I don't know how I would deal with losing internet for 2 months. 2 hours is bad enough.

Mo Boma - Jijimuge One: Hut Song/Chronos

Jijimuge is a great album. Not a lot out there quite like it. The closest comparison point would be Jon Hassell, who actually discovered the band and helped them to get signed to Extreme Records back in the day.

Mo Boma's four Extreme disks are some of the best things ever released on that label.  Beautiful, creative music.

After a few listens, I gotta say "meh".  If it weren't for Steve's name being on this, I doubt it'd get noticed amidst all the other great music out there.  I'll pass on this one, and patiently await his next release, hoping he recaptures some of that old magic while pushing new boundaries.

LOL, yeah I figured history, or maybe a proxy server.   ;)

I don't know if this is the 'new reality' or not, but BC is unique (as far as I'm aware) in that it lets people stream releases in effect. I've heard that may change, even iTunes limits listening to a preview. Naturally this differs from a service like Spotify, but it seems to me to be the same thing in effect, it's just that listening is free on BC.

I understand the artist deciding to limit their tracks and I also understand that the listener wants to hear the full release (which is what I currently do with my material)

Bandcamp does limit the number of times you can stream something.  I was streaming a Mick Chillage album last week; this week I tried to listen again, but I got a pop-up telling me to open my wallet.  I clicked "no thanks"; now when I hit play, the same pop-up window appears, and I can't stream it anymore.

Also, any other Grassow albums on there that you would recommend? The selection is already staggering.

I've been streaming his stuff for days now; lots of good stuff.  "Through Past In Future " was today's highlight, tribal ambient with some strange guitar/drum bits on the last track.  Worth a listen.

As for guitartists - who are the killer axe-men these days ?, I've not heard much in the way of 'hot solos' of late.

Isaiah Mitchell (Earthless) is pretty amazing; more psych than metal, but holy crap he can play.

Hi Jesse, good to see you made it over here!   :)

I've listened to quite a few of your tracks; you definitely have a Muslimgauze vibe going on, which is a good thing.  Add some strong, tasty bass lines, and you might be a good fit with the Broken Drum label, home of Secret Archives of the Vatican:  http://brokendrumrecords.com/

Me likee!

I'm a huge fan of the "Labyrinth" series he did with Lorenzo Montana.  Five releases, all fantastic.

...Especially since she is a coworker in the office.

Wait a minute...  Is this the same co-worker who now won't talk to you?

I don't regret anything I've ever done, but I sure do regret things I DIDN'T do. 

Ask her out!

then copy this twice and shift them by 1/3 and 2/3 the length of the original sound so you end up with 3 tracks of 10 minutes:

A:  ............/............/............/............/............/etc
B:       ............/............/............/............/............/etc
C:           ............/............/............/............/............/etc

Another trick is to time-stretch the B and C tracks:

A:  .........../.........../.........../.........../.........../etc
B:       ............./............./............./............./............./etc
C:           ................/................/................/................/................/etc

They then gradually get out of sync the longer they play, eliminating any sense of a steady rhythm, and ensuring that the whole soundfield is constantly evolving.

I've been on a huge Docetism kick lately; great stuff, deep dub drones.  Not sure what the religious theme has to do with any of it, but the music is solid.  Highly recommended.

Thanks Mike, I'll take a look at that.  But she's moved on to her ipad, so I don't think she'll use the laptop ever again anyway.  lol

Finally.

My wife bought a laptop right when Win 8 came out, and had to get it, despite wanting 7.  She hates it so much she never uses that computer.  I've tried to get used to it, but it forces me to completely change the way I use the desktop, etc., so I don't use it either.  Very expensive paperweight.   >:(

Roach's newer stuff seems to be "low level listening" music, more for background than deep focus.  It has a place, IMO, but it's not why I like Roach.

The more active 'tribal' stuff from 10-15 years ago is more engaging to my ears.
