    Retour presque dix ans en arrière, N.O.W. sort Smoker's delight et écrit une des pages de légende de la musique électronique. Virage assez radical après la bleep warpienne du premier album, ce deuxième album est le meilleur de George Evelyn (désolé de contredire le chroniqueur de Carboot Soul). "Il vaudra toujours 10000 compilations lounge" dixit Trax. Et bien plus encore, si la comparaison est permise... L'album débute en splendeur avec le célèbre Nights introlude. La suite, il suffit de se caler tranquillement (avec ou sans spliff) et de se laisser transporter par la magie (delight) de l'album. Tout est bon! Indispensable pour tout amateur de trip-hop, de soul, de Warp et d'ambances feutrées groovy...

    fragments & foundations is the 3rd release from bogatzke,
    a solo-musician from germany.
    (all released on digitalkunstrasen... links below)

    when i heard the first track of this release, i was not sure
    what to think about it. electronic beats, a piano
    and a guitar, mixed together in a nice interesting song.

    then "the sound of one hand clapping" came, and this one was a bit
    too "old-scool-disco-electronic" for me... but, i didn't stop
    listening, because even if i didn't like it very much,
    it was catchy enough to make me wanna hear more.
    "ten years strong" brought this release back to where it came from -
    spheric electronic sounds with decent beats and a leading
    guitar-melody, all merged together to another great song.

    "how to reanimate a ghost", the 4rd song from the ep
    finally managed to enthuse me, and to fix the decision
    to add this release to the blog.

    at last "at the golden waterfalls"
    (the reason why this album is tagged as "post-rock")
    worthy ends this ep

    concluding i want to say, that i think that "bogatzke" got talent.
    you can hear the development within his 3 releases,
    and i'm really looking forward to what's comming next.

    Tracklist :   
    01. Lights Will Guide You Home
    02. The Sound Of One Hand Clapping
    03. Ten Years Strong
    04. How To Reanimate A Ghost
    05. At The Golden Waterfalls

    Always a fan of this guy, love his tunes and there's a couple of gems on his new EP. Still that eclectic funk type sound, but my only complaint is that the tunes are relatively short, but still, there's flashes of sheer brilliance in each one of them. This is the first release from Modeselektor's new label Monkeytown Records and the tunes to check are 'High Together'& 'Nights Off'. More of this please.

    Tracklist :   
    1 The Door
    2 The Uninvited Guest
    3 High Together
    4 Night Off
    5 Let me in
    6 Von Kopf Bis Kuss

    Altered States

    I came late to Justin Broadrick. In 2005, he donated a remixed and retitled Jesu track for a compilation to benefit the New Orleans radio station WTUL where I was a volunteer. At the time, in the aftermath of the notorious man-made flood, WTUL was broadcasting from a coffee shop, one of the glimmers of optimism in a city temporarily suffused with a sense of monumental doom.

    I forgot about Broadrick until 2007 when he released a new Jesu record, Conqueror, and also Pale Sketches, an album of his Jesu offcuts from the preceding seven years. Now, in 2010, he adopts the name Pale Sketcher to issue this “de-mixed” version of the latter, wherein different elements are brought to the fore and others erased (as in dub) as he traverses a terrain dominated by beats and synthesizers—at times under a thin mist of recognizable guitar or voice.

    Things begin very well as “Don’t Dream It (Mirage Mix)” is bristling with melodic vibrations and glitchy rhythm harnessed to a heavy thump and sonorous synth suggestive of an enormous robotic thief limping along spilling coin bags and cash registers. The track has some layered sounds which are near-impossible to describe: Is he being accompanied by a bunch of titanium weasels rubbing their paws over wine glasses? “Can I Go Now (Gone Version)” is mainly interplay between a percussive throb akin to the huff of a steam train and Broadrick’s processed voice. The effect is quasi-choral and industrial, as if Sigur Ros were somehow arriving at Birmingham New Street station for a spot of winter shopping (in the late 19th century).

    As with the entire album, it would be easier to describe “Wash It All Away (Cleaned Dub)” if Broadrick’s methodology were mechanical rather than digital (see how he puts the violin bow over the guitar strings and then shakes his ample mane etc). But the relative invisibility shrouding the whole digital process shouldn’t detract from any of Pale Sketches Demixed, including this fantastic if simple instrumental. The piece resembles part of a soundtrack to a science fiction film as imagined by the Blue Nile (if they had a sense of threat or danger), and eventually winds down for the final half minute or so to set a quieter mood from which emerges “The Playgrounds Are Empty (Slumber Mix)”. This track will be the highlight for some listeners, as of the eight tracks it sounds most like a song and its gnawing gorgeousness is hard to shake off. Listen to this driving on a wet road on a dark night and you might be immersed in the feeling that you are not just in a movie, but that you are the star.

    Pale Sketcher ranks with any of Broadrick’s various projects (such as Godflesh, Jesu, and Final) and may even prove to be the most popular. It is less “metal” sounding or guitar based than his other work, but the balance of gentleness and heaviness is as apparent as ever and the quality is as consistent as we have come to expect. Keen ears will find these reinterpretations quite broad, and should any listeners discover that “Tiny Universe (Interstellar)” and “Dummy (Banhoff Version)” are as welcome on the floor in a hip dance club as might be imagined, well, please report back. Final track “Plans That Fade (Faded Dub)” is a marvelous warbling slab of ambient-dub that shows how to make a song seems both spacious and suffocating. Play this loud at the traffic lights and people will run a red one to get away from the weird feeling of conducting a seance underwater.

    At times, listening to Pale Sketches is the hypnotic equivalent to watching a mountain as seasons slowly pass over it. The basic landscape of the tracks is massive and consistent, allowing small changes to take on greater significance: A direction which Umberto Eco once predicted for popular music, although presumably he meant it as a monotonous bad thing. In Broadrick’s hands, though, the mountain is composed of liquid and gas, is swathed in sad, melodic sounds, and the passing seasons flicker with the light of hope.

    Tracklist :
    1. Don't Dream It (Mirage Mix) 5:22
    2. Can I Go Now (Gone Version) 5:46
    3. Wash It All Away (Cleansed Dub) 5:08
    4. The Playgrounds Are Empty (Slumber Mix) 6:58
    5. Tiny Universe (Interstellar) 4:47
    6. Supple Hope (2009 Mix) 6:38
    7. Dummy (Bahnhoff Version) 5:40
    8. Plans That Fade (Faded Dub) 6:26

    Titel der Audio-CD: „Neue Klänge“. Denn während der Atemlos Live Tournee hat Christopher von Deylen wieder alles gegeben. Eine Pause aber, hat sich der Soundvisionär nicht gegönnt: „Als ich nach Hause kam, war ich so voller Eindrücke, dass ich einfach Musik machen musste“, sagt von Deylen. Ergebnis: neun fantastische Schiller-Stücke, für die der Komponist seine drei Gastsängerinnen der Tour, Kate Havnevik, Angun und Mia Bergström, noch einmal ins Studio bat. Nur konsequent, das diese Audio-CD mit in der neuen Lichtblick-Box steckt, verdichtet sie doch von Deylens persönlichste Eindrücke in seinem klassischen Schiller-Sound.

    Tracklist :
    01. Lichtblick
    02. Ghost (Mit Kate Havnevik)
    03. Zeitschleife
    04. Daylight (Mit Mia Bergstroem)
    05. Heimathafen
    06. Innocent Lies (Mit Anggun)
    07. Le Vide
    08. Sunday (Mit Despina Vandi)
    09. Lichtblick Reprise
