Sorry about the wait, I just had the domain renewed for another 2 years, so the ilictronix train will keep on rolling until 2017! And with that out of the way I am clear to post again without worry of the site going down. Here's this week's jams.

Tom Wesselmann -Interior #2 (1964)

A pleasant surprise this morning as I sat down to edit, more Pretty Lights. His debut was by far my favourite but the follow up, Filling Up The City Skies does have it's moments that bring it up to that level. Take Change Is Gonna Come for example, I could listen to that intro forever, gorgeously smooth even when the beats come crashing in a 1:30.

Next is the song I had in mind when doing the renewal process. Much like the PL tune above, the intro for this one is lush, if a little quiet. Every time I turn my volume up to enjoy it only to jump out of my skin when the beats come in. Flashbulb records have been very hard for me to get a hold of, but when I do it's worth it.

And once again the opening track for Shobaleader One continues to be one of my all time favourites coming up on 5 years since it was released. Other than the mastering being a little quiet there is not much I can fault it for. I may be a little biased because I love me some vocoders but still, check it out if you're interested in what 'Pusher can do when he puts aside the Amen Break and sets his site on Space R&B.
