Hi there! I hope you're doing well! I'm pleased to announce the release of four brand-spanking-new [artist]Dual Echelon[/artist] tracks, forming part of my next full-length release, [album artist=Dual Echelon]Surfaces[/album]. They are: 1) [track artist=Dual Echelon]Heart[/track] 2) [track artist=Dual Echelon]Strong Force[/track] 3) [track artist=Dual Echelon]Closely[/track] 4) [track artist=Dual Echelon]Fridge[/track]. These new tracks are still heavily based around various recorded and found sounds, but the overall approach is more dense, layered and rough compared to my previous album, [album artist=Dual Echelon]Audionary[/album]. It would be great if you could give it a listen and let me know what you think! All the best, Will (-:
do you have any idea where i can find the first three Troubled hubble records?
Slow Plant Entrance EP (Magic Spot Records, 2000)
The Sun Beamed Off the Name Maurice (Magic Spot, 2001)
Broken Airplanes (Magic Spot, 2001)
Hello again! It's been a long time, but I'm very pround to announce that there are now 4 brand new Dual Echelon tracks available for streaming and free download, as part of my upcoming second album, [url=http://www.last.fm/music/Dual+Echelon/Audionary]Audionary[/url]. This album will be based almost entirely on recorded sounds, instruments, and samples. It would great if you could listen, tag, comment and let me know what you think! Thanks, Will
Yeah, I really like that Hannah! Beck is someone I always mean to listen to properly (instead of just liking "Loser" etc) but Cornelius passed me by until very recently when I bought a comp called "Everything Is Nice, Matador Records 10th Anniv..." On it is "Count Five Or Six" by Cornelius which I really like. I bought the comp just for the Wisdom of Harry track "Schtumm" which I couldn't find anywhere. Have to say I was disappointed as I much prefer the stuff on "Torch Division" and "House of Binary". Hey, did you ever hear the track that Beck sampled the "Loser" guitar riff from. It's a really good version of "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Johnny Jenkins with Duane Allman on guitar: http://youtu.be/udAJV4dVNyY
I must search out those psych/folk rock bands to listen to Hannah. Shame Last FM no longer has much to listen to for free! My favourite band as a kid was Hawkwind in the 70s. Never thought of them as folk rock at the time but they seem to be regarded as one of the Grand daddies of psych/folk rock. I like that whole summery feel to that kind of music too. When I listen again to Hawkwind it reminds me of hanging about the estate on my bike in the long summer evenings when I was about 14 or 15. Pure nostalgia!
Sorry, late replying! Yes I can see the Dandy Warhols similarity Hannah. The Weather Prophets Best Of is called Blue Skies & Free Rides and is very good. And there was an earlier comp called Diesel River which is shorter and has all my personal faves on it. I love that Coney Island of Your Mind track too and that whole album. I also like Torch Division - I like Tangled Man, the first track, nearly as much as I like Coney Island.
LOL! Usurp away Hannah! I'm on a "Pete Astor" binge. I was a big fan of The Loft and then The Weather Prophets in the 80s, which were the two indie bands he fronted. Only recently, I tried to find out "what happened to that Peter Astor bloke?". I was surprised to find he's done quite a bit and not disappeared into 9-5 oblivion! I think The Wisdom Of Harry stuff is my favourite of his output, after The Weather Prophets, from what I've tracked down so far. Nice to hear from you :-)
Hi, interesting library, and with some Radiohead plus 1,241 Erik Satie plays, I'm sending you a minimalist version of [track artist=jamesxvi]let down][/track]. Hope you like it :) [artist]jamesxvi[/artist]
Didn't know Desiderata before, I really like it.
The Helvetica documentary is good as it doesn't only show proponents but also oponents (but I still like it, even if it make's you think about the mass-use).
Tempted to set one up myself now. I've got hold of and listened to You Forgot It In People (yeah i did what i was told :p), love KC Accidental and Pitter Patter Goes My Heart, but for completely different reasons. What's your favourite on it? Also!You wouldn't happen to use MSN would you?
Haha, i shall and i'll report back. I got hold of a load more mp3s for Crystal Castles last night, is great night time music if you're in that mood. Is a hobby, but it's fairly stop start because i shunned digital and bought a proper camera, developing's expensive. Have put some of the better ones on my facebook. How about you?
Ah cool, was there last month. Live basically at Chipping Campden. I've only heard/got the self titled one, shall have to acquire the others. I've only got one song by Crystal Castles, but it gets played quite a bit because it's good, need to get around to acquiring an album of theirs too actually.
Yeah, seems that's pretty justified. Wish i could paint/draw, just end up going about with a camera instead.
Thanks. :).Love Fired Eyed Boy, easily one of my favourite songs. Your website claims you're in Gloucestershire, where abouts roughly? Live just south of Stratford myself.
