Weekend Reflections

Things slowing down and had time to think. Might not have been the best of ideas but hey whatever cannae change anything now so musn't dwell. Now that slightly depressing glimpse into my life is over let's talk tunes again.

Pierre Alechinsky - Pavan One Thousand Regrets (1971)

Been on that Ford & Lopatin train again, shame it seems lke we won't see another LP from them for a while, I dig out this and their earlier work as Games every so often and fall in love with the retro aesthetic they have going on. The LP, Channel Pressure is a lot less sample based than the Games work and features a lot more of Joel Ford too, definitely check it out if this tickles yer ears.

Also found an old copy of one of Evan's mixtape type dealies he put out. Was always nice to get a mediafire link from him every now and then and have me instrumental hip hop needs catered to for a while. It's been a while since I've had one but I don't mind, looking over the stack of stuff he's given me for free, it'll tide me by for a few years more methinks.

Ev K - Morning

Also Nightmares On Wax has been back in rotation too. I mean, he never really left but still. After hearing about how one of my co-workers worked on the design of an early album of his I dug them all out in full force once again. Thought So... always seems to get overlooked in the grand scheme of NOW stuff, but it's home to some of my favourties. I'll have to get around to fixing up all the Warped posts sometime next year and see if my fave picks are still the same.
