summersongs

Lullatone has got a new self released album in time for summer. For: • anything by a pool • ice cold drinks (with foam things around them to keep them extra cool) • just cruising on a skateboard (without too many technical tricks) • making sun tea • bonus juice at the bottom of your shaved ice • itching after sitting in a patch of really really green grass • making a funny sound while walking around in flip flops • sweating • eating dinner outside • hammock naps • spraying a friend with a garden hose • wishing you were wearing more clothes in the freezer section of the supermarket • pretty much anything involving a backyard – and - • eating way too much watermelon Summer Songs - EP by Lullatone


E*Rock - The Great Underground Empire

by Eric Mast in


tgue_600.jpg

New E*Rock album available now! Cassette via Gnar Tapes. The Great Underground Empire is a conceptual synth album based off an early text adventure game developed in 1979 that I played as a kid on my family's PC throughout the early 80's. It was an exploration of "the ruins of an ancient empire lying far underground" with no music or graphics, just glowing text on a black screen. The music serves as a virtual soundtrack performed almost exclusively on my old Prophet 600 and Juno 60 synthesizers which were released about the same time that I was learning to type in order to wander said dungeons.

FS Blumm - Food

F'S'BLUMM - FOOD (smaller)

F'S'BLUMM - FOOD (smaller)

FS Blumm has a new album out! F.S.BLUMM took a break from himself: no solo-release within 5 years (*).  A break from his musical habits: consuming quasi nothing but female-hip-hop and rootsy-dub. No pling, no plong, no guitar-picking.  Now he slowly returns, warming up his fingers with a little collection of instrumentals. Solo jam-sessions to the recording-machine.  This is not the succession of F.S.BLUMMs "Summer Kling".  One might miss those typically condensed compositions, those musical thoughts compressed in a nutshell.  This is a special inbetweenie! A little snack, some eardrum refreshment!  ..and isn't there indeed a little hip-hop-flavour left? Can't one still imagine a female rapper on top of "FRÜH" or "KLEI"?  Please enjoy this convenient collection of recordings while you're waiting for Blumm's little big next album: "F.S.BLUMM- The King Of Pling"  PLEASE DONATE! THANKS!!

(*) ..lots of collaborative releases though, with Bobby Baby, Old Splendifolia, the QDD, Nils Frahm, David Grubbs, Anne Laplantine, Lucrecia Dalt and a split-tape with Bradien

P.S.: The "FOOD"-photo was done by F.S.BLUMM during a west-coast-tour with E*Rock and Greg Davis on their way to Las Vegas at the entrance of the Mojave Desert.
