More stuff about the music and stories on this week’s Melodica.
A weekly blog loosely based around the Melodica radio show with more information, pictures, links and comment. Melodica chart on Juno Download: here. That Fuzzy Feeling: James Blake – Limit To Your Love Underground hero James Blake makes a bid for the charts with his wobbly cover version of Feist’s song through his own Atlas Records via multinational Universal. In the promo shots he looks young enough and pretty enough to be in a boy band. Will he be the poster boy for the post-dubstep, post-job generation? Nearly tune of the week: Seams – Tourist A fine, dare I say, must-have EP from Seams, aka producer James Welch. who spent the summer in Berlin recording environmental sounds on an old tape recorder and his mobile phone. The result is four tracks of beautifully atmospheric electronic music. It’s the proverbial musical journey an audio snapshot of a time and place. It’s out now on Pictures Music. Buy the whole EP here. Futureproof Product: Nicolas Jaar & Friends – Ines I got hold of a copy of the Ines album memory stick / necklace and it is a thing of beauty. Is this the future for recorded product or just a nice novelty? Probably more novelty, but it would make a fine festive present. Explorer’s Club I’ve been playing tunes from this series of experimental downloads all year. You sign up, then each month they send you an EP of music with a particular theme. This month, in issue 11, the explorers travel from Montreal to Nuuk. The artwork is always lovely and as well as tunes there are products to explore here. Gil Scott Heron vs Jamie XX Jamie, the programmer/producer from XX, bascially the one you won’t recognise, has re-produced the Gil Scott Heron album I”m New Here. The New Version is called We’re New Here. The track I have heard, New York Is Killing Me, is awesomely bouncy and beautiful. You can check it out here.

All the way there and back again

5th December 2010 Comments Off on All the way there and back again

or Some vague impression Dear Dear, I went to Bristol in another attempt to go clear. And again it didn’t happen because it’s only good when it’s scary. Dear Dear, I went all the way there and back again for the sake of something I can’t explain for the love of music and the love of life. All the way there and all the way back again for some vague impression some sense of something happening just out of view.
