Playlist 20.02.05 (7:51 pm)

Piles of new stuff tonight, coming out of our ears, but there'll also be a few nice flashbacks to excellent UFog music from times past.
Of the new stuff, there's a wad of breakcore, from the twisted electro-pop end (Belladonnakillz' amazing new album perverted & proud) to the raging angry noise end (Venetian Snares' anti-ode to Winnipeg), and also Chevron's very µ sounding album on Planet µ. Also new Anticon 12" from Sole (b-side featuring the delicious instrumentals from producers Odd Nosdam, Alias and Jel), a great 4-track EP from vitaminsforyou, and classical-inspired ambience from Marsen Jules.
Speaking of ambient, Severed Heads present the soundtrack to new Aussie flic The Illustrated Family Doctor, which is almost entirely beatless, sounding like early µ-Ziq in parts...

Tonight is the night that.

As you can see, I've run out of words. Luckily, my show presents a lot of instrumental music, and what the hell, if it's not instrumental the artists can supply the words for me. Newness this week comes from Apparat, one of the blokes who co-runs the Shitkatapult label. Very nice glitchy electronic stuff, here with live strings and some vocals. Also some instrumental electronic rock from Ireland from God Is An Astronaut, very much in the vein of Epic 45 or 65daysofstatic.
And because the show is 3 hours long, I have decided to make semi-official my habit of playing some Good Old Stuff among the more current tracks. Tonight, a number of "classics" that might not get much of a hearing otherwise.

God Is An Astronaut - Suicide By Star [Revive Records]
65daysofstatic - retreat! retreat! [Monotreme]
Epic 45 - River Traffic [Where Are My Records]
God Is An Astronaut - When Everything Dies [Revive Records]

Sage Francis - Sea Lion (extended mix feat. Will Oldham, Alias & Saul Williams) [Epitaph]
Ra - mmt [Coredump]
Sleepy Town Manufacture - O Nei [Sutemos]
Tiki Obmar - Helios remix [Merck]
Apparat - Not A Good Place [Shitkatapult]
Shadow Huntaz - American dreams [Skam]
