"中国女/Chinese Woman" by Sketch Show
What a treat to be in that audience. Lots of special guests on stage for this performance. Ryuichi Sakamoto, of course. Miharu Koshi on accordian, Cornelius getting that ridiculous tone on his guitar and Hirofumi Tokutake on the big tele twangin away. That guy has a long history with Hosono, going back to the Paraiso album in '78. Some of you may remember him from the Toyko Shyness performance of Body Snatchers, duded out in western duds. Sketch Show is the name Hosono and Takahashi chose for their collaboration back in the early aughties. Keeping the YMO ball rolling . . .
"Electro Moustache 10 [Trailer]" by Fotoplastikon
from Live @ NRD, Toruń„ 26.10.2012
Remember Fotoplastikon ? Been a while since he posted. Been enjoying his youtube channel lately. Lots of trippy videos up and a few live dates. Big fun from Central Poland. Stick around for the mashup, up next . . .
"Helyszíni Bírság (Speeding Ticket)" by PR Computer
from PR Computer
Ever wonder what a speeding ticket sounds like? Here's what one sounded like in Hungary in 1983. Panta Rhei ditched their guitars and drums (as well as their name) for this recording. Synthesizers and personal computers were used. A Sinclair ZX Spectrum (similar to a Commodore 64) and an IBM personal computer were used to do sequencing. Imagine all the lines of code. The tracks on this record range from modern classical to synthpop. A lot of it sounds like a library recording. This is one of the more synth poppy jams. Helyszíni Bírság (Speeding Ticket)
"You all Are" by Sustain
Obscure Dutch prog from 1978. This is the closer on side A. Video goes mental at 4:00 . . .
"Tempo de Amor" by Herbie Hancock & Céu
from Imagine Project
Live rehearsal from Herbie's album he did a couple years back with different vocalists for each track. This is a good version. Actually longer than on the record.
"My House" by Food Pyramid
from Creation Beat EP
Another side of Food Pyramid. My House is the closer on their latest Ep released in January on These Are Not Records. This is currently my favorite track, period. I like everything about this one. Love the vocals by Sarah B. The rest of the ep is a good listen as well, this track just hits the spot better than most, lately
"Magnetic Bounds" by Tara King th.
from Uncolored Past (Part I & II)
We finally get a US release from this French quartet. Oakland label, Moon Glyph has packed this pair of eps together on a cassette. Beatrice Morel-Journel is the vocalist and pretty much the face of the band. They have quite a few vids up on their YouTube page and they're all worth a peep. This is kind of a 60s psychedelic pop sound with farfisas and harpsichords. First listen I thought I was hearing Broadcast then realized there was a different singer. Fun music
"♥All♥" by Food Pyramid & Roy Orb D.MT.
from Arp Navigators
Food Pyramid keep pulling rabbits out of their collective hats. Lots of magic in their music. This album is a collaboration with Roy Orb D.M.T. (Doctor of Metaphysical Healing). Jam packed with synthesizer sounds, as you may guess from the title, but also some nice beats and occasional guitar. First track is a nice share from the band
"Jokerman" by Caetano Veloso
from Circuladô Vivo
Coolest Dylan cover ever. Caetano sings like no other. Great band on this record full of little gems like this one
"Shuffle Disco" by Utopian Postal Service
from Special Delivery
Getting off the beaten path with this trip to the dancefloor. Shuffle Disco
