- Just fell deeply in love with the album Opal Island by Konntinent.
Some parts sound to me almost like Fennesz‘s Endless Summer with lyrics…
Scored some classic Slam (from 1993) on vinyl in an op shop on the weekend, yes!!!
Have to say I was delighted at the amount of teenagers digging through the CDs. I have to admit I occasionally feel a pang of guilt or social awkwardness purchasing CDs in 2016 – but it’s something I genuinely enjoy collecting – for a number of reasons, I’ll probably write about it at some point – but it made me smile to see, in the time I was in the store, four young people looking through (and importantly picking up) a handful of compact discs…
Speaking of those wondrous shiny discs of music, I did my own digging and decided on getting BT‘s 1997 album ESCM. Absolutely loved Movement In Still Life back in the day, but never heard this album. Really excited with what I’ve heard so far. Ah, those late nineties trance vibes!
Love this review from Discogs user HipsterDoofus:
I just put this on after not listening to it for many years. Man, I don’t remember the last time I danced that hard without being drunk.
Very keen on Golden Gal, the latest single released from the new Animal Collective album Painting With.
The weather has turned from cold to warmer, so this is a delightful soundtrack to it. Has also kicked me into my obsession with PBMTGR I had earlier this year.
- Happy 10th birthday to Silent Shout!!
Did some digging in op shops today and came away with a record, CD and cassette!
So excited to find Wishful Thinking single by China Crisis on wax. I think they’re an extremely underrated band.
Saw a mint copy of Zero 7‘s second album on CD I couldn’t say no to. And yeah, that’s Sia singing.
Speaking of second album’s, I came across Kylie Minogue‘s Enjoy Yourself on cassette for 50 cents and I have no shame in adding it to my collection!!
- So today I found myself watching The Grammy’s _ against my better judgement.
Considering Kendrick Lamar was up for so many awards I thought this was the year they got real and recognized such breathtaking talent.
But no. Surprising myself, I briefly got angry about it. No shade at Taylor Swift, she makes cool pop music, but TPAB is an astonishing work of passionate music. How could they not award it album ov the year, O-M-G!!! Eh, any way
- Today has been one of the coldest February days in Melbourne for over a decade. Today’s playlist has been on a deep house and minimal techno tip.
Palms has a new EP out this month too, BTW!
