- Holy shit, best video of the year so far!! Great track, too. 😀
- Loving this cut from the new Joey Anderson record Invisible Switch, released in late December last year on Dekmantel.
- As warm and gooey as honey:
Finally got a day free of busy so was able to jump into some musical goodness.
Come for the awesome track, stay for the delightfully bonkers clip!
The negative reviews which greeted 2010’s Squarepusher Presents Shobaleader One: d’Demonstrator stamped to death any prospectic I may have had in checking it out. And so essentially Tom Jenkinson‘s recent output just fell off my radar. 2012’s Ufabulum and last year’s Damogen Furies have, sadly, been pretty much bypassed by this listener (despite hearing reports here and there that they’re his better releases in a while – what can I say, a period of apathy is a hard thing to break).
Well… today I did stumble upon a used copy of d’Demonstrator going extremely cheaply and decided to try it out. Yeah… so far it’s not brilliant ~however! I have very much taken a shine to the opener Plug Me In.
I think it’s a lovely example of gentle and downcast atmospheric r&b/pop-rock/ehhhh….
Her debut album, Pull My Hair Back, was my favourite album of 2013.
A cup of tea and this cures all ills:
Around the ten year anniversaries of these events it surely is a time for mourning and reflecting on a lost talent but one also of absolute celebration. Donuts well and truly has earned its status as a classic album. It is brimming with creativity, joy and soul.
I really am quite in awe at how the band has evolved and stayed fresh for more than two decades.
Listening to the new song, I couldn’t help but reflect on how I discovered the band in the early 2000s. It was through playing the videogame Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX on my Sega Dreamcast. The song Be Quiet And Drive (Far Away) was on the game’s soundtrack and I absolutely loved it. And so began a passionate love affair.
So it’s a bizarre coincidence to be ending my Friday upon hearing the news of the death of Dave Mirra today.
And my mind wanders to another highlight from that game’s soundtrack, Sublime‘s What I Got.
