KEMPER NORTON: "LOWENDER" EP

While I was away on saturday, old Kid Shirt pal and musical ally Kemper Norton mailed to say he / they had a new free-to-ether EP - "Lowender" - available for download.

And rather wonderful it is too. I'm particularly smitten by "Allantide".

The found-voices that appear on parts of the EP sound like a distant (but far more melodic) Cornish cousin of some of the drifting ghost-voices we caught on tape at car-boot sales and incorporated into our non-gig installation work.

Nice work, Kemper!

SUN ARAW: "MA HOLO"



Pretty-much near-pitch-perfect Fifth World Musics.

19F3 FLOPPIES

MPA: "ON THE SUNNY SIDE OF THE SKULL"

Bummerism, or: the Internet-Only Release of "On The Sunny Side of The Skull" - one of a handful of lost 'mythological' albums (this one from 2006), by Medroxy Progesterone Acetate, one of my favouritest recording artists in the world.

This one was flummox'd / side-swiped by assorted labels-that-sunk-without-trace and a rip-off merchant who sold the master-tape on eBay as a "special edition of one". We have a Brit swearword specially designed for twats like that.

It's kinda quasi-tragic to me that this never came out on a 'proper' label. I woulda put it out (says the man who's taken two years to not put out a comp and is struggling to find 5 mins to put various other musical projects to bed, yet still finds time to blog instead of getting on with urgent work. Methinks me doth protest too much. *sigh*).

Anyway, here it is. You might not like it, but I certainly do.

PS: Listen on headphones - it's awesome.
