Because best things in life aren't things.
Court in session, justice done
I’ll rush into it anyway
Forever is for everyone else
Phoenix – Bankrupt! (Right Click to Download)
Through all of youth I was looking for you
without knowing what I was looking for
or what to call you I think I did not
even know what I was looking how would I
have known you when I saw you as I did
time after time when you appeared to me
as you did naked offering yourself
entirely at that moment and you let
me breathe you touch you taste you knowing
no more than I did and only when I
began to think of losing you did I
recognize you when you were already
part memory part distance remaining
mine in the ways that I learn to miss you
from what we cannot hold the stars are made
-W.S. Merwin – Youth

I’ve been obsessively listening to Kill for Love in which lethargic vocals ache with implicit longing, textures fade in and out coloring a film noir-esque landscape and gritty drumming taints your heart. On the bonus side, we have James Blake with two new tracks performed live. His new album will be out in a couple of days, so here is a sneak peek of what to expect.
More updates coming soon.

San Soda’s ESP rework was a limited press on vinyl by We Play House Records(same people that brought us Let’s Go couple of years ago). Due to high demand, 150 copies on circulation sought buyers for more than $1000 on discogs. So what makes this record so special? It is not pretentious and it is stupidly simple (there is no kick drum on the whole track). Slutty high-hats, a bass hit here and there layered on top of lovely vocals. Yes, the heat is definitely on.
Howling is music with soul and Kraviz always manages to get those yearnings right.
Yet the true gem of today’s post is Voices From The Lake. An aural painting of a lush landscapes. Organic techno for the modern psychonaut.

How can John Talabot be so good? His sound sculptures feel: unrushed, happy to be in the moment, content with the status quo, one and all with its surroundings and in touch with zen. Away from the troubles of the real urban jungle, Mr.Talabot seems to be on a Balearic island watching the sunset with a semi-conscious yearning towards the present. A sun is set. A bridge is broken. Yet what’s hinted at is more than what is shown. Don’t forget, only the fool looks at a finger that points at the sky.

It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.
Happy holidays to everyone!

n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

What happens to the hole when the cheese is gone?
After 2 months of silence, Resistance is back.
When everything is the same, yet something meaningful has been lost. Where has it disappeared to? Was the abstraction of meaning just an illusion?
In case you’ve been wondering, I have been asking unanswerable questions and desiring the impossible in the meanwhile. (I’ve also been having fun playing around with my own bleeps and noises, some of which you can listen to here)
Here are 5 well-executed groovy tracks that have been occupying my ears to help me get through Monday.
More updates to follow.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field.
I will meet you there.
Recorded live in Pershing Lounge in Chicago, Ahmad Jamal’s Poinciana is one of the most famous jazz grooves of all time. Vernel Fournier and Israel Crosby follow Jamal’s dynamic and expressive range of chords with hypnotic and breathing rhythms, giving birth to a vast range of emotional flavors.
Bonus of the day is Nicolas Jaar’s side project Darkside with guitarist Dave Harrington.

There is something bizarrely heartwarming about raw sin/saw waves. Maybe it’s pacman & nintendo brainwashing a whole generation or maybe it’s the mathematical perfection they provide to our ears.Somehow our generation has deeply engrained the unnatural as the natural. Whatever it is, these sounds that no living creature’s ears had the opportunity to hear until a century ago are here, and they are here to stay.
To cut a long story short, I miss electroclash.
