obakejaa are osaka’s oorutaichi & kyoto’s shabushabu. sounds like festival percussion upper body only ear screenburn recreation of columbus ship at double size in osaka bay with exquisite dining twice a day and the possibility of octopus. forwards!

the city just tripped into a cloud of paranoia. work is cancelled. all the masks have been sold. my brain is dragging and pushing a wheelbarrow of tinned food over a hill and into the woods, here is some countryside music to make the flu dance…



from 40 years ago vashti bunyan imagines moving out from the city tending sheep in the countryside and curling up by a log fire. 30 years later the music from the same album was eaten by a more urban setting.

martyn remixing efdemin on a stripped back piano remix. bird songs in the background and aphex deep in front. stones clatter gently underneath. keep it calm, not airborne.

finally field-recordings from the tanzawa mountains in kanagawa prefecture. from Kiyoshi Mizutani who formerly operated as Merzbrow alongside Masami Akita. rain, hail and electricity.

I saw a dog wearing a dress do a shit by a lampost this morning, which is not only a true story but another way of saying here are mixdump. still if you bend an ear, like a dog eating specially prepared pizza you shall be spoilt.

Tokyo’s BacktoChill kru (famously featuring but not limited to Goth Trad) have started running a radio wireless show on their site. the latest can be found here. don’t watch the dodgy vocal on the first track, there’s a lot of goodness here. it’s all about the ‘roots of btc’ section where they play a load of influences to their raved out dub sound. beyonce, scotty hard, tortoise, l double, ed rush, mark stewart, company flow etc. It starts at about the 44 minute mark.

mp3 tracklist and streaming here.



Cooly G also has a new mix up at Fact. It’s 75 minutes plus of fine rolling house (house rollers? something stone age like moving giant rocks into place with treetrunks?). She has material forthcoming through Hyperdub in the not too distant future.

mp3 (mediafire) mp3 (divshare) hype.

talking loud, saying nothing. talking <20Hz instead.

here is some quiet music. some of it is quiet because it’s quiet and some of it is quiet because the frequencies are too low to be heard.

杉本拓と佳村萠 – イス3
taku suigmoto & moe kamura – A Chair 3

杉本拓と佳村萠 – イス2
taku suigmoto & moe kamura – A Chair 2

(Japanese metadata)

both of these are from this lovely record.

taku sugimoto usually works through a label called hibari music. elsewhere on that label Toshiya Tsunoda’s field recordings of maguchi bay, kanagawa prefecture (map below) . first track is as recorded to DAT, the second contains frequencies below 20Hz extracted from the first.

Toshiya Tsunoda – IV

Toshiya Tsunoda – LF IV

consider it inaudible relief time for those with a hole in their download(ing/ed) stomachs.
