Playlist 10.08.08 (11:21 pm)

Tonight, some wonderfully demented music from High Places at the top, and Lucky Dragons near the end, along with more demented stuff from Hans Appelqvist (from whom much more next week!)
Along the way, we had more from the amazing James Blackshaw, and from the lovely Gas reissues, plus something from the bonus CD 4ad put out with their UK version of the Atlas Sound album. In a strangely similar vein, some spooky ambient stuff from Wollongong trio a slow rip.
Fabulous postrock from Apse, and stupendous hip-hop (meets industrial meets shoegaze meets the kitchen sink) from Dälek, from whom much more in coming weeks!

On the local front, I finally tracked down Melbourne (via, well, the world) outfit function's album the secret miracle fountain overseas, and it's wonderful stuff. Sydney's Preservation release US folk singer Tan or Boil, enlisting Aaron Martin to do arrangements & collaborations, and bringing in Melbourne's Part Timer to do extra remixy biz on a couple of tracks. It's fantastic stuff.
Also, two tracks from Newcastle band Firekites, beautifully recorded acoustic instruments plus some nice electronic touches, effected drums and the like. Very fine debut. And Holly Throsby's new album is as beguiling as ever.
