Some tripped out psychedelic madness for you now on Paw Tracks. First Nation Coronation's 'Braided Metal' has a vocal which is almost
meditative, with guitar and drums that build the tension of the track making you expect
something bad will happen, but it doesn't. It goes all pretty. The perfect trip, somewhere between

Personally I find albums including different artists make that album more of a "Various Artists" album then their "own" album. It's great to have some others do "remix's" on a separate album but Montag shouldn't have focused half his album to "who-are-they" artists. These "contributing" artists don't add much to Montag's image but just add "blah...view item
Lastly from me is the new CD by Disco Drive. On Unhip, Italy's premier post-rock lovin' indie, 'Things to do Today ' splices up strands of Dischord inspired math rock (see Q and Not You etc) & Liars' voodoo percussive workouts into a whirling, compulsive soup of hypnotic, loud funky alt rock. Straddling the chasm between punk funk and edgy post...view item
An interesting record has landed in front of me. Kyon & Dyems 'Overnight' make some clever sounds and dope electronic beats but the first thing that really hits you is that there is a scottish guy dropping rhymes. Edinburgh and Fife aren't places you associate with hip-hop but Bambatta's virus has spread throughout the globe so in those terms i...view item

Onto a couple of CD's on Important. The 1st one is Tau Emerald which is Tara Burke from Fursaxa and Sharron Kraus of Espers fame (and about a million other side projects). From the off 'Travelers Two' is the most fiddly dee folky thing I've heard in ages. I've got an old Warner Chappell LP of medieval folk songs (some of them date back 100's of y...view item
I've been digging a bizarre new CD on Nosordo, a Swedish affair by Ljudbilden and Piloten. The sleeve is a right old Rene Magritte homage which wins points. Flicking around to get a sense of this (in) coherence, i'm blessed with an album of accessibly abstract shimmering avant-folk/post rock & blissed neo classical chamber pop! With sketches bu...view item
What a great song! All the elements of a classic REM record are here: a catchy hook, a spirited vocal from Michael Stipe, it has a great guitar riff, the harmonies between Michael Stipe and Mike Mills are present, and it has a stronger sound that is somewhat lacking with R.E.M.'s recent releases. This song sounds like a mix from something out of...view item
A good place to start if you're not familiar with the Mouthus experience. Utterly bizarre rendering of vaguely rock based format with totally fractured but mesmerising rhythms, undescribeable (?) guitar riffs, neanderthal electronics and the densest, most profound vocal moans imaginable. And if that doesn't sound good to you I'm gonna send me t...view item
We got a new CD by Yellotone entitled 'Executive Timber'. You may remember this guy (Simon Harding) having stuff out on Ai Records a bit ago. He's got a bit of a band together now and is singing and everything and it really is great that he is because he's a very talented guy. Brian pipes up and says that this has a New Zealand feel to it with bits...view item
