Gloomy Sundays VII

Skipped out on a couple of these, but I'm back now with even more tunes to drag you down before monday, So without further ado let's get started.

John Lautermilch - The Decision (2009)

More UNKLE with well known sad boy Thom Yorke on vocals. There's nothing really like it on the album, but that's not to say it's bad it's just a bit of a left from the trip-hop vibes of the rest of the LP.

Winter means more OPN. Nothing like analogue ambient brilliance to see the cold in. One of the shorter bits from Rifts though it feels like it lasts an eternity. Lopatin keeps its sedate here, there's no surprise arpeggios or descent into noise like some of his other tracks, just lush sounds throughout.

David Firth of Fat-Pie fame has been making a splash as of late with animating a video for Flying Lotus and all, few people seem to know he also does music under many a psudeonym. Much like his cartoons there's often a dark streak in them.

Ilictronix Radio 2(EVK Radio 3)


Konnichiwa Reader senpai

This is EVK RADIO 3

A bit more heavy hitting than the last go round, after all the whole world loves some 808s.


Shouts to Claude for the art!


Be Easy,

Workin' Workin'

Hello I have been working all day on videos and PDFs here is some music that has seen me through those tasks and also some art for your eyeballs.

Syd Mead - Costume Concept for Yori (Tron)

Roulé remains a top quality source of house for y'all to enjoy. Especially when it's got one half of Daft Punk behind it. Here's Together again, best put to use in the encore for Alive 2007. Still a solid track on it's own tho.

Jazz is always good. Who doesn't like smooth jazz? Here's some from Squarepusher. Not much like this on the album sadly, but what there is a joy to listen to. 'Pusher is very flexible when it comes to sound, and tracks like this only make that more apparent.

Along that same line, nobody can hate Ambivalence Avenue, the LP is just so well done that I still have it in regular rotation since I got in in '10. Here's a solid exhibit of a Bibio instrumental, if you did it go and listen to the full LP, you won't be disappointed.

You've Got Red On You

Been waiting to make this post for a long time. you know Weebl? of Badger, Badger, Badger and Amazing Horse fame? well for a long time he's been running a fictional synthpop group dubbed Savlonic. He's got a well documented love for bands like Ladytron, and the main character of the band is even based on Ron Mael of Sparks so that should give you some pointers in terms of sound.



Now it goes without saying that like all things Weebl these are essentially parody tunes, but some of them could pass for more serious ones. It's kinda a shame really cos he has a knack for catchy tunes and if he really wanted to could easily make a serious record. Still love them as they are though, there's some amazing lyricism that makes for some non-sequitur verses. Have a selection of my favourites from their recently released kickstarted album Red:
