Springtime

Just got to the first bit of time off since the start of this year (and even then I still have work to do). Waking up late with no responsibilities other than some video editing which I like doing anyway is pretty sweet, as usual here's a slice of my daily soundtrack.

Jim Rosenquist - Tosca (2009)

Kicking off with another bit of MF Doom's Special Herbs Instrumental series. I've only just begun to get tired of it and should really grab some more instrumental goodness, but there are some that stay just as sweet every time, see below.

Onto deeper stuff now. My love for OPN is well documented sure, but I've been digging the FRKWYS EP revently. A collab between minimalist veteramn David Borden, James Ferraro, Laurel Halo, Samuel Godin and of course Lopatin himself taking part in some live Jam sessions. By far and away the highlight is the last track, an awesome demonstration of their skills coming together.

And finally the original penultimate track from Psyence Fiction. It's a bit of a break away from the usual trip hop vibe, but with Thom Yorke on the featuring credits and that almost post-rock build up it's a pretty spectacular way to end the tracklist for sure.
