Thought it would be nice to see some pals out shopping yesterday, turns out they were both disease ridden and now I have caught their ills. So this post is going up a little later than usual because I have been asleep 80% of today. Another downtempo selection to ease my aching head.
Vasily Polenov - The Ill Woman (1886)
First off is the last part of the broadcast collection I needed. Their debut on Warp, a collection of singles and B Sides from their singles on Duophonic. It flows incredibly well given its complied nature, and is definitely wearing the 60's influence on it's sleeve, even moreso than on The Noise Made By People. I've loved this song for a long time, much of the album has melancholy lyrics but I very much empathise with the ones on here, especially during my early days of Uni.

Slammed a load of OPN on my phone on a whim the other day, and it's come in mighty handy today. I still need to pick up OPN's newer stuff but I refuse because it's marked up to like £15 at the minute because its so popular. I'm more than content to go over the mountain of material that Rifts has to offer anyway.

And the granddaddy of ambient makes an appearance once again. Dug out Another Green World again after spying a youtube comment comparing this to Fischerspooner's Tone Poem. I do love Eno's work, I just don't post it to much outside of the ambient series because it doesn't exactly fit. Making an exception today and besides, there's some synth stuff going on here so it qualifies.
