Eva Geist - Urban Monogamy (Velvet Season & The Hearts of Gold Remix)
a seductive sensualist masterpiece with gorgeous plumes of eastern promise.
Total Control - New Age Hop [Ozone mix]
Could honestly be Coil at their most floor focussed or at least one acid tab over.
VoX LoW - Now We're Ready To Spend (1981/91 Vox Low Remix)
you need to stick with this, since it's a slow kindle but it fires right up and in many ways it's 8 minutes take you from post punk disco to post punk to minimal wave to acid and onward christian soldiers marching out to war. Original
is a belter too with a killer bassline but I picked than when the single and then the elpee came out.
My Broken Frame - Black Lake (Vox Low remix)
I'd previously heard a bit of My Broken Frame and flicked them aside but Vox Low somehow found something there and this is really good.
Unloved - Lee (Andy Votel & Jane Weaver Remix)
woozily dunked in absinthe
My Autumn Empire - Garden Echoes
gorgeous low lit dream pop spangle that spins it's web betwixt Bibio, an anglicised Gentleman Losers and The Durutti Column.
Trappist Afterland - Traps Of Gold
recommend this elpee* to anyone into the more magick and mystik end of folk and it's a deserved tribute to a man who has done a lot to support a lot of interesting artists.
*Moongazing Hare and Trappist Afterland sing songs for Nathan (Ford who ran The Active Listener
, which even with it's shutter drawn for the last time is world looking into
Art of Memory Palace - Voiture Blanche Dans Le Noir
brilliant facsimile of a theme song to an imaginary French Noir
Art of Memory Palace - Sleepwalkers Theme
this band features an Idlewild and a Jane Weaver contributor.
Art of the Memory Palace - Waalhaven
I just got the new Art of Memory Palace which is good but the only song in the wild is Wretched Mortal
which is possibly the least of them but still fine retrofuturistchamberpop
I like that old time rock 'n' roll, don't try to take me to a disco.
