Pospulenn - Sun People Sleepwalker

Pospulenn was an alias of Kane Pour (of Tricorn & Queue and Hundreds) that was mainly guitar-based in its sound. Sun People Sleepwalker is a compilation of Kane Pour's recordings under the Pospulenn name, which total up to over an hour in length. This release, I would say, is the best work I have ever heard from Kane Pour as of yet. In all 13 tracks, melodies are layered over one another as the songs build, and each one hits every single note in its key. In the midst of the guitars, field recordings faintly add density. This combination creates a dream-like feeling that seems completely new to me. During their slow builds, the songs begin to sound so lush that they form a drone that is absolute ecstasy. For its entire 69 minutes, Sun People Sleepwalker never loses its momentum. (description taken from olive music)

basically - guitar ripples of the best kind. as a friend of mine puts it - 'soft, arpeggiated totality'.

flown and flewn. 

Colleen - The Golden Morning Breaks

Colleen is a composer of electronic and ambient based folk music who is based in France. This is her 2005 album, 'The Golden Morning Breaks'.

If you don't really have many childhood memories, you can listen to this. It will make quite a few of them up for you.

Sean Mccann - The Capital

Sean Mccann is a great and relatively new ambient/drone musician on the scene. His 2011 record 'The Capital' is pure bliss, and escapist in a way the album cover would suggest. I recommend this wholeheartedly.

Various Artists - Funf

Probably the best minimal techno/ambient techno compilation from the greatest club in the world and the home of the scene - Ostgut Ton // Berghain. 2 and a half hours of cold steel. Pattern recognition, industrial growth and decay and the very beating heart of the dancefloor. Eat your heart out.

Heya folks

not too sure how many people follow or keep updated with this blog but I've had to take a hiatus because of extensive threatening and complaining from RIAA and their assclown goons. I'll be sure to be back in a month or two.

Pirating beloved art till the day I die.

Leonid Fedorov - Lilac Day

One of the best songwriters and composers of Russia, as referenced in my earlier post about his band Auktyon. Here's his solo record from 2003, the aptly titled 'Lilac Day'.

Are you drunk on substance or intoxicated with memory? sometimes it's hard to tell, isn't it?

The Human League - Dare

The Human League were a new wave act, very influential and very good, for all the right reasons. Their magnum opus 'Dare' will make you jive, make no mistake.

don't you want me?
