i'm not looking for themes. just looking for what music is soothing ya in this time...

right now it's

My Dying Bride-Turn Loose the Swans

it's putting me in the gloomy yet not desperate mode I need to be in.

Good call. I'm not feeling MDB's new one nearly as much due to the weaksauce vocals.

Anyway, Richard Skelton's LASTGLACIALMAXIMUM has been filling that void for me by expanding it.

romanesque architect (pomenitul), Sunday, 15 March 2020 01:20 (two months ago) link

weirdly that's the main issue I have with the new one too, even though I think I *like* it overall.

it just feels a little too, uh, by the numbers.

sorry for butt rockin (Neanderthal), Sunday, 15 March 2020 01:21 (two months ago) link

feel ilke Nick Drake is gonna happen before the night is out. Five Leaves Left is my go-to in strife times.

Last 2 weeks:
All the Dr. Rob tributes to Andrew Weatherall on Mixcloud
Fort Beulah N.U. / Woodleigh Research Project 127 to Facility 4 / Stockwell Steppas EP / Various Weatherall 12" mixes
Rotla - Transmissioni
CFCF - Liquid Colours

I suppose it's just music I can lose myself in, rather than reflecting a particular mood. Suppose i'm resisting putting on A Virus With Shoes EP.

Also, uh, Burzum's latest, Thulêan Mysteries, is the kind of cinematic dungeon synth for failed fantasy writers that works especially well when you're self-quarantined in a basement.

anybody got any jazz to suggest for sleep times? I don't mean smooth jazz on upper 90s radio stations to ignore in the background, something with a beat that is interesting but nonetheless will make my limbs lose their tension

Throbbing Gristle only for the foreseeable.

ECM is the first word that springs to mind. Dunno, have you heard Collin Walcott's Cloud Dance?

If you're looking for soothing jazz, that Alabaster dePlume record is outstanding. I find Helen Merrill really soothing.

On the bedtime jazz tip - try Japanese pianist Hiromi, her recent album ‘Specturm’ is great and yellow Wurlitzer blues is getting lots of plays right now.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Sunday, 15 March 2020 11:17 (two months ago) link

The Go Hirano album - that Tylerw linked to on his blog - is my go-to late-night Japanese thing at the moment. It's ostensibly ambient but it's almost got a backporch primitivism feel to it. It's fantastic.

Leiber and Stoller had left Atlantic Records to start their own record label, Red Bird. They had recorded a bunch of stuff but were running out of cash and needed to release something. They ran into George Goldner (at the Palm? Meeting with Hy Weiss?) who was once again down on his luck. Typically he would start a successful R&B or Latin label, then run up a gambling debt and have to sell it to Morris Levy. Jerry and Mike told him they would hire him on the spot, brought him back to their office, showed him the slush pile of recordings, left him the keys, went home to sleep, came back in the morning, to find him sitting there, still dapper, holding up the tape or acetate of The Dixie Cups version of "Chapel of Love," saying something like "On my very word" or however he would have said it. One of them, Jerry, no doubt, said "That PoS!?" but they put it out anyway and it was a hit and kept them alive for a while. They made Goldner a partner, and he eventually ended up selling out his interest as per usual, no to Morris Levy but to someone like him, so Jerry and Mike sold their interest as well, for a dollar I think.
