When The Boat Comes In………………

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011
By way of a diversion, I read about the world's largest stop-motion animation, produced in association with Aardman Animations, home of Wallace & Grommit. All the more remarkable as it was filmed on a series of Nokia smartphones. Yes, PHONES!
Only just got round to actually seeing it & it's really rather good.
Here's the film:

Here Comes the Sun……….

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

I recently put up a couple of ‘casts from a tape I made. Originally it was going to be Vol 2 of The Dungeon Tapes, but whilst prepping them for upload, I saw the unusually glorious weather outside & changed my mind about the title.

 

I think this says so much, doesn’t it?

I think despite that, this is the kind of music to listen to outside, enjoying the sun…………

 

Label Love? Mmmmmmmm…..

Label Love Vol. 3 Cover Art

Came across this compilation via Twitter, the’ Label Love’ project. It appears to be a labour of love, featuring amongst others, contributions from Stones Throw & Tru Thoughts labels, &  I’ll leave them to best describe it:

 

‘Label Love is an eclectic yet unified bundle of unique sounds compiled simply for the love of sharing them with the universe – each track plucked and presented by label heads from Decon Records, Fat Beats, One-Handed Music, Stones Throw, Tru Thoughts, Wah Wah 45s, and Wax Poetics.

Each label evokes its own signature giving this collection a diversified and interesting flow of genres. Label Love consists of nostalgic classics, unreleased gems, and exclusive selections with the goal of expanding minds to new musical styles. ‘

The series is currently available via Bandcamp & best of all, they’re all FREE!!!
