David Bowie's Blackstar is wonderful. I'd been putting off listening to it for obvious reasons, and while it was hard to get through as a result, I'm glad I did. Besides this album, Queen's Innuendo and J Dilla's Donuts, are there any other memorable albumls involving the musician(s) facing their mortality?
Leonard Cohen's 'You Want It Darker'

Skip Spence's "Oar" isn't one but sounds like it should be

Warren Zevon's My Ride's Here/The Wind. George Harrison's Brainwashed. And I will always believe that this was the crux behind Dylan's John Wesley Harding, however mythical his bike accident or not.

I briefly had it in my mind that I would buy every Morricone soundtrack I could find, but they just kept popping up and were always expensive so that was a short lived project.

Ended up with:

The Great Silence
The Iron Prefect
The Humanoid
Almost Human
Violent City
Teorema
Bird With the Crystal Plumage
The Master Touch
Space: 1999

and a basic compilation with the obvious stuff

Going through the new deluxe Elektra reissues of Stereolab, and I've found something relevatory in the demos for what I'd usually consider a minor effort, Sound Dust. These early takes are spare and delicate, and they're better representations of Sadier and Hanson's harmonic beauty. Part of the criticism of later Stereolab is their tendency to really pile on the synthetic goop and loops and sometimes bury some lovely songs in lattices of digital dross. That's probably why I tend to prefer the relatively minimalistic stuff like "Velvet Water" or "Black Arts". It's nice to embrace what could have been a more placid Stereolab LP.

After spending the last couple of weeks in a Stereolab stew of sweet fuzz and nostalgia, my overview hasn't changed radically, but subtley enough. Fans of their later cut/paste swish can fight me.


Switched On Stereolab - 9
Peng!/Lo-Fi - 9
The Groop Played Space Age Bachelor Pad Music - 7
Transient Random Noise Bursts with Announcements - 10
Refried Ectoplasm - 10
Mars Audiac Quintet - 8
Music For the Amorphous Body Center - 8
Emperor Tomato Ketchup - 10
Flourescences - 6
Dots And Loops - 7
Aluminum Tunes - 8
Cobra and Phases Groop Play Voltage in the Milky Night - 9
Future of the Microbe Hunters - 7
Sound Dust - 8
Margerine Eclipse - 7
Fab Four Suture - 5
Chemical Chords - 6
----
ABC Music (BBC) - 9
Oscillons From The Anti-Sun (EPs) - 10
Not Music (etc) - 8

Good scores, but I'd give Dots and Loops a higher one. It was the first Stereolab album I listened to, so there may some "introduction bias" (if such a thing exists), but I think it's on par with my other favorite, Emperor Tomato Ketchup.

I may have introduction bias as well, but I still prefer the earlier focus on kosmische, drone and trance tones, like My Bloody Valentine if someone had (mostly) switched their guitars with a palette of fuzz organs. ETK features the best balance of these aesthetics, but Dots was the polarizing point where older fans felt they had put the cut/paste collages to the fore.

Around the same time, there was a similar polarization with the band Tortoise, whose TNT went well beyond the more organic group-play of their first two LPs, relying on the same kind of digital permutations that fans had hoped would be reserved for their 12" remixes. TNT is also a stronger album than it was received at the time, but it arguably doesn't measure up to its predecessors either.

I've been revisiting Neil Cicierega's mashup/remix albums Mouth Sounds, Mouth Silence and Mouth Moods. They're still hilarious after all these years. They're all on YouTube.

These are probably my favorite tracks:

Just seeing this now, and heck yes. Neil's fantastic.

This is my favorite. Simple, epic, hilarious, weirdly moving:

I don't know where else to post this, so I'll just do it here.

A friend of mine co-produced this doc a couple of years ago about the Belgian New Beat movement called The Sound of Belgium. You can now watch it online for free, until the fifth of April at least. I recommend it.

Depeche Mode - Ultra

Listened to this ages ago and thought I didn't like it, but no, that was Exciter (probably my least favorite from the Mode that I've heard), but Ultra's got some tracks that still slap. "The Bottom Line" and "Barrel of a Gun" and "Home" and "It's No Good" especially.



That funky bassline at the start! Gah!
