RIP Harold Budd. Died aged 84 from Covid related last week. First became aware of him in the 80s when he collaborated with Cocteau Twins on the Moon And The Melodies album. He’s done a few albums since with Cocteaus guitarist Robin Guthrie. Budd’s stuff had a distinctive lazy woozy piano sound, drift away. Very calming sound, did a lot of stuff with Brian Eno. Listening to a lot of his stuff today and his collaboration albums with Eno.

Ringo's releasing a book of his paintings. Should be awesome. Sod can't play drums after 60 years, can't wait to see what he does with a paintbrush... You'da thought he'd have the time and cash for a coupla singing lessons too, eh? Fuck you and yer fucking All Starr fucking ''''band''''.

Listening to a lot of Harold Budd and Robin Guthrie’s collaborative albums lately. Chilled out calming stuff for dark times.

Cocteau Twins’ 1988 album Blue Bell Knoll. For years this was probably my least favourite Cocteaus album. Now I love it.Maybe even more than Heaven Or Las Vegas which I probably played too much over the years and tired of . Once I got my head round Blue Bell Knoll the melodies are very very clever and intricate.

Anyone been watching the new Adam Curtis series on iPlayer? Great tunes as usual from the likes of Aphex Twin , Burial and many many more including some great stuff by This Mortal Coil from their 1991 album Blood. This tune played towards the end of the final episode , accompanied by the most bizarre fractal video featuring dogs! So bonkers. At first I thought I know the tune and that it was by Noah And The Whale but on Shazaming it turns out it’s Song For Zula by Phosphorescent.Lovely stuff.

Mm this was one of the better electronic tracks to come out in 2020


I also like Fir a lot.

Their sound seems to be 21st century whilst also perhaps influenced by old skool artitsts. Their recent DJ mix for Mixmag (on YouTube & SoundCloud) also hints at old skool influences. But sometimes I wish Bicep woild let rip a bit more, they always seem to be trying to exercise cool restraint.

FSOL comes to mind as one of those possible influences, whilst one track on the album with a church-y choral sample reminds me of Enigma (Bicep mightn't thank me for that).
And their penchant for World Music/Tribal vox (in Apricots above) has me thinking of Transglobal Underground.
(The first 47 secs of this are a bit misleading.)

^ Yep I totally get you on many of those points. I agree. Not sure I’ve picked up on the Enigma one but I will look out for it when I next listen. Yep, agreed some world music/tribal vocals on some tunes.

Definitely some hints of FSOL in one or maybe two places. Reminds me of that kind of a Egyptian vocal sample on FSOL’s ISDN “live” album in the mid 90s.

Yeah, the restrained cool thing. Not sure if you meant the mixmag thing (which I haven’t heard) or their studio albums or all of the above ,but yeah I think l get what you mean like they need to let rip a bit more.

I think it was Alex Petridis’ review he was putting the new album up there with 90s classics like Leftism.Hmmm...I wouldn’t say it’s quite up there with that one.

I see their probably most well known tune, Glue, will now be even more well known as it’s the music for a new BMW ad.

☝️ Funny, I always assumed that the track below was Bicep's best known tune. Released in 2015. It was certainly the one that got me into them.

But looking at the YouTube hits for 2017's Glue (20m) rather than the 3m hits for Just, it seem you're right. I think Just is a much better track though.

^ Funnily enough I was checking out that remix just the other night. It’s ok but I still much favour the version Chromatics play in the bar scene in one of the episodes of Twin Peaks: The Return.Think it may been at the end of episode one but not sure without digging out the DVD again.

Heard this lot a fair bit recently.Quite liking the spoken word lyrics thing.The novelty may wear though.Debut album out in couple weeks.The guitar is vaguely reminiscent of Joy Division, that sharp, angular clipped style.
