the wurst edits gang has inducted yet another ny disco acolyte to the fold, the inimitable irishman in new york, eamon harkin. known for wild dj sets not to mention his innovative bookings at such parties as sunday best and fun, harkins no stranger to dance music. no wonder the mans shared bills with such legends as afrika bambaataa, juan atkins, grandmaster flash, the egyptian lover, and kevin saunderson. on his debut single, the man heads straight into peaktime territory with the sinister sounds of john boy, where synth toms jump out of the shadows only to punctuate an incredibly propulsive groove. innit takes a decidedly different turn down edits lane, rejuvenating an early 90s house gem in magnificently wurst fashion. extremely limited edition with handpainted covers
top tip for boards of canada fans! gorgeous isolation wrapped in electric memories. 8-track electronica for homesick time travelers. nothing left to abandon is a slow rendering of brooding introspections and imaginary spaces. memories, visions, eroded philosophies, tragedies in a few words. a childhood of livid skies, barren escarpments, homeless wastes. an absorbing contemplation of unlikely beauty and dusty melancholy that intersects with the creative territories of vangelis, boards of canada, klaus schulze, and ulrich schnauss, and the musings of joe frank and robert ashley. clocolan is south african-born composer emlyn ellis addison. a long formal training in music, his work centers on original writings and the found sounds of abandoned ideologies--generations of radicals and skeptics searching for meaning. from his childhood in south africa--a landscape of neglected hinterlands, eroded topology, unconquered vastness--emerged clocolan s homesick, lo-fidelity electronica, expansive themes lost in the background noise of human affairs.
hidden project with roots in house and acid. a side from a houseband, house modern style with roots in the 60s and 70s, after a long time on promo supported by several djs finally it ends up on a wax. b side is a completely different story with 303 acid line over 909, jam and roll.

when conor oberst fled the mid western winter for tepoztlan, mexico in early 2008, his plan was to record a collection of songs in beautiful surroundings with some friends. the band he put together for the recording sessions - all done in an adobe house half way up a mountain - was released last year as conor oberst, his first non bright eyes release since 2001. the band then took to the road as conor oberst and the mystic valley band, named for valle m stico where the recording took place. while touring in support of conor oberst, the talented 6 piece began to write new songs, each band member sharing their compositions and working them out on the road. energized by the live performances, and eager to capture the synergy they felt onstage, oberst took his musical compadres to sonic ranch studios in tornillo, texas outside of el paso to capture these gems on tape. in recording sessions in november and december - the mystic valley band recorded 16 songs and this time they shared the songwriting. the result, the sparkling outer south is the first album credited to conor oberst and the mystic valley band and features the fruits of their enticing musical symbiosis. obersts songwriting and delivery remain an engaging presence, but the addition of songs by taylor hollingsworth (guitar), nik freitas (guitar) and jason boesel (drums) make for a multi textured and colorful collaboration. along with oberst, hollingsworth, freitas and boesel, the mystic valley band includes macey taylor (bass) and nathaniel walcott (piano/keyboard).
