The Listening Club - 17th May 2015

Hey all,

Wow, suns out here, quick sort #LC and I can run and... aw shit, it's gone in again. Ah well, I'm typing now. Hope you're getting some of what makes you all happy, anyways. Not actually that bad here, tho @nessiest is still in NZ, and while the cat's away.... well, the mice sit at the computer playing with their musical things, eating beans on toast. Yes, folks, I'm that predictable.

Fortunately, ol' #listeningclub is, as usual, far from predictable - what with @akx chilling everyone last week with Lowlight's "Always & Forever - Americana 1" mixtape. Cheers to Aarni for the pick and for flipping the frisb across to @saucer for this week's pick, and here he is...

"First, I'd like to congratulate @akx on earning the “That beer was so fine I forgot @saucer was up just 8 weeks ago, and that his pick was, uh...” badge on untapped!

My 3rd time doing this and still awful at reading the room, as it were... aiming for multidimensional Venn diagram intersection perfection for each of our multivariate tastes... which remain mysterious... hurts my brain. Aua! as my German friend says.

(Dude, you say, you're _overthinking it_, but then I'm all like I'd rather try to _read_ the effing room than _empty_ it. Let's just say I keep Demdike Stare, Jelena Glazova, Klangstabil, Isolat Pattern, Government Alpha, and La Monte Young for my own time, ok? Ok.)

Boring story short, I circled through a dozen genres and came back to one of the first records I'd thought of. It's suitable counterpoint to my previous two picks. Good for putting a baby down, if the baby likes subtle, jazzy Americana, performed with heart and mastery.

The track order here is for the vinyl version and I added a little silence between sides.

Hope you enjoy."
