It’s been a couple of months, and in defiance of all logic, music continued to be released unabated, unheeding my lack of ability to buy it. For my records and your possible interest, here are some picks from the last few months. Get in there:

Some sites start their best of’s in November. Some like to leave it to January. Mick, to his credit, came through with some picks in January. I’m fitting to top them all by finally revealing some of my favourite records.
Last year went by in a fugue of work, study and personal life but amidst it all I somehow still amassed music. Judicious use of juno’s email reminders, bandcamp wantlists, and the discogs app have seen me in a constant state of purchasing. For simplicities sake I’m …

Some new music recently from Ninja Tune – a label that I’ve always loved and been into up and down over the years depending on my level of weed intake and/or interest in the kind of sample based trip hop I initially associated them with. For long stretches I haven’t paid much attention to them but they’re still going after 27 years so respect for that at least. This year however they seem to have some interesting releases lined up with the two I’m about to mention …

Finally out floating around on vinyl is Superpitcher’s rework of Joakim’s cover of Neil Young’s “on the beach”. For awhile in the mid 00s Superpitcher was one of my favourite producers and while I no longer check his stuff religiously I have a soft spot for this mix.

Here’s the original Neil Young which I’ve always enjoyed too.

Here’s something from last year, Villalobos having a lengthy reshake of Aussie experimentalist Oren Ambarchi on the latter’s tasty black truffle label. Submit yourself to its murky depths!

Been a bit quiet on the sounds of the summer here – but the flow of music just doesn’t stop. After quite a bit of back and forthing a stack of vinyl was ordered, assembled and gratefully received at casa del benny.
A highlight of the order is the (slightly) mysterious “Thoughtstream” – by Dices and AEM Rhythm Cascade. The first release on new Scottish label “12th Isle”, the contents are an eclectic mix of hazy ambient, warm synths, and some more beat focused work. Bit …

Regular reader of my blatherings might have seen me mention International Feel before, which has quietly developed into one of my favourite labels. Starting last year they’ve released a run of albums on single vinyl, and so far all have been great, beginning with Australia’s (?) Len Leise, continuing with CFCF’s “on holiday” which I recommended to ninja for his holiday, and now this record from Wolf Muller and Cass, which is a slow moving ambient balm to the various vexations of the modern world, good for summer afternoons, late …
