Playlist 26.10.08 (10:27 pm)

Jumping all over the place tonight in true UFog fashion. Started with a fabulous mini-album from Cex called Dannibal, which seems to take miniscule fragments of Steely Dan and turn them into, well, Cex...
Then a new mini-album from The Chap, and a new 7" pitting Various Production vs Virus Syndicate... and amid the breakcore we have something kinda prog'n'bass from the (fairly patchy) new Squarepusher album.

Anthony Buck is best known as Tony Buck from The Necks but he's leaning more towards his hardcore/punk background with his new projectTRANSMIT. Excellent drum-and-guitar-driven stuff, more of which next week. And another experimental drummer from Sydney,Robbie Avenaim, has a new album too.

There's a new digital-only (I believe) mini-album/EP/single from Shearwater, taking The Snow Leopard from the latest album and adding a bunch of wonderful b-sides. Among them is a cover of Talk Talk's "The Rainbow", and listeners tonight were subjected to a little diatribe about how, while it's a beautiful cover for the most part, it mucks up the two most beautiful piano chords in the whole piece (they appear in the drop-out just after the chorus if you're interested), which is a major drawback for my enjoyment of their version. So I played all 23 minutes of "The Rainbow/Eden/Desire" from Spirit of Eden, which is a iconoclastic truly bit of music anyway...

Sunken Foal is Dunk Murphy, who is/was half of Planet µ act Ambulance. The Ambulance track I played tonight is a beauty, but the new album from Dunk solo is a corker. You'll hear more Sunken Foal next week for sure.
And you should also hear more from the d_rradio Remixed album. On tonight's closing track, the matinee orchestra give High Places a run for their money (I vaguely feel...)
