Playlist 05.04.09 (11:20 pm)

OK. Tonight, quite a few samplings from a wonderful compilation that Room40 have put together for their Fabrique festival.
A shoegazey longform collaboration between two Italians on Sydney's Preservation label, and an old(er) collaboration between Jasper TX and Machinefabriek, as well as a gorgeous track from Jasper TX's new album...
And then... some utterly beguiling tunes from Quinta, the latest artist to be released on London-based Tartaruga Records, whose presentation is second to none, and who have a real talent for finding mysterious and unusual music. From the sounds of this album, Quinta is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and composer of huge talent, so you should go and purchase her album from the label right now :) Think Pikelet with violins and not loops, or something.
A long track from the rather scary Extra Life - next week, maybe one of the more rocky numbers. This track appears in a different form on a split 12" with Nat Baldwin that I've played a little while ago.
Aleks & the Ramps have a new (split) single, an album on the way, and will be playing in Sydney soon! Wehey! Thursday 30th of April @ the Hopetoun Hotel. Dig it.
afxjim is Travis Baird from Founder, and his album isn't released yet, but it's fokkin great and you'll be hearing it plenty round these parts. Hopefully someone snaps it up real soon. Influences including Mice Parade and Four Tet, but it's all him, and all great.
Beaten By Them are a multinational postrock band, and as they feature a cello they get immediate thumbs up from me. This was a lovely track too.
It's wonderful to see that Reigns are now on Monotreme. Amazing mysterious postrock(ish) sounds, with great sound design and weird narratives behind their albums.
Then we had two tracks from sound&fury's ongoing split 7" series passeridae, which you should seriously consider subscribing to. Beautifully packaged slices of wondrous music.
Also, a favourite track from Kid Sam's debut album, finally available in stores (at least, in some stores!) - Mice Parade-style postrock (to these ears) grafted onto perfect indie songwriting.
konntinent brings us icy crunchy ambience, and Stendeck's a little more overwrought, and then we're in the home strait with a stunning (stunning) tune from David Sylvian, remixed by Sweet Billy Pilgrim). I played this because the latter have just released (or are about to release) their debut album on Sylvian's Samadhi Sound label, and it's a lovely thing too.
Oh yes, and there was a stone-cold classic from Talk Talk in there too.
Finished up with something from Paavoharju's previous album Yhä Hämärää, which I only just got hold of, but it's amazing - a whole lot moreso than their latest in fact.
