Playlist 12.04.09 (11:18 pm)

Started tonight with something of an epic on the Preservation label, from Iowan guitarist Evan Miller. The album's mostly in the James Blackshaw vein of cyclical guitar picking, but this track is a cover of a blues number, replete with vocals and extended, evolving instrumental outro.
A Fat Cat compilation for their 130701 imprint gives us a lovely new Hauschka tune, and we've got a reprise of the stunning Quinta album from last week, as well as konntinent's arctic wastelands and some electronics also from Keyboard Choir.

The main event for tonight was an interview with Paul Gough aka pimmon, he of FBi show Paul's Playlunch. Many topics were covered (underlaid by heaps of pimmony goodness), and we got a special live pimmon track at the end.

The amazing Machinefabriek track that followed comes from a new compilation called Borghesia, for which four artists were given a degraded sample from Henryk Górecki's Symphony No. 3 to base a piece on. Machinefabriek's is one of his long crescendos, and ends up satisfyingly massive and distorted.
Shoeb Ahmad sent in a version of a track from his new album that he did specially for The Silent Ballet, and we got a track from St. Just Vigilantes' album of last year, performed live on a limited EP. reigns made a big impression last week, and continued to deliver, after which we heard from Amon Tobin & Doubleclick's rather excellent collaboration Two Fingers, and Senseless Records' excellent new pair of compilations, Vocals and Versions Vol 1 & 2, mixing dubstep, grime and other dubwise genres.
Sydneysiders Telafonica also seem to have been listening to some dubstep, although their new album ranges from indietronica to techno - more from them next week! Clingtone's bizarrely ramshackle electronica followed, and then Silver Bone Tone contributed a piece of almost-drum'n'bass, sampling, of all pieces, me for a little vocal snippet (unrecognizable mind you).
Robert Logan's album is coming in the next week or so, but the glitchy cut from his previous was very fine indeed, followed by Clark's foray into vocals, and Switch's fab dubstep-ish remix of Björk.
