i have been listening to a lot of UNIFORM - WAKE IN FRIGHT

https://i.imgur.com/QCoFsDV.jpg

as i walk my dog through the empty suburban streets, it makes me grit my teeth and inwardly snarl in every direction. it came out about a year ago, last january, but they're new to me. i think one time i mentioned on ILM that i had this platonic idea of a 70s punk band in my head, when i was in high school, just before napster and all that stuff hit and it was still kind of difficult to easily research a genre and track down genre highlights. i listened to some old punk bands like the ramones and the buzzcocks but it was very different than what i had imagined. a few years later i heard wire's first three albums for the first time, and it was this odd sensation of finally finding the real version of an idea of what something sounds like. hard to explain. but i haven't had that sensation again until i ran across this Uniform album the other day. they sound like everything i want right now. i would love to see them play live, i bet it's fucking intense.

(sorry if there's already a general what are you listening to thread for this year, i just couldn't find it)

xpost i will put that next up in the queue, LBI! i still have more of november to go through, which is kind of amazing because it feels like i was listening to it all day already!

there's something really poignant about this:

A few years ago, Johnson told Young that he’d had enough of the 21st century and was going ‘off-grid’. No email, and for long periods his phone remained unanswered. But Mark Harwood, of Penultimate Press, had the number, and got through to Johnson last year. This spring Harwood, in collaboration with the Irritable Hedgehog label, are releasing a 4CD performance of November by pianist R Andrew Lee.

With Harwood’s help, I spoke to Johnson by phone. Now in his mid-seventies, Johnson would be the first to admit his memory is fraying, but in person he’s likeable and generous to a fault. I asked how he feels being hailed as the first composer to write minimalist music. He answered: "That’s interesting. Tell me again, the meaning of minimalist?"

first of all, i've been getting re-into the Mariah album from 1983. (long lost impossible to find, reissued a few years back. seems like the "hit" was "Shinzo No Tobira", but there are several songs at least as good. I really love "Sora Ni Mau Maboroshi"). then i got so into that that i did 15 seconds of research and found the Mariah guy (at that point, Yasuaki Shimizu)'s solo album from the year before, Kakashi. like Mariah, it is unclassifiable, timeless, and so good. also, i struggle with design so much, and this is a good reminder of how simple and perfect it can be:

A chap, possibly a lady, almost certainly a chap up the page mentions Blue Skied an' Clear, a compilation of covers of Slowdive songs with a second disc of original tunes. I have also listened to this record during this year, although only part of it. This is my copy:
https://i.imgur.com/8yEz1xd.jpg

That's my actual copy of the record, touched by my hands. Last year I wrote a blog post about it, which I will copy here so that no-one can accuse me of trying to drive traffic to my blog:

"Let’s have a look at Morr Music's Blue Skied an’ Clear, a compilation album stroke label sampler from 2002. Disc one has covers of songs by top British shoegaze band Slowdive; disc two has original songs inspired by the band. So it was that in 2017 I was moved to write about an album of covers released in 2002 of a band that flourished and faded in the early 1990s, as if descending a staircase into the past. I gazed at translucent figures who could not see me; I studied their ways and surfaced gasping into the present. As I write these words I imagine invisible eyes from the future studying *me*.

Slowdive was a shoegaze band. What was shoegaze? In the gap between C86 and Britpop there emerged a generation of fey, pale teenagers whose guitars broadcast formless, distorted washes of sound to an audience that craved an aural comfort blanket. The genre had a good run but the leading lights split up or ran out of ideas or ground to a halt. Britpop obliterated the traces. Britpop was brash, populist, highly commercial; shoegaze was none of those things. It had an air of passive self-absorption that was at odds with Britpop's extrovert nature.

Slowdive passed me by at the time. I was into electronic music, and in those days it was difficult to become familiar with a wide range of different bands. You either had to borrow lots of records or have a lot of money. There was no Youtube, and Slowdive was never played on the radio. I could only read about them in the music press, except that I continually got them mixed up with Swervedriver, another shoegaze band - Slowdive and Swervedriver are the same colour, both red - so I can't be sure if my memories of the band are correct. From my point of view Slowdive and shoegaze was a blip that came and went between Madchester, ambient house, and then Britpop and drum'n'bass. It was part of the sadly doomed and forgotten pre-Britpop era.

The only shoegaze band that approached a commercial breakthrough was Ride, who managed a couple of top ten albums and a top ten single, although nowadays they tend to be thought of as a pre-Britpop indie band that had a shoegazing phase rather than a fully-fledged shoegazing band. My Bloody Valentine’s second album, Loveless, is generally regarded as the high point of the genre - the loudest, most formless, most diffident of all shoegaze records, the genre’s Kind of Blue. Slowdive never had a commercial heyday, and fan favourite Souvlaki was a victim of unfortunate timing. By 1993 the music press had grown tired of shoegaze and was more interested in the likes of James, The Wonder Stuff, Suede and so forth, and of course a year later the one-two punch of Definitely Maybe and Parklife opened the floodgates that swept Slowdive and shoegaze away forever, or at least it seemed at the time.

For some reason – I know not why – Slowdive became internet-fashionable again in the 2000s. The group recently reformed and has released a new album. Surprisingly, it’s terrific; a moody, floaty ambient indie pop record that manages to be formless and tuneful at the same time. In a just world "Sugar for the Pill" would be a massive radio hit. Judging by Youtube views the band has gained a whole new following, including this blue-haired woman who was moved to tears by the band's cover of Syd Barrett’s "Golden Hair":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTZhG9YSY_c

But what of Blue Skied an' Clear? The covers on Disc One are solid but sound a bit thin, as if the bands were all pushed for time. The problem is that Slowdive's music was inseparable from the production, with the result that shorn of the band's wall of effects pedals the music doesn't have the same impact. The exception is múm's cover of "Machine Gun". The song has a killer melody but Slowdive's production was plodding and unimaginative; múm's take is subtler, and the sound would have fit perfectly on Finally We Are No One.

There's another problem, highlighted by Limp's take on "Souvlaki Space Station". The compilation was released in the wake of Warp Records' glitch-pop heyday and consequently several of the tracks have pointless sub-Squarepusher glitchy treatments that don't fit the material, "Space Station" among them. Disc two's "Fade Out Your Eyes" is a particular bad offender.

Ulrich Schnauss' "Crazy for You" is the second best cover, adding twangy guitars and a shuffling beat to the original, which sounded as if it had been recorded in a tunnel. A few years later Schnauss' version of the song was used in a Lucozade advert, sped-up:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWMpzLAAM4Y

I imagine Schnauss earned more from the advert than he did from Blue Skied an' Clear. During their career Slowdive tried to change their sound - they hired Brian Eno, although he didn't stick around for a whole album - but never really managed it. Their most recent album feels like the product of twenty years of gradual evolution rather than a sharp break, which is fine now but would have been disappointing if it was just Slowdive's hypothetical fifteenth studio album. It's fascinating to imagine what might have happened if Slowdive and Eno had hit it off; say what you like about U2, Achtung Baby was a major leap for the band and it did give them a second wind. Solvent's cover of "When the Sun Hits" reimagines Slowdive as Add N to X while Lali Puma's version of "40 Days" has something of Garbage about it but neither of them convincingly reinvent the band. Skanfrom's version of "Here She Comes" sounds like a Brian Eno solo track from one of his non-ambient vocal albums.

Disc two is a lot more variable. Whereas Disc One is listenable throughout, Disc Two has some complete stinkers, although it gets off to a great start with Manual's "Summer Haze" and Isan's "My Last Journey". "House Full of Time" and "Fade Our Your Eyes" aren't very good at all and Solvent's "Discontinued Parts" is godawful. Limp's "Silent Running" is nice - it sounds like an instrumental cover of "40 Days" - but again has tonnes of indifferently-executed, now-badly-dated glitches. I bought the album after hearing Icebreaker International and Manual's "Into Forever", which for me is the standout track. Schnauss' "Wherever You Are" is the other standout. The rest are basically inoffensive filler. That's (counts) four excellent tracks, three bad tracks, seven okay tracks. I find it hard to criticise the bands involved. They probably had six weeks to throw something together for the compilation and no extra money, so I imagine disc two is stuffed with demos that they didn't want to put out as b-sides.

Morr Music still exists. Blue Skied an' Clear was released physically on compact disc and triple vinyl. The vinyl has a poster and some twee stickers that made me smile. It's still on sale today albeit only digitally. It's one really good album of mostly Slowdive covers with a handful of original tunes as a bonus, plus some rubbish that you can skip, the end."

Just finished my 2018 year-end mix on Spotify that encompasses most of what I enjoyed this year. Sequencing builds tempo, energy, and loudness over the course of the mix and is intentionally relaxed and introspective in the first half (with exceptions), eventually moving into technicolor pop song territory in the second half.
