Sleepy Sun - Embrace. 🌗This record is one of those that I always forget that I own until I skim passed it on the shelf. Released on ATP Recordings in June 2009 as their first full length. Heady psych driven rock with elements similar to Black Angels and Black Mountain. This is the only album of theirs I own, for reasons unknown. Sometimes it takes just one album for me to enjoy a band, I don't tend to follow bands by members or trend. As we all have experienced many bands can take in new forms and interests with the direction of their music. This is always a good thing but I am an album guy more than fan of bands. This album is great from start to finish triggering the best elements in psych rock. #sleepysun#atprecordings#vinyl#vinyljunkie#lp#33rpm
Aquí va la selección musical de esta semana prestada de la Biblioteca de Vapor Vell @biblioteques_bcn Esta semana he encontrado clásicos y otros desconocidos. Para momentos más tranquilos y de desconexión separo al curioso Elegi, una gozada, el gran Brian Eno y que menos Four Tet, sin dejarme al rey de los matices y de la sensibilidad, Max Ritcher, at your feet. Para los momentos de locura y visceralidad, Jon Rose con China Copy, sacado en el 1998, joya. Si eres de los que te gustan los pc’s, el vaaaaapor, ponerte una chupa que te quede corta de mangas con un parche de cualquier animal feroz en la espalda, así como los radiocassetes con botones de colores, Ford & Lopatin son de referencia. Y si lo que necesitas es mantener el tempo de la semana y darle el toque melódico, B. Fleishmann, Fuck Buttons y Pantha Du Prince son idóneos. Feliz semana compadres!

Day 2: Best Record Store Score
The Drones - Gala Mill (2006)
This was really only a good score in hindsight. I found it in the racks in Rockinghorse Records in the few months before Havilah came out, which I guess was the record that really boosted them into the public awareness. You don't see too many copies around and it changes hands for absolutely stupid sums of money these days, so I'm happy to have picked it up for retail price back then.
Not too many fun-time summer jams on this one I'm afraid, in fact it's about as bleak as a record can get. Recorded in rural Tasmania (literally at an old mill), it's bookended by two of their most enduring songs (Jezebel and Sixteen Straws) and in-between it travels to some unsettling places, weaving together stories of cannibalism, convicts and cancer. The three C's. It's a quintessentially Australian album, rich with the dark horrors of our nation's violent colonial mythology. You couldn't imagine it coming from anywhere else in the world.
