LITTLE RED TOE/FOOT FOOT SPLIT 7" ON NOT NOT FUN RECORDS
JME- TROPICAL MUSIC TRACKS.

hey, check out all that indie up there^. that's where breezing through rough trade on yr lunch break gets you. some lovely stuff there, though. nobdy and the mystic chords are like neil young trying to be animal collective, and nowhere near as grotesque as that sounds. Holy Shit is ariel pink's 60s-ish beat-pop side project, like the beatles if they were any good (joke! - don't hurt me woebot!).
not not fun are, my ultra-cool friend miranda assures me, the greatest record label in the world. i've never heard their stuff till yesterday. with them, it's the kind of deal where you have to send off a letter to america to get their music, and really i'm just too lazy. but rough trade are somehow lucky and blessed enough to pick up a few of their spectacular, beauteous hand decorated split 7"s.
very large.
and you know the one i bought really is pretty great. a bit twee for me on one side, but the flip, with Foot Foot stumbling around in the darkness and coming across like a less brain-frying Vanishing Voice, puts a smile on that face of mine.
but it's the tapes they put out that are really enticing. check this stuff out. you seem to get little magikal, occult looking objects with many of their releases. lots of wicker seems to be involved. ruff. i've decided that i need some of these in my life, as tim westwood would say. i don't even care so much what they sound like, i just need them. but i'm sure they'll sound nice...i'll keep you posted.

------------------------------
i had a haircut yesterday, and the floppiness is gone, so i can now interview grime people without feeling so embaressed at my patent indie heritage. will they see right through my tactic? course they will.
--------------------------------

i write a Phd thesis. that's mainly what i do, aside from writing the odd bits about music. writing a thesis is odd, especially one on the shifting and unstable sands of philosophy. there's always a worry that all this work and argument is built on a foundation of nothing, and will come crashing down any moment. it's exhausting. and part of the thesis did collapse this week, leaving me to sift through the rubble and ashes in the vain hope that something, somewhere could be built up into something usable again. dark rings appeared around my eyes.
also my girlfriend was away this week, so it's all been a bit anchorless for me.
but this blog is about music, so the whole point of this little pseudo diary entry is not to moan about my life, but to somehow link it back to that list up there^.
that's where the tired sounds of Burial come in. when i feel sad i don't want comfort, so much, i want hardness, purging all of the badness out with no mercy. and Burial, for all the twilight dreaminess, isn't particularly wistful. there's a tough, nervy energy in the beats, and the rips and howls of the synths. it doesn't gaze at its shoes. it gets on the night bus, london flickering by. gotta keep moving...
staring down soot-caked tube tunnels, the thesis churning over in my mind, under flickering strip lights, listening to Burial, trying to match how i feel with its resolve...

but more than that, i've wanted to run round the Common till i feel sick, listening to jeff mills play techno at uncomfortably loud volumes. may be that's aiming for a sort of oblivion (but a healthy oblivion!). i've listened to soundmurderer's jungle mix over and over, in the hope this storm of information will somehow clean my head out.

and i guess it's all worked. after all, here i am, feeling so light-hearted and listening to indie.
