LISTENING SINCE THE PREVIOUS POST:

ROBAG WRUHME- 'WUZZELBUD KK'
BURIAL- S/T
RICHIE HAWTIN- 'DE9 LITE MIX'
DIGITAL MYSTIKZ- 'MISTY WINTER/CONFERENCE'
TWENTY SIX FEET- 'TWO HOURS OF PASSIONLESS TANGO'
THE ZUTONS NEW ALBUM (HEARD AT WORK)
AUDION- 'SUCKFISH'
MASTERS AT WORK- 'KINGS OF HOUSE'

on saturday i was cooking the evening meal after a day at work, listening to audion's magnificent album of nasty boom-b0om (to nick a phrase coined by a friend). audion is an alias of matthew dear. so there i was, chopping shallots and wondering whether Rose wine would be good in a risotto (Rose is THE drink this summer, get to know), thinking about matthew dear's music. specifically, thinking about his hi-hats. they're so good, i was thinking: he does hi-hats better than anyone else in the world. yep, it's the almost 2 steppy swing he gets in them,the thought went on, that's what makes them so special.
by now i was getting close to talking to myself. so the internal monologue continued: it's also the crispness of the hi-hats that make them so special, that snappiness to them, the bite. the hi-hat's on 'leave luck to heaven' are even better, i thought, but these ones are still pretty good.

i could listen to matthew dear's hi-hats all day, i said to myself.

and then it hit me. i was spending an evening obsessing about matthew dear's hi-hats, and considering devoting a whole day to listening to them. fuck's sake, how did it ever come to this? this is serious. i would say i need to go out more, but i think the opposite's probably true.
