Playlist 30.01.05 (9:05 pm)

Starting tonight with one of the 3" CDs from ROOM40 that I mentioned last week - some nice slightly bent indie-folk stuff. More of that, glitched-up subterranean guitar dirges from Keith Mason. Later, a bunch of awesome new(ish) breakcore, including a great new double vinyl comp from a local label. Later on, some gorgeous solo piano from Gonzales, Sage Francis teams up with Will Oldham, something rare I was able to snap up with one of the first copies of the new Hood album, not to mention some classic Miles Davis from In A Silent Way, ambient jazz precursor to everything from the Necks and Talk Talk to Squarepusher and more...

Playlist 23.01.05 (1:14 pm)

Tonight a bit of stuff which is new to Utility Fog, if not to the world. Hungarian artist Tigrics has a few albums out which I'm ashamed not to have discovered earlier, and I'll be playing a few tracks of his tonight. Also received some excellent new 3"s on Brisbane's ROOM40 label, whose head honcho Lawrence English played @ Frigid tonight - unfortunately didn't manage to play 'em, so next week we'll have lots from those releases...

Community service announcement: that perennial Kid, Miguel Depedro aka Kid 606, is playing @ the Beck's Festival Bar this coming Friday, the 28th. This little kid has a FourPlay gig on, but I do recommend heading down there to catch him if you can - last time he played he blew everyone's heads right off with a set that surpassed everything he's released, so it's fair to say that even if you're not the biggest fan of his albums, you'll likely enjoy the show! Oh, and the price has gone down from $35 to $25...
Tonight, his best mashup track plus the best Kid 606 track the Kid never wrote.

Playlist 16.01.05 (6:36 pm)

Tonight, tonight... In all honesty, there's not a lot to say, hey. There are a few new tidbits to thrill and chill, and a few select older things I've pulled out, and a bunch of stuff in the middle. How descriptive! And a few longer tracks make the playlist seem short...
A couple of not-yet-released things too, including possibly a new track from Amon Tobin's soundtrack to Tom Clancy's (yeah Tom Clancy, go figure) Splinter Cell 3: Chaos Theory. Very cool soundtrack out on March on Ninja Tune, hurrah!
And I discovered one of those things that crops up now and then: an artist who, due to this'n'that, has never appeared on Utility Fog despite being highly deserving. In this case: Nobukazu Takemura. His output of late has been less than inspiring, but there's so much awesome older stuff that I needed to shove a few tracks in your face tonight... Remixes tonight, maybe an album track or something next time.
Starting tonight with a few tracks inspired by having seen the very sweet movie Garden State yesterday. First track from original vinyl, with my Mum's name on and all :)

Wow! It's 2005! And I'm 31! It's my birthday today, so I've decided to... well, effectively to give myself a much bigger job by going all-out with a genre-defying show of "stuff wot I like". We had gypsy-klezmer, folk-jazz, indie-punk, you name it, with a bit over half-hour drum'n'bass mix at the end, just to add some regional colour to the proceedings.
