Tonight I picked up the new Harold Budd/Clive Wright CD, "Candylion."  Wow, this one is SO much better than "Song for Lost Blossoms"!  While Blossoms was a good release, some of the tracks were just too long and I felt it could have been a stronger album overall.  Candylion benefits from shorter pieces/more musical ideas, plus it is just stunningly gorgeous music.  This has everything I ever liked about Budd's music.  Some of his best music in years!!!

Well I ordered the new Oophoi without hesitation.  I can't imagine it'll be some kind of glitchfest like a 12k release.  I'm sure it'll have a healthy dose of majestic space drones, glitches or not.  I am super excited about this release!

If I don't get, ahem...relief, soon, I am contemplating doing this.  Besides being illegal/risky healthwise/morally wrong, is there anything good about it?

Who you callin' dumb ass?!!! I have never ONCE killed myself doing this...

Hi Stephen,

Ceasing is a great album.  That's nice they compared it to Stalker, although I'd say Ceasing is more outer-space kind of stuff to me whereas Stalker is kind of a "haunted (terrestrial) landscape" disc.  Both are spooky, though!  ;D

You haven't listened to enough, or the right, Namlook yet.  Try 62 Eulengasse, Shades of Orion 2, or 2350 Broadway.  It's all about the detail, dude. ;D

Yes but I don't hear a high level of detail in his music.


I don't know about "gear whore"--he makes his living doing electronic music, nothing wrong with keeping up with the latest gear, especially if you can afford it and it's part of your trade.  I thought the most interesting point Namlook made was about how his recordings are "experiments," and it's up to people to decide if they like it or not.  (He's often accused of releasing too much music).  Sounds like a healthy attitude to me.  He doesn't sit around and wonder if everybody will like what he's doing or try to please everyone.  Anyways, thanks for posting this, enjoyed it a great deal!  :)

Anyone else having a problem ordering from Hypnos store? I keep getting "internal server error," and I've tried ordering on three different computers, with the same result. 

The Alio Die/Aglaia is excellent, as is the Sleepy Town Manufacture disc (Beautumn side project).

Don't EVER call me "Boss."  These smart-ass young guys in stores always always tryin' to be cool and at the same time insulting.  I tell them I ain't your boss, dude. Next guy to call me boss will wish he never did. Word up to yo mutha!!!

I will start on my exercise program tomorrow.  Tonight, however, I will order another pizza and veg out on the couch melting my brain with Hypnos CD's, which make me not want to move except lie perfectly still and gain more weight.

Is it just me or is the state or current rock music incredibly sad??  Am I just getting old (41) and just not "hip" anymore?  I've been playing a lot of "old stuff" like early/classic Journey, Genesis, Yes, etc. and DAMN it makes you wonder where the MAGIC went in rock n'roll.  Now playing: Journey "Captured".  What a f'ng KICK ASS band they were!!!!

Thanks to Mike and Lena for sending me the CHILDREN of Alcyone disc with correct title, without requesting a replacement. Nice! You are da ambient bomb...

Siouxsie and the Banshees reissues--"Hyaena," "Tinderbox," "Kiss in the Dreamhouse," and "Nocturne."  Definitely worth getting if you're a fan, they sound great w/some very good bonus tracks.

Seren, are you working on anything new these days?

Chidlren of Alcyone will be the followup to Children of Alcyone, followed by Chidren of Alcapone.  ha ha

Regardless of typos, this is another great Brand disc.  Highly recommended to all space chidren and chidlren of ambient. 

There's a typo on the disc label: it reads "Chidren of Alcyone."   :-[

Barry Craig=Barry Andrews from Shriekback? Look closely...

But seriously, I got this Garcia disc today.  I think this is far from the best thing he's done.  The first two tracks were pretty ho-hum.  The third piece, "From the Bottom of the Sea," is great (maybe my fave Garcia piece) but it is NOT new, this was on the "Maybe Forgotten Forever" 2-disc retrospective several years back.  I was really looking forward to the 18-min. "My Minimalist Life", only to find it overly long with a repetitive and quite annoying theme. Nothing worse than a bad idea extended to almost 20 minutes...Trance Port could take some tips from Hypnos Secret Sounds on how to do a CDR release right: don't use sticker labels (the one on my copy was somewhat haphazardly placed on the disc, and I can feel a "bubble" between disc/label, it also overlaps slightly over the center spindle); don't use cheap paper for the booklet.  Overall, a decent release but musically the pieces are really different.  I would say this is more like a collection of tracks than a cohesive, flowing thing.  I would recommend "Maybe Forgotten" over this one.
