A tad fatigued right nowest and a shade under the weather so please excuse the relative brevity, scanty info and whatnot. The good news is, Part 2 of the Mulatu interview went down this morning and when I have the audio and time to transcribe it, here is where it shall be. I’ve got mass writing and plenty other kerffuffle up the ying yang right now, so I’m aiming for around next Tuesday, however that could mean February 2010 (and how futuristic does twentyten sound? very in my book).
Presented for your limited-time delectation at a modest 192 krillobites-per-nostril is a slice of newness from I Monster/Skywatchers on Platipus (not the trance label I’m sure, by the way is there anything less genuinely psychedelic than psi-trance?)
Is it something they put in the water in Sheffield? Is it something they don’t put in the water?… Who knows, but it truly does box above its weight musically. Have loved bits and pieces of I Monster malarkey for an awful long time, alongside their interlinked bread run All Seeing I and other related rascals from the city of Seven Hills and very little bullshit. So when I clapped my peepers on the ‘Art Of Chill’ EP (which sounds like something Kirk and I would have played on Tranquillity Bass in 1996) while pounding my web-wallet into oblivion at Juno Downloads last night, well I had to have it. In the course of writing this and sorting links etc I’ve discovered these are all taken from a rather exquisite looking comp of the same name, wish I’d have sussed that 24 hours ago!
To business… there’s a proper shaggy haired mellow psych vocal number (‘Soul Baptist’), an Air-esque (in a thoroughly good, drawing from similar stinkfluences, kind of way), a vocodourised Flaming Stainless Lips kind of deal (‘A New Robot’), a scary and possibly brilliant Speak’n’Spell cover of Tina Turner’s cringe-inducing ‘The Best’ (all bets are off on that one) and this gem.
Skywatchers album early 2010 they say, watch the ….. err skies.
