Great!  I'm glad Cinchel clicked with you.  He's a good egg as well as good musician.

I just finished "Cocaine Blues" - Kerry Greenwood.  Liked the "Miss Fisher Mysteries" tv show so much thought I'd try the first book ( 99 cents on barnes and noble to get you hooked... seems like the title come to think of it.... here - have a taste ) - so now reading the 2nd.

Hey thanks, Julio!  I did that in good old Visio.  Just wanted it to stand out - and equally feature Relaxed Machinery and DataObscura.  The timing was actually coincidental -but once I saw it was APK and Robert Davies - I wanted to promote both premieres and try to join them together.  In fact - Robert (and hopefully APK) is joining us in the chat tonight!

Thanks,

John

Just a bump up to remind everyone - this is featuring Robert Davies new album on APK's DataObscura label and Chris Russell's new album on my Relaxed Machinery album.

Also, on Sunday - the new Steve Roach on Projekt will spin... check the Drone Zone page for info.

Since I'm in recommendation mood... check out Chicago guitarist - Cinchel

http://cinchel.bandcamp.com/

Most of his albums are guitar / effects - wonderful textural drone.  I've been a fan for a few years now.  His newest is stripped bare - acoustic plus delay - no massive drones. 

Highly recommended!

Anguaji - Trigger, Happy { the demos }

http://anguaji.bandcamp.com/

Read the info about the fact this is a demo.  First track is very "beaty" - the rest chill out quite a bit.  I'm loving this - 4th listen.

Pinklogik - Syn-Metry

http://pinklogik.bandcamp.com/album/syn-metry

Here's what I tweeted after my first listen this morning:  "Water color smeared textural ambient - different from her usual beaty awesomeness."

Lykanthea x Savage Sister - Sundrowned

http://lykanthea.bandcamp.com/

My first listen tweet:  "ethereal floating ambient vocal lilting clouds"

Also check out Lykanthea's first track off her debut:  Aphonia.

No worries... when I have something to post I'll post it.   :-)

Note - both Chris and Robert plan to be in chat - which will be on the front page of http://relaxedmachinery.ning.com - during the show.  We've also had Rusty from SomaFM join us for chat - really a fun time.

If you can tune in to DroneZone to hear the new albums - that'd be great - even better - join us for chat!

I think it's sad when people leave. Forrest is a good egg.  I do find myself deterred from posting here very much - I almost always get a negative sounding post from one person in reply and it drives me nuts.  More than once I've been going to post and then decided... nah - I'll get jumped on as soon as I post.

Everything and Nothing / Re: World Cup ?
« on: July 09, 2014, 06:43:21 AM »
I'm not a sports fan in general... I don't follow any sports until it gets to that 'holy cow - it's an artform' level of the olympics, or the stanley cup, or world cup.  ...and then it's just the highlights now and then. 

I've enjoyed the world cup highlights a lot.  Tim Howard was a monster - well an octopus at least.  Germany yesterday vs. whoever that team was... I think they snuck in and wore Brazil's jerseys.  Wow.   

I do find football to be one heck of a sport - when it's exciting - it's exciting!  And how the heck do the athletes run up and down the field non stop for literally ever...?  Baseball you get a nice rest after every pitch.  Football (american) - the game itself is what...5 minutes total?  but takes 14 hours to play.   

Anyway... hats off to the World Cup - some amazing, and very artful, athletes.

Hey - I don't often cross post over here - but I know a lot of Igneous Flame fans around...  head over to http://relaxedmachinery.ning.com/ today - and click "THE DARKROOM" image at top... that will open a gallery of a ton of photos Pete has posted for us over at rM.

I think you'll enjoy them - you don't have to be a member to see them.
