i'm not looking for themes. just looking for what music is soothing ya in this time...

right now it's

My Dying Bride-Turn Loose the Swans

it's putting me in the gloomy yet not desperate mode I need to be in.

Good call. I'm not feeling MDB's new one nearly as much due to the weaksauce vocals.

Anyway, Richard Skelton's LASTGLACIALMAXIMUM has been filling that void for me by expanding it.

romanesque architect (pomenitul), Sunday, 15 March 2020 01:20 (three weeks ago) link

weirdly that's the main issue I have with the new one too, even though I think I *like* it overall.

it just feels a little too, uh, by the numbers.

sorry for butt rockin (Neanderthal), Sunday, 15 March 2020 01:21 (three weeks ago) link

feel ilke Nick Drake is gonna happen before the night is out. Five Leaves Left is my go-to in strife times.

I have a list, of course.

lol at Gucci and M.I.A.'s "Bird Flu" making the list. good call.

Last 2 weeks:
All the Dr. Rob tributes to Andrew Weatherall on Mixcloud
Fort Beulah N.U. / Woodleigh Research Project 127 to Facility 4 / Stockwell Steppas EP / Various Weatherall 12" mixes
Rotla - Transmissioni
CFCF - Liquid Colours

I suppose it's just music I can lose myself in, rather than reflecting a particular mood. Suppose i'm resisting putting on A Virus With Shoes EP.

Also, uh, Burzum's latest, Thulêan Mysteries, is the kind of cinematic dungeon synth for failed fantasy writers that works especially well when you're self-quarantined in a basement.

anybody got any jazz to suggest for sleep times? I don't mean smooth jazz on upper 90s radio stations to ignore in the background, something with a beat that is interesting but nonetheless will make my limbs lose their tension

Throbbing Gristle only for the foreseeable.

ECM is the first word that springs to mind. Dunno, have you heard Collin Walcott's Cloud Dance?

If you're looking for soothing jazz, that Alabaster dePlume record is outstanding. I find Helen Merrill really soothing.

Vanishing Point (Chinaski), Sunday, 15 March 2020 11:13 (three weeks ago) link

On the bedtime jazz tip - try Japanese pianist Hiromi, her recent album ‘Specturm’ is great and yellow Wurlitzer blues is getting lots of plays right now.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Sunday, 15 March 2020 11:17 (three weeks ago) link

The Go Hirano album - that Tylerw linked to on his blog - is my go-to late-night Japanese thing at the moment. It's ostensibly ambient but it's almost got a backporch primitivism feel to it. It's fantastic.

Gimme Shelter, Ventilator Blues, Salt of the Earth, all seem pretty appropriate. (Spare a thought for the stay-at-home voter.)

Also my brain keeps going, "Joe's got a cough/ sounds kinda rough."

Basically this, except in my room with headphones finally deep-diving into the NTS Sessions. Also Laurel Halo's Quarantine is pretty on-the-nose with that title, but its dystopian sci-fi vibes suit the times well.
