Playlist 26.01.14 (9:07 pm)

Plethora of great music again, from a few sources, and a couple of little specials as well...
Yet another selection from Lost Tribe Sound's Benoît Pioulard remixes, available now on 2CD and digital. This very listener-friendly one came from the duo Graveyard Tapes, made up of Matthew Collings and Euan McMeeken.
And then one more minimal techno cut from last week's very popular a new line (related), out in the next month or so from Home Assembly Music.

Scottish arts collective Transgressive North have just released an excellent download compilation called BOATS in conjunction with the charity Scottish Love in Action, who give support of all sorts to destitute children on southern India. Their beautiful voices feature on all the tracks on this compilation and bring a remarkable coherence (and joy) to the whole thing, across indie songs and glitchy experimental electronics... Highly, highly recommended.

Then we heard a number of selections from London's post-jazz (for want of a better term) ensemble Piano Interrupted, who followed a re-release of their first album on Denovali last year with a new album augmenting the piano & laptop with their live musicians on cello, double bass and percussion. They were first introduced to me via a remix of ex-pat Adelaidian now resident in London, Inch-time.
And then also on the Denovali label, a bit of evil percussive drone from Canadian master Thisquietarmy.

A few other releases from this week, including a remix by the inimitable Icarus of a Russian/Ukrainian drum'n'bass pairing, and then some exquisite vocal processing and sub-bass from Holly Herndon.
Plus some similar amazing electronics & processing from Sydney composer Nick Wales (of Coda) and Sarah Blasko, written for Sydney Dance Company and otherwise exclusive to Utility Fog!

And the last half hour was dedicated to Mr Stephen James Wilkinson aka Bibio, out with a new EP this very week. As it harkens back to his earliest gauzy guitar folk-through-sun-stretched cassette outings, we travelled back to his first releases, through the introduction of vocals, electronics and beats, including his blissful first Clark remix and a very Bibio take on DM Stith.

LISTEN AGAIN to these glorious aurals. Link at bottom, stream in stereo from FBi.
