First Listen Review: Circuit Dex Yeux - "In Plain Speech"

Genre: Folk/Experimental/Ambient

The Good: There is a lot of excellent ambient work coming out this week! This girl takes folk and strips it down to a real minimum level, often adding twisting and curling electronics with creepy low vocals for a sound both comforting and haunting. 57 more words

The layer of dust on this here blog grows ever deeper. Alas, I haven’t done much of anything lately that I could write about. If I didn’t have my guitar, I don’t know what I’d be doing. 483 more words

The Family Jams (Factory 25)

The Family Jams
Factory 25
Directed by Kevin Barker
81 Minutes

Joanna Newsom is a gem.

Recently, a friend of mine mentioned a project she has to do for uni in which she takes a single song and makes a series of graphics based around it. 235 more words

2006

2006. Saddam Hussein was executed, Pluto stopped being a planet and people got angry about some rubbish cartoons. In music news it was the first year that downloads counted in the charts. 1,127 more words
