Dot Plaza

Do they dot the plazas and cross the quads?

The picture of his bedroom on Soundcloud, shows a couple of sophisticated and (Nord) expensive keyboard synthesisers, so his choice of a minimal, space invader-like soundscape is not made because he has only that option.

I was fairly comfortable (until his double tracked whoa whoa whoas) with the historical, naive vocal styles but this just doesn't have the wit and originality of LCD Soundsystem, Television, Lou Reed et al.

Bit of a mess really, but oddly endearing. I was enjoying the Roadrunner groove, when it went into something altogether frothier - but then it kind of peters out into ash-aahs. Some interesting ideas that don't yet quite gel into one song imo.

I know you're all dying to know what I saw last night. Tons! And there were fireworks over the sea. All good. A quick name check: Songe, Plaitum, Ider, Chinah, James Hersey... Plus a couple that really stood out for me.

1. Sturla Atlas - right up my street. R&B/soul. Four Icelandic lads coming over like rapping choirboys. Beastie Boyzone. Haha. https://soundcloud.com/sturlaatlas/sturla-atlas-mean-2-u

2. Odd Beholder. Outstanding Swiss duo. Soundcloud calls it pop, but live it was spare, intense and fantastically beautiful. Mesmerising. https://soundcloud.com/mouthwateringrecords/odd-beholder-lighting

Definitely reminded me of A Wizard A True Star. That said, it was an album I still am not entirely reconciled to. I think it is something to do with not really liking music written on a piano/keyboard.

Keyword: Roadrunner Thanks Paul--yes this is definitely a Jonathan Richman legacy tune. I think it's quirky, truly original and arty, and it works. The vocals need to come forward IMO.

I'll keep posting links till expressly forbidden. :-)
Two acts hit the spot this afternoon.
1. TVAM - one bloke who's like a cross between MBV, Suicide and Fuck Buttons.

2. LA JUNGLE - two Belgian blokes who do utterly driving motorik. Mesmeric, and impossible to keep still, no matter how undignified.

Album of the week image
In turns delicate and devastating. An album about death and loss. For fans of Nick Drake and The Leisure Society. Don't be surprised to see this on many people's 'best of' lists at the end of the year. And they are playing Oxford next Feb as a Glovebox gig.
