Playing tracks by
Planningtorock, Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Death Grips, Nochexxx feat. Sensational and more.
Whilst hammering this new album from The Caretaker, An Empty Bliss Beyond This World, an interesting set of characters sprang to mind... 1920s stuff from Jelly Roll Morton, Dorothy Provine, Louis Armstrong, and The Paul Whiteman Orchestra. Musical hall bits from Marie Lloyd and Dan Leno, and a track from player-piano-mutilator Conlan Nancarrow that captures the same eerie undead qualities as is splattered all over An Empty Bliss Beyond This World. From more recent times we've got minimal tape loop disintegration from William Basinski, punctuated piano experimentation from Susumu Yokota and Radicalfashion, melancholy strings from Zdenek Liska, disfigured brass sounds from Colin Stetson, pan-static techno from Andy Stott, and a little Venetian Snares.
That aside, there's more Prefuse 73, with Zola Jesus, classic dub from The Tonettes, a bit of crack hop from Death Grips, some timeless slip hop from Nochexxx, and Planningtorock serve us up some saxy no-wave plod. Enjoy x
