Playlist 19.04.09 (11:16 pm)

Tonight started with something from the Kissing Kin 7" series on Hidden Hive Records - awesome banjo-driven indiefolk... Clearly I'll have to investigate Le Loup further.
DM Stith is an associate of Sufjan Stevens, and is appropriately on the Asthmatic Kitty label. He has also remixed fellow Asthmatic Kitty My Brightest Diamond, but I haven't found a way yet of getting hold of her exciting remix EPs, so we'll have to wait on that one.
I've been mega-excited by the new Tim Exile album for some time, so it's great to have it finally on the shelves in the shops. I played a couple of tracks from his past as just Exile - awesome forward-thinking drum'n'bass and more. It's also great to hear some full-on drum'n'bass tracks from Silver Bone Tone of late...
Jon Hopkins is coming to Sydney later in the year for the Brian Eno-curated Luminous Festival, and I'm hoping to interview him soon. The album's a fab mix of chamber string/piano arrangements (here and there) and crunchy ambient electronica.
Also in the electronica vein is the excellent Robert Logan, whose new album arrived this week and lived up to all expectations.
A couple of new dubstep tracks off vinyl followed, and then one of a few Genghis Tron remixes I'm going to have to be featuring in coming weeks.
Themselves are back, and while you may have downloaded their "mixtape" theFREEhoudini a few weeks back, I finally received the "deluxe" CD edition this week, with separated tracks and a few extras. For all your alt-hop needs...
Amazing postrock/glitchtronic band 65daysofstatic went touring with The Cure last year, and continue their obsession with John Carpenter by naming their live album Escape From New York. And it's ace, of course!
Sydney postrockers The Dead Sea made their album available for one day this Saturday in honour of Record Store Day, so I traipsed down to Red Eye and grabbed a copy. You'll have to wait a little longer.
Meanwhile a bit of UK postrock history has been made available again courtesy of Fridge's Early Output album, collecting highlights from their earliest releases, on Trevor Jackson's Output Records. Fun stuff, and while they progressed into one of the most amazing bands ever with their Eph and Happiness albums, there's some really valuable stuff on here.
Higamos Hogamos combine krautrock and, well, ROCK on their debut album, and the final track is pretty amazing.
Finnish artist Hannu makes amazing subtle filigree-laden electronic folk, and tonight can (also) be found remixing Leeds band Dakota Suite, as can the wonderful boats. And check out those ukiyo-e remixes (download link below) while you can! Long lost Sydney postrock...
Longtime member of the boats and the remote viewer among many others, and one of the guys behind the amazing Moteer label, Craig Tattersal is finally releasing some of his solo music, and the suitably-titled the archivist album the keeper of the library brings us some of his lovely minimal electronics.
Finally, Sydney's Telafonica combine indie and electronica perfectly, and Iowan Evan Miller brings us some more of his wonderful guitar-picking skills.
