1 – still can't stop listening to Narrows. It's released next week and I expect to see it get hyped; Bowie / Numan retro style with nu-retro chillwave and more. Pretty addictive.
2 – played Relationship of Command to my 3 year old. He went fairly nuts
3 – Got their album after End of the Road. It's quite nice, got some good lyrics and lovely harmonies.
4 – Incredible classical drone album from Stars of the Lid member Adam Wiltzie and pianist Dustin O’Halloran, as you're probably already aware. On Friday night I played this then Nest, Balam Acab, Future Shuttle and FRKWYS Vol.7 one after the other and I think I did some permanent realigning of some neural networks.
5 – Chillwavey electronica that maps an afternoon in the life of. D/L for free: http://robelsynthesia.bandcamp.com/album/neon-island
6a – First couple of plays of Wander/Wonder and I think I might get hooked in. Doesn't sound like an electronic record at all, so lush and organic sounding; like he mic'd up a petri dish.
6b – Awesome psychedelic acid-folk album, similar if not better to all those 60's bands from UK and USA. Sounds like both sides of the pond and beyond.
8 – First full ep from NY based synth-space duo is a total trancer. Produced by Blondes, indebted to just about any synth player ever and very heavy on the gorgeous vocals.
9 – New WITTR. OMG! USBM FTW.
10 – The title track on Passed Me By is some kind of sublime elevated techno, no?
