(Sound)Cloud 9

Time for the daily change up I do, unfortunately my feed hasn't been so kind this time so I had to do some digging. Regardless, here we go: I'm always down for some more experimental electronic stuff and I've been meaning to check out The Flashbulb for some time now, last I heard he was on hard times cos somebody stole some gear from him. Turns out he has a new LP and it is chock full of lush sounds and the like that made me like the man in the first place. I might have to jump on this one very soon:

On a similar line a tune from Funkstörung's new LP was meant to be here. Alas, Monkeytown only has like 40 second previews up. So instead have one of my favourites from them from an older LP, their upload is pretty neat because it's the full album intercut with little bits of interviews about it. Not sure it'd be good for regular listening, but a nice touch here.

And finally it's no secret I adore vocoders but at current they are back in a big bad way. This post is also a reminder that I need to get my arse in gear and get the album this is from. Röyksopp's goodbye to the traditional album format is beautifully bittersweet, especially when they've been in my listening queue since like 2002. If anything I should be thanking them.
