My listening habits over the past month have been mainly shaped by the arrival of two fine new LPs from Subtext label boss Paul Jebanasam (Continuum) and former Vex’d founder Roly Porter (Third Law). Both these albums have been on heavy rotation here for some weeks now at unsubscriber towers and I have to say I’m torn between deciding which one is my favourite although as it stands, both are candidates for my album of 2016 award. I can recommend both LPs highly to the more adventurous listener.
Because of the distinctly ‘challenging’ nature of both these recordings, I have found myself frequenting the more experimental sections of my music library for this month’s source material. What I ended up with was a collection of mainly electronic experiments with some avant jazz, drone and tape manipulations thrown in for good measure. Because of the resulting thematic nature of the finished audio sequence I have subtitled this mix Faulty Electronics.
What you’ll get after downloading the file and loading it into your media player of choice is an eighty minute sonic tapestry designed to provoke, confound, confuse, surprise and create a multitude of different mood states along the way. I’m not saying that your journey will be an easy one this month but I can guarantee that it will ultimately be a rewarding experience.
Feel free as always to drop me a comment after listening and let me know your thoughts.
Last month’s audio sequence is still available below and is recommended for those of you with a more psychedelic outlook, it has been downloaded many times by the inhabitants of Trondheim in Norway who clearly can’t get enough of this whacked out stuff!
