Ondo Fudd – Blue Dot (The Trilogy Tapes)

Ondo Fudd is back with a new 12″ for The Trilogy Tapes. It sounds great. I love the above track, Blue Dot, as it is pretty weird.

Gloria Ann Taylor – Love Is A Hurtin’ Thing (12″ version) (Luv’n’Haight)

I can’t stop listening to this 12″ version of Love Is A Hurtin’ Thing by Gloria Ann Taylor. I really like the drums and the extended intro until she starts singing. It really builds up and I love how it feels a bit sloppy but has a great groove to it and then the vocals kick in. Classic.

Linda Perhacs – Parallelograms (Kapp)

I’ve been listening to this album non-stop since hearing it for the first time at the weekend. Linda Perhacs is appearing on the new Mark Pritchard album. I’d heard a track on one of the Folk Is A Four Letter Word compilations that Andy Votel released about 10 years ago. I’d also head the Parallelograms track on a Four Tet mix, but it wasn’t until the weekend I had heard her first album. It’s great! Looking forward to hearing her song on the Mark Pritchard album. Anyway, below is a great little documentary about Linda and her album.

Mark Pritchard – Sad Alron (Warp)

I’ve been waiting a long time for a new album by Mark Pritchard and now it is coming out on the 12th of May on Warp and is called Under The Sun. You can pre-order at Bleep.

Why was Half Life so good?

I loved Half Life when it came out and Half Life 2. This is just a look in to why it was so good! I wish I could play Half Life again.

RA.EX289 Trevor Jackson

An interesting interview with Trevor Jackson where he talks about FORMAT and other stuff. Recommended.

Samoyed – Alba (Flask)

Samoyed is about to re-release his debut album on tape with a few extra tracks. You can listen to one above and I am assuming you’ll be able to buy the album from his bandcamp page. Only 50 copies in a hand woodblocked tape wrap.
