me feel like Rocky training for the big fight, no matter what I'm doing.

Here's one I wish was an album track. It's a bit groovier than their usual stuff:

I've revisited CMX's Isohaara-album. Much better than I remember it being, and of course some bonus points for having the name of a dam in the town where I grew up. This is definetly one of the best songs from the album. "Where Evil Was Buried", as the song's name would be translated. And the english lyrics can be found from here (http://www.allthelyrics.com/forum/nordic-countries-lyrics-translation/56478-minne-paha-haudattiin-cmx-eng-finn.html).

It's one those occasions where you are forced to socialise, I'm quite alright with relatives but total strangers it's a no-no. I'm just not good at making small talks or such things. Driving about 500 km to hometown is very tiring too, especially with maniacs on the expressway.

Besides, most of fondest gaming memories occur during Ramadhan (back then it usually coincide with school holidays - play games all day erry day) so it's quite a special month for me.

Yeah, spending more than three or so hours in a traffic jam in fucking Karak's a pain in the ass (literally or otherwise) but hey, I usually looked forward to it because it's mostly about going back to the hometown and spend some time with the family. It's more of a family thing, really.

Anyways, back on topic. Rob Hubbard's really good at making music with just the chiptunes from the 'ol Commodore64

It has been a while since I've checked up on the ridiculously prolific Euros Childs, mostly because his past few releases have steered away from the poppy wonder of Bore Da and have got increasingly melancholy (which is fine but not in my mind his strongest suit). His new single is aptly named "That's Better" and hopefully his new album continues along the lines of pop excellence therein:

3 years after everyone else but better late than never right! Despite listening to a lot of good stuff there's not yet been one that I've obsessively listened to and this has been filling the gap rather nicely. Perfect album for some late night listening. Sterile drum programming, really clean guitar, laid back vocals yet it all somehow comes together to sound rather warm and lovely.

"We've just been performing a guerilla gig
In the middle of another group's guerilla gig
Well surely that's the ultimate guerilla gig
But still they cried like girls
