Probably a longer post than you'd like - but here's the last week's worth of twitter posting from me related to music. Reads from the bottom up.
jkn: Swaying Smoke - Hidden Beneath The Soil: #minimal controlled feedback #drone darker tension #ambient #netlabel @pulicspaceslab @swayingsmoke
jkn: New Altus album "Black Trees Among Amber Skies" will be premiered on stillstream.com on Friday, March 26. Check site for times.
jkn: Just posted a link to @publicspaceslab on our rM community site: bit.ly/dzZUKE - rM will soon be home to several label communities.
jkn: Subterminal - Bright Dawn Sketches: worth repeat listening #ambient #drone #netlabel lab.pubspaces.com @sbtrmnl @publicspaceslab
jkn: RT Wow! Sound, Woodentops, House of Love, Wild Swans @compactrobot: @jkn try this? www.renascent.co.uk/
jkn: The classic album by The Sound for me was "All Fall Down". Other good ones: "Heyday", "From the Lion's Mouth". Guess I'll just dig out vinyl
jkn: Question: Why can't I find any albums by "The Sound"? Early 80's band, nearly impossible to search for on the net. I hate ripping vinyl.
jkn: I almost sprung for a Mighty Lemondrops album, but decided against it.
jkn: Echo and the Bunnymen - Ocean Rain is a brilliant album. Woodentops - Giant is hit and miss, but I remember them fondly.
jkn: I got sucked into an 80's mood and bought Echo/Bunnymen - Ocean Rain and The Woodentops - Giant on mp3. Got 'em on vinyl.
jkn: Also downloading the last few Earth Mantra releases for later listening this week. Will tweet if I like 'em. :-)
jkn: Downloading several releases from PublicSpaces Lab - will listen in next few days. @sbtrmnl @swayingsmoke
jkn: Adding several labels to relaxedmachinery.ning.com community. Why have several ambient islands when we can be one happy family?

jkn: Goldfrapp - We Are Glitter: Goldfrapp is always fun. I hear the new album is very good. #nowplaying

jkn: Was listening to StillStream.com for a while yesterday. Peaceful ambient wallpaper to balance checkbook and pay bills by. @stillstreamnews
jkn: I'm still heavily researching guitars (electric, solidbody, under $800) and effects pedals. Analog circuits, no modelling. Recommendations?
