I just discovered this guy Luis Alberto Spinetta, from Argentina. Look him up! Sadly, he passed away last February. I've been perusing his catalog on YouTube, I've found a lot of interesting material, especially early stuff from his band Invisible to later work with Spinetta Jade. I've become obsessed with this song of his, North of Nothing, which I'm posting here. If anyone knows Spanish and wants to translate the lyrics that would be awesome. Google Translate had interesting results but you know how that is. I am haplessly attempting to teach myself Spanish verb conjugations right now. The automatic English translation of this wikipedia page for his album Kamikaze was also interesting, which I'm guessing were liner notes maybe?: http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamikaze_(%C3%A1lbum)

Norte de Nada: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dElEckuINQ


Suben y suben las aguas
hacia el fuego
voy a buscar los astros
para siempre
las sombras esta vez
se olvidaran

Leve la bruma, triste de las grietas
se encontrará con vidas
que han quedado
las aguas esta vez
no bajaran
Oh! voy al norte de nada
donde sopla el viento mortal
donde las cenizas vuelven al alma

En torno al fondo intacto
están las nubes
lejos de aquellos mundos
de codicia
eterno es el retorno y el final

Oh! voy al norte de nada
donde sopla el viento mortal
donde las cenizas vuelven al alma
hoy se endulzan los cuerpos
como se hace el agua fatal
y si no comprendes las piel se marcha

Ilústrame
distribúyeme
no ves que el sol
se metió en su vaina?

Oh! voy al norte de nada
donde sopla el viento mortal
donde las cenizas vuelven al alma
hoy se endulzan los cuerpos
como se hace el agua fatal
y si no comprendes las piel se marcha

Lúcrame
amenízame
no ves que el sol
se metió en su vaina?

Oh! voy al norte de nada
donde sopla el viento mortal
donde las cenizas vuelven al alma
ve y endulza los cuerpos
como lo hace el agua fatal
y si no comprendes la piel estalla

Voy al norte de nada
donde sopla el viento mortal
donde las cenizas vuelven al alma

Voy al norte de nada
donde sopla el viento mortal
donde las cenizas vuelven al alma
uh, uh, uh, uh... la, la, la...
donde las cenizas vuelven al alma

Sorry, I can't help with the Spanish!

Listening to the self-titled Fresh & Onlys LP, god I love these guys. :truluv: :truluv: :truluv: :truluv:

"Peacock and Wing" just puts me in a swooning daze and I have to loop it on repeat for awhile with great big romantic stars in my eyes.

Had to book the Music Hall of WIlliamsburg show even though it's the night before I'm due to fly over for a UK visit! Going to be tired, but so worth it.

I have to thank you for this. It's my swooning, belly-flopping, dirty love song of the day. I'm sure my neighbour will thank you in person as well when you come visit! :festive:

I saw Wymond Miles last week with Young Prisms. I think it was Madam Ant that mentioned him in this thread so when I saw he was in LA I decided to check. He's pretty awesome live! Definitely enjoyed the show even though I had only listened to his album a few times.

Cool, Ricky! I'm quite attached to the album, it's got a kind of 80's gothic and baroque pop shimmer to it, and he has the huge teased hair to match! Very melancholic as he was coming to terms with personal tragedy at the time as well, but not depressingly so. Different to Fresh & Onlys but definitely with the same quality standard, I feel.
I like what I've heard from Young Prisms, too, "Runner" was my favorite. Would have loved that gig, will have to catch him next time he's near me!

Ohhhhh he is going to LOVE us! :lol: Going to be a week long boozy pajama party with chunes cranking constantly. 8D

So it changes 't-u-n-e-s' to 'chunes' by default? Oh well, same thing I suppose! :silly:

I've been listening to Tashaki Miyaki for a bit. I don't think they are doing anything completely new, but still enjoy the pretty vocals and visuals.

At first glance I thought splatter maestro Takashi Miike decided to make a pop record!
They've been described as a 'female Jesus & Mary Chain', that's enough to get my attention, will certainly check them out.

Listening to all the gorgeous dead boyfriend/girlfriend songs on Joe Meek's Alchemist of Pop collection.

Autechre - Laughing Quarter (from the 1997 EP Envane)

I guess this could be described as proto-brostep, but I fucking hate brostep, and this is fucking awesome.

Though the only correct description would be that it's Autechre.

Love Autechre - you have inspired me to listen to Incunabula again, followed by LP5 and Tri Repetae++, never grow tired of those.

I find their EPs a much less demanding listening experience, which is why I enjoy them a lot more. My favorites are Envane, Anvil Vapre and Gantz Graf (of course).
And I liked the Quaristice LP for its loose, splintered structure, I found that pretty refreshing.

Speaking of loose and splintered albums, that same year saw the release of another such record - Skeletal Lamping by of Montreal. I'm kind of an oM fan, but that album was a lot to chew on.
I revisit it from time to time, and I'm certain that it's one of their best, so many awesome/crazy moments on that one.
