1 – Crazy psychedelic stuff: Animal Collective / Peaking Lights = some kind of new wyrd electronica – free bandcamp d/l: www.robelsynthesia.bandcamp.com
2 – This is a good summer evening album, is it not?
3 – Life of Leisure a lot in anticipation of the new album. I suspect that by doing this I am setting myself up for more disappointment than if I went in unrefreshed.
4 – more wyrd electronic. I am inventing a genre. WATCH IT BLOOM! www.ghibli.bandcamp.com
5 – Let this be the thread to establish Shabazz’ supreme awesomeness.
6 – This is a very good album. Holocene, Calgary, Beth/Rest. Amazing songs.
7a – another amazing summer evening album, that I appreciate even more because it slips a certain, almost unseen, amount of darkness into proceedings until you listen attentively.
7b – ditto summer evening album ditto
7c – these are all plays of his new 3 track ep Glacial Melt – recorded in New Zealand. There are few artists around who are as profoundly influenced by their surroundings as Sean Conrad
7d – last, but by no means least in the lucky number 7’s this week – Ben John Power’s off of |Fuck Button’s new twinkly dark drone project Blanck Mass. It’s a good one. Not quite Emeralds or Kevin Drumm but it’s very potent.
