New Music Listening Tuesday, May 22, 2012

YTD listened to: 302
Good music, not recommended for purchase: 161
Not good music:130
Buys: 12 (not all 2012 releases)

I listened to 4 releases on Bandcamp.  As Bandcamp is a DIY place where a lot of musicians start out I will feature only music I dug on Bandcamp.  I will save my negative feelings for the larger, more established labels and musicians.

@@@  You should check out the second tune on this link.  It is from works in progress by Von Nohrfeldt.  The music is a hybrid of spacious electronic noise with glitched rhythms.  Not really a tempo per se, it unfolds at a walking pace with more sounds introduced as the 9-minute piece rolls on until it’s fairly dense.  I’d like to hear more from this musician, there’s nothing to buy, just listening but it’s interesting music.

@@@  You can check out a couple of tunes from Le Super Borgou De Parakou (1970’s Benin)  over here.  Or below.  That is some funky shit, and I would love to check out more, but this record is not up on Spotify and I need to check out the whole record before I plunk down cheddar.
