I Don’t Do Lists pt5

Last year was a strange year and that is probably an understatement but there were many great releases despite all the difficulties. I usually post throughout December as many as possible however due to the situation I thought I would extend it throughout January and I’ve still only barely scrapped the surface. These 20 have been posted on twitter this month…there may be more : )

Sunday Ambience

Hildegard Westerkamp – Kits Beach Soundwalk (1989)


ENTER
by itta

ambient, deep listening, drone, healing music, new age

It Wouldn’t Be Christmas here without…

Finally, made it to Christmas eve and probably, like many, I feel that it’s been a hard slog of a year, more so for some, especially those working in the Entertainment and Hospitality sectors. If you are able, and I know it’s hard, try and buy someone’s’ music this Christmas. Many artists are struggling and a ka=ching, however small, could mean more than you will ever know.

I’m going to post a couple of usual suspects, an old playlist that’s still good, and also a crazy happy new release from Xylitol that made me smile : )





Signing off now for a few days. Wishing you ALL, whoever you are, wherever you are, hopefully, a Peaceful and Happy Christmas. O / Feminatronic

I DON’T DO LISTS…PT4

Phew…Just scraping the tip of the iceberg with these. As usual, no preferences, order, rank, whatever…

#Throwback 17/12/2020

Everything is so throw away nowadays and has to be new and shiny. Yes, that’s fine but don’t be afraid to listen to something a little older than a year released.

This weeks’ throwback releases are –

Sea Of Negligence
by Dorit Chrysler
2011

electronic, experimental, ambient, experimental pop, soundtrack, synthpop, theremin, thereminmusic


Alle Sorgenti Delle Civiltà (The Sources Of Civilisation)
by Kema
2016

library music, psychedelic

I Don’t Do Lists but…pt3

By now, I think you may have a good idea of my Christmas box for those of you who land here and browse. Hopefully, you will leave and give a few things a listen and what’s more, actually buy something as a gift to yourself and importantly, to keep some musicians heads above the water, so to speak. Every little counts : )

Here is the next instalment of #released2020 and as usual, there is no ranking, no preferences, no order.

Happy Listening.

I Don’t Do Lists but…pt 2

Is it only the 14th December? There will be a few of these by the sounds of it.

This is the next collection of 20 releases, and it only covers the days December 8th to 12th twitter posts and I’ve barely scraped the surface of #released2020. It’s been a horrendous year for many but the releases have been eclectic, at times challenging and luckily, numerous.

In case you missed my explanation – Every year on social media and elsewhere, the big sites publish their end of year best of lists and this has always made me feel uncomfortable. On many, they are made up of the big names and labels, not very diverse and often narrow in scope. I also have a thing about the subjectivism of lists and rank. What one person says is great, another can’t see the fuss, often resulting in animosity and division…..Isn’t there enough in the world?

I decided a couple of years ago to try and cover as many of the new releases as possible, given my personal constraints, and have posted them under the moniker of I don’t do lists but this was released….This year I just used the #released2020 on twitter.

As usual, no order, no preferences, no rank, not exhaustive,….It’s easy…

Reblog – Xyla ~ Ways — a closer listen

Can’t better the review….Thanks ACL for pointing me in the right direction again : )

Electronic music is cold and soulless. You’ve heard this truism from an acquaintance. They are wearing a Pink Floyd shirt. They refuse to believe that knobs and buttons have the same emotional capacities as strummed guitars. Point them to this debut album from San Francisco’s Xyla. This gorgeous record serves a kind of sonic affogato. […]
