MUSIC WEEK #7

"Ouch" is the word for this week. You may or may not know, but I damaged my knee last Friday falling off a wall. Turns out it isn't so much damaged as broken - the kneecap itself is broken in half. No wonder it hurt so much. The plane and airports on Tuesday were a nightmare, but it was very good to get home. I think I may have to get surgery next week, but I don't know yet; the X-Ray from France shows a very, very broken knee, but I was moving it around more than I should have done (didn't know it was broken), so if I get a new X-Ray here in the UK, the two pieces might have floated back together again, since I have literally not been moving.

Anyway, that's been my week. Sleeping, watching One Piece and being an observer to my brother playing Super Metroid. As a result, the music has not come through as thick or fast as it usually does. I do apologise for that. I will endeavour to keep you, random, regular or persistent reader, up-to-date with the new music that I have been finding.


NOAMIKO - COUCH SURFER
Israeli glitch folk

IKEBANA - ALONE
Stark and bleakly beautiful minimalism from Japan

SPAZZKID - GETTING TO KNOW YOU
Fluttering upbeat electronic emotiscapes

INTERVIEW: YUKI ABE
One half of Tokyo DJ/producer outfit Boys Get Hurt answers the lazy interview

THE GOLDEN BOY - THAT THING
Lauryn-Hill-sampling garage-house


Favourite of the week? Well there's not much to choose from this times, and of course numerousness makes an indecisive mind work too hard, so it's a relatively easy choice: Spazzkid. Very nice. The perfect soundtrack for getting to know somebody you like, as the name suggests.

Au revoir!
