My Posty is Toasty
Well while the mail man continues to take his sweet time delivering my boatload of records and my patience reaches an all time low, here are a couple of nice thangs to keep things rolling. This is a nice simple psychedelic jam from Permanent Vacation's swell second volume of Space Oddities. Although it's much more primitive, I smell hints of early 70s Floyd - the same kind of raw simplicity in the real grooved out sections of Echoes. I can picture a band of shirtless college students in flares with some cheap marshall-lookalike cabs and the assembly hall drum kit trying to replicate Live in Pompeii, not without talent, and coming up with something fine like this.
Andre Perry & Louis Delacour - New Life [buy]
Big wows, quite unhappy I haven't heard about Melbourne dude-duo Sleep D (previously Sleepy Dino) and enjoyed their deep deep deeeeeep sounds before. Everything I've heard so far is just fantastic and this track in particular really noodles my poodle. Throbbing thick house music with warm bass radiation pulsating and penetrating, this is perfect winter club music! The gents are releasing a new single soon on Audio Parallax Records which is equally toasty, albeit more subdued and soulful. Keep as many eyes as you can on these dudes.
Sleep D - Buff [buy]
Hrmm well the latest Black Cow release is sadly not up to the usual ball-meltingly high standard thanks to a pretty boring A-side (although the crediting indicates it's not one of the usual crew?) however it's saved by a real nice slow, mildly hip-hoppy, stripped back soul jam thing on the flip. Super cruisy and funky with a tiny bit of respectfully restrained beat juggling spliced in here and there, I'm really a big fan of this one. Actually I'm surprised it's the first cut that has any real hip hop flavour, coming from the Jazzy Sport crew, and although more often than not it's not my cup of tea, it's quite refreshing. Still holding on to its 'best edits label around' title, but the next one had better be goooood!
Black Cow - Smiling Kungfushi [buy]
And just 'cos I feel guilty for being so cheap with the number of musics on here, an old favourite proudly stolen from the always amazing AOR Disco - a classic Fleetwood Mac edit by Swedish bro Mau. Too good.
Fleetwood Mac - Brown Eyes (Maulongated Version)
In other fine news, yes Harvey's Locussolus album is out and about - LN-CC have a sweet limited run of 100 exclusive screen printed albums plus a sew on biker patch designed by Harv for bonus lols, they're doing a comp where you can win one of ten which is nifty so do check it out.
Playing up in Brissy tomorrow if any of you are Queenslanders (boooo), come have a drank!
