[Music] New Post Punk & Drone from Magnetic Ghost, Remora, & Luka Fisher on Silber
A press release from our friends at Silber Media:
Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you all are well. Doing my best to be thankful for the relatively good place I’m in even though life has been routinely difficult this year. But hey, life is supposed to be hard work anyway right? We’ve got three new releases ready for you now & then in just a few days the Christmas EPs will be ready. Maybe more stuff too as I’m trying to get out all the stuff that’s been waiting on me, some for over a year now.
So first up is Magnetic Ghost’s debut Loss Molecules. It’s a bit of a post punk & post rock hybrid. The thing it reminds me most of is Windsor for the Derby’s Difference & Repetition, which is an album that gave me a lot of ideas about music. Anyway, you should check it out. I agreed to put it out after hearing the first three minutes.

Luka Fisher put out a 5in5 last year & he recorded another little EP for us (this one 3 songs in 7 minutes). Improvisational drone collaborations. Worth checking out.

[Music] On Sublime Frequencies’ Burkina Faso Box Set
The Hum blog does a wonderful job highlighting a new box set released by Sublime Frequencies covering the music of the West African country of Burkina Faso.
[Music] Shye Ben Tzur, Jonny Greenwood & The Rajastan Express – Junun
This pleasant surprise came from out of nowhere. Israeli composer and multi-instrumentalist Shye Ben Tzur collaborates here with Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood and the marvelous Rajasthan Express for a fusion of three continents.
soundstreamsunday: “Waltz of the New Moon” by The Incredible String Band — Progarchy
Although there is the potential today for historically reconstructing The Incredible String Band as a folksy psychedelic sideshow, the core group of Mike Heron and Robin Williamson were among the most imaginative and deeply schooled of the musicians emerging out of Britain’s folk revival in the late 1960s. Succored by Joe Boyd and Elektra records, the band […]

[Music] Bing Crosby – White Christmas (Full Album)
After launching with Bing and David Bowie, here’s the King of the Crooners singing traditional Christmas tunes.
[Music] Taylor Deupree & Marcus Fischer – Wake
Taylor Deupree is practically a legend in the world of electronica. Marcus Fischer is a very new name to me. Judging by how well these two work together, I can’t wait to hear more collaborations like this one.
[Music] Bing Crosby & David Bowie – The Little Drummer Boy (Peace On Earth)
Expect a fair amount of Christmas music over the next month. Not a flood, but enough. Having two charmers like David Bowie and Bing Crosby launch the festivities should set off a pleasant holiday season.
[Music] Ghoula – Hlib el Ghoula
Ghoula is an arist from Tunisia who makes an aural salad out of Hip-Hop, electronic music, North African ethnic instrumentation and whatever else he can throw in. It’s nice to hear real fusion still being made.
[Music] Vyacheslav Potapov (VP) – Water World
Prog is alive and well in… Kazakhstan?! Yes! Thanks to incredible labels highlighting talent worldwide like Cuneiform and MoonJune Records, we’re finding out about avant-progressive music from places like Indonesia, Belarus, and other faraway locales. VP is based in Kazakhstan’s former capital city, Almaty, and his music reminds me of such groups like Univers Zero, Art Zoyd, and modern bands like Rational Diet from Belarus. We need to hear much more from them.
